Re: How to: Uninstall HP Printer Drivers in Windows 8

I have a Toshiba; running Windows 8:

 

My laptop wasn't recognizing my HP Photosmart C309g Scanner for some reason. Although I could print, I need the scanner, so I decided to uninstall/reinstall everything. 

 

Perhaps I uninstalled the wrong feature first, but whatever happened, my laptop had a hiccup & windows wouldn't load.  I used the onboard problem solving feature and windows did reload. 

 

I returned to my efforts to reinstall the printer drivers (using the CD), but when the Setup window appears,  the Install option doesn't appear.  I only have the option to Exit the software setup window. 

 

Does this mean there are still remnants of the previous installation?  In the Programs and Features list, there are remants (HP Cust Part Program; HP Imaging Device Functions; and HP Solution Ctr, all of which were installed at the same time as the printer driver.   Nothing happens when I right click to uninstall or double click on it to uninstall. 

 

Any suggestions?  Thank you!

Re: How to: Uninstall HP Printer Drivers in Windows 8

HI,

 

I have installed HP M226dw driver which was downloaded from HP support and installed in my Laptop. I am able to print the file wireless with most of the application but not from PDF. So i though while installing drivers might not installed properly, then i uninstall from my Laptop using program and features.

 

Again when i am trying to install it's not installing the driver, it says driver was not installed properly and running uninstall process and asking to reboot the PC. and the process repeating same all the time.

 

I did this process about 15-20 time but no use.

 

Can any one help me out in this.

 

Thanks in Advance
