Supposedly, Vista has a built-in compatible driver for this printer, but it will only provide you with basic functionalities. HP is not planning on updating drivers for this printer, I guess they much rather make you buy newer printers than providing drivers for some of the old models.

The instructions on how to install a compatible driver is listed here:

You need to run the installation in compatibility mode. This will allow the software to work virtually in a lower OS like Windows XP.

Hello,

You can download the installation program for Windows Vista through the HP website by following this link:
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=Photosmart+3100&submit=Go+%BB
You will need to select the exact model of your printer then select Windows Vista and the installation file will be available to download.

Thank you.

I change my computer XP for vista hp. My printer hp Deskjet F340 is not useful anymore. What can I do to fix it? Thank you


there is nothing you can do because vista has known compatability issues with HP printers and other hardware, you could go to the HP support website and look to see if any vista drivers have been released for your model, if not, you either have downgrade to XP or buy a new printer that works with vista

My windows vista wont let me install my HP Photosmart C4180 printer


Make sure you have the correct version of the software compatible with Vista. It could be that the driver you are trying to install is for a different OS.
Go to this page and download the latest software compatible with Vista for your printer.

Hope that helps!
