Slow boot after installing the HP 4380

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.

Thanks,

Richard

    This is happening to me too. Except this is a brand new 7280 all in one HP that I bought because my older by only 2 yrs HP printer was making my system that has a brand new mother board take what seems like forever - 3 minutes or so - to boot ... sitting at the screen that gives the option to press F8 but that doesn't work ... no keystrokes work ... it must be waited out ... i have found that if i disconnect the printer, it boots fine ... but shouldn't my boot be faster with a printer attached ??? ... a brand new properly installed printer??

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).

The solution:

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.

    Oops bit jumbled there:

HP Officejet Pro L7780 Drivers
I think the drivers are not installed on the new system. Please visit the above link from HP Official Support. Select the Operating System (e.g Windows XP OR Windows7 32-bit) that you have on your PC. Download the drivers/ Software and install them by following the on-screen instructions.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

HP 520 Notebook. Shuts down before installing new OS.


I agree a clean install is always the better, fresh start J
OK it sounds like missing drivers, what you have to do is create a new installation CD that will load the drivers for your laptop as it boots. I haven’t try this method with windows 7, but I know it works well with Windows XP. Try and create a new Windows XP CD with the drivers see: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/35/
The start a new installation with this Windows XP CD and reformat you computer, after that you can do a new upgrade to windows 7

LJ 2840 installation on XP PRo


Check that the firewall either windows or other is not active and not allowing you to install drivers. Also if your computer is in user mode and does not have the right to install drivers login as administrator mode and install drivers through there.

Once deactivated firewall install new drivers should be OK then.

Thanks J
