    On many HP all-in-one machines, the software has to be loaded before the printer is plugged into the USB port. The software will indicate when to plug the printer in OR what I do is go to HP, download the bare printer driver and use Windows scanner wizard for scans.

If the printer is not being detected correctly check both ends of the USB cable to ensure they are firmly attached. Do not have the cable connected to a USB hub or other device. If possible, try using an alternate USB cable that has been tested with another device and is known to work correctly. Ensure the USB cable is connected to a port on the BACK of the computer if possible as some ports on the front of the computer do not neccessarily supply the amount of power that is needed for printers.

Check the Device Manager listing to ensure the printer is showing up. To do this power the printer on and right click the My Computer icon on your computer then left click Properties. Select the Hardware tab and click the Device Manager button. Are there any listings displayed with a question mark or exclamation mark? Is USB Printing Support listed under the Universal Serial Bus Controllers section? You may need to click the plus sign beside this listing to expand the category tree.

If the printer is listed with an exclamation mark or question mark, right click the printer and click Remove, then select Action from the top of the window and select Scan For Hardware Changes. This should 'find' the printer again and the drivers should be reloaded successfully.

If the printer is listed correctly, try selecting the printer properties (browse to the printer window, right click the printer and select Printing Preferences) and clickc the Ports tab. Ensure the port that is selected is USBPRN01.

I hope this helps!
