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 ?

Follow these steps to set up your Epson product and install the built-in Windows Vista drivers:

  1. Set up your computer.


  2. Connect your Epson product to your computer.


  3. Follow the on-screen instructions that Windows Vista displays to guide you through product driver installation.

    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 :)

Lexmark 2735 printer (set as default printer) does not respond on my windows 7 p.c.


Hi,

I assume you meant a Lexmark Z735 printer.

This is an older printer, but the printer may work with Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate. You can try to install the driver for Windows Vista, BUT MAKE SURE you install the correct driver for your system. Check to see if you have a 32 bit or 64 bit system and install the appropriate driver. Check this link first:

www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Search.aspx?s=Lexmark%20Z735&type=Hardware

You should uninstall the current driver first.

Then see these links:

Cannot correctly run this installer on this operating system. Usi an installer compatible with your operating system


You need to install the drivers for this printer. You need to use the correct installer for your Windows operating system or Version of Windows. Check the Canon website and download and install the driver for your operating system.

If you are running Windows XP then install the Windows XP drivers for this device on your computer.
If you are running Windows 7 Home Premium, then install the Windows 7 Home Premium drivers for this device, etc... Also be sure to get the right Bit, that being either 32Bit or 64Bit.

Take care!

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.

Instal only one printer driver on the PC it is physically connected to. Preferably the Windows 7 PC (Latest OS). Unshare the printer, remove drivers from other PC's., then reboot al PC,s and re-share the printer. The PC's sharing should allow the Windows 7 PC to use it's driver, although they may request a disc for basic information about the printer.

Check to make sure you are using a 64bit driver. (Vista is very touchy abou this) If there isn't a 64 bit driver on the disk then you may have to download it from Lexmark's website.

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.
