# Add a Canon printer with no driver and Windows update doesn't work

Q: Add a Canon printer with no driver and Windows update doesn't work

I'm trying to add a Canon imageCLASS MF7470 printer to my laptop. When I plug it into the USB, Windows 7 detects it, but as unspecified. It says no driver is installed. When I do a Windows update it comes up with other imageCLASS models but not the one I have. I've tried going thru these threads to locate my options but nothing works. When I go to add printer, properties is as far as I can go cause the only tabs I get there are general and hardware. This is a work printer for a jobsite, so of course the disk has been lost at some point, but I need this running ASAP.

A: Add a Canon printer with no driver and Windows update doesn't work

Here is the driver page for Canon, just specify your OS, download drivers, install and go at it could be that MS just doesn't provide them. However Canon does for both 32 and 64 bit.

I downloaded Win7 x86 drivers for our Ricoh Aficio MP 171 from Ricoh, to load them onto a machine freshly updated from XP to Win 7. Every time i try to install them, Windows tells me the default driver it chose is the best one and won't install it. The driver it is using does squat, the printer was working fine when it was connected to XP, now the most we have gotten out of it is a few pages of jibberish when we tried to print a photo.

I have tried manually installing the driver from the device manager, i tell it to use a folder on the desktop where i copied the driver, but when i press next it immediately says the driver being used is up to date. I tried telling it to read from a dvd i burned the driver folder on to, it doesn't like that either.

I am toying with the idea of deleting the default driver from system32 (but copying it first to a data key), disconnecting from the 'net, and then installing the one from Ricoh.

Running Win 7 64 bit. Printer: Canon ImageRunner Pro 7110VP.

The most recent driver Canon offers for this printer is from 2005, and Win7 says it's incompatible when I chose the "have disk" option. Is there a way to install a printer as if 7 were running XP?

I have to install it over a network via TCP/IP if that matters.

Last week I had to replace my old computer which used XP SP2. The new system uses Vista Home Premium and I'm unable to get my Canon MultiPass F60 printer to print. I've tried an Internet search for a driver and I've tried to add a printer through the Control Panel. My current printer isn't listed under the Canon products.

Can anyone direct me to a download that will resolve this issue or tell me which Canon product under Add a Printer will work for mine? Any help will be appreciated.

Have 3 PCs on home network and recently upgraded computer 2 to Windows 8
Computer 1 has lan connection, Windows 7 (can see all computers on network, can't access Computer 2)
Computer 2 Wi-fi connection, Windows 8 (can't see or access other 2 computers on network)
Computer 3 lan connection, Windows Vista (can see & access computer 1 on network, can't see or access Computer 2)

When I run Windows Network Diagnostic, problem can't be identified. I'm trying to print from computer 2 to the printer connected to Computer 1--it worked fine until I upgraded to 8. Have made sure all the sharing options are on and the Homegroup password is the same for the Computer 1 & 2. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Network printer doesn't work from Windows 8 PC

You will first need to turn on Network Discovery in the Advanced Sharing Settings on the Windows 8 machines.

You will also need to make sure that the Workgroup name on these machines all match, then you should have no problems using the NTFS sharing settings to allow folders to be shared.

In general you will need to install printer drivers onto the Windows 8 machines before they can use the printer, it would be best if the printer drivers were updated versions made to work with Windows 8.

Hi, I have been trying to get windows file and printer sharing working for years now, unsuccessfully. Today I tried again, and here are the steps I took.

Ran network installation wizard on this computer (xp home edition sp3) and made a network setup file on a flash drive, ran that on the other computer I want to share files with (windows xp pro sp3).

I named the workgroup mshome, and when I restarted both computers I shared my My Music folder and opened up My Network Places. The window hung and "Not Responding" showed up in the titlebar (this happened on both computers). Once it opened properly, the list showed things shared years ago on a laptop which I no longer use. The My Music folder I had shared did not show up at all. When clicking "View workgroup computers" the window froze again and eventually showed an error saying:
"Mshome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available."

