Hmmmm.... Bootleg copies of Windows are not legitimate Windows. You stated that you have a Dell OptiPlex. You may be able to use the DVD that your brother has to reinstall Windows 7. Because bootleg copies of the operating system work differently, you are not able to use most of your computers features. My answer is if you can find a Dell OEM Windows 7 disk on Amazon, try that. If it works, then you had a bad copy of Windows installed.

i don't know. please open as much as possible to see if there is olde paper still in the machine. if clear, maybe a
flashlight would help search for something in feed tray.
if you haven't tried yet, shut off printer. unplug all printer wires. reconnect power cord then load a few sheets. push the 'Stop' button a few times. push and hold stop button down for 15 seconds. try to copy something. if it works, reconnect to computer and try printing off something from notepad as a test. if still not OK. Canon may be able to test machine over the internet. also, there may be updates to
install for your neighbour.

First, make sure that the power is on. If needed, open the front cover and open the paper output tray. Open the paper output cover and wait for the ink cartridge carrier to move to the right. The ink access door should open automatically when the cartridges are in position. Push down on the cartridge lock lever until it clicks; the lever forms a U-shape in front of the individual cartridge. The Black cartridge is on the right. Color is on the left. Pull the old cartridge straight out. Prepare the new cartridge and gently push it into the cartridge slot until it touches the back of the slot. Push the cartridge lock lever up until it clicks to lock the cartridge into place.

I hope this helps. See the pictures and video clips here: .

You go on your computer open the start menu and go to devices and printers. Click on it. Click on your Canon Mx320 icon. Then it will say scanner management and you click on Scan Photos or Documents. The printer is just waiting for you to do it from the computer. From there you can preview the scanned photo or documented.
Press "OK" in the printer as well.
