Hello,

All versions of windows since Win XP have had the driver for the Laserjet 2100 built in. When you connect your printer to the computer and reboot it should say 'found new hardware' and load the correct driver automatically.

You may be able to download a Windows 7 printer driver for your model printer from the HP WEB site.
If there is not one available, then HP considers this printer too old or not compatible with Windows 7 and they want you to upgrade your printer.
You can download the HP printer drivers from their supportWEB site. Please click on this link and select your model printer to download:- http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

Color printing in pink only. I have done the alignment and changed out all the cartridges and still no luck.


If you don't have the proper drivers, the colors could be skewed. Also, some update to windows could have botched your drivers. Visit this site to download the driver .exe. Put in your operating system, then download the driver titled "HP Officejet Pro Full Feature Software and Driver" to be sure that you have everything you need. Next, run the executable. You should be able to take all the defaults and not have to worry about it. Once that's installed, you'll most likely have to restart your computer, so once it comes up try printing something in color and see if that fixes your problems.

If the HP WEB site does not have a printer driver for the version of Windows that is installed on your computer then either the printer is too old or not compatible for that version of Windows then HP would like you to upgrade your printer to a new model printer.

Don't worry. You do not need the HP disk for the software and drivers. All you need to do is go to the HP website and download the latest drivers and software for your printer. If you have any other questions feel free to repost in this thread.

And please, don't forget to rate me!

Best of luck to you!

No printing


Well this issue must be related to the drivers of the printer, possibly incompatibility. Let's try to fix it with the easiest method.
First uninstall the driver after the printer is disconnected from the computer. Then run a registry cleaner (click here to download a freeware registry cleaner) to clear any unwanted registry files. You'll also need to clean the system using the feature with this application.
Now download this driver Hplaserjet 2100 windows vista32 (if your system is 32 bit) or hplaserjet 2100 windows vista64. Extract the files to a specific folder and follow the instructions as follows;
Click "Start" , select "Settings/control panel" and click the "Printers" folder.
Double-click "Add Printer".or click "File" on the menu and select "Add printer"
The "Add Printer wizard" will open. Select "My computer" then click "Next".
Select LPT1 (whether directly connected or networked) and click "Next".
Click "Have Disk".
Click "Browse".
The Locate file window will come up saying a: "is not accessible" . Click "Cancel".
Under "Look in" select the folder where the file is saved.
Highlight "HPLAOUT.INF" and click "Ok".
The Install from Disk window will reappear, click "Ok".
Select "HP LaserJet 2100 Series PCL 6" and click "Next".
Select the "Replace existing driver" option and click "Next". (This window will not come up if the uninstaller was used).
Select Not Shared and click "Next" .
Select "Yes" and then click "Finish".
Please don't skip even a step from the uninstall process. And do let me know when you are done.

Till then, Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Go to www.hp.com and let the website auto-detect your printer and download the drivers, however, this is pretty old printer.

Good luck.
