HP Printer won't install with VISTA OS

New HP all in one 6500 printer series doesn't want to install on computer with Vista 64 bit OS. This is a wireless printer.

How can I fix this issue without upgrading to windows 7?

Printer is not printing color, and calibration is off a bit. How do I fix if I cannot install cd?

Did you check

Did you check HP's website for Vista drivers?

I downloaded the drivers and installed the program, but....

The printer won't allign and keeps failing the allignment process and it now prints yellow after I did a print clean option, but it won't print blue or cyan. Sad

I did not originally install this printer. Would it be better to completely uninstall and unplug it, and then try and reinstall?

What is preventing it from alligning and calibrating correctly? How can I get it to print color?

I am doing this for my friend and trying to save her money in tech help that someone else would probably charge a lot for.
