Printer drivers compatible with Windows 7

Q: Printer drivers compatible with Windows 7

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.

Cheers,

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.)

That is an old printer, there are no W7 drivers available for it, time for an upgrade.

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!

OK so i had been through the whole beta driver scenario with amd's latest windows 8 drivers and it resulted in bsod's...which led me to download and install the stable but old drivers which led to my games having fps drops ,which i think is related to the drivers because with the beta drivers i was getting good fps's , not so much with the stable one's , anyways the question is should i go back to windows 7 because many people including myself are having compatibility issues with windows 8,windows 8.1 when it comes to amd's beta drivers( or just their drivers in general), while the vast majority are having no problems with their windows 7.

Hi!

I downgraded the Windows OS from Vista to XP for my friend since the Vista was too hard for him to figure out. However, after downgrading the
OS, I also 'lost' the sound drivers. I tried to download the Realtek AC'97

Hey all, I recently installed an SSD in my old y580 laptop and reinstalled windows 10 but windows is registering the touchpad as a mouse plugged into the PS/2 port. As such, the touchpad inputs are far from optimized and no multi-finger gestures are being recognized (including scrolling  ). The previous HDD recently died but definitely used elan/synaptics drivers. I've had this problem occur on other Lenovo laptops and I've seen others posting about it on here, but never for the y580 and I've never been able to solve it. I've downloaded all of the touchpad drivers on the support page for my serial number but none of them go up to windows 10 and all of them result in an error message that reads that the Realtek Bluetooth Suite isn't compatible with this version of windows. I've also downloaded 15-20 different drivers for windows 10 elan/synaptics touchpads from varying newer lenovo laptops but none of them recognize my touchpad either. Any help would be super appreciated.

I have just upgraded to Windows 8 Pro from the Consumer Preview. I am using a Virgin Media supplied Netgear WNDA3200 network adapter to connect to a Virign Media Superhub, but the drivers for the adapter don't seem to work with the release version of Win8. I had the same issue with the CP of Win8, but was able to resolve it by downloading the 1.2 version of the WNDA3100 driver from the Netgear website. I have tried this and all the other WNDA drivers including the windows 8 beta ones, but the adapter still isn't working.

It seems odd to me that it would work in the CP, but not in the full release version of Windows 8.

If anyone has any ideas as how to go about solving this issue, they would be much appreciated.

EDIT:

After much frustration, I figured out the issue. It turns out that the adapter had defaulted to running one of microsoft's drivers, which was not working correctly. To get around this, you need to make sure you already have the driver installed, then search for "Device Manager" in settings (without quotes), and open Device Manager. Once it's open, sroll down to Network Adapters, and expand that. Then double click on the adapter. It should open a small window. Navigate to the 'Driver' tab, and select 'Update driver'.

From there, go to 'Browse my computer for driver software', click 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer', and click the 'Have Disk' option. Browse to where the driver is installed (usually under ProgramFiles(x86)\Ne... Read more

After initially working fine on Windows 7 64-bit for several months my old HP Laserjet 1100 stopped working all of a sudden 3 months ago for good. Since then I have been trying various methods to get it up and running again & getting nowhere. It seems to be a common theme that people's old 1100 seems to work fine for the first few months & then it stops being able to print for no apparent reason.

Then earlier today I found a lone thread from a very old forum where someone with the same issue figured out that his 1100 stopped working just after a particular Windows Update (he didn't specify the offending update).

I just set up my new Dell with Windows 7. I connected it to my Brother MFC-8840D printer with a USB connection. Windows 7 recognized the printer and set it as default. But I cannot print anything. I called Brother, and the person said that the proper driver was in the computer. However, she then sent me an email which indicated that Brother does not offer a driver for this unit with Windows 7, but that an appropriate driver can be found on Windows Update. I had no success going to Windows Update. Does anyone have an idea (short of having to buy a new printer)?

Thanks.
 

A:Windows 7 and Drivers for a Brother Printer

I'd try to get clarification from the tech support person about getting a working driver via Windows Update, and why it didn't work for you.

If Brother has a Vista driver try that.

