I have a zebra p520i printer. My company recently upgraded to a windows 7 operating system. The old drivers v2.00 will not work with windows 7. Where do I find the proper drivers?

You could try here

This is a discontinued product so future drivers might be unlikely.

I bought a canon laser shot lbp2900 printer but whenever I try installing it I get an error message saying that the installer is not compatible. I use windoes vista home premium. please help

It could be possible that the drivers those you have installed for your Printer is not for Windows Vista.
Find the link below to download the drivers for Windows Vista.

I hope this should resolve the issue once you re-install the drivers, also please be carefully to select the Windows Vista as operating system while installing the drivers.

Printer will not operate on Windows 7 computer.Computer was upgraded from Vista to 7. Vista was completely removed before installing 7. Tried downloading new drivers, didnot work.

Possibly HP rare not supporting this printer in the new OS, although most Vista drivers are compatible with Windows 7, so have you tried installing the original drivers that came with the printer?

Also, Windows 7 has a driver "compatibility mode". Here is use of the mode explained on the Microsoft tech forum:

Can't install 2500 Lexmark printer to a Gateway desktop computer

Has nothing to do with who manufacturer of your is simply a "windows System" that's all that's relevant. What version of windows are you using? Perhaps it is Vista, and you are using an installation disc that is not compatible with Vista. Go to the Lexmark website and download from there. Not a bad idea even if you have a compatible disc...there may be a problem with it, if it is giving you errors.
Please provide more info on the problem your having, if the above doesn't help.
