I have an HP PSC 1310 printer. It works fine at first after rebooting, then just won't print anymore. I have to reboot to get it to print again. The problem did not stop when I switched computers. Now I have an HP with XP. There must be a conflict of some kind, but it doesn't show a conflict. Help! Thanks!
Perform a clean and "No bloated" installation of the hardware. Uninstall ALL the HP printer software, disconnect the PSC and reboot the computer. When
windows finish to load, connect the PSC again, the new hardware wizard
will show up, follow the instructions with the HP Installation disk in
the drive. IMPORTANT: When a silver sand glass show up in the
screen, CANCEL the installation of the HP software (this is by clicking
"CANCEL" button or by no accepting the license terms). This will
install only the PSC Drivers and nothing else. Try printing again.

did you install the cd driver of your Hp psc 1410? if not insert the cd driver of your HP printer, after auto play goes click install driver, just follow the instruction on screen, then finish, remove the ink cartridge, check if ther a cover in the contact point of your cartridge, remove the seal,
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.
There are all kinds of printers and printing problems. It’s important to note at the outset that for safety reasons you should unplug your printer if you plan on working inside the device for any reason. In addition to the electrical hazard, printers (especially laser printers) can also be very hot on the inside, so use caution.
There are a few general troubleshooting steps you should take first, regardless of your printing problem. These will help solve most everyday printing issues.
Reboot. You’ll be amazed at how many printing problems simply disappear after you restart your computer. Also, reboot your printer. Sometimes, for no good reason, a printer will become wedged (it just stops communicating with the computer). Turning your printer off for a few seconds, and then back on, will usually get you going again.
Read the printer’s lights. Doing this can provide you with very useful clues. Is the power light on? Is the paper feed light blinking? Don’t be afraid to press buttons on the printer: Turn it off and on, reset the paper feed, and take the printer offline and bring it online again.
Check your physical connections. Is the power cord loose? Does the cable from the printer to the PC have a secure connection at both ends? Look at the connector pins on your cable. Are they bent? Try another cable if you have one. Check the print cartridges and printing mechanism. Is anything blocking the printer? Are the cartridges firmly in place?
Print a Windows test page. Access your printer’s Properties dialog box (follow the directions given above). Select the General tab and click the Print Test Page button. If nothing else, you can find out a good deal about your printer’s problem. If the test page prints, you have a problem with your application, not with Windows. Answer the questions as prompted and work through Windows’ Print Troubleshooter as needed.
Drivers. Verify drivers on the Details tab in the Printer Properties dialog box. Make sure the installed driver corresponds with your actual printer. Check the manufacturer’s Web site for updated drivers and browse the support pages on the site while you’re there.
Usually a line across your printing indicates a bad inkjet head. Luckily on HP printers the printer head is built into the inkjet cartridge. Have you replaced the cartridge? Does it do this on any color or a particular color?
My advise is to replace the cartridges and perform an alignment. If that doesnt fix it, it could be a bad board.
