HP Photosmart C5180 All-in-One

My printer is about 18 months old. When I bought it my Computer was Windows XP. I have another computer now which is Windows Vista. My disc for the printer is not compatable with the computer and I have a problem trying to get my printer to work, how do I do this? I thought I had to download something to do with drivers for my Vista it was working for a while but I had to take my computer back to the original settings and have therefore lost being able to work with my printer. Can you tell me how to solve this please?

    Windows Vista is blocking my startup for my HP scanner and fax. My scanner works but sends the message "An error occurred while communicating with the scanning device." What do I do?

Hi,

Yeah, i assume that since you restore your computer to previous settings, the Software installed in your computer will no longer be there. However, to make your printer work again with windows Vista, you need to download the full feature software and drivers.

Below is the link where you can choose different operating systems, including Vista so that you download the Software.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=1153481&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1153481

Just copy and paste the link on the address bar, and it will bring you directly to the page where you need to select first your operating system. Afterwards, please make sure that you gonna select the "HP Photosmart Full Feature SOftware and drivers" under Drivers page.

Installing the SW and printer driver is just very easy, just read the Installation Wizard and your good to go!

Please give me feedback regarding the outcome of the steps i mentioned.

Thank you so much

Verify that you are connected to the correct network - check the SSID of your modem or router. Then verify that the printer is connected to that SSID as well. Check to make sure you have the correct network access number - sometimes an incorrect value gets entered. Once you've established the connection, check each computer for the printer connection of the C5180. They should say "ready" or "online" in the computers for the C5180 - reboot the computers if not.

Hello

I believe you are misunderstanding it. The old disc is the software and driver for windows XP.

You will need to go onto the HP support website and look up your printers model number. You will be able to download the latest driver for Vista for no cost.
