Vista requires a plug-n-play software, that can be downloaded from HP's website. Go to HP.com, support, enter model number and choose operating system (Vista). The page will allow you to download, free, the plug and play software.
* Note: Vista sometimes allows you to just plug the printer in and it automatically installs the plug n play (without software). You can try this also.
You may not like the new software HP has so if you still have your CD that came withe the 950 than drop it into your cd-rom & re-install the software. If you want the lastest software for your HP 950 just click the link below. You can install or save the file.
If you want to save the file creat a new folder & name it HP950. Save the driver softtware into that folder.
When I worked at staples. I sold theses Units and that actually was a common problem. We had a number of returns of that unit with that exact problem. What happens is that a small plastic piece inside breaks off and the gears no longer work properly. The firmware on the machine then thinks the cartridges are not aligned. If the unit is out of warranty then I would suggest buying a new printer. HP is really good when it comes to ink yield. and it is usually a decent product. However like any products off an assembly line, there are lemons. There made to break down eventually anyway, Company's wouldn't make money if they lasted forever.
