Win 7 Wont Recognize Usb Hp Deskjet F2280 Printer

Just today purchased a brand new sony vio laptop. Have a hp deskjet f2280 printer - which i have downloaded the drivers off the hp website (as the disk did not support windows 7) however i keep getting a message that that the 'usb device is not recognized' i have reloaded the software, run checks on the system but still nothing (the software is installed and recognized including showing print logs ques etc). The printer was working on an older computer.

Do i just need to buy a new usb printer cable or is there a cheapersolution to an already expensive day!?

Hp Deskjet 9800 Printer Errors

Error messages-some postscript specific settings(interpolation, calibration, encoding) will be ignored since you are printing to a non post script printer. -Result print of 1/2 inch of 4 by 6 print, print about 25% of specified size, no print etc.

On hp932 and hp deskjet 9800. Error message, incompatible ink cartridges- even though using original hp60 cartridges supplied with printer at purchase and they worked for maybe 40 pages printing text only. Hp9800 and hp932 printers, hp scanjet 4470 all worked perfectly well on old windowsme- i know they're old, but are there no fixes for these issues for acomputer user without great technical knowledge. Or is the cure the dumpster for all my old peripherals?

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.

Win 7 Does Not Recognize Usb Drive & Ipod

This has been really bothering me. Windows 7 works perfectly with my old programs after my upgrade. Only when i plug in my usb external drive and ipod touch, ipod video. It does not recognize it. I tried device manager and looking for it there, it does not show up. When i go on safe mode, "usb mass storage" shows up but i cannot update cuz it keeps saying it already has the best driver installed. When i look at "properties" it says there is no driver installed.

With my ipods, i tried stopping and restarting ipod service, apple mobile device, itunes. I tried reinstalling a newly downloaded copy of itunes at least 4 times. That does not work.

There is a registry fix for this on windows xp titled "windows xp cannot detect a usb flash drive, an apple ipod, or an external hard disk drive" but does not have one for windows 7. The xp fix even has a download fix for fixing the registry. Is there one also for windows 7. I am going through the trouble of installing virtual pc and xp mode just to use my devices.

Win 7 Does Not Recognize Belkin Usb Adapter

I performed a registry cleanup on my computer last monday using norton 360 with mixed results. The major problem i'm having is that i can't seem to connect to my belkin wireless usb adapter anymore.
I did a system restore, and an uninstall/re-install of the latest belkin driver software. The adapter does manage to connect on occasion, but returns to its inoperable state if i put the computer to sleep or try to do a reboot.

If i try a clean install, w7typically tries to connect to the adapter but then it either says that the device isn't recognized or says there is no device at all. When i run a diagnostic, w7 recognizes the problem but it figures that i'm trying to connect through my ethernet cable and not via usb. I can't seem to make it point to the usb connection. Am i missing anything? Is there a manual fix?

Computer Cannot Recognize Usb Storage Devices

I am using a brand new hp with windows 7. The first time i plug any thumb drive or my external hard drive into any usb port my computer immediately recognizes it by name and i able to use files on it and save to it normally. When i safely remove it and come back the second time and plug it into my computer nothing happens. I go to my computer and see it is shown as "unknown device". When i use the "trouble shoot hardware devices"tells me it is not recognized and i get this message:

Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)

I have tried turning the computer off and rebooting buti still get the same message. I have used the update driver and get the message that the proper driver is installed. I have gone to the "windows7 compatability center" and my simpletech 160 gb external hard drive is listed as compatible. Please tell me what i can do to make my computer recognize and allow me to use these devices. Without being able to use them so that i can do work at home and take it back and forth to school, i really have no need for the computer in the first place !

I am able to use all my external usb storage devices on xp at school as well as on an old laptop at home with no problem. The only problem i have is windows 7 apparently. Since i have tried three different usb plug n' play devices with the same result(each of which was recognized only the first time i plugged them in)it obviously is not the fault of the storage devices.

Is anyone out there?

Win 7 Recognize Usb Gps As A Serial Mouse

Windows 7 + usb gps becomes serial mouse = bad news*i know this has been asked quite a few times on here, and a solution has yet to appear, but since it has been awhile since the last time it was posted i thought i would see if any progress has been made. Problem: plugging in a usb gps, or a serial gps connected via a serial->usb adapter causes windows 7 to improperly recognize the device as a serial mouse, and since the data stream is rapid, the mouse pointer begins to jump all over the screen.

In xp, disconnecting the gps temporarily left behind the serial mouse in device manager, and disabling it there would then allow the system to be used again. Unfortunately, in win 7 when the gps is unplugged the system immediately removes the device from device manager. Additionally, the tools microsoft had released to combat this problem on the front end have not been released for windows 7. So we have the choice, continue to hold the laptop rollout, or revert to rolling them out with xp. Neither option is ideal. Anyone have any ideas?

