Re: Estimated ink levels not showing

Hi, Kyle. Thanks for your help. I have 2 computers in a network and HP is installed in both of them. I can reach the "Estimated ink levels screen" in my computer which has XP Pofessional, but in my wife's computer which has Windows 7 64 bits I cannot get that command. The screen that shows in my wife's computer is somewhat different and do not have the same commands: It only shows the following commands:

 

See what's printing - Customize your printer - Set preferences

 

Mine has 10 commands and the "Estimated ink levels" shows under the "Shopping resources" title. Wy wife's does not have the shopping resources title.

 

I hope this is clear enough to be understood. Thanks again. luineida

Re: Estimated ink levels not showing

She may only have the basic drivers installed and not the full feature drivers. 

 

Here is a link to where she can download the full feature software and drivers for the printer:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=al-91736-1&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&...

 

Try installing that and let me know if that resolves the issue for you.

Re: Estimated ink levels not showing

After turning back the clodk on my pc to an earlier state using system restore I no longer got the ink level when starting my pc nor after each printing job. what made the difference? I am running Windows 7 home premium and have an HP Officejet J6450 All-in-One connected via USB 2.0 cable to PC. Whatever made it stop was effected by the system restore and I am able to get the ink levels in HP Solution Center no problem but no longer get the pop ups at startup and after each print job has finnished. What can I do to restore these pop ups?
