your hp photosmart 2570 printer driver is not compitable with vista drivers so its not getting loaded.as the printer is old and the vista is new.the printer will work properly with ---xp---98----and other windows operating systems.this is always a problem for the vista users as the printer does not get loaded.so you can call either hp to provide you a compitable driver cd of your printer to be loaded on vista.or you can call vista to upgrade your sytem by providing you a compitable driver cd.after that your printer will get installed and detected.
Go to this website if you haven't installed the software. Download the driver and then install it, and the installation should walk you through the process. If it doesn't detect the printer, it could be a bad cable. Make sure that the cables are inserted tightly and the power is on. Hope this helps!
Hp has a new driver package available from its website. However, it's best to install the basic printer driver under vista, as the software package does not work properly (even though it says it's for vista).
