Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Replaced old laptop with new HP-dv8t running Win 7 pro. Downloaded and installed HP Photosmart 2600 software for 64 bits. HP Solution Center says printer is not connected but I can print, scan. Under Devices and Printers it shows up as "HP Photosmart 2600 series" rather than showing a separate 2600 printer and fax as it did under Vista SP2. There is an "ADD A DEVICE" icon from HP on the desktop, but it runs into the same printer disconnected issye. Any ideas?

I have an HP 8460p laptop that I purchased from my former employer. The operating system in Windows 7 pro 64 bit and the software will not recognize as genuine since the computer still thinks it is pa


Unless you know what you are dfoing, it will be more trouble than it is worth friend.
Your best bet is to purchase a new disc with Windows 7 64 bit and do a 'new install'. It will ask you to wipe the existing partitions and you can start anew using the full capacity of the Hard Drive.. Don't panic If you don't have a Product Key, you can download Win 7 installation discs all over the net; Win 7 WILL install and work fully, but will only give you 30 days to buy a Product key. before it locks you out.
Good Luck

Can't install printers.


Two reasons why this would come up. One the drivers are Win 7 compatible. The other is your user account does not have enough access rights.

Can,t get printer to work need to configure and get driver to work


Computer off, Photosmart C4580 OFF, and unplugged from power. Disconnect the USB cable from it to the computer.

Turn the computer on.
Remove all associated HP software for the Photosmart.

Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.
When the list populates remove all HP software for the Photosmart.
When finished close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.

Restart your computer.

HP Support > HP Photosmart C4580 > Main support page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3418707&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

Click on the heading - Software and Driver Downloads - in the list.
(Right side)

Select your Operating System. Click on the blue down arrow, to the right of the box with Select in it.

Click on the Operating System you are using.
(If you have Windows XP Home or Pro, click on Windows XP.
Unless you have Windows XP Pro that states it's 64-bit )

I'm going to use Win XP as an example, because the O/S you are using wasn't mentioned.

After you click on your O/S, go to the right, and click on Next in the blue rectangle.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3418707

Using Windows XP for an example I would click on the + sign,
to the left of, Driver - Product Installation Software (2)

The drop down list shows;

A) HP Photosmart Basic Drivers
56.03 MegaBytes in size. (56.03MB)

B) HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers
149.41MB in size.

I recommend downloading B)
Get the full package.

Click right on the blue heading -
HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers

Scrolling down to the heading - Details and Specifications, and further down to the sub-heading - Compatibility, we see this software is compatible with XP and Vista.

Shows it to be compatible with Windows Vista, and both versions 32-bit, and 64-bit.

Only shows it to be compatible with Windows XP in a 32-bit version.

If it is good for a Vista 64-bit O/S, I'm going to go out on a limb, and state it will work with Windows XP Pro 64-bit.

To download the file click on the blue file name -

PS_AIO_04_C4500_USW_Full_Win_enu_120_210_NB.exe

( [1/1, 149.41m]
This means Page 1 of 1, and the size is 149.41 MegaBytes )

After you click a small window will come up.
Opening - and the file name.

Click on - Save File.

After you click another small window will come up. This time on the left side.
In the heading of this window, tells you where the file will download to.

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.

[ Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads, for Vista and Win 7 ]

Write this down, and the file name. (File name; so you can find it later)

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

My Documents: Click on Start, then on My Documents.

[ Windows logo button, then Documents, for Vista and Win 7 ]

Downloads:
Click on Start, then My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

[ Windows logo button, then on Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads, for Vista and Win 7 ]


When you see the file name DOUBLE-click right on it.
Follow the easy instructions.
(Next, Next, and Finish)

When finished close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart your computer.

Plug the USB cable of the Photosmart back into the Advent laptop.
Turn the Photosmart on.

After a few seconds, (After all of your Start-Up menu items are loaded, really), a pop-up should come up out of your system tray;

"Found new hardware"

,and perhaps another one,
"Found HP Photosmart C4580"

Post additional questions, or to have me clarify anything I have stated, in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

[ Why remove the software, then reinstall?

1) I don't think going to Add or Remove Programs, and clicking on - Repair, for the HP Photosmart software, will do any good.

I think there are too many files corrupted, and the software needs to be reinstalled in full.

2) You may get a driver conflict, with having part of the old HP software still there, and then reinstalling new software.

(Probability is pretty low, but why take chances, or have to do it all over again? )

Printer HP Photosmart C5180 Series cannot be contacted over the network


Check with HP for a Windows 7 driver for the printer. HP Ink Jets require proper drivers to work correctly. Once you have downloaded and installed the drivers try connecting again.
If you have installed the drivers and Windows 7 still refuses to "talk" to the printer, you may have to adjust your advanced network settings as well. Open up the Network and Sharing center, click on advanced sharing settings and make sure file and printer sharing is turned on. Also check "File Sharing Connections" and enable file sharing for devices that use 40 or 56 bit encryption.
If that fails to work you may need to speak with HP support for further assistance.

I replaced my XP machine with a Windows 7 machine; it did not detect my HP 6500 all-in-one printer so I went to HP.com and downloaded SW & drivers. Now Doc Manager or scanning capabilities won't...


Well, it sounds like you went the proper route. My first suggestion is to UNINSTALL the old driver and software first before installing the new one.

Also, take care to note whether you have the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 7, because they take very different drivers and software. Also, you have to watch closely on the HP site that it specifically says "64 bit" on the drivers if you do happen to have 64 bit Win 7. It's a pain sometimes.

You're on the correct track, namely download from http://support.hp.com and then install the software.

Error message 2753 MSI.dot4wrp message when trying to install HP Photosmart c4480


I had the same problem. I tried to install my new HP Photosmart 8550 printer onto my HP desktop, I am running on Vista 64 bit. Kept getting fatal error MSI.dot4wrp40 over and over again. Upset that my Windows installer was corrupted. I search the internet for this error and realized that this only comes up with NEW HP Printers and scanners. I went to Epson's website and downloaded a driver for one of their photo printers and downloaded the driver for the Epson Stylus Photo1400 Vista 64 bit driver, and guess what it installed I went and bought this printer and I am up and running again. Sorry HP I am jumping ship. The week before I tired to install this HP printer, I installed Print Shop Pro Publisher 23, Blackberry desktop, and Canon digital utilities which in fact all use Window Installer. All installed with no problem, and they are all working. I believe this error message has to be a conflict between HP and Microsoft's 64 bit OS only.... Google THIS ERROR and you will notice only HP comes up.
