SOURCE: Scan file from Lexmark 6100 is very large

If the documents you are scanning are black and white, make sure you are selecting that in the scanner dialogue box. If you need to keep gradiants, but don't need color, try selecting grayscale. If you are adjusting your DPI (dots per inch) to the maximum (300), try using something lower (recommend 150). Lastly, check the settings in the software you use to create PDFs to ensure they are the same as what you use at the office.

Have lost ability to scan or copy


Do you have your original install disks? Go to Control Panel, Programs and uninstall the old stuff. Then just reinstall the new. If you don't have the original install disks, go to the printer manufacturers website and download the new drivers and install them.

I am trying to install a new computer which previously had a different HP3015 printer. How do I get the computer to recognize the new HP3015?


Before you start the installation it would be best to uninstall the old printer driver. Then connect the new printer, put in its disk, wait until that starts to load, and when it prompts you, turn on the new printer. If this helps, Please Rate me! :)

Hi, Had my printer on old computer, when I went to put in on new computer the alarm light comes on and nothing else works.


Before connecting the printer to the new computer you will need to install the drivers using the printer disk.

If the printer disk is too old, or if you have misplaced the disk you will need to go to the printer manufacturer website, find support page, enter printer model, and download updated driver.

Connect printer only after installing driver.

If the printer is too old, it may not be compatible with Vista or newer operative systems.

If i get a new desk top with windows 7/ 64 bit will it be compatable with my officejet t45?


More than likely...I have yet to have an old printer not work with a new computer, in fact the new computer is likely to have your driver pre-loaded making installation easier. Using the disk that came with it, however, often adds additional features such as an easier to use troubleshoot/toolbox.

Hp 6122 Printer Printer driver removal


I believe if you go to HP.com and do their auto-select printer routine it should delete the old driver for you.

1700 printer


How did you install the printer?
I have found that if you just let your computer recognise new hardware, it really has a hard time with the USB printing to the 1700's.

Originally there was a disk that came with the 1700 printer. You do want to use that.
During the install, you run the software, and then turn on the printer. (You can have the printer on during the install, but ignore the Windows Wizards that come up).
If you don't have the original 1700 install disk, you can download it from Dell.

The problem is with USB port configuration. These little 1700's are just a pain sometimes if not installed the way they were originally designed.

Old hp printer won't print anything with new hp desktop computer


Your PC has VISTA loaded (according to the HP web specs)

This printer has no specific driver for VISTA but basic functionality is supported by VISTA without the need to load a seperate driver.

refer HERE

The printer connects via a USB cable to the PC and should be detected automatically by VISTA whe the printer is turned on.

The original CD would have drivers for an earlier vesrion of windows (98 or XP) so you should uninstall any programs that were installed offthe disk.

Updating a printer with Vista.


Hp has a new driver package available from its website. However, it's best to install the basic printer driver under vista, as the software package does not work properly (even though it says it's for vista).
