Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

I added printer software, and my system is locked up/

I had the cd for a canon printer, which I use on my desktop. I loaded it into my laptop with Vista yesterday. I was able to print to the printer, but then my system locked up. I cannot open my documents, and cannot get the canon box to go away, even when I turn the computer off illegally. Ctl/ALT/DEL does nothing. Please help me!

it could be a software conflict / component incompatibility between your printer utility and your vista.

here's what you can do:

set your computer to safe mode, then uninstall the printer and its utility from your vista.

once done, reinstall the printer and let vista use its "built-in" drivers (since almost all printers manufactured before 2008 has drivers on vista by default) or let your computer download a compatible driver online.

I had my printer stored while overseas now I want to hook up again to my computer. What and how do I do it please.


Do you have the cd that came with the printer
if you have it place it in the cd/dvd player
when it comes up on the desktop install the software for it
then when asked plug in the printer
and windows should do it for you

if you cannot find the cd
then you can normally download the cd software from the canon website
making sure you enter the correct operating system as in xp or vista or windows 7

good luck

How to install my printer

the software from the cd is available here for free download.
Make sure you select the correct operating system (the one running on the laptop) so that the correct software is displayed & save the download to your desktop so that you can find it easily.
Once the download finishes, double click on it to start the installation, follow the prompts, then reboot the laptop if asked to do so..

NOTE** Do not connect the USB cable from the printer to the laptop until the software asks you to as this may corrupt the install.

the full manual is available (free) for your printer by downloading it from the bottom of the same page the drivers are on.

How do I set up to print wirelessly with a Canon MP 620 Printer?


Thank you for your query

To share your printer you will need to do the following

1) On your desktop Click on Start>Control Panel>Printers and faxes
2) Right click on the printer in question and click on sharing
3) Put a dot in 'share this printer' and give it a name

This has now made your printer a shared one on the network

On your Laptops click on Start>Control Panel>Printers and faxes
2) Click on Add printer
3) On the resulting screen put a dot in the option 'A network printer, or printer attached to another computer'
4) Then follow through and the printer you named on your network

This will add the printer to your laptop and will allow you to print

Do the same for the other laptop

I hope this has been useful
