Question about HP Officejet Pro L7680 All-In-One Printer
It can not be found when the printer dialog box opens and it is nolonger in the Printer/Fax folder on the control panel.
The Microsoft image writer is now shown as the default printer. After install, it works fine for a few hours and it disappears again.
The problem started 2 days ago, after 3 months of normal operation.
That sounds a lot like the driver software is unsuccessful in installing or you have something like anti-virus or anti-spyware that is stopping the installation from completing all it's stages successfully.
Try downloading the latest version of the software then disconnecting from the internet before temporarily disabling your anti-virus and anti-spyware software and THEN installing the driver again.
As a general rule it's better to have the printer unplugged from the computer while you do this and then plug in when prompted...
The computer will want to reboot and finish the install so do this when prompted and make a note of any errors you receive if you get any.
Hope this helps.
