-=PCTechTalk=- Re: HP problem

The typical fix should be to go to the HP site and make sure you get the most 
up-to-date drivers for that printer. Then, completely uninstall the drivers 
you're using now, and then reinstall the new drivers.
Have you tried it that way?

| I have an HP printer version Deskjet 882c..it's own software doesn't work
| with XP..I think it was "95-98" respectively. It worked fine on both those
| systems. HP installed a much leaner version on SP minus some nice features.
| I didn't have problems until I TRIED to update with the older version--not
| thinking there would be a problem. Since then the printer isn't functioning
| well without all kinds of errors. I tried removing the version I installed.
| Didn't change anything. IF I am lucky I get one page printed and then the
| computer goes into error--all the lights starting repeating on and of in

| until I shut it off, cancel and reboot and sometimes I have to go thru THAT
| 4 or5 times. Gotten very pesty this situation. I don'tknow WHAT to remove to

| files and I think some unrelated to the printer.
| I have a restore disk that has the files on it but getting rid of un
| necessary to get back to normal???ARGHHH..its been too far back to think
| about useing restore in the computer.AND I can't find the owners manual.
| GROWL.. I didn't think about the "in house" restore in time. SOOO
| Any ideas?.. Been shuffling thru this for days...
