Hp Photosmart C4480 - Printer Not On Server

Have downloaded patch from hp but still stays "printer not on server". I upgraded my xp desktop to w7 which is connected to hp photosmart c4480 all in one and this computer prints ok. My laptop was upgraded from vista to w7 and is on the homegroup. I can access all the libraries no problem but when i try to print it states "printer not on server".

Have checked that printer is shared and have downloaded recent patch from hp, have deleted old drivers and installed latest w7 drivers from hp, have run printer troubleshoot and network troubleshoot which says everything is working ok? What am i missing ?

Hp Photosmart C5550 Printer Problem

I have a new computer, windows 7, ms office suite loaded. Moved all my old ms documents to new computer, and now the xl docs will not accept printer? Printer is hp c5550 photosmart. I continually get a dialog box when i try to print any of my excel docs. There is no problem in my computer talking to the printer in any program outside of ms office, or when printing power point or word docs transferred to my new setup - only the xl spreadsheets. I have repeatedly tried working thru the recommended "fixes" without success (checking cables, ink, paper, power, everything short of removing and reinstalling drivers).

Hp Photosmart C6300 Wireless Printer Issue

Connecting a new windows 7 laptop (sony vaio) to an existing hp wireless printer that will be shared with two existing xp computers - one laptop and a desktop. After connecting my new sony vaio, which is running windows 7, to an existing wireless hp photosmart c6300 printer, a second laptop in my home (running xp) can no longer access the wireless printer; the printer had been removed from the computer. I set up a home group unintentionally when i set up the printer on my new laptop.

I was asked if i was going to "share a printer" and i selected "yes", but i do not need a home group because i'm not sharing anything other than the printer. I have uninstalled the printer on my windows 7 laptop and reinstalled it, but it seems once the home group is set up, it is there to stay. I'm able to print from the windows 7 computer as well as the desktop xp, but not the second xp laptop. Any ideas on how to remedy this issue?

Hp Photosmart C6180 Wireless Printer Problem

I've wrestled with this problem for several weeks. I have a hp dv3 laptop on a homegroup network. I have an hp photosmart 6180 (wireless) printer. My desktop pc can print, my wife's laptop can print, but i cannot. When try to print everything seems to go as it should with no errors, no delays. To all intents i should have a printout, but i don't. My wife has the same model laptop, and can print directly to the printer using her installed drivers, or via homegroup printer sharing with our desktop.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled and everything seems ok. The hp solution centre tells me the printer is there and even allows me to access the printer settings on an html page from my laptop. I even can see the ink level, but i cannot print. My laptop is windows 7 home premium, my wife the same and the desktop has win 7 ultimate.

Remote Procedure Call (rpc) Protocol Error Occurred

My husband got a new laptop with windows 7. I'm trying, unsuccessfully, to get the computer to recognize our iomega hard drive that is connected to our wireless network. The network that it is on is named workgroup. Windows 7 recognizes the hard drive iomega, but when i click on it i get this message. Iomega is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.

Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. A remote procedure call (rpc) protocol error occurred. Any ideas? How do i get it to recognize the workgroup or don't i need it to? I've went to iomega's web page to adjust settings, but this laptop still won't let me access it. I've tried turning of the firewall - that's not it.

Problem Printing Through Wireless Printer Server

Problems printing with hp950c through a d-link dp-g310 wireless printer server after upgrade from windows vista to windows 7. I have a sony vgnz790dib that came with windows vista. I could access and use a hp950c inkjet printer through a d-link dp-g310 wireless printer server with vista. I upgraded to windows 7 yesterday and now cannot use the printer.

A dell xps 1330 running vista works fine. As far as i can tell, the ip address for the printer server on the sony is identical to that on the dell. I ran troubleshooter for the printer and there was no problem uncovered. I then went online to see if others had the same problem but could not find any identical problems. I went to hp online and found that there was an updated software which i downloaded and also connected the printer directly to the sony via usb and still no printing. Any advice on what to do next?

Gateway Unavailable

I have recently upgraded to windows 7. Now my internet connection is constantly lost and has to be reset manually. The troubleshooter always says gateway unavailable and then corrects the problem. This happens every 5 minutes. Unfortunately this means i am unable to  play online, download or any continuous internet usage. I have other pcs that don't have windows 7 and there is not a problem.

I have googled this problem and it seems quite common without a definitive solution. I have tried all the sensible solutions suggested. So far.

I have called out my isp and they have run remote and local checks. They even replaced my socket and checked the exchange - no improvement. I don't have a nvidia network adapter, but a realtecone and i have rolled back the driver - no improvement. I have altered the power setting on the network adapter - no improvement. I have run the various ipconfig commands that are meant to clear buffers and reset things - no improvement. I ran the internet for a while in safe mode and did not have a problem until i reset into normal mode.

Is there any real solution out there?

Family Pack Upgrade Unavailable?

Having been running the rc for several months on my home laptop i am very happy with it and as the end date approaches i have just looked to buy the uk family upgrade pack to upgrade all of our home computers only to find that it is now unavailable

Can't help but think that this is a bit unfair on those of us who have been running the rc and in doing so have seemingly missed out on this offer. Fair enough, i didn't expect anything for nothing by running the rc but can't help but feel a bit hard done by

Is there going to be any further release of this pack?

