Windows 7: Totally get confused with HP Printers.

Totally get confused with HP Printers.

I have a Printer connected to Windows server 2008 and shred among users. When I click show me "Print Both Sides" on the printer, in prints a paper and on the top of that paper it says that it is a HP LaserJet P3010 Series Printer. On the Server it is HP LaserJet3005. And on the front side of the Printer it is HP LaseerJet P3015dn. Why is that all things are complected? How should I identify what printer I have?

I do believe when it says its a 3010 Series printer that just means its one model in a rang of printers, (3010, 3011, 3012, etc). They likely all use the same driver and its probably the driver thats adding that message to the printed page. If it says HP LaseerJet P3015dn on the front of the printer its a HP LaseerJet P3015dn. Why the server lists it as a HP LaserJet3005 I don't know? Incorrect driver installed maybe?

Yes, it is due to driver problem that the three data are not shown correctly. You should uninstall all the drivers and install them again by confirming that you are installing appropriate driver.
