Go to your printer manufacturer's web site and look for a Vista driver for your printer.

I have a HP Officejet Pro L7380 printer The Instalation CD has windows 2000, XP on it, I want to add printer to my other computer which has windows vista operating program is there a way to do this


Hi,

Here is the simple solution to your issue.

All you have to do is to visit HP web site and download the necessary driver for your pinter. So choose windows Vista (depends on your Operating system if 32 or 64 bit) then install it to your computer.

For Vista 32 bit operating system click on the link.
For Vista 64 bit operating system click on the link.

I hope this will help you resolve the issue.

thank you for choosing Fixya.

We recently installed Windows 7 onto our computer. My Canon Selphy CP760 Compact Photo Printer does now not work. What can I do about that? We previously had windows Vista.


Every time you install a new operating system, or reinstall one, you have to install the printer drivers. Printer drivers never come with the operating system files like hard drive drivers, video drivers, audio drivers, network drivers and stuff like that. OS manufacturers know that you are going to need that stuff no matter what, and for the most part, there are not that many manufacturers. But printers are different, you always have to install them. Here is the best printer driver I can find for your printer with Windows 7: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/selphy_compact_photo_series/selphy_cp760#DriversAndSoftware

Please note: This is a 32 bit driver (the link on the page) and Canon does not have a windows 7 - 64 bit driver yet. If you need a 64 bit driver, use the Vista 64 bit driver and install it in compatibility mode. Windows 7 compatibility mode is excellent...HP still does not have a Windows 7 driver for my printer, and I run mine off of a Vista driver and it works great. If you try to install it straight, it won't install, because most vista software is stricly Vista compatible. You have to open the folder, find the setup file that begins the install, and right click, and check compatibility options. You get a box that opens and you can check exactly what version of Vista with exactly what service pack...and be sure to check the little box that says install as administrator. If the install fails, and you can't find how to do this, do the install again...if the install fails I think it is 2 or 3 times...Windows will automatically pop up the box for you. Windows 7 is very intuitive....I LOVE IT!

Need software installation disc.


If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:PIXMA office all in one inkjet printer

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find thefile, double click on the file , then if you get in troubles,follow theinstructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
Note:some printer does notwork on Vista, if you do not find any driverdownloadfor Vistaonyourmodel page, that means your model is not Vista compatible.

HP OJ 5610 Drivers-? Can not install printer.


In this case, there's no mystery as to the cause of the problem. You will be unable to use this printer with your operating system because there are no existing print drivers that work with 64 bit Vista. Your printer will work with Windows 98, Windows 2000, and Windows XP, but not with Vista at all.

You have only two options...use a different HP printer that will work with Vista, or get a PC that has one of the supported operating systems on it and connect your current printer to that PC.

Sorry. I know this isn't the answer you were looking for, but that's the best I can do until the proper drivers become available.
