Q: new to windows from mac - wont download printer drivers

Hi, I have used a Mac most of my life and just got a new laptop today with Windows 8 on it and I am struggling, ANYWAY, I just plugged in the USB cable from my printer to the laptop and pressed print on a word document and it prints but im pretty sure its using coloured ink to print out the black and its taking forever just to print one page, the thing is the printer setting/options seem to be lacking, there is no option to choose black and white or reduce the quality etc, i didn't have to download drivers because it just picked the printer up, however, i tried to download the drivers to to see if that would fix the problem but it won't let me, when i got into the control panel to the printer i tried to click on download drivers but i get an error window pop up called RunDLL with a message saying There was a problem starting C:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\x64\3\ep0nb0lb.dll The specified module could not be found.

Then when i try to click on 'support' again i get an error message saying the link is incorrect.

When i went to the epson website and downloaded the drivers, it downloaded them but when i clicked on them it wouldn't let me open them, another error message...

I dont know my way around these windows computers so its probably something everyone knows except me : )

Helppppppp..very frustrating...thanks : )

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.)

Have you tried going directly to the manufacturer's website and searching for the driver for your model of printer?

Hi I have had this issue for months since downloading windows 10 to my main computer, my laptop, and my prosurface 3.

I just bought a printer off the internet about a week ago. I plugged it into my computer and tried to install the drivers, but when I did they wouldnt install. I think the drivers might be outdated, if that is possible. I went on the companies website to look at their selection of drivers, and I found the printer that I purchased, unfortunately the drivers they had listed for it were for Windows 95, and 98 I believe. I have Windows XP on my computer, so I think that might be why they arent working. When I direct the computer to the folder where the drivers are it say something like "this folder doesnt contain information on your printer", or something like that. But that is the disk and software that came with the printer, and I even downloaded it off the website to be sure it was right, it still didnt work. Im truely a noob at this, so any help would be great. Thanks!

I have a Toshiba Satellite with Windows 7 64bit. I have an older printer (HP Photosmart C5280) which I downloaded the updated drivers when I got the laptop. They would not install. There is a fatal error at the end of the installation every time. The error does not have a number associated with it. I eventually ordered the disk from HP and tried an install from it. Same results.The print spooler is constantly being turned on by the install program so that means its always off which doesn't seem right to me. I think something is keeping that service off and may be the cause of my problems. Although I could be completely wrong too. lol I have no other printers installed.I have scanned the laptop with Malwarebytes, SuperAntispyware, AVG, and Advanced System Care. Then tried installing the drivers again with the same results as before.I posted in another thread on this website I was instructed to uninstall Advance System Care and then run the following programs: Adware Cleaner, Security Check, and Junkware Removal Tool. The results are attached in the preceding link.Thanks for your help!Shannon

A:Printer drivers wont install

Are you trying to use the standard HP installer? I wouldn't do that because of the amount of bloated and useless software that it installs along with the printer driver. Try to find the .inf files in the setup files and let the Windows Found New Hardware Wizard install the driver. When the wizard asks for the location of the driver file, give it the location of the .inf files on the installation CD. I did that for my HP Deskjet F4580.

I recently upgraded this old Dell M1530 Vista x64 laptop to Windows 8 Enterprise x64.

Apparently the sound company for it (Sigmatel) went out of business before Windows 7 was even released and their latest drivers are some ancient Vista drivers.

Should I download and install the Sigmatel drivers or continue to use the drivers that come with Windows 8? (They seem to be fine so far, just seeing if there's any other input on this).

Do you think that the Windows 8 drivers would probably be better based on the fact that they're much newer and made to run in 8, regardless of the fact that it wasn't made for my system specifically?

All I've ever really cared about is what has the best maximum output levels. I really hate sound drivers that are very limited in how loud you can make them output. My old laptop (this M1530) is actually better than my current Origin beast laptop in terms of sound because the sound driver on my new laptop (Realtek) doesn't allow very much loudness at all on a set of headphones. The only reason I ever liked the Sigmatel drivers is because they let you turn up the volume until it's so loud it could blow your ears (and your speakers) out.

