Which driver for HP Deskjet 3820?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Printing / Faxing / Scanning' started by Adam Lipscombe, Mar 26, 2008.

  1. I am trying to install a deskjet 3820.

    I have no Vista CD because the PC came with Vista Home pre-installed.

    The HP support site says there is no Vista driver for this printer and tells
    me to use a desket 970cse driver that is built into Vista. I have tried to
    install the printer as a 970cse but when I select the that printer the
    installation wizard prompts me to put a disk in.

    I have no disk and no CD. What can I do? Is there a workaround for this?


    Thanks - Adam

    5. Click Next and scroll down to "Printers", click once to ­highlight and click Next.
    6. Place a dot next to "Use the following port" and click N­ext.
    7. In the "Install Printer Software Screen", on the left si­de scroll down to "HP"
    and click once to highlight, then in the right-side scr­oll down to
    "HP DeskJet 970 Cse", click on it to highlight, then ­click Next to install the software.
