i cannot install ny printer.running xp home edition.system does not find new hardware when connected.Insatall of on another pc.Tried removing existing drivers and re installing ,have denstalled and reinstalled ltp1 port but know still no luck in installing via plug and play.Have tried installing manually and still unable to print.last restore is a clean install of xp.Any ideas plse.
i have the same printer, the xp drivers are on the windows xp cd and should load automatically. if you go to hp web they will refer you back to the cd. i did a reformat and forgot about this and the hp web referred me back to the cd so plugged the printer in and followed new hardware wizard all ran ok.
have tried installing from xp cd using new hardware wizard and still no luck.Have removed the printer completly.de install the lpt1 port restarted the pc and lpt1 is automatically added but does not find the printer.Can not install printer either by PnP facilty or by manually installing the hardware.
