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.)

Try searching for the Windows XP drivers. The HP website indicates that should solve the problem!

I tried installing my HP 1310 all-in-one printer driver on my Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit system, and a message pops up telling me that I cannot install the software because it only works with Windows XP or earlier operating systems. Is there any way around this?

Thanks.

A:HP 1310 printer driver not compatible with Vista

Hi, lizastreet, and welcome to the forums.

Have you tried visiting HP's website for drivers for Vista?

I went there myself and only saw 1311, 1312, 1315 (3 models) and 1317 and 1318 listed as possible model choices....

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. Thank you.

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?

Hi all,

My printer is getting pretty old (a Dell AIO 924) and it isn't compatible with Windows 7. I am looking for a a new all in one printer that's compatible with Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit. It doesn't have to be a wireless printer. I am looking for the best all in one printer that is compatible with Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit that is $70 or under. If there is a good one for $80 I might be willing to pay a little more. Thanks for the help!

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

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.

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?

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

A poster talked about his woes with a printer under Vista; I'm having the same problem with a Lexmark printer on a Gateway . Nearly every time I plug in the USB cable, Vista HP tells me it's searching for the driver software to install. Eventually it does install, with a new printer instance.

I've been through the drill with Lexmark tech support several times; I've downloaded their "cleanup" software to completely uninstall the drivers and then reinstalled, but with no success. Perhaps 75-80 percent of the time I connect the printer, I have to reinstall the drivers.

Lexmark techs also suggested that the BIOS might be out of date, which sounds dubious because Vista handles calls to the printer, not the BIOS. But in any case the BIOS is current.

I'll try the suggestion in the other thread to disable UAC and install, but would appreciate any other thoughts people may have.

Hi,
Can anyone tell me and give me a step-by-step instruction how to synchronize MS Outlook 2007 with the printer HP Office Jet Pro 8500?

All I want to accomplish is to make a 'Scan to Email' and MS Outlook being the program responsible for it and therefor automatically should open. I had done this with dozens of printers but somehow can't get it accomplished with the HP Office Jet Pro 8500.

What I do is:

- Click 'Scan' (on the printer touch-screen menu)
- Click 'Scan to Email' (on the printer touch-screen menu)

Then, the following message appears:

No Network Connection
To use this feature, the All-In-One must be connected to the network
For more information, see the documentation

I DO NOT want a network connection or anything. I just want MS Outlook to be the responsible program..... plain and simple - nothing fancy or special...

Everything else, fax, printer & copy, work without any problems at all.

Please help....

I just bought a HP TouchSmart 64-bit computer, running Vista Home Premium 64.

My old computer had Windows XP and I have discovered that my Palm Tungsten E is not compatible with the 64-bit format, and it doesn't look like Palm is going to step up to the plate with new drivers.

Soooo..... I am shopping for a new PDA. I don't want a smartphone. Tried a couple, and didn't like them, and didn't need the internet access 'to go'. I use Microsoft Office 2007, so the PDA needs to be able to sync with Outlook 2007 (contacts and calendar), and download Word documents.

Can anyone recommend a PDA for me? I might need to go back a couple of generations (after paying for my new PC) and look at a used one, so please specify which models will work for me. I don't use the 'graffiti' method of data input, so a PDA with a QWERTY keyboard (provided it is small enough to put in my purse/tote) or stylus would work for me.

Thanks so much (in advance) for your help.

A:XP compatible with Vista?

Hey nnnever,

I have heard that running XP and Vista on the same computer can cause problems. One that I had when trying to do this is that when you boot to XP it deletes the system restore files.

And another thing. I don't think that you can just pull out the XP hard drive and put it in the new computer and expect it to work.

I have Vista and I use Microsoft Virtual Machine to run Windows XP inside Windows Vista.

You could just get rid of the problem altogether and swipe the drive that has Windows Vista on it and then just use XP.

A:Not Vista compatible

Most Photo editing programs can access scanners. Since HP's Twain driver does not work in Vista, it's still possible that Windows WIA driver 'might' work. (for scanning)
In Irfanview, you would go to 'File', 'Select Twain Source'. If a WIA driver shows up, select it. Next, click 'File', 'Acquire/Batch Scanning'.

Other Photo editing programs should be similar. I don't know if will work, but worth a try. If you don't have any editing programs, Irfanview can be downloaded here:http://www.irfanview.com/
It's small, fast, and free.

We recently got a new Compaq computer with Vista OS, Trend Micro AntiVirus 2007 and Webroot Spy Sweeper. When I suggested to the salesman my intention of also downloading the free Zonealarm firewall, which we had on our old computer with XP for 7 years, he discouraged it saying it would conflict and cause problems, reassuring me that he'd take care of everything... Well, I'm not sure he did--it doesn't appear I have any firewall protection on this computer, and that makes me uneasy. Could I have some feedback from all of you about this so I can rest assured that our computer is adequately protected or do something to get it that way--and go back to sleeping at night.
 

A:Firewalls compatible with Vista

Vista has a pretty good firewall already included, you probably really don't need anything more. Also, you most likely have a broadband router offering an additional firewall layer.

