Hi roberson
you could do .

In Windows Vista, you do not have immediate access to the Admin Account. When logging into Windows Vista, you do not have the option of using this account.

From the Start menu, simply right-click on Computer and choose Manage. Next, expand Local Users and Groups and select the Users folder. The final step is to right-click on the Administrator login and choose properties. Clear the Account is Disabled checkbox and you have now enabled your Administrator account.

I forgot pass word?


If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:
- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip

CD LOST OF HP DESKJET 3845


HP.com/Support>HP Deskjet 3845 Color Inkjet Printer>Drivers & Software Downloads>Pick your Operating System,
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=372330&
You didn't state what Operating System you are using. I'm going to pick Vista to use as an example,

There is no full feature software and driver package for Vista. However there is a basic driver, and a workaround. Here, http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01655752&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=372330&os=2093&lang=en

If you have Windows XP, here is the driver, and the HP Essential software,
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=372330
First download the driver, (IN DOING all of this, DO NOT have the printer plugged into the computer, and have the printer turned off)
Click on -> HP Deskjet Full Feature software/driver: USB cable
(Size is 14.41MB)
It will go to your desktop screen. Double-click on it. If a window comes up that states Extraction Wizard, go up to the top right, and click on -> Extract All Files. Follow the instructions. Look for a file that has -> Setup, or a file that ends in -> .exe

It may ask you if you want to restart your computer at this time.
NO! Not yet!
Now download this for the same page as above,
HP Photosmart Essential Software for Photo Editing, Printing, and Sharing (Size is 6.19MB)
Follow the same instructions as I gave above.

Would appreciate a follow up to see if this 'cured' your problem.
Have a nice day.

Need new software to download scanner information from cd as cd is for windows98/2000/millennium only and my new computor is windows vista.


Downloading the software from the cd wont help you. But you can just try running it and seeing if it will install. Windows Vista needs specific drivers for scanners, if it doesnt detect the scanner and install it then you need to go to the scanner manufacturer website and see if they have an update. or you can use a progra like VueScan, it doesnt need the drivers installed it will install the scanner and allow you to scan whatever u need

Hope that helps

There are some compatiblity problems between Vista and your printer. Check this web page to download a driver that may provide limited printing capability for your printer...you'll need to use Windows Scanners and Cameras or Photo Gallery for scanning.