On the other computer, if I open My Network Places, there is also that same list from that laptop and no My Music. If I click "View workgroup computers" the laptop I had previously mentioned is the only thing in the list.

So the music sharing was pretty much nonfunctional. Any help on getting this working would be greatly greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Is your language Spanish? I have found that in English website there are Windows Vista drivers and updates can be downloaded. Currently almost all the latest HP drivers are for Windows Vista. You may try the drivers to check if they could work properly in Windows 7 RC.
Important Note: Microsoft provides third-party contact information to help you find technical support. This contact information may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this third-party contact information.
You may install it in Windows Vista compatible mode. If it does not work, we may need to wait for new compatible drivers. Meantime, you may install the printing driver for it in Devices and Printers.
1. Open Devices and Printers.2. Click Add a printer.3. Choose an existing LPT port, click Next. 4. Find the driver for HP PSC 1500 series. Click Next. If the driver is not found, click the button Windows Update, wait for it finishes and try to find again.5. Finish the installation with instructions.

I have a basic hp deskjet d1660. The file downloads fine, extracts and nothing. Ran Combofix, it found infections and resolved but I still can not load my printer. I have tried manually also with no results. I am running Windows 7 64-bit on a gateway laptop. Plenty of memory on this computer. I have an espon scanner installed no prob and the printer is loaded on 2 other laptops no problem.
Thank for any help.

Kim

Combofix should be used as part of a malware removal process, not as a standalone tool. The probability that you are still infected with malware is extremely high.

I suggest you follow this guide to create a malware removal thread.

I have a Canon BJC 4400 bubble jet printer that was given to me. I downloaded a driver for it (version 3.97) but when I try to install the driver a window comes up entitled "Extraction Progress" and extraction completes and then a window comes up saying "Canon Information", "all items were successfully extracted." I click OK and the next window that comes up is entitled "Readme-Notepad" in which information about things such as installation but when I close that window nothing else happens, it goes back to my desktop. I'm using Windows Me. I downloaded a driver for the same printer for my laptop which has Windows XP and it installs without any problem. All steps for adding a printer were followed. Version3.97 is for Windows 3.1, 95, 98, and Me. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello.

I have a Canon MF8450 on my network, which used to scan documents and store them on the local server using SMB. It suddenly stopped working, the Canon device can't find the SMB server. I suspect Windows update/autoconfiguration change might be at fault, but I am not sure.

I have tried doing this :

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2696547

disabling SMBv2, SMBv3, enabling SMBv1, and the same with v2, but with no success.

The server is running Windows Server 2008 R2.
I have captured packets from/to the Canon, when it's trying to find the SMB share, maybe that could help. Canon IP is 192.168.1.30 and the server IP is 192.168.1.3 : Dropbox link

How could I make SMB work again?

I don't know where to post this, but Canon printer(s) don't work with Comodo Firewall. And this is for a fact. My printer wasn't working on my laptop but when I took it to a friend's laptop, it worked. I came back and uninstalled Comodo and it worked perfectly. The printer didn't work by just simply closing Comodo either!
And I say printer(s) because I don't know if it applies to all printers but at least the MP series.

So yeah, just a heads up to anyone with Comodo and a Canon printer installed.

I just upgraded my home network to a wireless system. I'm running XP Pro on the computer hardwired to the Canon Multipass F50. My laptop is running XP Home and networked via wireless. All aspects of the network operate perfectly, file sharing, internet access, etc. The add printer function allows me to find the canon over the network, I have the driver installed (because I've been using the printer in a networked (shared) mode prior to going with the wireless router. Now when I attempt to print I get an error message that states: "Failed to open printer" Canon's website simply states that there are no drivers for XP to allow for sharing this printer.

Wonderful!! Anyone have a workaround? It used to share until I went wireless.
Dan.

A:XP printer driver for canon multipass f50

It almost sounds like there's a permission problem with using the printer with the laptop. Try going to the printer properties on the machine that the printer's connected to. Go to the Security tab and make sure that your laptop login computer name is there and all of the permissions in the ACL list are checked. You could also try going to Network Neighborhood, go to the computer that has the printer connected and try to connect to the printer through there.

