Wrong, Windows XP will load plug and play drivers for new found devices, but they may not work properly or not at all.

Windows keeps finding new hardware nd trying to install it. I put in the disk, but xp won't use the files


Run the driver from the disk by clicking on the execution file ..or running the auto-installation ..and only attach the printer when it asks or after the driver is installed ..
Or ...plug the printer...and let the wizard start ..select not to look for the driver on the net ..but to select it from a location ...click the case that will alow to browse for a location ..and point the search to the disk drive ..and click next ..this way you will force windows to install the driver for it ..
If on the disk are several drivers for more than one operation system ..you will have to select when browsing the driver folder and specify the xp one ..

When downloading a printer driver from HP you will need to ensure that you are selecting the correct OS (eg. Windows 7) and the appropriate version (eg. 64 or 32 bit operating system). These drivers are different and using one on the other will not work.
Windows XP drivers also will not work properly in a Windows 7 environment and the majority of Windows XP drivers are 32-Bit.

Requesting scan - scan request failed


I've had the same problem occasionally when re-installing. There are a couple of ways to solve this.

1- Right click properties on "my computer" (or open "system" in control panel). Bring up the Hardware tab. Click on "device manager" button, then scroll down to see if there are any devices with a yellow exclamation point. if one is "scan" then the windows did not yet install it. (This can happen if windows installed the print drivers automatically before you actually installed your printer driver. Remember that even if the printer is turned off, it will still be recognized by Windows unless you disconnect the usb cord). Solution: delete the highlighted button. Then restart your computer. If you have already run the dell installation disks, windows should recognize and install the software. Be sure to have your disk inserted in the cd drive when you restart. Otherwise:

2- use your dell installtion disks to uninstall, then re-install. Hope it helps. :)

I got a new computer and I need to install my


You can download the drivers from Dell's support pages for some OS's (I see a WinXP, Vista 32-bit and Win2K.) If your new computer came with Win7, you may not have much luck unless you use a work-around. Dell's site indicates that the Vista driver doesn't work in Win7. You can try the compatability mode to install the driver (download, extract the files to a new folder, find the .exe file and right click on it. Choose Properties and then the Compatability tab. Check the box for Run as and choose the correct OS version. Then right click again and choose Run as administrator.) Alternatively, Win7 Pro and Ultimate can run a virtual XP computer (on some computers). It takes two downloads and installation of the programs from Microsoft. Then install the printer using the XP driver from Dell.
The drivers are available here: (long URL)

I hope this helps.

My computer won't recognize (wirelessly) to my HP Deskjet


I'm sure you've tried installing the software with the printer detached...but if you haven't, that's the first thing. Another thing that's really common is that Vista may want to install its own drivers and they may not be compatible. Go into device manager (start-menu, right click on "computer", go to properties). Click on the hardware tab and let's get into device manager from there. Look for a yellow symbol with a ! in it. You can update drivers from there, navigating to the disk that you installed from...you'll likely see something that says "drivers" and either Vista or XP (If there's no Vista, try XP drivers anyway. Hope that works...

I can't get my computer usb to recognize my Canon Pixma MX300 printer


I would suggest going to the support section at www.canonusa.com and download the latest software from their website. Make sure the cable is connected securely on both ends, and restart the computer.

Can't install old printer on newer computer


The appropriate printer drivers are bundled with XP. With the printer connected to the computer and powered on, the system should automatically recognize the printer and install the correct drivers if it is connected via USB. If it is connected to the parallel port, go to Control Panel -> Printers, select Add New Printer and follow the on-screen prompts.
