[SOLVED] Printer compatible

Q: [SOLVED] Printer compatible

Hi
I needed to reinstall windows and decided on W7 64bit but now my Canon pixma printer IP4200 will not work,( 32bit version)
Tried the supposedly 64bit driver from Canon but still no luck.

Uninstalled printer software and tried again, still no luck.


Looks like a new printer required, but the question is what Inkjet printer will work with w7 64bit.

Does any member have a printer that works and if so what make (prefer Canon)

Getting desparate now
Thanks

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: [SOLVED] Printer compatible

I would hold off before buying a new printer. If it was working before and the only difference is you've installed Windows 7 64bit, then you should be able to get it to work.

One thought, what was the Operating System you had before?

This printer isn't wireless, right? So it is connected with USB? (Connect the printer first before doing the following).

You could try running Windows Update, after going into the "Change Settings" and ticking the option "give me recommended updates...", the update facility might (should) offer you the correct driver to install for the printer.

I have a portable spirometer (to test lung functions) that can print the stored results to a PCL-compatible printer. The printer cable has a RS-232 plug.

My printer is a hp psc 1210 printer/scanner/copier and only has a square plug that plugs into the printer. A USB cable plugs into that from my computer.

Is my printer PCL-compatible? Will an adapter plug/cable do the job? If not, how can I print the results using my printer?

I have a computer from internetishop (hugebee), a Pentium 3 with 256ram and 1.2g processor. I am trying to install an HP psc 2100 all-in-one printer. The CD runs a check of the system first and comes back that OP system is not viable (A display comes up that lists the components it has checked, and there's a green check on all, but the OS), there is a big red X next to OS, but all other components check out. One would think that means it's not compatible, however I took the printer and installed it on my friend's PC and they also have XP as their OS with matching system specs. Internetishop's tech support sucks big time and they have no clue how to fix this. Does anyone has any suggestions? It seems like it would be an easy fix, but I'm just not sure where to start and internetishop is suggesting that I go to windows 98, that's a pretty sad solution considering that I bought XP from them. Please help! The printer works fine, so does the drivers CD. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

When I made the move from Windows XP to Windows 7, I no longer have the HP printer toolbox icon on my desktop. Even tho I had to do a clean install from the original printer CD, I can't find it.

Before posting here I tried looking on the web+I'm thinking the toolbox is not compatible with Windows 7?

It was always nice to be alerted when I was running low on ink,+ now I don't even have the option to clean the print heads. If the program is not going to work with my current system, is it possible for me to manually clean the print heads?

Hello Everyone,

I have moved from W 7 Home Premium to W 7 Ultimate.
I have had an HP desktop 2050 for about 3 years without problem.
I can no longer print a job with page borders.
I have literally tried EVERY combination of borders available in MS Word 2010 and also using Open Office.
Each time I have the message that the "page borders are outside the printable area."
I have downloaded the most recent drivers and still can not print without this message. If I decide to print, then a portion of the border is compromised.
As a 'last ditch' effort I post this question here, in the hope that someone has knowledge of this problem, before I consign the printer to a dark and forgotten place and purchase a printer that is compatible with Ultimate and - probably - from a different maker.

Regards

ColinX

A:Please name Printer compatible with W 7 Ultimate

Hi Colin,

This isn't an Ultimate problem, or even a Windows 7 problem, but rather you need to look at the page layout/paper sizes/border sizes in Word itself.

Your printer is definately supported under all versions of Windows 7 - note that there is no such thing as "Ultimate compatibility".

Regards,
Golden

I have a HP Pavillions P6000 Series with a Windows 7 operating system. It would not "talk" to my 5-yr old HP 3700dn printer. Bought a new HP Color LaserJet CP2025 less than a year ago. Have spent countless hours with Tech Support downloading, uninstalling, and reinstalling various drivers. Worked for a couple of days then would not print. Any color print job over 500 kb would not print. Now it will not print at all. Need to print frequently using 65 cardstock and always in color with graphics.