Active Directory Domain Services Unavailable

I'm running windows 7 and after the last set of updates (4/15/2010) i can no longer access the print servers (version 2003). It gives me the message: active directory domain services unavailable. I have verified that dns is set up properly and have tried without the firewall active. I have also tried doing a system restore but that failed to fix the problem. I suspect a registry issue as i have the same problem regardless of what problem i try to print with.

I am also now having a problem with adobe and am getting the error message: unable to print: no pages were selected to print. I noticed that these patches are for patches. I am also unable to use the diagnostics program because it says i do not have the "download a file periodically that helps determine system problems" box " checked even though i do. My computer is a tool that is useless with out this ability.

Office Outlook 2007 - Microsoft Exchange Is Unavailable

I am trying to configure microsoft office outlook 2007. When i open the program, it comes up with a message that reads "microsoft exchange is unavailable. " Since i don't use/don't know what microsoft exchange is, i click "work offline. " I then get a message that reads ""outlook cannot log on. Verify you are connected to the network and are using the proper server and mailbox name.

The connection to microsoft exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action. " I then hit "ok, " and it asks me for microsoft exchange information, which i do not have. I hit "cancel, " and it says "cannot open your default e-mail folders.

Your profile is not configured. " I then hit "ok" and the program quits. How am i supposed to be able to configure my accounts when the program quits every time i try to open it? I would greatly appreciate some assistance! I have two comcast email accounts and my . Edu account.

Hp Photosmart C4280 Device Failed With Errors

Local printing to the hp photosmart c4280 all-in-one device fails with errors in the error log.network printing from the macbook pro to the same printer shared from the windows 7 machine works fine.

The errors are:

The print spooler failed to load a plug-in module c:windowssystem32spooldriversx643unidrvui.dll, error code 0xc1. See the event user data for context information.

The document microsoft word - references.doc, owned by michael, failed to print on printer hp photosmart c4200 series. Try to print the document again, or restart the print spooler.

Data type: nt emf 1. 008. Size of the spool file in bytes: 65536. Number of bytes printed: 0. Total number of pages in the document: 1. Number of pages printed: 0. Client computer: \rivendell. Win32 error code returned by the print processor: 2147500037. Unspecified error

Restarting the print spooler does not fix the issue. Installing the latest software and patches also does nothing. Setting permissions to full control for everyone on the unidrvui.dll also has no effect. Unchecking "enable bidirectional support" on the ports tab of the printer properties doesn't work either. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Hp Photosmart C6380 Driver Won't Install

I am trying to connect an hp photosmart printer c6380 all in one to my windows 7os netbook. My netbook is an asus eeepc 100he if that pertains. I am connecting it with a usb cord. I downloaded the software/driver package from the website since this printer is second hand. After most of the install is done it makes me connect the printer so it can install the drivers. It mostly installs the drivers through windows update but it can't find or install the hp photosmart c6300 driver. All the other ones install but not this one. I have completely uninstalled the program and reinstalled it and also just uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled them. No matter what i try it doesn't work. The only drivers offered on the hp site come with the full software/driver install package. I am just lost and thinking of giving up. I want an all in one printer but not if it takes another whole night of trying to figure it out if anyone knows a solution it would be much appreciated. Also i only have the printer for a short time before i have to make a decision whether to actually buy it so prompt answers would really help.

Dns Server

I have a windows dell inspiron. I have a wired connection to the router and there is a problem with the dns. It says there is a problem with the dns server that it can't fix. My other computer is wireless and connects to the internet no problem. I can enter the ip address and get to the website but not the www.Msn.com type address. I spent hours with first my internet provider, then microsoft, then dell (who assures me there is no hardware problem). As best they can figure it is a third party software conflict causing the problem.

My latest attempt to solve the problem was to install windows 7 (before i had windows vista). After 3 hours of going online with no problem the same "dns configuration" problem cropped up. During all these problems i am able to download torrents using utorrent. Does anyone have any ideas? I am at a loss.

Domain Server Not Reachable

I have a problem going to a certain website. Never had a problem before. It's www.Thegoodcook.com. It keeps saying. Internet explorer cannot display the webpage. Internet cannot display this website. This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

Internet connectivity has been lost.
The website is temporarily unavailable.
The domain name server (dns) is not reachable.
The domain name server (dns) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
There might be a typing error in the address.
If this is an https (secure) address, click tools, click internet options, click advanced, and check to be sure the ssl and tls protocols are enabled under the security section

I am volunteering for an organization where i need to install hp media-smart ex490 windows home server to 5 windows 7 machines. I have really very basic "setting up" question if someone could help please. All i know about it is that i will have to connect it to the modem or a wireless router so that it gets connected to the network. What after that? 

1. How do i access the windows home server (whs) ui on all the 5 machines ?
2. Do i need to buy a separate monitor for the whs (windows home server)?

Dns Server Problem

I purchased an hp mini netbook at xmas time. It came with windows 7 starter. I use it mainly for work. In the beginning i had no problem with being able to connect with my wireless work network. Just this week however, i have the issue with it connecting. It tells me that it is connected but without internet access. When i run a diagnostic on it, it tells me "dns server may be experiencing problems". When i run further info on it, it tells me the problem found is "your dns server might be unavailable". I'm not very computer savy, so it goes without saying that i have done no changes to my computer since i got it. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?
