[font="Comic Sans MS"]Bought new HP Pavilion notebook with Vista 64 bit OS. Previously had Vista and downloaded Q8161A driver from link HP sent to me in December. My same printer not operating with notebook. Now HP has link posted for Photosmart C3150 drivers for basic and full software and driver download. They suggest the larger one which even after shutting printer off and disabling firewall, virusware, and FTMP, won't download. Three days of OFFSHORE emailing back and nothing. Are there drivers loaded on this notebook that need to be uninstalled? I am assuming that the previous Q8161A driver download is history since notebook is gone. Nevertheless, no use of printer! Last download worked in 5 minutes with Vista and same printer. Where is this driver only?

You're saying, the bigger driver won't download, or install?

I just download it here without a problem.
If you're using Firefox, even with broken download, when you start it again, it should pickup, wherever it left.
