Proper wiring my hp pavilion p6 2330pc and my hp printer


http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=5296967&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en

1) DO NOT connect printer to computer!

2) Put the Installation Disk for the printer, in the optical drive of your computer. (Comes with the printer)
If you do not have this disk, post back in a Comment.

You will download the software from HP Support.
I need the printer model name, and model number.
Also what Windows operating system you are using.

(It cannot be assumed what Operating System you are using.
May not be the one that came with the computer)

If you have the Installation Disk, load ALL software.
(One example; HP Photosmart Full Feature Software & Drivers)


[Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

The device is the Printer. The O/S wasn't stated.

The Full Feature software covers all the software the printer needs.
If it is a unit that can Scan, Copy, Print, and Fax, for example;
all of that software will be loaded ]

ONCE the software is loaded, restart your computer if not asked.
After Windows has loaded again, let the computer run for a few minutes.

Now restart the computer.
(WinXP example; Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart)

Plug the USB cable from the printer into the computer.
Turn the printer on.

After a few seconds you should get a pop-up in the taskbar,
"Found new hardware device"
And perhaps another one,
"Found HP XXXXX device "

(X's stands for model name/number of printer)

IF,.......you have connected the printer FIRST, then attempted to install software -> This = NO.

You can get a driver conflict.
Post back in a Comment if this is what you have done.

[When a device (Printer in this case), is connected, Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will pick from it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.

Now you you install THE drivers needed, and there is a driver conflict;

Windows: "Which ones do I use? These or THESE?" ]

Post the printer model name, and model number. This can be found on the Back of the printer.

(This is the type of USB cable end, that usually plugs into a printer,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_connector#Cable_plugs_.28USB_1.x.2F2.0.29

Type B. It is also a Male plug. So it's a USB B Male.

Square shape with two corners cut off.

The USB A Male connector is the one that plugs into the computer.
(Type A)

Rectangle shape )

Tip

Windows system always restart


Computer often restarts, can not enter windows.<br /> Firstly check your ram.<br /> If you can, do a test with the new ram it's better.<br /> if not, make sure your use ram is fully functional.<br /><br />Turn on your computer, if the problem is still the same.<br />Do a test on your power supply. make sure the power supply to do the test is 100% work or use the new.<br /><br />Turn on your computer again, if the problem still occurs. unplug all cables connected to hard disks, cd / dvd rom, floppy and remove all the pci cards. now leave the connection to the power supply to the motherboard and the other connecting wayer suiz on / off (all the connections on the panel) if you are using a display card, left the display card in the slot and then turn on your computer.<br /><br />Now look at the results. if still the same. This means you need to do tests on your processor and motherboard. but if your computer does not restart again stable, this means, most likely the problem comes from the hard disk.<br /><br />Ok. now try to connect to your hard disk. problem occurs frequently restart <br />again right?<br /><br />If so, you need to perform tests on your hard disk. <br />how to perform the test, if you have important data in the hard disk. I suggest you first Copy your data to another computer first. by connecting the hard disk into the computer that you want to use to make copies (if the type of hard disk pata / ideas, set the jumper to slave and connect to any idea that the cable has not been used in the computer you use, if no the cable idea, you can use a cable that is used for cd / dvd ram for a while) if your SATA hard disk, no need to set jumpers, just connect the sata cable and then just copy the data may be at work to do.<br /> <br />After completion of all copied data. The cover page, then klik2x on my computer icon. observe the hard disk drive for. (For example, now for the hard disk drive is e. Right-click on the drive and click format. If the page to format mungul. Tick box format for quick and clear the volume level and then click Start.<br /> <br />after the format, remove the hard disk and set the jumper to the original and put it on your computer. then for the window installation process you will be done as usual.<br />** (If your problem still occurs. My suggestion is that you must use a new hard disk or a 100% hard work and re-do the installation window, because the hard disk is damaged or has a bad sector will cause your system files are always auto restart due -file to boot normally have been damaged or lost due to bad sectors.) **<br /> <br />good luck ... <br />Contact me for further problems<br /><br />Regards<br />multilinkent<br />Thank fixya<br /><br /><br />

I have a w3622 and put in a new hard drive and tried to use the OS disk that came with the computer. what I get is PXE-E61: media test failure. check cable. Disk boot failure.insert system disk.


Hello,

Sorry to hear about the trouble you are having. Try the following tips and lets see if we can get it up and running.

-Set the boot order in BIOS to boot from the disk drive first. In order to get to the BIOS, you will need to select BIOS option or Settings when the machine is booting up.

Most often, the above error is caused due to incorrect BIOS settings or a faulty hardware, such as hard disk. Sometimes, the error may also occur if the computer tries to boot from a device, on which it cannot find the required boot files. An improperly connected hard disk is also known to cause the same type of issue.


