why does my computer constantly lose printer info?

ilmbgJuly 19, 2012

I have an older HP 1600 printer- that works fine...except my computer constantly 'loses' the information that I have a printer- very frustrating!!

I have to reinstall the printer about every-other time I use it.

What do I do?! Thanks

it is possible there are newer drivers that have been issued for the printer I would go to the manufacturers site and look up your model number to see if any newer drivers might be listed if so grab that and try it.
