Re: new xps15 laptop/printer scanner needed

This question has been answered by Outdooranimal

Greetings.  I just bought the above laptop for doing books. Am I able to use my older printer and scanner with the new laptop? Running windows 10.  Older equipment is not wireless.

Verified Answer
  • The scanner is a Canon Lide 210 and the printer is a Brother laser HL2240.  They are currently running on a desktop tower running Windows 7 Home.

    Depends on the make and model of your printer/scanner. Some offer Windows 10 drivers and some will install using the Vista drivers in the Vista SP2 Compatibility mode

  • Outdooranimal,

    Canon's website has drivers for the Canon lide 210.

    Brother's website has drivers for the Brother Laser HL2240.

    Install the drivers before connecting them to your computer.
