Hi,
Here's the link ro download the Vista driver for your Printer/Scanner:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=1146331

You should uninstall the XP driver for the Printer and install this instead: HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers

You should use the uninstaller utility on the HP support page on the link provided, and after installing the new driver.

You can also scan and copy in Vista by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie HP C3180) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

    Woops. sorry I didn't finish that sentence, 'after installing your new driver', I was going to suggest installing the Recommended Scanner Update on the page too, but I think that's only necessary if you have a Tablet computer.

All lights flashing after printing job is finished


How is your printer connected to your computer? Do you have the latest driver for your printer? If you are not sure, go on the HP website and download the latest driver for the HP C3280 (make sure it is for Windows 7) and install it. See if that takes care of your problem. Let me know.

HP C3180 printer doesn't work after Microsoft updates (vista)


Check the Windows Update history and see which updates were just installed. You can manually remove individual updates - note they will appear again. You can also use the Windows System Restore to go back in time, but the updates will still be applied again so try to determine the update that caused the issues and you can select to ignore the update using custom Windows Update settings (set it to check for updates but not automatically install.
