Slow boot after installing the HP 4380

I have an HP L2000 laptop with Windows XP Pro. I just installed the 4380 and it installed OK and printed wireless just fine.

But now when I turn on the computer it takes forever to boot up. The desktop background pops up but the icons take forever, almonst like it's not going to boot up. There is a long lull and the HD light flickers and then runs and then the icons show up. But the hour glass runs for a long time.

Before the install of the 4380 the laptop booted fairly fast. also it seems like the computer runs slower.

Any suggestions before I attempt to call HP.

Thanks,

Richard

    This is happening to me too. Except this is a brand new 7280 all in one HP that I bought because my older by only 2 yrs HP printer was making my system that has a brand new mother board take what seems like forever - 3 minutes or so - to boot ... sitting at the screen that gives the option to press F8 but that doesn't work ... no keystrokes work ... it must be waited out ... i have found that if i disconnect the printer, it boots fine ... but shouldn't my boot be faster with a printer attached ??? ... a brand new properly installed printer??

My notebook operating on vista tells me that my software needs a digital signature


It should install fine without being a signed driver. Even though it is an XP driver it will be fine for Vista. I would recommend just downloading the latest software from the manufacturer's website though to be sure.

I have HP Officejet 6500 connected via USB to office desktop. I also need print from vista laptops on the same wireless network as the desktop. How do you do it ?


Hi, I just completed this same query this week.

to set up my remote network i followed promts from windows and then had to run my windows xp startup disc on my vista laptop.

After that was complete i had to install the hp printer setup cd onto my vista laptop and connect the hp printer to my router using the ethernet cable. I followed the prompts on the vista as the cd continued to install. then at the end of it all it showed i had correctly installed the printer via wireless and asked me to do a practice print which i did and all seems fine.

I can now print from my vista laptop and my windows xp desktop. I hope this helps

I had this problem too. You need the HP Wireless Assistant. Download it here- ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp36501-37000/sp36770.exe

Once installed, open the HP Wireless Assistant and click Properties button. Check the box next to "Independent controls for installed wireless devices." Then click "Turn All On" button. On next boot it will be enabled!

HP Pavilion DV1000 drivers...


I found the problem to be a rather simple but frustrating one....when is an HP dv1000 not a dv1000....almost always!! You cannot get the correct downloads based on the model number on the tag. You must specify the PRODUCT NUMBER on the HP download site from the tag, not model. You can enter the general DV1000 and get to the download page and look for the entry "Not your Product?!" Follow that link and enter the PN from the tag....download those and you will get drivers that work with your unit. My "DV1000" was actually a DV1660!!!!
