I am on vacation at my sisters house :)

She wanted me to hook her printer up for her, so i did :)

The problem I am having is that I can get the printer in the list of printers options when i want to print a document. I can do a test print thru the software loaded if i click on the icon, but it won't give me the option of the HP P1000 in the list of printers.

Any suggestions would be great.

HP P1000 Photosmart Printer
24th Nov-2005

Need a little more info:
1- What is the Operating System
2- What Service Pack is installed
3- Are there other USB Devices that are working
4- Model – Make – Type of PC
5- Model – Make of Motherboard
6- What printers are shown in [Printers] Folder in [Control Panel]
7- What do you mean by [Printer Icon]

If it is the Icon for HP P1000 Printer – Then Right Click on this Icon > Then set as [Default Printer]

The 1st item to know is > [If system supports USB]
2nd Item is > [Is USB Enabled]
3rd Item is > [Are USB Ports properly wired]

Usually on USB Problems – I request that the Free Home Edition of [Everest] be downloaded & Run to obtain Reports on [CPU] – [Motherboard] & [Devices] --- These reports usually answer all my questions - http://www.lavalys.c...p?pid=1&lang=en

Does [Device Manager] show any [Unknown Devices] or are there any [Yellow Warning Signs]

When Installing USB Devices – The important step is > [When to connect printer to USB Port] – Did Plug & Play find [New Hardware] & give a [Printer Installed Correctly]

Here are some HP Links for Printer in question – Look over the USB Overview Link – It is an excellent USB Info Source – This printer has [Card Reader] + Printer So should have several USB Entries in [Device Manager] – Should see:
1- USB Printer Support
2- USB Mass Storage
3- USB Printer Device
4- USB Car Reader
