Before we begin, let us clear something up: this blog is dedicated to solving printer, drivers, ink cartridge and toner cartridge issues. In order to solve these issues, you must know which exact version of your OS is installed on your computer.

This tutorial will show you how to identify your OS and its bit rate, and how to get a quick diagnosis of any problem that may appear on your computer.

In most cases, ink cartridge problems have very little or nothing to do with physical problems occurring on your printer, but then to be related to driver issues. This is why we sometimes recommend you uninstall and install your drivers back in your computer, since turning your printer off or moving a file from its original location can mess with your printer’s drivers.

If you need to download the drivers for your printer, and lack the original installation CD, please read the post found in this link. keep in mind you’ll also need to have all this basic information about your computer -OS and OS version- to install this printers, so please read the following instructions to get it done.

Procedure to find out the version of windows installed on a computer:

First of all, make sure your computer is on and fully functional. Here is a quick way for learning this information; some longer ones do exist, but this is the one we’re using. Click on the start menu to detect this particular OS version.

Step #1:
Please enter the start menu, located on the lower-left side of your desktop. That will display a menu on your computer screen, which will depend on what OS version you’re using.

If yours looks like this one, please click on the logo and look at the emerging menu.

Step #2:
Click on the execute option on the menu, which should look like this:

Step #3:
Once you’ve clicked on it, a small window will appear on screen, asking you to insert a processing code. Now, type winver in the slot, just as is shown in the following picture.

As you can see, the window shows we’re using windows, specifically windows XP professional. This is the information you’ll get if the start menu logo looks like the one we showed you.

Step #5:
In, on the contrary, our start menu logo looks like this:, and lacks the actual lettering, just click on it and wait for the menu to unfold completely.

The execute option will not show up this time, so we’ll have to use the integrated search engine on our computer. If, for example, we type execute on it and ask it to search the entire computer, this option will now be available to us. Just repeat the instructions in step #4 once you’ve reached this spot, and you’ll be able to find out exactly what version of windows is running on your computer. Please look at the next picture.
