HP 3845 is an old printer and it is possible that the Software Disk that you have might not be compatible with Win-XP.
You can install the compatible software from www.hp.com.
Enter 3845 in the field for product and press enter..
it will give the list of all the product that are similar to 3845..
choose your product,,
on the next screen it will ask you to choose the O/S..
choose win-xp..
on the next screen select Software & Drivers..
then Full Feature Software & Driver
scroll down and click on Download Now instead of Install..
Once the download is complete..open it and run the file tinstall the software

Hi goodevening

there so so many reason why does not detect a blueray disc after you switching windows 7
1st may be your cd/dvd driver have a problem,
(solution) try to use other cd/dvd driver
2nd may be the window 7 installer you've use have a missing file.
(solution) try to re install the o.s but dont use the same cd you've use try other installer.
3rd your blueray disc is the problem
(solution) use your blue ray disc in other p.c window xp if running in xp try to use other pc using a window 7, if running in other unit may be your pc need to upgrade.

How to install window XP


This procedure demonstrates how to install Windows XP Professional. The procedure to install Windows XP home edition is very similar to the professional edition. Since Windows XP Pro is more advanced operating system, it will be used to demonstrate the installation procedure.
The best way install Windows XP is to do a clean install. It is not difficult to perform a clean installation. Before you perform the installation I recommend that you check to ensure that your hardware is supported by XP. If your hardware is not on the compatibility list you can check your hardware manufactures website to download the drivers for Windows XP. Save all the necessary drivers onto floppy disks or CD before you start the installation.

If you are upgrading from WIndows XP to Vista delete all the mouse drivers in the device manager (under control panel).
Then let Vista install new ones.

Problems with installing Active Sync on Windows xp.


Do you use companion CD for Active sync installation? Can you please tell me which driver is necessary to have? Is there any error message and what is content of this message?
