Failed installation of printer drivers in Win 7

Q: Failed installation of printer drivers in Win 7

This is actually a 'sticky', so I'll leave it up to the administrator to move it.

Over many years, I have accumulated a fair amount of knowledge about Windows computers and have become the "tech support guy" for a number of friends. Problem is, they tell their friends and the latter call me about their problems. As you can see, this can turn into a geometric progression, so I started charging for fixing their problems.

One of those paying customers recently had a problem with his 4-yr.-old Acer laptop: It suddenly stopped connecting to the Internet (via an Ethernet cable). To make a long diagnostic story short, it turned out that lightning had struck a tree on the next-door neighbor's property, and it fried his Comcast modem. Comcast replaced the modem, but the computer still would not connect. The reason: Enough of the lightning had made it past the modem to fry the onboard Ethernet chip. All other functions of the computer worked, which I found bizarre. If lightning makes it to the motherboard, the entire board is usually fried.

While the wireless capability of the computer still worked, it was a low-end laptop and the OS was Vista. I gave him the choice of (a) buying and installing a router and connecting wirelessly or (b) give the laptop to his grandson, who needed one, and put the $$ he would have spent on a router into a new Win 7 laptop. He opted for (b).

In his search for a new laptop, he came upon a flat bargain: A Toshiba with an AMD quad, 6GB RAM, 17.3" screen, Windows Experience Index of 5.8, for $499. After buying it, he gave it to me to configure.

The problem: He has an HP PSC 1315 all-in-one printer. After returning the configured computer to him, he could not print anything. That is, when he plugged the printer in, Windows failed to load the drivers to make the computer work. I tried downloading and installing the full driver file (360MB) with his Avast AV disabled. Failed. I finally concluded that something that loaded at startup might be blocking the installation, so disabled all startup files and all services, except the basic MS files using msconfig, then tried the installation again. Successful!!

A pox on both their houses Toshiba and HP. There is no way the average computer user could have figured out how to successfully install the HP driver. Toshiba and HP should have anticipated that some service or startup program would make it impossible to install at least some printer drivers, and issued specific warnings about which programs/services could cause the problem. They didn't.

So, if you have a problem getting an HP driver installed on your Win 7 Toshiba, try disabling all but the basic MS services, and all startup items, then running the installation.

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.)

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium. I am having trouble with my printer, although it worked perfectly well uintil Wednesday evening, when I printed an email. I didn't use it on Thursday, but yestwerday Friday 13th I was unable to print a simple email, a message about possible firewall problem, which I didn't understand. I am not very computer literate, such jargon is no good to me. Following a Readers Digest Manual for Vista, I uninstalled my printer, now I can't get it installed again - the message 'Printer installation failed, operation could not be completed (error 0x00000643)' came up, which is gobbledegook to me - why can't computers use plain English?!

Hi guys, have spent a lot of time unsuccessfully installing an old HP deskjet 560c printer to my old windows 98 system. I inherited both from different people so don't have the MS systems disk but do have HP floppy. managed to get the 560c added as printer but when I tried to print I got the message: "Data is being sent to printer & printer is not responding. the printer is on and the ready lights are lit.

I'm using the cable to connect the pc and the printer that came with an old hp laser series II and it fit. neither microsoft nor hp has been of any help and i have exhaused my limited knowledge and am very frustrated. can you walk me through this? I have a home based business and rely on my printer for a living - can't afford a new system yet. Any hope? thanks a lot!

I have bought this notebook just yesterday and I found out that the wifi was super slow and unstable. So I tried (using an external adaptor) to download some other drivers and now the wifi connection works fine. Today I got new updates from the support assistant, that I have downloaded but that I can't install because it gives me error and fails. What should I do? Is it normal that I paid 800 euros for a latop that cannot connect to internet properly and that cannot install the "necessary" updates? I got a Realtek and Windows 10. I have restarted the laptop. Nothing works. I hope you have a solution for this, I am thinking to throw it from the window.

A:HP printer installation failed, error 2753

Hello and welcome:

We could probably provide better help if we had a wee bit more information...

