Vista 64 Print Driver wont work with HP 722C

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Printing / Faxing / Scanning' started by Bulkan Teacher, Dec 9, 2008.

  1. I have looked at a number of discussion groups (inc. Microsoft
    Vista.Print_Fax_Scan) and cannot find a similar problem so I hope
    someone can help. I just got a new computer with Vista 64 OS. I have
    an old HP 722C printer attached with USB upgrade. The MS Vista
    Compatibility site says it should be compatible and HP site says to
    use the MS driver loaded automatically when the USB is plugged in.

    But, using the Test Print Page from the Properties menu of the
    printer, the printer acts as if it is going to print by feeding the
    page to where it will normally print then stopping there (or
    hanging?). The printer was put back on an XP system and worked fine
    with the same USB attachment so it does not seem to be the printer.

    Any ideas? Every has led to a dead end so far. Any MS or HP printng
    experts. For information, it is a Dell desktop running the Vista 64
    OS.

    Thanks,
