Need more information...

  1. Is this a new laptop?
  2. What version of Vista are you using?
  3. What type of network are you attaching to?

In actuality, a move from XP Professional to Vista Home for example is, from a licensing perspective, a down-grade. Microsoft in their supreme wisdom have removed many of the file sharing features from all "Home" editions of XP and Vista which will prevent you from attaching to printers and devices operating on a domain or even certain workgroups. If this is a new OEM laptop, you may need to pay several hundred dollars to upgrade to Business Ed. or Ultimate Vista. Which will add back the features XP Professional gave you for free.

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

Want to share 922all in one on xp desktop with laptop using Vista


I have a network running both an XP computer & a Vista computer. What I had to do after connecting them both to the router was make an internet connection with 1 computer, turn on the printer so everything the network was going to share was powered on; then run the network wizard on both computers. Once I did this the computer that the printer is not physically connected to installed the printer driver. Once this entire process was completed we had internet on both computers as well as both computers being able to send jobs to the same printer. Has worked great for over a year. Hope this helps you out.

Vista & Xp on same printer


You need to download the drivers from HP website for VISTA.
If you wish to work printer in networking then you can also add printer in the Laptop by that method.
Let me know more how you need to go for ( since if your XP is a desktop, then I would recommend you to keep the printer connect with it directly and just use a LAN cable for your Laptop.)

I have a hp deskjet f2180 all in one printer scanner copier we have tried to add to my lap top but the lap top does not recognise the hp deskjet f2180 and we dont know what else is compatable with


What operating system are you running on your laptop? This model only supports Windows 2000/XP/Vista and Mac OS/X. Make sure you have installed the printer USB drivers (included on the printer software CD) first. If you are connecting the printer directly to the laptop, all you should then need to do is connect the printer to the mains power, turn it on, and connect the USB cable between the printer and the laptop. If you are connecting to a printer that is connected to another computer, you mus make sure printer sharing is enabled on the computer the printer is physically connected to.

I may be able to provide a better solution if you can provide more information on your Laptop operating system and how the printer will be connected.

Network printe on vista


Accessing a Shared Printer To access a shared printer from a computer running Windows Vista, do the following:
  1. Click Start, and then click Network. The Network window displays a list of computers in the workgroup of the computer.
  2. Double-click the name of the computer containing the shared printer that you want to access.
  3. Right-click the shared printer that you want to access, and then click Connect. Alternately, you can double-click on Printers to see just the list of shared printers, and then right-click the shared printer that you want to access, and then click Connect.
After you have connected to the shared printer, you will be able to print to this shared printer as long as the printer and the computer sharing the printer are turned on.


please note that in network the computer that has the network printer if it is running XP may take as long as 15minutes to be recognized.

New vista windows working with a wireless routerand a new laptop


Well if you want the prints to go through the router and into the printer First, set the printer up for sharing by going to printers and faxes right clicking on the printer choose Sharing Choose share this printer and give it a name, then might have to get a wireless usb for the desktop at a local Wal-mart and the laptop should have wireless, when you get that stuff connect to the wireless network, go to start, printers and faxes, in the left side toward the top you will see a link saying add printer, let the wizard start hit next, choose the bubble beside A network printer, then hit next choose browse for printer hit next it will say searching for printer wait till a list of printers come up and choose the one you want the computers to use.
