I upgraded my HP Pavilion 8370 to XP and now my 990Cxi printer doesn't work.
I recall reading something about a bios change that will correct problem. HP
doesn't support XP on these old computers so no luck with HP.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Carey,

I reviewed these two URLs and didn't find anything to address my problem.
Was there something specific on these two sites that you intended for me to
look for? I loaded the software from the CD that came with the printer. I
performed a computer check a the one URL you gave and it said my drivers are
current.

I recall needing to make a bios change to get the printer to work with the
8370 bios. Is there information about the bios change on the web sites you
provided?

Thanks.

I am pretty sure there was a KB at MS on this at one time. I can't find it
now. Here are some others with the same type of issue.
