    I just purchased a new PC with Vista. I was told by HP that there are no drivers available for my Photosmart 1215 printer and they suggested I buy a new one....Of course.....Does anyone know a source for a driver that will solve this problem? Where do I go to download it and what steps do I need to take?

    You can use the Business Jet 1220 driver ( included in Vista). Select the USB option and "add" the printer from the printers menu.

    Vista may not find your printer so, in that case, add it manually and then choose a driver from the list of drivers included in Vista.

    As I said, it is in the Vista installation. You need nothing else.
