PSC1510 & Vista problem

My printer worked just fine with my XP laptop.
I got a new laptop with Vista, downloaded the newest printer drivers and the problem is....
It prints a gray background for every page in addition to what it's supposed to print.
I can't do a diagnostic because the install discs are for XP.

The gray background is ruining everything. PLS HELP.

The problem cannot BE solved. It's yet ANOTHER Vista screw-up.

Original Problem:

"No matter what I try - every page from Jarte prints out with an UNWANTED gray
background.
This does not always happen when I print from the web, make copies or print from
Microsoft Word. I ran diagnostics on my printer HP PSC1510 and it's fine.
Test pages print ok, too.
Please help - I had Jarte on my last laptop (Windows XP), it worked very well
and I liked it much better than MS Word."

I emailed Jarte Tech support and got the following answer:

"The problem you encountered is a bug in Windows Vista. You will see the same problem when using WordPad on Windows Vista. As you have noticed, not all programs are affected by the bug. The problem is occurring because you are using a Windows color scheme that uses a gray background color for text windows. Unfortunately, the only work around is to specify white as the background color to use for text windows. Hopefully, Microsoft will correct the problem in a future Windows Vista service pack."

Hi Aaron here im looking for a free driver for lexmark z12 printer im running windows vista. Im sick of being promised free download if i register and then being quoted an expensive fee at the end thanks...


Aaron: It appears that this product was end-of-lifed before they actually built a Vista driver for it. Official Lexmark support says Windows XP/2000 only. I believe you may be out of luck with this model printer on Vista. (And please do not pay anyone any fees for this driver, as it does not exist.)

Dell 924 printer won't work on vista OS


First, here is a link to the vista 32 bit drivers. Install these drivers if you have not installed them before.

Second, if you are using Vista 64 bit, Dell does not make a driver for the 64 bit O/S. You can re-install your Vista to 32 bit or buy a printer that is compatible with 64 bit O/S

Printer (922) won't install on new laptop


If your laptop is running Vista and your old desktop was running XP and the disk you got with your printer had drivers that worked with XP and Vista is not listed on them, it would be a case of incompatibility. You would need to go to the Dell website to download updated drivers for Vista if they are not of the standard Vista driver package. (The driver model changed between XP and Vista making XP drivers incompatible with Vista.)

I cannot get the software to work for my 820 on my new vista. Any suggestions


If you read the link, you will see vista already have a driver built in http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supAdvice.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&noteoid=86150&type=highlights

the statement below was cut from the Epson website -

Drivers are included with Windows Vista. Just connect your Epson product to your computer and follow the on-screen instructions that Windows Vista displays to guide you through driver installation.

Can't open HP Director


You say it works with XP, so I assume it doesn't work with Vista? If that's the case you can download the newest Vista drivers HERE.

Hope that helps...

My HP Printer Deskjet 3320 is not working with Windows Vista


You can follow Hp's Installing and Configuring an Alternate Driver in Windows Vista. Click this link provided by HP.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00808478&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=75035

Before you follow though with Hp's alternet driver site. Please run windows update for Vista un till no updates are left. If your printer still fails to run correctly than try HP's alternate drive.

Good luck & kind regaurds..
