Dell Printer Error - Wsd Print Device Doesn't Have A Driver


I am trying to set up a dell v505 printer to a dell studio laptop running windows 7. I followed a knowledge base article indicating i should uninstall my dell driver and install using windows vista sp2 compatibility mode, which i have done. After doing this, i am getting the error 'wsd print device doesn't have a driver' i am unsure if this is a windows issue or dell issue so searching for answers from both. This printer connected easily to desktop running vista when set up wirelessly.

Cannot Print With Dell A920 Printer

Cannot print with my dell a920 printer now that i upgraded my dell laptop from vista 64-bit to windows 7 64-bit. I recently upgraded my dell studio laptop to windows 7 64-bit from vista 64-bit and now my dell a920 all-in-one printer doesn't work. It worked just fine with xp and with vista. The dell site says it's not compatible with windows 7. So frustrating. Please tell me windows has a solution for me and that they wouldn't leave me high and dry.

Dell Printer Wont Print On Both Sides

Dell printer won't print on both sides, and dell site only has vista drivers. I'm trying to print on both sides of my paper using a dell photo all-in-one 922 printer, but the 2-sided (duplexing) printing is greyed out. Dell's website only has drivers for windows 2000, xp and vista. I installed from the cd and updated with their update, and although the interface changed, the 2-sided option stayed greyed out. I'm also using windows 7 professional inside virtualbox.

Error - "driver Is Missing" In Device Manager For Hp Printer

Original title: driver error message on device and drivers page for hp 309a multi function printer, i keep getting an alert message on my device manager showing an error for my multi function hp 309a printer. I have reinstalled the hp solutions software, and the software when downloading recognizes the pc is running windows 7. Furthermore, the printer works perfectly using wireless connection, when i print to it from word, for example. I keep seeing a yellow triangle on my pc device manager icon which suggests the driver is missing. How can it be missing when it is working correctly?

Minolta 1250w Printer Print Driver

I have a minolta 1250w printer and it no longer works with my wife's new windows 7 64bit machine. Minolta says on their site they will not support 64 bit windows for this machine. I have two possible workarounds in mind but don't know if either will work.

The better workaround is to use the driver on the print server. The printer is shared and is connected by usb to a windows xp machine. Is there any way to print from her machine and use the print driver on the server?

The less optimal workaround is to find and application that will sweep a folder on the server and print a file. My wife could then print-to-file on the print server and the document would then print after a short delay.

My third idea for a workaround using the xp virtual machine in windows 7 won't work because her version doesn't have it. It would also require that she print from apps installed in the xp environment (not good).

Printer Problem - Print Job In Print Queue Is Preventing Other Print Jobs

Cannot print from new laptop to shared printer - "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing". I recently bought a new laptop and want to print to a printer (hp color laserjet 1600) i have shared over the network from a windows 7 (x64) machine. When i try to print from my laptop it stays in the print queue and i have to run the troubleshooter on the host computer to resolve the issue and allow it to print.

If i run the troubleshooter on the laptop it tells me it could not identify the problem while on the host it tells me "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing" and it says it fixed the problem and prints the document but i have to do this every time. I also have this printer added to a laptop and a netbook and they both print the document just fine and have no issues. The laptop i am having the problems is running windows 7 (x64).

Each time i try to install the printer on my laptop the driver cannot be found, when windows update searches it says that the driver cannot be found and when i search through the list i am able to find the 920 and 928, but not 924. I have tried installing the other drivers, to no avail, and i have tried downloading the driver from dell, but their install software will not seem to find the printer. Any help would be awesome.

Dell 962 Printer Driver For 64-bit

I am trying to download what the windows 7 site lists asthe compatible driver for a dell 962 printer on my home pc. The printer gets listed as an optional printer, and i can view the printer defaults for page size, etc. And can send docs and emails to it to print, but they fail immediately to print. Is there a step i am missing to get the printer to work for output? Using the windows update catalog, i stall and the screen which offers the option to specify location to place download. Clicking the browse button to exercise this option does nothing even if i wait several minutes.

Dell does not have a windows & driver posted on its site, and i have tried the vista 64-bit driver to see if it will work. That gets me a little further, but not completely where i want to be.

Apple Mobile Device Driver Issue With Mtp Device Driver

How do i get windows 7 to accept the 'apple mobile device driver' instead of the 'mtp device driver'? It is driving me nuts! Frequent itunes sync issues occurring. Suggestion is that windows is treating as a camera instead of ipod which makes sense given it asks me if i want to import pictures each time i connect the ipod. I need to get it to update driver from mtp to apple mobile but cannot get it to do it as it keeps saying no compatible driver in the file.

