Greetings. Windows 7 recently (a few days ago) replaced Vista on my Toshiba laptop. (We w/hold any critique of W7 for now.) For the past week I have been meandering - at times careening - thru workarounds, diagnostics, Control Panel recommendations and other rabbit holes. All I need are - 1- a functional driver for the hp officejet 410 all-in-one printer which is compatible with my OS 2- to have my computer detect said printer (and software) 3- to have the various parts function as a seamless whole I've been, as I said, working on this for several days. It feels like I've entered a labyrinth of sorts. Thank you. Shalom - a disillusioned Luddite
my suggestion, is download the XP Driver (save to the desktop ...) BEFORE you run it, right click on it, select Properties, select Compatibility, check the box "Run this program in compatibility mode" and select Windows XP (Service Pack 3)
That should work. IF you have 7 Ultimate, you can also run it in XP Mode ...
