Network Printer Driver Not Found

I have installed and tested a dell p1500 laser print as a local printer. When i attempt to install the same device as a network printer, the printer is found via the network, but the drivers can not be located. If i could locate where that driver was installed for the local installation, would it also work for the network installation?If so, where do i locate the drivers for the locally installed devices?

Epson Stylus C60 Printer Driver Not Found

I have a shared printer (epson stylus c60) on a windows xp desktop. When trying to install the printer on a network laptop using windows 7, i get a driver not found on network message. There are no printer drivers available from epson. Their web site states that says to use the "built-in windows 7 driver". That driver does work on the laptop when the printer is connected to it directly. But when on the network, it comes up with an error message that says the "driver cannot be found on the network".

Sxuptp Driver File Not Found

I have updated my hp laptop from windows vista to windows 7 recently. Ever since the change, i keep getting the message "sxuptp driver file not found" when the computer starts up. I have no idea what that driver is attached to. After researching online, i saw that it is supposed to relate to belkin usb hubs, but i don't use any. I still tried to download the sxuptp driver 3. 1. 5. 0, but then it just says that i don't have the latest driver and it installs this whole program to control usb hubs that i don't want on my computer. Can anyone help?

Wacom Driver Not Found On Startup

I installed a wacom intuos 3 tablet on my sony vaio using the updated windows 7 drivers, which initially worked. But when i started my laptop the next time, it said that no driver was found. I re-installed the driver, which allowed it to work but only until i had to start my computer again. Recently i  discovered that sometimes could reconnect it through the tablet preference file utility from a backup of the preferences.

Today, i could not reconnect it despite re-installing the driver or restoring tablet preferences. Is this common? Can the why windows 7 is designed interfering with how it finds drivers on the hard drive? Any help is appreciated.

Bluetooth Peripheral Device - No Driver Found

I've bought an usb bluetooth yesterday. I plugged it in usb and windows installed all drivers just fine. However, it downloaded some driver from windows update. But my problem is, when i'm trying to add my mobile phone it tries to install many drivers. Windows is able to install all drivers except one. It says bluetooth peripheral device - no driver found. I went to shop and i changed the usb bluetooth and got another one. Same thing with new one. It doesn't find a driver. The bluetooth is useless now, i cannot do anything with it. Also i've tried the bluetooth in my other pc but exact same thing. Currently i'm on windows 7 ultimate 64-bit, but my other pc has windows 7 ultimate 32-bit.

I've tried windows update myself and there was a driver which is 15 kb, i've installed it but no chance. Same thing happening. Driver date is 2008, too old and not for windows 7 i bet. What i have to do now? Please do not say change the bluetooth, because i'm not able to find any other brands. Here is only two brands. And one more thing, i've spent much time yesterday searching my problem in microsoft answers and web and i've tried all ways i've seen, but none of them worked. M i not able to run this device as vista? Something like that? There should be a way please give me some solutions. I really need it.

Bluetooth Peripheral Device Driver Not Found

I upgraded from windows vista to windows 7 home premium. I was able to connect my blackberry storm just fine when i had vista. Now when i try to connect my phone via bluetooth i get a bluetooth peripheral device not found. I have tried everything. I have checked for updates on windows, bluetooth manufacture, and hp and i cannot find any update. I have went to the device manager and right clicked the peripheral driver and tried to update it over the internet and manually. I tried to troubleshoot and run it with a older version of windows, since it worked then, but when it asks me to select which program i would like to run on an older version of windows, i cannot find the drive. Does anyone have any ideas or a way to fix this?

Error - Windows Installation Cannot Continue - Required Driver Not Found

"windows installation cannot continue because a required driver could not be found" error when installing windows 7 ultimate over windows vista home premium 64-bit. No additional information is given, so i have no idea what to do. I am on the bizspark program and i am trying to upgrade from windows vista home premium 64-bit to windows 7 ultimate 64-bit.

