  • Hi,


    This behavior occurs if the driver is not compatible.


    The latest driver for Windows Vista can be downloaded from the following website.

    After you download the driver and software, I suggest that you remove the existed driver components for HP P1005.


    Remove printer


    1. Click the "Start" button, type PRINTER in the search box and press Enter.

    2. Find the icons which are related to HP P1005, and delete them.

    3. Right-click on the blank part of the window, and choose "Run as administrator"->"Server Properties".

    4. On the Drivers tab, select the listed printer and click the Remove button. Please then select Remove driver and driver package.

    5. Open Start menu, input APPWIZ.CPL in the Search box and press ENTER to launch "Programs and Features".

    6. Try to remove all related printer software.


    Please then reinstall the latest driver.


    If the issue persists, I suggest that you disable the anti-virus temporary, and then try to install again.


    Hope it helps.
