    Unfortunately, HP does not support this printer in XP. The only thing you can do is to follow the installation instructions using the drivers included in the XP Operating System. Here is a link:http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/Tec... Thanks for using Fixya.

This driver is built in to Windows XP and you simply need to select it when adding the printer. Here is bit more info:

How can I print to my HP Color LaserJet 3550 from my Windows 7 Home Premium OS Toshiba Satellite C655 Laptop. The printer works, but HP says there are no drivers to support it. How can this be? Please...


If Hp does not have a drivr to support it then you are out of luck unless you find someone that hacked drivers to work with it. If they have Windows Vista drivers, you can try those but they are not goign to guarantee to work.

not all equipment from Xp works with vista or 7. Xp is not the same OS or even same breed as Vista/7

It sounds like you downloaded the PCL Universal Driver. Try the full solution driver or the PostScript Universal Driver. Both allow color prints.

Color printed pages are too light.


  • Troubleshooting Setup and Install If your device is not recognized:
    • Verify that your cable is USB 2.0 high-speed compliant.
    • Ensure that your cable is connected correctly. Remove the USB cable, look at the end of the cable, and then match it to the pattern on the USB port. Make sure that it is not upside down. Insert one end of the USB cable completely into the USB port on the HP device and the other end into the back of the computer.
    • Check that the peripheral is turned on. Peripherals will not be recognized if the power is off.
    • Ensure that your USB cable is no more than 15 feet or 5 meters in length.
    • Check that the USB port is enabled. Some computers ship with disabled USB ports.

When printing .pdf's to HP 8500N ..I get a stackdump sse more inf


I find most PDF printing issues are due to the print Driver. Your print driver should be a Post Script driver they offer the best support for PDF files.

The issue your having is most likely due to the print driver. First step would be to replace your driver.

Print the document again.

If it does the same thing, then it could be caused by the actual PDF file your printing.

Print other PDF documents does it do this with all PDF's?

If so your Acrobat Software has an issue. Reinstall Acrobat.

Print PDF's again.

If the problem remains then it becomes a issue most likely caused by your Operating Sys of your computer.
