Question about HP DeskJet 5550 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

This is my second time with the HP 5550 printer just disappearing from my computer. My husband reinstalled it using the CD and in Settings Printer/Faxes, it says it is there. We have rebooted, tested plugs, turned it off then on, etc, but there is no action from the computer. Is it costing me $20 to ask my question?

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Trying to set up my hp deskjet 5550 printer to my computer without a cd.


Hello,

this is not possible. without the CD, you cannot setup the printer.

The good news is that you can download and install the driver/software of your printer without the CD from the below link. Once the link opens, select your operating system (Win xp/vista/7) and proceed from the download.

Hp Deskjet 5550 printer


Looks like I found the problem: The 5550's driver software (version 7.1) is apparently not compatible with XP SP2's "Data Execution Prevention" feature. Go to My Computer, right click & select Properties. Choose the Advanced panel. Click the first Settings button, in the Performance Section. Choose the Data Execution Prevention panel. Choose the first radio button, "Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only", not the second one "Turn on DEP for all ...." The first radio button (essential programs only) was what was selected when I got the machine, but I myself had upped the setting to the more restrictive level. Longstride
