Hello, you will need to complete the add new hardware wizard, sometimes the drivers are corrupted and the wizard ends before all installation takes place (undertaker02 this is also for you) Do this:-Log on to your computer by using an administrator account.
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
4. Locate and click the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\LPTENUM
5. Right-click the registry key, and then click Delete.
6. Under Confirm Key Delete, click Yes.
7. Close Registry Editor, and then restart your computer.
When Windows XP restarts, it will detect the printer and install support for it. After the printer is installed, it will no longer be detected each time you start Windows XP.

NEW HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One on Vista - Error Printing


Whats the error message and can you try the printer directly connected into your computer?

Also check what your computer says in the printer status -> start -> printers and faxes -> your printer.

USB not recognized during printing and scanning


Some motherboard or operating systems have problems if you leave usb devices plugged in. They don't recognize that the device is still there and ignore it. These are referred to as "Legacy USB devices". There are a couple of things to try.

Make sure the problem isn't the printer if you can. If you have another computer just plug it in long enough to for the operating system to recognize something has been plugged in.

On this computer giving you the problem. unplug the usb cable and insert into a different USB port. Usually this is enough to "fix" it and make it usable.

Next is to unplug the usb and reboot the computer a few times. Then insert into a different usb port.

Past this point if it still isn't working then you need to go to control panel-system-hardware manager-usb devices and delete all entries under the usb header. Then reboot. This forces the operating system to find all the usb ports and reinstalls the drivers. Then plug in the usb and it should work again.

Hp pavillion usb ports


They are right, some DVs have this problem. If you can live without the ports, then do it. If you can't, replacement is the only option.

Driver problem on Vista w/HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One


I have a similar problem on Vista Home Premium (SP1) with the all-in-one HP psc2355. Driver once in a while (why - I don't know!) has to reinstall itself after reboot. Tried clean installs, driver updates you name it.To no avail. I have multiple instances of the driver installed now. Only the latest entry actually works. Can't find any resolution for it anywhere. Only happens with the HP USB driver.

My HP 1200 all in one printer


First does ink come out of your cartridges? Take a damp towel (water) and firmly press the bottom of the cartridge on the paper towel. Black should be a rectangle, and color should provide you with all three colors.

If no, you probly need new cartridges. I get mine from http://www.oinkinkstore.com.

If yes, then try to copy something. If the copier works then the problem is probly with the printer driver. Uninstall it and reinstall it.

Since you can scan you can eliminate the usb ports and the cord.

It is probly just an error with the driver and a simple fix is just uninstall it and reinstall it. Make sure the driver is for Vista.

USB port problems with hp printer


There are few things to remember using USB.
  • If your System is in hybernation mode, don't remove any attached USB device, because it will damage your USB driver. This is one of the known problem from microsoft.
  • If you have to remove any USB device use 'Safely Remove Hardware'.

To remove currepted USB drivers its not enough to remove your printer drivers.
  1. You should un-install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' from Device Manager.
  2. Then re-boot to clean registry.
  3. Install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' using XP Setup CD.
  4. Then check the Mass storage, PDA etc, it should recognized by XP.
  5. Then install printer driver (don't attach printer to system untill setup finish or setup says to connect).

I think it will fix.
Please let me know your feed-back.

Thanks
Iqbal
