    Error Code 80070103

    For the past week, Windows Update has attempted each day to install a new
    update. It's the HP Other Hardware HP Photosmart C4100 Series (DOT4USB). It
    always ends in failure with the above error code. I keep getting the icon in
    my system tray that there are new updates available. In looking for help to
    find info on this error code, one said this update may be trying to install a
    driver that is not as up-to-date as the one I have installed.

    Has anyone experienced this and if so, how did you resolve it?

    Hello!
    I have the same problem (Errir Code) with my Hewlett-Packard- Other
    Hardware- HP Deskjet 5400 Series (DOT4USB).
    Does it just go away?

    Visit the HP site to see if there is an updated driver for your equipment and
    get the update from there.
    Hide the update that is being automatically offered by WU if it doesn't go
    away after obtaining any updates you require from the HP site.

    At the risk of just adding a "me too," I have the same problem which appears
    to have just started in June 2007. I've had Vista installed on this new
    machine for a little over a month and it updated fine until this week. It's
    not an HP machine, however, its a Velocity Micro. Updates fail using
    automatic service, IE, and the control panel. The Windows Defender likewise
    couldn't update but by some unknown method it started working this morning.

    A Google and Windows Update database search came up empty for this error code.

    I have an HP LaserJet 3055. It was installed and working perfectly well until
    I loaded Vista on my machine. HP are still not listing a Vista driver for
    this on their website, telling users to use the generic fax and scan function
    from MS. I get the above error code when I try to install this patch, and if
    the 3055 is disconnected I get another saying that the device must be
    connected. When I look in the temp windows install directory, there are only
    two directories created - a W2k and an XP directory - nothing for Vista.
    Looks to me like MS need to fix this.

    RE: Error Code 80070103

    I see there are several of us with a common problem: HP printers. I get the
    same error message each time so that is a given. My HP is the Photosmart 8250
    but with a duplexer on it. I am still not completely sure that the driver in
    question is for the printer or the duplexer since I had the whole setup
    before I went to Vista at the end of January. Do any of you have the duplexer
    too? Or is that ruled out on this thread.

    Hi there,

    Taking drivers from Windows update is not a good idea unless you like
    problems, if a driver is needeed because the hardware is not working well
    than get it at the manufacturers website in his case HP.

    If the hardware works well than leave it be working well.

    Best regards,
    Michel Denie

    I've found this note on HP site:

    NOTE: If your printer currently uses either a PCL5, PCL6 or PostScript XP
    driver, you may download the current XP driver from HP to provide printing
    functionality. Windows Vista printing is very similar to Windows XP and most
    print drivers supported in XP environment for LaserJet printers may also work
    in the Windows Vista operating system.

    It's helped me with my Laserjet 1010

    Apparently many HP owners suffer the same problem. I found the answer
    posted in this discussion group. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". When
    Vista first came out; to the best of my knowledge, it was not compatible with
    many HP products (or my HP Photosmart 7660). I was very upset since my
    printer was in good shape and fairly spendy, but of no use to me. Now,
    Windows Vista has fixed that problem and after 3 months of using my old, slow
    printer I have reinstalled my HP 7600. If this is the only problem I have
    now (unable to update, but runs fine) then I'm happy. Someone suggested
    hiding the update to get rid of it, is their any other way? I can't seem to
    delete it, although I haven't tried very hard. Good Luck.

    Ginnie, I see the same update offered and I don't see any way to hide it.
    I've hidden XP updates in the past but the Vista update page seems different.
    This Vista update offers no useful information re what driver version. It is
    simpy dated June whilst the Vista drivers for my C4180 at HP's site are dated
    March. So a person might think MS has some important newer file to apply.
    It's a very weak offering with no useful information and seemingly no way to
    hide. And I suspect there's a strong chance applying that file to a working
    AIO would hose it. Best of luck

    How did Vista fix the problem? Did you use an alternate driver?

    I have the same HP8250 printer without the duplexer, and I am getting the
    same error code. I think, since the printer is working fine, I will just
    hide the update.
