I can't get my scanner or camera to install

Cause: If you are having problems installing the scanner or camera, make certain that you are following the manufacturer instructions provided with the device and that the scanner or camera is connected to the computer correctly. USB devices may require that you install the drivers before plugging in the device, so check the documentation for details. If you are sure that you have followed the instructions and that your device is compatible with Windows XP, you can use the Add an Imaging Device Wizard to help you.

I can't stop a document from printing

Cause: If you chose to print a document and now you want it to stop printing, you can use the print queue. The print queue is particularly helpful when you have a long document that you no longer want to print.

My printer works very slowly

Cause: If printing files seems to be very slow, you may be running low of system resources, such as RAM or hard disk space.

A certain file will not print

Cause: If a certain file type will not print, but other documents print fine, there is probably some kind of software problem between the application you are using and your operating system. This happens sometimes with games and programs that have print features, especially if those games were written for a different operating system.

One of my Game Controlers wont work

Cause: When you have more than one game controller, the computer will typically default to the first one you installed. However, you can change the default game controller so that the one you want to use always comes up first.

My printer prints garbled text

Cause: If your printer prints garbled text, it is almost always a sign of a bad or corrupt driver. Even if you installed the correct driver, it may have become corrupt over time. In this case, you need to reinstall the driver for the printer.
