You might need to install or update the printer driver so that it is compatible with windows vista. Follow these steps to install or update printer drivers using the Printers folder:
  • Click the Start button -> Control Panel ->Hardware and Sound
  • Then click Printers
  • Right-click on your printer
  • Click Run as administrator
  • Then click Properties
  • Click the Advanced tab
  • Click New Driver
  • Then complete the steps in the Add Printer Driver Wizard
