How to make the printer device picture show up in Devices?

Q: How to make the printer device picture show up in Devices?

In our small office, we have a couple of shared large-format plotters and multi-function print/copy/scan devices. Due to the nature of one of the plotters, we're having to install the plotter directly on each workstation using the device's LAN IP address, as opposed to connecting to it through the Server.

When I connected to the device through the server, the icon for the device on my workstation would change to a picture of the actual correct model plotter. However when I connect directly using the plotter's IP address, it shows the generic Printer icon.

Is there a way to make it show the picture of the actual device instead of the generic icon, even when connecting to it directly?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I'm trying to fix an hp pavillion dv6704nr laptop running windows vista home premium. It has the little red x on the speaker in the lower right hand corner. The owner said it has been there for some months. I have tried downloading the current audio drivers for the computer but every time I try to install the driver, I get an error that says the device couldn't be found.

The first time i restarted the computer, after the driver installation failed, the audio came back and worked fine, until I had to restart the computer. Now I keep getting the same error and nothing i have found so far online has helped.

There are no yellow triangles in the device manager and the device list isn't showing the category for "sound, video and gaming etc." at all.

Please help. I did a search but the other threads didn't solve this problem for me.
Thanks in advance.

I see three different audio driver packages at http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...ct=3646926#N661.You need to find the right one to install. If you install one and the system doesn't work properly...please uninstall it before trying the next one.Installing the wrong one won't do anything harmful to your system...it just won't do any good to leave it installed.Louis

I have a Toshiba laptop, model L505-ES5018. I had Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit installed on here, but decided to reformat my hard drive using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. After the reformat was finished, I ran Windows Update and it found several items to download and install for me. I noticed that it also found optional items to download and install for me, so after all the important updates installed, I ran the optional updates. After all of this installed, I checked Device Manager to see if there were any errors and I found nothing. I assumed everything was fine. I decided to check Devices and Printers and under my laptop icon, there was a yellow icon with an exclamation point on it. I decided to run the troubleshooting option when I right-clicked the icon....it gave me a solution to download a Toshiba password utility program, so I did that and nothing happened, even after restart. Same icon appeared. When I clicked on the icon a second time, I noticed that the model of my computer at the bottom of this window, changed from L505 to TIAS. I have no idea what this is. I decided to do another reformat on my hard drive. This time, I ignored the optional updates. I checked Devices and Printers again, the same icon appeared but the model of my computer said L505, like it should. There is something in the optional updates that is changing this. Could it be the Intel chipset driver that the optional update is pushing? I'm not sure. I went back to Device Manager, th... Read more

Recently I tried to install an OKI C5250 Laser Printer on my Windows 7 x64 system. This printer is connected by USB. As instructed by OKI I used the Vista x64 drivers. These however would not install.

However I notice that when I select Print in Word or another app, one of the listed printers is the OKI C5250 but this printer does not appear in the Devices and Printers screen.

How can I find where this printer is installed and how do I get it uninstalled?

Any help greatly appreciated.

A:Printer does not show in "Devices & Printers"

What I would do in this situation....
Use these drivers.....

Make sure you follow the directions that the drivers tell you by the T!
and dot your I's

second... you are going to have to turn your sharing on since you are connecting it by USB

Once Sharing is enabled....through Windows 7... you use this function.
I will show you a picture.. and your printer, whatever you called it during the sharing will show up here.

I have two USB audio devices that I cannot seem to properly install drivers for.
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 & KORG MicroKONTROL

I am in communication with both product tech support teams but so far they have not offered a successful solution. As the same issue is occurring with multiple devices I thought it might be an OS issue.
I run Win 7 Home Premium x64

The problem is as follows:

The product drivers install correctly without error. However, instead of showing up in the Device Manager in either USB Controllers or Sound Controllers they both show in Other Devices with a yellow exclamation mark.
I have tried the following fix from this site (USB Driver - General Fix for Problems) and this actually enabled me to access a portable HDD that wasn't working, but it didn't fix the issue for my 2 audio devices.
I have also tried right clicking on the devices in Other Devices, selecting Driver Update. I then find the correct drivers listed but when I hit install I get the following error message on both:
"Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it. One of the installers for this device cannot perform the installation at this time."

