Question about HP Fax Machines

1 Answer

We got a new computer, Dell Intel Pentium, dual core, with Windows Vista. I have put the green HP All-in-One Windows CD into the computer and can get no startup screen to appear. I went to "Computer" (doesn't say My Computer) and do not see the CD-Rom Icon it says to double-click on. So, I am not able to attach the printer yet. What to do now?

Have you tried just hooking the printer up without the software,I have recently purchased a new coputer with windows vista and when i plug a new device in the computer will go online and find everything it needs to run the devise,I suggest you turn on your computer be online then just plug the printer in.Your computer should then find that a new devise has been added then it should be able to identify it. hope it helps

Computer has a different ip address than my hp 8600 printer and says it is offline when it isn't


This should work (assuming that you are using Windows Vista or newer):
Remove the printer from Windows (in Control Panel, Printers And Devices right-click and choose "Remove)"
Then choose Add Printer and follow the wizard and it should find your wireless printer automatically.
Please let me know if this doesn't work.

How to connect to computer


The unit has a parallel port interface and is supported under Windows 95/98/Me, Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP . The drivers are available here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/office/laser_facsimile/laser_class_2050_2050p_2060_2060p/laser_class_2060p?selectedName=Specifications#DriversAndSoftware . For the supported OS versions, download the drivers and then run the exe. If it extracts drivers, note the folder in which they are stored. Then launch the Add a Printer Wizard (Printers and Faxes in XP IIRC). If your computer doesn't have a parallel port, parallel to USB adapters do exist.

Neither Vista or Win7 Compatibility Center have the unit listed. The XP driver may work in Vista 32-bit with the compatibility mode on. For Win7 or Vista 64-bit, I'd suggest a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS. For the most setups, you'll need a licensed version of the Windows OS. (Virtual computer software include: Parallels, VMWare and Virtual PC.)

With Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can download Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft for free, then install them in order. The printer will install normally into the XP virtual computer. However, files from the main computer will need to go onto optical media or an external drive in order to share them with the virtual computer for printing.

I hope this helps.

Hello,

To install your fax4100, you will need to install the appropriate drivers for your OS.

For windows XP

For windows Vista

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/ca/en/dlf/dlf/000000/003100/dlf003164.html?reg=us&c=ca&lang=en&prod=fax4100_us&type2=1&os=74&flang=8&dlid=dlf003164

For windows 7 the drivers are built in.
If you do not find the drivers, please do a windows update.
You may need to do the windows update more then once.

Thanks,

Pat

Go to www.hp.com look in the support/download section.

HP might even be able to detect your printer and download the driver automatically.

My printer is a lexmark p3150. I used it with my old hp computer. I have just purchased a new HP with windows vista. When I tried to use the same printer the computer says it is installed but it does not...


Microsoft has been very lax about writing new drivers for older devices under Vista.

Go to www.drivers.com or www.lexmark.com and look for a Vista Driver.

I don't think you will find one, tho.

Good Luck.

I think it's highly unlikely there's a Vista Driver. Does the fax have a USB Port?

Very likely cause by window vista security. Reduce the security level and check your window security setting.
