    I have a Dell laptop - running Vista 31bit. I want to install the software for my HP Photosmart C4150 All-in-One printer/scanner/copier. The CD that came with the printer was for Windows 98SE, Me, 2000 and XP. When I insert the CD - nothing happens. I go to My Computer/CD Drive/ and I see all the file folders. The installation disc does not start up.

    Where can I go to download the full software so I can use my printer?

    Thank you for the reply. I did see that page but thought I could just download it online instead of paying for a CD.

    Download and save the full-feature package in your computer.

    Turn on the printer, but don't connect its USB cable to the computer yet.

    Double-click the saved file to install the software.

    Connect the USB cable to the computer when prompted to.

    Follow the rest of the instructions from there.

    It worked fine and I was able to scan a picture and save it to my computer. The only problem I have is when I click on HP Solution incon it says "no HP device is recognized here. HP Solution Center will close now.". Can't figure that out.
