Ummmm. Its quite expensive to do that but i suppose if you need to ten its a viable option. You could buy a cheap 32 bit machine instead or try downgrading vista.http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/1033/ordermedia/default.mspx This may help you if you retail bought the machine.

This article may be of some help. There is a command prompt command that will rebuild the WMI repository. It may fix your issue.

Try this Go to start control panel System,Hardware,Device Manager,find the plus sign by the imaging devices (or Printers) click to expand ,find your printer, click properties,click roll back driver.If that fails use system restore to restore to an earlier date when things worked fine.Good Luck.

SR2180NX has the Vista 32Bit OS from HP. The restore partition will always put Vista 32Bit back on if you use it. Windows XP can only be put on from scratch and I have done it while I still have Vista installed. One problem: there are no XP drivers under SR2180NX webpages. Do your research on the parts that are installed in the 2180 and any other HP machines that have the Windows XP operating system as the OEM OS. But First, check the Intel Site for the 945 chipset drivers (include the SouthBridge, too) under XP. Get them downloaded to a CD and burn the rest of the drivers you find for XP on the same CD. This way, you will have them ready when you are performing the down-grade to windows xp. After you are done with the XP install, you will still have access to the files & work you had done while in Vista. The Vista files are still readable. You might want to consider getting the Windows 7 Professional (not basic) available October 22, 2009. AND you will still have to get the Intel Downloads for Win7 any way, so why not make it a project and make it last for a few years. XP Support stops in 2014.
