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?

Driver For Dell 924 Aio Printer

Print to printer connected vista 32 from windows 7 64, cannot find driver i have been trying to print to my dell 924 aio printer connected to my desktop running vista 32 from my laptop with windows 7. 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 Photo Aio 924 Driver Problems

I recently get windows 7 professional for use on my desktop, and have a dell photo aio 924 printer. I have tried several times to install the drivers for it, and the computer recognizes that the printer is present and ready for use. However, when i try to print something a window pops up that says that the computer is unable to communicate with the printer.
 
Is there an updated version of the driver available for windows 7?  I have been unable to find one, and the printer is not listed at the windows 7 compatibility center.

Printer Spooler

I have a lexmark all in one printer/fax, scanner that did work well with xp. I now have windows 7. The all in one is installed by disk but when i try to print the computer tells me i need to install a printer. I have contacted lexmark, a driver was installed. I still get the error. Lexmark tells me i need to contact microsoft to fix the print spooler. There are no error codes. What is this? Is it legitimate or am i getting a run around from lexmark? Why did my all in one work with xp and not win 7?

Printer Spooler Error

I have installed windows 7 rc, and while i have had no problems with anything, the printer spooler service does not seem to work. I have gone into the services menu and i started the print spooler application, but it seem to go back to stop after a restart or shut down. Even when the print spooler is on and i try to print something, the system just says that the printer is offline.

Hp Printer Spooler Dependency Error

I've just installed an hp officejet 8500 on my home network. I run windows 7 32 bit, and have downloaded the latest drivers.

When i try to print from an application like word 2007, i get "windows could not start the print spooler on local computer. Error 1068: the dependency service or group failed to start. "  Going to services and setting both the print spooler and lex bce to automatic has not effect.

For what it's worth, i previously had lexmark software installed on the computer.

Printer Problem - Print Spooler Is Not Running

Every time i go and print something in windows 7, it doesn't print and then when i try to open the printer it says "print spooler is not running". So pretty much cant print at all. However i can print in windows xp vitural mod. I've tried restarting the print spooler but everytime i go and print it shuts the print spooler down and then the print spooler restarts.

I was trying to us the microsoft fix it for the print spooler but unfortunately its only for vista and xp. Need help because i don't feel like going in windows xp mode all the time to print.

Printer Spooler Is Stopped And Cannot Install Drivers

All printers are gone, when i try to install the drivers for local or network printers it says the printer spooler is stopped and cannot install drivers. I went to the services page and started the printer spool and rebooted (tried several times) and it still has the same error.

Every few times i reboot all of the printers (local and network) will be shown in the devices and printers area but it will not permit any printing. When i reboot all of the printers will be gone again except the two local usb printers (all are vista compatible) and i am still unable to print no matter what printer or solution i have tried.

Not able to print
Printer spool not working (started but windows 7 thinks it is stopped)
Hp laserjet 3300 printer not recognized
I have rebooted several times with no lick

Printers are gone every few times computer starts then appear again but do not work either way
Downloaded all of the latest drivers and tried to install but windows 7 printer spool is not working
Called windows 7 support and was told i had to pay $299 to speak with anyone. I went out tonight and bought a $2900 macbook pro and plan on buying mac's for the entire company after another failure by microsoft.

Error - Local Printer Spooler Service Is Not Running

"local printer spooler service is not running" error; any attempt to add a local printer (usb or bluetooth) fails. I cannot add a printer (usb or bluetooth), as it always returns a printer spooler error. I've tried restarting the print spooler, and making sure that "local system account" and "allow service to interact with desktop" is selected. I've also removed all old printer drivers, restarted, checked the rpc locater is active, and tried everything else i can think of.

This worked fine in vista x64 on the same machine just yesterday, but the upgrade to windows 7 x64 seems to have broken something. The printer, an hp c5500 series, works fine on a virtual machine running the same os. (I'd rather not have to run a vm just to print, of course. ) Running rtm x64 on a dell xps m1530 that printed fine from vista just before the upgrade to win7. Suggestions?

Error Code - 1813 - Printer Spooler Problems

I have a new dell laptop and have upgraded from win 7 home prem to win 7 professional.networked (not homegroup) (wireless) successfully with my old desktop running xp and i am now trying to add the hp printer attached to the desktop to network too.

I can "see" the printer on the network map but when i double click to add get the error code 1813 message and then 1053. I've been into services. Msc and the start up is set at automatic. In the field description is "failed to read description error code 1813. Status field is "stopped" when you try to start it you get "windows could not start this service on local computer. Error code 1053 - service did not respond to start in controlled or timely manner.

In all the forum etc i've been reading the only person who seems to have fixed this reinstalled the printer spooler thingy?. He recons it was corrupted in his upgrade from vista to win 7. I have no idea how to do this.

