Manual Installation Instructions:

Caution: The printer's cable (USB) must be unplugged before proceeding.

  1. Create a new folder on the hard drive: c:\dj845 before downloading the printer driver.
  2. Download the driver to the newly created c:\dj845 folder.
  3. Open the c:\dj845 folder and double-click the downloaded "exe" file.
  4. Dialog boxes indicating "Loading Files" and "Please Wait" will appear indicating files are being copied. Wait until the files are finished copying.
  5. Click "Install Printer Software"
    Note: If this screen is not present, check the taskbar for a minimized screen named "845c". Click on this item to activate this screen.
  6. Follow the instructions on the installer screen.
Note: There may be one or more printers installed. To verify the correct printer has been selected, do the following:
  1. Click on the Start Menu
  2. Click "Printers and Faxes"
  3. Verify that the "hp deskjet 845c series" is present.
