Question about HP PhotoSmart C4280 Laser Printer

Can't install HP Photosmart c4280

I have spent countless hours with HP techs and sites but to no avail. The HP c4280 installs effortlessly on our other computer that has Windows XP. Installing it on our other one (the one we purchased with this printer and for this printer) that has Windows Vista has been one big nightmare. When it's time to turn on printer and plug in USB cable all seems fine, but that's as far as it goes. Keep getting Windows couldn't find driver software. I've tried the cd that came with printer and downloading from HP's site. And a multitude of other ways from HP techs and other sites. Would appreciate any advice. I can't even begin to tell you all the other ways I have tried installing it. My scanner keeps saying USB not connected, but it is !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please help me solve this I'd like to use my scanner that is 16 months old and NEVER BEEN USED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT'S STILL BAND NEW !!!!!!!!!

You have to know first if your printer is Vista compatible.
If yes, you need the vista drivers in order to get your printer connected with vista.

When the system prompt for the driver, click BROWSE and Select the location
Open the folder when the downloaded driver is and click OK
This must be fixing your problem

Find the windows vista compatible driver for your model, run the installation package, and that should be it. If not open your printer configuration dialog from the control panel and continue from there.

I have already the HP Photosmart C4280 All-in-One: Printer, Scanner, Copier but I can not install it to my Loptap (acer)which has no CD drive to install the same... So I need to download a free...


your driver is available for free download here http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=3192753&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us&submit=Go%20
you will need to chose your operating system on the first page.
the second page has the drivers. personally i always download the full software and drivers together (they include the extra software to edit photos and stuff)
download them to your desktop (so you can find them) double click on the icon it creates to start the install, follow the prompts, restart the computer when asked..
Regards..
