    Did u follow factory install instructions?
    Did you use factory install CD? Did u interrupt installation CD during install process?
    Was printer connected via USB before install or after install?
    Is your system 32 or 64 bit?

    Click Start -> Devices & Printers ->
    Right click any icon labeled HP 400 -> Select Remove Device
    Click Control Panel -> Programs & Features -> Uninstall any HP related applications listed here
    That is Uninstall and not "Delete"

    Click My Computer -> C Drive ->Program Files Folder
    Delete any residual HP folders (Right Click any HP folder & select "Delete")
    Click My Computer -> C Drive ->Program Data Folder
    Delete any residual HP folder

    Follow Factory Install Instructions
    Remove USB cable
    Run Installation Cd (Careful not to interrupt)
    Connect USB cable

    Verify following:
    Click Start -> Devices & Printers
    You should now see HP400 icon with green check mark
    Do nothing but return to desktop

    Printer should now function normally
    Please answer all questions and advise
