Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Spooler driver problem

I recently upgraded to windows vista business and had my laptop data transfered. Went well but unfortunately we can't get the printer to connect and stay connected. The tech at my job mentioned that we need to download a driver upgrade and this should solve it.

I go to Canon download center and there are hundreds of options. Not sure which is the correct one. My laptop is Dell Vostro 1700.

Did you do an in place upgrade or a custom install of Win7? What is your printer status in the printer and faxes window? If you see an exclamation point, it may be that you need to install an updated driver. Often you can let the Windows troubleshoot device fix the issue successfully. In that same printer and faxes window, check if you have files in the print spooler. You may need to clear the old queued files.

If you can't delete them directly the spooler window, you may need to stop the spooler and restart it. In XP, this was easy in the command prompt window (Command run works but you do one line each time. In Vista and probably in Win7 you'll have to do this as administrator. Assuming the spooler commands haven't changed, type "net stop spooler" (enter) then "net start spooler" (enter) without the quotes. (I know this worked in 2K and XP; I've never checked it in Vista or Win7.)

In addition, many USB printers need to have the USB cable removed from both the printer and the computer when you turn off and unplug the printer to reset the printer.

A final step to try is running the following patch from Dell:; this totally removes the printer from your computer. Then you can reinstall it after rebooting the computer (wait until it tells you to restart).

Print spooler crashes on Vista business

How do you connect the printer? Try to do it manually. Instead of searching for the printer on the network, give the path manually.
For ex.: \\name_of_the_server\name_of_the_shared_printer.

Canon BJC 210s driver with vista system

Vista is terrible for doing this,,,everyone has the same problems.
The best thing i can suggest is to downgrade your computer to Windows XP,,you will be far happier,,and you wont have these problems any more.
Vista has another two years to go before they work all the bugs out of it, and they provide support for older equipment,,but dont hold your breath on that one...LOL