Or try the Vista or XP driver using the Troubleshoot Compatibility option (assuming you have a self-installing executable right click on it to get that option). You can spend the better part of an afternoon with the "recommended" settings, and with XP or Vista with various service pack levels. Oh, and sometimes this works. Start reading from post # 18 in this thread to see how this technique worked for some USB wireless adapters.

I have a network user and before Christmas I installed a new desktop PC with Windows 7 professional for her.

Setup and installation went smoothly until just recently. In the last 2 months, the PC "loses" the printer drivers for our Nashuatec MP 3300 multifunction office printer.

The printer still shows as installed in the Control Panel but the status shows as "Printer: Needs new driver". I then have to install the new drivers from the print server using my admin credentials. The PCthen retains the drivers until the next day when it loses them again.

hello
I have a USB multifunction laser printer. It is a Fuji Xerox CM205 f. I want to use printing and scanning.

I have the Win8 installation software from Fuji Xerox. The installation instruction says to connect and turn on printer and then install the software.
But I read that, when you connect a USB printer, Win8 will install the drivers. When then I install the Fuji Xerox software, then there are 2 printer installations?

So how should I do this?
Is it generally better to use the Win8 drivers? If yes, then I only have printer drivers and not the scan function.
Or should I use the Fuji Xerox installation. If yes, should I uninstall the Win8 drivers first before installing the Fuji Xerox software?

A:Printer install: drivers from Windows or from manufacturer

Installing the vendor's drivers should override the windows installed drivers. The vendor's drivers are needed for full functionality as you have found out.

I did that with all of the drivers in my system. I installed Win 8 and it installed the generic HD Audio Codec for the windows drivers and several other generic drivers. After installing Win 8, I installed the drivers from my motherboard vendor and it replaced the windows installed drivers with the motherboard vendor drivers.

I experienced some sort of driver conflict that prevent Windows 8 Pro from starting, so I did a Refresh. Didn't understand how that worked, so I got the nasty surprise that all my desktop programs and drivers were uninstalled.

So I've been reinstalling everything and just when I've finally got everything else in order I find out I can't install any printer drivers at all, despite being Windows 8 certified drivers. Not even PDFLite.

I get the message "error while testing for existing printer" followed by message "printer installation error -1001 (0)".

What's up with Windows 8 refusing all my print drivers? :(

A:Can't install any printer drivers on Windows 8 after refresh

Next time, you might have better luck using System Restore, using a restore point from before the driver conflict. System Restore can be started from the Windows 8 Recovery Environment by selecting the Troubleshooting option, then selecting System Restore. You likely rebooted into the Windows 8 Recovery Environment when your system wouldn't restart successfully.

The Windows 8 Recovery Environment is also available when booting your computer from a "repair disk" CD or DVD (you can type "recdisc" into the Search box available from the magnifying glass icon on the Windows 8 "Charms" bar, and then select the "recdisc.exe" icon to create such a disc). You can also create bootable USB from the "create a recovery drive" icon: type "Recovery" into the Search box, then select "Settings", then select the "create a recovery drive" icon.

The advantage to using System Restore is that most programs won't have to be reinstalled (and your personal files are kept safe, as well).

Hello,

I helped a friend upgrade his work computer from Windows 7 to 8. It mostly all went well except for two problems:

1. It doesn't want to run login scripts for their Windows SBS 2011 server, and
2. It won't recognize any printer we try to install.

I unjoined it from the network, and deleted the computer from the server, so now there shouldn't be any conflict with the server...

The first printer we tried to get to work was an HP P1006, and when we didn't have any luck, we tried a brand new Brother HL2270DW, but we STILL cannot get it to work, even though Brother tech support said it should.

Here's the last thing I tried: I went to devices and printers, click on any printer device, and
then "Printer server properties" at the top...
then go to drivers tab,
then click "Add..." which brings up the Add Printer Driver Wizard,
then click Next, and
then Next again for only x86 drivers,
then click the "Windows Update" button, and
then, after a pause, I select Brother on the left,
then "Brother HL-2270DW Series" on the right,
then click next,
then click Finish, and...