Was able to print, etc. This morning, however, i have not printers installed. When i try to reinstall i keep getting the following:

"Windows can't open add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine. " I've restarted the system (several times). I've gone into services and restarted the spooler (several times). I gone into the "troubleshoot common problems" application several times. I continue to get the message regardless of what i do.

Printer Doesn't Print, But Job Shows Up In Spooler

The printer doesn't print, but job shows up in spooler when printing by network (lpr) - unless i restart the spooler! Same problem here. My epson d120 does have a compatible win7 driver and prints nicely via the same router configured in winxp (or 7, resp. ) Identically. In win7, no go. That is, unless i restart the spooler service/daemon under computer-manage-services manually. But not every time. When it restarts & will print correctly, epson's status window will pop up und inform about the progress.

I'm getting tired of the spooler restarting - please fix this (it works in xp)!?

Further details: win 7 rc (build 7100), updated printer drivers by clicking windows update button (added loads more, took ages). This btw also added another option under printer ports : customized/user defined (i'm using the german version, don't know the equivalent name in english). This wasn't present before the windows update procedure. It also exists in xp, though. Finding the printer via discovery of the port doesn't work - probably a upnp issue.

Will definitely not buy (though i think it's a great system/os) until this is fixed for good. Or is it, that your company doesn't like fully functional rc versions out there that users will eventually hack to get a freeby?

Don't get upset about the latter suggestion - it was just inspired by what other software vendors have been doing in the past. Not a good sort of behavior, if it ever leaks to the media/community.

Can't Open Add Printer - The Local Print Spooler Service Is Not Running

"windows can't open add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine". I am running into the same problem on an emachines et1331g.initially, i wanted to print to an older dell - found the driver was not windows 7 compatible so installed my canon px100 successfully and used it for over a month with no problems.

Then i needed to move the computer to a different desk and install a driver for an epson nx415. Using "add printer", the message says "windows can't open add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine". Restarting the machine does not resolve the problem. In control panel/admin tools/services/print spooler, the spooler is set to start automatically and will sometimes show started, sometimes not.

If i start it and then go back to devices and printers, the epson will show that it is installed and ready. But if i then try to print something, it says "before you can perform printer, you must first install a printer". If i logout and return later, i will find the spooler no longer running.
I have tried the latest 64 bit drivers from epson with no success. I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. Any ideas?

Stopping Programs From Starting

Can anyone tell me how to stop programs from starting up in windows 7? I know how to do it in vista, & microsoft support says to do it basically the same, but it does not seem to have the same options to choose as vista. Meaning: the "software explorer" does not appear when you get into the "tools" section of defender. I can't seem to bring software explorer up at all. I have tried typing it in the seach option of the start menu also. Please help. I don't want many programs slowing my computer.

Logitech Wireless Mouse Intermittently Stopping

I have a logitech v220 wireless mouse on a hp pavilion dv6 laptop, running windows 7 64 bit, the mouse works fine, except at seemingly random times it just stops working. I then have to uninstall all of my usb drivers, and reboot the computer. It can take up to 3 reboots before the mouse works again. The mouse worked fine in vista on the same machine, the same type of mouse works on my wife's laptop which is the same as mine, except she is running vista 64 bit.

When the wireless mouse stops working, the built in touch pad works fine, but this is a pain, i have never gotten used to using the touch pad. When the mouse stops working, device manager displays unknown device in the usb driver's section. I have updated all of my drivers, both from intel and hp.

Stopping Microsoft Office Updates Offer

Os: windows 7 home premium 64-bit my computer came preloaded with a trial of microsoft office home and student 2007. I have since uninstalled it. Even though it is no longer installed on my machine, windows update continues to pester me with office updates i do not want or need. I have all updates installed, even a handful of earlier office updates from when i did have the software installed. Since i no longer have office, i have no use for any more updates to it. Therefore i would like to know how to stop this incessant nagging to update office. I would appreciate a real helpful response and not just an irrelevant copy-paste auto-response.

Dell 720 Printer

I recently installed windows 7. I cannot get my dell 720 printer to print. The computer recognizes it, but when i hit print it will not send it at all or an error 0x00000006 comes up. I called the dell service and they said my printer is not compatible. Is there any way around this or am i going to have to buy a new printer just for windows 7? I have tried the windows troubleshooting and a few drivers but any suggestions are welcome. I will repeat things that i have already done if you think they will work

Dell Printer Compatibility

I recently had to buy a new laptop which had windows 7 installed. I have a perfectly good dell personal all in one printer/scanner/fax/copier, but when i went to the dell site to upload the proper driver, i discovered that they don't provide a windows 7 driver for that model because it is considered "obsolete". Their customer service (of course!) Tried to sell me on buying a new printer to resolve the issue, but quite frankly, i don't use the printer all that often and don't want to invest a ton of money in a new printer.

I tried to install the vista 32 bit version of the printer driver (another forum suggested this as a workaround), but that does not seem to be working. However, i could be doing something wrong.

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.
