The driver for the HP DeskJet 960c should be the most current version. This will aid the printer to work well as well as being easy to operate. Without the recent version of the driver, the printing machine cannot be used and if it is running on the older versions of the device driver, it may have conflicts with the printer and other drivers for other devices installed in the system. This will in turn cause conflicts with the whole system. Weekly updates are recommended to make the printer work to its full potential. Also when downloading, make sure the driver being downloaded is the correct driver for the said device. Make a backup of the running driver when upgrading to make sure the machine can be used with the backed up driver in case the new driver is defective.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
