Why can't I download ANY drivers?!

Hi,

I am a computer tech in many schools, and I am trying to download drivers for a laptop and a printer.

I've been trying this for a week now, but the download is either very slow (Less than 1KB/S) or timed out.

I am using all kind of browsers, and am truing this from every school, with different ISPs.

So tell me, are the HP servers even working?

Thanks.

Re: Why can't I download ANY drivers?!

Well, there are so many, all the drivers for the HP Compaq 6715b laptop, and drivers for the HP LaserJet CP1515n printer.

I sometimes get a time-out error from the FTP site of HP.

As I said, I'm experiencing this problem all over, and with different browsers.

Re: Why can't I download ANY drivers?!

if you are access ing from schools, perhaps they are using standard firewall rules, and they may be throttled. Can you not get them from home and take them with you?

Re: Why can't I download ANY drivers?!

There have been times when the HP servers were slow but I haven't had that happen in about a year. If you download from home you will most likely have to unblock the downloaded files. The windows firewall and some third party firewalls will block a file so that it won't execute correctly if at all until the file is unblocked. To unblock a file download to a known location I like the desktop. Right click the downloaded file and select properties on the window that comes up select the unblock button towards the button of the window and then the Apply button on the bottom right. Close the window and the downloaded file should execute or copy to other media to execute on another machine.

I can't d/l any of the links in the Software & Drivers section as well. :( It's been like this for a week now. I really need to update my DV5-1233se's softwares. But the file I really need now is the: Recovery Manager Installer Patch for Windows 7. Ever since I upgraded the OS (from Vista) my notebook has never been the same. So I need to revert back to Vista. Please help, anyone?

 

EDIT: Nevermind, I got it working. I just replaced the ftp:// to http and it worked. ^_^

I tried this but it is just sitting on my desk top saying processing please wait. So in other words it hasn't even downloaded enough for me to find it in my computer. I refreshed it several times. I closed it and started over but still have the same message.

I have no problems downloading it from your URL or from your ftp: URL.

I'm using firefox.

What Windows version are you using?  What browser version?

What errors did you get?
