Installing HP Deskjet 6127 Printer on Windows Vista

Hi guys,

How can I get my HP Deskjet 6127 printer working on Windows Vista? I can't seem to find any drivers for it and I don't have the CD that came with the printer.

Thanks,

Jessica

Hi Jessica,

HP is not providing a Windows Vista driver for the HP Deskjet 6127 printer. But there is an alternative way to get the printer working on Windows Vista. Just follow these steps:

1. If your printer is connected to your computer, disconnect it.
2. Click on the Start menu.
3. Click on Control Panel
4. Click on the Hardware & Sounds control panel.
5. Click Printers.
6. Click "Add a Printer"
7. Click "Add a Local Printer"
8. Check off the "Use an existing port" check box.
9. In the list entitled "Use an existing port" choose "LPT1: (Printer Port)
10. Click on the "Next" button
11. Choose "HP" as the manufacturer from the list of manufacturers
12. In the printers list that shows up, choose "Deskjet 990c"
13. Click on the "Next" button
14. In the text box called "Printer name" type "Deskjet 6127"
15. Wait for the computer to say that the printer has been successfully added.
16. Connect your printer to your computer (i.e. connect the cable to the USB port at the back of your computer.
17. A "Found New Hardware" screen should show up. Click Cancel on this window. (if it keeps showing up, just keep on clicking cancel until no more windows pop up)
18. Go back to the printer folder (i.e. the one where you clicked "Add a Printer"
19. Right Click on "Deskjet 6127"
20. Click on "Properties" in the menu that popped up.
21. Select the "Ports" tab.
22. Change the port from "LPT1" to "USB"
23. Click on the "Apply" button.

And that's it! That should allow you to use your HP Deskjet 6127 printer in Windows Vista.

You might want to print out a test page just to make sure the printer works.

Eric.

In Vista add printer.
Use the original CD supplied with the printer
Choose XP, this will install the drivers.
When installed you can print, works also with a 6127 on a network.
succes

NB Do not use the setup from the install CD, this will NOT work. This will fail on the additional programms. Only install the driver itself for XP.
