      Step one: Gather the required network setup items
      You must have the following items before you install the HP product on the wireless network:
      Don't worry if you do not have all of the required items yet! The HP Network Diagnostic Utility can help you gather some of these items ( ).
      •    Network name: The network name is the SSID
      •    WEP key or WPA security passphrase
      • A computer that is connected to the wireless network
      • Internet access: HP recommends broadband Internet access such as cable or DSL
      • Your wireless-capable HP product: Place it close to the computer during the installation procedure
      • A USB cable (used only during installation). Do not connect the cable now
       If you have difficulty gathering your network information, try the HP Network Diagnostic Utility to retrieve your network name and password.

        Click Start , click My Computer , and then double-click the CD drive.
      2. Follow the on-screen instructions to start the installation.
        If prompted to choose the type of installation, review the following information:

        For full use of all your product features : This installation provides full product functionality. HP also includes valuable software to help you get the most out of your product. 

        HP designed this type of installation to work for most users.
        A custom type of installation might be available for your product. This installation allows you to install the minimum software required or the preferred software. Use this type of installation only if you have one of the following reasons: 

        • The computer is low on hard disk space.
        • You attempted a recommended type of installation and received errors. (If errors occur during the recommended installation, fix them before trying a custom installation.)

      Step one: Download the software
      Many products have more than one driver option on the downloads page. Choices might include a Basic type, and Full Feature type. If both options are available, the following information might help you decide which driver to download.
      Basic typeFull Feature type 

      (Strongly Recommended)
      HP does not recommend installing the basic driver unless you have one of the following reasons:

      • You plan to use the All-in-One for printing only.
      • You plan to scan with Microsoft WIA drivers, Twain drivers, or third party scanning software.


      The basic driver is smaller and downloads more quickly. However, it does not provide the software needed by most users to copy and fax from the computer, and to use all the scanning features of the product.
      For full use of all your product features: This driver provides complete product functionality for printing, scanning, copying, and faxing.

      HP also includes valuable software to help you get the most out of your product. The software varies by product , but here are some examples:

      • Searchable help filestailored to your product
      • Image-editing software

  • Installing the Printer Software in Windows 7 for a USB Cable Connection

    • Introduction
      This document explains how to install the print drivers and other software for your HP product. Please read this if you plan to use a USB cable to connect your product to a computer that has a Windows 7 operating system.
      Figure 1: USB cable
      USB cable
      CAUTION: Do NOT connect the USB cable now. Wait until the on-screen instructions prompt you to connect it. HP recommends using a USB cable that is less than 3 m (10 ft) long.
      A print driver is a software program that allows the computer to run the product. HP offers a variety of print drivers and software on the product CD and the HP Web site. The available choices vary by product.
      NOTE:If you are trying to resolve a particular issue or error message, reinstalling a driver might not resolve the issue. Unless you know that reinstalling is the correct solution, search for help documents that pertain to your specific issue or error message.
      Should I install with the product CD, download the software, or use the Windows 7 driver?
      Don’t worry if you don’t have the product CD! You can download the most current software available for your product from the HP Web site at no cost. The following information might help you decide which installation method to use:
      CDDownload
      For a new product:CD installation is a quick and easy method.If you do not have a CD, you can download the software you need.
      For an older product:CD installation might not work if you are installing the product on a computer running a newer operating system that released AFTER the HP product released.

      For example, Windows 7 released in 2009. If HP manufactured your product prior to that year, the CD that came with the product might not work correctly on a computer running Windows 7.
      Downloading the software provides the best results for your older product. Even though it takes more time than using the CD, downloading the latest software can help you avoid installation issues.

      Downloading is the recommended method if your computer operating system released after the HP product released.
      About the software:The software on the CD is current to the date of the product release.The software you can download from the HP Web site is most current software available for your product. HP often updates software and drivers AFTER the product and CD release to the market.

  • OS X 10.7 Lion: Installing and Using the Printer with Lion

    • Introduction
      With the release of OS X 10.7 Lion, HP is providing updated print drivers and software. These updates are available through Apple Software Updates in Mac OS X.
      Depending on the product functionality, one or more of the following HP software components might be included in the HP driver update:
      • HP print driver
      • HP fax driver
      • HP Utility
      • HP scan driver
        NOTE:Scan support for many HP All-in-Ones is included with the HP software available through Apple Software Updates. To scan, use Preview , Image Capture or the Scanicon from the print driver queue.
      After the public release of Lion, HP is releasing updated full HP software packages for many models on the HP Software and Drivers page. These software packages will include the HP installer with network setup and HP Scan 3. The schedule delay allows time for full testing and quality assurance from HP against the final OS X 10.7 release.
       Important : Older HP software might not be compatible with OS X 10.7 Lion. After installing OS X 10.7, you might receive an 'Unsupported Operating System ' message if you install previous Mac OS X 10.3, 10.4, 10.5, or 10.6 software, either from an original product CD or from HP Web downloads. This is expected behavior because the software is designed for operating systems previous to OS X 10.7. See the following sections for information on using your product with OS X 10.7.
