Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Without knowing the exact model of your printer, I will have to answer the question generally. Most printers will be detected by Vista, but HP printers generally require you to install the CD first and only attach the printer after the software informs you to do so. If you jump the gun and try to install the printer first, you can end up having a Vista computer that will not recognize the printer or allow it to work. If this happens you'll need to uninstall it. Most printers from several years ago simply are not Vista compatible. I have about 6 printers and they are all only 2-4 years old and they all will not work with Vista according to the HP, Epson and Canon websites. So its just a matter of having an incompatible printer. If you want to know if yours is compatible, simply go to the manufacturer's website Support page and enter in your model number and check if its compatible. If it is compatible, download their software and install it first. Also be sure to verify that your printer and cable are good by attaching it to another computer first. Also make sure your USB port is good by testing it with something else like a mouse or USB drive.
