When downloading a printer driver from HP you will need to ensure that you are selecting the correct OS (eg. Windows 7) and the appropriate version (eg. 64 or 32 bit operating system). These drivers are different and using one on the other will not work.
Windows XP drivers also will not work properly in a Windows 7 environment and the majority of Windows XP drivers are 32-Bit.

USB Printer does not recognize with XP Computer


In most cases, the driver for a printer is supplied when you purchase it. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to provide the driver along with the device to make sure the working.

However, most of the Operating Systems come with native driver support for many known printers. This is the fact we have to take care while purchasing a printer. Even though we misplaced the driver disc, if we purchase a good manufacturer printer, there is a chance to get the native support from Operating System itself.


There are some scenarios where printer may not be recognized by the Operating System due to some conflict with other devices.


Please follow the troubleshooting steps and check the operation:
  • Ensure that the supplied USB cable is firmly connected to both the printer and computer side.

Do I need the software to install Dymo LabelWriter 400 Thermal Printer to my computer?


Hi, most printers do need a software/driver in order to be recognized by your computer. If in case you don't have the driver yet, you may download it from this site:
http://www.labelvalue.com/dymo-software.php

Select the software/driver compatible to your computer's operating system (ex. windows 7, windows xp, Vista, etc.) Please save it first to your computer before running it.
I hope this helps.

Can't install old printer on newer computer


The appropriate printer drivers are bundled with XP. With the printer connected to the computer and powered on, the system should automatically recognize the printer and install the correct drivers if it is connected via USB. If it is connected to the parallel port, go to Control Panel -> Printers, select Add New Printer and follow the on-screen prompts.

G85 not being recognized by computer


Do you have the Software/Install CD that came with it? Does the CD cover Windows XP? The original G85 software was only for Windows 98. Later, they finally developed the software to cover Windows XP.
