Question about HP Photosmart 3210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Photosmart Essential Lockup

Installed Hewlett Packard Photosmart 3210 printer software driver on new Dell desk top computer with Vista Home Premium 32 Bit. All functions work except Photosmart Essential. Three percent into cataloging of photos, the function locks up. It stops at the same picture everytime. I previously installed this on an old computer with Windows 98 and it worked fine. I have had lengthy conversations with HP technical people and have reinstalled the driver for the 3210 as well as (at their suggestion) the Photosmart 7150. Nothing has helped. Also tried installing on a new Dell notebook with Vista Home Premium and got same results as above.

HP Photosmart 8250 noncompatible with Windows Vista program

first download the software/drivers for the printer from the link below.

second sign in as administrator or your account may have those privledges already. during the install if there is a spot make sure that the printer is available to all users.

any other issues or it's still not working please leave a comment here ... i'll sort it out or someone more knowledgable then myself will.

One thing you may know off hand but might not have been asked. Is that a 64 bit operating system by chance... also designated as x64.
