Windows 7 upgrade

I just upgraded from XP to 7 on my desktop. Now my laptop will not print on my HP Photosmart 3200 all in one.

Thanks, CMW

  1. Open Control Panel and select Devices and Printers. Is there a "check mark" on your HP printer? If not, right-click it and select "Set as default printer". Hopefully, that will solve it.

    Hello CMW_55,

    Choose your printer model from the HP website, here: http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_pagetype=s-002&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&cc=us&submit=Go+%BB&h_lang=en&h_cc=us&h_query=Hp+Photosmart+3200&x=10&y=1 and download the drivers you need.

  3. Hello CMW,

    Check out the Windows 7 Compatibility site: (There you will find out about hardware and software compatibilty.)
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/default.aspx
    There is a pulldown from which you can choose "hardware" and "software".
    There are also some great articles, instructional videos and such to help with your Windows 7 at our Springboard site:

    In any event a lot of the times, Vista drivers will work in lieu of Windows 7 drivers, however, it's not 100%!
    As stated previously, it's best to have the Windows 7 certified drivers installed.
    Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to check the threads available there for additional assitance and support.
