(solved) HP Deskjet 5600 Series

3 posts in this topic

Hi folks!

Losing what is left of my hair here....LOL

I have the above Deskjet Printer and it usually installs automatically in Windows 7.....I am building a new image and installing all program software, drivers etc before creating my backup image...

I have tried removing the USB cable and reinstalling through windows...but I get failed to install...?!!

I have tried updating from windows and there is a driver, but that wont install... Have even downloaded that driver and tried manually to install it...no dice..

Has anyone any suggestions as to what I can do?

Hi allen2

Sorry, been busy ...should have put solved on this one yesterday....

OK! I went to device manager and instead of automatically updating driver I chose to do it manually..

I then chose to install device manually and chose printer from the list...it gave me the list for all manufacturers, but I hadn't thought about updating the list...just used what was there...

After updating the list my driver from windows was there and it installed no problems......really strange....... :wacko:

Anyway, the long and short of it is that I have fixed it.....

Thanks for coming by