I bought this printer for a buck at a garage sale. They claimed it worked, but had no ink. I paid around twelve dollars for the ink cartridges on ebay, but forgot to check first to see if Canon had a driver for xp. They don't. However, when I go to microsoft's printer support page, I find that printer listed as one that there are drivers for in xp. http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=293360

The question is--should I assume Microsoft is correct, or assume that my printer won't work and just get rid of it?

A:windows update doesn't work

Hello

This is a problem with very, very many possible causes. We must start at the most common, and keep persevering until we hit upon the one which applies to your computer. Please stick with me.

People will look online and find simple solutions for you (such as the Windows Update reboot registry key). Whilst this is a cause, it isn't a *likely* cause. Please understand that I have not unintentionally overlooked it, but we are better off starting with more common, but more advanced solutions.

Most common solution to this problem: transactional logfile corruption (don't worry, you don't need to understand that )

So, please start an Elevated Command Prompt: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/windows-elevated-command-prompt/

and copy and paste in the following:fsutil resource setautoreset true %systemdrive%\
attrib -r -s -h %SystemRoot%\System32\Config\TxR\*
del %SystemRoot%\System32\Config\TxR\*
attrib -r -s -h %SystemRoot%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine\*
del %SystemRoot%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine\*.tm*
del %SystemRoot%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine\*.blf
del %SystemRoot%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine\*.regtrans-ms
and press enter after the final line if necessary.
If you are asked if you are sure, type Y and press enter.
You may get some errors on some of these lines. Please just ignore them (they are normal), and let me know whether this resolves your problem.

Thank you!

Richard

I already performed a clean reinstall in the hopes of fixing this problem but to no avail.

So my issue is when I open Windows Update and click on the check for updates button it does one of two things. It either just flashes to the checking for updates loading screen and then returns to normal, or gives me an error stating that the Windows Update service is not running despite it really being up.

I have tried the Windows Fixits and many other solutions such as deleting certain folders and restarting the service but none have worked so far.

Depending on your connection speed, this might take a minute. During this time, you may receive one or more security warnings. Review each security warning to ensure that the content is signed by Microsoft, and then click Install or Yes to install the software."

But nothing happens. On the left side of the window, the Install Updates, View Installation History, & Restore Hidden updates is greyed out.

That's normal if you have a dial-up connection (like me), as it does actually take about 30 seconds and then the page refreshes by itself, but 30 sec. is max for that page...
During that time you will not see anything happening (no progress bars, or hourglass) or anything, but if you're running SP2, you may get a Windows Update ActiveX download warning which you should allow...

NOTE: If it gets stuck there,
1. Try deleting your temporary internet files..
2. Setting your Internet Zone security level at Medium..
4. Accept all cookies from Microsoft.com

Hi guys,
Well I've had my computer for like the past, 1 year or so.
Just like a few months ago, during August, there was a popup at the taskbar saying that windows can't download the update or something like that.
So, yesterday, I used the Operating System disc that I got when I first got my (gateway) computer, and reset everything. But, it still doesn't work!! I can't even download itunes anymore. I keep pressing the "Try again" button, and it doesn't work. The error code I get is "Code 8007000B".

A:Windows update doesn't work! :(

Using 'Windows Help & Support' feature

Windows Update error 8007000b

If you receive error 8007000b when you try to install Windows Vista updates, the Windows file system transaction log has become corrupted. The transaction log is used by the Windows file system to recover when a file error occurs. To correct this update error, you need to clear the log. Here's how:

To clear the file system transaction log
Click the Start button . In the Search box, type Command Prompt, and then, in the list of results, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.

In the command prompt window, type fsutil resource setautoreset true C:\. (This assumes that C: is the drive in which Windows Vista is installed. If Windows is installed on another drive, change the drive letter accordingly.)

If the problem persists after you have followed the steps above, go to the Windows Update Support Center website to try to find more information about the error code or to request support by e-mail.

