Question about HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

New Computer I had dsl installed at home but my computer is old... I am looking for a new computer but dont want to spend that much. The only thing the computer will be used for is limited word processing and getting on the net. I know that there will be music downloaded and pictures. My question is what size of a hard drive would I need. I see 160,250.320, and 500mb. I am not sure if I just want the tower now or a package. I am not looking at spending more than $400 at this time.

These days hard drives are a thousand times larger than a few years ago, the drives you are looking at are probably 160, 250, 320 and 500Gb.

Even a 160Gb drive would probably be large enough for your described use. A 160Gb drive would hold about 40,000 songs or 80,000 high quality pictures.

Computer does not recognise Scanner -- why not?


How old is the scanner? did you read for what Windows version it was made in the first place?
If it is for an older OS then Windows7 and you are using Windows 7 or higher, you ran out of luck.
Always first install the software that came with the device. The driver needed for the device is supposed to be on the install disk.

You have to be sure the computer has the correct software to recognise the hardware and can work with it. From Windows 7 and up, for all hardware that is certified with Microsoft, you can download the drivers from Microsoft. Lots of hardware is recognised when connected and will initiate a download from Microsoft. But not all hardware will do so and not all hardware is compatible (same as not certified by Microsoft from Windows 7 and up) with the new operating systems.

Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems. So to make sure your hardware is compatible with the OS. Check the manual and find out, what you have to do so it will work on your computer.
If your device was working on a USB2 port, it also should work on an USB3 port, on the same computer. But don't expect another speed, because the slowest part decides the speed.

I just got a new lexmark and disc. i have to disconnect the old lexmark from my computer before i install the new lexmark. how do i disconnect the old printer


Once you have physically unhooked the old printer and all of its cabling and moved it out of the way of your computer, cick on Start > find the Control Panel and click on it > in the Control Panel look for Add/Remove Programs OR Programs/Uninstall Programs. Once you are in there, look for anything related to your OLD Lexmark printer - select it - and click remove/uninstall.

After removing every piece of software related to the OLD Lexmark printer, restart your computer. You should then be able to install your new printer without any issue.

It sounds as if there is a conflict between the two sets of printer drivers. I would uninstall the new printers software and install the PSC's first. If it installs ok then reinstall the new printers driver. Hopefully all will be well.

Hello and welcome draepeacock !
The only solution is a workaround :
If you have the W XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of W XP on your machine from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/
If you still have the install disc , you can also partition your primary and install W XP on the new partition from http://download.cnet.com/Partition-Wizard-Home-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html.Back up your data first.

Both are easy and safe , no specific knowledge required .
Regards .

Just got a new compaq computer windows and my lexmark z23 printer isn't work now


Did you check the Microsoft Compatability List (search that title) to see if your Lexmark is supported by the new OS on your new Compaq?

Please check the list. If yo dont find your printer listed, you will have to ask Lexmark for a driver that will work with your new computer. E-mail them if you cant find it at www.lexmark.com/support. If you dont have any luck, you might find a 3rd party driver, but you will probably have to pay for it. You could reconnect your Lexmark to your old printer and add it to your netrwork and print that way. Finally, if none of this works out, you may have to purchase a new printer certified to run on your new OS.

BTW, this is a very common thing with old printers and new computers. That is why Microsoft built the Compatability Listing.

Did you make sure that you installed the latest driver from HP's web site for Vista? Some systems will grab the wrong driver if you let it do an automatic install.

Printer not configurating with computer


Two problem that occur. You plugged in the new printer before installing the software. If you have XP it will go and install it with it's drivers. Your printer wants it's own drivers. A second problem I've seen is having too many devices plugged into USB ports. If the software was installed properly, remove non-needed USB devices and re-boot the computer. If the printer works, look into purchasing a "POWERED" USB hub. They cost between $5-$25
