Error - No Communication With Printer - Installed Driver Not Compatible


Dell aio 922 printer driver accepted and printer set as default. Win 7 system will not print pages. Error: no communication with printer. Installed driver not compatible with windows for 32-bit system. I have a dell aio 922 printer from my prior win xp os and want to connect with my recent upgrade to win 7. Error msg states driver is not compatible with 32-bit sys. Is there a patch or upgrade to be able to use the existing dell 922 printer with the win 7 os?

Network Communication Error, Printer

I'm running win7 rc and am trying to get my hp c6380 wireless printer to work. Originally, i added the printer via the "devices and printers" window, and the correct driver was automatically downloaded and installed; however, every time i sent a print job, it cleared the computer and then seemingly disappeared. Test pages from the printer properties window also disappeared. Software that on vista recognized the scanning function do not even recognize the printer in win7. I've isolated the problem as being with wireless communication because when the printer is connected via usb everything is fine.

After i got to this point, i downloaded the driver and software suite from hp's website, deleted the printer (both the wireless and usb connection) from the devices window, and worked on manually installing the driver/software. Once i got the point where the software installer attempts to send and confirm a test page to the printer, i got a message that perhaps the firewall is blocking a port or two. I fiddled with the advanced firewall settings (which is out of my depth), then just turned the firewall off. Still no go. The installer continued to tell me that it couldn't communicate with the printer. I skipped this and finished the installation of the software, but still no go on printing.

Now, i just turned off the printer to see if the computer changed it's status (which happens in vista), and it didn't. To continue to prod, i tried to send a test page with the printer off. The test page went to the spool and sat there, never indicating that the printer was off, just waiting. When i turn the printer on, the test page job appears to finish and then never prints.

This is certainly not a do or die issue, but i'd like to make sure that my printer works (or that i can find a solution to this issue) with win7 so i feel confident in making the switch when it comes out. This is the the only essential thing that i can't get to work. Anyone got any advice or ideas?

Ati Catalyst Control Error - There Are No Compatible Drivers Installed

Ati catalyst control error "there are no compatible drivers installed" for ati radeon x1600. I have two ati radeon x1600 video cards, everytime i boot up ati catalyst control fails to start saying that there are no compatible drivers installed and if i right click and pick screen resolution and go to advanced there is no adapter and it say that everything is unavailable.

But if i go to device manager i can see that the driver is installed and up to date. There may be a chance that its only detecting one of the two card, and that the one its detecting is the secondary so that the primary is reverting to vgasave, but i still cant access either of them.

Hp C4500 Printer - No Driver Installed

I have an hp c4500 wireless printer, its installed and working fine on win7, its working a lot better than xp and i'm really happy with it now.

Here is the problem: when i go into printers and devices it says there are errors with my computer, when i press troubleshoot it tries to install the driver for the c4500 but fails, after that my c4500 no longer works and i have to uninstall the hp software and reinstall it to get the printer working again.

I guess i am getting this message as hp use some special software to the wireless printing, i thought if i installed the printer again over usb it might solve the problem, tried this and again the printer works fine but win7 still says there are no drivers installed.

You might say ignore it but i have another problem, my hp fingerprint scanner does not yet have a driver and i want to use troubleshoot once in a while to check for a new driver and the troubleshoots does not appear to give the option to skip the printer, it also bugs me to have a message saying there is a fault when there is not.

Anyone help me convince win7 my printer is installed correctly?

Lexmark X7350 Printer - Enable Bidirectional Communication

Cannot get my lexmark x7350 all-in-one printer to work with windows 7 even after getting the drivers and my computer states "enable bidirectional communication". I went to the lexmark site and got the driver update but i still get the "enable bidirectional communication" from the computer that tells me to get the correction made at printer properties. I have not been able to find the printer properties on windows 7 that will allow me to enable the bidirectional communication.

Error - Driver Is Installed That Causes Stability Problems

Usb devices not recognized, error received "a driver is installed that causes stability problems with your system. The driver will be disabled" after windows 7 install. Usb errors, cd rom not recognized, bluetooth not recognized, device manager warnings i upgraded from windows vista, to windows seven using the upgrade so i would not have to wipe my hard drive. Once i upgraded, my external hard drives (or anything such as a wireless mouse and mp3 player) are not recognized, my cd rom is not recognized, my bluetooth and fingerprint reader are not recognized.

I have been searching for the solution to this problem with no results. I am also getting a warning that "a driver is installed that causes stability problems with my system. The driver will be disabled" i believe there is a problem with the usb, ports. If the usb ports are my main priority.

Error - Device Driver Software Was Not Successfully Installed

Error device driver software was not successfully installed. This device cannot start (code 10) for cddvd drive. I am running windows 7 on a hp pavilion a1600n and sometime over the last month the dvd/cd drive stopped recognizing dvd and cds. It is opening and closing and spinning the disk when i put them in the drive, just not recognizing anything beyond that.

