My HP 6110 is connected via USB cable to a Dell XPS M1210 Laptop. Operating System is Windows XP Media Edition. When I attempt to print, the printer sounds as though it's going to print, but then nothing but blank pages come out. I have this problem with every program I've tried - MS Word, Notebook, etc. The printer can successfully print a self test, so I know there's nothing wrong with the printer itself and the print cartridges are both new. I've gone through the limited amount of help offered in the troubleshooting section of the printers/faxes tab of control panel. I've shut printer and computer both off several times. Still nothing works. Please help.

Re: Blank Pages Printing
Does the printer show up under "Printers and Faxes" on your PC? Click on Start / Printers and Faxes ...to see if it's there? If you see other printers in the "Printers and Faxes" window...is your 6110 listed as the Default printer...that is...is the icon for your printer marked with a small checkmark?? Is there more than one instance of your printer in the "Printers and Faxes" window? If so, you should delete all but one and make sure the remaining one is marked as the default printer.

Go to the Dell WEB site and request or download a recovery CD for your model notebook. You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site,the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on thislink to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen
No the hidden partions rely on the main partion to have some files still intact to complete a repair of the operating sytem then restores the files back to thair factory settings, to put xp back on you will need the factory recovery cd or dvd. If you buy a copy of xp and install it then ust eht recovery it should restore it to factory with drivers as well.
BIOS passwords are removed by removing the CMOS battery temporarily from the motherboard. Windows passwords are reset with this CD: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/change-your-forgotten-windows-password-with-the-linux-system-rescue-cd/
I'm thinking you might be having a hard drive problem or the file structure is really messed up. You had Win 7 and tried to install Win XP. Now it is confused, no doubt. Here's the first thing I would do: Put in your Win XP disk and boot from it. At the first question it asks (about repair or install) choose repair. It will then ask you which Windows Installation--choose #1 if it's there. Hit enter if it asks for your password. Now at the command prompt, type chkdsk /? Depending on your version of XP, it will show you the switches you can use. Use the one that checks the entire drive. Might be chkdsk /P or maybe /F Anyway, use the one that does the whole drive and let it run. Then try your reinstall unless you have file problems that aren't fixed. BTW--your Dell should have a utilities option if you hit F12 at startup that will allow you to check your hard drive.
The L7580 is not meant to be set up as a scanning device on a network. This unit can only function properly as a USB connected device to have all the features work. Also, for the software to install with out problems, all other All in One software fro previous HP printers need to be removed. Once we did that and did clean install using USB only then did it work.
