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.

Printer cd rom won't load and run to instal new printer because it says that it can't run in the current operating system, what can I do?


If you CD installer is for Vista, and you are using windows XP, it will not run and you will really get that error. If your CD Installer is for Vista or XP and your Operating System is linux or MAC, you can't really get to install it. Please find the appropriate installer for your OS. Or, you might have not run the right setup.exe program in your CD.

You will need to go to the HP support site,

Find your specific printer, and download the driver for Vista. Should not be a problem after that.

Don´t Print my HP Officejet v40


From what I can see Vista already has the drivers for this printer built in, so if you have installed the Windows XP drivers from CD you may need to remove them first and see how it goes with the standard Vista drivers.

Please note that some functions may not be available as this product is not completely Vista compatible.

More information available at HP HERE.

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.
