The driver is part of the Windows OS. Just connect the USB cable from the printer to the computer and turn on the devices. You should see a Windows message about finding a new device followed by "device ready to be used".

If this doesn't happen, use Windows Update (Start

My HP Deskjet 5740 is connected bu it won't print


when you connect your printer make sure the cables are in working order and check that they are connected correctly use your manual that came with the Printer to make sure you are starting it correctly(turning it on correctly) then run the CD-Rom and follow the prompts to install, making sure you download the latest drivers if the ones on the CD that came with ur Printer is no good.
you may have to un install first and reinstall it make sure you take the time it takes to install it correctly first time and no short cuts or this could be your problem. (mostly with printers it is driver problems that prevents them from working correctly.

I do not have the CD came with my HP Deskjet 5740 printer. I need it to down load on to my Microsoft Windows XP LaptopmyWhat are my other options?


Below is the link to Hps Support site for your printer. Your Full Feature Software download is in the Driver link in small blue print as you scroll down. When you download the software/driver, choose SAVE and then choose Desktop. When the file is on your Desktop, double-click it and your installation will begin. Just follow the instructions and you should be operational in a short time.

My hp 5740 won't print for my new hp laptop, but prints for an older Toshiba laptop. I tried downloading driver softwear, but nothing is helping. Please help


What OS does your new laptop have? If Windows 7 or Vista, the driver is in the OS. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=uk&product=357202& has more information.

For Windows 7, the install is easiest if you have Windows Update set to automatically download and install updates for hardware. Click on the Windows key, in the Search Programs and Files box, type "change device installation" without the quotes. Click Change device installation settings, and the appropriate window will open. Select Yes, do this automatically (recommended) if it isn't the current option. Then Click Save Changes. Restart your computer if needed.

Then plug in the printer's USB cord to the printer and turn it on. Then connect the cable to the computer and watch for a Your devices are ready message.

If you have already connected the printer to the computer, but did not have Windows Update on automatic. Click the Windows key or the Start button, click on Windows Update. Look for any HP updates in the list and install. Try checking for new updates if you do not see the update.

Please note that you will lose some of the features of the printer. (the button for PhotoSmart Essentials will not work for example.) You will also need to set Printing Properties from File> Print > Properties instead of HP Toolbox.

I hope this helps.
