DesignJet 600 Plotter connected to Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Will it work? HP says sales will not work.

I have an old Designjet 600 Plotter (model C2848A).  I have it connected to several new computers over the years with great success (using different OS, Win 95, 98, etc.  It still works very well with windows XP.  Now, I have three new stations using Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.  Sales of HP told me this plotter will no longer work with Windows 7 (and want to sell me a new tracer).  I find that hard to believe.  Does anyone have experience with this?  I was going to try to buy a 36 parallel PIN to USB connection and just plug in on my new PC.  But HP said that it does not work so I have not tried.  I guess I would need a driver to work properly.  Any suggestions?

For 64-bit systems, you can Download the XP x 64 drivers from here, then unzip the files into a new folder.  Then go to the file devices and printers, add a printer, select the appropriate port, and then select "Have disc" and point to the folder where you unzipped the files.

USB to parallel converters can be problematic.  If you get a course it is supported on Windows 7 x 64.  The models in the posts here have been identified to work with W7 x 64

I don't know if the Designjet 600 has a slot for an optional jetdirect card, if so it might be a better option.  I picked up a jetdirect card suitable for my Designjet 650 c on eBay for less than $15 (shipping included) and have it running on the network here.

This forum focuses on the level of consumer products.  For the Designjet you can have better results, post in the forum HP Designjet here, the real coup Designjet experts out there.

Next step is to create a disk to repair windows, Dell did not provide a when the computer was purchased. Can work from any vista repair disc, or I need to find one suitable for my windows edition?

  • Windows 7 Ultimate Service Pack 1 (64-bit) will not download completely stuck at 95%

    I tried to install Service Pack 1 of Windows today on my laptop.  On one of my laptops with Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit operating system Windows Update downloaded (with 4 other updates) in about an hour and installed successfully during the shut down and restart.

    However on my laptop main used with Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Service Pack 1 stops downloading (although he says he always download or seems to be) to 95%.  The first time that I tried to download with 3 other updates to Windows, and it stuck.  I finally stopped after about 7 hours with it stuck at 95%.  Isolated, the other downloads and downloaded and installed after the reboot and did it in less than 15 minutes.  Then began to try to download only the Service Pack 1.  It has now been underway for six hours and is still stuck on download of 95%.

    Another forum on the web had a message that the Service Pack 1 with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit will not download if you have installed language packs.  (Those who took me about 3-4 days to install and download due to make them one at a time because as a group they would get hung up.)  So I hope that I did not remove the language packs to get this Service Pack 1 installed on this machine.  I hope that Microsoft would have tested on a computer in Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit with language packs installed but maybe not...


    I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. I GAVE TO MY VISTA NOW, I HAVE JUST AS MUCH TROUBLE I DID BEFORE.  ABSOLUTELY, NO DOWNLOAD FROM ANYWHERE.  I WOULD BE HAPPY TO RETURN TO XP.  DEE

    I feel for you Dolores it was extremely painful and tedious experience.  The final fix for my computer was going back to the origin by default with Windows Vista Home Premium on my computer.  Then load the software Windows 7 Ultimate.  Then the installation of updates about 100 + Windows which took place including Windows 7 SP 1.  All this has been done before loading another software (except Firefox and Chrome) on my computer.  I did it too before my security software loading, which – incidentally, roughly double the speed of downloads and other features of the computer.  Then after all the updates for Windows 7 has been done, I loaded with Microsoft Office Applications and its many updates.  After that I loaded my security software and checked for viruses.  Then rebuilt all the other features, software customization, etc. of this computer.  Literally, it took over a month to return to the same functionality that it had before the Windows 7 SP1 crashed the computer.  All I can say is thank God that I am religious about backing up files and folders, so I think I got about 95% of my files, folders, etc.

    Since the reconstruction, I didn't "major" problems with Windows 7, but I cringe when I update Windows 7 via their process of updating every Tuesday.  I also try to update not updates at the same time or too large sizes in the updates, even if it takes more time to do it this way.  I also reboot after each update whether necessary or not.  I run two registry cleaners different at least once a week, or even more often as since the failure of catostrophic SP 1 of the operating system.

