Say WHAT ?! My HP Photosmart 6180 says that it does not support my Vista O/S. The printer is about 1.5 years old and Vista has been around for at least that long ! Does anyone know how I can install my HP printer ? Many thanks. mw

check the mocrosoft compatability list (search that) to see if your printer is supported. if it is, you are all set, if not, you must get HP to provide the same if they will. If they will not (send them a e-mail) you might find a 3rd party driver. In the absence of any, get your XP computer back out and hook the printer to it and use it as a print server.
Turn off the machine using the power button, unplug the power cord from the back of the machine, remove the ink cartridges, wait 2 min, press the power button to turn the machine on, wait until the printer prompts that the ink cartridges are missing, then replace the ink. If this doesn't fix it you may need to re-prime the ink lines using the directions at this web page http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/hp-photosmart-ink-system-failure-1/.
Note: If you don't know whether your system is 32 Bit or 64 Bit then go to 'Computer' icon and right click it or go to "Control Panel" and double-click 'System' Then see what is written in front of 'System Type'.
Next follow the appropriate link. If you are unsure please ask.
Sir please select your operating system and download your drivers from this site Before installing this file please make sure that you do not have anyother printer driver installed Please uninstall all other printer drivers

I think you should read carefully when installing the product software. Because at a stage of installation you have to choose whether to install from your CD or check for update from website. If you choose check for update you can get this kind of problem. I hope this can help you. good luck
