HP Printer deskjet f2100 driver for win 8


Hi,

You dont have drivers for Deskjet F2100. You need to connect the printer via USB cable and the printer will be ready to print. To SCan a file, you need to use paintbrush or any other image application tool.

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.
