I've had a problem with installing the downloaded file PS 8250 from the
HP Website -- I always download and then run from my PC in case I need
Do note this very important statement which applies in general to all
HP USB Printers:
<< Note: Make sure the printer is "Not" connected to the computer
before running the download file. >>
I had a problem during the installation that I've described in another
message here where the VISTA Found New Hardware poked its head in
partway through the HP installation process and stopped either from
finding and installing the driver
Post here if that happens to you but it should not if you do not have
the printer cable plugged into the PC (it may not be enough just to
unplug it from the printer end) and do not have the printer turned off.
The installation procedure will stop and tell you to plug the cable
into the PC and printer and turn on the printer. If the VISTA module
comes up then tell it to go away and hope it stays away!
