    I have a laptop which uses Vista. When I go to control panel, it says it is offline. I have tried everything and nothing works to get it online. I also have a pc with Vista but it shows online and I can print with it without a problem. My printer is an HP Photosmart C7200. I would appreciate any help that you could give me regarding this problem.

    I've moved your thread to the Hardware forum but please be patient. It's only been just over an hour since you posted.
