Question about Epson Stylus Color 850 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Can I get a driver for this printer to operate with Windows Vista?

Windows Vista Home Premium does not recognise the installation DVD. I searched the internet and phoned Epson who confirmed Vista does not accept this printer's driver. Has a 'geek' designed one?

    Thanks very much. I bought a USB to IEEE 1284 cable, plugged in as you recommended and it appears that Windows Vista Home Premium instantly recognised my printer ! Magic ! Is that because Windows Vista has its own list of printer drivers ?

    Probably so ...it stands to reason that if Vista installed the driver without any installation discs, then that would be the case.

    Regardless - glad I could help :)

I cant find a ethernet driver for windows 7 home premium for my acer aspire t120c after updating from windows xp home 32 bit


Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download andinstall the drivers.If you don't see windows 7 drivers, maybe the vista drivers will work. Give it a try.

It could be possible that the drivers those you have installed for your Printer is not for Windows Vista.
Find the link below to download the drivers for Windows Vista.

I hope this should resolve the issue once you re-install the drivers, also please be carefully to select the Windows Vista as operating system while installing the drivers.

Blu-ray drivers for windows 7


Hi,

Windows 7 by default has blue-ray support so there is no use of the drivers. If you are playing a movie, then You need to install the codec’s for Blu-Ray. Your Blu-ray drive should have came with media containing the codec’s. You can also use your favorite search engine and search for free Blu-ray codec’s.
You can install Power DVD 9 which install a codec for Blu-ray drive.

Hope this helps you, please check out.

New year Regards.

That is a problem I have run into myself. If there are no drivers available from the Printer manufacturer then you are stuck. Try looking at your printer manufacturer website for updated software, not drivers. Sometimes the solution is is in the Factory software.

Go here to and click on your specific model, then click on 'Software & Driver downloads', then your Operating System, and you should now be able to download the correct driver package for your printer. I hope that helps. Bundled software with printers and other devices is often out-of-date.
