    Thank you, Ginko, for such a speedy reply. I am currently downloading the driver from the site you indicated. It is a 46 Mb file so will take me about 6-7 hrs with dial-up at 26.4 Kb/s. I live in the country so until I can afford a sattelite dish to get a faster connection I am stuck with this...LOL. You mentioned the 64 bit system and yes, the systemis supposed to be 64 but is running system32. It came with AMD 64 Live dual Processor. I tried re-installing software but it remained the same. I did do a file tranfer from old XP puter to new Vista, Could that have done it ?? This first time I have used the file transfer, so I do not know. I am a hardware tech not soft ware. I like building and updating puters. My first was an 8088 with 10 meg HD and 624 Kb memory, boy was it fast...LOL. I will let you know after I finish download and Thanks again. Sorry, long winded.

Try downloading the latest drivers for Vista from lexmark website here: http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:439:0:0 . if you have vista 64 you may need specifics drivers for vista 64.

good luck

My HP Photo smart Premium All in one printer C309a won't scan directly from the printer itself. I upgraded from Vista 64 bit to Windows 7 64 bit and I tried downloading the drivers but it gives me an error...


If you have the Win7 full-feature driver installed, try installing the Software Patch. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-77751-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&os=4063&product=3737195

If you managed to get the minimal driver set or the OS driver, uninstall that and disconnect the printer from the computer and install the full featured software
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=4063&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3737195

If you can't download the full file and get an installation error from an incomplete file due to connection errors, the link to the full software above also has a link to order a new CD with the drivers.

Sometimes the scan error (when the printer itself works) indicates that the HP monitor isn't running (due to incomplete install or turning off the program (not letting it run at boot, for example). The other cause is a poor connection since scanners need bi-directional communication with the computer. Try a new data cable, plugging into a different port. If you have a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.

I hope this helps.

Instal only one printer driver on the PC it is physically connected to. Preferably the Windows 7 PC (Latest OS). Unshare the printer, remove drivers from other PC's., then reboot al PC,s and re-share the printer. The PC's sharing should allow the Windows 7 PC to use it's driver, although they may request a disc for basic information about the printer.

Can't define custom paper size on HP2600n after Vista upgrade


Went to HP support web site and found the following info. The HP drivers link will take to their download site If you haven't installed the Vista Print drivers yet.

Our church bought new computers with Vista Busines two years ago and after struggling with it for 6 months went back XP Pro. This was before any Vista service packs had been released so I'm not sure if these issues have improved. We are in no hurry to upgrade to Vista. Some articles I've read about 6 months ago recommended waiting for windows 7. I haven't followed how the release of windows 7 is going. Vista is a VERY DIFFERENT ANIMAL and can be frustrating. Been there and I feel your pain.

I have a dell 946 all in one printer... everything works but the scanner... I just purchased a new computer that has vista and my old computer had xp... worked fine on old puter... any suggestions


You need a new driver from Dell that funtions with Vista. If you have Vista X64 OS then this function may not be available for a while longer as the driver for the scanner is still in development. There is a significant difference between a 32-bit and 64-bit OS.

I'm running into networking problems with my Vista X64 OS and a printer on my home network that connects through XP Pro on a desktop computer with a 32-bit OS.

A Windoze Vista 32-bit laptop has no problems with this printer.

Network x86 driver support on Vista 64 bit OS (Samsung Ml-2510)


That's right. You'll have to install the XP driver on an XP PC, and share it to the other XP machines that way, or Install the driver on each PC individually -you can't share a Vista driver with XP PC's.

Not able to install HP photosmart2570 series software on to my new computer with vista home premium


your hp photosmart 2570 printer driver is not compitable with vista drivers so its not getting loaded.as the printer is old and the vista is new.the printer will work properly with ---xp---98----and other windows operating systems.this is always a problem for the vista users as the printer does not get loaded.so you can call either hp to provide you a compitable driver cd of your printer to be loaded on vista.or you can call vista to upgrade your sytem by providing you a compitable driver cd.after that your printer will get installed and detected.

rate the solution if it helps you.
thanks.

What is this


if you are doing a clean XP install the CD will ask if you if you want to change your partitions.Afterwards it will automatically format the hard drive.Some of the OS discs dont come with drivers you will have to hunt for them on the internet.If you are using a restore disc copyied from a working machine it should have generic drivers already loaded in the disc.
