Error - No Default Printer Found


My dell inspiron running windows 7 has decided to advise "no default printer found" when i try to print. It tells me to add a printer and try again. Then there is nothing. If i try to add a printer in "printers and devices", it says that windows can't add printer and that the local print spooler service is not running. It says to restart the spooler or machine (restarting machine hasn't worked and i don't know how to do the other).computers are not my forte and i'd be really grateful for any help from more experience folk.

Default Printer Identification

I am using 64bit windows7 with a hp laserjet5 parallel printer. I have tried three times to associate the hplj5 driver with the default printer by deleting the existing entry in printers & faxes and then adding a new printer. The result is that my default printer is now called "hp laserjet 5 (copy 3). "

When i issue a print command, i get different results, depending on the active program: (a) in firefox, "hp laserjet 5" comes up in the print window and the document prints directly; (b) in notepad and internet explorer, "hp laserjet 5 (copy 3) appears in the print window, but the print command fails; if i change the selection to "hplaserjet 5" in the window, the document prints correctly; and (c) in wordpad, there is no way to print at all.

I assume that i will need to edit the registry to correct this situation, and i would greatly appreciate a step-by-step description of how to associate the hplj5 driver with the default printer.

Network Printer Driver Not Found

I have installed and tested a dell p1500 laser print as a local printer. When i attempt to install the same device as a network printer, the printer is found via the network, but the drivers can not be located. If i could locate where that driver was installed for the local installation, would it also work for the network installation?If so, where do i locate the drivers for the locally installed devices?

Terminal Services Default Printer Issue

In this message, the user is having trouble in windows 7 losing the default setting on a printer. Alan morris from microsoft chimes in noting that this is an "old" terminal services issue. I believe i am having that terminal services issue. I use remote desktop to my office workstation. I have my home printer's driver loaded on this office workstation so that i may print to my home printer when remotely connected to my office pc from home.

When i break that connection - usually by just closing the mstsc window - my office pc does not return the default setting to my typical default printer. Either my default setting is lost entirely (no setting at all) or the quickbooks pdf printer gets set as the default. Can anyone help? Especially since this might be an old issue related to terminal services?

Epson Stylus C60 Printer Driver Not Found

I have a shared printer (epson stylus c60) on a windows xp desktop. When trying to install the printer on a network laptop using windows 7, i get a driver not found on network message. There are no printer drivers available from epson. Their web site states that says to use the "built-in windows 7 driver". That driver does work on the laptop when the printer is connected to it directly. But when on the network, it comes up with an error message that says the "driver cannot be found on the network".

"windows installation cannot continue because a required driver could not be found" error when installing windows 7 ultimate over windows vista home premium 64-bit. No additional information is given, so i have no idea what to do. I am on the bizspark program and i am trying to upgrade from windows vista home premium 64-bit to windows 7 ultimate 64-bit.

Error Found Code 646 Install Microsoft Office Updates

I am running windows vista (32 bit) premium home edition service pack 2 on a dell inspiron 530s pc.
The specific updates that i have been experiencing the problem are:

 Security update for microsoft office 2003 (kb975051)
 
 Security update for microsoft office excel 2003 (kb973475)
 Security update for microsoft office word 2003 (kb973443)

 Update for microsoft office 2003 (kb978551)
 
 Update for microsoft office outlook 2003 junk email filter (kb977840)

I have not had my computer in "safe mode" during installs. I have tried temporarily disabling my firewall, then i tried with all protection temporarily off. I really do not understand the reasoning for me to need the updates for microsoft office 2003 and related features. I do not have it installed in my computer, nor do i use any outlook products. I assume it may be to cover items that one may receive via email perhaps as an attachment.

Printer Error - Printer Not Available

I upgraded to win 7 about 6 weeks ago, and everything worked fine  then all of a sudden, after i have finished printing a document and clicked the next document to print, i get an error message saying" printer error. Printer not available. " I have checked everything including troubleshooting, and everything is fine. The only way i can get my printer back (hp all-in-one c7280) is to turn the computer off and then back on and do it all over again. No i am not networking; i am the sole user. But i am wondering if somewhere i have printer sharing turned on?  If so where can i find it?

No Tv Tuner Found

I have a new computer running windows 7. My video card is an ati radeon hd 5770 1024mb gddr5.
I neglected to order a tv tuner when i placed the order for the computer, consequently, i've purchased a tv tuner - ati tv wonder hd 650 pci digital & analog tv tuner. The bad news is the tv tuner is for windows vista.

I've downloaded from ati a driver but i am still unable to get the tv to work in my computer. The computer is unable to find the necessary tuner(s). Any suggestions ?

Thanks for the input. I've got the problem fixed. I gave up and removed the tuner card from the computer, re-plugged in everything to the computer and when i turned it on, it showed "tuner driver installed successfully". So, i put the tuner back in and everything is working fine now.

Specified Module Cannot Be Found

I have been having a problem lately when i turn on my computer. Before i have been having the error, windows startup has been smooth an quick. But right now, when i restart my computer, the startup is pretty long and when i sign in my account i get "specified module cannot be found. " It goes on to say winpap32. Rom cannot be found. I searched this file online and cannot find it. It seems since i started having this problem, startup has been long. Any ideas?

Ideas:i had a trojan between the time startup was smooth and rocky. But i removed it and did an immediate scan with no more detected.could the missing module be hindering my startup? I have tried looking online for the file and or people with similar problems. It seems that i am the only one.

Default Gateway Problem

I have windows 7 and i've been using dsl for about a month. I was using my internet without any problems yesterday afternoon but when i tried to get on in the evening my internet was not working. When i troubleshoot it says "the default gateway is not available. " It's not the modem because i've used the same modem with 3 different computers since the problem started. My norton security expired yesterday also which i heard could disable the internet but i uninstalled norton and that had no effect. I don't really know what else to try so any advice would be great.

How To Customize Default Profile?

I was hoping someone could help me; i am trying to customize my windows 7 default profile. The way i used to do this in the past with winxp was by:

Create a local user account that did not have admin rights login with that local user and tweak the desktop and all application the way i wanted them reboot and map the that machines local drive from another computer make a copy of the original default profile and name it "default profile (original)" copy the contents of the local user account profile that i logged in with earlier and paste it over the default user profile

This worked like a charm and all users that logged in thereafter received the tweaked user profile that i created. With windows 7 i'm running into a lot of permission issues (even though i'm logged in as either a domain admin or local admin).

Also, i granted the local administrator "owner" rights to the default profile and it still failed to copy. I didn't get a specific error unfortunately. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as this is driving me crazy. It's something i used to be able to do so simply with xp.

No Device Drivers Found

I'm trying to install windows 7, and have wasted multiple discs in the process, trying different speeds, different softwares, even different types of discs. My problem is i'm getting stuck with the "no device drivers found. " I've seen a few threads but i cannot find an answer that will work.

The last thing i thought i would mention is that i'm currently on windows xp x32 and i'm wanting to go to windows 7 x64. Can this be done? Do i need to fully uninstall windows xp with the windows xp disc before even using the windows 7 disc?
