I am considering changing from win me to xp but the driver for my printer needs to be changed. should I down looad new driver before loading new system or after or does it not matter?

Doesn't matter because you can't install them until AFTER you have installed Win XP.

Only if you need your printer quickly.

Oh but best to check it does actually have Win XP drivers and you're not going to be left Printer-less (a new friend for Powerless, perhaps??)

XP will load default driver which should give you limited functionality - i.e. it will print but not double sided etc.

You can then go to HP website and download drivers.

However, check what drivers are available first as if its an "old" printer, XP drivers may not be available.

NORFOLK SPARKY - download whever you feel like.

I would however make sure you get your modems drivers sorted BEFORE you upgrade cos then you might be able to download ANYTHING!!

it's a bjc-6200 with a scaning cartridge and seperate ink tanks which is why i would be loath to lose it even if its about 4 years old