I have searched review boards for a color laser printer compatible with Windows 7 and prints quality pages ($500 price limit). This is what I have found: Konica Minota: problems with compatability, Brother: toner hog and bad customer service, Samsung: fuser issues and terrible customer service, OKI: fuser problems and expensive ink, Lexmark: toner hog and other hardware issues, Ricoh: could not find any reviews but do they really still sell these?

Grateful for any suggestions of a brand and model # that would actually be a good fit for my needs.

Thanks in advance!

Well, I've searched this site and to the end of the web. The problem is my HP photosmart C-5180 printer won't recognize some new "compatible" cartridges (HP 02).

AFTER I bought them, THEN the seller tells me that "after they researched it, other customers are reporting problems w/ compatible carts & C-5100 / 6100 series printers". Other retailers have now also told me the same.

I'm looking for a workaround. My problem is that the printer won't recognize the new cart, NOT that it says it's empty. Error message: "cartridge(s) is missing or damaged." Obviously, HP has rigged this printer & the HP 02 cart so generic carts won't work.:dead:

I went through all the steps that the inkseller suggested to "trick" the printer into recognizing the compatible carts. HA! But, just like everything else, there must be a hack for this.

Suggestions or links would be appreciated.
 

A:Using compatible cartridges in HP C-5180 printer

tough break. The only solution I can offer is to buy an ink refill kit with the original HP carts. Obviously they are using ID chips in their ink carts to prevent 3rd party ink carts from being used. Very sneaky and also a violation of some trade laws.

Hi all,

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 (32 bit), but now my Lexmark All-In-One X74-X75 printer drivers aren't compatible... well, kind of.

When I first reinstalled the drivers after the upgrade, I was able to use the scan facility of the printer, and print jobs could queue up for printing, but they would not print. When I attempted to update drivers, uninstall/reinstall, etc, I was told the installation was unsuccessful.

I could not find any drivers for my model printer on the Lexmark site, but I was hoping someone out there may have some tips on how I can get around this problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

We recently purchased a laptop, Gateway MX8738, that uses the Vista OS and a wireless printer that is Vista compatible (Lexmark x4550). Our internet signal is received via a combination modem/wireless router (Verizon, Westall Model 327).
We were successful in loading the printer wirelessly to our laptop and able to print documents. But found, when attempting to access our internet service (that had been operational), we were unable to do so though signal was strong. Upon going to Network and Sharing we learned the printer was blocking the internet signal to the laptop. Over the course of 2 days, we spent easily 8 hrs each with both Lexmark and Verizon with neither able to help, each pointing fingers at the other.
This is our last resort. We temporairly disconnected the Windows firewall on the laptop and found this did not solve our problem. We also have a Trend Micro Anti Virus loaded on the laptop, but did nothing with that. Any one out there have any suggestions? Your assistance is greatly appreciated by this computer novice.

I'm having difficulty getting the printer which is attached to a Win XP Pro system to be available for use by a Win ME system on the same network.

The printer is a HP Deskjet 697C. It is installed and working on the Win XP Pro system.
Both systems can see each other on the network and transfer files back and forth with no difficulty.
The printer on the XP system is marked for Sharing and File and Print Sharing is enabled.
The XP Firewall is turned off, as we use Zone Alarm Security Suite.

We have a Canon iP3500 connected to a desktop running XP Home SP2. The desktop connects wirelessly to our router. I have laptop running Vista Basic SP1 with a wired connection to the router. The printer is shared and almost all programs running on the laptop can print to the iP3500 with no problem.

One of the software packages that came with the printer, "Canon Easy PhotoPrint EX", installed with no problem on the laptop. When I try to run the program, a pop-up box reports "Printing cannot be executed because a printer supported by the software is not installed." I can click OK to continue running the program but can not print anything. Canon tech support has confirmed that the software does not support a shared Canon printer on another computer.

I had thought I had come across a utility over a year ago (before we purchased the printer) that would map a shared printer on another computer to appear as a local USB connected printer. Trying to use Google to find the program is giving me way too many hits on web pages with discussions on general USB printer sharing issues on networked computers.

Also if I buy 2GB DDR2 PC2 4200 (533 Mh) will it work with my other one without any problems?

