I am looking to set up an old computer with new memory and hard drive. I have windows vista from my laptop computer can I install this into my newly updated computer and how.


Generally, the licensed software for your laptop is tied to that machine/brand. If you bought a copy of vista and installed it on the laptop, you may be able to install vista on three machines if that is the version you bought.
Most Microsoft programs are locked to one machine and won't activate on another system.
Now, if this is an old, slow (less than 1 Ghz) with less than 2 gigs, it probably will run Vista very slowly if you get it installed. I'd use the OS that was on the old machine instead of trying to install Vista.

My previous computer worked fine with the C5180 wirelessly. my new Dell Studio XPS will not. the printer disk says it does not meet the minimum requirements and lists my operating system as xp but i have...


Hello

I believe you are misunderstanding it. The old disc is the software and driver for windows XP.

You will need to go onto the HP support website and look up your printers model number. You will be able to download the latest driver for Vista for no cost.

Post back if you have any further question's or comments. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

C5180 will not wok in windows vista


http://search.hp.com/query.html?cc=us&lang=en&qt=C5180&la=en
Here are the Vista drivers to download from HP
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=1153481
Is usually best to download fresh install files from the hp website and try to install again..
They will be in a zip file
This one is only for Vista :)
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-47461-2&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=1153481&os=2093&lang=en
1.Create a new folder for the printer on your desktop
2.Extract the entire zipped folder
3.You may have to delete all the old existing drivers and files

1.Go to Start Menu on Windows
2.Go to Programs to Settings
3.Go to Add Remove Programs
4.Find HP C5180 and hit delete all
reboot
Open the new zipped files and install the new drivers for the printer, scanner, fax, this will help you to install :)

I need help installingmy hp c5180 onto my new computer but i dont have the cd


If you go to the HP website www.hp.com, near the top of the main page you'll see a link to support & drivers. Once there, select the box for drivers and downloads, then in the next step put the model number for your printer (c5180). From there it will ask you whjich operating system, select the one on the laptop you want to install the printer on (xp, vista, etc). It will then direct you to the software & driver options available for your printer.

Bought a H.P. C5180 printer,scanner,copyer for windows xp now i have vista and it will not reconize the viata computer


Hi , Hi, try updating your printer drivers:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done

p.s. look for the vista compatibilily update patch also.

Hi,

Yeah, i assume that since you restore your computer to previous settings, the Software installed in your computer will no longer be there. However, to make your printer work again with windows Vista, you need to download the full feature software and drivers.

Below is the link where you can choose different operating systems, including Vista so that you download the Software.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=1153481&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1153481

Just copy and paste the link on the address bar, and it will bring you directly to the page where you need to select first your operating system. Afterwards, please make sure that you gonna select the "HP Photosmart Full Feature SOftware and drivers" under Drivers page.

Installing the SW and printer driver is just very easy, just read the Installation Wizard and your good to go!

Please give me feedback regarding the outcome of the steps i mentioned.

Thank you so much
