Does the printer have an ethernet port or wireless card? There should be documentation for setting up the printer on the network on the manufacturers' website.

Load the software on the second computer ... tell the wizard that the printer is connected to the first computer. Everything should work from there.

Sounds like your printer isn't configured for "sharing." Go to Control panel > Network and Sharing Center > Choose homegroup and sharing options. Make sure Printer has a check mark.

If you have any other computers, check them to see if you can print from them.

I have encountered a problem while installing Windows XP over Windows 7 on my laptop Compaq CQ62-410-US


Most likely you will have problem trying to install windows XP in a windows 7. It is better to use a virtual machine on your windos 7 instead. Windows XP mode will not work on a Home edition of Windows 7. you can download the Virtual machine in this link: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=4580
Once you have downloaded and install this run it. then install the XP on this mode by -run the virtual machine -go through the setup -insert the installation disk -wait for the installation is complete
Then every time you will run the virtual machine it will go to the XP that you installed.
hope this helps

Desktop computer windows xp...sons laptop windows 7 ..wireless router....same internete signal...can his laptop find my printer..or do i need to run same cd on my sons laptop..to get it to install on...


Hi,

Yes it is possible, you have to install the pritner software on your Sons laptop.

1) For sharing, if you have a network printer connected to your router, then select the network option while installing the printer (If you would have given us the printer model and make we could have given step by step instructions).

2) If the printer is connected to your XP computer and you want to share it, share the printer from XP as mentioned in the steps below.

>> Open Printers and Faxes. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Printers and Faxes.
>> Right-click the printer you want to share, and then click Sharing.
>> On the Sharing tab, click Share this printer and then type a share name for the shared printer (e.g. MyPrinter), click on Apply and Ok. (as shown below)

Now goto the Windows 7 laptop and follow the steps as mentioned below,

>> Click Start >> Click on Devices and Printers >> Click on Add Printer (as shown below)

shreysri_9.jpg
>> A new window will come up, click on Add a network printer (as shown below)

shreysri_11.jpg
>> The laptop will search the network for the printer and display it on the list, click on the printer and click on next. The laptop will install the software required, do ensure the printer installation disc is in the laptop in case if Windows 7 wont have the driver it will take it from the disc.

Regards,
Shrey

Konica minolta page pro with windows 7


I looked at the manufacturer's web-site:
http://onyxftp.mykonicaminolta.com/download/SearchResults.aspx?productname=1350W

and you are correct -- there are drivers for 2000/XP, and for 95/98, but nothing for Vista nor Windows 7.

Find an old computer running Windows 2000 or XP, and connect the printer to it, and "share" the printer across your home-network.

I want to share an HP 7760 on an XP with Win 7


To get ahead of myself and answer your question first, your Win 7 machine may automatically load a driver for your shared printer.

Please have a look at the procedure below: (these instructions assume that your XP machine is sharing the HP printer and that your Win 7 laptop can "see" your network and the shared printer connected to your XP desktop computer)

On the Win7 machine, follow these steps:

1) In "Control Panel" click "Add local printer"
2) Create New Port > Local port
3) Port Name is "\\xpcomputername\printername" - without the quotes

(insert the XP's real network name and your printer's real name in the above location)

4) Click <OK>

5) Windows 7 should automatically load a driver allowing you to print on the HP connected to the XP from the Win7 laptop.

I hope this helps!

Just bought win 7 laptops wont connect to my lexmark x1180 printer connected to my desktop running xp any ideas?


Enable File and Print Sharing on your XP system.
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Printers
Enable "sharing' for the printer.

Click Start
Right-mouse click My Computer
Click Properties
Click Computer Name
to show the current "workgroup" name on your XP system.

On the Windows 7 system:
Configure it into the same workgroup.
Then, "Add Network Printer", connecting to your XP system, and pointing at the shared printer.

Instaling network printer from main computer


On the Vista computer, right click on printer, go to sharing tab, click on Additional Drivers button. On the next screen you need to select Windows XP.

This will ensure that whenever a print request is queued from any computer that runs on Windows XP, it will process the request on the Vista machine.

You should also try to ping the printer. You should also check if the computer is able to share files with Vista machine.
