    I don't like the limitations Vista has put on the features of my Officejet v40. Is there anyway to get the toolbox back?

    The software Cd does not install in Vista - I would like to have the toolbox so I can fax and receive faxes from my machine to my computer. My V40 mechanically is just fine, so don't really want to throw it out and spend $$$ on a newer printer.

    Any Ideas?

I just bought and installed a new HP Pavillion computer. I had a HP Deskjet D1341 connected to my old computer that was working fine, After installing the new Pavillion and conecting the printer to the USB...

disconnect all the cabled from the printer and leaving behind only the power cable.
Then try turning on the Printer. If it still doesn't turn ON then it means that its a hardware fault. Please consult HP for it. But if in case it does turn ON (the chances of which is very less) then it could be a software issue with the computer. Let me know what happened.

Purchased 4480 Deskjet on or about 1/18/10 to go with HP 6250 Pavillion. Printer software would not install?? Please advise

1. Check the disk on another computer and see if you get response from the disk.
a. if you do then this may be your cd rom or DVD read/writer is not working properly.
b. If not, then the cd make be a corrupted copy.
2. Call the manufacturer and ask for a new copy since you have just purchased the printer. They should be happy to send you a new copy of the installing software.
3. Take the unit and all it's compnents back to the place of purchase and inform them of the issue and request a new printer with a new copy of the installing cd and get assurance from the store manager that if it doesn't work can you bring the unit back and get a refund.

You would need to purchase a wireless adaptor to add to your daughter's pc. Once installed alone with the drivers/software, you should have no problem getting her connected wireless.

Good Luck

I can't get my new computer to communicate with my old printer

Try removing the printer driver that you have installed and download the driver from this URL.

When installing the printer make sure you don't plug it into your laptop until the installation software asks for it.

This should work.

Tvalue 4 for windows will not print with a new printer

This is a work around as I have the same problem. If I change the default printer to something other then the HP printer, then select Page Setup, I can then select the HP without the program erroring out. You can even set the HP back to default and TValue will continue to work fine until you restart the computer.

HP psc 2110 all-in-one wont print from internet

I'm assuming you went to the HP site and downloaded the Vista drivers??? Other than that try this:

  1. From Control Panel > printers... uninstall all printers.
  2. Unplug USB cable to printer and re-boot.
  3. Install Software.
  4. Plug USB cable back in.
Hope that fixes Ya...
