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.

Does a canon BJC2100 need drivers


The fact is every printer, every hard ware requires a driver. Sometimes one is lucky they already in the drivers database of the operating system and so they get automatically installed. But if they are not one must download or get the CD and install them. Go to http://software.canon-europe.com/ select your printer, operating system i.e. xp or vista etc and download then install your driver.

Good luck & God bless!

Have a series 2300 lexmark disk but cant install on my new laptop which is windows vista.


There may be some companion files you had in previous Windows versions that are no longer present in Vista.
Go to the Lexmark US site and look for 'Support' and check if they have provided new files for Vista-equipped systems.

Can I use my Kodak 5300, installed as my network printer on a desktop running Windows XP with my new laptop running Vista? If so, do I run the install disk (with Vista drivers) on the laptop or what?


you should be able to as long as there are Vista drivers available.

make sure you first share your printer from the desktop it is attached to. then on the Visa laptop try to Add Printer choosing network printer (as opposed to local printer) and browse for the shared printer. Vista should tell you it has to install software so allow it to. Have the disk ready (does it have Vista drivers on it do you know?).

Word of caution: Vista's a little quirky with networked printers so you may have to delete the printer on the laptop and add it back if it doesn't work the first time (I had to do that even though all machines involved were Vista :/ ).

Cheers.

HP6210 all in one set-up won't work on Vista System Laptop


Did you get an error when installing,or did it install. What happened when you plunged in the printer
when the software told you to plug it in, did windows say found new hardware and you let it install a windows driver or did you shut down the window so it would install the hp driver.
Go to start,control panel,programs, look and see if the hp software is listed,if not it did not install,
try it again.
With the hp printer plugged into your laptop, go to devise mgr and look under portable device,it should
show your printer model#, rt click on the model # and then on driver, does it say hp or windows,if it says
windows then the hp driver did not get installed, put in the disk, then click on update driver and pick browse computer, and point it to the disk.

HP has a vista driver for your printer, so you need to check the set up info that came with it to see
if the vista driver in on the disk. You can always just download the driver software from HP,pick the vista
one and install it. But make sure that the software is removed from the program list if it was in there before you install again. Hope it works out, its very hard to cover everything so if any more Q's
just post back.
