Hello there.

You did the correct thing in downloading the drivers, unfortunately you need the Windows Vista version of the drivers to work with your computer, the Windows XP ones do not work.

Please click here to download the drivers for Windows Vista, you can delete the XP driver and unplug the printer. When the download is complete reboot your computer and run the setup file.

Hope this helps.

My computer was running fine...changed a printer cartridge on my printer HP Deskjet 6940. Only other thing I did was click on an HP popup that said "Update drivers". Now I get a message "hpqSTE08 An...


Don't worry. The problem is simple to solve.

Go to start.
Click control panel.
Find "Add or remove programs" or "Uninstall programs" or something like that.
Now when the list appears... search for : hpqSTE08.exe
Uninstall it.

After this... check if the comp stops giving trouble.

Some malware camouflage themselves as hpqSTE08.exe
in such a case... your comp will still give trouble.
Run a deep virus scan using your anti-virus (I certainly hope you have one installed)

Cheers! and Good Luck!

Please mark the problem as solved to let me know it is done.
Thanks.

I am going to buy a new computer today with Window 7. Do I need to do anything to make sure my HP Photosmart D7160 Ink Jet printer works?


Yah, go on support.hp.com and verify that it has a Windows 7 driver installation for it. Some printers from HP do not. Some have a driver that came with windows 7 for usb only, in which case you can hack it to add Standard TCP/IP port once it has been installed USB. Of course that might support ALL of the things that the printer can do.

Recently downloaded an driver update, printer stopped printing. using windows XP PRO OS. Lost the original disk software for the printer


You may have downloaded the incorrect driver. I would try using the driver directly from the manf. website. You can find the download here: DOWNLOAD

Vista automatically sometimes sets some virtual printer as the default one, so you'll need to manually select your real printer as the default one in the control panel -> printers. You right click on your printers name and select option: Set as default.
