When you plug the printer in, do you head the "Dong" noise from windoze and does the add new hardware wizard pop up?

Have you tried using the uninstall option for the software and reinstalling again?

Are you using Windoze XP with service pack 2 installed and updated?

Have you gotten your USB ports to work with any other devices?

I have a Canon Pixma MP540 and lost the disk and manual that came with it. I need to hook it up to a new computer...can I do this without the installation hardware? If not, where can I get it?

It is possible to hook it up without the installation hardware, if you have a recent operating system like Windows 7 or Vista this should automatically detect on connection, if that fails then you can visit the Canon website and download the driver(that makes it work for your operating system)
Go to this website: Where it says operating system select which one you are using, ie.. Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7, select the language(with the drop down menus). Then once those are selected scroll down the page and look for MP Drivers there should be two listed one with 64 bit written on the end. This is for a 64 Bit operating system so check what you have first before downloading.

Printer driver

Sometimes Printer drivers are NATIVE to the XP or Visa operating system. Try hooking it up and installing the software.
t may just self install.
If not, then.
Go to Control Panel, Add Hardware Wizard and find Printers, Canon and ip1700.
