    I'm currently using the L7780 all in one. I have probably put in 30 hours (most of them with HP elevated technical phone support) trying to get the driver to fully function. It 80% installs then we have to go into the "c" drive to pull out the features and place short cuts on the desktop. I also sometimes have to reinstall the printer driver in order to get it to even print. It doesn't work through the router so I have to use a usb cable. So, i bought the latest and greatest from HP and I couldn't even get the cd to fully install even with phone support. So, i took the all in one back and went back to using my L7780 crippled as it may be. I'm on the opinion that it is a conflict with vista home premium software.

    What is your printer model number? HP only comes up with computers with 8510 in the model number.

Welcome to the world of Vista. It sounds like the printer installer and Vista don't work together, so it's not the printer hardware or your computer. As inka30 said, you can go back to XP. That would be my suggestion too just on general principles. Vista is just too bloated and has too many problems such as you are experiencing. But if you want to keep Vista, another option is to check reviews of other printer brands or HP models for reports on how they do with Vista. Then you can replace your current printer when you're ready with something that should install and work smoothly.

Instal only one printer driver on the PC it is physically connected to. Preferably the Windows 7 PC (Latest OS). Unshare the printer, remove drivers from other PC's., then reboot al PC,s and re-share the printer. The PC's sharing should allow the Windows 7 PC to use it's driver, although they may request a disc for basic information about the printer.

HP Deskjet F2210 won't install on Vista


Go to control panel/programs and features and uninstall the HP driver and all associated software.

Reboot, then reinstall the LATEST version written SPECIFICALLY for VISTA SP2. Install the driver BEFORE you connect the printer. After you install the driver if your computer still doesn't recognize the printer, leave it connected and reboot.

You should see the 'found new hardware' wizard open and automatically install the printer.

Hope this works. Good luck.

Not able to install HP photosmart2570 series software on to my new computer with vista home premium


your hp photosmart 2570 printer driver is not compitable with vista drivers so its not getting loaded.as the printer is old and the vista is new.the printer will work properly with ---xp---98----and other windows operating systems.this is always a problem for the vista users as the printer does not get loaded.so you can call either hp to provide you a compitable driver cd of your printer to be loaded on vista.or you can call vista to upgrade your sytem by providing you a compitable driver cd.after that your printer will get installed and detected.

rate the solution if it helps you.
thanks.
