I have Windows Vista and a pixma mp 500 all in one printer,scanner and when I try to scan to email, it doesn't go to email and I am then unable to open my email without first turning off my pc. Where do I...


check out the windows site @ www.microsoft.com/WINDOWS/

honestly, before you download any updates, i would try a complete uninstall/reinstall of the the printer and all it's drivers. windows vista is pretty retarded when it comes to installing programs/software/hardware and likes to "forget" the correct way of operating, which means that you find yourself having to reinstall things a second time.

You can download the drivers from Dell's support pages for some OS's (I see a WinXP, Vista 32-bit and Win2K.) If your new computer came with Win7, you may not have much luck unless you use a work-around. Dell's site indicates that the Vista driver doesn't work in Win7. You can try the compatability mode to install the driver (download, extract the files to a new folder, find the .exe file and right click on it. Choose Properties and then the Compatability tab. Check the box for Run as and choose the correct OS version. Then right click again and choose Run as administrator.) Alternatively, Win7 Pro and Ultimate can run a virtual XP computer (on some computers). It takes two downloads and installation of the programs from Microsoft. Then install the printer using the XP driver from Dell.
The drivers are available here: (long URL)

I hope this helps.

After reinstalling windows vista home premium and microsoft works


Pushing the continue button and getting a test page just lets you know the printer is functional. This is a test without having the computer involved. If you can print a test page from the print driver, this lets you know that there is communication between the computer and the printer.

Uninstall your current drivers for the 1700, there are 2 places to look for the drivers, one would be in your all programs list, Dell Printer, uninstall, the other would be in control panel, programs and features, look for the dell printer software there. Once you have this uninstalled, go to device manager while the printer is still attached to your computer. In device manger look for the icon that represents the printer, right click it and then click uninstall. Now detach your printer, close device manager, restart your computer. Next you will boot back to the desktop, attach your printer, if windows recognizes and tries to install the printer, stop/cancel it. Install the printer drivers from the file you downloaded from the Dell support site. Now try printing from your application.


Dell's support site and download the most recent Vista drivers. Here is the link for Vista driver http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WLH&osl=EN&catid=-1&impid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=PRN_LSR_1700N&hidos=WW1&hidlang=en&TabIndex=

Printer is pixma mp 500 help


Try reloading your printer program from either the disk that came with the printer or go to www.cannon.com and download the free drivers located within the download section. You might try changing out the printer cable if you have an extra one also. Check the default set up to make sure your computer is using the right printer. Some of the simple things have shot my tires out when I have spent time looking for more complex issues. :)

My Windows Vista SP1 isn't compatible with my Canon PIXMA MP600


You can download the vista drivers here. Under drivers and support then choose your operating system. Make sure to select the correct Vista for your system they have vista and vista 64. You can find which you are running by right clicking on my computer and choosing properties. It is likely normal Vista (Vista 32).

You will have to use the New Dell 922 VISTA drivers and not the XP drivers in order for it to work with your Vista Loaded PC. The new drivers for the 922 under Vista are available for download at Dells website. Check out this link http://support.euro.dell.com/support/topics/topic.aspx/emea/shared/support/dsn/en/document?c=ed&docid=314972&l=en&s=bsd Hope this helps.
