Part of printer's software missing?

Q: Part of printer's software missing?

I had a desktop with WinXP that my Lexmark X1270 all-in-one printer was hooked up to. I have since got rid of that pc and got a laptop with Vista (I know nobody likes it, but it appeared that that's the only choice now.) that I hooked my printer up to. While it does print, a part of it is missing. It just so happens to be a crucial part to me. The All-In-One center isn't on my pc (I've tried reinstalling a couple times and updating driver/software at Lexmark's site), that being the part where you can copy and scan things. Anyone able to help?

Preferred Solution: Part of printer's software missing?

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: Part of printer's software missing?


I like Vista for a start - I haven't had to do a fresh install once yet!

This may sound a cop out but have you asked Lexmark if this is a common issue? - you never know they may even help.

Another shot is, are you installing it as an administrator? i.e right-click on the setup.exe and Run as Administrator.

My lexmark wifi printer wasnt working so I uninstalled the software thinking re-installing would solve the problem. Now, whenever I try to re-install the Lexmark software, as soon as it installs the uninstall option (part way through loading the application and I know this as it updates as installing) it starts to uninstall itself. I have tried countless driver sites but they all have the same issue. Is this a Windows 7 issue?

I's like to know about an Epson Stylus CX6600 which was handed down to me with the software missing. when first I hooked it up to my computer, it was recognized... but that was it...from then on no signs of life... Checking online I was directed to gutenprint homepage for a recommended driver, I have been reading that it is mostly for the scanning function which supposedly my Photoshop can jump in and handle. so that is where I am, I figure I need the software but after searching around I can't find it unless I buy another "all in one". Is there a place to get the software, without too much expense?

Hello - I am running Windows Vista and just in the past few weeks I have noticed that drivers for my Bamboo tablet and HP AIO printer are missing - software utilities are there, but no drivers.  In addition, I use GoToMyPC to access this Vista system
remotely and I have to continually reinstall the host software.  I don't know if this is a problem with Vista or with Webroot Antivirus.  I have disabled my firewall and persists, so I don't believe it's a firewall issue. Please help.

A:Tablet and Printer Driver, GoToMyPC host software missing/deleted in Vista

What will appear when open Device manager?
From your description, you mentioned Webroot Antivirus, I would suggest boot into clean boot to have a test.
To place the computer in a clean boot state, follow the steps below:
1.     Click Start, type msconfig in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
2.     On the General tab, click Selective Startup.
3.     Under Selective Startup, click to clear the Load Startup Items check box.
4.     Click the Services tab, click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then click Disable All.
5.     Click OK.
6.     When you are prompted, click Restart.
7.     After the computer starts, start the installation and check whether the problem is resolved.
If possible, it is better to uninstall Webroot Antivirus and check.

I have an All-in-one inkjet printer and the PC is recognising the scanner part, but not the printer part. The printer is connected directly to the PC with a USB cable.

When not connected to the PC the device copies documents ok, so I know the printer part should be working.

This has happened since I changed all four cartridges, but as they print ok when not connected to the PC, I don't understand why the PC doesn't see it. It has worked fine for 2 years.

In "Devices and Printers" it shows the Brother DCP-195C but has an exclamation point next to the icon. But when I click Troubleshoot, it checks and then says nothing it wrong.

Any ideas what is wrong please?

A:PC not recognising printer; only scanner part

OK I'm being told by someone who works with printers to remove the printer, uninstall the software, and reinstall.

Here's my dilemma: I also just bought a color laser printer so I might not need the printer function on the inkjet as much - if at all.

I am concerned that if I uninstall and reinstall the All-in-one that the bit that is working currently - the copier and scanner - will also stop working. Is that likely to happen, or am I being a wuss?

I have 2 home comps both running XP pro. Both comps have D-link 530 ethernet card connected via crossover cable. The guest comp works perfectly. When I tried to use the wizard on the host comp it failed so I tried to do it manually. When I right click My network places/properties all I get is a white screen! I've down loaded all the fixes from windows and made sure the drivers are the latest. XP recognises the ethernet card and says its working without problem. All I can think is that some of the network section of XP has got damaged, shortly before this problem I had to restore system because a scanner beta driver messed XP up. Is it possible to do a repair as on Win98 or check if all of this part of XP is functioning? If not can I do a re-install of XP? thanx in advance ...Kalox

A:could part of XP be missing??

