i bought a hp photsmart c4580 at the weekend and i cant't get it working.
it's supposed to be wireless through the router or cabled with the usb. the laptop that runs on vista home basic just doesn't seem to like it for some reason. i ave gone through the installation process several times and it says cannot find specified path or it says printer not wireless copmpatible or something like that, so i tried to connect it with the usb and the same thing. i tried downloading a driver from hp in case i had the wrong one suppied, but still no luck.
so, this morning i rang the hp helpline and i was told to disable everything except microsoft in case the firewall or virus checker was blocking it, but still no joy. is there something else which could be blocking it?
to make sure it wasn't the printer, i tried it on the desktop pc which is running on xp, and it worked straight away.
i know this has been a long winded story, but any help or tips to make the thing work would be most appreciated!
