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.

Lost cd for C4280 all in one ,how do I down load on my new computor

You go to HP Support, and download the software.

(BEFORE you do this procedure, be sure that the Photosmart C4280 is ->Not, plugged into the computer with the USB cable. C4280 should also be off, and not plugged into power)

This is HP Support, and the page where you choose your Operating System.

This page is for the Photosmart C4280, and after you choose your Operating System, it will go to the software page.
Since you did not state what operating system you are using, I will choose Windows XP as an example.

(However I have viewed both the Windows XP, and the Windows Vista software, and it is the same for what You need. If you have a computer with MAC on it, it is different)

On the above page you will choose ->
HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers.
(Date: 07-2007 Version 9.0.1 Size: 150.1M)

Left-click right on -> HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers.
You will now be taken to another page. On this page towards the top, (Left), are the words ->
Download only>>, in a blue bar.
Click on this.

A small window will pop-up on the right. Click on Save File.
You may or may not see a download progress bar. You should, but if not it's okay. Wait 1 minute to insure the file has fully downloaded, then close all windows, and go back to your desktop screen.

If you do not have your downloads set to go to your My Documents folder, (Start>My Documents, with Windows XP. Start>User>Documents, with Vista),
this file will go to your desktop screen.

It is a yellow folder with PS_AIO_NonNetwork_ENU_NB.exe, under it.
Double-click on it to open this file.
The Installation Wizard should now come up. Click on Agree, (If listed), Next, and Next again, then Finish.
If it asks you if you wish to restart your computer do so.
If it does not, do so anyway.

When Windows loads back up, plug the USB cable from the printer into the computer. (Never leave a USB cable dangling from a computer. Always unplug it from the computer)
Plug the printer into power.
Turn the printer on. You should see a "Found New Hardware" out of your task bar at the bottom. Also perhaps a "Found Photosmart C4280"

Go to start>Hover on All Programs>HP>Photosmart C4280, and to the Help Guide, if you have problems, or questions.

Windows keeps re-installing HP Photosmart C4280

I have a customer with Windows XP and the same issue. Told him to unplug the printer cable when starting the computer and/or restarting it. Wait until all auto-start programs have loaded, including and specifically the HP Monitoring Utility program. Once Windows is up and he's at the desktop, THEN plug the printer cable into the computer. He's been doing that for several days now with no duplicate printers installed.

Can't install HP Photosmart c4280

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

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.
