-=PCTechTalk=- Re: HP problem

I can't find the drivers..and the site says the most current driver is ON
the computer. XP supposedly has current everything but when I checked out
some of the other installations for other printers in windows all the
printed text said none of them were current to that printer...I tried other
ways of getting around that but so far I am stuck. I tried to install the
old software in the beginning not knowing I couldn't and it stopped me at a
the point of installing the driver..but I figured other parts of that
program WERE installed..so I almost think the whole thing needs to be
deleted and start over off the restore disk. Problem is there is nothing in
add/remove and when I do search I get so many possibilities that COULD be hp
files and I don't which are I am up a creek..I would clean the whole thing
out and start over but I don't know how or where.
sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

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
| succession. THAT will stop and then it produces page after page of jumble
| 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
| totaly delete the whole program to try and start over. There are so many
| 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...
