I'm in the process of reformatting and installing XP. Got that going, and now am trying to reinstall my HP 7150 printer. I have the install disk, and I also tried to download the driver -- but nothing seems to be recognizing the printer...any ideas?

    Thanks for the response. Yes, I did try rebooting, but no luck. I've since discovered that it appears that my USB ports aren't working since installing XP SP2. I went to the Microsoft site to download a fix, but get "error on page" when trying to accept the agreement. <<http://support.microsoft.com/default.asp...>>

Have you rebooted your computer with the printer attached?
Check under printers to see if the HP 7150 is online and the default printer.

    Resolving USB controller installation issues


    • In Device Manager, USB game controllers are listed under Human Interface devices (in Devices by type view). If the controller does not appear in Device Manager, then USB may not be enabled in BIOS or EFI. When you are prompted as you start your computer, enter BIOS or EFI setup, and enable USB.
    • If USB is enabled in BIOS or EFI but the USB host controller does not appear in Device Manager (under Universal Serial Bus controllers), or a yellow warning icon appears next to the host controller name, then the version of BIOS or EFI may be outdated. Contact the maker or vendor for your computer and obtain the current version of BIOS or EFI.
    • If the controller appears in Device Manager, right-click the controller name and then click Properties. Problems and suggested actions are displayed under Device status. For more information, click Related Topics.
    • USB ports have a separate entry in Device Manager. To check the device status, click Universal Serial Bus controllers, right-click USB Root Hub, and then click Properties. If you do not see USB Root Hub, you might not have a USB port installed on your computer.
    • You can also use the Hardware troubleshooter to diagnose and solve problems with hardware devices such as USB game controllers. Start the Hardware troubleshooter.

I cannot find a toolbox for the hp 7150 printer anywhere on my computer! help! I need to clean print heads and do an alignment page.


That software can be installed from the CD-ROM that came with the printer.

Or, from the manufacturer's web-site:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=72881

download the device-drivers for your printer and your operating system, and install the software.

Can't re-load hp photosmart 7150 on windows xp. Gets to the point where the installshield should come up, lingers awhile, and then says check printer power and usb connection. The computer has already...


1.It could be the USB cable. Try a new cable.
2. Could be USB port, use another if available
3. You should be able to install the software without the printer connected.
4. Uninstall all hp printer software, and restart computer.
5. Delete any instances of the printer from the printer/fax located in control panel
