Can I use my HP DeskJet 825 with Windows Vista?

by on March 26, 2009

Q: I have a new laptop and want to use my current printer. The printer software was for Windows XP but the new laptop is Vista. Can I get the printer software be loaded on the new laptop? The printer is an HP deskjet 825 series.

    I find it hard to believe myself, but HP isn’t bothering to make a vista driver for this printer.

    Normally, when you need new drivers for hardware components you can try the manufacturer’s website, they’ll usually have updates available. In this case it looks like that since this is a discontinued printer, they’d rather make you go buy a new printer than pay someone to write a new driver. Boooo on HP.