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A:Audio USB Devices showing under Other Devices in Device Manager

Could it be the two devices are competing with each other and the driver installer gets confused? Details on the devices and the needs to use two of the same type probably would be helpful.

Note: Device manager lists appropriate bluetooth antennae.  Some items are still showing up ok, but many (some new, some previously paired) are listed as unknown now, so they are useless to me until this is resolved.  This is a fairly new Flex5 (bought at Microcenter about a month ago).I ran the Lenovo "Vantage" program to get the latest bluetooth drivers on board.Tried uninstalling BT driver and running manual install of intel and Qualcomm drivers.  Windows10 is not seeing the Intel ones, I think as when I try to change the driver to the intel ones I only see the the QualcommAtheros and the generic bluetooth drivers available.  I ran that installation a number of times, but havn't been able to try the Intel drivers yet.  I'm not sure if they will fix the problem, but would like to try them, unless someone here can point me at something else that may be the cause.  Thanks for any info!

i have installed the correct driver for this belkin bluetooth usb dongle model: F8T012XX1

but in device manager, it has the belkin device and microsoft bluetooth enumerator, which is great. but when u get further down the list. it has a tab named "other devices" and then a subtab with "bluetooth peripheral device" which has an exclemation mark on it.

i have searched for driver software using the update service but it cant find no update.

i have looked for the name of the manufacturer but found nothing.

i then disabled the unknown device, and sent a picture to my mobile phone. which confirmed that it was not the belkin bluetooth device. so i uninstalled the unknown device, restarted the computer. then when i logged in, it said that it had found a new device and wanted me to find the CD that came with it..

i would be greatful if any1 could help me on this..

Does anyone out there have any experience with Ulead Picture Show 2.0? I'm looking for slideshow software, and am considering it. I have tried a few freeware and trial versions of other programs, but was always disappointed in the sharpness of pictures (on TV) of the final product. Most of them seemed to be a lot less sharp than when I just stick a disk of JPEGS in (a DVD player) and view them. If you've used Ulead, are you satisfied. PC Magazine gave it a pretty good review, but actually gave it's Editors' Choice to ProShow Gold, which costs quite a bit more. Any input would be appreciated.

my hp 6500 officejet is sending out real small type [letters]and numbers. My glasses are strong enough to read what my printer is putting out help needed as usuall thanks for anything. bob s i have the page site type ;increased to 150% but its not printing that size type

A:Can anyone tell me how to make too make printer letters bigger

If you are trying to print out something like webpage content, you can change the font size in Print Preview by changing to 150% or whatever and then select the number of pages to view.

Experiment with the sizes up from Shrink to fit then change the number of pages you want to view it in and you will see what the text output will look like in the varying number of pages and then you can select how many pages for what will suit your eyes.

If you leave the number of pages at 1 then it will probably revert to Shrink to fit and so print out in the smaller font size.

Once you are happy with how you think it will print, then click on the printer icon in the top left of the menu bar.

If you are printing a doc from a word processing program, then set the font size and type prior to creating the document within the program, otherwise you will need to highlight all of the text first before you can change to how you want it, and changing those settings after you've created the doc may not stick.

The monitor is an LG Flatron and when we hooked it up to his computer and turn it on, I'm not sure, but I think the computer isn't sending any signal to the monitor. Because the monitor turns on and the blue light comes on, then the LG symbol comes up, but after that it says power saving mode. It won't show anything else, it just stars hibernating.

A:For a Picture Slide Show....

Well, I personally have been asked to do this before by a teacher friend of mine. I used PowerPoint 2010 for that and used the metro design with the pictures. I just made a mosaic on each slide, used a fade in animation on each photo and staggered the timing, then had a blank black slide fade in and did it again. I used certain transition animations based on the tempo of the song at that particular timing. It was intense! The song I used was by Grouplove, Tongue Tied. I find it's a fantastic song to go with an emotional, memory packed presentation. It's about 3 and half minutes long. Another song that can be used is Spun by Grouplove too, but I'd go with Tongue Tide as you can cry and sing along with it and it's really happy!

I'd recommend PowerPoint for this, especially 2013, as you can save the presentation in not only in a .wmv video file but publish it onto a CD. Pretty handy! You won't get quality loss either.

