I don't know your particular printer off-hand, but with other 600 series USB printers I've installed, it's important to install the HP driver package first before connecting the USB lead - only do it when the software tells you to If you connected the printer first and then tried adding the drivers you'll have to uninstall & then re-install again Check your quick start guide or the HP web site for more info.