A few basic questions:
Is this the Win7 Home Premium, 64-bit laptop listed in your forum profile?
What is the full MODEL NUMBER of the HP printer?
How are you trying to connect the computer to the printer -- local (USB), network (wired/Ethernet) or network (wifi)?
Have you had a look at this article >>HERE<< about "fatal errors" (scroll down to see the part about 2753 codes)? (This is a US URL. I hope you are able to see the information from your locale.)

Thank you for the information, if you can please provide it,

I need help fixing failed installation of drivers for a NIKON DSC COOLPIX L12-PTP digital camera.

I attached the USB cable and camera to my PC and got options. I chose Locate and install driver software. A window soon appeared with the message:

Windows found driver software for your device but encountered and error while attempting to install it.

Digital Still Camera

The account specified for this service is different for the account specified for other services running in the same process

There was no number assaciated with the error message.

I then tried to figure out after opening Task Manager as Administrator what the services are that should all be associated with the same account in the same process. The only process that I could see that seemed like it might be the appropriate one is NKMonitor.exe (PID 2636). I right clicked on it and then on go to services, but there was nothing highlighted to show any related services.

I opened the file location of the process and it was C:\Program Files\Common Files\Nikon\Monitor\NKMonitor. This is a program I downloaded a few days ago from Nikon's website to try and fix the problem I'm having with driver installation. I couldn't find the drivers for my camera on their website.

Can anyone tell me how I can find out what the process is that's associated with installation of the camera drivers? How do I find what all the services are that are running in that process?

I don't recall running into that error message. I see you have HP. I've had a string of them and found this forum to be excellent:

HP Business Support Center

It says "business" but it's not paid support. It's users answering questions like here. Just everyone on there has had HP machines for some time.

My inclination would be to uninstall the original software. But before doing too much I would try the HP support site. It also has all the original software, drivers, user manuals that came with the PC if it's a standard package.

Registration is free and when I signed up they accepted hotmail as an email with no complaints.

edit: that said you may get a good answer here still. The HP site is good to have in your bookmarks in any case.

I was trying to install a Dell laser printer onto someones laptop with Windows 2000. Towards the end of the installation, the computer rebooted due to a bad battery and the AC was accidently unplugged. Now right when I get into Windows before the login screen, the computer just reboots and I can barely see a flash of a STOP BSOD error but don't have any time to read it. I can get into safe mode and do stuff. I tried reinstalling the software and drivers but it gives me an error. I can't uninstall anything because it doesn't see anything installed. What can I do? Its a USB printer BTW. This is sort of an emergency thanks.

Hello Folks...........

My C: drive recently started giving me HD521-2W error when I ran "PC Doctor 5 for Windows" diagnostic multiple times in the past few weeks.

I created backup images of both the partitions on this 320 GB HD ( Active partition named "HP_Pavilion" and Primary partition named "HP_Recovery") onto an external USB drive using Macrium Free edition.

I later took PC to a PC repair shop and installed a new 320 GB WD hard drive. However, he DID NOT create 2 partitions as the old drive BUT he made this new drive bootable and downloaded all the necessary drivers.

My questions are :

# 1 ) Is there a tool or an utility I can use to download all the drivers CURRENTLY installed on the old hard drive onto a CD/DVD for later Clean Install of XP?

# 2) How can I make this new hard drive look exactly like the old drive - I mean, it must have 2 partitions using Macrium backups images I already created ?

I hope, I explained this situation to best of my knowldge and created least amount of confusion.

Thanks in advance for your help.

When I tried to install a new Canon Pixma ip6220D printer on my Sony Vaio Windows XP Media Edition w/ SP2 desktop I receive an error that the computer cannot detect the printer after I hook-up the USB cable to the computer from the printer. This is after a balloon dialog appears in the system tray noting that new hardware was found - the hardware being a Canon ip6220D. The Canon software notes that it could not detect the printer and that there was a printer driver failure. Eventually a Windows error box appears noting that an error occurred installing the new hardware.

I have the same problem with a printer that previously had no problems. That printer is a HP Photosmart 3210xi.

I ran malware check using Threat Fire 3 which didn't find anything.

I have tried different USB ports with no success. I have tried USB ports that other devices use with no success.

Any suggestions on how to attack this problem would be appreciated.

I came across an issue that I find confusing. Whilst trying to install a software to run a mobile USB flash modem, the software pops this message:

your current device installation settings is configured to prefer drivers from Windows Update over locally installed
drivers. This can cause Unlimited data Manager not to work correctly.

do you want to change the settings to prefer locally installed drivers over Windows Update?