Hi have Windows XP 64 bit installed and am trying to update the system. When I goto windows update I receive the following error:

[Error number: 0x8009200D]
The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem.

There were a few fixes I tried, but none worked.
The first one:

regsvr32 softpub.dll
regsvr32 mssip32.dll
regsvr32 initpki.dll
regsvr32 wintrust.dll

Second one involved disabling cryptsvc, renaming the catroot2 folder an reenabling cryptsvc.

None worked.. anyone have any ideas?

A:Windows Update Doesn't Work

So I was finally able to update once... After a reboot it worked allowing me to actually load the windowsupdate site. I downloaded the 6 or so patches it had available for xp64 pro and then rebooted to install.

When I booted up again afterwards it did not work, giving me the above errors again. Weird! Anyway, eventually it again worked again (It seemed random, I didnt do anything different that I could tell)

But this time, it said there were no updates to download. So my question is now, Is there a Service Pack 2 update for Wnidows XP Pro 64bit? If so it does not show up on the list.. if there isin't... is the 64bit version vulnerable or does it have those upgrades built in elsewhere?

Anyone here familar with the 64bit xp pro?

p.s. Oh yea, it has now stopped letting me onto windowsupdate again. Showing those above errors... anyone have an idea on those either? Heh I'm stumped.

I had a virus last week. I don't remember the name but it was one that loaded a .exe file with different names every time I connected to the internet. The files where something like 51xjhijm.exe or something like that. The number always changed.

Well I ran different antivirus until I get it clean. It seems to worked out.

Then every time my computer started the svchost.exe in the system went up to 100% usage of CPU for a while. I read that if I took the wuauserv from the svchost path and put separate will help to fix this. It did, but now my Automatic Updates don't work.

I have Windows Vista SP2 32bit. Bought a new printer on the weekend but haven't been able to download the scanner driver. The printer works fine except when I click on the scanner button from the Canon software it says something like "no scanner driver is installed for this software". I've talked to Canon but after 3-4 hours of trying, they say that it's the OS and not the CD software. Something to do with USB port conflict. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Gord

W8 Release Preview 64 bit found my USB connected Canon Pixma iP5000 printer, but didn't install a driver. WU says there is an update available, but that will not install. Error is WindowsUpdate_80070BC8, which doesn't help much. I haven't been able to find a 64 bit driver on any of the Canon sites, but I have found an XP 64 driver, on another site.

Checking properties for this printer in Devices & Printers throws up the following event:?
Driver Management concluded the process to install driver prnca00m.inf_amd64_26559657092dd606\prnca00m.inf for Device Instance ID USBPRINT\CANONIP5000\7&8F48641&3&USB005 with the following status: 0xBC8.

This status code is listed as ERROR_CORE_DRIVER_PACKAGE_NOT_FOUND

Attempting to update the driver from the printer properties finds a couple of drivers, but they also fail to find a core driver package. Add printer wizard finds a compatible driver on my machine, but that also fails for the same reason.

This printer is installed OK on my W7 installation on the same machine.

The 64 bit XP driver installed OK on this W8 RP installation, and printed a file OK, but attempting to upgrade results in the same error. After installing this XP driver, WU reported that the update installed, but Update History shows 'Failed'. Now WU isn't offering the update.

If your computer supports virtualization, use Windows XP mode. Even though my machine runs Windows 7 64-bit, XP mode is a 32-bit "machine" which is compatible with the printer.

I called Canon and was told to Google it. Nice support!

Anyway, printing works fine. I haven't figured out scanning yet, but hopefully will soon...

I have Canon S900 inkjet installed on an XP PC on my win 7 homegroup. Works fine from the XP PC. The Win 7 PC sees the S900 and asks for driver.

A:Canon S900 printer driver installation on Win 7

That other thread described my issues trying to get the x86 drivers for a Canon S800 installed as the second driver on an x64 Win7 machine. The S800 was USB-connected to the Win7 machine and was supported out-of-the-box by Win7. However the required x86 drivers were seemingly unavailable from Canon.

