Try uninstalling the software and delete the printer from you "Printers and Faxes" window if it is there.

Disable your firewall and any antivirus programs you have running.

Try installing the printer again according to the setup guide.

Once installed enable your firewall and A/V.

Will HP 60 ink cartridge work with HP Deskjet 2460? Tnx.


This is all HP recommends for the HP Deskjet 2460, so I wouldn't suggest buying anything else. First of all it might not fit and second, even if it fits, other issues may come with using those. If you can't see the list here it is:

Hp 2460 to run on win 98 machine


Hi,

Probably the only way, since HP is not supporting Windows 98 anymore, is to use the Add New Hardware Wizard and then choose Printers, scroll down the maker column until you get to HP or Hewlett Packard, in the right hand column choose a printer model number with four digits starting with a 1. This is called dumbing down and it often works pretty good. There may be some print features you will be missing but you should be able to print. If one doesn't work, try another until you get an old driver that does work. This is what HP would tell you if you paid for their help.

Usually the HP Deskject 970c works, or if you see a plain entry for HP Deskjet try that too. It really is an Easter Egg Hunt.

Use the comment box below to ask any questions you may have and once you are successful and only after you are successful then rate this solution as Fixed.

Thanks,
Worldvet
