I can not get my printer to work. I went from xp to vista and my printer and computer do not see each other. When trying to install the printer the message states that my spooler is not running as well. Why is this so hard to hook up on vista systems?

Vista has its problems with drivers. If you can get on the internet dowlad and install the Vista drivers for the model of printer you have. Also you can go to control panel and delete this printer out and shut your computer off. Plug printer in and turn the computer on. If it is a plug and play printer the computer should find it and install. You should get a copy of the install disc. Good luck

My computer won't recognize (wirelessly) to my HP Deskjet


I'm sure you've tried installing the software with the printer detached...but if you haven't, that's the first thing. Another thing that's really common is that Vista may want to install its own drivers and they may not be compatible. Go into device manager (start-menu, right click on "computer", go to properties). Click on the hardware tab and let's get into device manager from there. Look for a yellow symbol with a ! in it. You can update drivers from there, navigating to the disk that you installed from...you'll likely see something that says "drivers" and either Vista or XP (If there's no Vista, try XP drivers anyway. Hope that works...
