    The printer and its drivers were working fine under windows XP .
    But you have upgraded to windows 7, and the drivers were for windows XP the older operating system.

    Click Start--control panel--system and security--device manager--printer--driver--uninstall.
    this will clear the windows from the incompatible but installed driver.
    Now simply exiting the menu will install a new windows 7 driver for printer by windows 7 from its installation.
    If you want even more customized driver , log in to www.canon.com/drivers, find the printer driver from the list, which is for your specific model and windows 7 compatible both.
    Download and install, things will be normal.

    Re: Canon Printer drivers failed to work after updating to Windows 7.

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...............

    1.This was the problem of the old version of the driver.

    2.As windows 7 is the latest version than the Windows XP.

    3.So it may need the updated version of the drivers.

    4.So you make a right click on the 'My Computer' and click on 'Manage'.

    5.Then click on 'Device Manager' and open the Printer Drivers'.

    6.There you go to the 'Driver' tab and click on 'Update Driver'.

    7.If still you have the problem then the problem is with the printer so check it first.

    Have a nice day.............

    Hi...

    For Printers issue mainly with drivers or Cable connections..

    So check the connections and Drivers installation..

    Download drivers from internet and install it

    OR

    Go to Device manager and Update drivers.

    If you have Drivers CD you can Install directly with CD.

    Check drivers installation after installing drivers.

    Thank you.
