After installing Windows 10 my HP Deskjet 2050 printer is not working. The driver has been re-installed, I have replaced the HP cartridges. The printer stops printing halfway through the page. I have also disconnected and re connected in case that helps.

After installing Windows 10, and re-installing the software, since the printer does not work properly, try the following steps:1. Uninstall all HP printer software.2. Unplug the printer USB cable3. Download only the Basic Driver and install. The normal driver software is not yet 100% compatible with Windows 10.http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Deskjet-2050A-All-in-One-Printer-series---J510/5068688/model/5068689/drivers/
