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.