Or perhaps it's hardware and has nothing to do with the drivers. I dunno, I'm too stupid.

Point is, drivers that came with my system that aren't designed to work with this OS or go with the Win 8 default drivers?

A:Should I download the old drivers or keep the Windows drivers?

There is a saying, "if it's not broke, don't fix it" so I would stick with the working one. You could save the old driver as a backup.

Don't know what's causing the problem, but suggest that your time will be better spent in getting the Windows 8 updates and then upgrading to 8.1 and getting all the 8.1 updates. Then if you want another anti-virus try again.

Use the NET Framework Cleanup Tool to remove it all from your computer.

Unless you have a need to install Microsoft .NET Framework, there's no need to install it.

If you do need it for some programs or drivers to install and work, version 3.5 SP1 is all you need.

Download and save the small setup file, then close all open windows first, then double-click the saved file to run it.

The install of version 3.5 SP1 also installs version 2.0 SP2 and 3.0 SP2.

Hi Guys
For the past two days I've had updates that wont install onto my computer. As soon as they finish installing another little yellow shield appears near the clock telling me there are updates ready to install again and they are the same ones. This keeps happening over and over with the same updates.
The updates are: KB979909 KB982168 KB2446704 KB2418241
I've checked in the add and remove program list in control panel and they are definitely not there. Ive tried to download them one at a time and with my anti virus turned off but still no go. This has been happening since 24/5/11.
I had an update installed on the 23/5/11(KB960043) without any problems which is on my Add and Remove Program list which makes me think that maybe it's a Microsoft update problem and not a problem with my pc.
Anyone have any idea for a fix for this?

Many thanks in advance Rod.

See this link where an answer was given by Microsoft relating to the 2nd update, but it should be relevant to all.

Seems that an uninstall, cleanup and reinstall should take care of the problem.

Okay guys, this is pretty weird. I forgot that I uninstalled my anti virus 1 week ago and now my computer goes crazy. It won't let me open the Windows update, System Restore and Download/Install .exe and AntiViruses. When I try to download Anti virus' (Avast,Avira, ESET, MSE, Malwarebytes) all fail at 99% of download. I don't even know the reason -- now since I have many games and files in my pc and I don't want to do a reformat or re-install my os. Is there any other way to fix this issue? If you need more information (if I'm missing something) please kindly tell so. Hope my prob will get fixed asap.

Basically due to several events i wasnt able to start downloading windows 10 until last night at about 9pm. My computer was having some really random errors like speakers not working so i decided to restart it which prompted it to update. One hour later it hadnt moved from update 1 of 1... so i hard reset it. This made my computer do a c drive repair for another hour so it was about 11 before i could start installing windows 10. it was taking forever to install so i watched some stuff, moved my laptop to my desk and let it go with out realizing it would go to sleep. Yesterday i had to go out so it was 10pm before i turned my computer back on and let it instal again. 2 hours later it hadnt moved so i tried to reset the installation(thinking it going to sleep killed the installation somehow) but stopping it wouldnt work so i reset my computer once again, started windows update again, made it where my laptop wouldnt sleep, and then went to sleep. Woke up, installation errored, tired again, did updates after it was done, and now im here bc im still on windows 8.1 and i cant find a single thing saying install windows 10.

tl:dr windows 10 wont install even though i started the download process/reserved my copy (sorry that was long whoops)

A:Windows 10 errored during installation and wont download now

wait nevermind i found the solution to my problem :/
incase anyone has the same problem the windows website says "All upgrades must have completed and reached the "Welcome" screen by 11:59 PM UTC-10 (Hawaii) on July 29; this is one worldwide point in time." so rip me and the option to play xbox 1 games on my laptop

still would like to know if theres any way i can still get it

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.

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,

MelbMuso73
 

A:Printer drivers compatible with Windows 7

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

I have two unused printer drivers in windows xp, home edition that I can't remove. My software programs wnt to keep degaulting to them and since the printers don't exist, I am unable to print. When I go to control panels, printers, the icons for these two printers are still there, with the word under them "deleting" in light gray text. I have tried removing in safe mode, and that doesn't work either. Suggestons?
