HP Officejet 4500g-m Windows 7 64-bit Install

July 8, 2011

Working on a client I scoured the Internet and found this printer was a giant piece of crap with terrible support. However here’s how I got the software to install.

Note: Antivirus was uninstalled and the printer was unplugged from the beginning.

On HP’s support website make sure you  get the Officejet 4500 All-in-One Printer – G510g and select the correct version of your operating system for 64 bit, in this case it was home premium.

Download the full software suite, let it extract and let it crash. When Windows pops up asking you if you want to let it install with recommended settings, do it. This actually worked.  I was able to get through the setup without any problems. Hopes this helps those going through hell with this printer.

I normally wouldn’t say this about a Windows-based operating system, but I’m actually enjoying using Windows 7. There’s something very pleasant about the operating system overall that both OS X and KDE have. It’s a calm blend that happens whenever you leave your computer alone and take a close look at it…

A long time ago, I came upon Groove Salad, an Internet radio station that plays all sorts of odd music, but is oddly perfect while using your computer, or blogging for that matter. I occasionally capture the names of some songs and go back and listen to them later. Here is one of the funky ones, be sure to listen while chilling out and drinking herbal tea.

I’m guessing it has been noticed by now we’ve slowed down considerably. What happened? Well what was the major reason we ground to a halt last time… Oh that’s right, Evan’s computer broke. It appears he’s having for REAL hard drive issues this time. We shall see how things turn out. Anyway, here’s a two-for post for you.

Fur Elise and Tetris Remix

January 17, 2009

A truly awesome mix of Fur Elise and the Tetris song we all know in love. If you know both songs, like me, the transitions between the two will blow you away. It’s an older video, but it still rocks.

Also, I’ve been busy since I’ve been back at college but I started working with Game Maker again tonight. No idea when the next update will be, but it shouldn’t be too far off.

So you’ve heard that it’s happening and you’re quite sure it has promise. Well, that’s nice, but it’s time for you to get a real look into what Windows 7 is all about. I’ve made an almost thorough video of the features of Windows 7 and why it still leaves a bad taste in your mouth, sort of.

So if you’d like to look before you buy… or… whatever you plan on doing to obtain it. Read on.
