Re: Cant install drivers on Vista

Try installing the drivers in compatibility mode, check the vista help by pressing f1 and look for compatibility wizard then try installing it at this mode, if it still wouldn't install, you need to to the manufacturers website and get a new driver specifically for vista...

Mp160 printer prints on multiple pages, doesn't appear to be a set up problem. Re-installed drivers no change, reset printer no change. Any ideas?

Are you saying you are getting the same page printed many times? What happens when you make a single copy? do you get one copy or multiple copies? If you get one then then it does not sound like a machine fault. I wonder how you "Reinstalled" the driver. You should do this via programs, canon, uninstall. A lot of people go to printers and right click on delete thinking that uninstalls it. Try it my way and download the latest driver from Canons website. unplug the usb cable and install the software and only plug the cable in when prompted to. Hope fully all should be well.
Now this may sound silly but if you are using windows vista then funny things can happen. Canon and vista dont go well but then what does with vista. lol

Mp160 pixma cannon scanner not working

Is the printer able to photocopy without the use of the computer? (place a picture in the scanner and hit copy on the printer) If it works than the issue is the scanner driver not responding. Download the latest driver from canons website and re-install it.
If it does not work than it a hardware issue with the scanner and a visit to the service centre would be needed.
Regards GM

I want to setup my canon pixma mp 150 on my lap top

Using your laptop go to canons website, under drivers and support input the model of your printer and download the drivers for your printer and Operating system you are using. Or if you have the installation disk that came with your printer you might want to use it, but the websites drivers will be the latest updates. Download and run the program when asked and install the drivers, leave the printer unattached from the computer while drivers are being installed. When software is compeleted plug the printer into a USB port and windows should load the drivers automaticaly.

I have a canon MP270 printer. I have installed the proper drivers off of the CD onto PC (Vista). I can get it to print fine, but it won't scan. It shuts down the Navigator EX program once it is scanned....

Please got to Canons web site and make sure you get the latest drivers for Vista. Programs/drivers on CD's are often out of date as goods stay on the shelf for some time. I think you will find once you have done this it will function properly

Im trying to install my printer but it's an xp disc and im on vista any ideas. ?

Go to the printer manufacturers web site and download Vista drivers. There is a difference between Vista 32 bit and Vista 64 bit, so make sure you download the correct ones. If your printer is an older model, (4+) years, then lots of luck finding a suitable driver.

HP Deskjet F2210 won't install on Vista

Go to control panel/programs and features and uninstall the HP driver and all associated software.

Reboot, then reinstall the LATEST version written SPECIFICALLY for VISTA SP2. Install the driver BEFORE you connect the printer. After you install the driver if your computer still doesn't recognize the printer, leave it connected and reboot.

You should see the 'found new hardware' wizard open and automatically install the printer.

Hope this works. Good luck.

Try to reinstall your drivers from your printer/scanner installation disk, if that does not work go to the manufacture's website then download the latest update of drivers or software for your printer/scanner...this problem usually happens when you switch to VISTA....

I have a new computer w/vista & my printer is an i960. The setup software does not work on this computer

I think the setup doesn't work on your computer becaue of the system you are using.
I see you are using Vista, which presents many problems concerning Drivers of new devices.
I think you should check the website of the Printer, so you can consult the download page, and try downloading a driver supported by Visat.
That's all!
