You need to download the drivers from HP website for VISTA.
If you wish to work printer in networking then you can also add printer in the Laptop by that method.
Let me know more how you need to go for ( since if your XP is a desktop, then I would recommend you to keep the printer connect with it directly and just use a LAN cable for your Laptop.)

The question as I read seems to think that the printer is set up for a specific operating system. The printer doesn't know anything except how to print. The computer that the printer is physically attached to can have the drivers for all operating systems on a network without those drivers being necessary on the computer originating the print job. That is part of the set up when sharing a printer on a network. If you are going to plug the printer into the computer you want to print from then set up the printer on each computer as a local printer. Unplugging the printer doesn't remove the driver and plugging it in to the other computer will automatically be detected regardless of the operating system.

Displays no hard drive found wen installing win xp


You have to go to BIOS setup, find HDD setup, and change the value to the other one (there are only two possibilities). That will fix your problem. The problem is caused by the fact that the lap top was designed for vista, not XP. and the lap top contains SATA HDD. when installing XP pre-installation doesn't have SATA drivers, so your OS can not see the HDD. Change it in BIOS, and you trouble is gone

Gets error code 0x0000007B when I attempt to install XP on hp pavilion dv6-1245dx pre-installed with Vista


Nomally on a vista installed lap you will have reverse compatibility issues when you try to install xp cause vista is a newer editon than xp. So it would be advisible to use a virtual machine software to install xp inside vista.By doing this you can simultaneously run vista and xp at the same time.you can download free software line SUN VMWare.

Hi there,

There may be a problem concerning drivers for WinXP.
- it seems like that Vista is the supported software, however,
try downloading this update software for your laptop, from HERE:
if this doesn’t work, I´d suggest that you go back to Vista.

I change my computer XP for vista hp. My printer hp Deskjet F340 is not useful anymore. What can I do to fix it? Thank you


there is nothing you can do because vista has known compatability issues with HP printers and other hardware, you could go to the HP support website and look to see if any vista drivers have been released for your model, if not, you either have downgrade to XP or buy a new printer that works with vista

Photosmart 3310 is on network but not recognized wirelessly


Sounds like another Vista Bug, i would check the HP site for this issue and if its under warranty, contact HP. If you have alot of Blue tooth devices hooked up, it may be that its trying to use another device in its place or the signals are getting crossed, im not positive.

Its like when you have to many network drives all hooked up and you plug in a USB device, Windows pops up those anoying bubles saying its detected, but in My computer it doesnt show.

So bassically you have to right click my computer, manage, disk management listed uder storage, right click on the device or drive and change the drive letter to something like " W" or " Z" or anything not in use.

It may be a siomilar case with your bluetooth, youo may have to much stuff connected. Try redoing everything like you have so many other times before, and then limiting how many bluetooth devices you have connected at the same time. see if theres a difference.

Hope this helps.

HP812C and/or Epson LX300+ dot matrix Printers installed to a HP V3431 lap top computer would not print.


Download the latest drivers from the manufacturer websites rather then relaying on the old cdroms - they are probarbly outdated and made for XP.
