I accidentally deleted my hp director icon from my computer i dont know how to restore my hp director


If you have just deleted the icon from desktop and not uninstalled then we can put a shortcut back on desktop

Click on START button
click on MY Computer
Open MY Computer icon from Desktop

Open Local Disk C:\
Open Program Files
Open HP Folder
Open Bin Folder
You will find a file by name HPDIREC
Right click on the file name and Click create shortcut on desktop ( this icon will not look exactly like the HP Director icon you deleted )

Close the window and you will find the HP Direct icon on desktop

If not, you can uninstall the software from Add/remove programs under control panel and install the latest software for your printer. Click on the download button below to open HP website to download the software by selecting your operating system

*Note : HP Director is not longer designed by HP. IT is replaced with a new Software called HP Solution Center

Hp1350 wont scan press scan button on/resume light blinks buzzing for a few seconds and nothing else.

Did you try print any document just to make sure that printer is connected properly to the computer. If it is printing than try to scan from computer , i mean there must be a icon in your computer "Hp Director", open that and click on scan document. if that doesnt work, than click on start, got to run and than type "stimon.exe" than hit enter from keyboard. Nothing will happen , just screen will flash for a second, than try to scan. if it doesnt work than you have to unistall and reinstall the software

Officejet 7210 -downloaded software but do not have any icons, et


If you’ve recently upgraded to the new Internet Explorer 7 (IE7), and you have a Hewlett Packard scanner or printer/scanner, then you will almost certainly be experiencing problems with starting it.
This affects almost every model of HP Printer (e.g. PSC 2510, PSC 2410, Officejet series) that uses the HP Director software. Hewlett Packard is working on a solution, which is due to an incompatibility with Javascript on the new IE7.
However, we have a workaround for you here! Just follow these very simple steps to get around the problem:
  • After double-clicking on the HP Director icon, nothing appears to happen... the program is starting normally, but it’s hiding.
  • Wait a few seconds, then hold down the ALT key and press the space bar. A small dialogue box will appear.
  • Click on Minimize (you may have to click twice)
  • Voila! the HP Director task will appear in the task bar at the bottom of the screen - click it, and the program will appear and work normally.
Don't install/uninstall IE7 and then use Firefox or some other web compliant browser instead.

HP 1315 - no director

The Software of HP Director comes up with the Installation CD of the printer and not available from the Online download.

Your printer will work with any application with the driver installed from online download.

Let me know if you are getting problem in running any application (viz Scanning, fax, copying etc.)

HP PSC 1315

If the patch or the updates did not work on the link I sent you try this Workaround: Open HP Director each time you use it If the update to HP Director is not available, or if you have installed the update and the HP Director window still fails to open, try this workaround.
  1. From desktop, double-click the HP Director icon to load the program into the memory. HP Director will not open at this step. Do not click anything else on the screen until Step 2 is completed.
  2. Press the Alt key and the Space bar together, and then select Minimize from the menu that appears at the upper left corner of the window. If necessary, click it again until HP Director minimizes. HP Director software displays as an item on the task bar (the row of open software programs that appears at the bottom of the desktop screen).
  3. Click HP Director on the task bar. The software opens and displays normally.
  4. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 every time you use HP Director.
    NOTE: The HP Director window might appear larger than normal, but the software is functional.
Cause In October 2006, Microsoft released Internet Explorer 7. The HP Director software that shipped with some HP products introduced between 2002 and 2004 may not be compatible with Internet Explorer 7. The HP Solution Center software, which replaced HP Director software on products introduced after 2004, is compatible with Internet Explorer 7 and does not exhibit this issue.
