Question about HP Deskjet F4180 All-in-One InkJet Printer

HP Printer F4180 will not work on new Vista OS

Just purchased a new gateway pc with the Vista Premium Home Edition OS. I was told that my Lexmark all in one printer would not work with Vista since it was from 2004 and Lexmark doesn't have an updated driver. I purchased an HP deskjet F4180 all in one printer. I followed the CD install directions, it did not work, I receive an install error that the driver is not found. I contacted HP and they told me to Update Windows and then download the driver from their site. I did all that that and It still doesn't work. I turned off my anti virus software, still did not work. I uninstalled the printer and rebooted my system. I tried this 7 times and it still will not find the driver. Does anyone have any suggestions on this? Or should I exchange for another printer.

You could try removing the DSL from the router and running the HP Installer again. Sometimes the filtering can interfere with the router's communication between the computer and the printer.

Otherwise, I would recommend getting one of their printers that has an ethernet port for wired connect (will scan this way; printers won't with USB connect to router) or a wireless 802.11 radio.

How can I print to my HP Color LaserJet 3550 from my Windows 7 Home Premium OS Toshiba Satellite C655 Laptop. The printer works, but HP says there are no drivers to support it. How can this be? Please...


If Hp does not have a drivr to support it then you are out of luck unless you find someone that hacked drivers to work with it. If they have Windows Vista drivers, you can try those but they are not goign to guarantee to work.

not all equipment from Xp works with vista or 7. Xp is not the same OS or even same breed as Vista/7

HP Compac with Vista Home Premium & Lexmark X5150 All-in-One


Do not install any extra drivers. Vista is supposed to have the driver for this printer. Just plug in and let the system add this hardware thru add printer option. Keep it connected to the the net, have some patience, it will resolve the problem itself. If you interfere or try to refresh then it might just hang and not recognize the printer at all unles the registry is thorougly clead And the folder is deleted from My Programs on C drive. Its a bit dicey if it does not sucessfully install by itself due to interference. The only way out is either have a good registry editor or repair the OS installation once....sodeep

Lexmark X5070m for Windows vista


I have Windows Vista Home Premium and I am thinking about getting one of the X5070m printers. I talked to my computer repair tech first to get his opinion and he told me to load the program disc first and follow the step by step instructions and NOT to connect the printer until it tells you to. So yes, uninstall and reinstall the program and follow the above and you should be set. If not...let me know before I buy one too.
