Question about HP Photosmart C4280 Aio Printer

1 Answer

Reinstall software each time the printer is reconnected


The printer is connected to a Toshiba A55-S326 laptop running XP Home edition.
Almost daily, the printer is disconnected from the laptop because the laptop is used in other places. My problem is when I return and reconnect the printer, the printer will not work until I reinstall it. This is time consuming, the install disk has to be placed back into the cd and I have to wait until everything is finally reinstalled. I have copied the disk to the hard drive but I still have to direct the program to that folder. The printer that was installed previously will not work so I have to reinstall. After the re-installation, if I check the printer and fax folder the printer will be installed as a copy of the previous printer. At one time this printer was listed 8 times. What can be done so that when I reconnect the printer I won't have to reinstall the software each time?


Completed registration steps, did not solve problem.
Rebooted computer after install,
Used same USB port.
Searched for updated drivers
None of these solved the problem.

Hmmm...maybe the way to do this is to use the remove hardware icon in control panel, instead of simply disconnecting the printer from the laptop.

also, go to www.hp.com and get the newest drivers, which are almost certainly more recent vintage than those on the cd.

My toshiba laptop satellite A55-S326 wont boot. Only can use the escape key then go into bios but still doesn't boot. Tried my recovery disc & it goes thru the instal but then still goes to a blank...


Your install discs are bad. Please don't shoot the messenger. Call Toshiba for new discs. Here is the number (it took me 30 minutes to find this. Please give me a 4-thumbs-up rating. If you don't, I spent time away from family for free).
(800) 457-7777 (toll-free)

I can't boot my CD XP,boot to other devices too.. can u help me?


You can select an alternate boot device by pressing F10 or F12 as the Toshiba is booting up. You will get a list of boot devices, move the left or right arrow to select the device you want to boot.
OR
Go into the BIOS configuration and change the boot order of the devices your want to boot up with.

My toshiba sattellite a55-s326 has a flashing yellow light but won't power up.


Hello,

You may try this; Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, and power ON the NB. If the laptop will not boot by doing this, take it to the nearest repair center to have it check for possible motherboard issue.

Hope this works

Media Keys don't work after XP reinstall


They should be included with the chipset drivers, you might try looking for a F Lock on your keyboard. Maybe you need to turn it on?
