I have run HP update in order for Windows 7 to recognise my Deskjet F2180 printer. It is no longer listed as an option under Print, but is listed under Device Manager as Deskjet F2100 (DOT4PRINT). Troubleshooting ends in a failure to install the driver found on the internet. It will scan, but this option isn't as important right now as printing. I thought it would have at least rudimentary printing support under a 'modern' operating system. What can I do to get to recognise my printer?

These download only works on a 64 bits system. I've tried both downloads to instal (the 32 and 64 bits drivers) but due the installation I get on both downloads the same error: Support: "Windows 7 64 bit, Windows 7. I'm working with a 32 bits system. As far I can see the downloads are the same, both for 64 bits systems. There is no download for a 32 bits system. Maybe a mistake during the uploading?

I am aware the posts is a little old but I am getting the same error, my installation CD is not compatible with windows 7. Is there any easy solution? Trying to download the file that someone suggested, it is taken ages to download however and I am on a great connection speed.

I have a similar probleim in that I have also run HP update in order for Windows 7 to recognise my Deskjet F2180 printer. It is no longer listed as an option under Print, but is listed under Device Manager as Deskjet F2100 (DOT4PRINT). Troubleshooting ends in a failure to install the driver found on the internet. It will scan.
The thing is the printer used to work, but then stopped one day because the computer failed to recognise it.
I have since connected it to another PC running Vista and it works fine. But when I try and connect the Windows 7 PC via my home network I get the error message:
'Windows cannot connect to the printer. The printer driver is not compatible with a policy enabled on your computer which blocks NT 4.0 drivers'.
I have tried removing all drivers and HP software and reinstalling to no effect. I have also just let windows get on with finding a driver but the loading of the drivers always fails, just leaving me with the scanner function!
Any ideas anyone - please!!!
