    The printer is actually a 2570 but uses the same cd 3200 series, the 2570 doesn't come up on the list. After the the printer is detected, the install accelerator bar shows 1/8, but never finish(CD Q7211-10001). To get the acer travelmate 4220, XP laptop attention, the restart button must be pushed. Windows groans out that the install is not complete, but doesn't respond if the continue is hit. One must take the computer down completely. Upon reboot, the hp software is backed out and on several occasions error sent to hp(today about 10am pst). Norton security was shutoff with switch settings prior to install.

Go to this website if you haven't installed the software. Download the driver and then install it, and the installation should walk you through the process. If it doesn't detect the printer, it could be a bad cable. Make sure that the cables are inserted tightly and the power is on. Hope this helps!

Can't run on windows 7

Go to the HP web site and download the software. Choose whether you have the 32-bit or 64-bit OS here:]&product=439488 and click Next. The driver will be the first option and the second link will let you order a new CD with the drivers. If you plugged in the USB cable before before installing the software, you should uninstall the generic driver and then unplug the USB cable before installing the software.

I hope this helps.