My other question is when I install another ram on the other slot do I have to install anything on the bios or aything else? or will it be added to my memory I have now?

I need to know if an AMD Athlong 62 dual core 2.2 Ghz is 64 bit compatible
 

A:Solved: 64 bit compatible

Athlons have been 64-bit since the old Athlon XP single core days so they aren't just 64-bit compatible; they are 64-bit processors.

I have an HP, P2, 333MHz, 190 RAM and Win98Se.....

I bought a new Mad Dog CD-RW and I'm getting a "not compatible" message after I installed it. I installed it as the slave to the CD, then tried it as master and both times the message specied "slave and master"....

I have the minimum speed and RAM.
The package says the hardware is compatible with my system EXCEPT it lists almost every version of Windows operating systems except specifically 98se......and 3.1.........it lists 95, 98, Me, XP, 2000...

Could it be possible that it's compatible with all these OP systems, just not 98se?.....that's what the store is trying to tell me and I have a hard time believing that.............or is there something I'm missing?

Right before I tried to install the Mad Dog, I upgraded from 98 to 98Se.......'sighs'

Any comments, feedback or help would be appreciated.

Thanks

will 2 different brands of SDRAM be compatible with each other
i.e.
256 mb from crucial +
256 mb from kingston...?

yes, each selection of ram would have the same compatability (PC 133, 168 pin DIMM to be exact)

i dont see why not, i am just curious before I buy

thanks
 

A:Solved: Compatible RAM?

My laptop's got 256 of no-name OEM in one slot and 512 of Corsair in the other.

My linux box has 32 of kingston in one slot and 32 of Dell in the other.

My gaming box has 512 of K-Byte in one slot and 1024 of Patriot in the other.

The moral of the story is "Yeah, you should be hunky-doory."

Hey, I have a Gateway E-4600, it has an Intel D850GB Motherboard, I was wondering if a Nivida GeForce 5500 will be compatible with it, and if it will have any problems running? Thanks!
 

A:Solved: Is my GPU Compatible?

The motherboard does have a AGP 1.5Volt slot so you shoudl be able to use the FX5500 with it.

Be aware that the FX5500 isn't a very good gaming card if you are purchasing it for that purpose.

Hey, all. I'm starting to get machines on my bench - finally - that have one version of Vista or another installed. When I "clean-up" a machine, I use CCleaner, SuperAntiSpyware, Spybot S&D and AVG free. I set these up so they don't all load at startup but have to be lauched by the user.

Are these programs compatible with Vista? Or are there other apps that are - free first of all - and better to use with Vista? Thanks!

A:Solved: Vista compatible?

Found out that the current versions of each works fine with Vista. Does the fact that a user can't do a specific search for video files in Vista bother anyone else? I "clean-up" used machines for re-sale and, as you can imagine, there are often times various video files which are...inappropriate...to leave on the machine. I know I can search by file extension, but it was nice in XP that a user could search specifically for video files.

My grandson who is in the military bought a new 23 inch computer monitor and then was deployed so he gave the monitor to my wife. When I connected it to her computer with WXP, the display was too large for the screen. When on the Internet you cannot see the minimizing icon or the X to close the program. In addition, the fonts were difficult to read and some window frames that contained text were so faint you could not read the text. I believe the new monitor resolution was 1080X1920.
I have bought new larger size computer monitors in the past and had no difficulty. I reduced the recommended resolution which brought the above referenced icons into view but the fonts were still difficult to read.

My question: Is there some way you have to determine if your computer can support a monitor before you make the purchase?
 

A:Solved: New monitor not compatible with WXP

I'm going to assume that's a 23" wide-screen LCD monitor.

Can you provide a description of it?

---------------------------------------------------------

Right-click MY COMPUTER, then click Properties - Hardware - Device Manager.

Click the + in Display Adapters

What's the description of the device there?

Double-click that device to open its properties window, then click the "Driver" tab.

What's the driver date and driver version?

Click the + in Monitors

What's the description there?

---------------------------------------------------------

Right-click an empty on the desktop, then click Properties.

Click the "Settings" tab.

What's the current resolution setting, and is the slider far left or far right?

---------------------------------------------------------
