My HP 950c also stopped working. My stopped I mean it doesn't even have
anything in the print queue. If I try to go to properties, it flashes for
about 1/2 second then dissapears. I tried reinstalling the printer software,
rebooting, etc. The HP website says Vista already has all the drivers - lots
of help. Any suggestions?

You might find that some of the advanced features are no longer
available when using this basic driver. You can upgrade to an HP
product that is fully compatible with Windows Vista if the advanced
