    Hello Friend

    connect the internet to your system

    Now you will open the Google chrome

    In that type the File hippo.com

    In that select the software

    Now you will click the download option.

    It takes some time to download

    And finally go to the set up button.

    click the finish button.

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say..................................

    1.The Cd from which you are trying to install the printer driver may be corrupted.

    2.Or the CD may have the scratches which is not allowing your install the drivers.

    3.So to solve this problem you open any of your browser.

    4.And then you go to the official website of those printer drivers.

    5.And then you download them and then install them.

    All the best...............................

    Dear Friend...

    There are still a question arise with Mac OS that what it can support or what it can't and same questions arise with your problem.

    It might be possible that the drivers you are trying to install is not set with Mac OS parameters and in that case, you may contact with your either HP Service Center or Apple because it might be possible that the OS you are using is not compatible with the printer drivers or the drivers are compatible with any other version of Mac OS.

    So, first you read the manual which comes with your printer and if it says that the drivers are supported with your current version of Mac OS, the its fine and you can install but even after that, the problem is still same, then you must talk with Apple Care Executive and ask for the solution.

    I hope you are clear with the information.
    Thank you...

    Hello........

    The problem your facing here is because of the incompatibility of printer drivers with Mac.

    you need to have the drivers which are compatible with Mac OS.

    So go to HP official site and download the printer drivers available for Mac.

    then install the drivers in the Mac device.

    After successful installation of drivers, restart the device.

    If still the problem exists, then contact the Apple Care Executive for a solution.


    Thank You...
