Hi Mundo
You Have to Put the hp 940 driver on both machines
i think you can download drivers for the 940 from drivers.com

hope this helps

thanx

So, does it matter if both systems have different drivers? The computer will have the XP version and my laptop will have the win 7. The only problem is that drivers.com won't pick up the printer because it is not directly connected to my laptop. Secondly, i was able to download the driver only to the laptop if it was directly wired to it. So i think i need to manually download the driver and apply it to the XP computer. Also, one more problem, i cannot add or change the driver on my laptop. When i choose to add a different driver from the xp computer, it only gives me options for earlier versions of windows, like 2000, 98, etc.

Hi

I don't know what you mean by .."if you don't have a USB port.."

When you select Add a Printer

Select Local Printer

Then select use existing port and leave it at LPT1 for now.

Select next

Then select Windows update.

It will return an updated printer list that does have a driver for that printer.

The 970, 990c and 990Csi drivers also work for the Photoshop P1XXX series inkjets.

1. In "Devices and Printers" click "Add a printer"
2. Select "Add a local printer" - IGNORING the "only if you don't have a USB printer" (Trust me.)
3. Under the "Use and existing port" option, select "USB001 (Virtual printer port for USB)
4. Click "Next" then "Windows Update"
5. After a few seconds, the "HP Deskjet 930C/932C/935C" option will appear.
6. Highlight it and click "Next"
VOILA'! Yeah, it miffs me that the printer name and icon are not for my P1000, but hey, "the proof is in the printing"! And, using the menus, I can even clean my cartridge.
Thanks for the tip on the 930C - something I'd never have tried otherwise.
I'm running Win 7 Professional on a MacBook Pro in a Bootcamp partition. FYI, with 4 GB RAM it SCREAMS on PC games!

I tried following the above steps, but the printer is printing only blank pages. What do I need to do?

[edit]
Nevermind. It's working now. I chose the wrong printer driver.

Note that I'm not suffering from the "phase" problem described earlier. All the text is crystal clear.

Hi I could not print with my HP photosmart on windows 7. HP have a driver now, so I plugged in the printer and started trouble shoot, it fixed it, and now I can print directly onto DVD CDs. I had previously asked HP to let me know when a driver was available, but they have not.
