If you are running Windows XP or Vista (not clarified in your post)? Then just start your computer, wait five minutes and connect the printer, without any disk in the optical drives. If prompted by Windows hardware configuration wizard to insert the CD/DVD then do so and only then. Continue with the wizard and all should be fine.

All software loaded . but cant detect printer


Hi, First check the process of installation that you have done properly. Plugged your printer first but do not turn it on. Install the software disk. This installation will ask to plug the printer then turn the printer on, it will detect your printer automatically. If all the process are OK then make sure the printer is working and it is power on. Check the USB cable of the printer or replace the cable.

Keeps saying "scanner failure" What do I do?


Scanners are a real legacy issue within windows - they have been there forever and yet the software controlling them hasn't been improved on - TWAIN it is the name of the Toolkit which communicates with your scanner and the proprietary software sits on top of that. TWAIN stands for "Toolkit Without An Interesting Name" - I think says it all. It hasn't been improved on much through the various releases of Windows. But to help you more we would need a lot more information.

- Platform Windows 7 .... Mac ...
- Scanner name and manufacturer
- Type of connection to the scanner ( USB ¦ WIRELESS )
- Whether you have had the scanner working in the past on this machine.
- Does the scanner work on another machine - Do you have another machine on which to try the scanner.
- Do you have the original disks for the scanner. And the original Windows Disk - so that you can load up the TWAIN software.
- How did you install the software for the scanner
- Have you come across this TWAIN driver ( perhaps you haven't installed that - because the Manufacturer's software doesn't include the TWAIN driver ( you have to load that from your Windows disk )

If you haven't loaded the TWAIN software - then perhaps - you should de-install the Manufacturers software and then install the TWAIN driver from the disk ( although - it may already be resident in the bowls of the Windows environment on the machine ) and then finally re-install the Manufacturer's software ...

So more questions than answers - but I hope that helps ....

Cant get my printer to work ..asked for disk that dident come


From the manufacturer's web-site:

http://support.lexmark.com

enter 'X1270' and click "search" to find the device-drivers for your printer & for your Operating System.
Download the software, and install it, and then Windows will recognize your printer.

Photosmart c309 Tried loading drivers and


Since you have problem loading driver using the setup disc that came with the printer, there's a chance here that some part of the installation disc are corrupted so it will be better if you use the printer software from HP web site, download it from this link.

If memory serves me correct, your printer came/comes with two/three disc's. Each for diff prods.
Do you have the setup disc's. if so, load disc/menu/extra facilities to load.

If not, got to www.hp.com Find were to enter you printer details, you will be able to download updates, be patient, con tak a little time, a lot of bytes.

This printer has always worked - today there is no light and my computer says the printer is offline. we've tried 3 diff plugs, all connections are good..


Hi,
Your printer is not communicating with the Operating System.
Follow the following steps:-

1.First uninstall the printer. ( Make sure you have the printer driver disk )
2.Make sure the printer is OFF and disconnect the power lead to your desktop or laptop.
3.Leave the computer OFF for 2 to 3 minutes. I actually mean turn it off and disconnect your power cord to the computer. That will clear everything.
4.Plug in and on your computer and let it boot up. When its fully booted, click START / SETTINGS / PRINTERS and FAXes and click ADD A PRINTER.
5.Follow the instructions and have the appropriate driver disk or files on your computer to complete the installation.

Remember, most installations require the printer NOT be powered up or connected while you load the drivers. That is normally the last step and the driver loading will prompt you to turn on the power and make the connections.

Then you probably will have to reboot and you are done.


Thanks!

XP says printer is seen as new hardware and won't go away


When you do a restore on those, yes, you load XP, then you have to run the drivers disk.
The trick is, after you restore windows, you have to install the chipset driver first.
Reboot
Then do sound, NIC (NIC has to be done manually), and video (don't worry about the USB drivers, they get taken care of in the windows updates)
Reboot
After all of that is in, do your windows updates (of course reboot again)
Then do windows update manually (START>Update Windows, Custom) and make sure to include hardware updates.
Once all of that is in, then attach the printer (don't turn it on) install the printer software, and turn the printer on when it tells you to.

Not doing the restore in this order will result in the errors you are getting.

The chipset drivers first is the key to the whole project.
(I've probably done 100+ of these).

I don't know if you can go back in now to do these steps, you might be better off, starting all over.

Try that, and let us know.
