    This printer was mistakenly deleted from my XP system. HP's Website leads me in endless circle, as if they've blotted XP from their memory. Where can I get that driver now?

    Thanks. Downloaded OK and will transfer to the XP machine in the AM (gotta find an empty thumb drive).

    Search engines were not my friend in this case--they kept leading me to irrelevant or useless sites. How did you structure your query?

    That site got me the following file:

    DJ_SF_03_D4300_NonNet_Full_Win_WW_130_140.exe

    But it is for Win 7, not XP. Maybe, even though I asked for an XP driver, the system detected that I was online from a Win 7 machine.

    Lots of 3d-party sites claim to have the driver--but I'm reluctant to use sites I never heard of. You know any I can trust?

    P.S. Reason I did not search for the driver from the XP machine is that it's gotten agonizingly slow.

    above is my one drive, I am downloading the file, 85 MB now ( I am on xp) and will upload it to my onedrive and then you can download it from there with your win 7 pc, to a flash drive and install on your xp pc.

    in a second reply I will post instructions on cleaning up your pc.

    it will be in my public folder " dell drivers" / d4300 printer folder.

    Advice from Shenan Stanley:

    Probably will want to clean up that machine...

    Check for malware:
    Download, install, run, update and perform full system scans with the following two applications:

    Malwarebytes (MBAM): http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/


    Removing everything they find. Rebooting when needed. (You can uninstall one or both when done.)
    Then perform an online scan with the eSet Online Scanner.

    The less you have running all the time, the better the things you want to run will perform:

    Use Autoruns to figure out what all is starting up when your computer does/when you log on. Look up anything you do not know about usingGoogle (and/or ask here.) You can hopefully figure out if there are things starting when you computer does (or you logon) that you do not need and then configure them (via their own built-in mechanisms is the preferred method) so they do not start up - using your resources without reason.
    You can download and utilize Process Explorer to see exactly what is taking up your processor/CPU time and memory. This can help you recognize applications you might want to look into alternatives for and/or get rid of all together.

    Do some house cleaning and dust off that hard drive:

    You may wish to free up some disk space (will also aid in getting rid of things you do not utilize) by going through these steps:

    Windows XP should take between 4.5 and 9GB *with* an Office suite, Photo Editing software, alternative Internet browser(s), various Internet plugins and a host of other things installed.

    If you are comfortable with the stability of your system, you can delete the uninstall files for the patches that Windows XP has installed...

    http://www3.telus.net/dandemar/spack.htm

    ( Particularly of interest here - #4 )

    ( Alternative: http://www.dougknox.com/xp/utils/xp_hotfix_backup.htm )

    You can run Disk Cleanup - built into Windows XP - to erase all but your latest restore point and cleanup even more "loose files"..

    How to use Disk Cleanup
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310312

    You can turn off hibernation if it is on and you don't use it..

    When you hibernate your computer, Windows saves the contents of the system's memory to the hiberfil.sys file. As a result, the size of the hiberfil.sys file will always equal the amount of physical memory in your system. If you don't use the hibernate feature and want to recapture the space that Windows uses for the hiberfil.sys file, perform the following steps:

    - Start the Control Panel Power Options applet (go to Start, Settings, Control Panel, and click Power Options).
    -
    - Select the Hibernate tab, clear the "Enable hibernation" check box, then click OK; although you might think otherwise, selecting Never under the "System hibernates" option on the Power Schemes tab doesn't delete the hiberfil.sys file.
    -
    - Windows will remove the "System hibernates" option from the Power Schemes tab and delete the hiberfil.sys file.

    You can control how much space your System Restore can use...

    1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

    2. Click the System Restore tab.

    3. Highlight one of your drives (or C: if you only have one) and click on the "Settings" button.

    4. Change the percentage of disk space you wish to allow.. I suggest moving the slider until you have just about 1GB (1024MB or close to that...)

    5. Click OK.. Then Click OK again.

    You can control how much space your Temporary Internet Files can utilize...

    Empty your Temporary Internet Files and shrink the size it stores to a size between 64MB and 128MB..

    - Open ONE copy of Internet Explorer.
    - Select TOOLS - Internet Options.
    - Under the General tab in the "Temporary Internet Files" section, do the following:
    - Click on "Delete Cookies" (click OK)
    - Click on "Settings" and change the "Amount of disk space to use:" to something between 64MB and 128MB. (It may be MUCH larger right now.)
    - Click OK.
    - Click on "Delete Files" and select to "Delete all offline contents" (the checkbox) and click OK. (If you had a LOT, this could take 2-10 minutes or more.)
    - Once it is done, click OK, close Internet Explorer, re-open Internet Explorer.
    -
    You can use an application that scans your system for log files and temporary files and use that to get rid of those:

    Ccleaner (Free!)
    http://www.ccleaner.com/

    ( just the disk cleanup - don't play with the registry part for now )
    Other ways to free up space..

    SequoiaView
    http://www.win.tue.nl/sequoiaview/

    JDiskReport
    http://www.jgoodies.com/freeware/jdiskreport/

    Those can help you visually discover where all the space is being used. Then you can determine what to do.
    After that - you will want to check for any physical errors and arrange everything for efficient access"

    Shenan, I've tried a couple of these fixes already, but will download and try the rest.

    Raising the RAM from 512 MB to 2 GB did speed things up. It's still a slug, but it's now a RACING slug.

    I think the problem is somewhere in the OS -- it takes about 7 minutes to boot up, even with the boost in RAM.

    use autoruns to clear your start up, the only thing you really need on startup is your antivirus.

    I do not know why you cannot get to onedrive, unless you need to have a microsoft account

    http://www.gcflearnfree.org/microsoftaccount/2.2

    do not know how else to get these downloads to you unless you can speed up your xp pc. and download them your self??

    my firefox browser on xpsp3 can get to my onedrive and it shows an empty folder until I sign in.

    Elizabeth, when I click on the link you posted, this time I got:

    Your OneDrive or Profile might be temporarily blocked because it has been experiencing an unusually large volume of traffic. In this case, the block will be removed after 24 hours.

    It might also have been taken offline for suspicious activity or a violation of the Microsoft Services Agreement or code of conduct. If you believe this is not the case, request a review of the problem by contacting customer support. However, if customer support finds content which is in violation, then you'll need to remove all violating content within 48 hours or your account will be shut down.

    Thanks!

    Got it.

    Now I have two things to do -- install the drivers and do the other fixups on the XP machine...and learn how to work with OneDrive.
