Windows 7: Looking for Driver downloads

31 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 32 bit
Looking for Driver downloads

I'm trying to find driver downloads for:
Scanner, Canon LiDE30
Printer HP Laserjet P1005

I've done a search on this forum and on the MS downloads site and either I'm too dumb to know what to input or the softwear doesn't exist. I'd appreciate some help on this.

Thanks in advance.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64-bit)

Hello there, welcome to the forums

Windows 7 has its own drivers for the HP Laserjet P1005, you just have to go to "Printers and Devices" after connecting the HP, right click it, and click on "Solve Issues" another screen will pop up, click next, and it'll try to figure out what's happening to the hardware, a little bit later it'll tell you that you don't have the driver for it, it'll connect to the internet and it'll download the driver to install it as soon as possible. It has worked for me with HP products and Windows 7.

Try that and report back, please :)

EDIT: i just looked in Canon's website and they have Windows Vista 32-bit Drivers, use them in compatibility mode, here:

CanoScan Toolbox
ScanGear CS

Those are the 2 files you need to download ans install in order to have the Scanner working

Again, report back after finishing :)
