Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My Inspiron 531 has vista os. recently, i had to

My Inspiron 531 has vista os. recently, i had to reinstall the vista os as my boot files became corrupt. Since i reinstalled the os, i also had to reinstall all of the apps, including the HP Photosmart C5180. I am able to print but, before i reinstalled the os, i was able to see an icon (that i made as a shortcut to the desktop) that was a picture of a scanner for the HP Photosmart C5180. Now, since reinstalling the os, i can only print--i need the scanning ability as I use this often to create attachemnts that i send via email to my work. Why can't i find the icon--i looked under the control panel--was unable to see it either under the printer of scanner/cameras icon
please help as i need to be able to scan from my HP Photosmart C5180

thanks

You would need to download the software for your printer again and then install it on your computer. You can download it from here. Once it is installed, look for the scanner icon or HP Director which would have scanner icon.

Dell inspiron 531 with vista home premium, sata DVD/hdd, wont boot past bios screen, blinking cursor in top left corner. with nothing hooked up, says no boot devices available. i have tried each one solo,...


That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows or any other OS is missing . Since you are getting it without even an hdd connected it means that the southbridge is defective. Which means that the motherboard is dead, replace it.

Show a blue screen


You need to go into the Setup Utility or BIOS when the computer boots. You need to enable the computer to boot from the CD drive, and set up boot priority with CD Drive first, then Hard Drive HDD.

Then it will boot the disc.
