Go to control panel/programs and features and uninstall the HP driver and all associated software.
Reboot, then reinstall the LATEST version written SPECIFICALLY for VISTA SP2. Install the driver BEFORE you connect the printer. After you install the driver if your computer still doesn't recognize the printer, leave it connected and reboot.
You should see the 'found new hardware' wizard open and automatically install the printer.
Since F2200 is a series number it is hard to get a specific driver but if you look on the lable on the back or bottom of the printer you should be able to see what the actual printer model is.
Here is a link to all of the F2200 series downloads on the HP website. Once you know what the actual model number is for your printer all you will have to do is click on the apropriate option and download the driver for your OS.
If you need any additional assistance please let me know.
Don't Worry you have the right disc.
The printer you have is of Deskjet F2200 Series and F2280 Is on of them.
Although the printers are segrigated but the Printer driver and software are the same for the F2200 Series.
1) First let's make sure the hardware is working. Place a document face down on the scanner glass. Press Start Copy Black. Did it scan and print? If not, please let us know. If it did, go to the next step. 2) Please confirm the USB cable is plugged firmly into the back of the printer and to the computer. Do not go through a hub, switch, or router. 3) Click on your Apple icon (upper left corner), System Preferences, Print and fax. Do you have the F2210 printer listed more than once? I am going to suggest removing the F series printer. Highlight it and press the minus button to delete. Once you have removed it, close all windows back to the desktop. On the computer click on Hard Drive > Applications > Hewlett-Packard > Device Utilities > HP Setup Assistant. Follow the on screen directions to add the printer back to computer. Do not re-register the printer (choose skip or register later). Once your are able to click finish, try printing again. I would suggest trying to print from Text Edit first. This will rule out any possible issues with the Word document you were trying to print. Click on Hard Drive > Applications > Text Edit. Type your name in the untitled screen. Click on File > Print. Make sure the F2200 series printer is selected. Click Print. Did it print?
