How to do to Install Windows Vista In HP Printer?

It is never been easier to install a printer with Windows Vista. Any printer made in the last five or six years will be a Plug and Play device, which means that Vista also already contains the drivers for your printer or can load them automatically. If for some reason your HP printer is not Plug and Play, you can still use the Add Printer Wizard to automate the process.

The first step is to read the instructions that came with your HP printer. Depending on the instructions, there are three possible ways to continue. Once you’ve determined whether you need to load drivers first, you can turn on your PC and follow the installation option that fits your wishes. You can Contact HP Printer Customer Support for any help and queries.


If your HP Printer is a Plug and Play device, your job is nearly done. Now Just connect it and wait. Windows Vista will install what it needs automatically.

Although most HP printers can immediately connect to your computer, some printers need you to install software before you connect them. If your HP Printer requires software to be loaded before the printer is plugged in, insert the disc that came with the device and follows the onscreen instructions.
