    I had the same issue with 825c, the only solution could be to use HP 815c driver. You can choose it if you had already installed the xp driver before too. Go to Control panel and printers than right click on your 825c, go to properties and special settings and change your driver to 815c.

    Hope it can help to you .

What a great idea Marc! It worked!
"Hi, I just resolved the same problem. I installed from the VISTA preinstalllation list of printers the driver and files for the HP 830C/832C printer. The "install a new printer" on the control panel-printers page shows it on the list. After installation I went to the 830C/832C printer properties and selected it to be located in the USB virtual printer port where my 825C was connected (select any USB it does not matter). Now the VISTA believes that you have a 830C/832C printer on the USB and prints perfectly with this setup on the 825C.

Bye, Marc

Hi, welcome to FixYa.

Most printer do want you to install their driver first BEFORE you plug it into your computer.
In the middle of installing the driver, usually there is an instruction to plug your printer.
This is must be understand, since this is most failure in printer driver installation.

Hi there,

If you have installed the drivers from a cd on vista, try to uninstall them again and reboot the computer and connect the printer.

The good news is that your Canon iP8500 printer is Windows Vista compatible. Driver page for them is here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=357&modelid=10440

More good news, the Epson Perfection 1650 scanner is also compatible with Windows Vista.

It would also appear that your HP Laser Jet 5mp printer is compatible with Windows Vista:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=25481&prodNameId=15013&swEnvOID=2093&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=lj-44462-1

Whether or not to get a Dell or HP is a preference thing. The biggest thing you have to ask yourself is, how much are you wanting to spend on a new system? Both vendors are fairly comparable as far as hardware and support. The biggest thing I should mention is that, ensure that when you buy your system, to tell whomever you are buying it from that you need Windows Vista 32 bit. Not all of your components were compatible with Vista 64 bit.
Best of Luck and hope you have lots of fun with your new system!

Need to use officejet 1175C printer with my computer with window vista and cannot find dowloads for it


Unfortunately this is a big problem with Microsoft Vista in my opinion, is it's lack of hardware support.

HP does not make a Vista driver for your printer.

Here's the link for all the drivers, Vista is not listed:

You can get a new printer for a fair price that has Vista drivers at most retailers now.
