HP Deskjet 2050 J510a Drivers for Windows XPSP3.I installed the product CD but PC can detect printer

1. Product Name and Number: HP Deskjet 2050, J510a, CH350C printer.

2. Operating System installed (if applicable) : Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3.

Error message (if any) : I installed the printer software and drivers using the intallation CD provided. I followed the onscreen instructions and when I connect the USB Cable to the printer and the PC, I get nothing. The scrren still tells me to conect the two products using the USB Cable; which I have done. The PC somehow does not detect the Printer if I may assume. I tried diffrernt USB ports on the PC and even a new Laptop running on windows Vista. Still no avail. Are the drivers not on the installation CD? Does the printer have a special USB Cable because I bought a new one since the printer didn't come with one. Please help because I need to get my thesis printed before Sept. 19.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Kenneth Agyeman-Badu.
