Online Printer Not Recognized As Online


I recently upgraded to windows 7 professional from vista business. After upgrade, i was able to access a wireless hp c4380 series multi function printer thru my lan. Now for some reason, i can not longer print to this printer. When i run the troubleshooter, it tells me the printer is off line and to turn on the printer.

I have turned it off and back on and it still shows up as offline, both in the troubleshooter and in the control panel device window. I have not made any other changes to the computer or installed any new hardware or software. It just stopped working one morning.

I checked the router via my admin access and all devices are visible to the router. So why is the printer not visible as online to windows 7, all of a sudden. As i said, it worked for weeks, now it is invisible.

Network Printer Shows As Offline When Its Online

Network printer shows as offline when it's online at its locally connected computer. Printer is laserjet 4000 attached through a usb port. Printer driver is hp universal printing pcl 5 (v5. 1).computer which has printer connected locally is windows 7 professional 32 bit.computer which has printer showing as offline is windows 7 professional 64 bit. Fter acquiring and implementing 64-bit printer driver everything works well for about 24 hours, then printer shows as offline. Trouble shooting says set printer to default printer - no change in status. Unlike vista, there doesn't appear to be any way to set the printer status as online.

Cannot Connect To Online Help

Whenever i search for help, i get the message "you are not connected to online help". I have set the options so that i should be. There is nothing wrong with my internet connection and this happens all the time. I am using microsoft security essentials and i would expect windows firewall to let it's own program communicate. I changed my router and had online help for about a day. When my computer downloaded the latest update from windows, (which was just supposed to be a verification program - my copy of windows 7 is legit, i got vista with this computer and upgraded to windows 7 through hewlet packard), online help stopped working.

I did a system restore to before i installed the update and online help was back. I downloaded  the windows cleanup utility and got rid of what was left of a previously installed version of symantec internet security, and online help was gone again. I tried doing a system restore to before i downloaded and used the cleanup utility, but now online help won't come back. What change are these programs making that affects my ability to use online help, and how do i fix it?

Not Able To View Online Videos

Problem viewing internet videos, i recently purchased a toshiba satellite laptop with windows 7 (including wmp) installed. My browser is internet explorer. When i try to watch video on news channels (or youtube, or any other medium), the video will often stop midway, or after several seconds, and never resume. One channel prompted me to download flash player, which i did, but it has made no difference. The only system protection i have installed is microsoft security essentials. I've read several of the other posts which seem related to this, but they don't seem to have the answer i need. I'd sure appreciate any advice to address this problem.

Re-activate Online Upgrade

I recently purchased a samsung n140 with w7 starter edition, after a week i used the online upgrade to install the home premium edition, which installed with no problems. The problem i have is the netbook came with a restore partition, so if i have to do a complete restore, it will take me back to the starter edition. Part from using acronis to be able to restore the home premium edition, is there any other way, i have the upgrade key written down, but do not know if i could upgrade again from a fresh starter edition reinstall. Ny advice would be welcome.

Online Video Problem

I bought a brand new sony vaio a couple months back with windows 7 home premium pre-installed. Everything seems to be working fine but when i get online to view videos, this is where the problem begins. Let's take youtube as an example. When i want to view the video. I let it fully buffer so the progress bar shows the full red line indicating that it is fully buffered.

As the video is playing it will stop all of a sudden and just stop playing even though as stated earlier, the video is fully buffered. I experience this with any video site. What is going on? I used other computers in the house and they didn't seem to have this problem, it only seems like my computer is going through this. Is this a problem with windows or something else?

Online Activation Will Not Work

My computer came from best buy ready to go with windows 7 premium installed. I reformatted my hardrive and now am asked to activate windows 7. When i attempt to do this online i receive a message that states that my product key is not valid. I input the key from the label on the bottom of the computer exactly as printed. I tried several times. Each time the same error. I verified the input each time and had it checked by another individual. Each time the same result.

