Computer does not recgonize my hp printer, running windows vista home edition 32-bit oprerating system


firstly:
  • have you installed the driver for the HP printer,if not do so.
  • is the HP printer Vista compatible, it should say in the literature that came with it .if its an older printer probably not compatible.
  • follow the installation directions fully ( plug the usb cable in when it asks for it etc).
  • use a different usb cable as it may be faulty.
  • check the usb port with another item such as a memory stick to ensure it is working or use another port.
  • remove any printers installed prior to trying to install HP printer and reboot the system.
hope this is of help to you

I have no clue why he would give you an Epson disc. Anyway, you can download your driver from HP's Site.

1. Unplug USB cable to printer, then from Control Panel > Printers delete any printers there.
2. Reboot
3. Install new drivers from the site above.
4. Plug USB cable back in.

Enjoy

We have a new computer. We used to have our hp officejet All-in-one on our Gateway ME. We were wondering if we could install our All-in-one to our new Gateway Vista???


You'll have to go to the HP site and download the Vista drivers for that printer, but it should work. Install the software first, then plug the printer into the USB port!.

goto start, right click on my computer,go to properties, click on the tab that says hardware. once your in there you should not see any red or yellow warning signs. look for your device and if you see there is an error by it you can do a few thing. if you right click the device you can update the driver first. then reboot. if that doesnt go through the same process but uninstall the driver then reboot. Make sure that hp doesnt have an update for that printer on there website. hope it works for you.