I was trying to add the x86 drivers as a second driver for the printer on x64 Win7 so that the x86 WinXP machine (which was also on the home LAN) could print on the S800 hosted by the x64 Win7 machine.

After quite a struggle, I solved the problem. It actually involved THREE separate driver(INF) files and folders. Two of them were on the Win7 installation DVDs, but the third one (which was the primary starting point) apparently didn't make it to Microsoft in time for the Win7 installation DVD production. so this crucial first of three drivers was only available from the Microsoft Updates Catalog site.

So the three needed x86 versions of the three x64 drivers that had been automatically installed in x64 Win7 were my target. Again, two of them were on the 32-bit x86 Win7 installation DVD (just as they were on the 64-bit x64 Win7 installation DVD). But again, the primary first driver was not. And that's what I got from the Microsoft Updates Catalog site.

I then used a program named WinMount to extract the two other x86 drivers from the 32-bit Win7 installation DVD which I had a copy of.

I was working on getting the Canon ImageClass 4150 machine to work on a machine with Vista installed. I downloaded the new driver and upon trying to install the installer informed me that I needed to uninstall the previous instances of "MF Drivers" in order to reinstall.

I ran a utility included in the setup zip file that is supposed to remove previous Canon drivers in the 4100 series. I removed it from Add/Remove programs and also in the Device Manager. I've searched the computer (including hidden files, etc) and can't find any previous instances of the driver. Can't figure out what else I need to install.. Any help please?

A:Driver needed for Canon LBP2900 printer

to get my lbp2900 printer working i used the following workaround
- Installed virtualbox (maybe this is also possible in virtualpc)
- started a virtual winxp image
- virtualbox has a remote usb-bridge to connect to usb-devices not recognised by the host-system, configure the bridge to the printer
- install lbp2900 driver

To print from office/photoshop without installing those in the virtual image, on the host system print to pdf (pdfcreator) and print the pdf in the virtual image.

however i still hope canon releases their x64 lbp2900 driver soon!

I just purchased a new Vista Home version computer. I started downloading old software/updates/etc. I have a Canon imageClass D680 multifunction printer/copier [Canon PC1200 /iC d600/iR1200G] with the original CD but it is not compatible with Vista.

I went to CanonUSA website and downloaded their Vista version of the driver. NOTE: I have done this numerous times and saved it to several different locations [Program file folder in both Vista and one I created in my user "Program" folder] because Vista notified me that I did not have Administrator authorization - I got on line and learned how to disable the user limitation so I could have Administrator rights.

I have restarted my computer in both my personal user account and Administrator account over a dozen time in order to bring up the new hardware notification window and driver wizard. Since the cd version did not work, it prompts me to browse, I click on the corresponding folder, and then I get the same message EVERY time . . .

[paraphrased] "windows cannot locate the driver for the hardware, contact the manufacturer to get the driver."

You guys out there are more tech savvy then me - please help. I do not want to trash this printer/copier - it works great (it worked fine with my old XP machine just a week or two ago).

Is Vista that bad? (All my Canon printers and cameras have been great).

I have a Canon MP190 printer. I was having issues with weird messages every time I tried to print something. I figured I may need a driver update. So I went to Canon's site and downloaded the latest driver for my printer. I deleted the prior driver per instructions. The current driver just won't install. I followed the directions, but it fails to either find or install the updated driver.

I get a pop-up telling me Windows is searching Windows update for the driver. Problem here is the driver I downloaded from Canon has nothing to do with Windows update. I have Windows update shut off. So it is looking for the driver in the wrong place.

I tried to manually picking the driver out of various places on my computer, but I don't see it?
When I type MP190 in the start search box I find/see the downloaded driver location. If I double-click it-it unzips the WinZip Self-Extractor download. Then I get a welcome to the MP drivers setup program, I disconnect the printer cable from my laptop, and exited all running programs as asked.

