If you’re looking for the latest version of drivers for your HP LaserJet P2055dn Printer, you’ve come to the right place! In this post, we’ll walk you through two methods to download the updated drivers.
Option 1 – Automatically (recommended) – This is the quickest and easiest option. It’s all done with just a couple of mouse clicks – easy even you’re a computer newbie.
Option 2 – Manually – You’ll need some computer skills and patience to update your driver this way, because you need to find exactly the right driver online, download it and install it step by step.
Option 1 – Automatically update HP LaserJet P2055dn drivers
If you don’t have the time, patience, or computer skills to update the HP LaserJet P2055dn driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.
Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing. Driver Easy takes care of everything.
You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money-back guarantee):
1) Download and install Driver Easy.
2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
3) Click the Update button next to the HP LaserJet P2055dn driver to automatically download the correct version of that driver, then you can manually install it (you can do this with the FREE version).
Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system. (This requires the Pro version which comes with full support and a 30-day money-back guarantee. You’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All.)
Option 2 – Manually download & install HP LaserJet P2055dn Drivers
You can also search for the most recent correct driver for your printer, download and install it step by step. But it’s rather time-consuming and error-prone.
1) Go to the HP Software and Driver Downloads page.
HP website will automatically detect your operating system. But sometimes it won’t or you want to download the driver for another PC with other OS and versions. If that’s the case, you need to follow step 2 & 3 to change a different OS. If it detected the exact operating system you’re using or it’s the one you’re looking for, then you can jump to step 4.
2) Click Choose a different OS.
3) Click the Down Arrow and select the one that corresponds to your operating system and version. Then click Change.
4) Choose the printer driver you need.
Note: Software-Universal Print Driver (1) is for print administrators to install, deploy, configure and manage the HP Universal Print Driver. You might not need it if you don’t need those tools.
5) Select the printer model from the list of search results and click Download to download the printer driver.
Note: the screenshot shown below is for Windows 10 (64-bit), for other versions, the results are different.
6) Once you’ve downloaded the correct driver, double-click on the .exe file to run the driver setup and follow the on-screen instructions to install it.
The installation files under Driver-Universal Print Driver for Managed Services (2) and Driver-Universal Pirnt Driver (3) are literally the same. The only difference is that you need to use a USB connection to download the driver for USB connected printers.
For Windows, HP also provides you with Universal Print Driver for Windows PCL6 and PostScript to choose. So you might wonder which one suits you best.
In order to install the correct driver, you need to know the slight differences between PCL6 and PostScript.
