Hi, there seems to be several posts regarding this. And microsofts new wonderful Vista operating system.
If your printer came with installation ( setup ) disks. i,d re-install them. also try to see if you can see the printer being recognised by the system/device manager. or go to add new hardware wizard. and see if the computer finds the printer. if it does, it will ask you for a suitable device driver. ensure your printer cd is in the drive D;- Or E:- and hopefully it should select the correct driver to install your printer. if you have a USB Printer Cable, an icon should appear at the bottom r/h side of screen. stating that a USB Device has been found. double click for options to install drivers. if non of this works. check that your printer is Windows vista Compatable.
Hope this is a point in the right direction.
Mike @ Compurepair.

Can I use my Kodak 5300, installed as my network printer on a desktop running Windows XP with my new laptop running Vista? If so, do I run the install disk (with Vista drivers) on the laptop or what?


you should be able to as long as there are Vista drivers available.

make sure you first share your printer from the desktop it is attached to. then on the Visa laptop try to Add Printer choosing network printer (as opposed to local printer) and browse for the shared printer. Vista should tell you it has to install software so allow it to. Have the disk ready (does it have Vista drivers on it do you know?).

Word of caution: Vista's a little quirky with networked printers so you may have to delete the printer on the laptop and add it back if it doesn't work the first time (I had to do that even though all machines involved were Vista :/ ).

Cheers.

Additionally, Vista has what is called User account conrol (UAC) interface. This will start the installation program without administrator privileges.

Old hp printer won't print anything with new hp desktop computer


Your PC has VISTA loaded (according to the HP web specs)

This printer has no specific driver for VISTA but basic functionality is supported by VISTA without the need to load a seperate driver.

refer HERE

The printer connects via a USB cable to the PC and should be detected automatically by VISTA whe the printer is turned on.

The original CD would have drivers for an earlier vesrion of windows (98 or XP) so you should uninstall any programs that were installed offthe disk.

Post back results or further questions for more assistance

Lexmark 4270 will not install


I believe this will fix it for you as it did for me. I have a Lenovo laptop that updated from XP to Vista and the Lexmark 4200 X4270 All in One Printer would not print or scan. I had to do the following:
1. Delete all printers in control panel.
2. Do full update with Vista install disk
3. Make sure cable to Lexmark is not attached to Laptop until Vista does full update
4. Download the updated Lexmark Driver for whichever version of Windows you are running from the link provided below.
5.Install item in #4
6. Plug in cable to Lexmark and put the Lexmark SW installation disk in and it should finish itself for you.
