Question about HP PhotoSmart C3140 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I had to restore my computer to factory settings after a particularly nasty virus infected everything, and upon reinstalling everything, my Photosmart c3100 (C3140 All-in-One) refuses to install. It's incompatible with Windows 7, but I used to have it installed without any issues whatsoever.

Hope this helps; Try Printer Self Test feature by placing a paper on tray or bypass. Start from off position press Enter button or equivalent and hold down for 3 seconds and press the power button on. Do not release yet the Enter button until it initializes for self test printing. We'll see if it prints correctly or the colors will be printed completely. Proceed to uninstall everything or reinstalling if found print test is correct.

Make sure that java, direct X, and .NET components are up to date. Many installers not require these.
If the install just can't see the printer, I would completely uninstall any components you were able to get installed (if any), remove the device entirely from your system, download a Vista version of the driver from HP if possible, and run the setup.exe...If your using a system driver you'll have to hook the printer up first, otherwise when it asks you to attach the printer then hook it up in a different USB port.
If all else fails install the drive manually through the control panel using Add Harware and then browse for the INF file.

I have a customer with Windows XP and the same issue. Told him to unplug the printer cable when starting the computer and/or restarting it. Wait until all auto-start programs have loaded, including and specifically the HP Monitoring Utility program. Once Windows is up and he's at the desktop, THEN plug the printer cable into the computer. He's been doing that for several days now with no duplicate printers installed.
