Go to this page for your driver set.

Check off the "I Accept" box and then click on the download software link. It is 8 and a half Megs in size.

Download it to a unique folder or if it goes to your default download folder, then move it to a new folder you create in advance called

Before you install this software, remove the software, if any, you have installed now from Add/Remove programs. If there is no entry there, go to Start Menu, Printers and Faxes and right click the IP2500 and choose Delete. After that clean your registry up to remove any unwanted entries using this free program:

Download free SS Registry Cleaner. Run the cleaner by choosing the Fix option and this will remove any stray entries from your previous installation, if any.

Before you install the Printer Driver, disconnect the USB cable or Firewire cable and do not connect this until prompted to do so by the installer program or the installer has finished completely. This is quite important so please be aware of that undocumented requirement.

Once completed, restart your machine and you should be able to print.

Run these utilities now and after every cartridge replacement.
Run Head Cleaner(s)
Run Print Head Alignment.

If you have drag out on your paper (ink streaks) run the head cleaner a few more times. HP makes a special paper that is intended to clean the rollers. You don't need to do the print head alignment but once upon a cartridge change but the print head cleaning utility may need to run at least twice, but more often than not three times. If you see an option to do a deep head cleaner, run that instead.

If you have any questions or need some help in this process please use the comment box below to ask me.

If you need the associated software for picture editing let me know and I can post a link to that also.

I am trying to install my Canon Pixma ip2500, but on my Comapq laptop the printer is not listed - there are ip2000 and ip3000, but not my ip2500. how can i install this printer? Thanks

You need to download and install the driver if you do not have the disk, on the system you find only some printers, the rest, like yours , will need the disk.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here: Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download on the driver file at the bottom of page.

If you cannot find the driver download , If you have Vista or XP, you can use following links, depending on your Windows version:

XP and Vista Download

Vista download

Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
Afterdownloading,find the file,doubleclick on the file, if you get introubles ,then followinstructions below to reset and reinstall:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website and run the file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
Note:some printer does not work on Vista