The device status reads this device cannot start (code10). From what i could find online code 10 was a hardware general purpose error. I have tried switching out for another dvd/cd drive and even switched out the cable inside to see if that was the error, it was not.

When i plugged the second dvd/cd drive in it tried to locate the drivers online and and informed me that device driver software was not successfully installed. I have been trying to find some sort of solution online to no avail.

Dell 924 Printer Not Compatible With Win7

It says that my dell 924 printer is not compatible with windows 7. So does this mean that i either need to buy a new printer or just revert back to vista? Will they ever be compatible? Or is there something else i can do? I just upgraded to windows 7 and now my dell 924 printer won't work. I found on the website where it says that it is not compatible. Is this forever or is it just a matter of time before they will make a driver for it?

Brother Mfc-8840d Printer Not Compatible

I have just installed windows 7 (32-bit) on my father's laptop computer. When i installed the software for his brother mfc-8840d printer, windows told me the software was not compatible. Checked brother's website and indeed, the brother mfc pro suite software is not compatible with windows 7. No problem, windows still installed the scanner driver and i can scan with the unit. However, the files created are in tif format. Windows only allows for saving in a few formats, including tif. Is there a way to configure the scanning feature in windows to save as a pdf file?

Installed Printer Drivers Stacked Under One Printer Icon

If 2 printer drivers for the same printers is installed, eg a postscript and a pcl driver, both printers are stacked under the one printer icon, and you only know that two separate drivers are installed if you right click on the printer icon, and only at that point does it show that two separate printer drivers have been installed. Is there a way to unstack the two printers so they show as two separately installed printers ?

Installed Printer Missing From Printer List

Win7 home premium 64-bit. I installed an old zebra eltron printer that i use for shipping labels. Since my hp computer has no parallel ports, i had to use a buslink usb to parallel cable to get the printer installed. I found that the 64-bit vista drivers worked and the printer works as normal.

Now i need to adjust some settings on the printer, yet when i pull up the hardware/printer page, the printer is missing! It's probably hidden behind the ieee1284 controller (that is listed on the hardware page) but the printer itself is not on this page. How do i find this 'missing' printer?

Print Driver Is Not Installed

Driver doesn't work with my laserjet 2100. During the driver install, i used "windows update", it then locates the driver, and seemingly installs. Afterwards, when the printer is accessed, it errors. When i go into the printer console, it tells me ". Print driver is not installed. " I go back to device manager, and the driver is named, and seems that it is installed. Very frustrating. (I'm connecting to a printserver via wireless across to my local network to a print server). I have several other pc's running 2000, xp, and vista with no problems.

So in summary, after the driver is "installed", i get an error accessing the printer, and subsequently get an ". Driver not installed. " Error message during the troubleshooting period. Windows "troubleshooter" did not find any issues. Also, the printserver has a static ip address and i used that address in setting up the printer port. Now what?

Update Interfering With Driver Installed

New dell computer with windows 7 64 bit. Worked fine for awhile. But as i continued installing my programs and devices, at some point, the nic quit working. Indication was there was no driver installed. Tried everything - reinstall from dell disk, download new from realtec site, other fixes after discussion with dell techie. No success until i did an "upgrade reinstall" of win 7 from the disc. Fixed.

Now, same thing has happened with my kodak 5300 usb all in one printer. It was working "almost" fine - double sided wasn't working. Downloaded and installed latest driver from kodak. No fix, but at least it still worked, until yesterday. Won't print at all and, like the nic situation, indication was driver problem. Went through the same processes but everytime the installer returned "driver installation failed".

Thought i'd check windows update. There, listed under optional updates, were drivers for both the nic and the printer. (The nic update had been sitting there i guess for some time. )  I thought "great", and selected them for install. Same thing - installation failure. The windows update window provides "error code 800f020b".

I guess i can fix this by doing a reinstall of windows again - but what a pain!  Given it's happened twice in a month, i'm thinking there must be a better way!

I'm puzzled as to why the nic and printer updates appeared in updater. Maybe because when i was attempting driver installs, it automatically checks for newer files to install?  Then downloads them through updater?

Driver Software Not Successfully Installed

I have tried on numerous occasions to install a gps-pc usb interface driver supplied by memory maps in order to interface my garmin etrex h unit to download waypoints from pc to unit and vice versa
When i have done so and then plugged in my gps unit i get this error message 'driver software not successfully installed ' i then click on the troubleshoot option as instructed to do so and i get a link to download a driver software from the web name of prolific. This also fails to install successfully. In desperation i went to memory maps website and downloaded a more up to date version. This installed successfully but when i went to my digital maps programme it found my gps unit okay and then began to upload a route info from my gps unit. S it was doing so my computer crashed and a big blue screen appeared advising me of this fact and then the computer shut down
Have uploaded google chrome unistalled the driver software done a systems restore to an earlier point in time and then tried again.
