I was just wondering if the problem with installing the driver has to do with the fact that I have Windows Vista on my new computer? On my old comp I had Windows XP and it installed no problem. I didn't see anywhere in the information that came with my camera whether or not it supports Windows Vista or not. Can you please let me know if this could possibly be the problem? Thanks so much!

Re: Unable to install driver on my new computer
The best thing to do would be to contact the manufacturer of said camera and ask if they have a "Driver" thats written for Vista.
Otherwise the only shot ya got is to install the software in "Compatibility Mode for XP"
Vista and drivers is a nightmare for us engineers I have many, many customers that curse the day the switched to Vista.. and frequently they have ended up sourcing all NEW gear so it would work with Vista, hey maybe that all part of the Ahem "Plan"? Lol..

TRY DISABLING YOUR VIRUS PROTECTION FIRST...THEN INSERT YOUR DISK, GO TO SOFTWARE PROGRAMS, CLICK ON INSTALL NEW SOFTWARE...OR YOU CAN TRY LEAVING YOUR DISK IN AND RESTART YOUR COMPUTER, TO SEE IF IT WILL DETECT YOUR SOFTWARE...MORE THAN LIKELY YOU'LL HAVE TO DISABLE YOUR VIRUS PROTECTION FIRST, UNTILL YOUR ABLE TO INSTALL THE SOFTWARE.
DO NOT HAVE YOUR GAME HOOKED UP, UNTILL SOFTWARE IS INSTALLED.
REBOOT YOUR COMPUTER, WITH GAME HOOKED UP, SO THE COMPUTER CAN DETECT YOUR HARDWARE.
Your new hard drive doesn't have anything to do with the internet...In fact, if you are using wireless connectivity, you must pair with your wireless router. The other solution will be to install missing drivers and, you can review them by right clicking on My Computer or Computer then, manage. There you would have to click on Devices located on your left panel and then you will have yellow triangles or yellow marks / ! \ meaning, that you have to reinstall them in order to make it work. Recommendation: Use another computer, go to HP.com then support, when there look for your model number and select your operating system then download each drivers that are missing from your computer by using and external flash drive, then, take the flash drive to your laptop and install drivers.
Please try this. Run the install disk/web installer -> select Support -> select Uninstall. If Uninstall initializes, reboot your computer after the process finishes. Then reinstall using the new driver.
If the "Uninstall" option is not available, it would be best to contact Lexmark technical support for assistance.
NOTE: MAKE SURE TO USE THE PRINTER DRIVER COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR COMPUTER'S OPERATING SYSTEM.
No it looks like they stopped the support at the old one, this means they did'nt make any drivers for the old one to function on vista. Vista uses a very diferent driver model than xp does. The drivers for xp won't work in any way on vista.
I have just come off the phone to canon and they advised me that they have and will not have for some time any drivers for any Canon product that is running with Windows 7, which i think sucks... a huge company such as Canon and they are wayyy behind on technoligy, i told them i have installed Windows 7 and they told me im better off going back to XP which i will do, i was also informed that they are expecting Microsoft to release the driver for my MP600 to run on Vista 64 bit. omg that is old now and who wants a 64 bit pc anyway lol more trouble than they are worth but i guess Canon will eventually have the drivers i need one day but they are very much on the back seat at the moment.
Windows Vista" is your operating system. I would start by uninstalling (undoing) any of the printer software that you have installed, and try again. It sounds like at this point that you may have bits and pieces of both 'XP' and 'Vista' drivers installed. Your link is pointing to the right page at Dell, just select the "driver" under the windows Vista tab. I'm not sure how that software will be packaged, But I assume that it is self installing once you download it. You just click on it to start the installation. Usually you will leave you USB cable to the printer unplugged until after the installation, and then you are prompted to plug it in. I'm not sure if this will help, but it's difficult to know exactly what you have done to this point.
