New printer instalation

Windows xp not recognising new printer thru' usb port

  • Twilight81 Dec 18, 2007

    I am trying to get my brand new LaserJet 1018 to print.



    Fact: It does work, i´ve tryed it together with an other computer.



    The installation seems to be ok, but it just wont print anything, whatever i try, stays in the quoue. sometimes i do get an error message, saying "the page cannot be printed."



    I know this is a very general description, but i belive it has something to do with the drivers. I have tried the drivers from HP costumer service site, with no different result. could it be the USB drivers? there are no other (new) drivers available from the motherboard manufacturer´s site, so what to do?

Go to Start/Printers and Faxes/Add a printer.
Wheh this starts it will look for a P'n'P printer it may find it and the job is done
If it aske for disk or select from list - choose select from list
Select HP then the model.

It seems as if the supplied disc in these cases is defective and is worth taking up with HP

Hello and welcome draepeacock !
The only solution is a workaround :
If you have the W XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of W XP on your machine from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/
If you still have the install disc , you can also partition your primary and install W XP on the new partition from http://download.cnet.com/Partition-Wizard-Home-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html.Back up your data first.

Both are easy and safe , no specific knowledge required .
Regards .

How can I share my HP officejet 5610 all in one printer that is connected to my desktop that has windows XP with my windows vista laptop?


1. Unplug your USB cable from the back of the Windows XP PC and plug the USB cable directly into your Windows Vista PC.
2. The Windows Vista drivers for your printer should be automatically loaded and your printer will be installed on your Windows Vista PC. If this was successful, skip right to step 3.
If step 2 is not successful

i. Download the Windows Vista printer driver for your printer from
the manufacturers website.

1. If your printers manufacturer has not created a Vista driver
yet, retry step 2.

ii. Install the driver on your Windows Vista PC. During
installation, youll be prompted to connect the printer to your PC.
Choose the option to proceed with installation without connecting the printer.

3. After installation is complete, open the Printers icon in the Windows Vista Control Panel.
4. Right-click on your printer that was just installed and choose Properties.
5. Navigate to the Ports tab.
6. Click Add Port, then select Local Port, then click New Port.
7. For the Port Name, enter the exact network path and share name of your printer. (ex. - \\HOMEPC\Printer2) 8. Click OK and make sure that this new port is selected with a check in the checkbox.
9. Click Apply and then OK to close the printer properties.
10. You should now be able to print from your Windows Vista PC to a shared printer located on your Windows XP PC.

Printer only works on one USB port


You can swap thye ports areound on Vista, but Xp is more difficult. What happens is the USB is converted to an LPT port like lpt1 or 2. This remains in the device manager list because it is usally a fairly permanent object. USB printers are rarely totally USB, like other items. So windows fails to recognise the printer on other ports or, it will require a new installation for that port. With Vista you can go into Device manager and reassign a USB port to a printer port. XP is another ball game you might not want to play in.

Both the Canon XT 350D and the XTi 400D are recognized by any PC with XP windows operative system. It seems you have to check your USB port or USB cable used to connect your cameras to the PC. Sometimes, the PC does not recognize a specific device connected to an USB port. Yopu can get into the System -device manager screen, and uninstall the USB port, and run the utility to recognize changes in the device manager. This will install the USB port driver again, and if it is a software issue the reason of the problem, then it will be fixed.

Also, you can check your cameras and USB cable in a different PC so you can confirm if they both work has should be.
