Can,t get printer to work need to configure and get driver to work


Computer off, Photosmart C4580 OFF, and unplugged from power. Disconnect the USB cable from it to the computer.

Turn the computer on.
Remove all associated HP software for the Photosmart.

Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.
When the list populates remove all HP software for the Photosmart.
When finished close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.

Restart your computer.

HP Support > HP Photosmart C4580 > Main support page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3418707&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

Click on the heading - Software and Driver Downloads - in the list.
(Right side)

Select your Operating System. Click on the blue down arrow, to the right of the box with Select in it.

Click on the Operating System you are using.
(If you have Windows XP Home or Pro, click on Windows XP.
Unless you have Windows XP Pro that states it's 64-bit )

I'm going to use Win XP as an example, because the O/S you are using wasn't mentioned.

After you click on your O/S, go to the right, and click on Next in the blue rectangle.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3418707

Using Windows XP for an example I would click on the + sign,
to the left of, Driver - Product Installation Software (2)

The drop down list shows;

A) HP Photosmart Basic Drivers
56.03 MegaBytes in size. (56.03MB)

B) HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers
149.41MB in size.

I recommend downloading B)
Get the full package.

Click right on the blue heading -
HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers

Scrolling down to the heading - Details and Specifications, and further down to the sub-heading - Compatibility, we see this software is compatible with XP and Vista.

Shows it to be compatible with Windows Vista, and both versions 32-bit, and 64-bit.

Only shows it to be compatible with Windows XP in a 32-bit version.

If it is good for a Vista 64-bit O/S, I'm going to go out on a limb, and state it will work with Windows XP Pro 64-bit.

To download the file click on the blue file name -

PS_AIO_04_C4500_USW_Full_Win_enu_120_210_NB.exe

( [1/1, 149.41m]
This means Page 1 of 1, and the size is 149.41 MegaBytes )

After you click a small window will come up.
Opening - and the file name.

Click on - Save File.

After you click another small window will come up. This time on the left side.
In the heading of this window, tells you where the file will download to.

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.

[ Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads, for Vista and Win 7 ]

Write this down, and the file name. (File name; so you can find it later)

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

My Documents: Click on Start, then on My Documents.

[ Windows logo button, then Documents, for Vista and Win 7 ]

Downloads:
Click on Start, then My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

[ Windows logo button, then on Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads, for Vista and Win 7 ]


When you see the file name DOUBLE-click right on it.
Follow the easy instructions.
(Next, Next, and Finish)

When finished close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart your computer.

Plug the USB cable of the Photosmart back into the Advent laptop.
Turn the Photosmart on.

After a few seconds, (After all of your Start-Up menu items are loaded, really), a pop-up should come up out of your system tray;

"Found new hardware"

,and perhaps another one,
"Found HP Photosmart C4580"

Post additional questions, or to have me clarify anything I have stated, in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

[ Why remove the software, then reinstall?

1) I don't think going to Add or Remove Programs, and clicking on - Repair, for the HP Photosmart software, will do any good.

I think there are too many files corrupted, and the software needs to be reinstalled in full.

2) You may get a driver conflict, with having part of the old HP software still there, and then reinstalling new software.

(Probability is pretty low, but why take chances, or have to do it all over again? )

If the OEM is not making a driver then your probably out of luck. You may have to go back down to Win XP or sell or return the item. Not all manufactures have caught up with Win 7 drivers so you need to make sure there is a driver for the equipment you purchase.

Driver required for hp printer 3108


Hi Masifrizvi,

This is hopefully a simple issue to resolve.

Go online:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4062&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=447811#N654

Select your operating system and download the driver, often times the cds packaged with the printers only come packaged with a few Operating Systems.
Once downloaded you should be able to install the driver.

HP photosmart copy function does not print with windows 7. I can print and scan with no problem.


it is the version of software that was released to be compatible with win 7. the copy feature was removed. you can try running the original install disk in a compatibility mode
right click on the setup.exe
left click on properties
click on the compatibility tab
check the box for compatibility mode, and choose Vista Service Pack 2
check the "run as administrator" box
right click the setup.exe and use "run as administrator" (yes, this may seem redundant)

Photosmart 3310 is on network but not recognized wirelessly


Sounds like another Vista Bug, i would check the HP site for this issue and if its under warranty, contact HP. If you have alot of Blue tooth devices hooked up, it may be that its trying to use another device in its place or the signals are getting crossed, im not positive.

Its like when you have to many network drives all hooked up and you plug in a USB device, Windows pops up those anoying bubles saying its detected, but in My computer it doesnt show.

So bassically you have to right click my computer, manage, disk management listed uder storage, right click on the device or drive and change the drive letter to something like " W" or " Z" or anything not in use.

It may be a siomilar case with your bluetooth, youo may have to much stuff connected. Try redoing everything like you have so many other times before, and then limiting how many bluetooth devices you have connected at the same time. see if theres a difference.

Hope this helps.
