Your new printer probably has windows vista, and you will have to out to canon.com, and check on a vista update for your printer. This is a common problem with new computers and existing printers.

EPSON STYLUS nx410 PRINTER NOT RECOGNIXED BY MICROSOFT LOGO


Look for CD that came with printer to install drivers on your computer. If that is not available, you can search the internet for printer drivers for your specific printer. Make sure your computer has all it's current Microsoft updates too (many times newer printer drivers don't get added to the updates right away).

USB Printer does not recognize with XP Computer


In most cases, the driver for a printer is supplied when you purchase it. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to provide the driver along with the device to make sure the working.

However, most of the Operating Systems come with native driver support for many known printers. This is the fact we have to take care while purchasing a printer. Even though we misplaced the driver disc, if we purchase a good manufacturer printer, there is a chance to get the native support from Operating System itself.


There are some scenarios where printer may not be recognized by the Operating System due to some conflict with other devices.


Please follow the troubleshooting steps and check the operation:
  • Ensure that the supplied USB cable is firmly connected to both the printer and computer side.

How to install printer


First thing to do is install your drivers and/or software for your printer on your computer. Do not connect the printer to the computer until you are finished loading these files.

If its a brand new printer, it should have came with a disk to install the software. Find the disk and put it in your CDROM on your computer. The computer usually recognizes the CD automatically and the installation program will appear on your screen and give instructions to follow. If your computer does not auto recognize the CD and start the install then you need to manually locate the program to start it yourself. To locate the installation file on the CD double click "my computer" from your desktop and find the drive that represents it. Your CDROM should be either "D" or any letters in sequence beyond that point. The name of the install program should show up under the drive letter that represents the CDROM. When you locate it, double click on it and find the application for installation. Double click on the install file and then just follow the prompts to complete it. After the installation of the software is complete, connect your printer to your computer and turn it on. Your computer will automatically recognize the printer and tell you that your device is connected and ready to use.

Happy Printing!

How to install driver "canon ip 1100"


The driver is a set of "directions" which gives the hardware (in this case your printer) directions on what to do and when.
You can do it one of three ways.
  1. Plug the printer into your computer and when new hardware is recognized by your computer, depending on the operating system, it will install the drivers stored in a Windows folder currently on your computer.
  2. Plug the printer into your computer and when new hardware is recognized by your computer it will prompt you with a new window to install the drivers and then either direct the computer to find the drivers on your computer (if you have them in a file from a download) or on the Install CD and proceed to install them.
  3. Insert install CD in the CD/DVD ROM and if it doesn't open on its own, click on MY COMPUTER then CD/DVD Drive (probably D or E drive) and click on install.
  4. Reboot computer and all should be fine
I hope this helps and good luck!

G85 not being recognized by computer


Do you have the Software/Install CD that came with it? Does the CD cover Windows XP? The original G85 software was only for Windows 98. Later, they finally developed the software to cover Windows XP.
