Question about Printers & Copiers
I have an HP L2000 laptop with Windows XP Pro. I just installed the 4380 and it installed OK and printed wireless just fine.
But now when I turn on the computer it takes forever to boot up. The desktop background pops up but the icons take forever, almonst like it's not going to boot up. There is a long lull and the HD light flickers and then runs and then the icons show up. But the hour glass runs for a long time.
Before the install of the 4380 the laptop booted fairly fast. also it seems like the computer runs slower.
Any suggestions before I attempt to call HP.
I am running XP Pro and I have a HP F2280 and had the same problem of a slow startup, 90 secs before desktop icons appeared and before computer would connect to the net.
After reading some spurious half baked solutions on various forums I found the culprit(s).
In Services disable hpqcxs08 and HPCUE Discovery Service, these will stop the slow boot up and as far as I can tell at the moment. They are listed under the Microsoft Corporation manufacturer column which threw me initially.
Only one of these might be the cause of the slow boot but the printer appears to be working fine with both disabled so I won't be enabling either unless I have to.
