Is your printer Vista compatible?
Did you have been installed in correct way your printer?

If this it is a driver issue, try to find the right drivers for your printer (must be compatible with Vista)
Go to the website of your printer manufacturer >> www.yourprinterbrand.com >> then go to Support >> Software and drivers

And download the driver there

If your printer is not Vista compatible at this point:

1) is better to get a new printer compatible with Vista

or

How can I share my HP officejet 5610 all in one printer that is connected to my desktop that has windows XP with my windows vista laptop?


1. Unplug your USB cable from the back of the Windows XP PC and plug the USB cable directly into your Windows Vista PC.
2. The Windows Vista drivers for your printer should be automatically loaded and your printer will be installed on your Windows Vista PC. If this was successful, skip right to step 3.
If step 2 is not successful

i. Download the Windows Vista printer driver for your printer from
the manufacturers website.

1. If your printers manufacturer has not created a Vista driver
yet, retry step 2.

ii. Install the driver on your Windows Vista PC. During
installation, youll be prompted to connect the printer to your PC.
Choose the option to proceed with installation without connecting the printer.

3. After installation is complete, open the Printers icon in the Windows Vista Control Panel.
4. Right-click on your printer that was just installed and choose Properties.
5. Navigate to the Ports tab.
6. Click Add Port, then select Local Port, then click New Port.
7. For the Port Name, enter the exact network path and share name of your printer. (ex. - \\HOMEPC\Printer2) 8. Click OK and make sure that this new port is selected with a check in the checkbox.
9. Click Apply and then OK to close the printer properties.
10. You should now be able to print from your Windows Vista PC to a shared printer located on your Windows XP PC.

The drivers for Vista are included in Vista installation. This means that Vista does not need any additional software to install tthis printer.

If printer does not install automatically, then there is either a problem with Vista or a problem with the Printer.
