Thanks for the reply...I have installed 32 bit Windows 7.
Some other info via device manager is...
for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
There is no driver
selected for the device information set or element.
To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.
PCI bus 3, device 1, function 2
PCI bus 3, device 1, function 3
clicking update driver results in nothing.
Also I have found that my HP Solutions Centre can not find my printer so i can't utilize the scanning facility though the computer can see the printer to print! After Googling this seems to be a common problem and more to do with HP Software perhaps.
