Canon LBP printer driver won't work on my Dell Laptop


1) Make SURE the Canon printer is NOT attached to the Inspiron when installing the software!

Why?

When a device is installed (In this case the device is a printer), Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find suitable matching drivers.

If THE drivers are not already there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic, one-size-fits-all, drivers.
This = NO

A driver conflict will result when THE drivers are installed afterwards;

Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

Drivers and software is installed FIRST, then the printer is plugged into the computer, and turned on.

If you have just downloaded the drivers, I suggest you go back, and download the Software AND the drivers /package.
You need the software for the user interface.

When you see the file name DOUBLE-click on it.

Then follow the easy instructions of the Installation Wizard.
(Just click on Next, Next, and Finish, at the bottom of the three small windows)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

(Don't forget to Restart the computer after the drivers and software is installed. Then when Windows has loaded again connect the printer to the computer with the USB cable, and turn the printer on.

After a couple of seconds you should see a message out of the system task bar, at the bottom of the monitor screen;

"Found new hardware", and then after perhaps another one;

"Found Canon LBP XXXX" )

If you do not have the software, you need to download the software from one of the following locations:

Official Canon Drivers and Software

Canon USA:DRIVER & DOWNLOADS

After downloading is finished, unplug the printer USB and run the software that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you when to connect USB.

Some Canon printers are not Vista compatible and cannot work on Vista.
