Okay, we need to uninstall the printer. Go to Devices and printers~right click on the HP printer and left click on Remove device. Then reboot. The correct drivers should get installed automatically. If not use the installation CD that came with the printer or better still (if the printer is old) go to the HP web site and download the Win 7 drivers/software for the F4400.

HOW DO I RESTART MY ACER LAPTOP


  • 1

    Connect the host computer (the computer that will be connected via wire to the printer) to the printer using the provided USB cable. Insert the printer software CD into the disc drive and click the "Install" button when it appears on-screen. Click "Continue" at the bottom of the next window.

  • 2

    Click "Yes" when asked whether the host computer will be sharing the printer. Give both the host computer and the printer a network name that will be used to connect to the other computers when prompted to do so. Continue to follow the on-screen instructions until the installation process is complete.

  • 3

    Go to a different computer on the network and insert the printer software CD into the disc drive. Click the "Install" button when it appears on screen. Select the "Network" option on the screen marked "Connect Your Printer."

  • 4

    Enter in network names of both the host computer and the printer into the dialog boxes in the next window. Continue to follow the on-screen instructions that will prompt you to begin the installation process. The installation process should take less than five minutes to complete. Click "Finish" once the software downloaded from the CD is complete. The printer will now be available to both computers on the network. Repeat these steps to enable another computer to work through the same network.

    Norton 360 install has replaced/overridden DVD drive


    Hi, I can certainly understand how you feel and hope I can help.

    error 19 isnt necesarily a corrupt driver, it can be 2 drivers trying to use the same resource (as in norton's backup drive and your cd drive, for example)

    Try this - Click the start button, right click on "Computer", select "Properties", then click "Device Manager" in the upper left hand corner.

    Open the bit that says "CD/DVD Drives" and try right clicking on the drives there and selecting "Update Driver Software". This will probably do nothing. Don't worry, I didnt really expect it to. Now right click on the drives, and select "Delete" and then reboot. This will reset the drivers for ya.

    This fix usually DOES work. Most of the time. If it doesnt work, try the ones below.

    Replacing a cd drive


    The 4600 has PowerDVD to play DVDs (You should have the software CD to install it on the 3000) DVD burning software would be Roxio/Sonic, and you should have that CD too.
    If you don't have the CDs, then try download.com to download Free player software and Burning software

    I would like to use my epson stylus cx7800 to receive and send fax's. Can this be done. Please explain and instruct. Thanks. lstrat@telusplanet.net


    If you are running Windows, and have a modem, you can use the Windows Fax Services which are built in.

    You may not have it installed, as it's an optional component. Go to Control Pane/Add Remove programs. Select Windows Components on the left hand side. If Fax services is not checked, do so, and press OK. You may need your original Windows install CD to complete the task.

    If you still need help with this, please respond to this message. If I have solved your problem, I would appreciate you rating this as "solved".

    Hi gig14789,
    Never do a re-install unless you run the un-install software or remove the program from within add/remove programs in control panel. You're software is all messed up now. Lets try this.
    Turn off you're printer (press the on/off button). Click the start button & slide up to & click on control panel. Once opened. Double left click add/remove icon & it will open. Find Lexmark & un-install the software by clicking on remove. Un-install/remove anything having t do with the Lexmark printer. When finished close all opened windows. Restart you're system. When windows has finished loading I need you to creat a folder on you're desktop. Name it (Lexmark Z705). Click on the link below.

    http://search.lexmark.com/printer/US/en/15L0000
    Save this link above to you're favorites. (You may need to come here again).

    Scroll down the page till you see, Lexmark Z705 - Drivers and Downloads. Click on you're operating system.
    Click download now. Choose to save the file. Save the file into the folder you created (Lexmark Z705). Once down loaded open the (Lexmark Z705) folder. Double left click the .exe file.
    Follow the instruction & on screen prompts. The software will tell you when to power on you're printer.
    If this fails to install correctly please post back in this windows & list any error messages you might receive. List you're operating system too.

    Good Luck!

    My hp director will not open i have talked to 2 of your online experts & the told me several things but it will not work


    Hello mablekeats,
    Did you get an error message on your PC screen? Or on the printers screen?
    I understand you have uninstalled & re-installed your printer software a few times. If each time you installed & you used the HP CD you can stop using that CD. There can only be three reasons why your all-in-one fails to scan. Yes one is re-install the software. However you do not use your CD from HP. You use more current software from HP. Which you can get directly from HP & allowing HP to scan for your (connected & powered on printer). Click on the link below.
    http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/welcome.html#Support
    Click; automatically detect products, after typing in your model number.
    If this new software fails to load HP director & your scanner still fails there is one last thing that can cause your scanner from failing. I know this all too well because it happened to me the week of April 14th. In my case, after five uninstalls & six installs. I called HP. It was strange, I knew more than the tech at HP. All in all my Windows did not have some basic files in windows system & in system32 folders. It's impossible to pull the correct files off the windows CD because HP did not know the file names that should be in windows system & system32 folders. I had no choice but to do a fresh clean install of window XP. This is what you may have to do as well. The biggest difference between us is I have a spare HP printer. Different model but still an all-in-one. When I hooked up the second printer & installed the software directly from the link I posted above, the all-in one also failed to scan. The odds of two HP printer having the same problem is high.
    Once I finished installing windows & updated windows complete I went back to the HP's link & installed the online software. Everything is back to running as it should. No more scanner failures & no errors. HP director loaded.
    Sorry mablekeats, no quick fix! In regards to your printer, if you follow what I have done you're printer should be just fine.
    There is not always one way to fix anyone problem.
    Every PC is different.

    Give this a try!
    I have faith.

    Good Luck & Kind Regards

    Mike
