Question about HP - HP Photosmart 8250 printer
I have a HP photosmart 8250. I updated to service pack 2 and when I rebooted all heck broke loose. When I rebooted and it went to the desktop everything locked up. The only thing that worked was the mouse. I went into safe mode and when I went into it a pop kept coming up saying error in trying to install my printer (I never wanted to install a printer) I did a update install of xp (press f12) then load off disc and re install without losing your desktop. Everything works now but my computer wont recognize my printer. It says "USB device found" when it should say my printer name. It installs then says invalid data. I tried it on my laptop and it recognized it. I reloaded the driver and software. Called Dell and they tried some stuff. CAN ANYONE HELP? Is there something in registration that I can change? HELP HELP! Shawn
