Question about HP OfficeJet k60 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I run Windows Vista Home Premium os and have an hp officejet K60 printer attached. Mysteriously quit printing this week; each attempt to print elicits a print error in the print queue. I tried uninstalling the hp printer driver software but when I tried to reinstall it says the software is already installed. I tried dis- and re-connecting the printer to prod Windows to reinstall with no joy. Now the printer does not show up in the list of printers (control panel). The hp web site I visited says that with Vista and the usb connected configuration I have the os is supposed to automatically recognize and install the print driver - but it isn't doing that even when I restart the computer. Any tricks to try?

Inabilityy to print from QUicken 2008 under Vista 64-bit OS


I can only speak for my situation, which is Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit with a HP7590 all in one printer. I had all the problems I read about, note I was only interested in printing "reports" from QUICKEN 2008 DELUXE.

I was able to use the Quicken PDF printer, but I just installed the HP 990C printer drive and found that report printing now works. I did delete the PDF printer before I installed the 990C, but I would guess that's not necessary.

HP considers the 990C a "generic" printer.

Hope this helps.

I have a HP OfficeJet K60 printer. I have a Linksys WRT54G V8 broadband router. I would like to set up printer so that I can print from my laptop without connecting the print cable to the laptop.


Do you have the jetdirect print server attached to the printer? If so, follow the instructions for the print server setup before connecting to the broadband router