    I will say this though, a lot of programs/software, I had that wouldn't work with Vista, all of a sudden work again with Windows 7.

    Good luck!

  • New installation on windows 7 pro 64-bit sees not connected wired Officejet 6500 E710a-f

    Hello!

    New installation of Windows 7 Pro 64 bit on a gigahertz 3.40 AMD Phenom II X 4 965 with 8 GB of ram. Printer drivers worked on the same bench while he was running as Windows 7 Pro 32-bit.
    After only install FF, AVG, and Acrobat (almost a clean install), downloaded the software HP Officejet full feature and pilot 2012-10-22, Version: 116,98, 28.8 M - OJ6500_E710n - z_1315.exe and tried to install the Officejet 6500 E710a f.

    The printer has a manually set static IP and can be ping from the host. Clean Windows Firewall is disabled and stopped.

    The web interface using the IP address of the printer comes with all the features works on FF.
    Network status shows connected with IP address, hostname and Mac.

    However, when installing the network audit is no ethernet connection. Even manually enter his public static IP address or hostname does not solve the problem.

    Try the USB, the same question option. I see in Device Manager under other devices HPOfficejet 6500 and 6500 HPOfficejet - Fax with a blue questionmark.
    (In the same "other devices" there are 2 Officejet 6500 with a yellow exclamation point - probably from failed network installation).

    In the printers and devices window, the 6500 is displayed with the correct thumbnail, but with a yellow exclamation point icon. Law and by selecting the convenience store, Windows comes up with the message that no driver is installed and offers a solution.  The correction ends with the error that no drivers not found for the FAX. Re-apply the patch never finds the driver.

    Anyone who has met something similar (and a solution)?

    Thanks for any help!

    Jack

    After trying to do an install clean-install of 100% and once again, the driver software could not find the printer name or IP address.
    Back at each stage, I noticed that I was not using the correct driver! For some reason I D/L the pilot E710n which is for HP Officejet 6500 a Plus e-All-in-One.
    Whatever the difference, when installing the E710n for the model does not detect the printer, or via USB or Ethernet.
    After you download the right driver for the E710a - f HP Officejet 6500 a e-All-in-One Printer (OJ6500_E710a - f_1315.exe) installation perfectly finished in a few minutes and everything goes well...

    You would think, base or USB connectivity network should not be dependent on the specific differences sub-model. I was expecting that a bad driver interrogate the device after finding its IP address and display an error message with useful text.

  • How can I get Windows 7 Pro 32 bit automatically connect to drives mapped to the startup?

    How can I get Windows 7 Pro 32 bit automatically connect to drives mapped to the startup?

    Hello

    It should connect as much as the other computers with their car are on the account users are properly configured, security passwords are defined and firewall do not block.

    If the system is only yours and there is no need of local network security, enable the guest account on all computers, give them all the permissions and there will be less to worry about connection mapped, but local drive without security.

    PS Ce preceding is based on cable connections. If the connections are wireless, it's another story.

    Due to the maturity of the wireless adapter and their support through the OS, automatic connection could not occur.

    Wireless is great, but most of us try to sneak out of it the uses it was not designed for.

    After a Windows 10 update, my printer will not touchpad analyze. It will scan the troubleshooting utility. I unplugged and reset without success. I have updated to the latest version of the HP software for the printer. What else can I try?

    Hello

    You can try to install from the link here:

    Before installing the HP software above, please uninstall your previous version first.

    During installation, select the type of standard or recommended installation when you are prompted by the installation software. If you choose a minimum installation, read the description of each component software with caution to avoid the unintentional loss of functionality of the printer.

  • HP Photosmart 3210 will not install on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.

    HP Photosmart 3210 will not install on a brand new desktop running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.  I downloaded the latest software, and when I run it, the installation window disappears shortly after it starts.  No error message.  I ran into several related issues lately.  I can't install a ScanJet 5590 on a new laptop running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit.  Said it ends, but nothing is installed.   Could the fact that there are other HP printers installed on these computers (network printers) installed using driver only before attempting to install the software cause problems?  I spent hours trying to solve these.

