Hi Nibber,

There is no need to install the printer software in Windows Vista.
You have built in drivers for most of the HP printers in Vista.
Just connect the printer and restart the PC.
Make sure that you are in Administrative mode.
You should not be in Guest Account or Limited User Account.
Try to print from Notepad

Press and Hold Windows key + R
You will see a Run box.

In the Run box type notepad and press enter.

This will open Notepad.
Type some lines and click on file
Print

Else try these steps.

Click on start >> Printer and Faxes >> Click on Add a printer >> Next >> Select Local printer and click on next >> Find printer in the directory >> Next >> Find printer Now >> Select your printer and click on Next >> Next >> finish

Then try printing

Printer Hp 5650 was on the computer but was not the default printer. Trying to get it started on computer but can't seen to get it to work. I don't have the CD. Help


Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Printers
With the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button, click on the HP printer.
Click "Set as default printer".

From the manufacturer's web-site:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=304445

you can download the same drivers that are on the "missing" CD-ROM.

I want a software for my printer.


No Problem! Just go to HP.com/Support and download it.

There is one thing, however. You must get THE software for YOUR Deskjet. HP lists four different models for the Deskjet 5650 series. The 5650, the 5650w, the 5652, and the 5655. The software MAY, be the same for all models of this series, but I don't take chances, and give erroneous information.
Viewing the Deskjet from the front, the model number is on the lower right side.

Here is HP.com/Support, the page for the Deskjet 5650 Color Inkjet series, and the specific page that you choose which model you have,
http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_lang=en&h_cc=us&cc=us&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_query=Deskjet+5650&submit.x=3&submit.y=2

I'm going to click on the top model listed, HP Deskjet 5650 Color Inkjet Printer,
as an example.
Now click on the -> Software & Driver downloads heading.
Now choose which Operating System you are using.
I see they only have the Diagnostic Utility available, if you are using Windows Vista.
If you are using Windows XP, they have the full software package available.

Can not install hp deskjet 5650 with Vista operating system?


Drivers for this printer are already pre-installed with Vista.

Power down your PC.
Plug in the printer (wall and PC).
Startup PC - Vista will install the drivers and printer automatically.

HP PSC 1510 Vista issues


what happens whenever you are trying to scan.... any error message or any error number?

try scanning from the printer to the computer using the scan to option on the front panel of the printer.

try scanning from hp solution center installed in your computer.

try scanning from mspaint. to do so, open paint and click on "file-->from scanners and camera".

how did you installed the driver. have you got the correct cd to install the printer in windows vista???

if not that may be the problem. the printer can print and copy well as you are having the drivers which will work in win vista. but for the scanning functionality you need to get the cd to install the printer in windows vista. you can download it online.

the above link will help yu to download the win vista software and drivers for this particular printer.

Thanks and regards
