Delete the printer from the list of available printers on your computer. But first make sure you have the software needed to reinstall it, either on the original CD or as a download from the manufacturer's site. Then turn the printer off or disconnect it, go into Control Panel, Printers/Faxes in Windows, highlight the printer that's not working and press the Delete key on your keyboard or right click and choose Delete. When you reconnect the printer, Windows should detect it automatically and ask you for that CD or the location where you unzipped/expanded the file you downloaded from the manufacturer.
First thing to do is put the printer CD in the carriage and try to print again. Before you press the print button cancel the CD if the printer CD starts to auto run. This is in case your computer is looking for files it cannot find. Sometimes you get lucky when you try to print and the computer finds and grabs the files you need off of the CD. May not work but always worth a try...
Not sure if you have re-installed lately. If not, you may want to see if your printer CD will do a "repair" on your printer.
Check your printer software find the option to "check for updates". Your drivers may need an update. You may need to go to the HP site for this.
Search the HP site - First find your printer on the site. Then you will find downloads and help for your particular printer.
If your printer has a "Toolbox option" (i.e. troubleshooting) try that. If there is no Toolbox with your software the help option will run you through a troubleshooter.
You may want to uninstall and re-install. If you have spy ware or a virus scanner sometimes these apps. will
grab files they think are suspect when it is actually files you need
for your computer or say printer. So if you have any apps. like that
go to company site or get in touch with them. Ask them how to ensure
their software is not interfering with printer drivers etc... or other
apps. that may just stop working for no reason.
Please go to the link below then download yoru driver on your computer. Once you have it on the computer just doubleclick the file to run it. That should install the printer. If in case you still have a problem please dont hesitate to reply back.
Go to HP.com, click on Drivers Download, enter Deskjet F830 in the model box and click search. You will then be asked to pick your Operating System, most likely Windows XP or Vista. You will then be shown all the available downloads for that printer. Download and install the driver and the printer should work.
Here is the link to the drivers and software:
You didn't specify which OS you have so after you connect to this site select you Operating System (OS) and then download the driver/s listed. They only listed X7500 and X7550. If this is not correct you simply need to search the site for a X75.
I suggest you save the drivers in a folder you will create first then open the file.
1.) make a folder named Lexmark X7500 on your desktop.
2.) Then download the file to it.
3.) Then open the folder and open the file.
4.) Follow the instructions it creates.
You may need to buy the cd from Lexmark but as long as you have the drivers and any software they provide you should be OK.
