Subscriber Wanda Armstrong wrote recently to ask for help in installing the driver software for her new photo printer:
I have a HP Photosmart 7760 printer. (NO disk) I found the program and driver file download at HP site. I am running XP Prof. I have tried multiple times to install the file and it sticks or hangs at 31% every time.

I love the redesign of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site — it makes article posting and maintenance much easier than before. I’m glad I switched to WordPress and the Genesis Theme Framework.
