Vista has many compatiblity issues when it comes to software and hardware, what you need to do is download the right drivers for the operating system you are using (if any)
the best thing to do is go to the website and see if there are any vista software or drivers.
if not then the device will only work on XP


hope this helps

Downloadable windowsxp boot disc winxp setup process

Step 2: Run the Setup disk program to create the Setup disks

When you download the Setup disks, the download contains only one large program file. When you run the downloaded file, it extracts the files. You receive the following message:

This program creates the Setup boot disks for Windows XP. To create these disks, you need to provide 6 blank, formatted, high-density disks.

Please specify the floppy drive to copy the images to:

Type the drive letter for the floppy disk drive (this is typically drive A). After you type the floppy disk drive letter, you receive the following message:

Insert one of these disks into drive drive letter:. This disk will become the Windows XP Setup Boot Disk.

Press any key when you are ready.

When you press a key, the downloaded file starts to extract and copy the files. Continue to insert the blank disks as you are prompted to do this until all six disks are created. If the process is interrupted, you must run the downloaded program file again to create all six disks.

Make sure that you label each disk appropriately with the number that is specified by the program. You must use the disks in the correct order during the Setup process.

Step 3: Start your computer by using the first Setup disk to begin a new Windows XP installation

After you create all six disks, insert the first disk in the floppy disk drive, and then restart the computer. The computer must be configured to start from the floppy disk drive. You may have to modify the BIOS settings on your computer to do this.

The Setup process starts. Insert the other floppy disks when you are prompted. You must use the Windows XP CD-ROM to finish the Setup process.

Will not install


If you are running Windows XP or Vista (not clarified in your post)? Then just start your computer, wait five minutes and connect the printer, without any disk in the optical drives. If prompted by Windows hardware configuration wizard to insert the CD/DVD then do so and only then. Continue with the wizard and all should be fine.

AVG 7 detecdted Virus Hurri on partition table. How do I remove ?


You will need to fix the master boot record with the Windows XP Recovery Console. To do this, you will need a Windows XP install CD.

Here are the steps to use the recovery console:

To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
  1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation.

In this instance, the correct commands are:

c:\fixmbr
c:\fixboot
The type exit after finishing then remove the Original OS CD.
The machine will reboot properly.

This will fix your boot sector

And All should be well

Is the printerdriver easy to install?


Yes, follow this steps

Most new printers, especially USB printers, come with installer programs. If you have neither installation instructions nor an installation program, you can use one of the following procedures to install most printers:
USB printers (Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP only)
  1. Make sure that the USB cable is unplugged from your computer and your printer. USB devices work differently from older devices and usually need to have the drivers installed before you connect the device.

  2. If you have an installation disk, insert it into the drive. If there is an installer provided, it should run or be executed here. Follow its instructions, and it should take care of installing your printer in a few moments.

  3. If you don't have an installation program, plug the USB cable into your computer and your printer. This should trigger the Add New Hardware Wizard.

  4. Click Next, and then select Search for the best driver for your device. Click Next.

  5. Uncheck all options except Specify a Location. Click Browse. Browse to the disk, CD, or directory where your printer drivers are located. Click OK, and then click Next twice. Note: You can download some drivers from the web. Consult the web site of your printer's manufacturer, or see Where can I find driver updates for my Windows computer?
  6. When all the files are copied, click Finish.

  7. Turn on your printer. Windows should detect the printer's presence and finish the installation. If the option to print a test page is offered, do so. This will confirm the installation. Click Finish.
Parallel port printers Windows 2000 and XP
  1. In Windows XP default view, from the Start menu, select Printers and Faxes, and then double-click Add Printer. In Windows XP Classic view, or in Windows 2000, from the Start menu, select Settings, then Printers, and then double-click Add Printer. This will start the Add Printer Wizard. Click Next.
  2. Select Local printer or Local printer attached to this computer. Click Next.

  3. Select the LPT port.

  4. Select the manufacturer and model for the printer you are installing. If you would rather use the driver disk that came with the printer, insert that disk and click Have Disk, and then browse to the driver disk and the proper folder. Click Open, then OK. Sometimes at this point, you will be asked if you print from MS-DOS programs. Most people can safely answer No here, but if you print from any DOS-based programs, answer Yes.
  5. Windows will offer a name for the printer that you may change if you like. If this is your only printer, or you wish to use this printer most of the time, select Yes to make this the default printer.

  6. You will be given the option to share this printer on the network. Unless you specifically want to do this, select Do not share this printer. Click Next.

  7. Make sure the printer is connected and turned on, and then answer Yes to print a test page. This will ensure that your printer is working. After the page has printed, click Finish. Your printer should be ready to use.

Computer does'nt start


This is usually caused by a registry file that grew too large. Your best bet, assuming that you don't have the WIndows disk because it is a Dell, or another PC type that has the hidden recovery partition, is to run your system's recovery and do a non-destructive recovery that will attempt to repair the OS without damaging your files.
Beyond that, you are going to need the Windows XP CD to access the recovery console, and that have worked for somany people having similar problem.when you load the restore cd Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert
the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the
CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery
Console. ...
this will restore the missing files in the system registry.hope this helps thanks and God bless
