Assuming that you are running the WIndows Vista Home edition you can download the newest drvere here..

ccik on the first driver and install it...then plug in the printer to the computer. Do not plug in the printer to the pc prior to installing the driver.. this could cause you some issues as well.

Here is the download page for your printer. It also has a critical update you should download after you install the new drivers. Before downloading and installing the new drivers, make sure you go to add /remove in the control panel and remove the old driver and software for the printer.

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:

HP Deskjet F2210 won't install on Vista


Go to control panel/programs and features and uninstall the HP driver and all associated software.

Reboot, then reinstall the LATEST version written SPECIFICALLY for VISTA SP2. Install the driver BEFORE you connect the printer. After you install the driver if your computer still doesn't recognize the printer, leave it connected and reboot.

You should see the 'found new hardware' wizard open and automatically install the printer.

Hope this works. Good luck.

Bought new computer with windows vista, my printer [deskjet f380] is not compatable with vista,any thing i can do,or will i need a new one.


Hi! Windows sometimes offer a compatability issue report and should direct you to the site where Vista related drivers can be installed, if not try Hp's website support/downloads for Vista compatability issues. I'm sure if the printer isn't too old then your luck may be in and you'll get the required driver/s.
I hope this helps!

Installation of a downloaded driver for Lexmark X1290 All-In_One


Hi,

You need to download the Vista compatible setup here from Lexmark,

http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:567:0:0&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista&target=

Run the setup after it finishes downloading but ONLY connect the printer to the computer when the setup instructs you to do so.
