I was told that is has something to do with the registry, the printing software installs to 96% then just freezes, no error messages appear. Ive updated my pc and made over 20 attempts of installing/uninstalling the software with disc and from hp's website. I'd rather not re load windows as I have so many necessary programs. i have windows xp os. anyones help would be greatly appreciated

this is a simple problem, the technology that printer aligns its print head automatically by the reading the align page, if your printer head are not in good health/clogged align print wont come properly result align pending..When printer gets power on its prints align page till align completes. Go to tool box in system all programme, perform clean print head, check the quality of printer outs then ask to printer to align.. if its not completing replace print heads..
HP Officejet Pro L7780 Drivers I think the drivers are not installed on the new system. Please visit the above link from HP Official Support. Select the Operating System (e.g Windows XP OR Windows7 32-bit) that you have on your PC. Download the drivers/ Software and install them by following the on-screen instructions.
Ok heres what I would do; Firstly make 100% sure that ALL HP Printer related sw is uninstalled. Then reboot and use either of the following registry repair tools in these links >>http://www.macecraft.com/download/ptlite/ or http://www.comodo.com/home/download/download.php?prod=system-cleaner. After cleaning the registry restart your system and then go to this link >>>http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-47462-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=1146331&os=2093 and download the latest HP printing suite for this printer. Install it and then test printer. Hope it goes well
I have had the same problems with this unit and on various machines running both xp and vista. Uninstall completely. Then, unplug machine from the computer. Download the full software solution and before running it, extract the software to somewhere on your computer and leave it there. Then run the installer normally but when asked to connect the device, skip and choose to install the device later. Complete the software install and then when it's finished, plug in the usb cable. The installer should pop up and begin to install the device. Open the device manager and manually choose the ALL the drivers for your unit by choosing the autorun.inf in the folder you previously extracted from your hp download. Upon completion of all the correct drivers, the hp install utility will complete. I believe the problem lies with a mixing of native windows drivers and the HP drivers which are required for this software to work correctly.
Microsoft Operating System protocol is to install first and then always have drivers and applications install on top of them. More often than not the drivers are outdated and rendered unusable by many of the operating system updates and then need to be updated themselves by the relevant vendor or have to be uninstalled and then reinstalled. Of recent times this has become more and more of an issue due to complexities in the registry and in the COM fabric of the operating system. The registry often gets clogged up with superfluous entries and needs cleaning out to improve performance just like the HD inside the PC needs defragmenting occasionally. Unfortunately when many of the updates from Microsoft and many other software vendors are applied they leave their old entries in the registry and just write new ones - simply because it is convenient and easier for them to do so. Uninstall the application and drivers using the HP remove utility. It is not sufficient to use the Operating System uninstall as it does not work that well. The Registry, Application, Folders and drivers need to be totally removed. A registry clean is recommended. You can do this by downloading a free 30 day use of Ashampoo from www.ashampoo.com and clean up your system of all the unnecessary entries. I have been using it for a few years now with grate success and no problems. You can always restore any deleted entries before binning them forever. Once completed then reboot the PC then reinstall the HP drivers and application. Make sure these are the latest ones available from HP support for your operating system at