    OK, much better progress!

    If the software is always installed, tell him you'll connect later.

    Go to devices and printers, look for the printer here, make sure you that no documents waiting to print and delete the printer if it is there.

    Then go into Device Manager and remove all photosmart series 3200 drivers you find, you may need to click displays hidden on the view menu.

    Thirdly, go back to the devices and printers. Select another printer, as the writer XPS comes with Windows. Along the top, with adding a device, add a printer, print server, you will see properties. What to choose and go to the tab drivers. If you have the HP drivers in there you do not, select them and choose delete and "delete the driver only."

    Now restart and go to your Start menu and your HP folder. You must have installed the software, just no device driver, select "add a device" or "printer setup and software." Installation should complete without problem.

    One last thing, you must temporarily turn off firewall and antivirus installation, in which case he mistakingly tries to block the attempt to install.

    Good impression!

  • Cannot get Windows XP Home Edition for a mapped network drive / share on a computer of Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

    I constantly tried to use the "NET USE" syntax to get a Windows XP Home system to keep & share mapped network drive on a Windows 7 Pro 64-bit of the system and nothing I tried or worked on ANY blog. I can map the current network through made normal drive right click on 'My computer' and then provide a designation of drive letter with the correct path and have had great success using the function "connect using a different user name." However, even with the box checked to re-connect to the opening of the service is WORTHLESS! I made a lot of attempts to use the Net use syntax to create a batch file to overcome this non-functional raw application. I would really appreciate someone who actually had this issue resolved and work. I have looked at all the Windows files on the XP machine, searched the registry about a possible switch, which could make the necessary changes and have made all necessary changes on the Windows 7 system to accept the mapped network share.

    Hello

    Since you have a network with different OS' I hope that Win 7 is configured to run on asnetwork work.

    If evry thing is configured properly it can be a problem of how your router keep information network. With the help of Staic DHCP or IP static on computers could help solve the problem.

    Just in case you need to reconfigure your network.

    ---------------

    Win7 when configured on the peer-to-peer network has three types of configurations of sharing.

    Group residential network = only works between Win 7 computers. This type of configuration, it is very easy to entry level users to start sharing network.

    Working network = fundamentally similar to previous methods of sharing that allow you to control what, how and to whom the records would be shared with.

    Public share
    = network Public (as Internet Café) in order to reduce security risks.

    For the best newspaper of the results of each computer screen system and together all computers on a network of the same name, while each computer has its own unique name.

    Make sure that the software firewall on each computer allows free local traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall on, Vista/XP Firewall Native should be disabled, and the active firewall has adjusted to your network numbers IP on what is sometimes called the Zone of confidence (see part 3 firewall instructions

    General example, http://www.ezlan.net/faq#trusted
    Please note that some 3rd party software firewall continue to block the same aspects it traffic Local, they are turned Off (disabled). If possible, configure the firewall correctly or completely uninstall to allow a clean flow of local network traffic. If the 3rd party software is uninstalled, or disables, make sure Windows native firewall isactive .

    Since you have a network with Win 7 and the other version of Windows, you must configure Windows 7 as work network.

    In the center of the network, by clicking on the type of network opens the window to the right.

    Choose your network type. Note the check box at the bottom and check/uncheck depending on your needs.

  • Intermittent USB mouse freeze on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. Tested with several mice that work fine on other computers.

    I am having a frustrating problem where my Wired Optical mouse appears to 'freeze' for 10 seconds on my machine Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. Meanwhile, everything else on the computer works fine, including the keyboard (connected through PS2). The mouse does not seem to lose power because down the red LED stays on. At the end of the freeze period, I hear the sound of Windows to disconnect USB, but there is no error or windows pop-up ads of any kind on the screen.