Usb / Firewire Combo Card Does Not Recognize External Hd

I recently installed a new usb/firewire combo pci card on a i7-920 win7 professional based computer. The usb part works fine but the firewire does not recognize external hds. Howeverexternal hds were connected to the firewire port on the motherboard, it worked fine. Changed firewire driver to legacy driver that came with win7 pro did not solve the problem. Moving the card to a different pci slot does not solve the problem.

Now under the device manager, the driver is "working properly" but the card just won't recognize the external devices. Is this a driver problem (i.e. Need a newer or win7 pro specific driver)? If it is, where to get it? Have searched internet and numerous websites (including card manufactuer) but cannot find an answer. Is this card defective?

Error - Unknown Device - Usb Does Not Recognize Garmin Device

Just recently, windows 7 home premium addition has stopped detecting my garmin device. Other usb devices such as my ipod work fine. I was able to get it to detect the garmin only a few times, it would try to install the drivers but the drivers would fail to install. The garmin was working a few weeks ago. Below is a list of everything i have already tried:

Rebooting (after everything i try)
- Turning the computer off and leaving it unplugged overnight
- Completely uninstalling all drivers and software associated with the gamin.
- Manually installing drivers
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for new hardware
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for legacy hardware (this produces a device not functioning (code 10) error)
- Reverting back to a restore point before the last windows update

Please, any help would be very appreciated. I am decently computer savvy and have always been able to fix any problems that i have. This one has had me spinning my wheels for days.

Win7 Can't Find Printer Port For Usb Printer

I have a canon pixma mp780 printer. It is a usb printer. I downloaded the latest driver, which is supposed to be specifically for windows 7. Windows installed the driver with no problems, but it is having trouble locating the printer port. I have the cable connected on both the pc and the printer. I have tried unplugging and re-plugging them both, as well as restarting the machine. The window for finding the printer port has the following message:

"Caution! Cannot detect the printer port. Check that the printer is on and that the cable is connected. If the port has not been detected even though it is connected, disconnect the cable from the printer and then reconnect it. "

I am at a loss as to what to do next. The window claims it will close once it finally detects the printer port. I have tried to plug the printer into different usb ports in hope that one of them would finally be recognized, but so far it has been to no avail. Do i need to reboot? Is there anything else i can do? I didn't have any problems when i was using windows xp, so i'm sure it is a windows 7 issue.

Hp Deskjet F2480 Problem

So i bought a new printer (hp deskjet f2480) because my old one was passed its sell-by date. I have a dell laptop that has windows 7 on it. I was very excited to use my new printer (sad i know, but the last one was driving me mad!) And i put the disk in to set it up and when it came to attaching the device up my laptop said it did not recognise the usb cable. It recognized it with my old printer though and was working fine. So why is my laptop deciding it does not like this cable? This is preventing me installing my printer properly and printing anything :( . Any help would be much appreciated, although i have troubleshooted for ages and tried the fixit thing here and also sent a message to the technical support for the printer via email. I've been trying to fix it for 2days (as soon as i bought it).

Cannot Print Deskjet 6540

I had my wireless connection to deskjet 6540 working until a windows 7 update. Now can't print. Need help with settings since the printer is directly connected to another desktop system in the network.
I'm running w/7 on my laptop. It's wirelessly connected to a network and another desktop system with a desktop 6540 attached. I had the printer working from my laptop until there was a win 7 update last week. I removed and reinstalled the printer but still can't print. All my jobs hang up in the queue and say there is an error but doesn't give details. I'm wondering if i set up the wrong port but can't remember what i did to get it to work before. This time i'll write it down.

Hp Deskjet 1000c Is Not Detected

Windows 7 professional is being used. The computer is a dell studio xps 9000. The usb cable is a sabrent "usb to parallel (printer ieee1284) cable". The printer is the hp deskjet 1000c. This computer does not have a lpt port. When the cable is attached to the computer's usb, the cable is recognized but the printer is not. I tried to print a word and an excel file and neither program could detect the printer. I also tried to use the virtual pc utility, in xp mode, with some works files and got the same results.

The windows 7 compatibility list did show this printer as being compatible. Do i need different drivers, a different cable or what?

Problem Installing Hp Deskjet F2180

I had vista home premium and an hp deskjet f2180. I upgraded to windows 7 home premium (32) but the system will not recognize my printer. I have been to the hp website and downloaded the correct drivers. It runs through the installation process but takes ages to configure then comes up with a notice saying the installation has failed. Solutions suggested by hp don't work everything just goes round and round in circles. I've carefully followed correct installation procedures. I've spent about 48 hours in this now and am shattered. My computer tells me to consult hp for installation help. The website and forums are no use.

This morning i rang them and they wouldn't help me without me agreeing to pay 15. After i went on at them a bit about their 'award winning' service which doesn't exist for free if you are out of warranty the person i spoke to came back and said the problem would be fixed if i did a 'fresh install' i.e.completely new disk of windows 7 (if i can persuade the person who installed it for me to do that). Obviously these things take time and cost money. Even then i don't know if it will work or if hp are just passing the buck by saying its a windows 7 issue. Has anyone else experienced this because i am at my wits end. I'd buy a new printer but then if7 is the problem that won't help.
