Many drivers that were supported by X are not supported by Vista. Suggestion to solve this and the numerous problems you will encounter is to revert to XP. Untill then, do the following.



Remove printer
1. Click the "Start" button, type PRINTER in the search box and press Enter.
2. Find the icons which are related to HP LaserJet 2100, and delete them.
3. Right-click on the blank part of the window, and choose "Run as administrator"->"Server Properties".
4. On the Drivers tab, select the listed printer and click the Remove button. Please then select Remove driver and driver package.
5. Open Start menu, input APPWIZ.CPL in the Search box and press ENTER to launch "Programs and Features".
6. Try to remove all related printer software.
Then, please download the latest drivers from the following website and install.

If the above steps do not work, please follow the steps below to clear Printing Subsystem and reinstall the driver again.
Click "Start", type "regedit" in Research Bare and press "Enter". Browse to the following registry key by clicking the PLUS (+) sign:

Click the PLUS (+) sign to expand "Version-3". All printer drivers which have been installed on your computer will be listed there. Please right click each subkey in it on the left pane and click "Delete".

Step 3:
===============================

Standard TCP/IP Port
USB Monitor

If there are any subkeys other than the subkeys that are listed above has to be deleted. To do this, right-click each subkey that is not on the list, and then click Delete. Click Yes when you are prompted to confirm the deletion.

Step 4:

Go to safe mode.

Go to the Following folder
(i) C:\Windows\System32\spool\prtprocs\w32x86

Can i install the HP Deskjet 6122 on a brandnew HP Laptop with vista OS?


"Add a printer" in "My Computer"/"Printers" or "Control Panel"/"Printers". The 6122 will print from the HP 920, 930, 932, 940 & 950 drivers also - (which are included with your Windows XP and Vista systems). If you chose the 970 driver it will want a second sheet of paper to print a test page, which you can ignore and it will stop trying. All drivers seem to be the same print quality in my systems. I do not use the 970 or 6122 driver at all so I don't have an ink level monitor or any possible related potential glitch. I wet and slap stubborn old ink cartridges to un-stick dry jets. sometimes I use a small clear silicone tube to suck a bit of ink to get them started as the jet holes need priming sometimes if they are old.

Go there and try download the Drivers and Utility for the 64-bit Version of Vista. Pretty bad that HP's own website has the info you need, yet they say it won't work.