Simpletech Pininfarina External Hard Drive Driver Not Found

I have a 500 gb simpletech pininfarina external hard drive, the product number on the back says bom no: 96300-41001-013. I just bought a new laptop with windows 7 and the laptop doesn't detect the hard drive. It says the driver could not be installed and i should try downloading the driver from the manufacturers website. The manufacturers website does not have the driver on there and i have a lot of my sensitive data stored on this external hard drive. Is there any way i can find the driver elsewhere? If someone has the driver or knows of a public forum where this driver is downloadable then please respond to my post.

Network Printer

Trying to set up a network printer and having problems. Printer is hp photosmart c5200 hooked up to pc running windows 7. It works fine on that computer. I have a laptop running windows vista that i would like to get to share the printer. Laptop is obviously wireless. Did have the same set up working on a pc running windows xp with no problems. I have the sharing tabs set on both pc and a homegroup set up on pc ( workgroup on laptop ).

Can access pc from laptop, but when i go to discover printer it is not showing up. Can access pc and navigate to folder showing printer. Have tried to manually add printer to laptop, but will not print. Did notice that laptop and pc are in different workgroups in laptop network set up, but can't figure out how to delete one and put them in same workgroup. Any help is appreciated

Network Printer Not Working

I'm having trouble getting windows 7 pro (64 bit) talking to a network printer. The printer (samsung clp660) is connected directly to the network (via ethernet cable). I have downloaded the correct drivers from the samsung website which just happens to be the same for all versions of windows and after running the setup and using the samsung software to setup the printer as a network printer, which sees the printer on the network and appears to install perfectly.

However, this is where the problem starts. First the printer was showing as 'offline' so i disabled snmp on the tcp/ip port that this printer was using which fixed the 'offline' problem. When i try to print a test page it does not print giving an error in the print queue. When i run the troubleshooting wizard it says that windows is not communicating with printer and is unable to rectify the problem. I have also successfully managed to ping the printer from the offending windows 7 workstation.

I have successfully installed the same network printer on 2 other xp pro workstations using the same setup package.

Printing On Network Printer

I upgraded 2 desktop pcs from vista to win 7. Each pc has its own printer directly attached. Prior to upgrading, both pcs could print to either printer. After upgrading, one pc can print to both but the other can print only the printer directly attached however, the printer on the other machine is visible when checking devices on the network. I have gone through checking network names, sharing, reinstalling drivers, deleting and reinstalling the printer with no success. I've even attempted to establish a "home group" but am unable to do so. Any suggestions?

Network Printer Cannot Connect

Its for my homegroup network with both computers running windows 7 (pc is on 64bit and laptop is on 32bot). I can print from the pc where the printer (epson) is connected via usb but i can't print from my laptop through the network. The homegroup works fine enough, i can access files through it. I thought originally it was pharos that was upsetting the computer (installed very very poorly and finally days later managed to get every sign of it off the laptop) - but now i get the printer being found but it won't connect!

I've been though a couple of other threads but none of it seems to work. The file and printer sharing has always been connected (as my brother from his xp computer can print to my printer) and the firewall lets it through. Is there any other way? The permissions are set to print for everyone so its not that either. Does anyone know how i can get my laptop access to print?

Printer Not Printing Over Network

I saw a question similar to mine but not quite the same issue. My main desktop is running win7 pro and my laptops and other desktop are running win xp pro. I have set up a work network not a home network, per instructions from a friend in it. All other computers can see the printer and print jobs get spooled to the main computer. The jobs arrive but do not print. Just to clarify, i can print just fine from the main computer. I know there is a tutorial on here for this issue, but the graphics are no longer present, so it's rather difficult to check what the settings should be.

Network Printer Not Recognized

I am running windows 7 pro on a laptop connected to a network server utilizing windows 2000 server. When i try to add a network printer on the server to the laptop, the printer shows up in the add a printer wizard, but when selected, the process ends with an error message that the printer port is unknown. Incidentally, i can access the network printer if i access it on the laptop as a shared printer on another machine connected to the server running xp, but not directly off the server as i want to. Any help in getting the printer port recognized?

Error - Printer Cannot Be Contacted Over The Network

I have recently upgraded my laptop to windows 7, while the rest of my office still uses windows xp. I was able for a month or so to print to all printers, since upgrading. However, now it will allow me to print to all printers on the network except for one. The other people in the office are still able to print to that printer. What can i do?
