Hp l7780 won't complete install

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

    Same problem. L7780 installation freezes after abt 96% complete. I previously had successful installation and a functioning printer. Then I returned my computer to HP for repair after a new problem arose and computer would not boot up. HP returned the repaired computer, and they noted that they also replaced SP2 with SP3. Now with the same installation disc and same computer, the installation fails. I believe computer is looking for certain program(s) from SP2 that are not present in SP3. However, this is just theory. Perhaps someone knows if this theory is plausible and if it is possible to revert back to SP2 without causing other problems.

    Just to make sure...are you installing the software BEFORE plugging the USB cable in? Only plug in the cable when promted by the software. Comment back.

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.

The mirroring issue is a driver fault with the "Printing Shortcuts" that HP provide.

There is a firmware update and new driver which seems to have cured this on the L7680 (same as L7780 without the wireless and expansion paper tray).

Suggest you completely wipe the existing driver using the tool on HP's website before you install the new driver just to be sure nothing lingers from the old one.

HP print spooler problem and error 1068. Want my printer back!!!




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
