    My printer won't print on my Win8 Laptop but on my Win7


    Hello. I have an HP OfficeJet All-In-One V40 Printer, and I'm not sure why but I will print out pages perfectly on my Windows 7 Laptop, but not on my Windows 8 64bit Laptop. It either prints out part of the page or none of it and the printer ends up in an error state. Can someone help me fix this issue?

    Let Windows try to find the best driver using the following guide:

    Setup & Install for HP Officejet v40 All-in-One Printer series - HP Support Center

    Failing that install the latest driver, preferably Win 7 driver, in compatibility mode.

    I agree with Nuccii, let Windows find the driver for you. It might be beneficial to "remove" any other printers that are installed first.
