Resolve errors while adding printers
Printers are computer peripheral devices essential for taking physical copies of electronic files that are on a computer. Printers are of many different types and majority of all of them can be installed on any Operating System. Windows based operating systems come with printer set-up wizard that can be used to set up and install the printer. Although there are no complicated procedures involved in adding printers, some users might get errors when installing them. Some of the common errors that might come up when installing printers include unable to install printer message, data invalid message, the specified port is unknown error, Msgsrv32 error etc. Error messages when installing printers mean that users would not be able to complete the printer installation and use the printer. Errors when installing printers might be because of many reasons such as problems with some of the system files, issues with the drivers, registry related problems etc.
- Verify system file integrity
- Clean registry
- Check drivers
Verify system file integrity
When printers are installed on the system, some of the system files on the OS are changed or modified. If these system files are missing or corrupted then errors would come up with the printer installation. All users facing error problem when installing printers are suggested to verify the integrity of the system files using the 'sfc/scannow' command in the command prompt and repair the OS if some of the system files are found damaged.
Registry contains information regarding all the components within a system. If the registry of the system has some errors or problems, the printer installation would run into errors. Such issues because of registry errors can be solved by removing the registry clutters from the system using a registry cleaning software.
Drivers are the communicating link between the hardware components and the Operating System on the computer. All users having errors when installing printers are suggested to check the printer drivers being installed and ensure they are authentic and compatible. Users are also suggested to check the USB drivers as the problem might be with the functioning of the port connecting the printer and the system. If the printer or the USB port drivers are found incorrect, outdated or having some issues, reinstalling replacing them with correct ones would remove the errors and get the printer installed.
