I can not get my printer to work. I went from xp to vista and my printer and computer do not see each other. When trying to install the printer the message states that my spooler is not running as well. Why is this so hard to hook up on vista systems?

Vista has its problems with drivers. If you can get on the internet dowlad and install the Vista drivers for the model of printer you have. Also you can go to control panel and delete this printer out and shut your computer off. Plug printer in and turn the computer on. If it is a plug and play printer the computer should find it and install. You should get a copy of the install disc. Good luck

How to make printer canon mpc200 run in windows xp sp2 or vista


http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=259&modelid=9283#DownloadDetailAct

I see what you mean...they do mention that the drivers will not work for Vista, however the don't say it will not work for XP (sp3)...
So try this.
Uninstall the printer drivers you have it there now.
Disconnect the printer from the computer.
Reinstall the new driver and don't connect the printer until instructed to do so.
Run the installation program and connect the printer and reboot.
It will help to install it this way.
good luck, please leave rating. thank you kindly

I cannot find a printer to work on Acer Aspire X3200 Vista


any printer will work in your PC...as long as your computer meet the minimum requirement for the printer u choose

before you install the driver..remove or Un install the other program and driver you installed earlier
and restart the PC

you must install the right driver...install the driver that compatible to your Operating System (Xp, Vista), when installing the printer select the right port where you connect your printer (USB, LPT).

they are some installation instruction that you need to install the Printer Driver and Utilities first...then connect the printer or Restart the PC and connect the printer....

goodluck

Downgrade Acer M1641 from Vista home premium to Windows XP


Its a driver incompatibility issue. Many hardware components designed for Vista are incompatible with XP. This means that the Realtek audio driver may be the Vista version. Also, some hardware has of yet no XP drivers, so your audio components were designed for Vista only.
While it may be possible to "force" the driver to work, it may involve a number of hacks to the Windows registry and other files.

I have purchased a new computer with Vista Home Premium. It will not activate my disc for installing the X1195 printer I am trying to connect. It works happily on the older one.


i had the same problem on my laptop only with a dell printer. the printer worked great with my older computer that had windows xp. it could be the drivers for the printer are not compatiable with vista. try to find new drivers on the manufacturers website, thats what i would do.

so just go to the website of the printers manufacturers and look up ur model number and then try to find drivers for it.

I bought a computer with vista and now I can't hook up my cannon printer or scanner.


The bad news first... Vista hates and will not drive cannon products.
The other bad news... Cannon went out of the printer business and never wrote a vista driver.
Now some more bad news... vista is not really as fully developed as the XP os and don't really know if it will ever be, it's pretty, but it's one problem after another.
The solution is either buy new printer/scanner or revert Ur system to an XP os. This is the sort if issue that windows went back to selling and supporting XP.
This is a very traveled road!
