I have the hp deskjet F4180 printer I have used for at least two years. My lap top is a Gateway Windows Vista. Recently the printer failed to print so I deleted the printer as it would not delete the...


HP software can often give you a headache. When you said you deleted the printer did you simply delete it from the control panel where all of your installed devices are listed? If that is the case you need to use HP's Uninstall program to completely remove all HP software for this device before attempting to reinstall the software. If the HP software is no longer listed under your "Start - Programs" menu you can use the Control Panel, go to "Programs - Uninstall a program" find the HP software and remove it. Once that is done you can use your friends CD if it is Vista compatible or download the driver at this link:

Lost install dic for HP deskjet f4180 need to install


Not sure about your model but have you tried the HP website for downloads?
One more possible option, sometimes going to control panel and deleting the printer and its software under programs and also the printer, restarting the computer and then having it install itself works.
I know these are frustrating problems.
Hope it helps.

I lost my disk for hp deskjet f4180 need to know where to get a disk to install.


You can download installation software for most older HP products at hp.com. Go to the support and downloads area. Make sure you know the model number [deskjet f4180 works] and your version of the Windows operating system. I just tried this and it works for your printer. If you really, really need the actual CD, I think HP sells them in the HP parts store.

Hi,

I would guess you are running windows Vista. This is a VBscript runtime error. To fix this,

goto Start > All Programs > Accessories > then right click on "command prompt" , choose run as administrator

in command prompt type in:

regsvr32 vbscript.dll

hit enter

Try installing now..

Hope this fixes your problem!
