Many people had a similar problem with the Color Inkjet cp1700 B-size printer.

Another solution that worked for some people was installing the hp deskjet 9800 printer driver.
It appears what you need is a patched .gpd file for the BI 2800. Try emailing Bob Headrick, who has done these patches. (Thanks Bob)!
Be sure to put Vista and Large Format Printing 11x17 in the subject line.

You'd think between HP and MS, they'd have this working right out of the box.
Did they think people would buy a B-size printer so they could hook it
up to Vista and then not want to print mainly B-size documents?
They would have had happier customers if they would have included B-size support but left out A-size!
Make sure you have all of the critical and important patches for both your operating system and MS Office/Outlook. If you continue having these problems after being fully patched, go to the Add/Remove Programs (XP and earlier) or Programs and Features (Vista) applet. Select MS Office (if you have the full Office installation) or MS Outlook (if you have the standalone Outlook installation). In Vista, select Change otherwise select Uninstall (which should open a dialog offering to Repair or Uninstall the application(s)). Select Repair and click Next to let it do its thing. A reboot may be required when it has completed its work. You also may need to reapply service packs and patches so make sure you visit Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and/or the Office Update websites as soon as possible.
For windows Vista; it is imperative to run the Vista patch which can be found on the Dell website (Downloads and drivers). Make sure that you run the patch, after removing the printer USB cable from the computer. Restart the computer as the patch suggests and then install the Vista specific drivers, which also need to be downloaded from Dell Website. Again, do not connect the printer unless the installation software asks you to. For scanner issues, those who are unable to get anything scanned to their computer, and are able to print, it is essentialy a Firewall/Anti-virus issue. You can check that out by trying to scan using an application such as MSPaint (Start> type 'mspaint' > hit enter).
Go to the hpoffice jet all-in-one website and do a search for vista drivers.
The 'Google Toolbar' can help in this, use the icon next to the Google search-box GO button, it looks like a magnifying glass with a googly eye in it.
Then you can "Search only on..." (whatever website you are currently on).