If the product key is not valid why has microsoft and toshiba provided it and it is on my computer?

Online Help And Support Not Working

When i run help & support off the start menu & type a search term & run a search it only finds the installed search results. It can't find the online ones. All i get is this message:-
   
You're not connected to online help, which shows you our latest content. Check your internet connection, and then try to connect to online help again. If you still see this message, the online help service might be temporarily unavailable.
 
 I have ticked the online help tick box & of course i am connected to the internet which is how i am sending this. I have disabled windows firewall & norton with no result. I have also ran sfc. This has been for a while now so is more than "temporary unavailable". I cannot think of anything else that is preventing this.

Online Purchase Activation

I purchased windows 7, having upgraded my pc from vista. I apparently did not activate windows 7 during the lengthy downloading process. Although i am using windows 7 now, i get pop up messages telling me i have so many days to activate the product. When i go to the activation center on my pc, i see a 20 character number for activation, not a 25 character number. When i attempt to enter that number, i get a message that tells me i'm entering an unacceptable character after the first keystroke.

I only have about 2 weeks left before the activation period ends. What am i doing wrong? Can i just re-install windows 7. All of the necessary program folders and files i purchased are on my hard drive.

Run Update Online

I need to run windows update from www.Update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/vistadefault.aspx instead of from control panel. Can i turn the "automatic" version off, or is there another way to get past it?The problem is that my isp restricts the size of the day's downloads, unless i download only during a certain time period overnight. I cannot afford to have my computer slow down to below dial-up speed during the day, and since i do not want to give windows update blanket approval for downloads and installation, i cannot restrict its timeframe.

Media Player 12 - No Online Stores

I upgraded my sony vaio laptop from vista to windows 7 custom install. When adding album art to ripped cds i encountered problems of song titles, artists info being wrongly overwritten. I also could not access online stores as when i tried no stores were listed and the only thing that happened was that the word "categories" underlined momentarily flashes on the screen. I tried all the remedies i could find in forums but nothing helped. When running troubleshooter i got the library corrupted  and media centre wrongly configured messages.

I have now done a second custom install of windows 7 on my laptop and prior to adding any music to to the player library i have run the trouble shooter and get the same results-media player library is corrupted. I suppose when i rip my cds again i will encounter the usual problems. When trying to access online stores i again find no stores listed and the only thing that occurs is the word categories momentarily flashing on and off the screen. Can anyone help me access online stores. Any thoughts on why player library is corrupted after clean install and nothing added to library?

Unable To View Online Video

Embedded windows media player i am trying to view a movie embedded on a webpage. I know the server is working, as i can view the movie on another computer using the same network connection i am using now. The video continues to say "connecting to media", then finally says "ready" but doesn't play the movie. The error says that it encountered an error while attempting to play the file. If i go to web help i get this error message windows media player c00d11b1 my sound device is not having an issue, so i don't see why that would be the problem. Has anyone encountered this issue or have any idea of a way to fix it?

Whenever I Click Any Video Online The Browser Freezes

I have windows 7 professional and whenever i click any video online the browser freezes and only way to close it is shut the program down as it just freezes up and program says not responding. It does the same thing in both firefox and microsoft explorer. I am not trying to watch it with any unusual media players and it does the same thing even when i went directly to youtube and tested opening any movie as i figured youtube is the most common video site/file format so if i cant open youtube i have a problem.

I bought this computer 1 month ago and haven't installed any media players and the only software i installed/updated since purchase that runs thru the internet would be acrobat, picassa, quicken, and filezilla ftp. I have the most current updates versions of microsoft windows 7 os, windows explorer, and firefox . What is going on ?

Random Spike / Lag Online Game

I experience random lag spike when playing online game (rf online), i'm very sure this is not fps lag because my notebook can play gtaiv smoothly and this online game is kind a very old game (2001). I never get this problem when playing with xp. Some sites suggesting to turn off the multimedia scheduler, or disable auto-config on my wireless network connection, also did change the 'network performance throttling' on registry to be ffffffff. But none of them solve the problem. Last thing i did is reinstalling windows 7 and just put the necessary driver on it just for running the game, still the resource monitor displaying lag-spike on network grap.

