    my printer is connected; however when I got out a paper jam, it stopped printing. I'm not sure how to properly install it now. I need someone to give me the steps to get it working. I went out and got the connection needed to use with my vista streamline too..I had it connected to a windows xp and went to Staples for the cord I needed so it would work on my vista.

    I have been trying to get someone to help me for 2 days now.

Make sure that your printer is shared in the network. you can uninstall the previous cd driver from the add/remove programs then reinstall again.. make sure to reboot your computer after fresh install is done

My HP 5550 Deskjet won't print mirror image

You'll need to go to the manufacturer's site and find Vista drivers for your HP. Going from Win 98 to Vista is a major jump. I had to convert from XP to Vista and I still had to go get Vista drivers.

Also, make sure you get 32 or 64 bit drivers for the system.

this printer is (as per HP specs) only connected via USB or Wlan Print server.
Check connection using USB cable and be sure Printer driver are correctly working.
Check on Router your Print server IP address (Lock it out of DHCP)
Put both PRT and PC on same home network (normally HOME or MSWORK)
Put Printer server IP address into your printer properties/port tab/ IP.
OR check if you see your printer server in your Windows network/home network