What does it imply if I change my settings to prefer locally installed drivers over windows update drivers?
And can this action be undone and where/how? (I searched my machine but didn't find where this option is)

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:

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.

I use Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. My problem is: Whenever I try to print something (word, pdf, or any other file); printer spooler stops working and when I check the “Devices and Printers” all the printer drivers seem to be disappeared.

I checked the “Print Spooler” in the “Services” tool; and set the "Recovery after subsequent failures" option to “Restart the Service”. Therefore all the printer drives coma back after 1 minute. However the spooler stops immediately again when the uncompleted printing job starts; hence I can not print anything more than a page.

Earlier in this forum, someone posted that Microsoft issued a hotfix for this problem ( hotfix 2388142) which can be downloaded from article: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-US;2388142.

I downloaded this hotfix and tried to install, however it gives an error message of: “The update is not applicable to your computer” and quits installation.

I did uninstall and reinstall all the printer drives, but this did not help either.
Any suggestion?

A:Printer spooler keeps stopping and printer drivers keep disappearing

Yeah, I had the same issue. Even when I went into services and restarted it, it would shut back down and the printers would disappear. I tried working with the registry like a few suggested, but didn't help. The only fix that worked for me was to go back about a week on the restore point, and then all the printers reappeared and worked...

Hi guys,

Kind of annoying problem here... I have an HP LaserJet 1200 hooked up via USB to a Mac that is running 10.5 (Leopard). For the printer's first 5 years or so everything was great. I could get new computers set up to print to the printer with no troubles, until recently.

Recently, I upgraded my computer to Windows 7 and wanted to get the printer working again. I attempted to install the printer using the HP LaserJet 1200 PCL 6 printer drivers. It connected to the printer alright, but every time I printed it came out with a PCL XL Error: "Error: UnsupportedProtocol" instead of my document.

Now, every time I try to connect a new computer (Windows 7 or Windows XP, doesn't matter) the printer automatically installs the PCL 6 driver for the printer... which always prints out an error instead of the document I want. I can't find a way to manually choose the driver when I'm adding it because it's a network printer, not one that's locally hooked up.

I tried installing the PCL 5 driver manually, but the printer still ONLY wants the PCL 6 driver that gives me the errors. I tried to go to "Server Properties" while in Printers and Faxes to roll back the PCL 6 driver, but Windows can't find a driver to roll it back to.

Now, if I physically hook the printer up to the computer via a USB cable, it installs the PCL5 Driver and it works... but that's only when it's plugged directly in.

I work in IT doing Help Desk/Support for a company.

We want to give standard users restricted assess to a printer. If they are a manager they can print in colour, but if they are just a standard staff member they only get the option to print in black & white.

An example would be using a black & white driver for a colour printer. People who print to the Black & White device driver won't have the option for colour.

Is this possible and how so using Windows 10 & 7.

Thank you.

A:Creating two different printer drivers on the same printer?

I'm a Windows 7 person, however, perhaps I can give an educated guess. For the managers, create a color printer using the printer's provided drivers [or let Windows Update get them]. For the standard user, create a black and white printer coming as close to the specs of the color printer as possible. Let's say Zumba 2000A is the color printer. Give the managers Zumba 2000A. Give the standard users Zumba 1000A, the black and white printer. You will need to test from standard users' computers to see if this idea will work for each standard user. For a different reason, I did that once. I "created" an HP Laser Series II "printer" [which WU generously supplied the drivers for] , then installed my Brother HL-1440 [again WU generously provided the drivers for this printer also]. Solved my printing problem. Awhile later, finally, I was able to jettison both printers and just install the Brother printer correctly.

Thus I bought win xp pro sp2 and try to reinstall it, so I reboot fm cd rom and while the windows setup is starting, the system stopped and the message on my screen read as:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer, resume any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers, check your hard drive to make sure it is porperly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK/F to check hard drive corruption. then restart computer.

...now my other problem is that, how in the world I can follow the above steps if everything written on it are in japanase language? I also try to visit the manufacture's website, thinking that perhaps it help solve the problem but....i also need a japanase translator to understand it.

I would appreciate your help regarding this matter. Thank you.

I also have tried to install a technet version of Windows 7. This failed.

