From HP website you can get it free.

Click here to download driver for Vista for your printer.

On the above page select your printer model and select driver for Vista.

Please be patience as the file size might be large, so it will take time to complete download.

After download you can install your driver.

Thanks and 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

Upgrading to Windows 7?


Many people are hurrying to upgrade their Windows XP or Vista computers to Windows 7.

My advice is simple. Do a little bit of research first to make sure your computer and other peripheral equipment, especially printers, have drivers available for the new operating system. There is no greater frustration when you think that you are making an improvement and your sound or your printer doesn't work after the upgrade.

Nearly all computer manufacturers have support sites where you can check to see if the drivers are indeed available. For example: If you have an HP or Compaq go to HP Support and enter your model number and follow the links to Software & Driver Downloads. Click on Windows 7 when you get the OS choices and it will let you know if drivers for that equipment are available.

I would also suggest that when you find the drivers for your computer and equipment, that you go ahead and download them to your computer and burn them all onto a CD/DVD so that when you do upgrade they will be right there at your fingertips and the process will go smoothly.

Happy Upgrading!

Could you help me put my lexmark 1200 onto my computer i have windows vista


You need to run installer software from printer disk, before connecting the printer usb to computer.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
Note:some printerdoes not work on Vista, if you do not find any driver download for Vista on your model page, that means your model is not Vista compatible.

Hi Stoney520, Use your search window and go to your model of Printer, eg, Hewlet Packare 1350 and click the search button. after you get to your appropriate printer manufacturer they will have upgrade software for Windows Vista. Its usually free because everybody upgrades.Good Luck.

I have bouht hp deskjet d1500 series ihave fitted it but it said ihave to upgrade my computer to 200 from 98 please could you helpme thankyourita


  The problem is that this particular Deskjet does not have any software drivers that are compatible with Windows 98.  Only for Operating Systems that are running Windows 2000 or later. Which includes XP and Vista. The only alternative is to do some research on other printers and make sure that they will be compatible with windows 98.
 Of course, there is always an option to upgrading your computer to  Windows 2000 or Xp....

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....


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

Vista isn't programmed to work with software for greeting cards, etc.


Im afraid this is only an online advice site.
You can install xp from the cd, you will then have to download the drivers for your devices. (make a list before you install).
Its really easy just read everything and double check what youre doing.
As for memory check compatibility, google your motherboard reference to see what standard it takes and then buy from someone like crucial. Installing it is easy, however if you had enough to run vista xp should be ok.
I cant help thinking it would be easier just to upgrade your printer, what model is it???? Check the makers website for vista drivers........
Where do you live, maybe we can find someone local to help you
