Canon LBP printer driver won't work on my Dell Laptop


1) Make SURE the Canon printer is NOT attached to the Inspiron when installing the software!

Why?

When a device is installed (In this case the device is a printer), Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find suitable matching drivers.

If THE drivers are not already there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic, one-size-fits-all, drivers.
This = NO

A driver conflict will result when THE drivers are installed afterwards;

Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

Drivers and software is installed FIRST, then the printer is plugged into the computer, and turned on.

If you have just downloaded the drivers, I suggest you go back, and download the Software AND the drivers /package.
You need the software for the user interface.

When you see the file name DOUBLE-click on it.

Then follow the easy instructions of the Installation Wizard.
(Just click on Next, Next, and Finish, at the bottom of the three small windows)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

(Don't forget to Restart the computer after the drivers and software is installed. Then when Windows has loaded again connect the printer to the computer with the USB cable, and turn the printer on.

After a couple of seconds you should see a message out of the system task bar, at the bottom of the monitor screen;

"Found new hardware", and then after perhaps another one;

"Found Canon LBP XXXX" )

I am trying to install a printer to in my Dell Inspiron laptop 1545. I have the printer connected to the laptop through the ethernet port. But I can not get it to pull up the printer at all. Is the...


Hi lesstravelro...
No, the printer does not connect to the ethernet port.

Before you hook your printer to your laptop besure to run any softwear that came with the printer.
I would also recommend that you go to the Manufacturer's website for updated drivers for your printer.
Your printer will have a printer port or usb port on the side/back of the printer to plug the printer cable into the printer.
You will plug the other end of the printer cable into a usb port on your laptop.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

I want to connect my Dell inspiron 1525 laptop (basic vista)to HP 7550 printer. What type of usb cord do I need, and are drivers available online?


Assuming this is a Photosmart 7550 printer and not the 7550 Plotter, this is what you will need for connectivity. To connect printer to PC, you will need a standard USB A/B cable... one side is a male A connector and the other one a male B connector. As far as the drivers are concerned, you will not need to download any. Vista already has a compatible driver for your HP Photosmart 7550. HP recommends selecting the drivers for the Deskjet 5550 when installing your Photosmart 7550.

Dell Inspiron 1525 not turning on


hi. I suspect that you have either a dead battery or just need a reset. unplug the power cord and then remove the battery. wait two minutes and reinstall the battery.
this will reset everything. now try turning it on. if it won't come on plug in the power cord and charge the battery for 30 minutes before attempting to power up.

Cannot connect a hp psc 2410 printer to dell inspiron 1000 laptop


Try a powered USB hub, this will boost the power in the USB curcuit.
Also ensure that in Device Manager, USB Root HUB, Power Management tab, that the option to let windows turn off the device is unchecked.

Bjc2100 install disk won't work on my laptop. I use Windows Vista system.


The BJC2100 install disk came out when Windows 98 was in its heyday. It will not work in Windows Vista. The Windows Vista OS already has a driver imbedded that will work with your BJC-2100. It "should" recognize the printer and automatically install the driver. If it doesn't, try the "Add Printer" feature, select Canon as the manufacturer, and look for the BJC-2100 Series driver.

Blue screen


Okay... we need some more information..
XP, Vista? What Printer? How old? Is software already installed for printer? USB printer?

The blue screen. Recreate the problem.. there should be something along the lines of a description across the top of the screen that says some technical information.

If you want.. just type the stop code.. for example Stop 0x000000.. (just an example) If you ANYthing that has a files name.. like blahblah.drv or blah blah.dll... type everything in on that line here.

The problem is most likely..
A bad driver in windows
A faulty printer
A faulty USB cable
A broken usb connector on your laptop that has a short.

but the most likely is a faulty driver.
Try downloading the latest driver from the manufacturer's website.
Dont' call support.. they'll drive you nuts.... Hp's site is pretty easy to navigate.
Dells site is not bad either..
lexmark, epson, canon... not bad.. but you need to be sure of where you're clicking.

Best wishes... waiting for your response. www.techvisitor.com

Windows does not recognize usb device


Probably broke a solder point. Need to take in for repair, or find a friend who is an electrician.

Note: Needs to use low heat solder.

Laptop wont recognize USB connection to turn printer on


Yes, you need a separate power cord, as this printer needs more power than a USB cable can provide. It should have come with this power cord, but if it didn't you will have to contact the store you purchased it from, or Canon directly, for the cable. If it only has 2 prongs, it's not using a standard PC power cable, so you need the specific one made for your printer.
