Finding Drivers for HP's Officejet 6000 Wireless Printer

Now if you just purchased a new retail version of the HP Officeje 6000 Wireless printer, it likely came with a compact disc with the driver installed. However, if for some reason, you've lost it or picked up the Officejet 6000 Wireless Printer used and without the drivers, this article will tell you where to find the correct drivers.
First, let's try the manufacturer's website. Most computer hardware peripheral product drivers can be found directly on the manufacturer's website. So let's check that out. First, go to www.hp.com, then, on the top of the page near the center we're going to click on where it says, "support and drivers", next, we're going to choose the "Download drivers and software (and firmware)" option and click on that dot to choose it. Then where it says, "Enter a product name/number", type "Officejet 6000 Wireless" and click "go". Now we see a screen where it lists most of the current computer operating systems. Windows xp, Windows Vista, and the new Windows 7 are among them. Assuming you are aware of what operating system you have, find your operating system and click on it. (If you don't know, it is explained how to find out what operating system you're running below) You'll now see a list of drivers. My suggestion would be to choose the full feature software and driver. You'll have the choice of an English language only version or multiple languages. Choose the one that you want.
Now you'll see a user agreement that you may read if you wish and the file itself at the top of the page. Click on the file following the words..."File name". Pay attention to where it is saved to. After it's finished downloading, find the file, double click on the file and go through the self explanatory installation.
Now let's find out what operating system you have on your PC.
If you are unaware what operating system you are using, here's how you find out. On your Windows PC, click the "start" menu on the bottom left corner of your computer screen. Choose "Control Panel". If your view is in the "category view", click on "performance and maintenance", and then click "system". Your system properties should pop up. Click on the "General" tab at the top of the window if it's not already selected. On the top where it says, "System" your operating system should be listed. If you view your control panel in the "classic view" choose the "system" icon and the identical information will appear.
So do you have it all installed? How's your new printer working? Hopefully, you're in the midst of a printing frenzy. If you're having any trouble at all, feel free to contact HP technical support. In the USA, you can call them twenty four hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-HP invent. When you call, have your printer's Serial Number (S/N), product name, model number, and a description of what's wrong..
Good luck and don't worry. We'll have you up and printing in no time.

Got my brothers old comp, reloaded windows now wireless wont work

Did you install a retail version of Windows? You should have used the restore disc that came with the laptop when you purchased it. That will solve driver related problems if your wireless card is okay.
Check Device Manager if wireless card is still there.
If you install a retail version of Windows, check the support website. Check the wireless card's manufacturer and contact that manufacturer so they can give you the driver for the wireless card.
If you install a retail version of Windows, installing the driver from the support website might not work.
If you used the recovery disc that came with the computer, it should work.
