I have an Interlink RemotePoint VP4810 presentation remote that works great on my Vista laptop. However, when I plug it into my Windows 7 laptop, nothing. The laptop doesn't even make the sound it usually...

If you have the pro version of Windows 7 then you can run the program in compatibility mode (selecting Vista).
After you install the program, find the exe file and right click. Go to properties and click on the Compantibility Tab. You'll see options to run the software in a mode other than Windows 7.

No scan options

Did you install the full software before connecting the all-in-one to the computer? If the printer not scanning to the local computer or a networked computer? Were you trying to use the scanner buttons?

If this is a local problem (USB connection) uninstall any generic driver (these only drive the printer) and then unplug the data cable. Next download and install the software from (select your OS from the list). Connect data cable when prompted to do so. Try a new data cable if the problems persist (scanners require bidirectional communication and will fail when the printer works).
Try a direct connection (no USB hub or print server).

If the computer failed to respond to scanner button press, make sure that the monitoring program is running. You also need to set up the scan destinations in the HP Solution Center for the buttons to work.

If the scanner program isn't running, you can launch them manually. Computer > Local Disc (C:) > Program Files > HP > Digital Imaging > Bin (double click on each of the above drives/folders). Find either Hpiscnapp.exe or Hpqscnvw.exe and double click to launch the HP scan program.

XP, Vista and Win7 can acquire scans without the HP software but the scanner buttons will not work. All three can acquire scans with Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera > New Scan). Vista and Win7 also have Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan).

Since you need to set the destinations, you should use the HP software to launch scans first. This lets you get a feel for the defaults that will be best to put into the destinations.

I hope this helps.

Hello here! i have tried to install my lexmark x5150 to my compacq laptop, and cant get it to print, i have installed the disc countless times wiyh out any progress can you help?

Try this:
first uninstall the disc's software
than restart the laptop
if correct it will automaticly detect your printer and ask for the disk.
cancel the installation.
Insert the disk and cancel the automatic running program for installation.
go to start, printers, add new printer and follow the steps from there untill it says "have disk" click on have disc and brose to your CD drive. It will automatically indicate which program it requires, search on the disc that program and click OK and continue the steps.

Reason: automatic installations from manufacturers sometimes do not install all files needed by windows, installing via windows itself it will automaticcaly pick the correct files from the disc.
