    I have the same problem except that it tells me "An error occurred during the installation of the devbice-Contact your hardware vendor"

    I followed the troubleshooting solution with no avail.

    Going crazy!!! 2 wasted days on this!!

    Returning it back-I have a business to run-will never buy an HP again.

If you bought it recently, it should be compatible with Vista. It should say on the box if you still have it. Unplug the printer. Try completely uninstalling all the HP software you just installed, then reboot your PC. Go to HP's website and download the latest driver/software package for this model. This could take a while, some of these files are huge. Make sure that when you install the software that you just downloaded, you leave the printer unplugged until it asks you to plug it in. Good luck.

I got Hp photosmart C4480 but the cd installer that comes with the printer is for c4400,,is their any way i could get the installer for my CHP c4480?

to download the drivers for your HP Photo Smart C4480 Go to this link:

When you get there, select where you see "Operating System", select your operating system (ex: XP, Vista, or Windows 7). It will then show all the drivers for your operating system...scroll down until you see the Driver Product Installation Software 2 and then download and reinstall it. Hopefully this will help...good luck.

This printer and installation software is the worst I've ever see

try unistalling and customise install. And then install using your printer wizard. That way you dont have all the stuff you dont need installed.

New Black cartridge installed. Only part of page prints.

I understand your concern and to resolve the issue you need to download and install HP smart web printing software. Click Here for HP Smart Web Printing software and select your operating system and download & install the software.

Here is a page to select your exact model:

Select your model. On the next page, select "Software & Driver Downloads".

On the next page select your operating system. This will take you to the download page to get drivers and other software as needed.
