Desk670C Install

I've just installed the latest Hp Deskjet670C driver (dj516en.exe from HP website)

Now every time I restart my PC it says it has found new hardware (DJ670C) and looks for the drivers which it can't find.

The printer works ok.

How can I tell the PC not to look for the drivers as they are already installed (via the HP setup program). My PC is running W98

I've actually solved the problem by using the HP660 drivers but would still be intersted in your response.

I'd try a few things:

1) WindowsUpdate to get fixes and patches

2) Reboot in SAFE MODE and check Device Managers for any problems, such as unknown devices, ghost ports, more than one valid item (remove all duplicates and errors in multiple) any found, remove errors and reboot to get the Add Hardware process going and reinstall pertinent drivers

3) Make sure that if you only have one printer, you say it is your DEFAULT printer

4) Check your printer manual to make sure the LPT port is correct and the right settings in your BIOS for that port (ECP or SPP or EPP, or whatever it should be).

More if needed.

This shows current driver updates

Prior to updating the driver, did you remove the prior printer and any related software first and reboot?  Recommended.

Need to close this question off. Client has changed printer anyway.