My rig is as follows:
Pentium D945PSN with Pentium D 2.8GHz
Gigabyte Nvidia 9800 GTX+
Dual monitor setup

I have attempted to upgrade from Vista 64 bit, and upon failure, I have tried clean installs thereafter.

The upgrade and every fresh install gets to the "Completing installation..." phase, goes about 30 seconds to a minute, the screen then flashes to black, and the setup crashes. Upon a restart, the setup reads an error message stating that setup encountered an error and must be restarted.

I had a copy of windows 7 beta (v7.0), and proceeded to install that. It worked perfectly. Installed in a half hour.

Versions of Windows 7 RTM attempted and downloaded multiple times, burned with different burners as well:

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (two different copies)
Windows 7 Ultimate x86 (two different copies)
Windows 7 Professional x64
Windows 7 Home Edition x64
Windows 7 Home Edition x86

I have tried updates, clean installs, and those clean installs varied in adding a full 1TB partition vs two 500MB partitions.

The rig was fully working with Vista x64, with no errors, and is currently running with the beta.

Any advice?

Hey everyone,

I have been trying to figure this out for a few days now, and I have pretty much given up, so hopefully someone here can help.

I am trying to dual boot my desktop with Win 7 and 8. So I wrote the Win 8 iso to my flash drive, booted up from it. It installed to the partition I made happily, rebooted, and showed the select OS screen. When I clicked the Windows Dev Build option, it pulls up the configuration screen, saying something along the lines of "Getting Devices Ready (some number)%". When it gets to this point, it gets up in the high 70s and 80s, then the screen goes black, the system reboots. At this point it goes through my BIOS stuff, then straight to a black screen. No option to pick an OS or anything.

I have tried this with 2 different downloads of the ISO and the same thing happened. I am trying it on my laptop now to see if it could be my desktop being dumb, but does anyone know what could be causing this?

My set up is just a basic one. One hdd, ASUS motherboard, gtx 560 gfx card. Could it just be the computer? Or did I do something wrong? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me

Hi guys, I've been trying to install CS5 for the last few weeks or so and keep on failing due to several Microsoft Msi files not installing. Even when attempted to install manually. I've tried almost everything and spent about 4 hours on a remote desktop with an Adobe rep to try and solve it.

These are the MSI files that fail.

They fail with the error code: 0x800736B3 when installed manually.

Oh and I'm installing it on Windows 7 Premium 64.

Hello cuterachana,It appears that you're trying to connect a 3.5ghz usb wireless dongle. That you're having an issue with the software for this. Unfortunately the software that you're inquiring about is not something provided by HP. You will have to contact the manufacture of the dongle for that specific software.I apologize for any inconveniences this may cause you.Thank you for posting on the HP Forums.

My laptop is a Compaq Presario CQ50. I ran a program called Speccy which listed my Audio card as Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 221 Intel(R) High Definition Audio HDMI I did a search at HP website and it found the current driver. When I installed it, it gave the following error msg.

Would appreciate advice on how to update my driver. I don't really know if a new driver will help, but my sound seems to stutter once in a while and I was hoping a new driver would fix this.

I have this DirectX installation problem where I cannot install any version of DirectX. I noticed it when I need to install DirectX 9 because it is needed by one of my installed application. When I tried to install the included DirectX file of that application, an

"An internal system error occured. Please refer to DXError.log and DirectX.log in your Windows folder to determine problem."

showed. (Please refer to the attachments for these files)

I also tried to download DirectX 9, thinking that included file of the application may be damaged or something, but unfortunately, same error occured.

Please, help me if you have time. If additional info is needed, please let me know. Thank you to all who will help.

P.S. I have a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit OS installed with a DirectX 11 (as per DxDiag).

I see this problem has been been discussed but no solutions have worked here.

I am installing the Windows 8 upgrage on a windows 7 professional 64 machine.

The upgrade assistant noted the DVD and Secure boot issues that I believe are common incompatibilities.

I ordered the $39.99 upgrade and tried to install and it fails out at 32%

Never asks for product key.

I have chkdsk/r/f, turned off Avast, backed up with no success.

Of course MS is not taking calls over the weekend for this little problem, so i remain frustrated and a little disappointed.

I expect they will make good but until then, any suggestions?


