    This worked, I couldn't print Tabloid, but now I can. The only thing I lost that I can see is the HP preview that I had before. In devices and printers, double click to open, don't go to preferences with the right click.. couldn't find what he was talking about at first. Thanks so much!

I cannot install my dell A940 printer using the CD to my Toshiba with windows 7

Often, older printers do not have drivers for Windows 7. Mostly because the manufacturer decided that this printer is too old to develop new drivers. The only possible solution would be to use Windows Vista drivers. Vista drivers are similar to Windows 7 and have worked for me in the past.

HP Deskjet F4480 will not print after vista to windows 7 upgrade. Ran HP printer diagnostic tool says driver conflict, uninstalled re-installed same problem, same diagnositics. Attempted to print test...

Windows 7 comes with basic driver built into the operating system (in-OS driver). With this basic driver, the buttons on the product do not function and some of the advanced product features are not available. However, using the workaround procedures in this document, you can still print from a software program. You can also import and view images on a memory card, if your product has a memory card slot. When you connect the product to the computer, Windows 7 detects the hardware and automatically installs the correct driver. A notification lets you know when installation begins and when it is complete. You do not have to download any software or insert the product CD. Follow these steps to install the basic driver in Windows 7.
  1. Turn the product on.
  2. Connect the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable to the product and to the computer.
  3. A Your devices are ready to use window might display on the screen. If the window displays and does not close automatically, close the window.
Your basic Windows 7 driver is now installed. Some functions might not be available, but you can use the following workaround procedures instead.

It was printing ok in tabloid size paper, suddenly, after reinstallation of my winxp PS, it is printing halfsize on my tabloid size paper.

Having reinstalled the driver check both the printer and also the print driver for a zoom setting that would show as 50% as a default. This is most likely to be on the print driver setup on the PC. This can also happen if you get a combination of 'zoom to fit' and then change the orientation from portrait to landscape and vice versa so check this setting as well. You can avoid this by setting auto adjust for rotation from portrait to landscape and vice versa.
