HP C4280 Printer New Hardware found on system even when SW loaded

I have reloaded the SW for this printer several times, but my system keeps telling me it found new hardware & to load the CD.

Also, when I send something to the printer, it brings up Yahoo's Musicmatch Jukebox, this doesn't happen all the time, but it is a nuisance and slows down my system.

Any suggestions?

I always use HP printers and every time i get a new operating system (vista, win7 etc) the HP software does not fully install. I go to HP.com to install the latest software for the appropriate OS but rarely get more than just the printer working. If i require the scanner or cd print features i have to do that from an older computer or older operating system that the printer was originally installed on.

Windows keeps re-installing HP Photosmart C4280


I have a customer with Windows XP and the same issue. Told him to unplug the printer cable when starting the computer and/or restarting it. Wait until all auto-start programs have loaded, including and specifically the HP Monitoring Utility program. Once Windows is up and he's at the desktop, THEN plug the printer cable into the computer. He's been doing that for several days now with no duplicate printers installed.

Driver problem on Vista w/HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One


I have a similar problem on Vista Home Premium (SP1) with the all-in-one HP psc2355. Driver once in a while (why - I don't know!) has to reinstall itself after reboot. Tried clean installs, driver updates you name it.To no avail. I have multiple instances of the driver installed now. Only the latest entry actually works. Can't find any resolution for it anywhere. Only happens with the HP USB driver.

Can't install HP Photosmart c4280


You have to know first if your printer is Vista compatible.
If yes, you need the vista drivers in order to get your printer connected with vista.

When the system prompt for the driver, click BROWSE and Select the location
Open the folder when the downloaded driver is and click OK
This must be fixing your problem

XP says printer is seen as new hardware and won't go away


When you do a restore on those, yes, you load XP, then you have to run the drivers disk.
The trick is, after you restore windows, you have to install the chipset driver first.
Reboot
Then do sound, NIC (NIC has to be done manually), and video (don't worry about the USB drivers, they get taken care of in the windows updates)
Reboot
After all of that is in, do your windows updates (of course reboot again)
Then do windows update manually (START>Update Windows, Custom) and make sure to include hardware updates.
Once all of that is in, then attach the printer (don't turn it on) install the printer software, and turn the printer on when it tells you to.

Not doing the restore in this order will result in the errors you are getting.

The chipset drivers first is the key to the whole project.
(I've probably done 100+ of these).

I don't know if you can go back in now to do these steps, you might be better off, starting all over.

Try that, and let us know.
