Unable to install HP deskjet F4288 All in one in laptop(OS Vista)

Dear Sir,
I purchased a HP Deskjet F4288 All-in-One on 28/11/2008 and since then I have tried to install the said All-in-One in my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop, but unable to do so. I am using a windows Vista Home Basic operating system and the said All-in-One supports Windows Vista. To solve the problem I contacted the HP people a number of times, but was unable to install the All-in-One with there help also. So they told to contact Dell and accordingly I contacted them and also tried to install the All-in-One with there help but again was unable to do so. The problem that we are facing is that during installation a diaglog box comes where it is written " Windows installer has stopped working" and after that we are unable to install the All-in-One.
Hope you will be able to give me a solution to the problem since I am using geniune Microsoft OS purchased from Dell. Because both HP and Dell are telling that it is the problem to the Windows.
Thanking you,

I have recently installed a window 7, but software cd which i have of hp f4288, that is the old version, that is not installing on this window what should i do now/

Its possible that your f4288 software CD only has drivers for Windows XP or older operating systems. Unfortunately they are not compatible with Windows 7. Try going to the HP website and look at the support area for the F4288, see if they have updated Windows 7 drivers or look for Vista drivers if Windows 7 are not available (as Vista drivers are supposed to be compatible with Windows 7). If Windows 7 (or Vista) drivers are not available on the HP website you are out of luck for now until HP releases new drivers.

Recently I installed Windows 7 ,but i am not able to install the driver for my HP Deskjet F4288.Is there any supported drivers for Windows 7???

win 7 didn't found any suitable driver? if yes, than you don't need to install any driver, if not, than try vista drivers and run them in compatibility mod with vista - right click on setup, select properties and you'll find it
