Connecting Toshiba laptop using windows vista to C7180

I am trying to connect a new Toshiba laptop which uses windows vista to an existing all in one printer currently set up to work wirelessly with a PC using XP. When trying to add the printer to the laptop, the printer's address appears, but the when trying to complete the installation, the printer's model is not on the list of supported printers. Have tried using the installation disk ( as per the laptop's instructions), have downloaded updates to the laptop, but cannot connect to the printer. Please if you can help.

Hi there i know that HP are updating a lot of the drivers at the moment you could try the following websites (Free download) (Small charge)

I hope one of those helps but also try the XP driver as may vista might work on XP driver technology.

Thanks J

I have a new laptop but when printer ( P4350 ) was connected to it imagining studio did not download so all I can do is print from screen or copy

Download and install the Lexmark P4350 updated driver from the Lexmark website. Select the version of your operating system to download the file. NOTE: Use Vista driver in Windows 7. You may need to uninstall the existing driver first before download the new driver.

I have C7180 All-In-One printer, connected to Pavilion Media Center CPU, m8100y, w/ Vista Home Premium Edition X32. The printer no longer recognizes Toshiba digital camera chip. Printer works OK, but COPY...

Hello there.

First of all i would try a newer version of the drivers as you are using Windows Vista. Please click here and download the 'HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers". While this is quite a big download, it contains the necessary drivers and software for use on Vista.

Please try this and if you still cannot COPY, get back to us.

Hope this helps.

Please help me. I have a Toshiba Satellite L355D-S7825 Laptop with Vista. Can you Pleaseinstruct me on how to set up my Epson Stylus C84 printer---express Code 70445

The driver is included in your OS. If doing a wired connection, just plug the data cable into the printer. Then follow the on-screen commands (New Hardware Found Wizard). If that doesn't launch, click Start > Control Panel > Printer (under Hardware and Sound). Click Add A Printer to launch the wizard. (If you do not see this command, right click in the Printer Window and you should find it.) Select Use Existing Port, Next, Epson and Stylus C84 in manufacturer and model, Next. Then Set As Default printer if desired and Next. Then you can print a test page and Finish. (If you are using a print server or other type of networked printer, use the Add a Printer Wizard from the Printer window but choose Network.)

Ink levels available through the Printer Properties. Epson Easy Print is available for Vista here: .

I hope this helps.

(problems with print servers can due to OS incompatibility or bad cables. Replace cables when any printer problem occurs intermittently.)

You need to completely remove all drivers pertaining to this printer. Reboot your computer after removing them and then reinstall the latest driver according to the directions for it.
