Original Software/Drivers
Caution: The printer's USB cable must be unplugged before proceeding! Do not plug in the USB cable until instructed to do so below!

Note: The printer must be powered on before proceeding.

  1. Create a new folder on the hard drive before downloading the printer driver.
      Suggestion: c:\dj5100
  2. Download the driver to the newly created c:\dj5100 folder.
  3. Open the c:\dj5100 folder and double-click the downloaded exe file to extract the driver files.
      Note: The driver file extraction process will create a series of folders under the c:\dj5100 folder that you downloaded the driver file into. Under the C:\dj5100\5100 folder, a three letter language folder will be displayed which corresponds with the driver language that you downloaded. For example, the English driver (5100_enu_win2k_xpinfu.exe) contains a folder named enu. This folder was created during the extraction process after double-clicking on the downloaded exe file.
  4. Connect the USB cable from the PC to the printer.
  5. If a Hardware Wizard screen appears, click Cancel.
      Note: If the Hardware wizard does not appear, continue to the next step.
  6. From Windows, click Start, Settings, Printers.
  7. Next, click Add Printer.
  8. When the Add Printer Wizard screen appears, click Next.
  9. Choose Local Printer, uncheck Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer, and click Next.
  10. Select Port USB and click Next.
  11. In the next window, click the Have Disk button.
      Note: For the next step, the three letters in the filename (such as enu in the following example) will correspond to the language code of the downloaded driver as explained in step 4.
  12. Click Browse and go to the folder c:\dj5100\5100\enu\drivers\Win2k_xp. A file, with a filename similar to hpf5100k.inf, will be displayed. Select the file and click Open or OK.
  13. Click OK to continue. HP Deskjet 5100 series will now be found in the Printers column. Click Next.
      Note: If another 5100 series driver is already installed on this PC, you will be shown a window asking you to decide if you want to keep or replace the existing driver. Make your selection and click Next
  14. Click Next to accept the default printer name (suggested), or rename the printer and click Next.
  15. Select Yes or No to print a test page and click Next.
  16. To complete the installation process, click Finish. The printer driver files will now be installed and the HP Deskjet 5600 series icon will be added to the Printers folder.
