Open clamshell, USB port is inside where the inks go to the left

Link to MANUAL

Link to VISTA DRIVER and software package, so yes it is Vistable...

Hint. Delete any previous drivers first then download and install software and drive package before hooking up to USB.

Can not find or activate comport 1 on windows Vista

Com port referes to a serial port. It looks like a monitor port only smaller. Since yuo connect via USB, it may be that the locator software is set to use Serial port or Comm Prot. See if it can be changed to USB. Perhaps load the software before or after plugin in the unit, that may make a differernce.

Computer does not recgonize my hp printer, running windows vista home edition 32-bit oprerating system

  • have you installed the driver for the HP printer,if not do so.
  • is the HP printer Vista compatible, it should say in the literature that came with it .if its an older printer probably not compatible.
  • follow the installation directions fully ( plug the usb cable in when it asks for it etc).
  • use a different usb cable as it may be faulty.
  • check the usb port with another item such as a memory stick to ensure it is working or use another port.
  • remove any printers installed prior to trying to install HP printer and reboot the system.
hope this is of help to you

New computer with Windows Vista

I have my HP OfficeJet T45xi working with Vista Ultimate. I used a cable coverter to switch to USB. I must install the printer with the USB cord unattached. Install as T40xi whose driver comes with Vista. Set to USB port 1 or 2. Plug USB into USB port 1 or 2 (only ones of six USB ports that worked for me). When Windows discovers the printer do not let it install the printer and tell it to not try again.

Works for me. Hope it helps you!

Lexmark z11 Vista Compatible?

Looks like I've cracked it [Touches wooden desk]. Need a USB to IEEE 1284 36-pin Parallel Printer Cable, like the one I received today (ordered yesterday from First, connect it to Z11. Turn on Z11 and boot up Vista PC/laptop. (I run Vista Business on my laptop.) Connect cable to computer. Message appears "Installing device driver software". Click it for status. 'Found New Hardware' box appears. Click 'Locate and install driver software'. A message appears "Error loading LXADSUI.DLL. Specified module could not be found". Click 'OK'. Message appears saying driver software installed successfully. ["Yeah, right ..."] (Have faith, folks!) Now, click Start, then Control Panel and double-click Printers. Right click on Z11 and click on Set As Default Printer. Right click on Z11 again and click on Properties. Check on Ports tab that Port USB is ticked for Z11. On Cartridge Maintenance tab, check right cartridge is showing. If not, click 'Install/Change Cartridge' and follow instructions. Then 'Clean Print Nozzles' and 'Align Cartridges'. Check settings on the other tabs in Properties look OK and try printing a test page! It looks good to me!

USB Drive

Make sure you are matching the compatibility of USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 between the devices (computer and USB devices).

USB 1.1 device will work in USB 1.1 and USB 2.0, but USB 2.0 devices will not work in USB 1.1 plug in the computer.

How many USB ports do you have in the computer? Which ones have you tried other pen drives in? List the USB ratings for each device and port in the computer to further help.

Have the other USB devices been formatted with other computers? The formatting on other systems might not be compatible.
