Important Information about setting up your printer

Hello Everyone I’m Nathan. Remember before buying a printer

First and foremost, check if that printer is compatible with the Operating system that you have. A lot of people look for cheaper printers which is a good idea but, the driver's aren't compatible with the Operating system for example.

You have windows 7 and you just bought a very nice printer and on the label box says, Only for windows Me, XP , and Vista.

OK... Fine then you go ahead and look for the driver's online at the manufacture's official site. And guess what... They don't make the driver for windows 7 that means you won't be able to use the printer and might have to sell it and buy a new one according to the compatibility.

Remember to review your computer expecifications and the printer's compatibility believe it or not a lot of people run into this problem especially if it’s a used printer.

hp 3745 printer windows 7 compatible

Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_52.jpg
