When do I update my Samsung printer driver

A printer driver is a tiny program that allows your printer to communicate with your computer.

Updating your printer driver can:

  • help prevent crashes;
  • improve both your computer and printer performance, etc.

If your Samsung printer is acting a bit off:

  • error notifications pop up randomly
  • it won‚Äôt even print at all, etc.

then it’s probably time to update the driver for it.

Try these methods

Both methods below work in Windows 10, 8 and 7. And as the method list suggests, you don’t have to try both. Just decide if you want to do it manually or automatically and take your pick:

  1. Update my Samsung printer driver manually
  2. Update my Samsung printer driver automatically(Recommended)

Method 1: update my Samsung printer driver manually

Here, Samsung CLX-8380 Series is used as the example printer. You might want to check your printer model to follow the steps. And since HP has¬†acquired Samsung Printer Business, we might have to go to HP’s official website to download the driver for our¬†Samsung printer.

By¬†updating our¬†Samsung¬†printer¬†driver¬†manually, I mean we go to the HP’s official website, find out¬†the latest & correct version, download the file and install it all on our own. It needs time, patience, and certain levels of computer skills. If you‚Äôre not comfortable¬†playing¬†with device drivers, or worrying about any risks in the process, jump to¬†Method 2.

1) Go to HP’s official website for driver downloads, and click Printer.

2) Type your printer model into the box and click Submit.

3) Make sure the selected operating system is the right version for your Windows OS (Windows 10, 64-bit in my example). Then click Driver РProduct Installation Software > Basic Drivers > Download (the first result for the latest driver version).

4) Double-click on the downloaded file and follow the onscreen instructions to finish the install.

5) Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

Method 2: update my Samsung printer driver automatically(Recommended)

If you’re not confident playing around with drivers 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.

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 a flagged Samsung printer driver to automatically download and install the correct version of this driver (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¬†‚Äď you‚Äôll be prompted to upgrade when you click¬†Update All).¬†

4) Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

 

There you have it¬†‚Äď manually and automatically update your¬†Samsung printer¬†printer¬†driver. Hope this helps and feel free to comment below if you have any other further questions. ūüôā