You should follow the below steps sequentially in order to isolate the cause and solve the issue:
  • Verify all the cable connections of the hard disk. An improper or loose connection is likely to be the reason, in case the hard disk has been recently installed or moved.
  • Check if no other storage device is connected to the computer. If it is, remove it.
  • Enter the BIOS setup when trying to start the computer and see if hard disk has been correctly setup and detected in BIOS. If the hard disk cannot be detected due to any reason, you should consider the next suggestion as it might be physical failure.

Can not load the printer drivers on Compaq Presario SR1403WM Desktop PC message says it can recognize device the device is plugged in I am trying to load Lexmark 8300 printer I have disk but it stops...


Hi,

Don't think you need to worry about a internal computer problem at the moment. Chances are that it is a dodgy disk.

First thing to do is to download the driver file fron the manufacturer's website. The fact that it detected your printer suggests that it is not likey to be a connection issue.

If you download the driver and it still does not detect the device, disconnect the printer, restart the PC, then run the installation program that you downloaded and then connect the printer when prompted.

If this does not work, suggest you try a different usb port in your computer and try again.

Finally it could be a software problem so you could recover the pc back to its factory settings with your recovery discs. Only when that does not work should you think about it being a printer or pc hardware problem.

Note that you could try connecting the printer to a different pc to test whether it is the pc or printer at fault.

Hope that helps - pls rate the solution

Yea sorry, forgot that tid-bit of info. It,s the W3118 eMachine / Gateway FIC K8MC51G


This issue can be caused by any of the below reasons.

-Corrupt boot files on the computer.
-Settings for hard disk drive are not correct.
-Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue.
-Boot devices not set properly.
-BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly.
-Connections loose or disconnected.
-Bad Hard disk drive or other bad hardware.

Solution:


Corrupt boot files on the computer

If the computer has no bootable files on the drive it is attempting to boot from it is possible that the computer may halt at " verifying dmi pool data..."

To resolve this issue:

Boot from a bootable floppy diskette. Ensure that this diskette was made on the same Microsoft Windows operating system that is installed on your computer.

Once at the A:\> prompt type "sys c:" and press enter. This should report the message "File system transferred." Once transferred remove the diskette and reboot the computer.

If the computer continues to not boot attempt to re-create the master boot record by booting from the bootable floppy diskette again. Once at the A:\> prompt type "fdisk /mbr" and press enter. This should return you to the prompt without giving you any message. Once at the prompt remove the diskette and reboot the computer.

Note: The above information only applies to Microsoft Windows users. If you are running a Linux / Unix variant or other operating system such as OS/2 and the computer is freezing at this DMI message ensure that Linux / Unix has been properly installed first and/or your boot manger is not corrupt.

Settings for hard disk drive are not correct

The computer freezing at "Verifying dmi pool data..." may be caused when the hard disk drive settings within CMOS are not set properly. Enter CMOS and verify that the hard disk drive settings are set properly and/or that it is set to Auto Detect.

Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue

Verify no floppy diskette or CD is in the computer. In some cases the computer may be trying to boot from either of these drives causing issues with the boot sequence.

Boot devices not set properly

The computer stopping at " verifying dmi pool data..." can be caused when the boot devices on your computer are not set properly in CMOS. First, verify that no CD or diskette is in your computer. If a CD or diskette is in the computer attempt to remove this first to determine if it was attempting to boot from it.

If No CD or diskette is in the computer and your computer still halts at the DMI message enter CMOS setup and verify that the boot options are set properly. We commonly recommend that the floppy be set the first boot device, hard drive as the second boot device and the CD-ROM as the third boot device.

BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly

If none of the above recommendations have resolved your issue attempt to reset the BIOS / CMOS settings to the factory or default settings.

Connections loose or disconnected

If the computer has been recently moved or new hardware has been installed in the computer it is possible that a connection may be loose or even disconnected. Verify that the hard disk drive, floppy and CD-ROM cables are properly connected.

Bad hard disk drive or other bad hardware

If you computer continues to freeze at the DMI message after attempting all of the above recommendations it is possible that the computer may be freezing because of a bad hard disk drive or other bad hardware in the computer.

Before replacing any hardware we first recommend you attempt to erase everything on the hard drive and start over.

If you're unable to get to the point of re-installing the operating system it's likely your computer has a hardware issue and it's suggested that the hard drive be replaced. If that doesn't resolve the issue then have the motherboard replaced.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.

I am trying to install a Hp L780 printer but i am not getting no results


When installing an HP printer, it is very important to NOT plug in the printer until the installation specifically tells you to. Uninstall the printer, reboot and start again. Make sure the printer is off and not connected to the computer. Insert installation disk, and follow the prompts. Only connect the printer when the installation tells you to. Good Luck
