    I need whatever is necessary to install my Canon Powershot 40 on my new laptop which has Vista. The Canon worked on XP but a driver is missing apparently (so says Vista) and I don't know where to download one from. I used the Compatibility Wizard which worked until the last message that the driver could not be found. Can anyone help please?

Another solution is to get a compact flash card reader and access your pix that way. No need for the Vista driver then. That's how I do it in my office. My Canon MP380 has a CompactFlash compatible card reader in it, so I just plug the memory card into that.

Hi, you have unfortunatly met the same fate as a lot of unsuspecting people. VISTA does not support most older plugin devices or earlier version soft ware. It is possible to run an old old program designed for WIN 3.1 but none of the later top line products. It is the same for Hardware. My advice is to locate a set of drivers for your new computer system that work with XP and delete VISTA then install XP. Regards mistyman

Need an x1180 driver compatible to windows 7. Download from lexmark website does not work, Get error that download is not a win 32 compatible file. Please help

Use Vista driver in Windows 7. First, check the operating system installed on your Windows 7 if it's running on 32-bit or 64-bit. Go to Start menu -> right-click on Computer -> Properties. Note the system type then close the window.
Uninstall existing Lexmark X1185 drivers from your computer to prevent conflict of softwares. Go to Start menu -> All Programs -> Lexmark 1100 Series -> Uninstall. Reboot the pc when prompted.
When the pc turns on, download the driver using the links below:
Install the file and follow the instructions in the software.

Windows 7 does not recognize the contour rollermouse. Is there a driver for Vista or Windows 7?

From Contour (makers of Rollermouse):

For Windows 7 system -32 bit.

We have a Beta 32 bit driver available, that should work with your mouse version.


Please note the information in the document attached in the driver zip-file.

Windows 7 system - 64 bit:

We are still waiting for the new Contour Windows 64 bit compatible driver.

There is however another option:

There is a third party freeware driver that works in XP, Vista and Win 7 - 32 and 64 bit.

Where can I get a driver for a Xerox WorkCentre XD155df (laser printer/copier) for a 64-bit Windows 7 operating system. The Xerox web site says it does not have the driver and doesn't support the product...

you wont get a win 7 64bt driver!! they havent and will not develop one.. You can use the XP 64bt driver and install it manually in win 7 .. :) yeah a neat trick here is how.. download and unzip xp 64 bt driver files to a folder called FX on your desktop

  • plug printer into pc it will say new hardware found,,
  • wait for the wizard to finish and fail..
  • click start, right click computer, click properties then device manager
  • your printer will be there highlighted in yellow,, right click and select update driver,,
  • click searh a specific location and browse to the FX folder on the desktop.. click next and watch the magic..
  • if it says driver not supported (contine / cancel) click continue and accept the warning message..
thats it... Amazingly win 7 accepts vista and xp drivers in this manner..

32bit vista to 64bit win7

your recovery manager files should be on drive D or other partition. if not then its gone. but the operating system cd that goes with your laptop is still better than the factory default anyway but the thing is, youll need the cd everytime you want to reformat.

if i where you, il go for 32bit win 7 since your computer used to be a 32 bit vista. no worries about making the most out of your computer since win 7 eats less than vista anyway. and go for 32 bit since your laptop is made for 32 bit.

I search for a driver vista or win7 for magigcolor

If the manufacturer of the copier does not make a driver for vista or win 7 64 bit, then you can't use it.

I ran into the same problem a few years back when I upgraded to XP pro 64. I resolved the problem by utilizing Microsoft dual-boot feature. When I need to print or copy, I rebooted to my XP 32 bit system to do the work.

Eventually I purchased new equipment that was compatible with 64 bit systems

How do I transfer files from Windows 98se to Vista on my new computer

If you have a CD/DVD writer, you can write the files to a CD-R. If this is not an option, take out the HDD from he Win 98se machine and install it in the vista machine, if you have room. you might need to disconnect your CD/DVD drive in your vista machine to free up the EIDE ribbon cable.

option 3:
Win 98se can do USB, but not very well. And drivers are hard to come by for usb flash drives. Vista/XP/ win 2000 can handle them without needing a driver disk. Therefore you will need a new OS for the win 98se machine. How about linux, it can handle usb flash drives very well. My advice use Ubuntu linux, you don't need to install it, just get a boot CD. it boots the OS from the CD, does not install or format anything. Use that OS to copy the necessary files to the flash drive. This option requires you to have a cd burner or access to one, so not really saving any time.

You did not give ne a lot of information about your setup. Like do you have a cd/dvd burner, any usb ports, any spare HDD, any external media storage. Do you have any burning software like nero. So pick which option that is viable.

You can also take your computer to best buy and have them back up the data on a CD/DVD disc for a price. Best Buy is not the only shop that does this type of service, check in your area.
