After I purchased my HP Pavillion a1750y , I found my printer wasn't compatible . (AND I purchased both computer and printer from an HP Salesperson over the phone! Wouldn't they know it's not compatible?) Anyway I called after I couldn't get the printer to work and they sent me a disk with the right components.

Have you run the check to make sure you have the latest drivers option on the HP website. You can also download the compatible version of the HP Solution Center from the same site.

HP Photosmart C4180 scanner


Unfortunately Vista has problems with many printers. (Or maybe I should say many printers have trouble with Vista.)

HP has a work around that allows you to scan without using the Scan button. Go to:

C4180 Scan Work Around

They give you 2 options to scan using programs on your system

Thanks for using Fixya.

Cannot install printer in windows vista.


Is your printer Vista compatible?
Did you have been installed in correct way your printer?

If this it is a driver issue, try to find the right drivers for your printer (must be compatible with Vista)
Go to the website of your printer manufacturer >> www.yourprinterbrand.com >> then go to Support >> Software and drivers

And download the driver there

If your printer is not Vista compatible at this point:

1) is better to get a new printer compatible with Vista

or

2) Downgrade your OS to one compatible with your printer.



Let me know how your issue it is going....

HP PRINTER PHOTOSMART C4180 on WINDOWS VISTA


Although the original poster mentioned networking he/sredm.gifhe also seemed to be asking about HP all-in-one issues in general and Vista compatibility. Networking, scanning, copying and printing can have seperate and integrated issues to varying degrees. This may not just be a scanner networking general query.

In my case I downloaded and installed the additional bundled software per HP's advice while trying to get the scanner to scan at the dpi level advertized for the unit. Neither Vista or HP had drivers that worked unless I installed the package. Low resolution scanning worked fine as well as the copying and printinting features. I rarely need such high scanning options but it should have worked as advertized since it was sold by an HP distributor as Vista compatible.

The downloaded AIO did allow higher resolution when scanning but caused other NON-NETWORKING issues. My computer is not networked. There is also the issue of the scan button on the printer not working with Vista. It does work with pre-Vista. Again not a network issue but a driver issue with Vista.

Taken from the MHTML file from the unit software found after the purchase......

HP Printers - The Scan Button on the Printer Does Not Work Correctly When the Printer is Connected to a Windows Vista Computer

Issue
When the scan button is pressed on the printer, nothing happens. The scan button does not work correctly.

Solution
Scan documents using Windows Fax and Scanning or Paint.

Cause
The drivers in the Windows Vista operating system do not support button press functionality on the printer. END EXERPT.

Button functionality. DPI resolution. There are driver issues with some of the HP units and Vista. Not just networking issues.

In my opinion these issues should have been fully disclosed prior to purchase or functional Vista drivers should be an option. Therefore I offer the warning that Vista may have issues with this and other software and hardware.

I only speak of non-networking issues but either way a unit should work as advertized or sold. My comments are based on my personal experience with one unit in this particular situation. After all Vista is fairly new to most of us.

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
