I downloaded relevant info from HP web site and was able to install everything without the disc. And it never cost me an extra penny.

I have HP Officejet 6500 connected via USB to office desktop. I also need print from vista laptops on the same wireless network as the desktop. How do you do it ?


Hi, I just completed this same query this week.

to set up my remote network i followed promts from windows and then had to run my windows xp startup disc on my vista laptop.

After that was complete i had to install the hp printer setup cd onto my vista laptop and connect the hp printer to my router using the ethernet cable. I followed the prompts on the vista as the cd continued to install. then at the end of it all it showed i had correctly installed the printer via wireless and asked me to do a practice print which i did and all seems fine.

I can now print from my vista laptop and my windows xp desktop. I hope this helps

HP photosmart used to print wirelessly from my Vista loaded laptops. printer was usb connected to desktop with XP. Had to get new hd and reload with XP for desktop and now cannot configure for wireless...


As your printer is not wireless itself I assume you shared the printer. To enable this again goto Control Panel on your desktop, select printers, right click your printer and there should be an option for sharing. Enable sharing.
Now using your Vista laptops you should connect to your home network (in your case this is probably a wireless router, as long as your desktop is connected to this router too), goto Control Panel, printers, add printer, search for printer not connected to this copmputer (or network printer).
Hopefully the Vista laptops will then pick it up and install it correctly. You may be asked to install the correct driver for the vista machines. Windows should provide you with instructions on how to do this.
Hope this helps,www.PuterCare.com

Had a hard drive failure and have lost the instalation disc. Now have new laptop, but cannot load the printer!


You can download the printer driver from the Canon WEB site support download page. You need to select your printer model and the XP or Vista driver version.

Trying to install my software disc into my new computer but it wont let me install it its vista old one ws xp


If the disc was for xp it won't work in vista you need a vista disc or run it in compatable mode and see if it works, it should or go to hp.com and download the correct driver for the printer when using vista. This is free at hp.com

Can no longer fax or scan


got to control panel and uninstall all the applications and drivers related to your printer in the machine running vista. Then place the printer installation CD came with your printer in the CD drive. Now just connect your printer to machine and switch it on. Vista should display new Hardware connected or any other sound alert acknowledging that printer is connected to your machine. If it prompts for driver installation, select it to search for drivers automatically. Before that make sure that your printer installation cd is in drive. Vista will automatically search for the drivers and installs it. If it's not, then the cd came with your printer may not have drivers for vista. go to HP website and download driver for vista and install it.

Printer (922) won't install on new laptop


If your laptop is running Vista and your old desktop was running XP and the disk you got with your printer had drivers that worked with XP and Vista is not listed on them, it would be a case of incompatibility. You would need to go to the Dell website to download updated drivers for Vista if they are not of the standard Vista driver package. (The driver model changed between XP and Vista making XP drivers incompatible with Vista.)

Can I use my Kodak 5300, installed as my network printer on a desktop running Windows XP with my new laptop running Vista? If so, do I run the install disk (with Vista drivers) on the laptop or what?


you should be able to as long as there are Vista drivers available.

make sure you first share your printer from the desktop it is attached to. then on the Visa laptop try to Add Printer choosing network printer (as opposed to local printer) and browse for the shared printer. Vista should tell you it has to install software so allow it to. Have the disk ready (does it have Vista drivers on it do you know?).

Word of caution: Vista's a little quirky with networked printers so you may have to delete the printer on the laptop and add it back if it doesn't work the first time (I had to do that even though all machines involved were Vista :/ ).

Cheers.

Obviously you have already tried to without success or else you would not be posting to this site. The answer is two-fold unfortunately. Sometimes manufactures cannot keep up with tech changes in OS and there is a driver update lag. If you did try to no avail, it means the install disc/driver is not updated enough to be compatable with vista. You have two choices. Run xp on your laptop instead of vista or go to Hewlett Packard web sit (google it) and go to download section. Download the update driver that is vista compatable if there is one available. Now, install the printer on you laptop using this new driver. Back it up on disc to avoid losing it and having to download it again.
