Question about HP Printers & Copiers
Software won't install trying to hook up c3100 to dell vista home premium inspiron 531
Make sure that java, direct X, and .NET components are up to date. Many installers not require these.
If the install just can't see the printer, I would completely uninstall any components you were able to get installed (if any), remove the device entirely from your system, download a Vista version of the driver from HP if possible, and run the setup.exe...If your using a system driver you'll have to hook the printer up first, otherwise when it asks you to attach the printer then hook it up in a different USB port.
If all else fails install the drive manually through the control panel using Add Harware and then browse for the INF file.