1. I set up Vista Business on a freshly-formatted hard drive. I then joined my computer to a Windows Server 2003 (SP1) domain and gave my domain user account administrative privileges. 2. I then installed Office 2007 Enterprise Edition and transferred my files and settings from my old WinXPSP2 hard drive to the Vista system using the transfer wizard from the Vista DVD. 3. I then used the add printer wizard in Vista to install network printers all of which worked fine when I printed test pages. The domain installed XP drivers for the printers.4. I then took my system home, resumed from hibernation, and used the add printer wizard to install a Canon ip 5200R inkjet printer using Vista's in-box printer driver and create a standard TCP-IP port for the printer. (The printer has a static IP address on my home non-domain network). When the icon for the local Canon printer appeared in the printers window, the icons for all the network printers disappeared.5. When I returned to the office, I found that I was unable to use the add-printer wizard to add the network printers back to my system. The add printer wizard sees the network printers, but when I select a network printer I receive an error message with connect to printer at the top and the message "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Make sure that you have typed the name correctly, and that the printer is connected to the network."Can somebody help me troubleshoot this?

A:Windows cannot connect to the printer. Make sure that you have typed the name correctly, and that the printer is connected to...

I have a network with a PC (XP) with two local printers that I could print to from my Vista Business laptop either wirelessly or on the wire. 
I too experienced this problem after installing SP1 (which was a nightmare unto itself) on the laptop. 
This "fix" worked for me. 

Go into Control Panel
Underneath the Hardware and Sound category, click on Printer
Click on Add a printer from the top menu
Click on Add a Local Printer
Choose Create a New Port with type of port remaining Local Port, then click Next
In the Port Name box type the path to the printer you wish to connect to and Click OkEx. \\mycomputer\myprinterIf the computer you wish to connect to is named Bob and the printer is called HP then the path would be \\Bob\HP
In the Install Printer Driver
screen, select your printer from the list or choose Have Disk and find the location of the printer drivers on the computer then click Next and then click Finish.
You should now see the printer installed in the Printers window.
Right-click on the printer and click Properties
On the General tab, click Print Test Page to test the printer.
You should now (hopefully) be able to printer from Windows Vista to this networked printer without any problems.

I have an MX850 and an MX870 printer both connected to my LAN.

I also use an application called CD Label Print. When I started that program I noticed that there were 3 MX850 printers listed, the original and a (Copy 1) and (Copy 2).

So I went to devices and printers and saw there was a MX850 and a MX850 (Copy 2). No (Copy 1). So I removed the (Copy 2) printer and fax.

I went back to CD Label print and saw that it still said MX850 and MX850 (Copy 1).

Went back to devices and printers and sure enough, MX850 was gone and MX850 (Copy 1) was present. So I pressed F5. It changed to MX850. Press F5 again, it changed back to MX850 (Copy 1).

It changes non-stop. It alternates betweem the two settings every time I press F5.

How do I fix this?

oh, btw; I've tried uninstall re-install. I've also contacted Canon support who are dumbfounded. I also had to manually remove the registry entries and start menu entries because the canon uninstaller doesn't so it.

And.. I cannot use CD Label print. Each time I try to print a label it insists on asking where to save the file, rather than printing it.


A:Printer name in Devices and printer keeps changing every few seconds

Found the solution...

For some bizarre reason the port assigned to both printers was FILE: God knows how that happened.

Once I set them to the correct ports that were created at install I could print properly and the alternating name in devices and printers stayed fixed.

A:Camera will not show picture on screen

Have you pushed the “Monitor” button to the lower left of the 4-way buttons? It cycles the display on and off. Can you see anything when you press the Menu button?

Assuming you know about the monitor switch you are probably going to find your LCD isn’t going to work. There is no menu setting I can think of that would cause the LCD to not display when you cycle the monitor switch.

And if you can’t see anything in menu mode the camera will have limited utility even though it has an optical viewfinder.

Then I disconnected the graphics card and put it back in. All the same, my graphics card still works, but I had to connect the monitor to the motherboard integrated card. When my system booted up (Windows 7 Ultimate), in devices and printers tab, under the computer icon was a yellow questionmark, saying that the PCI memory controller misses drivers, but it can't find them on the Internet. My MB is AMD 690v , and my graphics card is ATI HD 4670. What should I do? PLEASE HELP ASAP. Thanks.

