    I tried my solution and still get to same spot. How long does it take for the final step to download? Right now it says it the connecting device is counting down and the overall installation is at 94%.

    now, why would you mark this as inappropriate? that suggests or implies that none of my information is useful. This is a standard approach to resolving this sort of issue..

    Perhaps you'll reconsider your decision.

I have installed printer driver for Epson plq-22 but is not printing.what can I do

if you are using parallel port cable you must enable parallel port in bios. if you are using USB cable then for proper installation you must always install software FIRST then START software install, and only plug in printer when SOFTWARE tells you to as that is when it LOOKS for printer. make sure you only use the same usb port if you ever disconnect and re-connect it. you may need to go to PRINTERS and UNINSTALL any UNKNOWN device before re-installing. if you have a printer installed that you no longer use, UNINSTALL it as this can prevent a new printer working.If you insert printer first before software you may have trouble. If you also have 3rd party USB products such as Backup drive, then THAT SOFTWARE may interfere with install process and you may need to uninstall that software to make installing printer work.

I can't install my 4200 printer/fax. i get to the part where it says plug in usb cable, and it doesn't go beyond that. the cable is plugged in

Just for fun, try this: abort the installation process. Then plug in the printer in any USB port. Does the computer see the device? It should and then ask for a driver. If the system doesn't see the printer, then make sure the USB port is all right. Plug in some other USB device, such as a mouse, into the port. Does the computer see it? If not, then the trouble is in the PC. If it does, then your printer or the USB cable is bad. You can also take the printer to another computer and plug it in to make sure that it's all right.

First of all not very computer savy. having trouble with my printer. (hp deskjet f 380)i'm having trouble installing. a screen pops up that says wizard deleted by user?

USB printers (Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP only)
  1. Make sure that the USB cable is unplugged from your computer and your printer. USB devices work differently from older devices and usually need to have the drivers installed before you connect the device.

  2. If you have an installation disk, insert it into the drive. If there is an installer provided, it should run or be executed here. Follow its instructions, and it should take care of installing your printer in a few moments.

  3. If you don't have an installation program, plug the USB cable into your computer and your printer. This should trigger the Add New Hardware Wizard.

  4. Click Next, and then select Search for the best driver for your device. Click Next.

  5. Uncheck all options except Specify a Location. Click Browse. Browse to the disk, CD, or directory where your printer drivers are located. Click OK, and then click Next twice. Note: You can download some drivers from the web. Consult the web site of your printer's manufacturer, or see Where can I find driver updates for my Windows computer?
  6. When all the files are copied, click Finish.

  7. Turn on your printer. Windows should detect the printer's presence and finish the installation. If the option to print a test page is offered, do so. This will confirm the installation. Click Finish.
