Dell Printer 1500 Laser


Dell will not update the drivers for my printer (1500p laser) - it's in perfectly working condition, so i would like to keep it. I have a pc running xp (on a shared network) so i'm wondering. Is there a way to create a shared folder on the xp machine and when i add files to the share from the win7 (x64 hp) pc, the xp treats the folder as a print que, therefore, i can still print from my primary (win7) to the 1500 laser?

Hp Laserjet 1500 Printer - Unable To Install Drivers

My hp laserjet 1500 printer needs drivers. Why doesn't windows install drivers for this printer? It quite frustrating to spend large dollar on an operating system, only to find out you can't use your hardware with it. This is how business gets a bad name.

Oki Laser Printer Offline Error

I'm using windows 7 64bit edition and an oki c5150n laser printer and have downloaded the latest drivers from the website. It always says the printer is offline, and when i uncheck the "use printer offline" mode, anytime i try and print it gives an error, which troubleshoot "fixes" by turning the printer to offline mode and the file i sent to print still does nothing. I have checked the cords, rebooted the printer and computer, as well as using "remove device". Any ideas would be appreciated

Hp Laser Jet 5p Printer Problem In Win 7

I've spent about 5-6 hours on this, and am pulling my hair out.

I've got a new hp computer w/ w7 home premium 64 bit. And i'm connecting my old laserjet 5p via a parrallel line from the printer, to a male, 25 pin (db25), that is plugged into a female db25 parallel cable that has a usb on the other end. Usb is connected to port on the new computer. The device area has it listed as only a "unspecified" unknown device.

I started with w7's canned programs adding a printer, setting up devices, downloading drivers. Driver updates. When the test print did nothing, then i went onto trouble shooting. When that went nowhere.

Then i went to hp, looked through many blogs/community help sites, and eventually used their tech support for both the new computer area (had me re-do the canned parts, download drivers via devices area, again, and when that failed (again) they suggested i call their "commercial laserjet" technician who said. "It's no longer supported. " And if the driver you downloaded doesn't work, it's ms's problem, not ours.contact them. " Which (eventually) leads me here.

I went thru the ms canned fix-its, and downloaded manually from hp's site (as opposed to the devices automatic download/updates), only to get a message. "Windows encountered a problem installing the driver. The error occurred during installation, because it is either not digitally signed or not signed.contact your hardware vendor (that would be hp, who doesn't support it)

So you get the picture. I working a pretzel here. Ms says it's hp, hp says it's ms. And all i want is to use my printer that worked two weeks ago on my old compaq

So, there was one hp clue that i found that seems like i might be closer to the problem a .doc that said, look for a ieee 1284 interface in your devices, and make sure there are no error codes. So, i found ieee 1394's or something like that (i'm not there now). But no ieee 1284's. Let alone error codes

So, i got back in touch with hp service, and how do i get ieee 1284 there instead. They said they don't know, and it's a ms problem.

So, with a little more digging, i found in "device manager" that i could add a ieee 1284 printer. But the drag down list did not have the 5p. So close, but so far, and nothing to update, like in the other device area.

So, i'm getting pretty frustrated that an hp printer can't work on an hp computer, even after downloading a driver from hp. Is this ieeee 1284 something you can set up?

Any clues on how to fix this would be very, very much appreciated

Thanks, drjames

Canon Imagepass D660 Laser Printer - Cannot Find Driver

I'm looking for creative ideas on my friend's current conundrum. He got a new $400 compaq pc from best buy loaded w/ windows 7 64-bit. All went swimmingly well until we got to his canon imagepass d660 laser printer. No 64-bit driver. Canon will never create a 64-bit driver for it. He loves this printer and does not want to abandon it. We can print to the printer from a laptop we converted from 32-bit vista to 32-bit 7. I'd share the printer from the laptop to the desktop but i believe that would still require a 64-bit driver.

I see only two options, unless someone can suggest another:

1. Repurchase win 7 at retail; wipe & reload the pc with 32-bit. Not sure if 32-bit drivers are available for the internal hardware. No cd came with the pc, either.

2. Return the pc and locate another pc with 32-bit loaded - probably via dell or hp online.
If there is any way to circumvent a problem where there is no 64-bit support for a printer but another networked pc can print via 32-bit, i'd love to know about it.

Canon Lbp 810 Laser Printer Driver Installation Problem

Windows 7 os wont install driver for canon lbp810 laser printer using installation disk for lbp810 printer. I have attempted to run the install disk for the printer as well as using auto update function in windows 7. It seems the list of printers windows lists does not include the lbp810 model. I have also downloaded the driver from the net which fails as well. There seems to be a compatibility issue with the older drivers used to run printers. Can anyone please help me with this?

Canon Mf4370dn Laser Printer Keeps Showing Up As "offline"

I just bought a new canon mf4370dn laser printer and followed the instructions that came with the printer for setting it up to print via the network. The printer printed the test page, but keeps showing up as "offline" and i can't print anything at all. I have a toshiba laptop that has windows 7 on it (not sure if that's relevant).

I have very little knowledge of how networks work or how to set such things up properly, but i followed the instructions in the 'starter guide' that came with the printer. The printer is plugged in and turned on, however keeps showing up as "offline" when i look at the printer queue.

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.

Dell 948 Printer Compatibility

My dell vostro 1710 vista laptop crashes! I buy a new dell vostro 3700 windows 7 laptop and ask, will the windows 7 work with my dell 948 all in one printer - answer "it should, if not, all you would need is to download a driver!" I did that and it still does not work. Called dell tech support and as long as i buy a software warranty for a ridiculous price they can fix my problem from there! Only thing i can figure out to do here is to go buy a new printer that is compatible with the windows 7! Cheaper than buying a warranty from dell! Does anyone agree with this? Not a computer expert here!

Dell A920 Printer Wont Work

I have a dell a920 all-in-one printer that won't work under windows 7 (32 bit). Are there any new drivers available from microsoft? The dell website only offers drivers for vista. Windows 7 recognized the a920 and installed it, but it then when i tried to print, it appeared to have difficulty with the spooling. Now it shows the printer icon with the little yellow triangle and say it requires attention.

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?
