    thanks for this - I also reloaded vista but nothing changed. The printer isn't shown in the usb list, but under "IEEE 1284.4 devices"

I had the same problem with a different model of the HP 4-in-1 not being compatible with Windows Vista. I went on the HP website, entered the HP model # (be sure to put exactly what it says on the Unit itself) and they will provide you with a compatible download for Vista. Good Luck.

I had the same problem my new dell wouldn't recognize my printer and its on a network had to print through my wifes computer i Reloaded windows vista got rid of all the dell **** and now its fine.see if your printer is set for default in control panel under printers see if you have usb ports in the control panel under devices. if the usb 's aren't dected the drivers are gone in the machine use the cd that came with your computerfor usb drivers you might have to do alittle configuring . vista is no walk in the park.

6 - Yes. Your product is supported. Drivers for HP printers are included with the Microsoft Windows Vista Operating System. Additional software will be available soon. HP has a driver solution available for your product. HP is committed to providing the best experience for HP products in the Windows Vista operating environment. Currently, a full-solution driver is not available for your product. However, we do have an alternative driver solution that you can conveniently find in Microsoft Windows Vista. This driver will enable your product's basic functions to work and can be used until the full driver solution is available. Full-solutions will be available as early as January 2007.

NOTE: If your printer currently uses either a PCL5, PCL6 or PostScript XP driver you may download the current XP driver from HP to provide printing functionality. Windows Vista printing is very similar to Windows XP and most print drivers supported in XP environment for LaserJet printers may also work in the Windows Vista operating system.

Check the HP website and see if there are Vista drivers for your model. If you installed them from the disk they're likely not compatible.