A:Windows 8 Installation has failed - 32%

Try redownloading from the email link.

Than make the ISO, & burn to DVD.

Try a upgrade install from the DVD:
Try a clean install.

so, i was reinstalling my laptop (Asus x550c) i used win 10 and it got buggy so i decided to install 8.1, everything was fine until the menu came up where u have to choose on which partiton you want to install and it stuck there, for about 2 hours, so i shutted down my laptop and it doesnt turn on now. what should i do? please dont tell me that its useless now.

please help!

A:windows 8.1 installation failed

Maybe the hard drive was going bad - if so, installing Win8 wouldn't help. You should be able to start the Windows install from a bootable CD or USB stick. But if the HD is bad you won't get much further. What are you using to install Win8.1, a CD or USB?

When you turn on the computer does the BIOS screen show? If yes, than you should be able to direct it boot from the USB (do you know how to make a "bootable" Win 8.1 installation disk?)

I'm not sure what I was thinking, but after the initial windows XP sp2 setup (formatting & copying files), it restarted and i removed the CD...

so it gets to the other half of the windows setup and it pops up: put the disc in, OK/Cancel... i put it in & hit ok, it doesn't understand, and it asks again, but this time for a folder location, default D:\I386, which is what i want so i hit ok... it doesn't get it.

theres no browse... pita because maybe i can't even tell if its reading the cd...

i reboot, i noticed the CD drive shows up in bios, i choose boot from cd... it goes directly to the 2nd half of setup, and fails all over again...

so i think maybe the CD is doing that because it sees a half-installed windows... so i get a generic boot cd... same thing happens.

i am stuck, and need help.

Hi all,

I was wondering if you could help me. A few months ago, I was trying to install my old printer on my new XP laptop. I inserted the disk and ran into trouble because (I think) I didn't have the correct print drivers on this new computer. Instead of messing with all that, I wound up buying a new, networking printer. I have the new one installed and it works beautifully.

The problem of this pop-up remains, though. I guess it's not really a problem -- just really annoying. Whenever I turn the computer on, it wants me to go through a wizard to help me complete the installation of the new device. Well, I don't want to install that old printer anymore. I've searched and searched, but can't figure out how to make that pop-up quit.

Any ideas? TIA!

Hi everyone,

We have a laptop at work that came with Windows 8. We purchased a digital license for Windows 8 Pro (called Windows 8 Pro Pack) and used this for months. The SSD failed and I received and installed a new SSD. However, the laptop had Windows 8 OEM (no disk) so I am not able to obtain that version of Windows. I tried installing Windows 8.1 Pro from a disk from another laptop however the 8.1 Pro update obviously cannot use the Windows 8 Pro Pack product key. I tried finding an ISO for Windows 8 but all I got was the Enterprise 30 day edition and I am unable to put in my Windows 8 pro license.
I've contacted Acer but they want me to purchase a recovery disk. I've contacted Microsoft and they said I have to ask Acer.
If anyone could pass on their knowledge I would be greatly thankful!

Just FYI - I have the key that the BIOS used with the Acer Travelmate P653 but I am unable to use it as I do not have an installation of that version of Windows. I've tried changing the product key but I am unable to activate either the original Windows 8 key or the upgrade to Windows 8 Pro key we bought.

A:Windows 8 OEM installation on a failed SSD

The Windows 8 Pro key will activate Windows 8.1 Pro - however, as an upgrade key the activation count gets used up with a hardware upgrade, and you will have to phone activate.

If you still have problems please post a diagnostic report from here...

I downloaded the trial version of Premiere Version CS3 and and tried installing it but by the end of the installation, it said that it had failed.
I shut down all other applications and my anti-virus and firewall, but that didn't work.
I thought maybe there was something wrong with the download file so I downloaded it again and ran the set up again but the same thing happened.
I kept trying to install it and every time, I would restart the computer and clean the registry, but nothing.
The only thing it did say was that the Shared Components installed successfully, but the Premiere Components had not.
The computer meets the requirements for the program.

Can anyone offer any help?
Thanks, I would greatly appreciate it.

A:Premiere CS3 failed installation on Win. XP

You would probably be better served if you called Adobe, told them you are interested in the product but want to play with the demo first. You might also look into alternative programs like Sony Vegas----costs less and does as much or more.
