Hi Lina,

Is this a new printer? Are you using the latest driver? Are you using XP drivers?

It'd help if you posted the printer model.

Good Vibes!

Hi Lina,

Thanks for the points. If the printer runs well it would seem the message has to do with the printer diagnostics software. Check in your Control Panel under Add/Remove Software and see if you can uninstall the HP software without removing the drivers.

Good Vibes!
