Re: hp photosmart printer 7660

What you might want to do if you haven't already, is make sure your OS is up to par with updates.

Here is what I suggest that you do:
1. uninstall all the driver that you installed.
2. make sure your computer is updated
3. then plug your printer into the computer via USB or Parallel Port.
4. download driver for the printer and leave it on your desktop (or where you keep your application exe's).
5. Right Click My Computer > manage > device manager > select the printer > right click then update drivers > selected "No, not at this time" Next > Install from a specific location > then select the driver that you downloaded.

this is the link for the Vista Drivers for your printer.

Cant get scanjet 2100C to work with Windows Vista

Unfortunately, HP doesn't support Vista for that scanner model.

However, some have reported success using windows 2000 drivers on Vista.

You can give the windows 2000 drivers a try here:

Be sure to unplug the scanner from the computer BEFORE installing the driver / software.
