Back to HP forum 4 total posts. Why can’t you uninstall it beforehand? I am using a mono laser printer HP which I’ve had for years and it is still working so 500c keep persevering with it.

The HP website has instructions that are not clear to me.

If you have an extra WinXP license you are not using you could dual boot. If you’re asking for technical 510c, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem.
