Can't reinstall software from original CD. message from install program says drivers are missing. Running XP with Service Pack 3 and installed driver check software says it's all there ok, but HP...


I stopped using a "driver check software " because I have had more problems like that than it was worth. I just go to the web site for the software manufacture for updates. Also, most software now has the feature that allows you search for current updates.

1. Uninstall the "driver check software".
2. Reboot
3. Run the setup from the CD.

If the CD reinstalls then your problem is the "driver check software".

You also might run Windows update.

Dear User,

You can always install any missing driver through Internet. There are many ways to do so.
  1. You can go to Device Manufacturer's website and get the latest driver for you OS version as listed there.
  2. You can also use Window automatic update feature and select the option for looking over the net, when prompted during the driver installation process in windows.
  3. Or you can go to the shop, from where you purchased the device, and he'll get you the required one.
Thanks.

Canon PIXMA MP190 'not responding'


There are possible causes of this not responding status message you get. you will try out these option i have listed here and see which one resolves the problem. after each one, try to print from a file and from the web.
1. Configure driver to correct printer port
On the 'Ports' tab of 'Printer Properties' window, select the correct port for the printer driver.
From the Windows desktop, open the printer's properties window.
Click the Ports tab.
Below 'Print to the following port(s)' section, select the port to which your printer is connected.
Click 'Apply' to accept the changes.

Click General tab and then click 'Print Test Page' to confirm the changes corrected the issue.
2. Checking USB Connections
You should disconnect and reconnect the USB cable at both ends to ensure there is a secure connection on the device side as well as the computer side. It may also be necessary to try a different USB port on the computer. Additionally, you may need to disconnect other USB devices, temporarily, in order to determine if a conflict exists.
Disconnect one end of the cable and then reseat it ensuring the cable is firmly seated into the USB port. If the USB cable is plugged into a hub instead of directly into the computer, try connecting the USB cable directly into the computer.
Repeat step one to reseat the cable on the other end.
3. If there is still no communication, then it may be necessary to try a different USB cable or a different port on the computer.
when you are through, restart the system.
4. Uninstall and Reinstall the Driver
If the MP Navigator or the MP drivers are no longer required, or if they are not installed correctly, uninstall them.
Caution: Uninstalling means deleting software, such as MP drivers, from the computer. Once the software has been deleted the unit cannot be used through the computer until the software has been reinstalled.
Note: Login as a user with Administrator privileges to uninstall . Turn off any programs running in the background, such as antivirus programs and firewalls before begining.

Login as a user with Administrator privileges to install on WindowsXP/Vista/2000.
Close any antivirus software that may be running prior to installing the drivers.
