I suggest you delete the printer HP5600 (right-click on the icon and select delete). Then, download the driver from the link below :

http://www.userdrivers.com/Printer/HP-LaserJet-4240-4250-4350-PCL-6-Driver-for-Windows/download/

Reinstall the printer.

Hi,
uninstall the printer by using its uninstall in your start /programs /hp/uninstall . HP always has its own UNINSTALL.
When thats done disconnect the printer from your computer and reboot.
Now run the install again, being careful to read the screens and make the right selections and do not plug it in to the computer until it tells you to.

HP has very good install programs. Connecting the printer to the computer at the right time is important. Assuming you have no other previous printers installed, you may have just accidentally hit something on your keyboard at just the wrong time.*s* It happens to the best of us.

By doing a clean install as described above, you should be able to load it successfully. Good luck *s*

Can you e-mail instructions to set up my HP Deskjet 5940 printer to my Dell computer. My computer recently crashed while using this printer. I have another computer, but I"m unable to set up printer. ...


You can try to make sure no printer is there by uninstall all the printer drivers from control panel. Then use the CD of the printer to install it as a new one. Maybe system restore can bring you back the printing too.

Before connecting the printer put the cd that came with the printer into cd/dvd drive. This is to install drivers for your printer. Follow the instructions that comes on the screen. If nothing comes on the screen then run setup.exe from the cd.

CD LOST OF HP DESKJET 3845


HP.com/Support>HP Deskjet 3845 Color Inkjet Printer>Drivers & Software Downloads>Pick your Operating System,
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=372330&
You didn't state what Operating System you are using. I'm going to pick Vista to use as an example,

There is no full feature software and driver package for Vista. However there is a basic driver, and a workaround. Here, http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01655752&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=372330&os=2093&lang=en

If you have Windows XP, here is the driver, and the HP Essential software,
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=372330
First download the driver, (IN DOING all of this, DO NOT have the printer plugged into the computer, and have the printer turned off)
Click on -> HP Deskjet Full Feature software/driver: USB cable
(Size is 14.41MB)
It will go to your desktop screen. Double-click on it. If a window comes up that states Extraction Wizard, go up to the top right, and click on -> Extract All Files. Follow the instructions. Look for a file that has -> Setup, or a file that ends in -> .exe

It may ask you if you want to restart your computer at this time.
NO! Not yet!
Now download this for the same page as above,
HP Photosmart Essential Software for Photo Editing, Printing, and Sharing (Size is 6.19MB)
Follow the same instructions as I gave above.

Would appreciate a follow up to see if this 'cured' your problem.
Have a nice day.
