My hp laptop 6735s displays hard disk error

Replacing a disk is pretty simple. Look at the bottom of the case, there will be an area that has screws you can remove to access the disk. Carefully remove it, disconnect any cables and take it to a computer store and get another one. Reinstall
You now have a computer with nothing installed. If the old disk is readable, you might be able to get the information "cloned" onto the new disk before you install it. This will require some skill and a couple of tools. It is best left to a local computer person.

Hope this information will help.

Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using Fixya...

I am trying to print from my Lexmark X73. I have reinstalled the software, but it's not installing the printer portion. It is only installing the scanner. Why is it doing that, and can I fix it?

run this clean uninstall utility

download the drivers from lexmark

plug in your printer and install the drivers.

if this does not work then extract the driver file you downloaded "CJXP73LE.exe", go to start ->settings->printer and faxes....install a new printer (make sure local printer and auto-detect are checked)...follow it through and your printer should install. if at any time it asks for drivers or you want to manually point to the drivers then browse to the location where you extracted the "CJXP73LE.exe" file. you can download a program like "winrar" (type it in google) to extract it.

Dead printer?

I assume the transformer has 2 wires coming out of it. My guess is that the wire from the transformer is working however the wire leading from the Transformer to the printer is not.

You may need to purchase another power unit.
But on the bright side, a transformer is cheaper than a new printer.

Hope this helps.

My colour cartrige code 348 will not fit into my photosmart 2575 printer the package says suitable for this machine

I would look at the cartridges and see if they look similar and if they don't try another one. Or go to local place like staples and see if they could help you. Do you have a pix of the cartridge that you could send me?
