I have an HP Pavilion dv6-1235dx running Vista.  I cannot install a 64-bit Vista driver for my HP C6380 Photosmart printer.  I get an error 0x0000 0643.  The printer is networked and I can see it via Network.  I can even receive a scanned document.  Any ideas why the driver will not install?

Try downloading and installing the Microsoft Windows Installer Cleanup utility:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

Install it and run it. Pick the HP software from the list and uninstall. Download some new drivers from the HP site:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2100&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=uk&lang=en&product=3560280

And try to install them and see what happens. Also turn off any virus checkers when install the printer drivers.
