I installed HP DESKJET F2480 last year to my Acer Laptop under Windows Vista operating system. It went well and had used all the applications from printing to scanning & to photocopying. This year, I’ve changed my operating system to Windows 7 and all applications to my laptop were deleted.
After installation of the new operating system, I installed my HP DESKJET F2480anAftd photocopying applications. The question is, what will I do to restore the same application of scanning thru my printer this time with Windows 7? and unfortunately, I can only use the printing d photocopying applications. The question is, what will I do to restore the same application of scanning thru my printer this time with Windows 7?
If you installed the driver for your printer on your Windows Vista using a setup CD and the same drivers and software no longer works on your computer after changing your operating system to Windows 7, this shouldn’t be a problem because you can always download the applications from the manufacturer’s website. First, uninstall all applications related to your printer currently installed on your computer.
Download the free version of Revo Uninstaller and install it. Once installed, start Revo Uninstaller then select your printer software among the applications and click “Uninstall”. Follow the normal uninstall process. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click to restart later. When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and delete everything it finds.
This removes everything the program created on your computer. When it is finished, close Revo Uninstaller then restart the computer. After booting, repeat the same steps to uninstall other programs associated with your printer. When all printer-related applications are removed, open your web browser and go to HP Deskjet F2480 All-in-One Printer. Download and install all drivers and software for your printer.
Before downloading, make sure your correct operating system is selected. If you see a different operating system displayed on the page, click “Change” then select your correct operating system. This should fix the problem.
