    your printer works well before in other operating system and now stop to work in window 7.
    It may be due to some problem such as

    --> you missing the some file of driver
    --> problem in loose connection or connectivity problem between computer and printer
    --> now your printer stops to work due to hardware issue in printer

    Fix the error that printer stops to work in window 7 OS

    first , you should check the proper connection between computer and printer and see whether printer is connected or not with pc.If it is ok ,then check the other things.

    In the next step , you should have to go the official site of your printer company and update the driver and install it in your pc.now check your printer starts to work or not.

    now your are seeing the error 41.that error occurs due to issue of device manager that mean you should update the driver or reinstall the driver of your device(printer).After Reinstalling the driver , your printer will start to work.

    At finally ,If your printer will not work even check above to reason , then it may be your printer hardware issue and you should repair your printer by going to printer service station.

    Hi,

    Your trouble must have a relationship with the installation of Windows 7 and definitely involve driver issues.

    The previous Operating System that was installed in your computer had all the requsite Driver files to run all peripherals and attachments, including the printer.

    But once you have installed , though it is rare but The Printer Driver of the early version was overwritten by Windows 7 Printer Driver, but possibly unsuccessfully.

    You need to update the Printer Driver , and in doing so first disable the installed Driver and then Update Printer Driver either using Windows Own Update service or inserting or downloading the manufacturers Driver by logging on to that site and later installing into your Windows 7.

    This will surely help you to run the printer correctly.

    Thanks.

    This is simply a device manager error code. i think you have removed the device just after the windows installing the driver.. for this Just uninstall the driver and reinstall it again. for this go to control panel> hardware and sound> Devices and Printer. now in printer and fax section right click on your printer name and select remove device.

    Note: remove your printer cable first while doing this.

    Restart system plug in printer's cable to install printer again.

    secondly type device manager in search box after clicking start and then go to device manager.
    then in device manager do the following.

    if this not solve your problem then simply find your printer from here listed option and then right click on this and select properties.. and then select driver tab and select roll back driver.

    1.Try to reboot your computer so that you may fix your problem.

    2.or try to repair your computer by inserting the motherboard CD.

    3.Try to get solution through troubleshooter.

    4.Or try to check the USB drivers to do so:-
    Firstly go to the start menu then click on 'My Computer'. There you click on 'Manage'.
    There you go to 'device Manager' The you click on '+' symbol near 'Universal serial Bus Controller'.