You can run a repair of xp with the cd. During what appears to be an install you should see the option to repair instead of install.

Hello, please help.. getting a 0x000000d1 error on win 7 pro x64.

This is a clients laptop, only one month old with factory installed win 7 pro. Only updates, office 2013, outlook 2010, Avast AV and some company bespoke non-invasive software installed.

Been getting these BSODs for the whole time since active usage.

I've tried lots of google threads without success, I think it's a driver issue??

I'm really stuck here, although I'm an 'IT Guy' with 15 years in the business I've never looked into diagnosing dump files etc.

I appeal for your help, please find attached the collected sys info/dumps.


A:Win 7 x64 BSOD - I know it's software but which part?

Lets take a look.

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If kernel debugger is available get stack backtrace.
Arg1: 0000000006f77320, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
Arg4: fffff880058d9b3d, address which referenced memory
So we tried to read invalid/pageable memory at an IRQL of two which is an illegal operation that will always result in a bugcheck.
Whether the memory was pageable or invalid is still unknown as the dump file hasn't saved that information.

Hello Everyone,

If you are not familiar with my previous post, please see 'Problems while installing software (XP)' I really don't want to waste space by repeating all of that.

I'm grasping at straws right now, I have not been able to find anything even remotely like this, and there are no response to me earlier post, the one mentioned above.

Is it possible that there is an install that is still trying to work, in the background? I have kill the process on some of the installations that appear to hang. Could the installer be hung in the middle of some other installation?

If so, any ideas how I would kill it?

I can't even do a system restore, or run things as an administrator (as suggested in previous postings) because they all seek permission for me to continue and I end up right back at the same dilemma...

A:Fresh Install of Win Pro 64 Missing part of HD

If you're wondering why your 320GB drive only shows 297-8GB, then that's normal. See this thread for an explanation why.

HDD's - the Advertized size vs the Actual size.

On top of that, system restore points and shadow copies can take a lot of space up from all the points made over time. You can delete all points except the last one from time to time, if you were so inclined to. But remember, if you delete them, you won't have them later on to fall back on.

About your ati drivers, I don't ever install my graphic card drivers from WU, from past screw ups with them, I always get the CCC, or just the drivers from the official site, AMD, and just hide the graphic card updates from WU.

I have a Toshiba M400 tablet running Windows XP Tablet Edition SP2.

Today the taskbar appears to have become corrupted. Basically, the part of the taskbar where the buttons representing running programs should show has disappeared. Hence, I cannot switch between running programs by clicking on their taskbar buttons.

Here's what appears in the taskbar now, from left to right:

Start Button
Tablet PC Input Panel Button (TPCIPB for short)
Language Bar
Notification Area

The area where the running programs appear would normally show between the TPCIPB and the Language Bar. Instead, the TPCIPB occupies all of that space, more than half of the taskbar, and much wider than its normal size.

Right-clicking on the taskbar doesn't give me any options for turning the missing part of the taskbar on or off, so I'm perplexed. Any ideas?

Hi Guys,

so sorry for writing you if this is something that is usual and you already have cleared this issue.

I am Ranko, from Europe ( Serbia, but in the eyes of world not so desired country so I do not mention it... but great food , great parties and the most beautiful girls should compensate )

Ok. What I did. During Win 7 installation on my new Lenovo G780 ( 500gb HDD ) , I have deleted system ( 0 ) partition first.

Win 7 offered/created 30gb system, 30gb primary, 440gb primary 2 ( unallocated ) and one Lenovo OEM partition 1mb.


As my friend said , always first go from behind but I didint.

Now I am missing 30gb of space, and can not retrieve it. So if I do installation from the beginning i just have 470 GB of space to alocate to partitions ( for example 100mb system , 100gb Primary & 369gb Primary 2 )

So 30GB seems lost. I have installed win 7 and run diskmgmt.msc and only 1 disk with 470gb is shown.

I tried linux with that partition software and the same... it shows just 470gb of space...30GB are missing/lost/not existing.

