I don't know how to get my scanner to work with my computer. Its an hp Pavilion computer and a Canon MP530.

When you boot up your computer the operating system is displayed as a huge colourful Icon. It may be Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or even Windows 98 or Windows Me. That is the OS or operating system you are running. we know you are using a Canon MP530 scanner so we just need to know what OS you are using so we can download the soltware you need to install it. hp Pavilion

I went to the cannon website but I don't know  the type of printer it is. Your solution is to download and install the print driver that matches the new operating system VISTA? tha tthe new computer has.

Bought new computer with windows vista, my printer [deskjet f380] is not compatable with vista,any thing i can do,or will i need a new one.

Hi! Windows sometimes offer a compatability issue report and should direct you to the site where Vista related drivers can be installed, if not try Hp's website support/downloads for Vista compatability issues. I'm sure if the printer isn't too old then your luck may be in and you'll get the required driver/s.
I hope this helps!

Although the original poster mentioned networking he/sredm.gifhe also seemed to be asking about HP all-in-one issues in general and Vista compatibility. Networking, scanning, copying and printing can have seperate and integrated issues to varying degrees. This may not just be a scanner networking general query.

In my case I downloaded and installed the additional bundled software per HP's advice while trying to get the scanner to scan at the dpi level advertized for the unit. Neither Vista or HP had drivers that worked unless I installed the package. Low resolution scanning worked fine as well as the copying and printinting features. I rarely need such high scanning options but it should have worked as advertized since it was sold by an HP distributor as Vista compatible.

The downloaded AIO did allow higher resolution when scanning but caused other NON-NETWORKING issues. My computer is not networked. There is also the issue of the scan button on the printer not working with Vista. It does work with pre-Vista. Again not a network issue but a driver issue with Vista.

Taken from the MHTML file from the unit software found after the purchase......

HP Printers - The Scan Button on the Printer Does Not Work Correctly When the Printer is Connected to a Windows Vista Computer

When the scan button is pressed on the printer, nothing happens. The scan button does not work correctly.

Scan documents using Windows Fax and Scanning or Paint.

The drivers in the Windows Vista operating system do not support button press functionality on the printer. END EXERPT.

Button functionality. DPI resolution. There are driver issues with some of the HP units and Vista. Not just networking issues.

In my opinion these issues should have been fully disclosed prior to purchase or functional Vista drivers should be an option. Therefore I offer the warning that Vista may have issues with this and other software and hardware.

I only speak of non-networking issues but either way a unit should work as advertized or sold. My comments are based on my personal experience with one unit in this particular situation. After all Vista is fairly new to most of us.

False Paper Jam



My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to Paper Jam error messages even though there is no paper jam in printer . I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.


This issue could happen if there is an issue with any small paper jam in the Printer, or due to the communicational issue .


To isolate the issue, I recommend you to perform below steps.


Steps are:



1. Power OFF printer and then please Disconnect the Printer from Computer and then disconnect the Power cable of Printer from wall outlet.


2. Check thoroughly in Printer that there is no small piece of paper in the Printer.


3. Let the Printer be disconnected and idle for 5 minutes.


Meanwhile please perform further steps on Computer.


  Note: The below steps are applicable if you are using WINDOWS 2000/XP/VIsta Operating system in  your PC


  Steps are:


 Perform the below steps to restart the print spooler :

1. Click Start>Run

2. Type services.msc

3. Click OK

4. A Window will pop up with so many services listed.

5. Scroll down to locate "print spooler" in the list, right click on it and click "Restart"

6. Restart the Computer.


Once if you are done with steps, please connect the Printer and then Power ON Printer and check the issue.


This should resolve the issue for you.


 If you need any further assistance on the issue, you can mail me at . I'll be glad to help you.
