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 imageclass d880 info


What OS is the Vaio running? Canon has drivers for the 32-bit versions of Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. The Windows 7 driver may work with Windows 8 32-bit in the compatibility mode. However, most computers with Vista and later versions of Windows have the 64-bit OS; the exception are some machines that came with 2 GB or less of memory when new. Canon did not create a 64-bit driver for the imageCLASS D880. To check your OS version, go to the System Control Panel. (XP, Vista and Windows 7: Start > Control Panel (in the right hand column) > System and Security > System. In Windows 8: press the Windows key + X and do the same steps.) Then read the version information, if x64 is included then the 32-bit drivers won't work.

If you do have the correct driver installed for your OS, try swapping your data cable and changing the USB port, if in use. Do not use a USB hub but a direct connection to the computer. Check the device manager to make sure that there are no problems with the hardware drivers. (As above, go to the control panel. Then either in Hardware or System and Security choose the Device Manager. From the Windows key+X, just choose the Device Manager.) Expand the section for the type of port you are using and look for a triangle with a red X or yellow exclamation point. Try updating or uninstalling the driver and then letting the correct driver load when you reboot the computer. (Check with Sony for the driver.)

Next try uninstalling the printer and removing the data cable from your computer. Then install the driver from http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/office/imageclass_copiers/imageclass_d880/imageclass_d880#DriversAndSoftware . Then connect the printer to the computer when prompted to do so. Failure to install the Canon software first can interfere with the installation of the correct driver.

I hope this helps.

I have just purchased a Dell laptop with Windows 7 home premium installed. I have a Cannon PIXMA MP495 printer, what do I need to do to operate thist printer wirelessly?


If you have a wireless router with a wireless network then -

Configure the IP address your wireless printer, (this is done through the printer's menu settings) make sure it matches the IP address range on your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.*** then configure the wireless printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP address range but at a higher address eg. 192.168.1.10 so it does not clash with any other IP addresses.
Next install the printer driver normally.
Then configure the printer Properties.
Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the your printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port -
Port Name eg. 192.168.1.10
Printer name eg Network printer
Click OK
Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.

Problem on the device driver/ motherboard


Boot under XP, go to Dell's website and download the XP driver for your laptop noting where it is saved. Don't install it, copy it to a thumb drive or a CD. Reboot into Windows 7 and then install the XP driver. You'll get a message that it isn't the correct one but choose install anyway. That chip doesn't fully support AERO in Win 7 but will do most everything you will need. If you want to disable the pointing stick on the keyboard, download the XP Dell trackpad software. That lets you go in and deactivate the pointing stick. I find it annoying.

I have exactly the same problem :-(((


On this link: "http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&osl=EN&catid=-1&impid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1521&hidos=WLH&hidlang=en&TabIndex=" try to check of what OS that you are using, if it is Windows XP or Windows Vista.If you are using Windows Vista and still not compatible things happen that you need to backup all of your important files and have to do a DELL PC RESTORE. Restoring your computer settings from factory. Everything on it will be gone. So again, make sure to backup the files. But in a case still nothing happens, then have to call Dell technical support for assistance. There would be a scenario that your audio device is working badly that needs to be replace which is the motherboard. Thank you.
