HP Deskjet 450 & Windows 8 / 8.1

...I am trying to install my portable HP 450 printer with Windows 8 (now 8.1)

The printer duly is recognized and installed as a printer but it doesn't print.

I tried to install via the compability mode XP and Windows 7, but no success.

Any help?

Re: HP Deskjet 450 & Windows 8 / 8.1

I am also having difficulties with my Hp deskjet 450. I did have it installed once on my windows 8 as a printer. I had same problem you did, error printing and would not print. Made the mistake on deleteing it to see if reinstalling would help fix the printing issue. Now I can not get it to install as a printer. Please help by letting me know what steps you took to install it as a printer. Tech support was no help. They told me that the serial no. does not exist and may not be compatible with windows 8. To me they are a joke.


If you find the answer to also getting it to print, please let me know that trick as well. Thank you
