You need the Win7 driver, available here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=&cc=us&product=2512008& . If your printer has been connected to the computer (data cable), you may need to uninstall the generic OS driver that was installed. Then unplug the data cable, if USB, and install the Win7 software. (A full software version is available and I recommend that since you will be able to use the Toolbox to check your ink levels among other features.)

If you use the generic driver, some of the printer features should still work. You need at least the basic HP driver to run the scanner.

I hope this helps.

Will my printer still work if I upgrade my computer to Windows 10?


Virtually any Windows 7 or 8 desktop/laptop qualifies for a free upgrade to Windows 10. Will your printer work? You do not state the printer you have so I cannot answer that, however if you check the manufacturers website they should have a download driver for Windows 10 if it supports it. Or go to the Microsoft Compatibility website and check for your devices. http://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows/compatibility/CompatCenter/Home?Language=en-CA

Upgrading to Windows 7?


Many people are hurrying to upgrade their Windows XP or Vista computers to Windows 7.

My advice is simple. Do a little bit of research first to make sure your computer and other peripheral equipment, especially printers, have drivers available for the new operating system. There is no greater frustration when you think that you are making an improvement and your sound or your printer doesn't work after the upgrade.

Nearly all computer manufacturers have support sites where you can check to see if the drivers are indeed available. For example: If you have an HP or Compaq go to HP Support and enter your model number and follow the links to Software & Driver Downloads. Click on Windows 7 when you get the OS choices and it will let you know if drivers for that equipment are available.

I would also suggest that when you find the drivers for your computer and equipment, that you go ahead and download them to your computer and burn them all onto a CD/DVD so that when you do upgrade they will be right there at your fingertips and the process will go smoothly.

Happy Upgrading!

Installing window 7 on hp650 with suse


Each computer you purchase comes with a Home Edition Windows 7 product, unless otherwise stated in the computer's details. To upgrade your edition, you must purchase a new license key, such as an Enterprise license key. You no longer need to install an upgrade to promote your computer. Instead, Windows 7 has a "Windows Anytime Upgrade" utility that allows you to enter a new license and promote your computer's operating system.

Click the Windows "Start" button. Type "windows anytime upgrade" in the search text box. Press "Enter." This command starts the upgrade wizard for Windows 7. Click the "Windows Anytime Upgrade" option, and select "Enter an Upgrade Key" in the options section. This activates a text box where you type your new license key. Type the Enterprise key in the license text box labeled "Upgrade Key." Click "Next." Windows verifies your license key is valid and tells you that you must wait several minutes to activate your new product license. Click "Reboot" after your new product activates. When you reboot, notice the new product edition "Enterprise" is shown in the Windows splash screen.

Hi

Once you upgrade your operating system, it get new windows registry and your printer driver will not working in the new operating system. I suggest you install the printer driver again and set it up once more. Make sure your printer driver is compatible with your operating system.

Can't connect printer.


Hi, It seems that the you might have upgraded your computer to Windows 7 and you are not able to get your printer work. In this case you need to download printer's driver for the operating system that you are using that is Windows 7 64-bit. Download the driver from: http://www.epson.co.uk/Printers-and-All-In-Ones/Inkjet/Epson-Stylus-DX5000-all-in-one-printer/Drivers-Support
Once downloaded, install the printer using the new obtained driver. Hope the new driver would work on your computer. Moreover, you may change the USB port to which the printer is connected, meaning unplug the printer from the computer and re-connect it to different USB port of your computer and try to install printer.
Cheers!

Printer will not operate on Windows 7 computer.Computer was upgraded from Vista to 7. Vista was completely removed before installing 7. Tried downloading new drivers, didnot work.


Possibly HP rare not supporting this printer in the new OS, although most Vista drivers are compatible with Windows 7, so have you tried installing the original drivers that came with the printer?

Also, Windows 7 has a driver "compatibility mode". Here is use of the mode explained on the Microsoft tech forum:

Old computer died. new computer has Windows 7. Can't get printer to install even though it says it is and status is good. Help!


Try the link "Upgrading to Windows 7?" from this Lexmark support page. This is also where you would download the software for your model and OS.

Lexmark X3470 Downloads

If attempting a reinstallation, uninstall the current printer driver first and follow the "Upgrading to Windows 7?" information.

Running windows 7 printer wont print anything but installed ok


Is this a brand new computer or did you upgrade to Windows 7? If you did an upgrade, you needed to uninstall the old drivers (with the printer disconnected from the computer). Then you could install Windows 7 and finally install the printer.

You can try unplugging the USB cable, uninstalling the printer and then reinstalling it.

What software are you using to create the file that you want to print? With Microsoft Office, I have seen reports that changing the font on a document can cure a failure to print the document with Word.

I hope this helps.
