    How do I get HP Oj Pro 8500A to print with 8.1 on my Lenov


    I recently installed 8.1 on my new Lenovo. I added the HP printer control app; however, when I attempted to print, I got a "printer offline message." Not sure what is happening, because I installed 8.1 on my HP Pavilion and my Home desktop and I am able to print wireless and wired without a problem.

    Look in device manager and see if the driver installed correctly.
