HP Printer tool box not compatible?

Q: HP Printer tool box not compatible?

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 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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,
My computer started crashing on load and during safemode boot up after running ComboFix to remove a rootkit... At the time I wasn't able to run TDSSKiller for an unknown reason and after ComboFix looked like it was successful, the computer ended up not starting. I've run everything under the sun to try and fix this problem then I heard of Farbar's Recovery Scan Tool... Loaded it on a flash drive, whipped it over to the laptop, and low and behold....

This version of C:\FRST64.exe is not compatible with the version of WIndows you're running. Check your computer's system information to se whether you need a ..................

Anyway, it is a 64bit operating system that is installed and I had tried to 32bit program and neither worked... I attempted to download it again without success....

Any help would be great.

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 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
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

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

Well, I've searched this site and to the end of the web. The problem is my HP photosmart C-5180 printer won't recognize some new "compatible" cartridges (HP 02).

AFTER I bought them, THEN the seller tells me that "after they researched it, other customers are reporting problems w/ compatible carts & C-5100 / 6100 series printers". Other retailers have now also told me the same.

I'm looking for a workaround. My problem is that the printer won't recognize the new cart, NOT that it says it's empty. Error message: "cartridge(s) is missing or damaged." Obviously, HP has rigged this printer & the HP 02 cart so generic carts won't work.:dead:

I went through all the steps that the inkseller suggested to "trick" the printer into recognizing the compatible carts. HA! But, just like everything else, there must be a hack for this.

Suggestions or links would be appreciated.
 

A:Using compatible cartridges in HP C-5180 printer

tough break. The only solution I can offer is to buy an ink refill kit with the original HP carts. Obviously they are using ID chips in their ink carts to prevent 3rd party ink carts from being used. Very sneaky and also a violation of some trade laws.

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.

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!

We recently purchased a laptop, Gateway MX8738, that uses the Vista OS and a wireless printer that is Vista compatible (Lexmark x4550). Our internet signal is received via a combination modem/wireless router (Verizon, Westall Model 327).
We were successful in loading the printer wirelessly to our laptop and able to print documents. But found, when attempting to access our internet service (that had been operational), we were unable to do so though signal was strong. Upon going to Network and Sharing we learned the printer was blocking the internet signal to the laptop. Over the course of 2 days, we spent easily 8 hrs each with both Lexmark and Verizon with neither able to help, each pointing fingers at the other.
This is our last resort. We temporairly disconnected the Windows firewall on the laptop and found this did not solve our problem. We also have a Trend Micro Anti Virus loaded on the laptop, but did nothing with that. Any one out there have any suggestions? Your assistance is greatly appreciated by this computer novice.

Hi,
Install windows 10 and confirm activation as suggested in forums. Downloaded Windows Media Creation Tool to create fresh reinstall. Ran it to create 64 bit ISO. Now using the ISO to reinstall windows 10. At 30% restore, it failed. I tried various recovery. Even did chkdsk on drive c with /r and also with /f. Same problem again - failure at about 30% restore.

Reading in forums, I discover Refresh Windows Tool(exe). Downloaded and ran it (tool) to download Windows 10.
What I dislike. No Pause or ability to use a download manager. When this download of about 3gb is done, where is it saved? How to use? Yea, automatic for I still have prior install files (programs, data folders,etc) which means nothing was done. Did restart hoping for a fresh reinstall - no changes. Thus I am posting in this forum with paragraph 1 (media tool) and Refresh tool (paragraph 2).

Went into BIOS startup and told it to use DVD (boot order priority), but instead window normal login was done and given. Thus, use window recovery within to execute the ISO.

