I currently have two (2) issues with Microsoft Windows 11. I have a HP Pavilion 590-p0033w.

 

Upon signing into Microsoft Windows 11 account with password information, upon loading the system, the screen blanks over and over again without any icons shown on the desktop. I have to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to restart the system. Once the system is restarted, I enter my login information again and the desktop boots normally at that point. That is something else right there.

 

As for the printer - Canon PIXMA MX490 – it will not print, but the scanner is working just fine. The printer works in Microsoft Windows 10, but not in version 11. I’ve tried searching for drivers manually, but the system cannot find any drivers to download to Microsoft Windows 11. The drivers don’t seem to work anymore and a new software update maybe needed.

 

That’s all for now. I’ll let you know if any additional fixes are needed in the future. Thanks a lot! :smile:
