HP 2544

I keep getting the message 'hardware was not intalled because the wizard cannot find the necessary software', although the disc has been inserted. I have a Toshiba computer using Windows XP.

Printer Hint #1 - Always buy a printer with a display panel for easy configuration.
Printer Hint #2 - Always buy a printer with separate black and separate color cartridges.
Printer Hint #3 - Always buy a wireless printer with an Ethernet port for backup.
Special Hint: There is a 97.2% (and increasing) chance the information you seek is in the User Guide/Manual or on your printers HP Support Page. Remember, Google is your friend.

Re: HP 2544

many thanks for taking the trouble to respond, but the computer has now totally crashed, so have brought a new one. Once again, many thanks.
