Hi There,

You may have already been to this page but your Windows 7 software download for the printer is here;

http://www.kodak.com/global/mul/service/downloads/DownloadLookup.jhtml?pq-path=12667&product=EKN034524

It's not commonly known that with many printers, you may be inclined to plug the printer in and let WIndows 7 go fetch the drivers but they are never the full package for the printer and so often the printer may nut function properly.

I've been installing printers for many years and have settled on what I believe to be the foolproof method excepting other issues besides a clean install of a printer.

Here are the steps you should follow.

1. Disconnect the printer from the computer.
2. Go to the Control Panel> Programs and if your printer driver or any other accessies by Kodak show up as programs, remove them cmpletely (i.e. if during removal the program offers you opportunities to keep certain profiles, etc., choose NO and remove all traces possible.
3. Restart your computer.
4. Hold down on the Windows Logo key in bottom left of keyboard and hit the R key.
5. In the Run window that appears, type %temp% and hit ENTER
6. You are now looking at your Windows Temp Files. Left click inside that window anywhere one time, then hold down the CTRL key and hit the A key.
7. All temp files are selected so hit DELETE. Let Windows keep any files it says are in use but dump the rest and then empty your Recycle Bin.
8. Restart your computer.
9. Go to the page above and download the W7 software for your printer by saving it to the Desktop. DO not run it from the Kodak site.
10. Double click on the install file you just downloaded and follow the prompts. Do NOT reconnect the computer to the printer until prompted and do not have any other programs running.

Good Luck to you Larry.

Regards,
TheSelkie

Hi, the problem is that your system wasn't designed for Windows 7. You could try the Packard Bell website and down load the latest driver, even its not for Windows 7. Or try the Realtrek AC'97 sound driver, its free to down load from a google search. Your other potenial problem is that you will need minimum of 2Gig of memory to run Windows 7.

Canon Canoscan D1259U2F dont have any driver for Windows 7 64-bit


the only successful method I found for using CanoScan D1250U2F in 64 bit Windows 7 (I guess the same would be for 64 bit Vista) is to use Windows XP Mode in Virtual PC (attach the scanner as USB device and that's it - works perfectly)

I had a problem with Windows 7 detecting the device as CanoScan (needed for Windows XP Mode to detect is as USB device and allow attach) - the solution was to unplug the scanner, plug it in and CANCEL Windows 7 hardware detection process before it finishes - this leaves it as "CanoScan" device (auto-detect will leave it as "Unrecognized device" and with that unusable/un-attachable in Windows XP Mode)

latest versions of Windows XP Mode will make your hard drives accessible as network locations (no need for external media)

Instalation problem in windos 7


The Windows 7 version you have is most likely a RC (release candidate) version, it is the latest Beta version before the official release in Oct. This version do not have all the device drivers and you may be able to download a Windows 7 driver from the manufacturer's WEB site. If not, you will need to wait until it is avaiable.

Distorted Sound Problem on Acer 9410


You could have "damaged" the software drivers for your SOUND CARD. If you have the original software drivers, then uninstall, REBOOT, REinstall them again. You could have other problems, but I see the sound card drivers 1st.
