Tried Win 2000 drivers but no luck. Have used HP computers and printers for many years and am very disappointed in their lack of response to the problem. If no positive results by the end of the day, there will be a new (non HP) system on this desk in the morning.
I'm trying to remember how I got them to work. It's been awhile. As with most HP stuff you have to install the software first, then make the connection to the printer. Connecting the printer first is out-XP doesn't seem to like that.
Try uninstalling the printer, reboot, then connect the printer. XP should recognize it and install the driver.
I use a Belkin USB kit with a USB connection for the 2200 which is faster than the parallel cable. It's also handy because you can unplug it and plug it back in while the computer's on for XP to recognize stuff.
If worse comes to worse, uninstall the printer from XP, unplug the printer cable and reinstall the HP software that came with it-just follow the instructions. As I said, HP's are famous for needing the software installed before physically hooking up the printer.
That should solve your problem---I hope.....It's all I could remember from my installation.
