PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Windows ME
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:



I just got my computer back from a checkup (and they had to reinstall Windows ME),it just wasn't booting up at all....and when I got it back the technician said it was fixed and purring like a kitten...that is until I got my hands on it again!  I keep getting a message that says:  unable to start driver for hpoid 407.exe (hpoid 407.exe).  And it still freezes all the time.  I plan to contact the repair people but I would like to know what it all means and why it is happening.  Any ideas?  It is 4 years old...maybe it is time to put it out to pasture!!  I don't have money to throw away but this machine is causing me a lot of stress!

Hi G,
The hpoid is a printer driver.This should not freeze your computer.What does freeze a computer is usually a heat issue or a bad power supply.Sometimes a hardware or software issue will freeze it also.I would take it back & let them fix it since you've paid them.
You can open up the computer & see if they cleaned out the dust & animal dander(if you have pets),especially on the cpu fan & power supply fan.The people who repaired your computer should have done this as part of the repair.
Take care.

Dear Sj1184:

Thank you for your response to my problem and for letting me know what hpoid referred to.  I had actually just reinstalled my printer.  Now, knowing that the driver refers to my printer, I have uninstalled it and will now download the installation from the HP website..as per their recommendations...as the chap said..."in case your disk is corrupt".

I am quite sure that the repairman did clean my fans, etc.  My CPU sits directly on the floor...maybe I should buy one of those little stands instead...maybe being on the floor makes it run "hot".  

Anyhow...this is a wonderful site.  It's great to be able to submit a problem and get an answer.  Thank you so much!

You're welcome G.Smiley
It's best to have your computer at least a foot off the floor.The higher,the better.
Take care.Cool

My computer says the hpoid407.exe unable to run  or start driver have reinstalled it but it still comes up the same.  Then installed it on the laptop and it does the same thing with the retp warning staying on the screen.  I downloaded the files from hp but they did the same thing?  I deleted all the printer files and now bought a hp 3500 to see if it will run on the laptop.  It does but the hpoid407.exe still comes up on it although the new printer works?  On the desk top it backs out of the new printer file and says to run it again?

Hi Mr F,
As long as the the printer is working,lets try & get rid of the "hpoid407.exe" message.Click start>run,key in "msconfig" without the quotes.When the configuration window opens,click "startup" at the top.See if "hpoid407.exe" id listed.If it is,uncheck it.Click apply,then ok & restart the computer.
Take care.

I'm having problems setting up my hp psc 750 printer. I receive this error hpoid407.exe, because my source CD won't completely run. It stops running at 94%, stating that it has, and to continue to the next step. How can I get my source CD to run completely? I'm running Windows 98SE.

Greetings Everyone:

This is Espetus following-up on my last post regarding the trouble I'm having setting up my hp psc 750 printer. I have received this RTL error before, stating that hpoid407.exe, can't be ran. In the past I have found a way to run my printer, but not this time. My Source CD won't completely run, it stops at 94%. How can I get my source CD to run 100%?
Does anyone have software that I can download? Please help.

If I was you, I'd contact HP directly and see if they know a way to tackle this problem.

It's entirely possible that you have to completely uninstall the printer software, and I mean all of it, before trying a reinstall. But don't do anything rash until you've had a word with the HP tech department.
