How to install for window 2000 software ?


You'll need the cd-rom for it and it shouldn't be a proprietary version of it that works only on a particular model.

If it's all the same, using Windows XP, Vista, or 7 is better than 2000. Windows 2000 was rather buggy like its predecessors, and using a later operating system allows more software possibilities.

I don't know many people who are using Windows 3.1, or Windows 95, or Windows 98, or Windows 2000 anymore.

System running slower that normal, and freezes randomly.


1st you go BIOS setup and change the Boot Order or Boot sequence.
  • Select Boot From CD Rom.
  • Then Save the setting .
  • Insert the Window XP Cd in the Cd Driver .
  • when the computer start again .
  • It will boot from Cd Rom.
Then you follow the instruction and install the windows.

Brother MFC-440CN Error 50


The cover on the 440CN is tough to get off. I have removed many. I will tell you that the cable from the scan (black mylar [plastic]) is fragile. I destroyed one of the printers by killing the connector end of the cable. That being said, on the 440 you have to remove the push button panel before the cover. There are 3 screws in the back. The cover then snaps off but feels like you are breaking it and it will snap as it comes off. I did not break this part on any of the printers so.... you should not worry too much. After that there are clips on the front that keep the top cover on. You must release these with a screw driver. You can insert the screw driver and twist. While twisting apply some upward pressure and it will release. You also have to remove a number of connectors, ground wire to get it apart.

I have just connected a HP Deskjet 3940 to my new acer computer and it is not printing. I went in print then options and clicked on a few things but still not working. Have new cartidges in 22 and 21


un install the printer driver,reboot ,windows should detect new hardware ,and then insert the cd that came with the printer select have disc and re-install the software.
if your acer has vista you may need to get a vista driver for it,or worse the printer is not compatible with vista.

good luck

I just got a new computer , operating on vista and the cd rom gives this error when i try to install it"your windows version is not supported by the setup program" this is for a "pixma mp 130/110"


Hi,

The message is indicative that the software is not meant for Vista. Perhaps what you can do is to proceed to the Canon site search for and download Vista compatible driver for your printer. Alternately you can try here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
