My hp 3845 printer won't work in windows 7

Check Windows Update for the driver. Try doing a check for updates as well. (The installation can be set to automatic for new hardware - see for details.) If the printer still doesn't work, try a new data cable and a different port. If you have a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection.

Since this driver doesn't include the HP full software, you will need to print a test page from the printer itself to test for problems. See your manual for more information.

I hope this helps.

Need installation directions. do not have disk


Go to HP DeskJet 3845 Support

For Drivers, click on Software & Driver Downloads. You will then have to select an Operating system2_bing.gif. When you do, a list of available drivers will appear.

Click on the file to download. I suggest that you select Save when the download window comes up. Then direct it to save the file to your Desktop.

After the download is complete prepare the printer: paper, ink, etc. Power it on but DO NOT connect the USB cable.

Run (double-click) the file you downloaded to begin the installation. Connect the USB cable when prompted.

Thanks for using Fixya.
