HP installation problems come standard
As I installed (and when I reinstalled after uninstalling!!!!) the driver for the officejet to replace the 6310xi that suddenly stopped working...argh...each time I get to a "fatal error" message just about at 94 or 96% installed.
As a result, although for some reason I'm able to print with a direct USB connection, the idea of this purchase was to get a wireless all-in-one for our Qwest router network. BestBuy's Geek desk tried to be helpful...they've even shared secrets that the Squad members have learned in their adventures in the great unknown of homes and offices.
Ultimately, however, since it's apparent the network is fnctioning well for internet connection, the final suggestion has been to get a Geek Squad appointment. So, in addition to $180 with tax for the MFC, I'm gonna need to 'virtually' double the investment?
I'll try another installation using the ethernet option. I suppose before returning the printer I'll even consider if there's a possibility that I might want to quit fighting while I'm ahead.
But I'm starting to wonder if a $300 investment is needed, maybe I'll run with either a basic laser in addition or go for a more expensive all-in-one. In any case, it doesn't seem that any of the manufacturers give a damn about their supplied programing and loss of goodwill.
I sympathize and empathize with everyone else out there having trouble with software installation virtual incompatibility with Vista!
