Hi Joan,

First please uninstall all of your printers drivers and anything that related to that printer (so that we can start fresh like you just bought it.)

What I suggest you do is:

1st the download necessary vista driver download for your printer to your desktop .

2nd plug the printer in which will then in turn run the New Hardware Wizard.

(if the wizard doesn't run then right click My Computer> Manage > Device Manager > select and right click the printer (which should have a yellow question mark [?] > update drivers.

3rd Once the wizard opens then select any option (because you already have the drivers downloaded) hit Next > then use the second option which is Install From a Specific Location > navigate to your desktop then select the driver that you downloaded and everything should work.

i recommend that you download your drivers from here. just because the disk provided by hp are not well equipped sometimes.

let me know how it goes.

Please if you have the time rate me on my solution. If i fixed it then please rate me on it! ^_^

HP 6940 won't print black-new cartridge installed-prints color but no black

In all likelihood your print head has become clogged at the black ink outlet. Be aware that printheads can BURN OUT if you keep trying to print and there's insufficient ink reaching the printhead. The ink flow is relied upon to prevent overheating of the tiny resistors at the printhead. Best bet is to remove the cartridges from the printhead and then remove the printhead and try to clean it in warm water. You will find many youtube videos on suggestions for cleaning the printheads on HP printers. Do a google search for your model. If all else fails you can order replacement printheads for the part that has failed. They are not cheap so price compare. Oftentimes they will cost nearly as much as a new printer!

I would like to install windows7 on my laptop Acer travel mate 4150 (Travel Mate 4151NLCi) .I already upgraded ram to 2 GB.I afraid about the drivers so help me.

Windows 7 should install on the Travelmate without any problems. However, you are correct to assume that some of the drivers will either not be available or out of date. You can find the ACER drivers on the Acer support page.

Cannot install 6940 driver

this is straight from hp
64 MB RAM for basic software installation (256 MB RAM for full software installation), 200 MB available hard disk space for basic software installation (450 MB for full software installation)
unless you get another 256mb memory it would be best for you to do basic installation.

My series 3400 all in one is not communicating with computer. I installed and re-install driver quite a few times with same result, check mark is beside icon in control panel, I unpluged pwr cord and usb...

Did you have the printer unplugged from the USB when you were installing it? If its plugged in this can cause this sort of problem. What operating system are you using? How long have you owned the printer exactly? Once I have more information I can assist you further. When you have a moment please accept and rate my solution accordingly.
