RE: Installing HP Deskjet 3325 Printer on Windows Vista

Hi C Vithana,

HP is not providing a Windows Vista driver for the HP Deskjet 3325 printer. But there is an alternative way to get the printer working on Windows Vista. Just follow these steps:

1. If your printer is connected to your computer, disconnect it.
2. Click on the Start menu.
3. Click on Control Panel
4. Click on the Hardware & Sounds control panel.
5. Click Printers.
6. Click "Add a Printer"
7. Click "Add a Local Printer"
8. Check off the "Use an existing port" check box.
9. In the list entitled "Use an existing port" choose "LPT1: (Printer Port)
10. Click on the "Next" button
11. Choose "HP" as the manufacturer from the list of manufacturers
12. In the printers list that shows up, choose "Deskjet 3500"
13. Click on the "Next" button
14. In the text box called "Printer name" type "Deskjet 3325"
15. Wait for the computer to say that the printer has been successfully added.
16. Connect your printer to your computer (i.e. connect the cable to the USB port at the back of your computer.
17. A "Found New Hardware" screen should show up. Click Cancel on this window. (if it keeps showing up, just keep on clicking cancel until no more windows pop up)
18. Go back to the printer folder (i.e. the one where you clicked "Add a Printer"
19. Right Click on "Deskjet 3325"
20. Click on "Properties" in the menu that popped up.
21. Select the "Ports" tab.
22. Change the port from "LPT1" to "USB"
23. Click on the "Apply" button.

And that's it! That should allow you to use your HP Deskjet 3325 printer in Windows Vista.

You might want to print out a test page just to make sure the printer works.

Eric.

RE: Installing HP Deskjet 3325 Printer on Windows Vista

Yes... this works wonderfully! Only had to remove the previous printer-install first and then tell vista not to auto-install the printer each time i inserted the usb.
Thanks a million!!

RE: Installing HP Deskjet 3325 Printer on Windows Vista

there's no way I make it work...
I have Vista HP S.P.1. on my notebook. I followed each single step and tried to print a page, but although the printer tells me that the document is being printed, the printer does not work! I tried to remove the printer and its driver from the control panel and re-install the driver, but the result is the same.
Can anyone help me?
Of course I did not connect the printer before step 16, and I chose the (only one) USB port on the properties panel. Next step is to buy a new printer and\or destruct my notebook! please save me....
