HP Deskjet 3420 driver issue in windows 2003 x64 edition

I have a HP Deskjet 3420 Printer. It works fine in my old windows XP system. Now i am using Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edtion R2 x64 edition. The problem is i can't install printer driver. In windows 2003 32 bit edition it works perfectly using 2000/XP Driver from HP. But i can't find any driver for Windows 2003 x64 edition. And i also like to mention it works fine in Vista x64 and Server 2008 Datacenter Edition x64 editon using inbuilt HP 3500 series printer driver. I also tried with Wndows XP x64 driver from HP download site.But the installer saying that it is for Windows XP x64 editon and Windows 2003 X64 edition not supported. Please resolve the problem as early as possible.

There are noticeable differences between the windows platforms, especially between the server versions. Vista isn't true x64 as it's backward compatible. Windows 2003 x32 is way different then Windows 2003 x64.

If you try to use anything other then the proper driver, item won't work or load. You MUST have a x64 driver for that printer. If HP doesn't have one, they probably won't bother creating one.

Have you tried loading the HP 3500 driver in Windows 2003?

I have HP Deskjet 3420 printer, which I am using with my Compaq 7500 computer (window xp). Printer was purchased by me some 7 years back. I now want to use this printer with my dell laptop having windows 7...


There are no official drivers Win 7 avaliable for your AIO hp DJ 3420, but you can use an alternate compatible drivers for your model ie. hp DJ 3600 series. Read this link from hp Installing the Printer with an Alternate Driver in Windows 7 for a USB Cable Connection. Suggestions What have you tried to get Windows Update to work? I would suggest the following: Go to the Devices and Printers folder, Add a printer, Local Printer, LPt1, etc...when the list of printers comes up select Windows Update. After several minutes the list of printers should be updated and the Deskjet 3600 should be in the updated list. (Also keep in mind to look under 'HP' section of the driver (hp 3600) list and not 'Hewlett Packard'). Cancel the install the wizard & select "hp 3600" drivers to install on your Win 7 system. Hope it helps.

Constant error messages from hp deskjet2400


From the forum this is in, I will assume that you are running Win2k3EE on your laptop. Your issue might be a compatability issue with the print drivers. HP is notorious for making bad print drivers (ever since their aquisition of Compaq...before that, they did rock-solid work IMHO). For this printer, you may want to 1) uninstall the printer and use the Windows printer install wizard, as opposed to the HP installer, or 2) see if HP does offer a Server 2003 specific driver. HP commonly includes a bunch of "junk" in their Deskjet print drivers because those printers are targeted to individual home users who will use XP or Vista. Hope this helps...I know it isn't much to go on...good luck!
