Hi,

Sounds like either curropt version of the software. When it's installing at step 7 does it try to initialise the printer at all?

I would suggested downloding the correct version of software www.hp.com ; un-install any previous installs from Control panel and also any Directories it may have created on your harddrive.

Try installing the fresh copy of the drivers.

I hope this helps,

Thanks.

There can be two reasonns for this.either the driver is not campatible with vista or 2nd thing is some files of your operating system are corrupt or missing which stops installation from getting completed.if reinstalling printer drivers is not helping then first reinstall operating system then install the printer drivers on fresh operating system. it will definately get installed  thanks.

What does it say when it stops.  Or does it just hang?

When I try to print from either of two computers with the HP 4215 driver and/or copy the printing is extremely slow - takes about 20 minutes to print or copy one page


You need to do two separate things: 1. You must erase the driver that you currently have for that printer and disconnect/restart the printer physically. To erase the driver in Windows 7 do the following: Start Menu -> Devices and Printers -> Right Click HP OfficeJet 4215 -> Remove Device (if this doesn't work you can also try fiddling with the properties too in the same context menu).
2. Then you need to download and install the new driver from here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=351106&lang=en& (Contains Drivers for all Operating Systems)

Can't install driver


Hi and Hello
XP Driver HP-OfficeJet-4215

Not sure what you need by saying can’t install driver I think you need to gave more info, but I will try to think way, ok if you got a new printer and you have the Cd driver for it,,, if you trying to install driver on to your pc windows Xp the Cd must be xp driver if the windows you got is Vista or windows 7 then it a different drivers so it will not work, other thing is your CD ok?
And trying to get Vista or Windows7 Driver is a job to get hold of them. Xp driver mostly can get easily enough.

Ok next what I will do I will put a Driver install on my website for you can download it from the link here just click on this link and it will download for you make sure to save it on to your desk-top so you can find it ones you have downloaded the driver just double click on it and it will run the driver for you and follow the instructions.

Scan using the HP OfficeJet 4215 Printer


The problem is with Windows Vista...it does not recognize the scan button when you touch it on the scanner. There are two ways around this:
Go to Programs / Windows Fax & Scan / Click new scan / click file and then click scan
OR
Go to Accessories / Paint / Cick File /click from scanner or camera / click scan

HP software will not install


this error tell us that you are not logged in with full admin rights on your computer to install software and driver package, and it also sounds like you are trying to start software install using the "run command"

There is nothing wrong with printer but you do seem to be having trouble loading the required software and driver package on your p.c.

Are you also using new Vista software/driver package for your HP OJ 4215 cause the one that came with it maybe XP.

Go to HP and download correct package, AND log on as administrator with FULL priveledges, your username (normal login) may not, from the looks of this.