Cannot Update Usb Print Driver Without Error

I am trying to get an hp 4100 laserjet printer to work on my new windows 7 ultimate 64 bit laptop. When i plug in the printer through a usb adapter cable, windows 7 finds and loads a compatible driver hp4100 pcl6. The printer works most of the time, but i get errors when i try to print many images. According to the hp forums, the pcl6 driver has issues just like this, and they suggest using either a pcl5 or ps driver instead. I explored using add printer and found that there is a windows 7 64 compatible driver hp4100 ps available if i select to use windows update to find all the latest printer drivers.

Since i could not find any way to get windows 7 to let me select the driver (it always installs hp4100 pcl6 without asking or letting me intervene), i tried going to printer properties > advanced on the printer screen. I selected new driver, chose the hp4100 ps driver from the list, and it seemed to install it. However, as soon as i went back to printer properties, i got an error that the hp4100 ps driver is not installed and asking if i want to install it.

When i look under print server properties, the hp4100 ps driver is listed. It also appears on the printer properties > advanced screen for the driver. However, every time i select printer properties i get the error that the hp4100 ps driver is not installed. It seems to be a problem of the error message, not the driver.

The other strange thing is, if i select properties for the printer, and look at at hardware, it shows hp4100 pcl6 (the one i removed) along with usb printer services. What can i do to get windows to recognize this new driver? Or, alternately, if i delete the printer, what can i do to keep windows from reinstalling the default hp4100 pcl6 automatically when i next plug in the printer and let me select the driver i want. I could find no way to override the install.

Hp Inkjet 2230 Printer - Print Jobs Stuck In Print Queue

Print jobs stuck in the print queue and will not print on windows 7 64-bit driver for hp business inkjet 2230 printer. I have installed the current hp universal printing pcl 5 driver on my windows 7 64-bit os. When i try to print a test page on my hp business inkjet 2230 printer (usb to parallel cable connection) the job hangs in the print queue. I can run the troubleshooter and purge the spooler but then i'm back where i started. The next print command will result in the same error.

This appears to have also been a problem with windows vista (64-bit). Suggestions to remedy the problem are welcomed.

Remove Local Printer Port - Change Print Driver Associated With Port

How do i remove a local printer port, or change the print driver associated with the port. I added a local printer port machine-name-printer-name to address a printer that's attached to an xp machine on my home network. There was no driver for my printer (hp officejet v. 40 or the v series), so i tried installing it with the officejet d series. Well, the test page didn't work. I deleted the printer via control panel, but apparently the local port didn't delete. I can't add the printer again, i can't delete it, and i can't change the driver. So i'm stuck.

Error - You Need A Wia Driver To Use This Device

Xps m1530 webcam won't work, receive error "you need a wia driver to use this device. " In windows 7

*Original title - xps m1530 webcam issues*problem:webcams just dont work on this computer anymore. The internal webcam stopped working, then i tried an external, and it didnt work, and i just bought a new external webcam which is windows 7 compatible and still no luck.

Background: bought my xps m1530 with vista 32-bit almost 2 years ago and upgraded to windows 7 64-bit when it came out. My internal webcam has not worked since. When i look at the hardware details, it says everything is working ok, both for internal and external webcams, but the video just doesn't show. The microphone on the laptop works, and i think the microphone for the external webcam works so i think the products do work. I feel its a driver issue, but i have installed so many drivers and applications and nothing seems to work.

I don't see anyone else with this problem online. When i go to the control panel and look at my hardware, and double click on the internal webcam, i get this message ""you need a wia driver to use this device. Please install it from the installation cd or manufacturer's website and try again"". I just went to dell's website and reinstalled some drivers and some more, but still have the issue. Any idea what this wia driver is? I googled it, but cant find anything specific to my product.

I have contacted both dell and hp (external webcam), and dell points their fingers and hp and also says warranty void for changing os, and hp says its computers fault (and i do think it is computers fault), but none of them are really helping me solve the problem. Can anyone help me? Is there a way to run a diagnostic on the computer ?

Error - Print Driver Host For 32bit Applications Has Stopped Working

"print driver host for 32 bit applications has stopped working" error in qickbooks pro 2009 with windows 7 professional 64 bit. When i try to email an estimate from quickbooks pro 2009 (which uses the quickbooks pdf converter 3. 0 installed in the devices and printers group) i get the following error "print driver host for 32 bit applications has stopped working". Sometimes this also happens when i try to print estimates or invoices using an hp laserjet 1020. Other times i can both email the estimates and print, so the problem is not consistent.

I am using windows 7 professional 64 bit on a new hp dv8t laptop. The problem did not exist on my old windows xp pro  sp3 32 bit machine, it has only come up since i got the new computer with win 7 pro 64 bit (same quickbooks pro 2009 and same hp 1020 laserjet). I have the latest updates from quickbooks pro update, but they did not solve the problem. The problem signature below is from my latest failure to email an estimate.
