Hi,
HP 2510 Photosmart printer will not work with XP PC.  Tried to install software via internet and the install stopped.  Tried to install software from CD and not all the software installed.  Had printer disconnected during software install.  Please advise.
Thanks,
Joe

did you get any errors during the installation from the cd?  if not, how do you know that some of the software failed to install?

also, have you tried just installing the print driver itself, and not all the bloatware that HP includes with the full printer software package?

Are you getting any error messages at all?
I'm assuming that you have rights on the system to install software.
You may want to look in Add/Remove programs. If the printer software is listed, try to uninstall it, reboot and try your CD load again.

How would I just install the print driver. Did not get any errors.
