You should have received a CD with the printer. I would go into the Windows Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the drivers for this printer (if they were installed when you bought the printer). Next, insert the CD that came with the printer and install the necessary drivers and software. After a successful installation, you should not be promted for the "msi" file.

I bought a new hp photosmart C6380 printer in an auction, and then found that some parts are missing. The main one being the printhead, which is proving difficult to locate in NZ. Also the power cable...

You can buy a power supply off Ebay for about $20. A printhead you can find on Alibaba for around $100, maybe more with shipping (it's either from Hong Kong or China, nothing in NZ). You could probably find a computer supplier that will try and get it for you in NZ, but you will get it far more expensive from them.
