Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies
Printer Type-HP Deskjet D1420 I had my printer installed used it and blah blah blah.
Well i had to do a complete sytem restore(back to factory settings)
But now i want to reinstall my printer so i went to http://www.siliconguide.com/drivers/device/477/
cause i lost my install disk.(Picked vista one cause i have vista)
Well, during my reinstalling it said i needed to connect my printer. Well i put the power/usb cords in and put them in their places.
Well it got near the end of the connection process and it said it failed. So i skiped that step and now i cant figure out how to retry the connection step please help.
First thing I would do is uninstall any software you have already tried to install. Then in the Control Panel, remove the printer.
Then...Go to HP supprt for your printer:
HP D1420 Support
Select Software & Driver Downloads.
Select your Operating System. (Vista)
You will then get a list of available driver/software to download. (Note that there is also a link to order a new CD if you so desire.)
Select the Basic or Full feature. (I would go Full Feature.)
Then the download page will appear. Click on the file name to download it. Select Save when you get the download window. Save it to your Desktop for ease of installation afterward. Do not Run.
Once downloaded, remove one end of the USB cable from the printer. Turn the printer ON.
Double-click the file on the desktop that you downloaded. Do not connect the USB cable until prompted by the software.
Save the Support page above to your Favorites for future use.
