Hey guys,, Well you can try this and this will help(by all means it should)
restore your system to a previous date (one before you installed the printer off the xp cd)
Install the driver's using the windows vista drivers..
METHOD 2(RECOMMENDED BUT MORE DIFFICULT)
THE FIRST THING IS TO REMOVE THE OLD DRIVERS
ensure your printer is connected to your computer and the power is on
step 1.) click start / right click computer and select properties
2.) click device manager
or START / Controll panel
Click Classic View the device manager
3.) Click View then show hidden devices
4.) right click on the printer and click uninstall
5.) Unplug your printer usb from your computer
7.) INSTALL THE PRINTER WITH THE VISTA DRIVERS YOU DOWNLOADED..
ps REMEMBER NOT TO PLUG IN YOUR PRINTER UNTIL THE SETUP SOFTWARE TELLS YOU TO DO SO
BTW IF YOU CONT HAVE THE VISTA DRIVERS YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THEM FROM THE MANUFACTURES WEB SITE
let me know if you got any problems ..