Once again... so sorry guys for posting this issue since maybe it is something that is common, but I really do not want to give up. It is not up to 30GB , it is about the principle , I have to retrieve it!

What to do ? Please help ... I promise to post some video, pics of Belgrade/Serbia girls to ease up a bit your work

Question: My son has a 30 GB data partition on the drive. He deleted several large files (burning images and such) and expected to see about 7.5 GB free space. Instead, he got 500MB free space and about 7. GB disappeared.

Win XP reserves a max of 3.6 GB for restoral acc to the control panel. He couldn't find the missing space in Norton Utilities, either, ie the space was occupied, but no files were listed.

Western Digitals "Data Lifeguard" returns that the hard disk has no errors. We wiped the partition with Norton Wipe Info. Now the 30 GB partion shows a 29.3 GB capacity and 3.43 GB used, but no files are to be seen. Norton shows 24.7 KB worth of Recycler and System Volume informatin, but no info on the rest of the 3.43 GB. We reduced the Norton Unerase Protection to 600 Mb on that partiton, but there was no change in the 3.43 used. With the NTFS file system we shouldn't have cluster waste. So what gives? Any ideas?

I produce documents for use in another office where they have an OKI6200dn printer but I can't load the software/drivers for that printer onto my Win 7 64x as I can't get passed the 'search' for the printer (which clearly is not here). I have down loaded the latest drivers for this OS.

A:Installing printer software withour printer

Hi potshot. Welcome to SevenForums.

Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers.

Click on "add printer"

Then click on "add a network,wireless or bluetooth printer"

Click on "The printer I want isn't listed"

You will then be given the option to find a printer by name or TCP/IP address.

By browsing you should be able to add the printer in your other office

Hope this helps.

I downloaded Printers' drivers, one for HP and the other for Epson by accessing their web-sites.

Both are USB-connection and working fine, however icons of both printers on, ... Start > Device and Printers,.... there are no printers' icons, even though other devices, such as thumb-drive, monitor, keyboard and others.

Just wonder why icons of both printers are missing on 'Device and Printer?'

Thanks for your help in advance.

If you ordered a Dell XPS 15 (9550) without a standard SATA hard or SSD drive:   When you open the case to install a new one, you will find that the basic cable, connector and drive 'bumpers' are missing.  If you order a SSD or hard drive from Dell to upgrade your XPS 15, you will also find that the cable, connector and bumpers are not included!
This is exactly what I discovered when I opened the case of my new XPS 15 to install a 1 Gb SSD drive.  Here is a photo of the empty drive cage.  A diagram with the part numbers is included below:

I Googled this problem and discovered that many XPS 15 owners ran into the same roadblock.  On the Dell Support Forum, owners reported that Dell sales and support offered varying part numbers, which were often not available.  So I contacted Dell Support.  A very helpful CSR confirmed the correct part numbers (shown below with a diagram), but told me it would be two weeks (minimum) before they could be delivered to me.  I offered to pay for Next Day Air.  Nope.  Two weeks.
Frankly, this is incredible.  Dell should include these basic parts when they ship every XPS 15, and the missing parts should be available for immediate shipment to affected customers.  I had to find a vendor on Amazon and pay $80 ($12 from Dell), plus pay for rush shipment.
Here are the part descriptions and numbers, plus a diagram showing where they attach to the drive and motherboard:

Hi ravindrankv

Not exactly sure what you mean --- when you say you have to reinstall/upgrade Windows to fix a printer problem. That's not usually necessary.

Just go to the Hp website (hp.com) and download a driver for your printer from there, and install it. It should stay installed.

If the printer isn't directly connected to your computer, but you access it through a network -- it might not show up when it is turned off or disconnected.

If your computer shows many signs of instability or unusual behavior, make sure to scan for malware: your computer could be infected.

Best of luck

I would like to be able to add a media card reader to my 3010MT Optiplex Dell PC system. I noticed some machines were equipped with one 5.25" bay sharing a slim optical drive and media card reader in one bay.

What options do I have, do I have to change out my current optical drive or can I buy a media card reader that will fit with correct caddy etc in my current available 5.25" space below my optical drive.?

Basically wanted part numbers for 19 in 1 mcr for my 3010MT. Also, would a generic 5.25 device work?
