I purchased a new computer having WINDOWS 7 as operating system. I am having printer HP Officejet 4355 All-in-One and CD drive supplied for this is not compatible to WINDOWS 7 OS. What to do?


I think this printer don't have the cd software available for Windows 7, 32 or 64 bits. But you can use it with the plug & play feature of Windows. Just turn the printer on and plug the USB cable (try cables of less than 6ft and a port in the back of the PC, also avoid the use of any USB HUB). Windows will automatically recognize the printer and install an embedded driver. You will see in the control panel under printer and devices if the unit was successfully added

My father bought me a new printer. The printer is a HP Deskjet D1460 and my laptop cannot recognize the printer. My OS is vizta


  1. Verify your USB ports are working properly by plugging any other devise. Eg. Pen Drive.
  2. You have to 1st install the software and then plug the printer, If you plug the printer before install software it wont detect sometime.
  3. Then If you are using a lengthy cable to connect printer, Try with a shorter cable. Some HP printers does not support long cables

Desktop does not recognize printer software or hardware


did you install the dirver first and plug in the usb cable when asked? If you don't run the install first it will not identify the printer.
Also plug a memory stick into the same usb port to verify it is working correctly.

Yes that is possible. Did you plugged the usb cable during driver installation ? During driver installation the usb cable must not be plugged. after the installation step asks you plug it in, then you plugged it. If not, the system wont recognized your printer. Be sure to uninstalled the previous installation before you re-install the driver

Computer won't recognize USB ports


If you are plugging a USB device into a different port it takes some time to recognize and install it - it re-installs for every port. There could be cable and/or port issues as well. Plug the printer into a USB port that the mouse does work on and allow several minutes for it to detect install it.

Hp laser 1018 not being detected by the computer


First check that the driver of this printer is installed on pc or not.
If driver is not installed, the computer will not detect this printer.
and
If driver is installed and then printer is not detected by the computer then turn your pc and printer turn off, unplug U.S.B cable, plug other U.S.B cable and turn on pc and printer both, Check now.
If problem now also as it is then check your printer with other pc because this is aslo possible that pc U.S.B port is faulty.

My hp psc 1100 series 1200 series will not be reinstalled onto my machine. It was already installed but for some reason it uninstalled itself. When I went to put it back in it is not recognised printer...


First make sure the power supply (if it has one) is plugged in and receiving power.

Try a different USB cable - maybe the cable is bad, it happens.
If not, try plugging into a different USB port on the same machine. If it still isn't recognized, try plugging it into a different machine.

If it isn't recognized on a different machine, then there's probably something wrong with the printer itself and it's time to contact HP support.
