Question about PC Desktops

I bought a new processor with vista, on my old computor I had xp. When I ran the software on the new computor, my MX700 printer would not work. Now it won`t work on the old one either. The printer is 6 or 7 months old.

Download the software for Vista for you're Canon PIXMA MX700.
Click on this link. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=OSCompatibilitySupportAct&keycode=vistadr&fcategoryid=238&modelid=15651
From time to time it's suggested to check the web site for updated printer software. XP or Vista. To keep printer's & other device running, it is also suggested to keep you're windows up to date. Run windows update service. Most (Not all), printer Mfg's warrant their printer for 1 year. If you feel you're printer is faulty please contact Cannon. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ContactCanonAct

Good Luck!

Vista can not work on those older systems. change it to xp-os, then re-load the printer driver software.

Probably, having more RAM would make VMWARE run faster.

Check the manufacturer's web-site -- surely, they have a version which *DOES* work as a "native" application under Windows XP and Windows VIsta and Windows 7, i.e., no need for "compatibility settings".

Hi Stoney520, Use your search window and go to your model of Printer, eg, Hewlet Packare 1350 and click the search button. after you get to your appropriate printer manufacturer they will have upgrade software for Windows Vista. Its usually free because everybody upgrades.Good Luck.

This usually happen with an old printer and new computer with new OS.
You can try downloading your new driver for Vista at Lexmark website here:

http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_652569478_0_en,00.html

If doesn't work, ask to customer service for assistance

But at this point:

1) is better to get a new printer compatible with Vista

or

2) Downgrade your OS to one compatible with your printer.

Vista isn't programmed to work with software for greeting cards, etc.


Im afraid this is only an online advice site.
You can install xp from the cd, you will then have to download the drivers for your devices. (make a list before you install).
Its really easy just read everything and double check what youre doing.
As for memory check compatibility, google your motherboard reference to see what standard it takes and then buy from someone like crucial. Installing it is easy, however if you had enough to run vista xp should be ok.
I cant help thinking it would be easier just to upgrade your printer, what model is it???? Check the makers website for vista drivers........
Where do you live, maybe we can find someone local to help you

There are some compatiblity problems between Vista and your printer. Check this web page to download a driver that may provide limited printing capability for your printer...you'll need to use Windows Scanners and Cameras or Photo Gallery for scanning.
