You haven't posted your printer details, so go to the printer manufacturer site yourself and select your model and then Vista, then the driver will be available for download

    Remove the printer, uninstal the driver from add/remove programmes and start again, as this can happen sometimes, and also try to use a different usb port than last time to stop a repeat spooler problem.

I have a mini laptop but i couldnt print all my reports because i dont know how to install our hp photosmart printer c4480......i ask for your assistance............thank you very much


There are 2 ways of solving your problem.
1 If your mini laptop has a CD player, then load the CD which came with the printer on your laptop. Then click on the printer& faxes in the start menu. On the page displayed check for icon of your printer. Click on the icon and make it your default printer. Now you can start printing the documents.

2 You can go to web site of HP. Click on support. Go to drivers. From the list check the driver for your model and down load it. Once download is complete install it. Check for the icon in the printers & faxes page in the control panel. Make it your default printer. You can now print the documents.

When i connect the usb cable to my laptop,y it cant print anything???please help..is it need some installation cd or some software coz this printer belongs to my friend....


Hello!

Once you connected the printer to your laptop see if it was able to detect the printer,
- go to Control Panel
- look for Printers and Faxes and open it

  • And if you are able to find an icon with the brand of your printer, so it was able to detect your printer and you don't need any cd or drivers for it.

to be be able to print on your printer, right click (still on Printer and Faxes) then select Properties. On the printers menu click PORTS tab then at the bottom find or select USB port, then click OK, after the configuration you can now print.

  • And if you do not find any printers on Printers and Faxes folder, meaning you need the installation cd or software driver for your printer.
to install the driver,
- connect printer to your laptop, then insert cd and follow the instructions---its just a simple and easy for you to follow.


Hope I was able to help.

Open Control Panel, Printers and faxes. Check if there is icon for your printer. If not, you have to install the driver using CD that comes with the printer.
Blue screen often means very badly broken windows installation and your vendor probably reinstalled it as new installation. Therefore your printer may not be installed.

Can no longer fax or scan


got to control panel and uninstall all the applications and drivers related to your printer in the machine running vista. Then place the printer installation CD came with your printer in the CD drive. Now just connect your printer to machine and switch it on. Vista should display new Hardware connected or any other sound alert acknowledging that printer is connected to your machine. If it prompts for driver installation, select it to search for drivers automatically. Before that make sure that your printer installation cd is in drive. Vista will automatically search for the drivers and installs it. If it's not, then the cd came with your printer may not have drivers for vista. go to HP website and download driver for vista and install it.

I AM ON THE WINDOWS XP AFTER INSTALLING THE DRIVER THE TEST PAGE IS PRINTED BY THE PRINTER BUT ON GIVING COMMAND FOR OTHER PRINTING THE PRINTER DOES NOT PRINT


Got to: start>settings(classic view)>control panel>printers and faxes.
An icon for your printer should be there. Right click the printer icon and select "use as default". While in control panel, you can run the troubleshooter. Sometimes it works. Sometimes the software doesn't install correctly. Uninstall the software from the add/remove software in control panel, then re-install the printer software.
