Hp 720c Driver 64-bit


I've got two of these printers that are about 10 years old, but they still print like they are brand new. Even more importantly, the black ink cartridge is size of a bar of soap, they never run out. I can see why hp stopped designing printers like the 720. The real money is selling ink cartridges. My wife has a 6000 series deskjet, which i can print from, but the black ink cartridge is a joke. It's about 1/5 the volume of the one in the 720. I'll burn through it in a weekend.

You folks all know where my question is going, right? The w7 drivers simply will not work with the 720c. Does anybody know where i can download a driver for an old hp deskjet? I don't care about color printing. I'm just looking for low cost black and white printing.

I've even tried installing a virutal pc, just so i can print to the 720c. That works, but ms flags me because i need to buy a new license for word. It seems crazy, but i need two licenses for word to run them on a single desktop if i'm running one in the virtual pc mode. I'll buy a new laserjet before i do that.

Yes, the hp 720c is as old as dirt, but it will print 1, 000, 000 pages with a single ink cartridge. One of you driver gurus has got to know about a fix. Please!

Hp Deskjet 720c Network Printer Problem

I have two computers both running windows 7. One is running the 32-bit version and that one is connected directly to the printer (hp deskjet 720). My other computer is running the 64-bit version and is wireless. Whenever i try to print anything from the wireless computer, it gets stuck in the queue at the spooling stage. When i troubleshoot it it says that it can't contact the printer over the network. I've done everything i can think of. All the sharing options are set to share with the homegroup/network but it still doesn't work. Any help would be appreciated.

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.

Intel D955xbk Sound Driver For 64-bit

Ive recently re-installed windows 7 64-bit on my home computer which i use as a media center. Im having a problem with the drivers from intels site for the on-board sound for the d955xbk motherboard. I have to use the vista 64-bit driver and then specifically add the driver via the device drivers update section. The problem is that this all works fine until i exit media center then try and reload it. It hangs on a black blank screen as if media center is trying to process something but it never does.

When i try to force a shut down it then hangs on playing windows shut down sound. It seems the sound driver is reverting back to an old installed driver each time i shut media center down. So i have to go into device manger uninstall the present driver (ticking the completely remove the driver) then go through the install as above for the vista 64-bit driver. This is all getting a pain unistalled the sound driver all the time. Any help people or do i need to face that my motherboard is not supported by windows 7 64-bit drivers?

Inspiron 1720 & 1521 Driver Win7 64-bit

I have a dell inspiron 1720 and a dell inspiron 1521. Recently, i did fresh installs of windows 7 64-bit os to upgrade from vista. I am glad i did, but since installing windows 7, i am unable to disable the touchpad when an external mouse is connected to the pcs. When i open the mouse dialog box from the control panel, it doesn't show a tab for the touchpad.

I contacted dell support and after spending over 90 minutes with them through a chat session, they told me that there aren't any drivers available for these laptops for windows 7. This is driving my mom nuts since her cursor goes all over the place because she accidentally touches the touchpad. She uses an external mouse exclusively.

I tried the windows 7 64-bit touchpad driver (r230731) for the inspiron 1750. That made the dell touchpad tab appear on the mouse dialog box, but when i click on the external mouse setting link it takes me back to the main mouse dialog box so it doesn't work. Does anyone know of a touchpad driver that would work for inspiron 1720 and inspiron 1521 running windows 7 64-bit?

Cd/dvd Driver Issues - Win7 64-bit Pro Install

Cd/dvd driver issues in the beginning of windows 7 64-bit pro install. Installer will not let me move on until i find a driver for my dvd drive. The only drivers i can get to show up on the list are 64-bit drivers.

I'm upgrading from 32-bit so it won't let me use my vista cdrom drivers.
I have a sony optiarc rw ad-7170s firmware 1. 03 dvd drive
I created the bootable iso myself because of the issue with the digitalriver install
I burned the iso on 2 discs at 2 differnt speeds, didn't fix it.
Dvd is plugged into a sataraid pci card.

I'm almost sure it'll let me through if i can get my hands on the basic 64-bit cdrom drivers. I can't even find them online though.

Traversing from windows xp 32bit to windows 7 32bit my ati radeon 7200 video board went from 1280x1024 to 1024x768.

Win 7 64-bit Doesn't Distinguish Between Ie8 64-bit And Ie8 32-bit

Windows 7 64bit doesn't distinguish between ie8 64 bit and ie8 32 bit when attempting to set a default browser using the control panel default programs 'associate' utility. My new windows 7 64 bit pc (luv that i7 920 intel cpu) came installed with both ie8-64 bit and ie8-32 bit (nothing more need be said regarding the absurdity of having to deal with this in the first place - i should have gone with the imac).

Anyway, ie64 bit lacks the flash player cuz adobe hasn't released a 64 bit version yet, per their website. So i can't use ie64 with xm online music stream (et al). Ie32, on the other hand, supports flash player, but won't successfully link to various embedded hypertext links, such as those embedded in an email. My initial solution was to use firefox, which served me well until an application from a local vendor will only work with internet explorer. Sigh.

