HP5500 universial PCL5/6 vista driver not printing color

I have a new PC with Vista business installed. hp5500dn driver for XP does not recognise extra paper trays, douplex printing or options for changing paper type. I have installed both PCL 5 & 6 universial drivers which fix previous issues BUT states color printing not available even though shoing status of color toner cartridges. Other PCs in office with XP still print color.

    The link you provide takes me to the drivers for a HP5550 ... not the 5500 as required. I gave it a go any way but does not work. the applicable driver for the 5500 has previously downloaded and tested ... and does not work properly. Thanks.

    Oh I see the '5550' which is a typo - sorry. The body of the question does however refer to the 5500. I will leave the appicable driver installed and look at ther potential issues Thanks

    Welcome to VISTA, the new and Improved? OS . I wonder how many years it will take to finally get complete compatibility? Likely never will with older products like yours.  Is a windows Xp downgrade available for your new computer?

    The top of this question states 5550, not 5500. If the 5500 driver from the same site does not work and you are downloading the one for VISTA, then it is not a driver problem but some other sort of problem.

At this moment there is no Vista driver for this printer.
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.

BAD, BLURY, SMEARED, PRINTING


This is from the lexmark website
"Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected."

How to make Vista to recognize my old Hard drive


There are normally only two ways to get vista to recognise large drives and that is to format it within windows by way of right click my computer then click manage and then highlight your harddrive right click and select format. The other way is if your drive isnt being recognised because of the bios and needs updating, as most bios chips did when upgrading to vista.
