Need a new printer

Could you please tell me what printer would be compatable with my 7 year old dell comp. I know I need a new comp but can not afford it at this time and my printer just died on me yesterday. We have (had) an EPSON Stylus C60. Also what is the difference between laser and inkjet? Sorry for my ignorance...


Thanks,

Justine

I use the same printer kind of printer for my PC which is older than 8 years... I believe its ink jet... yeah since I have to buy a refill cartage ever who knows when. My printer is really old I would give its name, but I'm not near home to look at it. Either way I find the EPSON printers are good for older computers especially the older models.

Laser printers employ a xerographic printing process but differ from analog photocopiers in that the image is produced by the direct scanning of a laser beam across the printer's photo receptor.

Ink jet use ink to print images... obviously. No real in depth on it since its plain and simple.

Some printers won't work with older OSes. Read the printer box to see if it's backwards compatible to your OS. What happens with the printer, error lights, messages on the computer?

1) Uninstall your printer.
2) Hook up the original usb cable to your laptop, as you did when you originally hooked up the printer.
3) Reinstall the printer with the disk as if it were fresh out of the box.
4) Remember to do exactly as the disk's instructions tell you to do.

If the ink cartridges aren't Dell compatible then you have just wasted ($35).

Sorry to inform you, but it appears that the printer is not compatible with Windows 7, which i think is installed in your new computer. I have checked the HP's website and they have not listed any drivers for Window 7 for this printer.
It does not mean that, we can't try to install it in this computer. Windows 7 has a very good feature called Troubleshoot Compatibility mode, in which we can try to install those drivers in the computer which are compatible with the older version of the Windows.

Have old printmaster platinum 8.0 tried to download on new comp windows 7 it says something about 16 bits


Printmaster platinum 8.0 is rather an old 16bits software and it is not compatible to your new version Win 7 OS.

You can check software compatibility @ Windows 7 Compatibility Center

Your option is to upgrade to version 18 which is Win 7 compatible.

Hope it helps.

Just bought a new computer and my Dell 720printer does not work? Thank you


If you bought a new computer it probably has Windows 7 installed and the Dell 720 may not be compatible. You can try downloading the Vista drivers from Dell here. They may work with Windows 7. If not, you'll need to replace the printer with a later, Windows 7 compatible one.

How to get my printer to print


It may or may not work, but try installing as Administrator and setting the program's EXE into "Compatability Mode for XP SP2",and also, running as Administrator. Windows 7 just doesn't want to support any hardware over like a year old... Drivers are a HUGE issue. Especially for older stuff. Compatability Mode is one way round it but not always.
Also try installing in SAFE MODE if all else fails, still set Comp mode & run as Admin tho.

I have a new HP computer with Windows 7 and when I tried to download the disk for my HP F380 printer it says it is not compatible with Windows 7. Is there something I can download to make them compatible?


You might try compatability mode in 7, or you might complain to HP and ask them to prepare a new driver or ... gasp! ... you could retire your printer!

A much better approach is this: Where is your "old" computer? Network your old with the new and share the printer through the old computer and everyone can use it.

You will need a router, if you don't have one already. Need one? I recommend LinkSys by Cisco.

Im trying to install an old printer on a new vista comp w/o disks


Windows Vista" is your operating system.
I would start by uninstalling (undoing) any of the printer software that you have installed, and try again. It sounds like at this point that you may have bits and pieces of both 'XP' and 'Vista' drivers installed.
Your link is pointing to the right page at Dell, just select the "driver" under the windows Vista tab.
I'm not sure how that software will be packaged, But I assume that it is self installing once you download it. You just click on it to start the installation. Usually you will leave you USB cable to the printer unplugged until after the installation, and then you are prompted to plug it in.
I'm not sure if this will help, but it's difficult to know exactly what you have done to this point.
