Hi,
Yeah sure.. Follow the below steps..
For parallel Printers...

  1. In Windows XP default view, from the Start menu, select Printers and Faxes, and then double-click Add Printer. In Windows XP Classic view, or in Windows 2000, from the Start menu, select Settings, then Printers, and then double-click Add Printer. This will start the Add Printer Wizard. Click Next.
  2. Select Local printer or Local printer attached to this computer. Click Next.

  3. Select the LPT port.

  4. Select the manufacturer and model for the printer you are installing. If you would rather use the driver disk that came with the printer, insert that disk and click Have Disk, and then browse to the driver disk and the proper folder. Click Open, then OK. Sometimes at this point, you will be asked if you print from MS-DOS programs. Most people can safely answer No here, but if you print from any DOS-based programs, answer Yes.
  5. Windows will offer a name for the printer that you may change if you like. If this is your only printer, or you wish to use this printer most of the time, select Yes to make this the default printer.

  6. You will be given the option to share this printer on the network. Unless you specifically want to do this, select Do not share this printer. Click Next.

  7. Make sure the printer is connected and turned on, and then answer Yes to print a test page. This will ensure that your printer is working. After the page has printed, click Finish. Your printer should be ready to use.
For USB Printers..

  1. Make sure that the USB cable is unplugged from your computer and your printer. USB devices work differently from older devices and usually need to have the drivers installed before you connect the device.

  2. If you have an installation disk, insert it into the drive. If there is an installer provided, it should run or be executed here. Follow its instructions, and it should take care of installing your printer in a few moments.

  3. If you don't have an installation program, plug the USB cable into your computer and your printer. This should trigger the Add New Hardware Wizard.

  4. Click Next, and then select Search for the best driver for your device. Click Next.

  5. Uncheck all options except Specify a Location. Click Browse. Browse to the disk, CD, or directory where your printer drivers are located. Click OK, and then click Next twice. Note: You can download some drivers from the web. Consult the web site of your printer's manufacturer, or see Where can I find driver updates for my Windows computer?
  6. When all the files are copied, click Finish.

  7. Turn on your printer. Windows should detect the printer's presence and finish the installation. If the option to print a test page is offered, do so. This will confirm the installation. Click Finish.
Thank you for contacting Fixya...

Hp c3180 with windows 7 64 bit won't work


When I bought my Windows 7 64bit, my c3180 did everything but scan. I downloaded the drivers 5 times with no avail. I stumbled onto how to do it by accident. Go to control panel, click on devices and printers, click ONCE on HP photosmart 3100 series and look at top of window. It will have several choices, one of which is 'start scanning'. Hope this helps.

Ok you should try being logged onto the admin account, having admin rights is not the same as being logged on to the admin account.

Most problems with Vista seem to be easily over ridden by being logged on to the Admin account.

Note: This may or may not be the solution to your problem, so please take the time to rate the solution, thank you.
