When you loaded the drivers there may have been an option to select parallel port or USB if so you may have selected the wrong one. If so reload drivers and watch out for this option. Hope this helps

How do I set up my Ups? When I try to test it, it turns everything off. And when the power goes out, it shuts off everything.


You must install the software that came with your UPS on the computer that will be connected to the UPS, either via serial or USB. Within the software you can configure when to shut the computer down in case of a power failure.

The whole problem seemed to be tied up with McAfee antivirus. It seems that this program runs its own firewall settings that sometimes interfere with the computer's communication. Once this program was removed and another antivirus installed, but problem was resolved.

Printer set-up


Go to this link and then to the support section. You then need to find the software for your specific model of printer. this is the same or maybe updated software that came with your printer.
Before you run this software go into add remove programs on your computer (this is done through the control panel) and make sure that all software that has anything to do with Lexmark is um-installed. run the program from the website and your problem should be solved. As a Little side note, if the printer connects to your computer with a USB cable then make sure the printer is physically disconnected from the computer before running the program from the web site.
Hope this helps

Installation for canon pixma ip 1500


Hey you again, you rated me yesterday Inappropriate. Actually, fixya expert afraid to give some solution because you will rated us Inappropriate even the problem is came from you where you was not clearly stated your problem.

Ok, but anyway I am still to help you, Is it the problem goes to the manual installation you need or the driver instead?

Printers used to be the bugbear of computer users. They were difficult to set up and ornery in operation. That's no longer the case and it's likely you'll have no problems getting your printer up and running. This is particularly the case if your printer comes packaged with your computer system or if you stick to well-known brands such as Hewlett-Packard, Epson, Lexmark and Canon.
Connecting a printer involves four steps:
  1. Unpacking your printer, removing any packaging material and installing the ink or toner cartridge. Refer to your printer's instructions to guide you.
  2. Connecting the printer cable to the printer and to the back of your computer.
  3. Connecting the printer's power cord to a power outlet.
  4. Installing the printer driver and any additional software. The printer driver is a piece of software that tells your computer how to interact with your printer.
If your printer comes as part of your system, you may find that its driver is already installed. In that case, all you'll need to do is unpack it, connect the printer cable and power cord and switch on your computer.
geekgirl.tip: Get a cable One word of warning: Make sure you purchase a printer cable! Often, this is not included in your computer system, despite it being an essential item. You'll need the correct type of cable for your printer: If it's a USB-enabled printer, you need a USB cable (note, the new USB 2 cables work with older USB 1 printers, too; so if in doubt, get a USB 2 cable); if it's a parallel printer, you'll need a parallel cable.
Make sure you get a cable long enough to reach easily from your printer to your computer. However, you should avoid cables longer than 10', because long cables can cause problems with communication between printer and computer. Try to position your printer so a 6' (or shorter) cable can make the connection.
Follow the wizard If your printer's software has not been pre-installed, read any installation instructions that accompany your printer and follow those instructions. If no instructions are provided, follow this procedure:
(Note: This procedure applies to printers which use a parallel connection. If your printer uses a USB connection, you should connect it while Windows is running and it will be recognised.)
  1. Make sure you have your original Windows CD-ROM handy. You may need it.
  2. Switch the computer off.
  3. Connect the parallel printer cable to your computer.
  4. Connect the printer's power cord to a power outlet.
  5. Switch on the printer and the computer.
  6. In most cases, Windows will detect that you've attached a new hardware device and it will launch the Add Hardware Wizard and attempt to search for the appropriate software. If the wizard doesn't launch and Windows appears to ignore your printer, you can launch the Add Printer wizard yourself by clicking the Start button, selecting Control Panel, clicking Printers And Other Hardware, and then clicking Add Printer.
  7. If the printer is directly connected to your computer, select the Local Printer Attached To This Computer option. If you will be connecting to the printer via a network connection, select the Network Printer option, then click Next.
  8. The wizard will first try to search for any Plug and Play devices (these are components that should, by rights, automatically notify Windows when they're first connected). If the wizard discovers your printer, it will display further instructions to complete the installation. You may need to restart your system to finish.
