connect the printer to the pc (internet connection is compulsary), then the pc (plug and play (pnp))is automatically guide you. otherwise download printer s/w driver from hp site and install the driver.
Do you have a mouse connected by cable or a USB dongle? If so, then your computer's Plug and Plug (PnP) capability to detect, install and activate peripheral device drivers will have recognize the mouse and made it accessible to you. If the mouse in not usable, look in Start, Computer, System Properties, Device Manager, Mice (etc.). If you have a Yellow Triangle, click on the mouse then the Driver Tab to Update the driver. This should solve you problem. You may have to Restart to gain access. If that doesn't work. Unplug the mouse connection, Restart the computer, then plug the mouse connection in again. Watch to see if PnP detects the connection and installs it.
If you are running Win XP or Vista, you may wanna try the steps below:
1. Start > Control Panel 2. Printers and Faxes (for Win XP) - Printers (for Vista) 3. Click the "Add a printer" of the upper left hand corner of your screen. 4. Select Local Printer. 5. Connect your printer to the USB port and turn it ON. 6. Try to detect a Plug-n-Play (PnP) printer 7. If the printer is not detected as a PnP printer, run through the unstallation wizard and select the HP F300 series or F380 > Next 8. Run through the wizard until you finish the installation.
The steps above are the steps for installing the printer driver using the generic printer drivers that are already installed in every Windows computer .
If the generic driver will not work, you may download the driver through this link:
I would check the bios settings to make sure the motherboard settings relating to PnP are correct. Try playing around with those bios settings and see what works for you. Also try different usb ports, i have the same problems sometimes with certain ports on my desktop computer, try all of them at the front or the back of the computer. I would check the Compaq Presario website for drivers not AMD, installing new ones is a good idea just to make sure its not a driver issue.
