I have an HP Photosmart 1215 printer. Been working fine for a long time until about a month ago. Nothing major changed with system..
During bootup get error message "Unable to start driver for HPHipm09.exe". It seems that this is the last driver the system boots up..
I found out that if I start my web browser or another program before system finishes bootup the driver will load just fine. I've done this several times and every time I start a program, everything loads fine..
I've uninstalled printer and software several times per HP website and it works untill I reboot. Have latest drivers and software HP has on website.
Not sure what to do next..
