XP has all of the correct drivers in its database

Disconnect the printer

Go to Start, Printers & Faxes , Add Printer allow Window to try to install the machine , it will fail, so when the screen tells you go for the manual installation option

Select HP scroll down the list on the left hand side and you will get a selection of HP LJ4 installations hit the one that fits your machine and let it install.

You need to have the printer switched off and disconnected till the installation routine has finished, once that is done then switch the computer off and plug in the printer, power the printer up first then the computer .

That should work

Im looking for HP laserjet P1505 installer


Hi,

You can download the installation driver and software from manufacturer's support website by clicking this link

On the page which opens, select the operating system of your computer (Windows Xp/ Vista..) from the drop-down menu and click the "Next" button. Then download the required drivers and software.

The list of available drivers will load only after selecting the operating system of the computer.

Click on the "+" sign next to the list to expand the list and view details. To read the detailed installation instruction, click on "More info" link under each driver/software.

You can also order a replacement installation disk on the page which opens.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

Not so much a problem but got message printed out while trying to print a document. Unsupported Personality: UNKNOWN. Does this mean something I should be concerned with ??


An error page will print with the words "Unsupported Personality: PCL " in the upper left hand corner. The printers are host-based and do not support PCL printing; therefore, installing an alternate PCL5e or PCL6 printer driver will frequently generate this error condition. NOTE: This error condition occurs by design when an attempt to print with a PCL5e or PCL6 printer driver occurs and is NOT a bug within the product software. SOLUTION: Install the correct HP LaserJet Host-Based Printer Driver or the HP LaserJet printing system software for the product. These drivers are available for download from the HP web site. Click here to go to the HP web site drivers and downloads page. NOTE: There are several programs (such as accounting, invoicing, court documentation applications) that are 16 bit (DOS) programs with a 32 bit (Windows) overlay. Due to the nature of these applications and the associated Windows overlay, the errors may continue with the correct printer drivers. These applications do not typically support a host-based output device, and as such would not be supported in these environments.

I have a HP Laserjet 4P that had been used on my company laptop and home computer. When I upgraded top a new Dell Vostro 420 running Windows Vista Business and moved the printers over to this unit the...


You don't write how exactly is your printer connected - if I remember correctly, HP LJ 4P doesn't have a USB connector, and Vostro doesn't have the parallel port available.
So how did you connect it? Is it via some USB to parallel adaptor, or via JetDirect network card in the printer? There are multiple separate issues that may be applicable in either case...

With new computer, it does not print on the fi;rst


Disconnect HP 1020 from computer. Go to "printers" in the start menu ad delete all of the installed printer drivers. Reconnect HP 1020 and have Windows re-install a print driver for teh printer.

If problem continues, do the above steps again, but before re-connecting printer, down load a driver from the hp web site and install it. Then re-connect printer and try it again.

Windows vista does not seem to recognize HP 4P printer


WOW!? HP4P... I don't think you'll find a Vista Driver for that printer.

Try www.hp.com in the downloads section.

Good luck from a crusty old HP Printer Tech.
