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.
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.
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. hp drivers and downloads Microsoft support
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.
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.
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.
