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.

A Few Things

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.

I’m really shocked by what  little mention on a website can do. As quickly as we fell under, we came soaring back up because of Evan’s one BBY at the airport post. To think that if he could get a mention here and there, we may actually have a popular blog on our hands. It seems that with blog popularity comes increased responsibility. If you want continued success there has to be a standard to which all posts must then conform. Maybe I should start sticking the address for this blog in random places. Or I should switch to quick posts,

“Here’s a cool video!”

Done.

Good Things Must End

January 10, 2009

I know that my writing tends to focus a lot on my work, most likely because it’s the most interesting thing I’ve got to write about that’s tame. I’m not saying I have many wild and crazy nights, but for the content of the blog, I’ve got to keep the audience broad.

I also think that hearing real inside stories about how a company is truly run is a great way to make change on a much bigger scale. If everyone has the same inside knowledge as the employees, the playing field is leveled, and a business would have trouble evolving into something like a monopoly. As long as one person understands why I keep writing these, I’ll feel good about it.

Onward with the tyranny…

Away From Home: Food

You know, I’ve seen a lot of movies and television about college life, and I’ve got to admit, there was a lot I was expecting coming in to college that just didn’t happen. When I first came to a university, so much ridiculous stuff happened, I probably should have been keeping a journal of some sort to keep record of all the extra stupid things. I am in my third year of college, so I think I’ve got some room to talk about how it has been.

An Addendum for Best Buy Express

December 31, 2008

If I would have known Evan had a remote interest in this I would have mentioned it forever ago, I’ve known about this for about a month or so.

Read the post below this one first.

I have a little explanation behind the prices in the vending machines. Most of the products featured in the machines are price protected products. Items from Apple and gaming manufacturers are normally price protected. This is why the items aren’t stupidly overpriced, as I’m sure BBY wants them to be.

Forget the +/- .50 cents Wal-Mart takes off, comes back in tax anyway.

This should have been a comment probably, but whatever.
