Switch from Windows 2000 to vista lost functionality

I just switched fromm windows 2000 to Vista. When I plugged the printer in Vista installed the driver. But I now no longer have the ability to select double-sided printing from the Page Layout tab I think poster printing is missing as well. I don't see any appropriate drivers for this on the epson site either (vista)

Any ideas

    OK, let's try using Windows Vista Drivers instead of Epson's drivers: 1st, uninstall all drivers/software for the Epson Printer, then Follow these steps:




    1. Set up your computer.


    2. Connect a USB cable to your computer and then to your Epson product.


    3. Turn on your Epson product. After a moment, you see this screen:




    4. Select Locate and install driver software (recommended). Your Epson product drivers install automatically. (You may need to select this option more than once during installation.)


    5. Close any open windows on your screen.

Hi, I'm trying to install a Panasonic Printer KX-MB771 but I have no disc, can you help please. Thanks Corinne


Hey Corinne, to install a printer on your computer all you need is the driver for your according printer, since you have lost the Installation disk you can always download these drivers from the internet. After you've downloaded the drivers plug in the printer into your computer and run the installation. Follow the instructions and you should be good to go.

Here is a link where you can download the drivers for KX-MB771 for all Windows Operating Systems: http://drivers.downloadatoz.com/8128,panasonic-kx-mb771-mb773-mb781-mb783-driver-multi-function-station-1-11-windows-9x-me-nt4-2000-xp%28x32-x64%29-vista%28x32-x64%29-english/downloading.html

Have fun :)

I need Postscript drivers for Lexmark printer T630.


Hi.

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.

Regards.

WINDOWS 7 COMPATIBLE?


Yes, just use Windows 7 Update function to install proper drivers automatically. The drivers provided by Brother on CD do not work, though.

Duplex printing


Greetings...

From the HP site...

This download includes a Print Driver only. This driver makes it possible to use the basic functions for the printer. HP will not be providing a Full Featured Vista Software and Driver for this product; therefore, some functionality may be lost when you use this product with Windows Vista.

What you can try to do is...

Uninstall the Vista driver and install the XP driver... this has worked for some HP printers...

New computer with Windows Vista


I have my HP OfficeJet T45xi working with Vista Ultimate. I used a cable coverter to switch to USB. I must install the printer with the USB cord unattached. Install as T40xi whose driver comes with Vista. Set to USB port 1 or 2. Plug USB into USB port 1 or 2 (only ones of six USB ports that worked for me). When Windows discovers the printer do not let it install the printer and tell it to not try again.

Works for me. Hope it helps you!
