I just loaded my 820 Cse printer to my new laptop. The OS is Windows XP. So the printer driver is already included with the OS. However, I can't find out how to tell when the ink is low. I had this option on my old computer with OS window 98SE. Can anyone help? firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks

Re: HP DeskJet 820Cse
That's because the driver doesn't tell you the ink is low. The software does. The software doesn't come with the os just the driver. Do you have a cd for Win XP? I'll get you the link to download the software just in case.

The 820 is a really old piece of kit and i am very surprised that windows 7 has found a driver for it. I I suspect that it has used a generic driver as hp never produced a W7 driver let alone a 64 bit one. I dont think you will ever get it to work.
Srri but have been working on printers for over 20 years so take my advice and dont try and cure the incureable!!
"The driver solution for this product is included in your Windows XP operating system and is already on your computer. There is no need to download anything. Follow the steps below to quickly and easily get your product working with Windows XP."
But the info on how to get it to work if having issues if also found on that page.
I have fixed this problem by cleaning the three large paper feed rollers. You can get at them by removing the paper tray.
HP told me many years ago that, over time, additives used in the rubber material that makes up the rollers moves to the surface and makes the roller slippery so that it does not drag the paper forward.
I clean mine by rubbing the surface with a rag soaked in methylated spirits (a type of denatured alcohol). A fiddle of a task but it works.
I have the same Printer and it works great in Windows XP Pro, so maybe you need to check their website for updated printer drivers...? My Printer is the HP Deskjet 1120C Professional Series Printer, that's the full name so I guess its the same printer...can print up to 13x19 inches....I've used the heck out of mine and it just now developed a problem where it won't pull the paper in from the front, but believe it or not I can load one sheet at a time from the back....
