    Drivers, Software, lost C.D....come this way!

     




    If you have lost you cd or don't know how to install your printer then all you
    need to do is download the drivers and software from the manufactures website
    that suits your operating system and printer.



    Drivers and software download areas for brands listed below, just click to gain
    access and then locate driver for your needs.



    Brother Epson Sharp
    Canon Lexmark
    OKI Dell HP Kyocera Samsung Konica/Minolta
    Xerox Panasonic



    PLEASE NOTE



    When installing drivers/software it is generally a good practice to -








    ·                                
    Delete
    old/previous installs



    Leave printers USB cable
    disconnected from computer until newly installed software requests it to be
    connected.

I am getting an error message saying Incorrect port detected. The printer is designed to work with USB cables only. The current software setting is not set to USB port. In my printer properties dialog


Do you hear the connect/disconnect sounds when you plug the USB cable into your computer? If you do not, then the system is not recognizing the printer USB port.

Here is what I would do:
1. In the Devices and Printers section of the control panel, right-click on the printer icon, and select printer properties, then select the Ports Tab. Delete any ports connections for the printer. There could be several for the same printer.
2. Uninstall all Lexmark drivers.
3. Make sure that the printer does not show up in the Devices and printers under control panel. If the printer still shows up, remove the device by right-clicking on the icon, and select Remove device.
4. Reboot the computer.
5. Re-install the printer software. The software should detect the printer on the USB port.

Good luck.

Error 0x0000002when trying to install hp photosmartC5100[printer C5180] all in one printer to a toshiba laptop with vista


Seems like its a common problem.
Are you using a usb cable direct connection or a serial to usb

based in microsoft's forum
http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=2298899&SiteID=17

Try this:

1. Make sure the only printer connected is your hp printer that you are having problems

2. From your control panel go to system then go to device manager

3. Under universal serial bus controllers, look for usb printer or any usb printing device you see there and uninstall it.

4. Disconnect your usb cable from the printer and your computer

5. Uninstall the driver from the add/remove programs or hp's driver software uninstaller

6. Restart your computer

7. Download the latest driver from hp's website or use the cd installer

8. Plug in the usb cable from both ends and restart again the computer
