    Windows XP not recognizing the connected HP Deskjet F2280.

    I have already installed the printer drivers and also installed the HP Printer application on my windows XP computer, and then connected the HP Deskjet F2280 to the CPU but my machine can't find the printer which is already connected. What else I need to do now in order to establish a connection.

    Hello friend,

    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.................

    1.The cable is the main problem.

    2.So check whether you connected them correctly.

    3.Then you check the power connection of it.

    4.If that is not your problem then the problem is with the drivers.

    5.So you try to uninstall them and then install them again.

    6.If still you have the problem then you try to update them to the latest version.

    I hope by doing as i said you can solve your problem.

    Have a nice day......................