    Some more info about the configuration:

    * Core i7 950 processor
    * 12 GB of RAM
    * Radeon HD4950 video card (or almost)
    * The main SSD drive
    * 2 external powered USB drives, 1 powered MIDI keyboard, 1 USB dongle
    * Windows experience score 7.3

    I tried things that did not work:

    • Turn off all the power management, including the management of power supply for USB, USB hubs-> suspend to win power, etc.
    • Permutation of mouse. The problem came with three different mouse from different manufacturers.
    • Try the mouse on different computers of W7 Pro. Confirmed that the mice are not the problem.
    • Disconnected all other USB devices except the mouse. Problem persists.
    • Uninstalled all the drivers for the mouse and use MS default drivers.
    • Installed the software Microsoft mouse & keyboard center.
    • Installed the software from the manufacturer (ie. logitech) specific mouse driver.
    • Tried every USB port, the front and back, on my computer, including USB3 vs USB2.
    • Scanned for malware (using Malwarebytes)
    • Search for viruses (using Nod32)

    I must point out that NO other devices are having problems on this computer. My external hard drives all work perfectly. My printer when I plug it, works great, like my USB dongle. My MIDI keyboard never loses connection. Even when I have my phone connected Android, which normally creates a huge noise if I unplug it, never disconnects even for a second. It is therefore clearly a kind of mouse problem.

    The problem seems to occur regardless of what I do, although it seems MORE common if I use actually the mouse. If I'm just typing (as I am now) it seems not really to happen. On the other hand, sometimes hours go with no problem and other time it happens literally every few seconds.

    Remove the check to "improve the accuracy of the printer" logic. I had two computers windows 7 x 64 that gives me the same problem. When I tried a wireless mouse, the problem disappeared. they do not use the windows controls.

    If previous retail Windows 7 clean install provided drivers I needed, the OEM 7 would also provide them (for the same devices)?

    Not necessarily, because you may have been using Dell recovery media which has been customized by Dell and injected with drivers specific for your model Dell computer at the factory.

    About network drivers for all three machines currently running Windows 7, but do not activate or allow changes (bad copy needed to recover from 10 Windows could not upgrade).

    1. I have a Dell Dimension E521, currently using

    According to the Dells, the latest drivers that they have is for Windows Vista, you can use.

    Its most likely the Windows 7 installation media will have the class drivers appropriate for at least your Broadcom, which you can use to connect to the Internet and update via Windows Update.

    Still download important factors in advance to have at least a working system:

    Which architecture of Windows 7 are install you, 32 bit or 64 bit?

    Broadcom 440 x 10 100 embedded controller v4.60.0.1 (bcm4sbxp.sys) digitally signed by Microsoft, I think that the previous clean install of Windows 7 at retail.

    1.a. I copied from my Dell Windows 7 PC existing (bcm4sbxp.sys) to my network.

    1.b.  Dell offers no support for this model using Windows 7.

    1.c. downloaded from Broadcom 4401 for XP Vista & as: bcm4sbxp.sys, b44win.inf, b44win.cat; that seems to be what I use for Windows 7, but these files are not executable (s) then how would a re-install?

    2 gateway 9310 S (Marvell 88E8050 PCI-E ASF Gigabit Ethernet Controller Yuknon {which seems to be signed by Microsoft of the previous clean install of windows 7})

    2.a. Bridge existing as yk62x86.dll & yk62x86.sys PC

    2.b.  Downloaded from Marvell under Win7 Server 2008-R2 32-bit - 11.45.4.3.zip.

    2.c. Zip includes; yk62x86.sys, yk62x86.inf, yk62x86.cat; that seems to be what I currently have for Windows 7, but none of the files are executable, so, how would I install the driver?

    (3 acer Aspire M5100 (Marvell Yukon 8858056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet {which seems to be signed by Microsoft of the previous clean install of windows 7}))

    3.a. On Acer PC existing as yk62x86.dll & yk62x86.sys (same as walkway above)

    1. downloaded from Marvell under Win7 Server 2008-R2 32-bit - 11.45.4.3.zip.

    Even download accurate to Marvell for Acer and Gateway
