    I am trying to install my printer HP Photosmart 7150 and it won't regonise it.

    Has anybody got any ideas? I have tried a different USB cable and still no luck.

    The printer turns on as normal etc.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to post this on a printer/computer related forum rather than an education forum?

    No because there are some computer geniuses here. By the time I find a computer forum register etc I would have thrown my printer out of the window.

    Have you tried un-plugging it from your computer, installing the software on your computer. Turning off your computer, connecting printer and then turn the computer back on?

    fixed it.

    In the end I just installed it manaualy by getting the INF files and selecting the USB00001 port.

    A lot of people wouldn't have known how to do this though.

    Make sure you install the drivers before you actually connect the printer via usb cable or the install will be corrupt.

    edit: oops, too late!
