Alps printers will not work in Vista, but will work in Windows 7. You need Windows 7 Ultimate or Pro, and a good PC. Load VirtualXP, which is included in Windows 7. When you run VirtualXP, your machine will be acting just like an old XP machine. It will run everything that won't run in Vista, including your Alps printer.

I have not seen any specific drivers for Vista, however if you have Vista running on a 32 bit machine (go to control panel and select system to see what you have), you can network (assuming that you have a network) into the printer if you attach the printer to a Windows XP Service Pack 2 machine (Any old machine will do, does not need to be fast) on your network and set the printer properties to share. Then you just add a printer from network and accept the Drivers when prompted. Will not work with 64bit Vista. When I tried this with a 64 bit Vista machine the spooler shuts down.

Why alps md-1000 printer not responding after driver installed


Can you provide more details about the problem? Will the printer print a self test page? What OS, computer, and cable connection are you using? The ALPS printers were designed to work with Windows 95 using a serial port internal to the motherboard. There is a driver that supports a USB port and Windows XP available. XP will automatically install the MS driver using the plug and play feature. The MS driver is useless and it shouldn't be used, but XP will default to it. Don't delete this driver, but rename. There are no native drivers for Windows 7 or higher.

MD 1000 Thermal Printer: I need a driver for ALPS MD1000 printer that will ...


Go to the ALPS Yahoo Group. They have an extensive file section with drivers. Windows will use the default plug and play driver for the printer. The MS version is very limited. You should rename the MS driver to something else like "MS Alps Driver" and then install the ALPS driver you find at the Yahoo Group. These will give you full functionality.

good luck

I'm looking for a vista or windows 7 driver for my Alps MD-1000


Hello,

There isn't any Vista and Windows 7 drivers for this printer. The manufacturer still hasn't produced any. This is really sad because I have the same printer and I have to stick with XP just to be able to use it.

My 7310 all-in-one prints blank pages


Might be the printer ink is finish or the cartridge not touch with the paper while printing. Please check the printer cartridge. First you need to check that. If everything is okay then visit this web site and select your computer operating system and download the printer software.

» Microsoft Windows Vista » Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit) » Microsoft Windows XP » Microsoft Windows XP x64 » Microsoft Windows 2000 » Mac OS X » Mac OS 9 » Linux
After download the software uninstall and reinstall the printer software. For more help

Canon MP500 all in one printer is not compatible with Windows Vista. Is there a solution for this problem, or do I need to buy a different printer?


My Canon PIXMA MP500, purchased in mid-2006, came with the (then) ScanSoft OmniPage SE2 software on a CD. The PC had WinXP Installed. I had no use for the ScanSoft it so I made no effort to install it.
Fast Forward:
Two PC crashes later, July 2009. Using Win Vista Home Premium
LOST, important WinWord document file, only a hard copy available.
I tried to recover, scanning the "Xerox" copy. The SE Version of OmniPage was very complicated but I succeeded in producing a replacement *.doc file.

It appears that newer editions of WinVista contain the right printer drivers for this Canon Model.

Driver will not install due to "unknown error."


I am wondering if you have uninstalled all previous drivers .. I know in some instances the Alps Yahoo Groups suggest you un-install all drivers, so the program looks at it as a brand new install driver.

Try this.

I cant install my printer


If you have lost the disk you need to download the software from factory website.

Submit a new request from fixya, asking 'I need the link to driver download for printer xxx xxx' where instead of xxx xxx you write make and model for your printer.

Requests on Fixya free forum are usually answered within 24 hours, if you get no answer submit the query again.

I need vista support software


hi selim2004,

You need to download the Windows Vista compatible driver for your X1185 at
http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?lxkprod=Lexmark+X1185

Be sure to select the correct Windows Vista driver (there is one for Vista (x64) and one for Vista (which is the 32-bit version and the one you are most likely running on your PC)

Hope you find this information helpful in getting your printer to function correctly with your PC
Kind regards and thanks for using the FixYa service
