SoWhat did you try? Did you install from Cd rom? or default install? What Operating System? When you go into Control Panel; And click on Printers; Is your HP showing?

Yes, the printer picture is sitting in the printers box. I am running XP. Cheers

Basic Steps Assuming you followed all commands; I'm guessing that you MIGHt need to restart PC? And see if NEW hardware picks up printer; Even though you have installed it; Check cables; Make sure printer is turned on; Check in control panel; Printers; And right click on PROPERTIES; Then click on TEST Printer; See if that helps; :)
