Hi jillhornby
Try first deleting and reinstalling your HP unit drivers , to see if the problem is coming from there .
I don't think so . Your computer is probably infected by a malware .
Download and install MalwareBytes from
Let it scan your system and destroy all indesirable corrupting applications .

    I had this same problem and found HP troubleshooting not hitting the mark. I finally found a forum that recommended taking out the cartridges and wiping the print heads with a wet paper towel until a good flow of ink shows up on the wet part of the paper towel. In my case the new color cartridge initially had very little ink coming out. After a few wipes with towel I had a good flow of color ink on the towel. I re-installed both cartridges and the printer started printing at top speed in my next print job.

HP does not make a toolbox software for Windows 7 64 bit. The stance they seem to be taking is that the unit is 3 years old, tough luck, buy a new machine or settle for printing only.

Install drivers for hp 3050 and it still won't

If your installing your printer onto different computers and they aren't working on any computers then that tells me the printer is not working at all. Usually a problem with the main board.

Maxdata desktop pc has install problems & runs very slow

I may be completely off base, but you should look into how much free disk space you have on the drive, and whethere it is less than 15% disk space free.

Windows will not defrag if there is very little space free. In that case, you can use disk compression, defrag then remove the compression. Or uninstall thngs you don't need, then defirag.

But if you are up against it with very little space left, you will continue to have problems.

Good luck,
