I am attempting to install an HP Laserjet 1320 pcl 6 printer, connecting to the pc using a USB
cable, the PC is running Windows XP.
When I launch the installation program from the CD and begin the driver installation, I get a
Windows error message which reads:
Cannot Install this Hardware
There was a problem installing this hardware:
hp LaserJet 1320 PCL 6
An error occurred during the installation of this device
The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable
I get the same error message when I use the drivers downloaded from the HP website.
I have deleted the printer from Device Manager, but when reinstalling it, I get the same error.
If I connect the PC to another printer on our network (another HP 1320) and install it as a network printer, then the installation appears fine. But when trying to print, I get an error
message which states:
Windows cannot print due to a problem with the current printer setup. Try one or more of the following:
*Check the printer by printing a test page from windows
*Make sure the printer is turned on and online
*Reinstall the printer driver
