  1. Printer Problems after Windows 10 latest update.


    I have been using a HP LaserJet 3050 for more than 10 years. Worked fine until about 2 weeks ago after an update was pushed out to me. I have tried everything to get this printer back up and working and finally got it to print this morning. Problem is it didn't print what I asked it to print or even print a test page after I finally got it to work. It printed what looks like an error message. The message is "Unsupported Personality: UNKNOWN". Now I'm sure MS is going to say it's HPs problem, but how do I know that. It worked before the update, but not anymore. I understand my personality might not be the best, but I certainly don't need my printer telling me that. Where is this problem coming from????

    :)

  4. Printer Problems after Windows 10 latest update.

    printer problem

    Printer driver issue. Possibly caused by, but not limited to:

    • Corrupted drivers
    • Driver missing an update
    • Incompatible drivers

    Is this the first time you are going to use that printer?

    Suggestion:

    • Uninstall the drivers from your computer completely.
    • Download the latest drivers of your printer from the manufacturer website.
    • Install the latest drivers.
    NOTE: Make sure that the printer drivers will support Windows 10.
