Hi,

You could try downloading a more recent driver package and re-install. Pls start here. Since there are a couple of versions of the F300 series, you may have to determine your exact model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

What type of printer do you have so I can try to see if there are any drivers that may work with your printer with your Windows Vista.

Here is a link to HP Support

You will need to select the exact model from the list.

If you comment back I will lead you to the correct drivers.

    Look like the driver is the same for all F300 printers. Here is the link:



    F300 Series Vista Driver



    Save it to a location you can locate when the download is complete. (Desktop if desired.)



    You need to uninstall the previous software and the printer before reinstalling the new software.



    Use the HP uninstall if available for the software. To uninstall the printer open your Printers and Faxes from the Control Panel. Right click your printer and click Delete.



    Begin reinstalling the "new" printer by disconnecting the USB cable.



    Then locate the new software and run it. (Double-click)



    Connect the printer's USB when prompted by the software.

Printer will not operate on Windows 7 computer.Computer was upgraded from Vista to 7. Vista was completely removed before installing 7. Tried downloading new drivers, didnot work.


Possibly HP rare not supporting this printer in the new OS, although most Vista drivers are compatible with Windows 7, so have you tried installing the original drivers that came with the printer?

Also, Windows 7 has a driver "compatibility mode". Here is use of the mode explained on the Microsoft tech forum:

If the disc was for xp it won't work in vista you need a vista disc or run it in compatable mode and see if it works, it should or go to hp.com and download the correct driver for the printer when using vista. This is free at hp.com

Bought an HP Deskjet F300 All-In-One series last Dec./07 for my daughter for Christmas, installed it on computer no problems. Our computer crashed last week. Bought a new windows XP computer. Now I need to...


Here's the HP support page for F300 series printers: http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_lang=en&h_cc=us&cc=us&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_pagetype=s-002&h_query=deskjet+f300&submit.x=2&submit.y=7
But F325 is the lowest number listed for the driver (that's what you need from the CD to install your printer on the new computer).
I hope this helps, and good luck.

Go here to and click on your specific model, then click on 'Software & Driver downloads', then your Operating System, and you should now be able to download the correct driver package for your printer. I hope that helps. Bundled software with printers and other devices is often out-of-date.
