  • I can not download the driver to my laptop for my two year old HP printer.it will download only to about 3% and then says it is timed out When I put the printer CD in to run it, it says something about the administrator account. When I go to that I can not change it to standard account it says change account but it is not highlighted and I have tried all the online help
    Does anyone know how I can change this
