Heres the deal. My printer worked fine with windows XP. I recently got windows 7 and my printer isn't working anymore. I went in control panel in the printer section, and it said to troubleshoot my printer. Then it says I'm missing a driver for it. Windows 7 locates the right driver for me, I download it, then when I'm installing it it says that I don't have enough RAM (it says I have 504 RAM and I need 512 RAM).

So...
1. My computer said it was 512 RAM when I bought it, where did those 8 RAM go?
2. Why did this printer work on XP but not on Windows 7?
3. How do I get it to print, preferably without buying another printer, computer or RAM?

Please excuse my ignorance, I'm a major noob when it comes to computers.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
you're running windows 7 on 512 mb of ram?

that might not necessarily be your problem, but it will be.
