Hp deskjet 9650 not compatible with Vista 64-bit
Hp Deskjet 9650 printer owner, sorry to inform that there is no Microsoft Windows Vista
operating system printer driver solution available for your printer. But there is an alternative way to workaround it so that you can do basic printing with your printer.
As a workaround, an alternate printer driver solution included in
Microsoft Windows Vista operating system can be used to perform basic
printing to the printer. However you might find that some of the
product features are no longer available when using this alternate
printer driver, but that is your best option right now.
The alternative HP printer driver that will work with your printer is

8. Under Printers , select the appropriate alternate driver for the printer (deskjet 9800) and then click Next .
9. In the Printer name text box, type the printer name and then click Next . The printer driver starts to install.
NOTE: The name of the alternate driver displays as the default name. Change this name to the name of the printer, if desired.
10. After the screen stating that the printer was successfully added displays, connect the USB cable / Parallel cable to the printer and to the computer.
11. On the Found New Hardware screen, click Cancel .
12. For USB connected printer, please proceed to step three . For Parallel port connected printer, please proceed to step four .
