    I did that while on the phone with HP tech support, but it didn't help. The tech guy must have thrown up his hands after 2 hrs on the phone, booting and re-booting and downloading, but the same error keeps popping up to halt the installation.

    I had similar problem with installation of HP color laserjet CM2320nf. It says " Fatal error during installation. Error 1327, Invalid drive Z:. It also asked me to go to HP.com/support and look for information on MSI.selfinstallingportmonitor but I couldn't find any info on their site. My colleague spent a lot of time with HP on phone but so far no solution. Any info/ help is much appreciated.

Had exactly the same problem. Previous HP installs are causing this issue. Cleaning up temp directory (c:\windows\temp) fixed the problem.

If it is an old printer there may not be a driver for it on your current operating system. Do a search from google and type Windows Vista/7 compatible driver for "your model" printer. I had the same problem once so i found a driver for another printer and it made mine work with windows 7.

I am trying to install an hp 309 printer scanner but keep getting "Fatal Error during installation" message. Please help!


OK, I would go to the website hp.com and input the 309 model printer scanner and download the latest drivers for it and install from there for the appropriate operating system.

And, I would make sure all of the Microsoft updates are installed from online via automatic updates to make sure your computer system is up to date.

I lost my instalation cd for hp laserjet 3052 printer how to install my printer


1. Go to support.hp.com
2. In the "Enter your product number" area, typ in LaserJet 3052, or whichever model your printer is. I was confused because in your question you also mentioned the p1008. Either way, just enter in the model name.
3. Under "Tasks for HP LaserJet 3052 Printer", the first thing is download drivers and software. Choose that.
4. Then, select your language and operating system. If you're not sure what operating system you have, right click on "my Computer" that is on your desktop, and go to properties. The general tab contains the information about what operating system you have.
5. Then, go to the "Quick Jumps to download by category" and choose "Driver"
6. In my humble opinion, I always pick the driver at the top of the list, because it is most updated.
7. Click the download button.
8. In the popup window, choose run.
9. This should start the installation process.

Every time I attempt to install the software for my new hp officejet j3680 all in one I get a fatal error. This has happened twice.


go to the HP website, ( www.hp.com ) click on the software and drivers link, search for your printer and download the newest version of the software. If that doesnt help make sure your windows is fully updates with service packs etc. internet explorer -> tools -> windows update

install run the scan and install all updates

if this doesnt work you may have to consider formatting and reinstalling windows...

Installing visual basic v5 on HP DC5700 (Win XP)


HP's software may be interfering with the installation process.  Make sure that all unnecessary software has been shut down, including AV, Antispyware, firewalls, etc. before you start the installation.  Checking the error log for specific info would help determine what is causing it.
