I will try to help, which may be difficult since you seemed to have tried everything.
Did this printer ever work with Vista?
If yes, why do you have to reinstall?
If the answer to the above question is no. There are a few tricks.
First, most printers have a print test, try that. See if the printer does indeed work.
If it does work
Go to printers and devices and make sure that the printer is properly installed.
If it is properly installed and does not work, uninstall driver
Remove the printer cable from the computer. Do not just turn off the printer
Go to the website and follow instructions, do not connect printer until told to turn it on.
Finally, If the CD has a current and correct driver that may be the best method to install. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...rinter-drivers
