I am posted this at bleepingcomputer for others to see that may be having a hard time installing a printer driver after a Windows 7 32-bit repair installation.

HP Deskjet 6540 need driver


‎06-05-2016 04:35 PM

Product Name: HP 6540
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)



Printer still very good condition.  Did Windows 7 repair install now cannot get printer to work.

HP Installation CD is outdated.  Cannot get Windows 7 Home Premium CD to install driver.


Sometimes I can get HP Deskjet 6500 Series to appear in Device Manager then it disappears.


And where is the HP printer drivers located on the Windows 7 Home Premium Disk?


This printer has worked flawlessly for years, worked on this Dell Desktop for years.


Just need a little help.

I managed to fix it.  What I did was go into REGEDIT and type in "Find"  HP Deskjet


I had to remove about 30 entries.  Then I restarted the computer.


Then I went into "Add a printer" network printer,  \\OxxxxxS-PC\HP Deskjet 6500 Series ... and Windows found the printer

and said to print a test page, and it works now.
