Hello, We purchased the HP Photosmart B110 all-in-one printer. My husband installed the software from the disk onto his Vista system and had issues. I installed onto my XP and everyting worked perfectly....


1. Uninstall all hp printer software and Reboot your computer
2.Download the Driver for windows Vista (if you go to HP website it should give you an option to Choose you OS)
3.DO NOT connect any cables when you are installing the software
4.You system will ask you to connect the USB cable (doing that before can mess up the whole set up)
5. You are all set

I need Postscript drivers for Lexmark printer T630.


This printer supports Postscript, PPDS, and PDF emulation only on systems up to Windows 2000, on Mac OS X up to 10.6, and on Solaris.
Windows 7and Vista are not fully compatible with this printer, and the printer will not have full functionalities on this systems.

If you have Win XP, Win dows Server 2003, Win 98, Win 2000 or Mac OS, then all you have got to do is installing full factory driver software.

If you have Windows 7 or Vista, then you should upgrade the printer to get full features. Lexmark has opted for not updating this printer software. Full software release for Windows Vista and Windows 7 does not exist.

The drivers and software for this printer can be downloaded from Lexmark website, using the links below:

Lexmark_AAG_WinXP_PS_Driver- Post script driver.

System PCL Driver for Microsoft Windows XP and Server 2003

System PCL Driver for Microsoft Windows 2000.

PCL6 driver for Microsoft Windows 95, 98 and Me.

Printing solution for Mac OS X v.10.6.

Print driver for Sun Solaris 10 x86 systems.

Network print support for Linux.

Here the full driver installation procedure : How to install a Lexmark printer without the driver and software disk.

The printer may still work on Vista and Windows 7 using the built in drivers, but it will have limited functionality. See: Windows 7 Information.

Lexmark x75

You will be having a USB cable that connects the printer to your PC or notebook. I believe you have an internet connection that is always on. Once you connect the printer to the PC or notebook and if you have windows vista, the printer software will be automatically downloaded and installed. If you are not using Windows Vista, here are some links for the printer drivers.

ginko says:
are you there?

ginko says:
seems you need to re-install driver softwar for your printer, do you have printer disks? and which version of operative system are you using (Windows XP, Vista, etc)

ginko says:
I will try to find drivers for windows, give me some minute

ginko says:
Here is Driver download page for your printer, start downloading the one for for your system:

ginko says:

ginko says:
Here is installation guide, same as the one provided with printer:

ginko says:

ginko says:
download the above driver software.

ginko says:
is the same as the one distributed in disk coming with printer , if you have the disk you can use the disk

ginko says:
Once you downloaded software do the following:

ginko says:
1 disconnect printer from PC

ginko says:
2 expand and install downloaded software, alternatevely use the disk provided with the printer. Do this with printer disconnected.

ginko says:
3 when asked from installation, or after installation, connect the printer to your computer using the USB cable , not the network (ethernet) cable

ginko says:
4 the printer will be recognised in Windows, if it does not restart the PC

ginko says:
You must use an usb cable to use this printer as a local printer.

ginko says:
You may need a router to use the ethernet cable (one similar to thick phone cable) provided with the printer

ginko says:
therefore ensure you are using the right cable

ginko says:
here is an example of usb cable, sometimes it is not provided with the printer, have a look,. This is the right cable you need to use to connect this printer to local computer, the other one is for network

ginko says:
check on how it looks like and ensure you are using the right one

ginko says:
let me know if you need further help, I am not receiving much feedback from you

ginko says:
Best regards

ginko says:
Also check under printers in vista that you have this printer installed and that it is the default print

I could not get any feedback from you , do not know if there was something wrong with chat software

Updated to Windows Vista and now the Dell 922 AIO scanner won't work

For windows Vista; it is imperative to run the Vista patch which can be found on the Dell website (Downloads and drivers).
Make sure that you run the patch, after removing the printer USB cable from the computer. Restart the computer as the patch suggests and then install the Vista specific drivers, which also need to be downloaded from Dell Website.
Again, do not connect the printer unless the installation software asks you to.
For scanner issues, those who are unable to get anything scanned to their computer, and are able to print, it is essentialy a Firewall/Anti-virus issue. You can check that out by trying to scan using an application such as MSPaint (Start> type 'mspaint' > hit enter).
