The Vista 64 driver isn't all that compatible, but the C5150N driver works flawlessly. (The Vista driver will sometimes clear the screen almost like you've locked the console with a message about how the driver is trying to communicate with you. It works, kind of, but it's a PITA.)

Download and install the C5100 Windows x64 (or x86) driver from Okidata. Then, when you are installing the printer (or doing a driver update from the driver manager), you have to override windows by selecting the "browse my computer for driver software" option, then, "let me pick from a list of devices on my computer," and finally, "have disk..." Browse to the folder you installed the driver to, and when prompted to select the right printer, choose the C5150 driver.

Alternatively, if the printer is already installed, you can right click on it and select 'Printer Properties" (Be careful -- there is also a 'properties' and they are not the same thing.) Switch to the advanced tab at the top, and press 'New Driver..." and click "have disk...".

There's no difference between the C5150 and C5100 driver that I can tell, except that the C5100 driver is fully compatible with Windows 7 x64. It flawlessly works with my C5100.

Be warned if you disconnect the printer and attach it to a different USB port, Windows will reinstall what it thinks is the correct (and wrong) C5100 driver -- you will have to change it again.

I'm sure someone with the right knowledge could modify the .inf file for us, but it's not that hard to override windows.

SOURCE: Our OKI C5100 is showing 171:Fatal error. What

The 171 Fatal error:

Upper Thermistor, State:Open

When an open circuit has been detected in the heat roller thermistor (low temperature)

Check the heater connector and the thermistor connector to make sure they are seated properly. If OK you probably need to replace the fuser.

Hope this helps.

My printer got error Button for Resoration Page Overrun.when start print 300 copy not finish and come this error. how to solve ?


There is no reference to your problem in the C5100 Service manual. I have 17 years experience on OKI printers and never heard of this error. it must be specific to a program you are using. try printing the windows test page and if that is ok consult the people who made the program as that's where the trouble must lay.

OKI C5100 printer Right side of printed page has repeat print. What do I have to do to get a clean copy without the duplicate print?


You have to determine if the drum cartridge or the fuser is the problem. Do a panic stop before the paper hits the fuser and see if it has the residual image. If it is clean then the fuser is the problem.

When printing on my oki c5100 text or image - it prints fine but with a smudge/ghost of the image or text also on the paper. I know I need to order new toner - could this be why?


Open you printer and pull out the fuser assembly and look if the upper roller is fine because if it`s damaged it could lead to the double image.

OKI C5100 only printing cyan


I need to know if the test page that the unit prints as "Demo Page" comes out fine. If this is the case, your problem is within your application (software) or computer connection (check all cables). If this is NOT the case, I'll need to know more about your scenario. Operating system, type of connection (USB, parallel) and what are you trying to print. I'll be waiting.
