Re: printer wont print with new pc
Kidd, you need to go to this site:
The operating system has changed since either XP sp2 and its plethera of security updates and hot fixes or even that you are using Vista. The printer needs newer drivers downloaded and installed. Make sure all instances of the existing printer are deleted/or are uninstalled.
fyi I had found this while searching. Not that it helps..but other people feel your pain.

this could be a very complex problem if you hooked your printer up to your pc prior to running the driver instalation disk. most printers requie you hook them up when qued by the install. the best advice i can give would be to uninstall the printer remove the printer connewction from the usb and insure it is removed from the device manager located in the properties section of you computer.
hmm error on blue page saying windows setup can not complete? ok this sounds like your disk is dirty or scratched. check the disk to insure that its not dirty or scratched. even the smallest finger print can interrupt the installation try cleaning the disk.
Just because it’s new does not mean New Old Stock.Your print head is plugged.No if or buts about it.Contact HP and tell them you situation.If they don’t help you, box it up and take it back.Buy an Epson.
You may have the printer settings set to pause accidentally or set to work offline. Go to printer icon, right click and scroll down to check all your settings, if any of above apply, untick them. Try again. The error message is telling you it cannot communicate with the pc. Have you updated anything on your pc, sometimes new systems settings, particulary windows updates and service packs can cause drivers to become incompatable. If all else fails, you could try getting updated drivers from the Compaq website.
Onmly Compaq will have the approprive driver download.
You are correct to assume a Vista compatability issue- this is becoming more evirdent with many peripherals.
By the bye- the printer is of course a rebadged Lexmark or HP or Brother [ can be either] see if you can see which and check the appropriate web site.
