check to see if you see your printer in there anywhere
open word or note pad type a few words and then click print
see if that picks up printer

if nothing go to my computer c drive and then program files see if you see your printer anywhere in there

if not you may need to reinstall before reinstalling
you'll have to right click my computer properties then hardware then device find your printer driver in there there uninstall
some printers need to be plugged in to pc and turned on before you install
HOPE THIS HELPS

If I plug it into the laptop it makes the sound when a USB device is plugged in. It says found new hardware, then it wants to install the hardware with the Wizard all goes well until the wizard tells


It seems the Operating System does not have drivers for your new device or some portion of the drivers are corrupted. If you have the drivers cd for the USB stuff, install the drivers without attaching it to the pc ok. Attach the device when prompted or when completed. Make sure that any previous installations of the software and/or the device should be uninstalled. Good luck

Usb / driver problems


First unplug all the USB devices plugged into your computer except your keyboard. Then reboot. See if your keyboard gives you any problem. Then go into the device manager of control panel and check the USB section. See if there are any red "X" or yellow "!" showing up there which would indicate a USB bus problem. If there is a problem with the USB, delete them all and let windows re-install them. But this may not solve the problem if it is driver corruption. In this case, you should just re-install windows XP over itself.

If there are no problems with the USB drivers, plug the devices back in ONE AT A TIME. I suspect that one of them will cause the problem. If so, it either needs a new driver or it's kaput.

Your CD Drive problem may be a co-incidence....

Computer just quit reconizing my Canon Pixma IP 6600 Printer. Have tried new cable, reloading drivers, different USB Ports...Nothing seems to work


First impression is try to do an install on another computer.
uninstall unit from computer, delete completely all drivers and its printer software from computer. if VISTA OS make sure a VISTA driver is loaded for that unit.

if a fairly new unit, return too store, possible short.

Problem installing canon mp610 on my hp dv6113tx laptop running windows xp


if it worked on your desktop, it means that the printer is not faulty. could be issues on your laptop. have you tried plugging it into a different USB port on your laptop? try all the ports, one of them should work. if not, then there may be something wrong with the way you are installing the printer driver to your laptop. double check if you're doing everything correctly by following on-screen instructions carefully
