In my opinion XP is, currently, a better operating system, but that's neither here nor there.

The sad fact is that HP is not producing Vista compatible drivers for many of their older printer models (like mine, maybe yours). Check the HP web site to see if there are Vista compatible drivers available for your printer. If so, download and install them, it should solve your problem. If drivers are not available, then the only way to get your printer to work is to revert back to Win XP.

    You did as I suggested and your problem was solved. I think that merits a PROBLEM SOLVED.

There is nothing you can do because vista has known compatability issues with HP printers and other hardware, you could go to the HP support website and look to see if any vista drivers have been released for your model, if not, you either have downgrade to XP or buy a new printer that works with vista

Okay, we need to uninstall the printer. Go to Devices and printers~right click on the HP printer and left click on Remove device. Then reboot. The correct drivers should get installed automatically. If not use the installation CD that came with the printer or better still (if the printer is old) go to the HP web site and download the Win 7 drivers/software for the F4400.

Dear Gram,
Uninstall the software, go to HP site and download the latest drivers for that DJ5550 and install.
Make sure to remove all of the HP programs that came with the software. Make sure you select the correct operating system (win98-win-me-win-xp-vista)

IF you are running Win-XP here is the site:

I have bouht hp deskjet d1500 series ihave fitted it but it said ihave to upgrade my computer to 200 from 98 please could you helpme thankyourita


  The problem is that this particular Deskjet does not have any software drivers that are compatible with Windows 98.  Only for Operating Systems that are running Windows 2000 or later. Which includes XP and Vista. The only alternative is to do some research on other printers and make sure that they will be compatible with windows 98.
 Of course, there is always an option to upgrading your computer to  Windows 2000 or Xp....

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.
