I went to the HP site to find the software for my printer/scanner. I misplaced my orginal disk that came with it. All I can find on the HP site is for F4200 series. Is this suppose to work on the F4280???. I uninstalled my current software and installed the one for the F4200 series. It said installation complete/successful. But I get error messages and tells me that I need to upgrade my software. Is the F4200 and the F4280 the same software??????

I see from the post that you are having issues installing your HP DeskJet F4280 printer on your PC running Windows 7. Don't worry as I have a few steps to help you get through this concern,
To answer your question, F4200/F4224 are of the same series so it should work, However, I'm going to help you with the steps:
Let's try these steps here:
1.) In Windows, search for and open Programs and features
2.) Select your HP Printer
3.) Select Uninstall
