Re: installation cd

Try just plugging the printer in to your laptop's usb port and turning the printer on. I found it worked on mine - Vista took a few minutes to find the driver itself, I didn't need to download anything! (I wish someone had told me before - I spent ages looking for a compatible driver online)! Good luck!

Re: installation cd

There is no driver available for the C46 that supports Vista.

You will either need to replace the printer, get a genius to write a driver you, or you could TRY getting vista to run the driver in compatibility mode for XP.

I do not use Vista and so the following could be a comp0lete load of old tosh, but...

In XP if you right click on the .exe file and select Properties, then head for the computability tab, you can choose to run an .exe as if you were using a different version of windows.

I don't know if Uncle Bill has retained this feature in Vista but if he has it's worth a shot. If you are running a 64bit version, I think you are pretty much up a gum tree as there are no 64 bit drivers anywhere for anything.

Can't install my X4270 to my PC

Maybe the driver cd which you got with the printer doesn't have windows vista suppot, did you check online on for the driver. If not please goto the click on the link above. once you are on the site please choose search by model number type x4270 then the next screen would appear automaticly, select operating system as windows would see the program for install, save the file to disk and run the istallation. It would solve your problem 99.99% if still not do let me know the problem would surely help.

The drivers for Vista are included in Vista installation. This means that Vista does not need any additional software to install tthis printer.

If printer does not install automatically, then there is either a problem with Vista or a problem with the Printer.

See HP Printers - Installing the Printer Driver Located in Windows Vista