A:Monitor doesn't show picture!

You motherboard may contain that AMD chipset but that is not the motherboard make and model. You need to identify the motherboard make and model and go to the motherboard manufacturer's website to find drivers for it. You would go to ATI's website for graphics drivers if you ever need them.

That said, you shouldn't suddenly be missing these drivers. Did you take precautions against static electricity discharge while you were cleaning the insides of the PC? Hopefully reinstallation of the motherboard drivers will be enough.

By the way connecting your monitor to the integrated graphics does not mean your Radeon HD 4670 card still works. It only works if your monitor is plugged into the 4670 and you get a normal output.

My problem is as follows- In BIOS I cannot have an ATA drive (serial, so it uses SCSI tech) and an IDE drive co existing. Somehow, I had it before where my ATA hard drvie was NOT a primary or secondary master/slave. It was my boot device. I messed something up and now for it to boot I must go into my BIOS and change to IDE settings to make my SATA port into a logical primary master. If this is done, then the devices on the IDE will NOT LOAD. Therefore, it is either I have a boot drive, or I have a cd rom and dvd drive, not both like it was before. I think the key lies in somehow getting back a SCSI controller or something, I dunno. Here is the background information on this topic (2 threads put into 1 with minimal editing)-
(Guys this is a plea for help, I have no idea what else to do, and without a cd rom drive my computer is close to worthless. Please help I beg you)

I had a mystery DVD SCSI drive. Today I figured it was useless because 1. I didnt think I had SCSI because I do not have a SCSI card and 2. Because I only have one dvd drive and I know it is not SCSI. So I uninstalled it. When I restarted, I was hit with DISK ERROR INSERT SYSTEM **** AND PRESS ENTER. Crap.... . So I open my system up, check the cable (the ATA cable for my hard drvie comes loose very easy). And restarted. Same message. Overm and over again. Ok I thought, w/e I always have a backup. So I insert my lovly Windows XP CD, hoping it will save my @$$. Of course not . I ask for a reapir, it says it... Read more

There can be many reasons, but one can be due to bluetooth.
Do this.

Click Start button, type services into the search program and files box. This brings up a list in the menu, select Services. This should open a list of local services on your system.., Find 'Bluetooth Service" and make sure it has started, right click and set to 'automatic' , Select "Bluetooth Support Service" and start, set to automatic ) This has been found to work in more than a few situations with your problem

Hi, all... I have a Promise Ultra133 TX2 IDE controller card which affords me two additional ATA133 channels, each with two hard drives attached. I also have a single HDD attached to the on-board IDE channel, and a DVD drive and DVD burner attached to the secondary on-board IDE channel.

The thing is, when I click on 'My Computer' it only shows 5 devices - my primary on-board IDE HDD, my DVD drive (not the burner) and three of the four HDD's connected through the controller card. They don't show up in Disk Management either. The drives are lettered consecutively (IDE primary channel HDD, C:, DVD secondary channel, D:, then E:, F: and G: for the (three visible of four) HDD's attached via the controller).

Why can't I see these two drives? Is there a limit on how many physical drives you can install on XP?

A:7 installed IDE devices, only 5 show up

Hello there,

I'm running Windows XP, SP3. This is a friends computer that I'm trying to fix. It had a virus which I removed, however it left behind a damaged computer. Now there are no network devices that show up in "Network Connections" or in Device Manager. I tried to reinstall the drivers, but I got this error: "The Realtek Ethernet Controller was not found. If Deep Sleep Mode is enabled Please Plug [sic] the Cable".

I tried running a Linux distro from a CD and the LAN worked just fine. So it's an OS problem not a hardware problem.

I also tried:

netsh int ip reset reset.log
netsh winsock reset catalog
but that didn't help. Any ideas?

A:No network devices show up

what were the results from the tcp/ip reset - i have added the instructions below

can we see an screen shot of the device manager - see how below

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.

Does anybody know of such a program and provide a link please?

You can use the 'Sketch' tool in Paint, or download the Image Resize Tool Powertoy from Microsoft's website, but I'd stick with paint, because I'm a minimalist.
