Try plugging the printer in with no drivers and test it. This usually works as most printers do not need installation software because Vista has plug and play capabilities.

If this doesn't work, visit the HP website and choose drivers and software. Find your model number and download the Vista software or plug and play software.

    Try visiting Quickbooks website and see if they have any patches to download (under support). I think they have 2 already. This sounds like a Quickbooks issue.

Hello, I just bought a new laptop that has Windows Vista. My printer is a Hp Deskjet 5440 and it is not working. I dont think it is compatible with windows vista... is there a way to MAKE it compatible?......


HP Deskjet 5440 is compatible with 32Bit version of Windows Vista. You can check for device compatibility with Windows Vista at the link below:

You need to install the drivers for this printer to make it work with Vista. To download the updated drivers for this printer, go to the link below:

I recently bought a new Gateway computer and when I tried to install my canon printer from the disc, it would not install it for me. I have a Canon Oixma MP210 SERIES printer that I bought three months...


You might want to check Canon's website to see if they provide a downloadable driver that will make your printer Vista compatible. Years ago, I had the same problem with an Epson all-in-one when making the jump from Windows 98 to XP. I was able to download and install a driver from Epson that restored most (but not all) of the device's functions.

Installation of a downloaded driver for Lexmark X1290 All-In_One


For those of you who have downloaded the appropriate vista driver for your printer. Go to device manager on pc (control panel, hardware and devices etc) Select uninstall printer driver, as you want any old references to xp one deleted. Now, place new disc or dicc with new driver files in and your install new hardware program shopuld self start. IF not you can manually do it by going to add new hardware wizard, and select own information to suit yopur needs. But win vista should automatically find the new drivers.

Obviously you have already tried to without success or else you would not be posting to this site. The answer is two-fold unfortunately. Sometimes manufactures cannot keep up with tech changes in OS and there is a driver update lag. If you did try to no avail, it means the install disc/driver is not updated enough to be compatable with vista. You have two choices. Run xp on your laptop instead of vista or go to Hewlett Packard web sit (google it) and go to download section. Download the update driver that is vista compatable if there is one available. Now, install the printer on you laptop using this new driver. Back it up on disc to avoid losing it and having to download it again.
