The drivers on the HP CD are probably not compatible with Vista.

Computer does not recgonize my hp printer, running windows vista home edition 32-bit oprerating system


firstly:
  • have you installed the driver for the HP printer,if not do so.
  • is the HP printer Vista compatible, it should say in the literature that came with it .if its an older printer probably not compatible.
  • follow the installation directions fully ( plug the usb cable in when it asks for it etc).
  • use a different usb cable as it may be faulty.
  • check the usb port with another item such as a memory stick to ensure it is working or use another port.
  • remove any printers installed prior to trying to install HP printer and reboot the system.
hope this is of help to you

Tools->Disable UAC) for the time being is recommended, Of course, it can be safely re-enabled after
all steps have been performed
