What does this mean? "My car wont run, what should I do to make it run???"

Can you provide a lot more info?

I think Windows still needs driver for that printer. When you add 
network printer from another Windows driver is installed automatically. 
Do you have Vista driver installed for that printer? Do you see the 
printer at all....