Next I choose my place of residence--USA. Click next, accept license agreement, installs drivers. Click complete, confirm printer cable is plugged into computer, turn on printer. I get a pop-up telling me Windows needs to install driver software for your MP190 printer. Then I click "Locate and install driver software (recommended)" It starts to install and the driver icon spins like it is installing, but then fails to install.

Hi all,

OK ... for a few days (maybe a week) now I have had trouble with my Canon MX870 Printer/Fax. I have been using it successfully for the past 16 months now, via USB connection, installed on both my Windows 7 laptop and my Windows XP PC (I just unplug it and plug it in to whichever computer I need to print from).

For some reason, it has decided not to recognise the drivers on my laptop. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall (no go). I also deleted every instance of MX870 from the registry that it would allow me to (some it wouldn't for some reason - no access - yes I am Administrator). Reinstall again ...still no go.

The Windows 7 Updates were failing to update the Fax component which I thought was the problem, then all of a sudden it was successful ... still no printer. Now, it is unsuccessful again.

But ... I don't use the Fax component ... never have ... with no problems for 16 months.

The reinstall from the CD is successful, but when I plug in the printer, it fails. "Device driver software was not successfully installed. Please consult with your device manufacturer for assistance getting this device installed.

Thats a long story. You might of already did this. Start and go to devices and printers. Make sure the printer has a check mark in it. That will make it your default printer. With the printer hooked up to your computer and powered up reboot your computer. Lets see if Windows 7 will pick it up or sometimes it will ask if you want to install the driver. Windows 7 comes with a lot of drivers built in.

edit: I should add that I am unable to find this program to remove it - which is why I am posting.

I have already tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver and it doesn't seem to do any good.

Does anyone have any ideas please?

I have a ghost 2003 image that I took today just before doing the windows update. I could just restore the image, but am a little nervous because I have never done it before.

Hi,

You'll be glad to know I stopped being a WUSS, and restored the Ghost image I made this morning. It was nerve wracking but went well. I'm posting here after all.

Beat my head against the wall so decided to post because I finally have it working.
My setup:
Machine 1: Windows 7 64 bit
Machine 2: Windows Home Server WHS (or in your case any 32 bit Windows OS) with Canon Pixma MP780 printer

Problem:
Can't install 64 bit drivers on machine 2 (under additional drivers) such that machines on the network can connect to this shared printer.
Canon only provides 64 bit drivers for fax and scanner and not printer on their website because the assumption is that a native driver is built into Win7 (64bit), which it is. The problem is that canon on both machines refers to this printer as two different names in the .inf file.

On the 32 bit side, it's called: "Canon MP780 Series Printer"
On the 64 bit native driver (that windows provides), it's called: "Canon Inkjet MP780 Series"

So, when I tried to connect to the network'd printer, it tried to look for it locally, on windows update and times out and fails (looking for the wrong name and therefore a mismatch).

Btw, I tried creating a local port on the 64 bit machine and gave it a UNC path to my WHS which works but after a reboot it doesn't so that's not "non techie" friendly and a pain in the neck.

Here's what I did:
Look for the driver under c:\windows\system32\driverstore\filerepository\<for your printer>.

In my case, for the Pixma MP780, it was : prnca00l.inf_amd64_neutral_4049bfb7d4c077ab

In this folder, the file was: prnca001.inf (setup info... Read more

New Acer Aspire, but I pitched the box, so can't return it. Anyway, It initially worked fine for about a week, including Windows Update. Got to a point where every window would say (Not Responding) and resources were maxed out. I couldn't isolate the problem and didn't have any valuable info on the laptop yet. So I did a complete System Restore back to OEM spec.
I tether to my cellphone for internet. So I installed drivers and Access Manager for that. I go into Windows Update and click to check for updates. It runs for about 20 seconds then disconnects from the internet and pops up an error code. I've gone through all the steps that can be run down there.
SP1 is not installed yet.

I've scoured the internet for answers, but wireless problems are so vast that I can't pinpoint the answer to my problem. This is what happened:

1. Internet and computer working fine as usual.
2. Windows Updater offered to update with Service Pack 1
3. I confirmed
4. After the computer restarted, I tried to go about my business.
5. NO INTERNET CONNECTION.
6. Uninstalled the Service Pack, restarted. Still no connection.

