Tips to set up HP Photosmart printer
You have to plug in the cord to the outlet from the back of the printer. Then you would install the ink cartridge. You have to insert the cartridge in the cradle of cartridge having contacts facing towards the printer and nozzle pointing down. You would then load the card which came with printer and on the printer by pressing 'On' and then press 'OK' to calibrate that printer. Then you need to insert the CD and follow instructions for installing the drivers and software. You would then connect the printer to the system by USB and simply follow the screen instructions to install HP Photosmart Printer.
Solve printer software issues
There are issues that the system could not read the printer software CD. If the CD is not inserted properly and if there is damage in the CD or the CD-ROM, the software would not get installed. You would try to reinsert the CD and try to install. If it does not work you have to insert the known working CD and check its working. If it does not work, the issue is with the CD-ROM and you have to repair or replace that. If the problem is with the printer CD try to download the software from the HP website. You have to use the genuine copy of the CD or the software.
If there are issues with the set-up that might be due to incompatibility. You need to check the Microsoft hardware compatibility list to determine whether that added printer is compatible with the Windows Operating System that is present in the system and other system requirements. If it does not match, you have to upgrade the system features as required by the printer. You have to then try to set up the printer again.
