Question about HP OfficeJet t45 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Hp officejet T45 problem

I recently upgraded from dell dimension 4100 to a used dell 4550 and transferred my officejet. I supposedly found the latest upgrades from hp and installed them and the latest driver. When I first start up the dell, the all-in-one works fine. After any printing from the pc to the printer, it disconnects. This is so frustrating. The only way I can get communications is to restart the computer. It always gives me an error when initializing the hp printer, but the communications still works. I thought it might be a bad cable, so replaced it. The problem is the same. Can this have something to do with the newer computer maybe having been on a network and has to be initialized each time a print has been done?

I found that the T45 will print color from the HP 950 Driver, which is easy to select in most Windows versions. You may have software conflict so it might work for you...
