Hp printer problems with vista

My hp all-in-one printer reinstalls device driver every time I plug printer into USB port, and makes a new copy. I'm thinking it is something with vista? Any thought? I've tried reinstalling printer software.

Hello, you will need to complete the add new hardware wizard, sometimes the drivers are corrupted and the wizard ends before all installation takes place (undertaker02 this is also for you) Do this:-Log on to your computer by using an administrator account.
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
4. Locate and click the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\LPTENUM
5. Right-click the registry key, and then click Delete.
6. Under Confirm Key Delete, click Yes.
7. Close Registry Editor, and then restart your computer.
When Windows XP restarts, it will detect the printer and install support for it. After the printer is installed, it will no longer be detected each time you start Windows XP.

I would suggest two things:

1) Get a different USB device and make sure it works in the ports.

2) Make sure the USB device you want to use is recongnized on another computer. (If possible)

If you have the Vista OS that came on a USB then it is not designed to work on 1.1 USB ports but it should work on the 2.0 port.

First check the "Device Manager", for any USB Driver "errors".
There are 3 USB ports for your Laptop, check all the ports.
If you are using XP on your laptop, is your service packs up to date? For USB 2.0 port to function properly you got have to update a least Service Pack 2 for Win XP.

1. Have you check your USB port? Just plug in any USB devices eg. Flash drive, external HDD... and see whether the port detect the USB devices.

2. Is the USB cable for the Printer faulty? Try a new USB cable.

Hope it helps.

Check all connections and make sure all devices are on. To cancel printing, click the Cancel button.


... and the problem you are having is _______________________

Your Operating System is XP/Vista/7/Mac ?
Your Printer is HP? Canon ?
Model-number for the printer ?
Do other USB devices work when plugged-in to the USB port that your printer currently is using?

Vista driver for HP 825C printer


What a great idea Marc! It worked!
"Hi, I just resolved the same problem. I installed from the VISTA preinstalllation list of printers the driver and files for the HP 830C/832C printer. The "install a new printer" on the control panel-printers page shows it on the list. After installation I went to the 830C/832C printer properties and selected it to be located in the USB virtual printer port where my 825C was connected (select any USB it does not matter). Now the VISTA believes that you have a 830C/832C printer on the USB and prints perfectly with this setup on the 825C.

Bye, Marc

Hp photosmart printer 7660


what you might want to do if you haven't already, is make sure your OS is up to par with updates.

Here is what I suggest that you do:
1. uninstall all the driver that you installed.
2. make sure your computer is updated
3. then plug your printer into the computer via USB or Parallel Port.
4. download driver for the printer and leave it on your desktop (or where you keep your application exe's).
5. Right Click My Computer > manage > device manager > select the printer > right click then update drivers > selected "No, not at this time" Next > Install from a specific location > then select the driver that you downloaded.

this is the link for the Vista Drivers for your printer.