Hello IrishO ,Let's disable the main file manually so you can run some tools. What I want you to look for is in Application Data (If using XP). There will be a folder, with a file in it of the same "name". This will appear random, but it has a pattern. Look for letters and numbers in this order: lower case, upper case, lower case, upper case, lower case, then 5 random numbers. For example:Folder -----> pEeHl02508\pEeHl02508.exe <-----file insideDelete the folder. Now, if you still have no access to the internet, download the following tool to a flash drive from a different computer, then put it on the infected one and run it.This tool is not a toy. If used the wrong way you could trash your computer. Please use only under direction of a Helper. If you decide to do so anyway, please do not blame me or ComboFix.* Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. IF YOU USE AVG IT MUST BE UNINSTALLED OR THIS WILL NOT RUN.1. Download this file - combofix.exe http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe 2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.3. When finished, it will produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply please.Note:Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running.

You may need to reinstall the printer. Remove the printer driver from Control Panel\Programs and Features, then add the printer from Devices and Printers.

Please note that if the printer driver is not in the list in Devices and Printers, I suspect that the printer is currently not compatible with Windows 8. In this case I suggest you contact the printer manfuacturer for more information.

I've decided to try my hand at building my own PC. I intend it to be a medium - high end gaming computer. I've got everything figured out (at least I hope) I'm just wanting a second opinion about my choice of motherboard and CPU. I'm pretty sure they are compatible, at least in theory, I was just wondering if anyone had any first hand experience with them, or any advice for me. Hey, if you feel like it, recommend something bigger and better. I have a pretty good budget for this (within reason of course, nothing too outrageous).

CPU : AMD Phenom X4 9950 Quad Core Processor 2.60GHz, 4MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Agena, Retail, Socket AM2+, with Fan (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4016668&CatId=3496)

Motherboard : FX nForce 750a SLI Motherboard - NVIDIA 750a SLI, Socket AM2/AM2+, ATX, Audio, Video, HDMI, DVI, PCI Express 2.0, Gigabit LAN. S/PDIF, USB 2.0, eSATA, RAID (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3930721&CatId=13)

One big question I have, however, is whether a GeForce 8800GT graphics card with its super long design would fit correctly or at all in that motherboard. The 2nd PCI-E slot has to be the first one used, so I couldn't put it in the top slot. I think it would fit, but not quite sure.

Anyways, thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to have a read through this, and an extra thanks to anyone with any advice or comments.
 

A:Compatible, or not compatible, that is the question.

why can u not use the first slot? the only problem should be with the case. put the mem. in before u put the video card in.

Hi,

My computer is working fine - but I recently purchased a new Samsung ML2570 laser printer that just died when the starter cartridge ran out of toner (or actually when the printer counter hit its predetermined set no. - probably 1000). At least I think that's what happened. The starter cartridges come without fuses. Replacement cartridges or toner refill kits come with fuses that are supposed to reset the counters, so when I refilled the starter cartridge and inserted the fuse that came with the kit, the printer still didn't work. I tried again with two more fuses, with no luck. I don't have a printer jam and all the doors are well-latched before I turn it on. Does anyone have any idea what I should do next to get my printer working again? My email is [email protected]

Regards, and thanks for any help,

Marie

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.

I'm having difficulty getting the printer which is attached to a Win XP Pro system to be available for use by a Win ME system on the same network.

The printer is a HP Deskjet 697C. It is installed and working on the Win XP Pro system.
Both systems can see each other on the network and transfer files back and forth with no difficulty.
The printer on the XP system is marked for Sharing and File and Print Sharing is enabled.
The XP Firewall is turned off, as we use Zone Alarm Security Suite.

When I use Add Printer on the WinME machine, and try to browse for a network printer, I can expand the network to see the computer name of the XP machine, but the shared printer doesn't show up as a choice.

What are we doing wrong?
 

A:Solved: Can't Add HP 697C Printer connected to WinXP Pro into WinME printer choices

What is the share name for the printer? Win ME uses NetBIOS for local shares, and has a limit of 12 characters to a share name.

I just downloaded and installed Windows Virtual PC XP Mode to be able to run old software (Micrografx Designer) that worked on 32-bit XP.

The installation went fine, also installing Designer in the virtual machine. However, the printer is not found.


When restarting XP with the printer attached to a different port it was still not found. 
What to do?
Thank you.
(It's a standalone PC, the printer does not connect via network)
