Xp to Vista Upgrade - Printer not working

I recently upgraded a Fujitsu Scenic PC from XP to Vista Business. All is well apart from printing. I cannot install the Vista drivers for my Epson Sylus Photo R240. Reading several blogs it appears the XP to Vista upgrade corrupts the XP drivers or looses the location of the XP drivers but them will not allow the new ones to be installed. The symptoms are that if I try and Add a Printer I get a nessage saying the spooler is not running. If I start the spooler and try and add i get another error. Everything I have tried has failed so far. Any ideas?

Your Sylus Photo R240 is not listed as being compatable on the Epson website compatability page.  Note from Site: " If your product is not listed here, it is not supported by Windows Vista."

Which Windows Vista Edition are you?


If you are upgrading XP to Vista, make sure you backup and have the program "Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor"

Download Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=42B5AC83-C24F-4863-A389-3FFC194924F8&displaylang=en

Be Sure to Backup with a removable media such as CD's, Floppy Disks or USB Flash Drives, External Hard Drivers.

Windows Vista Editions:

Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Business
Windows Vista Ultimate
Windows Vista Starter
Windows Vista Enterprise

These also include 64-bit.

Lastly, if you have XP and if it's Vista Capable, you don't need to use the upgrade advisor, you are allowed to use any, but you must download the drivers after upgrade.

How do I get XP files I haved saved to print on my Vista system? When I download old xp files to vista they're blurry and they print blurry.


It should not matter

Try checking your printer
See if there's still enough ink on it to print.

You can also try to clean the ink cartridges nozzles

Upgrading the OS Windows XP not possible


Upgrading from OS Windows XP:

you can upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista(ultimate, premium, home, business.......),
you have to buy a Windows Vista CD and install a fresh copy or format.

Some Minimum Requirements:

i) Min 2GB RAM or atleast 1GB RAM(if you have>1GB RAM installation of Windows Vista will not continue)

II) External Graphic Card. for some versions of Windows Vista(to run Aero Interface, special feature only   in some versions of Windows Vista)

NOTE:

"Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor" is a software from Microsoft which you can download from internet, this  can help you determine which features and edition of Windows Vista will run on your computer. 

 i.e., when u load this software on windows xp it will suggest which upgrade version of windows vista          will suit your system(based on you system configuration. or hardware components.) and then            you can install the upgraded version of windows xp(mostly windows vista home,.........)


Thanking You

Upgrading the amilo d 7830 from xp to vista


Vista is a horrible operating system. It has many bugs and does not support older systems, cameras, scanners, printers, etc. You are much better off staying with XP. Believe me, I have many users with tons of Vista problems.

Upgrading windows xp to vista


You can upgrade from your current edition of Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 2000 to a corresponding or better edition of Windows Vista by purchasing and installing an upgrade copy of Windows Vista.
While selecting the edition of Windows Vista that's right for you, it's important to clearly understand what hardware your PC will need to ensure the features you want will run reliably.
