Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Installing Printer Hi, I have 2 computers at work and I moved the Photosmart C3180 over to a different one and I can't seem to install it. I don't have the installation cd, but I figured the computer would just recognize it, but it's not. This specific printer doesn't show up in manual installation either. Any ideas on what I could do?

Re: Installing Printer

You can download the drivers from HP's website. It's usually a more recent driver than the one shipped with the printer anyway.
After downloading, turn off the printer and run the driver program. When it tells you, or after it's done, turn the printer on. It should be a few moments and the printer will be ready to go.

good luck!

I have a cd for hp photosmart c3180 for windows xp but every time I try to install it, I keep on getting an installation error message msi.docproc

I had the same issue with my HP printer but a different model #. Try inserting the installation CD and then close any window it pops up, if it pops up. Go to My Computer and then right click on the CD and go to browse. Look for the install file that should called Setup or named something else but ends with .exe and double click it. If you're not seeing it then go to the link below and try downloading and installing the software. Click on the link, click on Driver - Product Installation Software, and click on HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Driver and follow the promps.

Problem with install of hp C3180 printer to acer aspire

You probably have a bad driver or disk. Your best bet is to use the following link:
Scroll down to the bottom and click download. It asks you for your email to send a link. Once it downloads you may need to unzip it (I would put it in it's own folder). Make sure you choose to download to your desktop so you can find it. Then go to your printers folder and "add printer" and when the option appears choose "Have Disk" and point it to the folder you created. If this driver is not good I would go to the HP site and search for the driver there. I hope this helps.

Hp Photosmart c3180 Recovery Plug-in missing on vista

Hi I had the same problem for a week as I had rebooted my computer - I had been conversing with HP support for a week and still could not get it to work. Yesterday I got advice that worked....if you installed internet explorer 8 on your laptop uninstall it in add/remove programs (control panel) then make sure you have all open windows close and go to "start" > "run" and type %temp% press "ctrl" + "a" and delete all temp files. Then restart cpmuter and try installing the hp software again. Any problems let me know.
