Pardon me for asking if you have downloaded the driver for Vista? pls ensure that you have done this otherwise it will not really print becuse of incompatible drivers.
or pls check if there is already a presence of a printer in your computer, then right click the proprties and hit test page.

I have a Dell laptop with Windows Vista and an hp officejet 4215v all-in-one. How do I get the fax and scan functions to work? I can print but not scan or fax. I am not at all computer literate. HELP


Hi,

First step is to know the version ( system type ) of your Dell Vista PC.
Click on START button
Right click on Computer and left Click on Properties
From the New Window Check for System Type : It will be mentioned as 32 bit operating system or 64 bit operating system. ( Remember this )

I assume you have not installed the complete software for your Printer.
Click on the link below to download the drivers for Vista O/s for the printer.
When the page is open - Choose the Operating system and click on Next Button.

Click on Drivers and Product installation option and click on HP Full Feature Software and Drivers
Click on Download button on top and click SAVE ( Remember the location you save the file )
You need to run the downloaded software.
Disconnect the USB Cable from printer before you start the installation as the screen will prompt you when you connect it.
Download Drivers

Hope this is helpful and will help you in installing the printer software and able to scan as well.


Thank you for contacting FixYa

I can't connetc mx310 to my new computer. The computer is running windows vista. Do I need to download a seperate software ?


Hi,
The printer drives varies with OS, even if the printer is of the same model. So goto canon website and specify your printer model and OS, download appropriate drivers and install it in Vista. Then you are good to go.

Can't scan with my HP officejet 4255 all-in-one


Hi
Hope you doing well this year and i am sure that thing will go good as well

the problem you mentioned : When you press the Scan button on the product control panel, nothing happens. A scan does not start.

This issue usually occurs because you do not have the full feature driver installed for the product. Button functions on the product control panel require a full feature software and driver installation for Windows Vista.

Follow these steps to download and install the full feature software from the HP Web site.

1) Turn the product on.
2) Disconnect any USB cable from both the product and the computer.
3) Open a new window to browse to the Select Software and Drivers page:
Click on the Following Link to get the Updated drivers for all OS

DRIVERS HP Officejet 4255


4) Click / select the Operating system
5) Click the Full Feature Software and Drivers option.

6) Click Download only . This option allows you to install the software at any time after the download completes.
7) Click Save , and then browse to the location on your computer where you want to save the file.
8) Click Save . The software downloads to your computer.
Tip: Make a note of the place that you saved the file, in case you want to install it at a later time.
9) When the download is complete and you are ready to install the files, click Open Folder , and then click the downloaded file. The file name ends in .exe .
10) You can accept the default location to save the files. Click Next , and then wait while the installer extracts the files to prepare for installation.
11) When the Install Wizard starts, follow the on-screen instructions to install the software.

Can no longer fax or scan


got to control panel and uninstall all the applications and drivers related to your printer in the machine running vista. Then place the printer installation CD came with your printer in the CD drive. Now just connect your printer to machine and switch it on. Vista should display new Hardware connected or any other sound alert acknowledging that printer is connected to your machine. If it prompts for driver installation, select it to search for drivers automatically. Before that make sure that your printer installation cd is in drive. Vista will automatically search for the drivers and installs it. If it's not, then the cd came with your printer may not have drivers for vista. go to HP website and download driver for vista and install it.

Missing installation disc


Yes, this just might be the issue!! Many printer manufacturers now have to cope with the new vista OS and produve drivers to suit this. Download the vista driver fo your printer off lexmark website. Befor this, jsut check to see if the printer preferences is checked to work offline or something similar. Sometimes a little setting is all that is the problem.

Updated to Windows Vista and now the Dell 922 AIO scanner won't work


For windows Vista; it is imperative to run the Vista patch which can be found on the Dell website (Downloads and drivers).
Make sure that you run the patch, after removing the printer USB cable from the computer. Restart the computer as the patch suggests and then install the Vista specific drivers, which also need to be downloaded from Dell Website.
Again, do not connect the printer unless the installation software asks you to.
For scanner issues, those who are unable to get anything scanned to their computer, and are able to print, it is essentialy a Firewall/Anti-virus issue. You can check that out by trying to scan using an application such as MSPaint (Start> type 'mspaint' > hit enter).