I've used windows since version 2 back in the 1980s, have become stoic, and can emotionally cope with having to use 3 browsers to get the job done.

However, just for fun, my current burning question is, with two different versions of ie8 (64 bit and 32 bit) installed into windows 7, why doesn't the control panel default applications utility seem to aware of the fact that there are indeed two different versions installed? It lists firefox and internet explorer, but does not differentiate between the two flavors of ie. My goal was to set ie8 64 bit as the default browser temporarily to accommodate the vendor's application.

Fyi, by setting the default, i refer to: control panel | default programs | associate a file type or protocol with a program. Then scroll down to 'http' and click on the change program button. So in my case, firefox and only one instance of internet explorer, with no bit distinction, display as selection options.

Xp Mode Is 64-bit Or 32-bit In Win 7 64-bit

I am planning on purchasing win 7 pro & installing the 64-bit version. I intend to make use of the "xp mode" feature if i can install 32-bit printer drivers within the xp mode, as my photo printers have no 64-bit drivers. I currently edit my photography on a win xp pro 64-bit pc, which is networked to a win xp pro 32-bitpc in order to print images. I need to know if "xp mode" is 32-bit - even when installed with the 64-bit version of win 7 pro. I want to be able to convert/edit my photos in win 7 64-bit, then print these images using "xp mode" via the 32-bit driversi intend to installin xp mode- all from the same pc. Is this do-able?

Ati Radeon Sapphire 5770 - Win 7 64-bit Asks For 32-bit Drivers

I have windows 7 64 bit. I recently changed my video card for an ati radeon sapphire 5770. I had an nvidia before that stopped working. I installed the lastest drivers from ati for win7 64 bit (version 10. 5) after uninstalling those from nvidia. Everything seems to be working fine, but windows keep telling me that there's no drivers installed for my card, even tho i can access the catalyst control center. When i click on the link that windows provide, it always lead to the 32 bit version of win 7. Is it a known problem? Is there something i can do to correct that?

Multi-boot System Win 7 64-bit & Vista 32-bit On One Hard Drive

Multi-boot system windows 7 (64-bit) & vista (32-bit) on one hard drive - do i need two hard drives?I have an existing windows vista ultimate (32-bit) system installed on a 500gb sata hard drive, partitioned into 2 partitions (c: and d:). I would like to make the system multi-boot so that i can back-track to vista if i have a problem with win7.

One issue here is that i plan on multi-booting vista 32-bit and win7 64-bit on the same hard drive without touching the d: partition of the hard drive. I don't know if this is possible, but i'm interested to see if it is.

I've done some research and have found that win7 has many compatibility modes, so maybe i don't need to worry about keeping an installation of vista on my system? I just don't want to be "caught with my pants down" if something were to go wrong with win7, like if one of my programs was incompatible or something along those lines.

If i can't multi-boot vista 32-bit and win7 64-bit from the same hard drive, can i do it with 2 hard drives having one os on each hard drive? Or, am i being much too paranoid about this and should i trust microsoft on this one that win7 will not have any large compatibility issues with my most used programs?

For reference, here are some of my most used programs: firefox 3. 5, steam, adobe photoshop (versions 7. 0 and cs3), ie tester (for web development), winamp, trillian (an im and irc program), itunes, skype, mozilla thunderbird (for e-mail), and fraps (in-game video recording software).

I know that this is a lot all at once, but does anyone see any foreseen compatibility issues with any of these programs and win7 64-bit ? I'm also worried about the compatibility of some of my drivers with win7 64-bit, but i've heard that there have been leaps and bounds made with driver compatibility on win7 64-bit (as compared to the mess it was with xp 64-bit). Is this true?

Printer Sharing - 64-bit Win 7 And 32-bit Xp In Remote Desktop Session

Printer sharing - 64 bit windows 7 and 32 bit windows xp in a remote desktop session. Windows 7 machine with a local ricoh / aficio 1045 b & w multifunction printer attached. Works fine, uses 64 bit printer driver. This computer connects to a windows xp machine (32 bit) using remote desktop session (terminal services).

On the xp machine, i installed the 64 bit printer driver via printers and faxes -> server properties - drivers - add driver. I can see the driver there, successfully installed (have rebooted, etc). Despite this, the printer will still not show up when rd session is run. In event viewer, i can see there's an issue with it finding the correct driver.

I've used the terminal server printer redirection tool in the past to solve these problems (tspdrw.exe) which works great. The correct 64 bit driver is not listed as a choice when scrolling through options to reassign the driver. Hopefully that is clear, not sure what i am missing.

Xps M1210 Vista 32-bit Drivers Work For Win7 32- Bit ?

Xps m1210 with vista 32 bit- will the drivers for vista 32 bit work for windows 7 32 bit? I have had very little help from dell on this one- so far from what i have found, it sounds like the drivers for vista should work fine for windows 7, but i want to be sure before i install windows 7 on this computer and end up making it useless for days because a wireless card driver wont work or something. Can anyone tell me with certainty if the drivers will or wont work for windows 7?
