I have an HP L2000 laptop with Windows XP Pro. I just installed the 4380 and it installed OK and printed wireless just fine.
But now when I turn on the computer it takes forever to boot up. The desktop background pops up but the icons take forever, almonst like it's not going to boot up. There is a long lull and the HD light flickers and then runs and then the icons show up. But the hour glass runs for a long time.
Before the install of the 4380 the laptop booted fairly fast. also it seems like the computer runs slower.

It should install fine without being a signed driver. Even though it is an XP driver it will be fine for Vista. I would recommend just downloading the latest software from the manufacturer's website though to be sure.
to set up my remote network i followed promts from windows and then had to run my windows xp startup disc on my vista laptop.
After that was complete i had to install the hp printer setup cd onto my vista laptop and connect the hp printer to my router using the ethernet cable. I followed the prompts on the vista as the cd continued to install. then at the end of it all it showed i had correctly installed the printer via wireless and asked me to do a practice print which i did and all seems fine.
I can now print from my vista laptop and my windows xp desktop. I hope this helps
Once installed, open the HP Wireless Assistant and click Properties button. Check the box next to "Independent controls for installed wireless devices." Then click "Turn All On" button. On next boot it will be enabled!

I found the problem to be a rather simple but frustrating one....when is an HP dv1000 not a dv1000....almost always!! You cannot get the correct downloads based on the model number on the tag. You must specify the PRODUCT NUMBER on the HP download site from the tag, not model. You can enter the general DV1000 and get to the download page and look for the entry "Not your Product?!" Follow that link and enter the PN from the tag....download those and you will get drivers that work with your unit. My "DV1000" was actually a DV1660!!!!
