How can I print to my HP Color LaserJet 3550 from my Windows 7 Home Premium OS Toshiba Satellite C655 Laptop. The printer works, but HP says there are no drivers to support it. How can this be? Please...


If Hp does not have a drivr to support it then you are out of luck unless you find someone that hacked drivers to work with it. If they have Windows Vista drivers, you can try those but they are not goign to guarantee to work.

not all equipment from Xp works with vista or 7. Xp is not the same OS or even same breed as Vista/7

Unable to scan after install windows vista home premium w sp 1


You don't have bi-directional communication between the all-in-one and the computer. (If you launch the scan command from the computer, Windows Photo Gallery, Paint or a third-party program). Solve this with a new USB cable. If you are using a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.

If you can't launch the scanner from the buttons on the all-in-one, that is due to the fact that you are using the driver in the Vista OS. HP does not offer a full-feature software for this printer for Vista.

In Paint, to acquire a scan: File > Import from Camera or Scanner, Choose Scanner then New scan.

I hope this helps.

HP laptop doesn't recognize HP Colorjet 2600n


you need to reinstall the printer drivers with the usb unplugged. then when you plug the usb into the pc it should see it and activate the printer (plug and play). having said this make sure you can use other equipment with that particular usb cable as the impedance could be bad with the cable. If you need more details post back and i will be glad to help you. Good luck!

HP psc 2110 all-in-one wont print from internet


I'm assuming you went to the HP site and downloaded the Vista drivers??? Other than that try this:

  1. From Control Panel > printers... uninstall all printers.
  2. Unplug USB cable to printer and re-boot.
  3. Install Software.
  4. Plug USB cable back in.
Hope that fixes Ya...
