Hi dreslsam,

Is it the Pixma 90, or the Pixma 90v? I believe there is a difference, but I could be wrong.

If you go to this link, and select Vista as your OS (operating system) you should be able to download the correct driver that you need for your printer. Make sure not to select the 64 bit version!

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=357&modelid=11009

Once downloaded, make sure you unpack it and keep in mind where it saved it to in your computer. Then, right-click your my computer. select properties, then on the left hand side of the window select 'device manager'

You should be able to quickly see a yellow question mark next to your printer on this list. If not, I would think it should be located under the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' section (USB) where you can update the driver manually.

To update a driver manually, right-click on the driver on your device manager, select update driver, and when prompted, do not search automatically for the correct driver (hence manually versus automatically). Select 'I will install the device myself' and navigate through the explorer menu to the location of your recently downloaded and unpackaged driver. It should now install and complete successfully. It may prompt you once that the device driver is not signed by Microsoft, but since we are sure of the location that we downloaded it from, this is not a concern.

Once you've done all that (Phew!) You may still need to go to your Printers & Faxes menu and set-up your printer and make it your default printing device. Piece of cake after all of that driver stuff right?

If you still have any questions or problems after that, post again and let us know! Hope that helps.

Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Printer works with Snow Leopard OS?


The MX870 is compatible with Mac OS X, all versions. I think the CD that comes with the unit will have the Mac Snow Leopard drivers on it, but if not you will be able to download them here.

I am considering buying a new computer. I have a


The good news is that your Canon iP8500 printer is Windows Vista compatible. Driver page for them is here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=357&modelid=10440

More good news, the Epson Perfection 1650 scanner is also compatible with Windows Vista.

It would also appear that your HP Laser Jet 5mp printer is compatible with Windows Vista:

Whether or not to get a Dell or HP is a preference thing. The biggest thing you have to ask yourself is, how much are you wanting to spend on a new system? Both vendors are fairly comparable as far as hardware and support. The biggest thing I should mention is that, ensure that when you buy your system, to tell whomever you are buying it from that you need Windows Vista 32 bit. Not all of your components were compatible with Vista 64 bit.
Best of Luck and hope you have lots of fun with your new system!

How can i install a canon ip 1900 in windows 98?


Try going to the Canon website and download your software. ( http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010647.asp )

Uninstall any software that you may already have install for the Canon by going to ' add & remove programs ', uninstall your canon printer by going to ' printers & faxes, disconnect your Canon printer from your computer.

Reboot your computer.

Install the Canon printer software that you downloaded.

Hook up your Canon printer to your computer.

The software should install automatically. If not, re-install the software you downloaded.

This product can be used with Windows Vista.
  • To use it with Windows Vista, you must install the driver software for Windows Vista.
  • The Windows XP drivers for your product cannot be used under Windows Vista.
  • Easy-WebPrint and PhotoRecord do not support Windows Vista.
Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows Vista :
Before upgrading your OS from Windows XP to Windows Vista, delete / uninstall all the Windows XP driver software first; then, upgrade the OS to Windows Vista and install Vista driver software.
If you have already upgraded your computer's OS to Windows Vista :
Delete / uninstall the Windows XP drivers before installing Vista drivers.

I hope it helps!!!

You can get the downloads you need here. Windows Vista includes drivers for the iP3000 as part of the OS, and you can download the Add-on module to get full functionality for the printer. There are answers here to most questions regarding Vista compatibility.

go to the part of the program that deals with compatibility of programs. I never liked vista so I never installed it. anyway in the compatibility box choose windows xp and run it. worse comes to worse go to www dot downloads dot com and download the drivers for your printer FOR vista.
