After pluggint it in and turning it on, try installing it automatically (without the disk).
If that odes not work, try again with this driver (for xp) installed:

Printer will not operate on Windows 7 computer.Computer was upgraded from Vista to 7. Vista was completely removed before installing 7. Tried downloading new drivers, didnot work.


Possibly HP rare not supporting this printer in the new OS, although most Vista drivers are compatible with Windows 7, so have you tried installing the original drivers that came with the printer?

Also, Windows 7 has a driver "compatibility mode". Here is use of the mode explained on the Microsoft tech forum:

Bought new computer with windows vista, my printer [deskjet f380] is not compatable with vista,any thing i can do,or will i need a new one.


Hi! Windows sometimes offer a compatability issue report and should direct you to the site where Vista related drivers can be installed, if not try Hp's website support/downloads for Vista compatability issues. I'm sure if the printer isn't too old then your luck may be in and you'll get the required driver/s.
I hope this helps!

Here is a link to HP Support to download the Vista software and driver.

Uninstall any current software you have installed and reboot before downloading and installing the new software.

Old hp printer won't print anything with new hp desktop computer


Your PC has VISTA loaded (according to the HP web specs)

This printer has no specific driver for VISTA but basic functionality is supported by VISTA without the need to load a seperate driver.

refer HERE

The printer connects via a USB cable to the PC and should be detected automatically by VISTA whe the printer is turned on.

The original CD would have drivers for an earlier vesrion of windows (98 or XP) so you should uninstall any programs that were installed offthe disk.

My Printer Is Driving Me Crazy


Hi, this sound like a driver problem. But then again, it might also be printer cable if you are using the parallel port. I will assume the you are using WinXP and the printer is using parallel or LPT1. Try first to reinstall the driver. The first step would be to download the latest driver for your printer at http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=58123&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us. Drivers are OS specific so you have to choose what is appropriate. Switch off/disconnect your printer from your PC. After downloading, remove/delete your old 612c printer (+ drivers). To do this, start, printers & faxes, delete 612c icon. Windows may or may not ask you to also remove related software such as drivers. If asked, answer yes (this is to make sure to your fresh). Reboot (though not necessary but make sure printer is still off/disconnected). Install newly downloaded driver. If it is in a zip file, uncompress in a temporary folder. If it is an executablwe, doublie click. Run the full install, when asked to search for a printer, decline, it will auto install in lpt1. Soon as finished, it may or may not ask you to reboot. Connect and power on your printer. Windows may auto detect new hardware, click cancel. Go to your printer settings and print a test page. Hope this works for you. Good luck.