Other Symptoms (I watch House too much):

-Opening Dell Wireless WLAN Card utility spurs the following message: "The Wireless Network Adapter could not be accessed. This application may have diminished functionality as a result".
- Dell Wireless WLAN card Utility says: Radio Disabled
-Radio Configuration/Dell Quickset WiFi Catcher says:Switch: Status Enabled

So somehow this service pack did something that disabled/messed up my wireless -- and now I don't know what to do! I am running Windows Home Vista Premium, and am using an B/G/N Draft wireless chip from Broadcom/Dell.

First, I feel like I'm so close (after many hours of struggling) to getting my system back but just one more major problem...Windows Update doesn't work. I need some expert advice.

Second, sorry for the long, upcoming explanation but I think it is necessary to get meanful advice. Please be generous and read my story if you possibly can help.

How it started: I have a Dell XPS Studio MT 435 with a two HDD RAID0 system. It has three partitions: 1) C: System, 2) D: Recovery 3) Unnnamed. It shipped with Vista Home and I upgrade to Win 7 Home. HDD1 was causing errors...the RAID0 was dying. I was getting many BSODs.

I bought Acronis True Image Home 2012. I was NOT able to clone the entire disk as an image because of the BSODs. I was able to backup (sector by sector) the C: and D: partitions. I did not backup the unnamed partition.

I was also able to have Win 7 backup save off the C: partition.

I then replaced to the two hard drives (WD 640 GB) with two new hard drives (Seagate Momentus XT 750 GB) and reestablished the RAID0 with these new drives.

First I used the Win 7 recovery CD and its backup to restore the C: partition. The restore was successful but it wouldn't boot. There was no MBR. Windows didn't ask about nor put a MBR back on the system.

Next I used Acronis recovery CD and its backup to restore the C: partition. It did ask about a MBR, which I said to do. The restore was successful and when complete, it booted up to the Win 7 login. ... Read more

A:Windows Update doesn't work after C: partition restore.

1. Open Services.msc and stop the Windows Update service.
2. Open C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder and delete its contents (this will remove the cache and any history).
3. Reopen Services.msc and start the Windows Update service (the above folder structure will be recreated).
4. Now use Windows Update as normal.

I posted elsewhere earlier that when I tried to install an OKI C511 printer in Win 7 Home Premium (32 bit) it could not find a driver in Windows Update. This is puzzling since I had installed the same printer on another Win7 computer and the driver was found in update.

I've now gone into OKI's website and followed their advice about installing a plug and play printer; when I tried the first part of installing the same printer on another Win7 computer to the point where I select OKI from the list of manufacturers, it does list the C511 as one available through Windows 7. (I did not proceed beyond that as I did not want to complete the installation on that computer).

So why did not the Win 7 on which I was trying to install this printer not pick it up? And, I am never offered any Optional Updates on that computer either (although I have the "Give me recommended updates..." box checked).

I would really welcome any suggestions about these problems.

Regards

John

I am having issues with both. I have a windows 7 64 bit preinstalled. The windows update is behaving oddly. When you hit the ?Check for updates? it looks for them, then doesn?t find them most of the time, say the firewall maybe blocking it. What is odd at the same time, the windows update icon by the clock, shows it downloading updates. Just in case it is Windows firewall, how do I allow windows update through the windows firewall. Step by step instruction, I am not familiar with the newer windows firewall. I need to know the name of Windows Update executable, so I can add it to the firewall exception list.

Like I said above I have a 64 bit machine that maybe the problem. Hp claims W7 will install the default OS driver. No luck. I don?t know if the other suggestion about downloading updated driver list from windows 7 worked or not due to my issue with Windows Update.

Yes, I am still on a dial-up, so I can?t download windows 8.1 full install plus I don?t know if that will fix the issue anyway.

