I would go directly to the cannon website and download the drivers for the printer directly from the website.

I have been using a Canon MX320 printer with my Acer Aspire netbook for 2 years. It added successfully then using the windows new hardware wizard. Recently the netbook had to go fo "clean up" (virus)


Try to reboot yout computer. And try to disconnect your printer and install again using the Windows new hardware wizard.

If that doesn't work, you can download a driver here and install it manually.

You might have installed the drivers recently with the "found new hard" wizard without selecting "No, Not this time".
Once the "found new hardware" wizard pops up, don't close it or cancel it, rather leave it and directly go to your device manager, expand all the snap-ins and locate any device link with yellow highlighted question (?) mark. Make sure in which device's category it is listed, and install the driver from the "found new hardware" wizard by selecting "No Not this time only" before you proceed to the next step.

If you have problem, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I want it to be exactly how it was brand new


You can run a System Recovery on your computer that will allow you to completely reformat and reinstall the operating system, drivers and simple applications back onto your systems (It will not reload premium applications such as Office etc)

To start and run a complete system recovery do the following: (WARNING: This method will destroy ALL data and information currently installed on your computer, only run this once you have made backups of anything that you want to keep)
  • Power the system down.
  • While the system if off, remove any devices that are connected including printer and pc-cards (external mouse or keyboard do not have to be removed.)
  • Turn the system on.
  • Watch carefully for the message: 'Press F11 to start recovery'. Press F11 when you see this prompt.
  • Choose the 2nd option: 'Full System Restore (Destructive)'
  • Click 'Next'
  • You will be given a warning that this option will destroy data. Once you are certain that you wish to proceed, click 'Yes'
  • The recovery will copy files, when it completed click 'Restart'
  • The system will reboot, as it enters windows it will install drivers and application.

UNABLE TO INSTALL LEXMARK 1275 ALL IN ONE IN VISTA HP


it does happen all the time when one is trying to install a printer yet the computer is not able to. i suggest you turn off your anti virus and windows firewall, remove the printer cable from the computer port or usb port. try to run setup again using your pinter's installation disc.

if the problem continues, then try this unadvisable option: plug your printer to the computer, turn it on. go to control panel and look up for add new hardware or devices. the wizard will search for a new hardware added on you pc. it will search on all drives, so make sure that you have inserted the disc. let the wizard continue copying files fron the disc. once the set up from the disc tries to run itself during the copying process by the wizard, eject the discand cancell all the proccess. go to start menu and look up for printers and faxes open there. if you see that the lemark printer appears on the printers recently added on your pc, then restart your pc.

try to print any word document. i am sure that if you followed my hacking tip correctly, the printer will work just like any other one.

please post me a comment about the outcome.

thanks,

wonder

Some time printers and scanners conflict. Try this, uninstall both printer and the scanner, then install the scanner first and try it to see if it works. Then install your printer. If it doesn't work let me know I'll walk you through. Good luck :)

Audio and video drivers


when you are in the device manager have the computer search for new hardware and see if the devices show up. As for the drivers the ones off the manufacturer website should definitely run the hardware.

Before you search for hardware in windows get into bios and make sure the devices are enabled. If the devices are enabled and the drivers off the man. website do not work the shotgun will. Well it will make you feel better but your video and sound won't work
