If you have reformatted your drive and re-installed XP you will have to re-activate XP before you can do anything useful. Have you done this?

How do I install this on my laptop it won't recognise the disk


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The Easier way is to Download the drivers directly to that machine and install them there, or if the machine got no Internet access then to download it on some other machine and transfer the drivers to the target machine through a Pen drive.
I'm providing you the Download links below for the Available Operating Systems that are; Windows 200, XP and MAC OSX all versions.

If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.
Concerned, Nooh
P.S: Driver for XP, Driver for Windows 2000, Driver for MAC

HP colour laserjet 1600 not recognised by USB port


I believe the problem is related to microsoft .NET Framework. I have researched and there are many posts of incompatibility between .NET Framework and many printers not just 1600. My 1600 stopped working and I traced the problem to upgrade to .NET Framework 3.5 I uninstalled 1600, then uninstalled .NET Framework 3.5 (and 3.0 as well for good measure), reinstalled 1600 and it is working fine now again. You can uninstall .NET versions using Add/Remove programs on the Control Panel. To avoid re-updating, I also turned off Windows automatic updates. I left .NET Framework 2.0. No problems with other programs but the computer did have trouble rebooting the very first time after I uninstalled .NET Framework 3.5 and 3.0. Unknown if that was related to the uninstall or a completely unrelated problem. Anyway if you want to try something less drastic than removing .NET versions, check out this Microsoft link:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/961118
refers to a printer fix related to .NET. In my experience, the Microsoft fixes never work but you are welcome to try before uninstalling .NET Framework versions.

How to reformat a hard drive without worrying


Installing XP is almost automatic. After you select the drive which is always C: drive, the only time it will stop is when it ask you for your XP license. It will continue to see the cd without no issues.
Your license shpuld be on the back or side of your PC Or on the folder that the XP cd came in.

Here is a site which goes through the XP install step by step, you may not need to do the first section , since you already can boot from the cd :

Cannot retrieve application list


My updates to the printer automatically downloading to a C:// drive for my hard drive which was labled H:// after the format. I had to reformat the computer partitions after backing up my hard drive to disk and relabeling the Hard drive back to C:// once the updates were installed to the correct drive the scanner downloaded the needed updates and began working. if anyone needs to know how to reset your partitions in the hard drive, all you do is after inserting your boot/install windows disk at the time of asking were to install windows a setup window will appear on the screan. at that time you may install another version of windows or delete the partition by pushing F2 to format, or in any case at the bottom will lable correct button to push to format the desired partitions. REMEMBER ONCE DOING THIS ALL YOUR INFORMATION ON THE COMPUTER WILL BE DELETED! So I strongly urge you do back up all information. THIS INCLUDES ALL OF YOUR DRIVERS! if you do not back up your drivers you will loose essential data to run your computer again including your network controller adapter<-- this is needed to get online it is basically your ethernet/ internet port which you may want especially to download the new drivers to other programs Video drivers etc. The Whole process is a couple of hours to complete but if you can take the risk in trying this you'll save yourself time and money getting ripped off to have someone else do it. Where by the way charges are incured with system diagnostic runs to make sure places of computer programming and system tech supports are covered if anything is to go wrong with the computer. then youll laugh when you see the bill after not having a computer for a week!

Epsom stylus cx6600


Pete, You shouldn't have to reformat your hard drive to get a printer working. when you insert or remove the mini cards you must stop the device in windows. Windows views the card and the printer as a hard drive. To remove the card click the green arrow icon in the lower righthand corner of the desktop. Go to the Epson site and download the latest drivers for you model and if available download and update the firmware for the printer. Tim