I have a huge problem. I purchased a new computer and hooked it up this weekend, it has Vista Premium and is a HP. Previously had win 98se. I work for a company from home that I mainly take calls and enter them into a software application. I log onto the software with a password. The software is Seibal CRM on Demand by Oracle. Pryer to getting the computer I spoke with someone at Oracle and was told Vista was not yet supported by them but they had some with it that she did not think had any problems. Well wrong.
When I went on the software today part of it works and not the other part (the tools part with the phone which I belive is called CRM call center on demand. Anyway it keeps showing a error message. I could not work today and have talked to everyone with the exception of B Gates. Oracle and employer says nothing they can do. HP says no help. Microsoft says yes I can get xp and call back and they will then transfer me to tect support and walk me through install, that you can have 2 operating systems something about Virtual whatever. Office Depot where I got the new computer says yes but you have to
re do the hard drive. Talked to someone who said Microsoft's Virtual whatever does not work well. Don't want to lug this computer back and office depot says they have no computers with XP anyway and don't want to pay $200 for xp and probably then fight to make it work with both. Do know the software is compatible with Xp as daughter has xp though her's is ... Read more

I've just recieved a new computer, and on setting it up I discover that my firewall of choice (Zonealarm) does not support Vista 64(Home Premium)

Does anyone know a good free firewall that works on 64-bit (im currently using the Windows Firewall)?

Thanks and Merry Christmas to you all!

Comodo Personal Firewall is one, Agnitum Outpost Firewall 2008 is another. I guess it's up to you to decide whether they're good or not.

Hi,

In general, are external USB DVD-RW drives compatible with Vista x64? I have several (ranging from 6 months to 2 years old) and was wondering if I'd have to buy newer models.

I understand that I can go to a site and find a list of NICs that are supposed to be compatible with Vista. This is not what I want. The NIC I had was "certified Vista compatible" but it seems from the boards on the manufacturer's website that this is not uncommon for my card. What I would like to know is: are there any Vista users out there who are NOT having problems with their cards that would like to share brands/ models that are proven by usage to work with Vista?
 

A:Vista-compatible NICs

I've been working fine with Vista Home Premium with the two adapters shown in the attachment. But note that the second one is an integrated one, so you're probably not interested in that one.

Even though my gamble has paid off I don't recommend the Airlink101 unless you get it at a bargain price. Partly because it is USB but also because it is draft 1 'N.' I got lucky--it's working fine with my draft 2 'N' router, connecting consistently at a nominal 270 Mbps.

If you get 'N' make sure it is draft 2. Almost any 'G' adapter with a Vista driver should be fine.

Hi everyone,

I am getting help from a French help forum and the tech asked me to launch Combifix, he gave me this tutorial site's link and told me to post him the report, once done.

I installed Combifix, the problem is that when I try to launch it, I get an error message saying that it is only compatible with Windows XP or 2000. Is that normal ? Is there another version or a way to solve this ?

PS : I have Windows Vista as OS, Mozilla as browser.

Thanks
Sam

Hi, I've been reading some answers for my question, but i still havent find the right one.
Basically, Im runing windows vista and I want to format and install XP. Many people say "backup the drivers or download the drivers from your computers manufacture" but my question is: Are those drivers gonna be compatible with XP? Can I be sure that the motherboard will accept working with XP (its a new computer and it cames with Vista installed)
I really appreciate if you can answer my question.

Thanks.

Hi there, just had a quick question i was asked the other day and was not sure about the answer. I was asked if there was any way to use a store bought program that is only compatible up to XP on a vista OS. I did not get which program it was, but i figured that with the knowledge base you would be able to munipulate the program to make it work with Vista. Any ideas?

A:XP program compatible with Vista?

Vista has some compatibility mode options that may help.

It could just be that when the application was published, produced, and packaged, Vista may have still been in the works.

This does not necessarily mean that the application won't run on Vista. It just means that it was not designed with Vista in mind.

The only way you can tell is to try it, or do a Google Search for a Windows Vista Program Compatibility Database.

I am looking at purchasing a Gateway GT5662 Desktop with a Vista OS. My problem is much of my software is not compatible with Vista and runs great with my XP OS. I will be installing a separate hard drive for the XP OS on this computer but I feel there could be some issues of having everything work right since this is a Vista computer. I have went to the several of the vendor sites to see if they have drivers and so far so good. The one I am having difficulty with is the motherboard. If someone could give me a little direction on where to look or has information concerning this it would be appreciated. The spec's are as follows: MCP61PM-GM motherboard with an nVidia nForce 430 chipset, 2.2-GHz AMD Phenom 9500 quad-core processor. Thanks for the help in advance

A:XP OS compatible with Vista OS computer

Well, what type of OS do you have (OEM or Retail)? Did it come with the PC? If so, you cannot transfer it, so you are looking at buying a new license.

As to XP support ... I cannot find the 5662 on the Gateway site, but the 5674 (same processor) does seem to have a lot of XP drivers for download.