My notebook spec:

Model g51vx-rx05 cpu intel core 2 duo p7350 2. 0ghz memory 4gb ddr2 800mhz (2x2gb)graphics nvidia geforce gtx 260m 1gb gddr3 storage 320gb 7200 rpm os windows 7 32-bit wireless intel 802. 11 a/g/n webcam 1. 3 mega pixel wired internet 10/100 ethernet, all with newest drivers from asus support page.

Cannot Play Audio From Online Streaming Video Through Headset

On my new windows 7 home premium system, i can not play audio from online streaming video (hulu) through my headset jack.

After looking around to troubleshoot, have checked here: on my taskbar beside the time, i click the speaker icon and can see the incoming signal for my hulu is coming in. On the control panel/sound i have tested the left and right sound output and it tests ok. So, why is the sound not getting to the headphone speakers? How can i make this work? Have tried both ie and firefox current releases and neither works. Was trying to watch the superbowl ads on www.Hulu.com/adzone. Video works, but have no audio getting through.

Shockwave Error When Playing Games Online Or Watching Movies

Okay, i am having a huge issue with my windows 7 operating system. I recently upgraded from windows vista to 7 via the disk dell sent me. I got my operating system free because i purchased after a certain date. Everything worked fine for the first week then i started experiencing error that i cannot seem to find if anyone else has had similar problems. Now i had to do a system roll back, but guess what i still have the problem.

I rolled back to when my shockwave player was working and it continued to not work. Everytime i try to play an online flash game my shockwave fails critically. Even on movies sometimes i am using a dell studio xps 16, with a mobility radeon t9550 at 2. 67 ghz processor speed. There are no problems with my graphics card for it worked for maybe 20 minutes then messed up again. I reinstalled shockwave and still problems. I don't have a virus, i use kaspersky internet security 2010, and it works fine.

Xm Radio "online" Listeners

For some reason, i suddenly cannot get the online stream for xm radio to work - it logs in fine, i click the station i want to play, it says "connecting" as normal, and then normally it would switch to "playing" and it would work fine . Now, instead of switching to "playing" at that point and starting, it just keeps going back to "ready" after connecting . I had a virus a while back and took my desktop into compusa and they fixed it . Everything works fine now except this - is there a "seting" they may have switched that blocks it or something?

Hardware Not Recognized

I have a simple tech 250 signature mini external hard drive (which is compatible just to plug in and use according to microsoft)that is not working on my new dell studio laptop, the harddrive works on all other computers in my house hold with out windows 7. Been surfing last 3 days on net to try and fix the problem since all my important files from old desktop are on it, thing i have tried :

Updated all drivers that i know about
Updated bios off dell.com
Updated 3 different chipset versions
Tried simple tech for drivers but only have a version for windows 98
Unplugged battery and power supply

Updated windows various times even trying optional updates i thought would affect it. Tried small 2g usb drive and it worked properly, also mouse i am using currently

Note: when drive gets plugged in red light comes on and starts running properly, not a power supply issue. I go to device manager and its there but listed as unknown device, i update drivers and it says all drivers are up to date or not needed for device, the disk is not recognized in disk management.

Problem 3) i added a password into my account which is also administrator account. The same password works when pc starting up but it doesn't work when i tried to switch pc back from sleeping mode with the same password. It shown me 'account being disabled'. I see no option in the control panel for me to activate this account again.

Problem 4) whenever i switch on my notebook, the screen shown 'system preparation tool 3. 14'. What is this for and is it recommended to have this? If not, pls advice how to switch this off at windows 7. I found some procedure to switch off at windows vista but not 7. Apologize for i can't differential between toshiba's problem or window's problem. All i know, i have some frustration to get things done with this new notebook and windows 7.
