The software are already updated on your PC and there is no latest update remaining for your Printer and PC,
HP update only show latest version of itself available for New printers of C7100 series.
More than one antivirus, spyware and firewall present also prohibit the updates..

ALso I have noticed, you have Corrupt Window Installer problem in your system, and also Add/Remove program entries are corrup. For which you need to go for a Repair windows with Recovery CD of XP..

I need to upgrade my internet explorer6. Everytime I try, I get a message that says Unknown Publisher & it won't go any further. Can you help? Thank you


Go to the Microsoft website.
Download Internet Explorer 8 if you're using XP or Explorer 9 if you have Windows Vista or 7.
When prompted whether to save or run click save.
Save the file to your desktop and wait for it to finish downloading.
Once it has finished double click on it to install.

I have a HP Officejet 6310v All-In-One with a cd to install and it will not install all the way. At the vrey in it says to ask for www.hpcom/support for troubleshooting information "Fatal Error"...


Dear Cheryl,

I would recommend you download the latest printer software from the HP website for your Officejet 6310v.

If your using Microsoft Windows XP then visit the following link to download the software:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-35363-2&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=au&os=228&product=441126&sw_lang=&key=null&site=null

If you are using a different Operating system please visit the following site and select your OS.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=441126&lc=en&cc=au&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=au

It is a rather large download over 400Mb so may take some time. Hopefully this helps!

How to update Bios in HP Compaq DX6120 MT?


OK well ya have to go to the manufacturers web site here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=402168&prodNameId=402170&swEnvOID=1093&swLang=13&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=PSG_I22640-107317
Download to say your desktop etc, You then must make a Bootable Floppy disk, with the BIOS file on it. Then using the BIOS manager you run it, you are asked for BIOS name, after which, the software will write the BIOS file to the chip, when it is finished reboot and all should be good. There is more info at that web site too.
