    Hi IT_Wiz,

    Thank you for your answer.

    Perhaps I must buy a laserprinter.

    Could you recommend a cheap, simple but good printer?

I have a Pfaff 7570 with Windows 7 professional. Windows 7 has a special program that allows you to use programs with windows XP. I have everything installed properly but can not get any communication...

I can't tell you much or offer any advice but I can tell you with absolute certainty the Windows 7 compatibility programme has never worked for me.

I have stuff I used to use with XP and either it works with 7 or it doesn't and if it doesn't the compatibility programme makes not a jot of difference.

Good luck!

Where can I find a download for a Compaq Printer IJ1200 with a Windows XP system? I currently have no CD drive available!

Compaq printers are manufactured by Hp and support is available at the Hp site.

This link will take you to a hp page where you can use the auto detect feature to let hp find your printer.

This link will take you to a list of IJ1200 printers to chose from.
With this one you will need to select your operating system from a list, scroll down to the driver selection and click on your desired driver.

I have been sucessful useing either method.

Will a IJ1200 printer work with a compaq presario 5000? We are small church..whose printer IJ600 stopped working and we see a Ij1200 on-line at ebay. Betty

It's not an issue of your computer, but rather your operating system. If you're running XP, Vista, or 7, it should not be a problem. Just download the drivers for this model from and it will identify the printer.

Problems installing printer

Hey there,
It's frustrating I know!
It doesn't work in Vista. It is only supported by Windows up to XP. I now have another PC running XP just so I can use my printer!

Here's the XP driver anyway:

Right-clicking on the driver application and clicking Properties to Enable XP Compatibility in the Compatibility tab doesn't work either, it just doesn't have support beyond XP, so you'll have to do what I did and load up XP on another machine if you want to use you printer!

Wish I had better news for you, mate!
Good Luck

Communication Error

This printer I suspect is a re-branded Lexmark similar to the Z series. There appears to be a firmware failure. I have a Z12 stripped on my bench right now- nothing there to repair.- Check with Compaq first of course but it reckon its time for the bin.

I need Philips DSS 350 Computer Speakers driver win xp

Speakers do not need drivers usually. What else do they do other than play sounds? Check the content of the disk. and tell me I am curious. Meanwhile if there is a program your the speakers load it then right click on the icon and then properties then compatibility and read on. or Go to My Computer/Help and type = program compatibility. You will discover a device to get XP to read programs as for 98.