I get an error that says

Driver Installation Error
Windows can't instal the Brother HL-2270DW series kernel-mode print driver. To obtain a driver that is compatible with the version of windows you are running, contact the manufacturer.

Kernel mode driver? Straight from Windows Update? What's up with that?

Any ideas, anyone?

Thanks in advance,

A:Can't install any printer drivers, even from Windows Updat

Do you have a driver disc for the Brother? Its best to install devices using the vendor supplied drivers (either download or disc) than the way you are doing it. If you have a Vista or Win 7 driver it should be Win 8 compatible. However, if you only have an XP driver you can try installing it using the XP compatibility mode.

The same goes for the HP printer.

In most cases when installing devices such as a Printer, you FIRST run the vendor's installer and then only physically connect the device when the install program tells 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?

I have 100 windows 7 pc's on this network and only 1 pc is having this problem with 2 printers.  For 6 months now I have been googling and trying to fix the issues with 2 of her 5 printers showing "offline".  All printers are installed
the same way via the server here on site.  And only 2 of them are continually having this issue. 


I have changed SNMP
All the printers are on a static IP already
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printers via the server
I manually deleted the ports and reinstalled them manually using add printer/add port wizard
I have deleted the print queue and restarted print spooler on both her machine and my server
I reinstalled the print spooler on the local machine
I updated to the most recent manufacturers drivers for the printers

The printers in question are a Xerox 7800 and a Kyocera 5050 copier/scanner.  Al these printers are working and operatin fine on every other machine on the network here even while this one machine is showing offline.  I am at wits end with this
issue.  We have 2 of us in IT that serve this office and 7 remote offices to the tune of 300 employees (i know, its ridiculous), and I do not have an easy way to just rebuild her machine as we are swamped/this is a production machine/i dont have a temp
machine that I can put her on that will have all the applications she will need.  If someone has some magic they can send in a box I would be beyond grateful.

My Mom has an HP laptop. She recently purchased a new HP printer and I have been trying for the last 4 days to get it to install/connect. I've been in touch with HP but the links they provide aren't resolving the issues.

First, using the CD that came with the printer: hangs up at around 85-90%. It doesn't not show up as installed. I copied the CD to the desktop, modified Setup.exe in CFFExplorer and Run as Administrator and it appears to completely install; however, when I go to Device Manager, it says no driver is found. I sometimes have the option to update and sometimes that seems to work but I can't access it through Add a Printer (which has the green bar run across the top, then pulsate and freeze).

Trying to install using the driver I download from HP results in no installing screen appearing but it does hang up in the background and the only way to stop it is to Restart. The same thing happens if I try to use HPs Wizard.

I've installed several HP printers through the years and not had this much trouble. That doesn't even include the dozens of times I've had to reinstall my own HP printer because of its contrariness!

Additionally, attempts to uninstall the old printer results in it hanging up/freezing soon in to the process, whether I try to uninstall from the Start menu, file or Uninstall program. I'm not even being able to get the Windows Updates to install - that process also just hangs up/freezes. FYI - I've not checked her machine in a while so there are ma... Read more

A:Unable to install printer drivers, uninstall old printer, update Windo

Hi columbia93, welcome to 7F!

Printers are touchy animals, when installing any printer you have to follow the install procedures exactly as described by the manufacturer.

This may be the root cause:





Quote:
FYI - I've not checked her machine in a while


Not that you haven't been able to check it, but there may be an accumulation of problems on your Mom's machine that also are stopping the update process.

I am trying to find one of 7F's tutorials on improving performance of a computer, but it boils down to cleaning out all detritus that a machine can accumulate of a period of time.
I did find this but there is another one: Hard Disk Space - Free Up and Recover The first three options would help

Run Antimalware/virus scans, run a Check Disk then a sfc /scannow then try to uninstall that old printer driver, and if that works shut down the machine, and try to install the printer without the HP disk, when it looks, but asks if you have the disk say no and allow the OS to install what it has.
It is my understanding that HP Printer drivers already come with Windows 7.

But do the cleanup first and see if that helps.

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
Luftra

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.

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

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?
My printer is an HP PSC 1401 All-in-One

Thanks

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.

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!
