Inside w32x86, there will be folders with the names 2 and 3 (some may be absent, which is normal) 6. Delete all of the files and sub-folders in each of the 2 and 3 folders, but not the folders themselves. 7. Inside w32x86, there may be other folders with names starting with "hewlett_packard", "hphp" or something else; delete these folders also. 8. Restart the print spooler (as in 2nd step, above) 9. Restart the computer.
At this point, the system should be pretty well back to the way it was before any printers were installed. The printing subsystem is then "clean" and ready for printers to be added using printer drivers. Install the all-in-one software, now."

You can also export all your current drivers (or just the ones that work ok) to a folder or a compressed file. After reinstalling Windows you will have everything in one place!

After reinstalling Windows all drivers will be back in place in less than 5 minutes - sparing you of searching, inserting disc after disk and losing precious time.

I need a driver in order to be able to use my Sony voice recorder ICD-P520 on Windows 7 64 bit


Unfortunately, Sony does not support this recorder under Win7 64-bit. See http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=ICDP520&SelectOS=27 for the available drivers. You can try the Vista or WinXP driver with the compatibility mode. (This may involve allowing unsigned drivers since there is no information on 64-bit compatibility on either the Sony or Microsoft Vista Compatibility site.)

To try this, download the driver and right click on the installer. Then choose Properties and then the Compatibility tab. Turn on Run program as Compatible with the appropriate OS. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

I do not know if this will work. A method that will work is to use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from the above site in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them.

I hope this helps.

I need a driver for lide80 canoscan scanner


What OS do you have? The drivers (supported OS versions) for the LiDe 80 are available here: http://www.cusa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_lide_80#DriversAndSoftware . If you have Win7 64-bit, the Vista x64 driver doesn't work even in the compatibility mode.

If you want a work-around for the 64-bit OS, Win7 Pro and Ultimate allow you to download and install XP mode free. This takes two programs, Virtual PC and the XP mode, that you download from Microsoft and install. This will run a virtual computer under Win7 and you can install the scanner to the virtual computer. To share files with the real computer, you should store them on external media.

Alternatively for Win7x64, you can install any of the other Virtual computer programs (Parallels, VMWare, etc) with a licensed older version of Windows. Then do the same as above. Another option is a dual boot computer with the older licensed version of Windows with the scanner installed to the "machine" with the older OS. I don't see a Unix driver for this scanner so you need a valid copy of Windows.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(If you have Win7 x64, the only other options are 1) to try and get Canon to extend their drivers (since they do support Win7 32-bit) or 2) get a new scanner.)

Scanner


You need to uninstall the existing driver first and reboot the computer then try downloading the vista driver and install it back that should take care of the issue.