It then tried to open my Adobe Acrobat and I shut off the wireless connection after about 10 seconds, but it was too late, and I can no longer access Windows Update page (it just tells me IE cannot display this webpage). I also noticed that I can no longer hibernate my computer anymore. Windows Defender told me that something was trying to install and I denied permission to it. I ran Malwarebytes 1.45 with the latest updates and it found a few things which it deleted, but still can't access Windows Update. I also tried the http://safety.live.com (onecare) from microsoft and did the full system scan with that and it found 9 issues, but only fixed 2. It didn't actually tell me what those other issues were, so I couldn't manually do anything about them. Every once in a while, my expired (in Dec2009) Norton Anti-Virus will tell me I have a trojan and denies access to file "overlay.xul".

I was curious if I could install a x86 printer/scanner driver on a x64 system?

I had to install the x64 driver through Microsoft Update. When I installed the software that controls the scanner the software says no scanner detected.

The software works fine in XP and I still see driver support in x86 Vista/7.

Since I installed the printer driver through MS update there is no uninstaller. If I wanted to uninstall it, do I go to Device Manager and delete the printer driver from there? How likely would 32-bit drivers work a 64-bit system?

A:Canon MP730 Multi Function x86 x64 printer & scanner driver assistance

You can go to device manager>properties>driver tab>install driver to install it.

As far as using a 32bit driver on a 64bit system I'm pretty sure it won't work.

Have you tried using the Cannon driver installer?
They have a listing under multifunction for the Smartbase Mp730 if this is the one your referring to.

Then again it doesn't say what OS it is for.
My impression of the site is that it first has you install their down-loader which will scan your system and then provide the correct driver.

I would give this a try if you haven't already.

Hi all,

I'm installing a network printer onto windows 7, the printer is hosted from a windows xp machine.

Windows 7 detect's the printer, and then says that its looking for drivers on windows update, this might take a while. However I never see an option to browse for the drivers myself.

I've tried running the exe to install windows 7 drivers for the Canon Pixma i4500 but it says the printer is not detected, well of course it isn't its a network printer.

Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

A:Add Network printer only looks at windows update for driver

Hello,

You need to install the windows 7 drivers onto the Windows XP machine as additional drivers.

See:
Microsoft Corporation

Also, you need to make sure that the printer is shared so that the Windows 7 machine can see it. You can then add the printer via the Add Printer Wizard or browse to it and double click the printer (\\XPMACHINENAME).

The latest Windows 10 update apparently killed off the driver for my HP OfficeJet J4540 printer. When I tried to print the document, nothing showed on the window except the FAX and PDF programs which I never use.

When I went to the control panel and clicked on the printer icon, the line underneath said that the driver was unavailable. That's strange, since the printer is only four years old and it was "available" before the upgrade.

So what's up with that? Even the Driver Support program can't seem to help.

Hi guys, the answer to the question is probably yes, but i want to be sure. I'm running windows 7 64 bit sp1, and this is what happened (there will be some missing information, but pc stopped working in middle of night and I was a little in panic, so I may have forgot something.) Note: My OS is in Italian, so the system messagges are not exactly the same of an english version because I'm traslating them.

The short version is: Realtime protection of antivirus doesn't works (tried both with avast and then avira, reinstalling/cleaning doesn't works), windows update doesn't work, and microsoft fixit can't fix it :D. I don't know if there is a problem with admin rights or something like this (the first error i got was from dropbox that couldn't obtain admin rights) or it is a malware.

Since latest Win 7 update, I have a problem with HP Photosmart D7460 printer which is directly connected via usb to computer. Document goes into print queue, prints for a couple seconds, then stops. Document then disappears from the print queue.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling a freshly downloaded driver with updates and replacing usb cable. Restarted spooler service. Printer prints fine if I try to print from a media card plugged directly into the printer, and it prints fine when connected to a Mac.

It is an issue with documents from several applications, text or pictures. Has anyone else noticed issues with hp drivers since the most recent update of Win7?

A:HP Photosmart Driver does not work with latest Windows Update

What if you delete your printer from devices and printers, unplug printer, reboot pc, reinstall usb printer in different usb port?
