- now the monitor should run
- if not, pls reinstall the software (*)

HP PSC, Officejet, and Photosmart All-in-Ones - The Error Message 'No HP Devices Detected' Occurs When Opening HP Solution Center (c00762521)
Issue When opening HP Solution Center, a message appears that states "No HP Devices Detected ".
Solution one: Check connections and status
Check to make sure that the device cables are connected securely at each end.
Make sure the device is turned on and not in an error state. If unsure, turn the unit off and then back on again.
Try to access the device through Solution Center again.
If the device is still not detected, proceed to Solution two.
Solution two: Check that there is a printer icon in the printer folder
Click Start and then Settings or Control Panel .
Click Printers or Printers and Faxes .
Make sure there is an icon for the printer you are trying to use.
If there is no icon and you are connecting via a USB cable, disconnect the cable, and restart the computer. Reinsert the HP software CD and choose Add a device . Connect the unit when prompted by the installer.
If there is no icon and it is a wireless connection, run the wireless setup wizard as outlined in the product setup guide, then reinsert the CD and choose Add a device .
If there is no icon and it is an Ethernet connection, reinsert the CD and choose Add a device .
Solution three: Check that the Digital Imaging Monitor is running
NOTE: If you chose a custom install and did not select HP Digital Imaging Device Functions, the Digital Imaging Monitor will not be installed. Proceed to Solution five.
Press the CTRL , ALT , and Delete keys at the same time to open the Task Manager.
Look to see if HPQTRA08 and HPQSTE08 are running.
If they are not running, restart the computer and then try again.
If they are still not showing in the list, proceed to Solution four.
Solution four: Check that the HPZPML driver is running
In Windows XP and 2000, click Start , Control Panel , Administrative Services , and then click the Services Icon . Scroll through the list looking for HPZPML to make sure it is set to automatic and that it is running.
In Windows 98/ME, open the Task Manager by pressing CTRL , ALT , and then Delete . The file HPZIPM should be listed.
If the HPZML or HPZIM file are not available, restart the computer. If they still do not show up, proceed to Solution five.
Solution five: Uninstall and reinstall the software
Insert the software CD into the CD-ROM drive of the computer. The software installer should automatically start.
If the software installer does not automatically start, complete the following steps:
Click Start and then Run .
On the Open line, type D:\SETUP , where D is the letter of the CD-ROM drive.
Click OK .
Click Uninstall on the installer screen. If Uninstall is not an option, the software installation was incomplete. Click Install .
Follow the onscreen instructions until the printer software is completely installed.
CauseThere are several reasons this can happen. The device was not connected during the installation of the software, there is no printer icon in the printer folder, the Digital Imaging Monitor is not running, or the HP service PML driver is not running.
