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...

When was the last time you changed the black ink on the printer? If it's been a while then I would suggest you change it. If you recently have changed it then you can try pulling the cartridge out of the printer and giving it a small shake. Put the cartridge back in and run an alignment operation on the printer. You can do that through the printer utilities installed on your computer.

I have just connected a HP Deskjet 3940 to my new acer computer and it is not printing. I went in print then options and clicked on a few things but still not working. Have new cartidges in 22 and 21

un install the printer driver,reboot ,windows should detect new hardware ,and then insert the cd that came with the printer select have disc and re-install the software.
if your acer has vista you may need to get a vista driver for it,or worse the printer is not compatible with vista.

good luck

My printer was installed. now my computer says it not. the problem is that my install disk got destroyed. what do i do to reinstall it?


You need to download the appropriate drivers from the Lexmark website and install it in to your PC. Once their homepage has opened up, pls move your mouse over to the "Drivers & Downloads", click on "Driver Finder", Enter your printer model in the "Search for your Printer by Model Number" and click on "GO". Click on your Operating System. After successful download, click the file to install. Pls follow on screen instructions.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Printer driver not working

Hi there, i dont know if this is of any relevence however, i have just spent the whole afternoon trying to install my new printer, every time i installed my disk a little icon popped up saying usb didnt recognise the device, despite endless frustration i did it another way, If your printer is a usb connection then before inserting the disk connect the printer to the computer and switch on, this then brings up the wizzard which should help you install, if this doesnt me it took me ages, try different usb ports, i finally found one that picked up the printer, after it detected the device i was then able to continue with instalation via the disk and wohoo many hours later i have a printer, unfortunatley i have now run out of paper doh!!! i hope this helps someone :-)

try uninstalling any software relating to the printer.
shutdown the computer. Remove any printer to computer cables. Re-boot ( startup ) the computer.
let it set itself up. then shutdown.
turn off the power to computer, put your printer cable back in, as if you were installing it for the first time.
the computer should have found new hardware ( your printer ) And ask for a driver. ensure your HP disk is in the drive, and ask to search Drive D:- Or E:- wherever your CD is located.
If it,s already got the latest drivers installed, i would,nt worry unless your printers not functioning correctly.

HP Deskjet 840c - Printing Emails

I did see you reinstalled your software) but please continue
It is important that you have that icon by the clock. Power off the printer by pressing the power button on the printer.
Please un-install your printer software through Add/Remove Programs within the control panel. Please restart the Pc after un-install is complete. Create a folder on your hard drive and name it, "HP DeskJet 840C". Go to this link listed below & download the printer driver software listed. When you save to disk you can choose where you want to save. Pick the folder you created. Save inside this folder. The HP driver (Will most likely be updated software). I promise, you will have a icon down by your clock when finished.
Follow the instruction in your manual for setup & installation.
If you using Outlook Express & you want to print or send through your printer the page should be set as 8.5x11". Orientation should be set to Portrait, unless you set this for A4.
Lastly, please turn off your anti-virus software during install & re-install. Just in case you come back to this thread!
please vote...
