In most cases, driver installation errors can be resolved by simply reinstalling the software. A restart is sometimes necessary before attempting the installation again. However, in the case of more complex software such as the HP printing software, a failed installation may cause all subsequent installation attempts to fail. This is because a failed installation can leave locked files or registry information, which causes the next installation to fail. In these cases, the next step is to uninstall the previous installation first, so that a clean system can be used to reinstall the HP driver software. The simplest way to do that is to uninstall the HP printer software from the Control Panel -> Uninstall (or Add/Remove programs) option.
If, however, the installation of the HP printer software fails at an early stage, the software may not appear in the Control Panel uninstall list. This means that deleting the failed software will not be possible this way. The next thing to do in this case is to use a cleanup utility to repair the corrupt registry. To this end, Microsoft used the Windows Installer Cleanup utility, but because of conflicts with Office 2007, it was replaced by the Microsoft Fix It solution. The Fix It solution will erase the wrong registry keys that can prevent the installation of programs. Remember that it does not delete any files from the HP driver installation that failed. These will simply be overwritten during the next installation. Instead of the Microsoft solution, you can also use a program to scan and repair the full Windows registry, which is not limited to installation issues. You can use such a program to clean all HP entries on your system before attempting reinstallation. If you are running XP or Vista, it is also possible that the Windows Installer itself is corrupted. In this case, you can simply try to download the Windows Installer and reinstall it.
- Check the manufacturer’s name and model of your printer (the names are on the back of the printer).
- Check the name of your operating system
- Download and run the driver file.
- After the installation process is complete, the message “Setup is finished” or a similar message appears.
- You can now print the documents, but before you can check the installation. Simply go to Control Panel >> Devices >> Printers >> Properties of Your Printer >> Print a Test Page.
Some drivers do not start after installation. If your printer is supposed to be connected via a wireless connection using Ethernet cables, the troubleshooting process will be as follows:
– make sure everything is on and connected,
– Go into your word processor of choice,
– Try printing a test page to see if it really works.
– If nothing happens, it’s time to do some restarts. Restart all your network devices, turn off your computer, turn off and unplug your printer, wait a few minutes, and start over.
