It can be concluded that the issues are appeared because of the system or the ink. The HP Easy Start will search for and install the latest software for your printer and then guide you through the printer settings. In computers, a printer driver or a print processor is a piece of software that converts the data to be printed to the form specific to a printer. The purpose of printer drivers is to allow applications to do printing without being aware of the technical details of each printer model.
Printer drivers should not be confused with print spoolers, that queue print jobs and send them successively to a printer. I ran the cleanup utilities as suggested. Now when I go through the install utility, it sees the printer, but comes up with a "Driver unavailable" error.
In devices and printers, if I right-click and select troubleshoot, it goes back the original message about it not being compatible with a USB 3 port. So basically, we have a vicious circle here. Finally got it to work by doing the manual add printer thing and choosing the DOT4 port and the HP universal driver.
I had actually tried this before without any success, so I am not sure what was different this time around. This whole thing was a major PITA. I also tried the PCL6 driver On the old system it still works, so the printer is OK. Would it be possible and how to see via the sysinternals procmon what is the problem? What do I have to look for to see the print job? Thanks Julio.
