Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook ?

My HP Laser Jet 4L no longer prints from my dv1000 laptop

\015 I recently took a trip for a few months and had to disconnect my (hp dv1000) laptop from the HP Laser 4L printer I use wiht it and when I returned and reconnected the printer (into the very same USB port, on the upper right hand side of the laptop) nothing happened??? I can't print anything. I did try to print from notepad - no go either... I did double check to see if the print dirvers were still there (which they are AND for the XP windows I use)... I also tried unplugging the printer - no good.\015\012\015\012I did a test print on the printer itself (by holding down the print button)and it prints a perfectly fine test page from the printer itself.\015\012\015\012What do you advise??? THANKS...\015

Answers :

Remove your usb driver from control panel-system-device manager-usb,then restart your computer while printer power is on and ready. If that doesnt fix problem please look at the cable and connections.
Rowan221 - First check your printers (Start, Printers) to see if the printer still shows up. Check also that it is the default printer.

If neither of those work, the easiest thing is to delete the printer (right-click and delete, with the printer disconnected) and re-install the printer and drivers.

The drivers are available here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=25486&taskId=135 , just pick which 4L model you have and choose Windows XP as the operating system after that.

The HP support page for your printer is here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Home.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=25486&lang=en&cc=us . You can find most of the information you will need for your printer here, including a link that will automatically check for driver updates.
