Hi Judi,
I'm not sure but if I remember correctly the Hp F380 is a 3 in 1. I have used similar models. But did you install something like this

Wirelessly connect to hp deskjet f380 printer

This model printer only has USB printer connection and it cannot be connected to a wireless network directly.
If you have a wireless router then you can connect a print server to this HP printer and then connect the print server to the wireless router. This will allow you to print wirelessly yo the HP printer when you configure the printer server and configure the printer driver in the computers to connect to the printer port IP address of the print server.

I have all in one printer F380,it is not installed

If you check the CD that came with F380 printer you will most likely find out that it is specifically for Xp and not Vista. If that is the case it is not likely to install properly on a Vista system. so you need to download the Vista version. Got to  to download the Vista version and install to your Vista laptop.

HP Deskjet F380 All-in-One Compatible with vista

I had the same problem. I could print, but not scan.

However, if you open up Paint and go to file and scan, it will scan your document. For some reason, using the scan button on the printer itself will not work with Vista, but using Paint will. I also heard that using Windows fax and scan will also work.
good luck
