Document Hangs In Printer Queue From Remote Machine

I have a homegroup with 2 computers running windows 7 x64. On the primary i have an hp color laser 1600 connected via usb. I can share files fine. Printer show up fine. The network is working fine. I print a document from the secondary computer and it shows up in the printer queue on the primary computer and says its printing but its not printing. I can't pause, resume or cancel the job. If i then print a document from the primary computer it goes into the queue but it can't print because the first job (from the secondary machine) hasn't finished printing.

When i reboot the primary matching both jobs print before i log on to windows. The file is getting sent to the primary but won't print until i reboot. All sharing is turned on. I've checked all the settings listed in other posts and nothing helps. I can print from the primary machine with no problem as long as there isn't a job in the queue from the secondary machine.

Installed Printers Do Not Appear In Devices And Printers

I have five printers installed and all working from any of my programs; however, only one of these printers appears in "devices & printers". That is a problem because you cannot share a printer that is not recognized there. I have tried "add printer" numerous times and they do show up in my programs printer options, but they do not show up in "devices and printers". Any ideas?

No Printers Showing Up In Devices And Printers

Basically, i have installed a printer on my win7pro machine here. The printer can be printed to from various applications. However, the printer does not show up under devices and printers. The printer does show up under print management though.

Printer is an epson color stylus 2200 connected via usb.computer is a dell d620 laptop. Win7 was cleanly installed - no upgrade. The printer is visible (for example) from corel paint shop pro x2.

Anyone have any ideas what setting i need to set to enable printer visibility under devices and printers? Is there something else wrong here? Is this easily fixable?

Update: i just added a network shared printer (brother 7040 connected to a winxp machine) to this win7 laptop and it too is not visible under devices and printers. What is different here though is that this printer is also not visible under print management.

Printers Do Not Showing Up In Devices And Printers

I have just upgraded from vista home premium (x64) to windows 7 home premium. The upgrade went fairly well, but neither of my printers was working after the upgrade. The software warned me that the driver for my brother hl 1240 might be a problem, so i was not surprised there, but my hp business inkject 2230 also did not work.

Both initially appeared in devices and printers. But i deleted them and reinstalled them to get the upgraded drivers. As i did this i realized that i had misdirected the lpt ports to both printers. However, now the printers do not appear on the devices and printers screen, but do appear when accessed via other software. I need to delete them so that i can redirect output to the correct printer, but cannot find anyplace to delete them.

Printer Queue

Windows 7 printer is brother mfc-490cw. Has been working fine since i got the computer (approximately 1 month ago) and downloaded the win7 drivers from brother. Several days ago it stopped printing. When i open the printer it shows many files waiting to be printed (none of which i initiated), sometimes upward of 2000 to 3000. The files are in pairs "shockwave flash object" (. Spl) and . Shd files (. Spl). File sizes are always the same 1kb and 3kb respectively)i have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer software.

I have stopped the printer spooler, deleted the files in windows/sys32/spool/printers and restarted the spooler. I have checked the printer subsystem (http://social. Technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/w7itprohardware/thread/ff17456a-3339-4dd8-a0b3-607d1a02ea8b ) and all appears well. But it still will not print and the aforementioned files start reappearing almost immediately and every few minutes it adds a few more. After 5-6 hours there are several thousand of them. Any ideas?

Downloading Of Software Disappears

For the past few months whenever i go to download software from the internet or download a pdf file, they never show up. I get the download status window and it tells me that it is complete, but i always either download to my desktop or my documents and nothing ever shows up. I even do a search for the file and windows vista tells me it does not exist. This is getting very irritating and hoping that coming to this forum helps. I am not sure if it is a some setting that has changed or what. Looking forward to any help.

Cd/dvd Drive Disappears / Reappears

I seldom shut my pc down, usually put it to sleep. I'm running windows 7 - 64 bit on a gateway pc. Since installing win7, my dvd drive often does not show up on "my computer". I have to reboot, sometime a couple of times, in order to get it to show up again. The drive may show up and, when the pc comes back from sleep, it's gone. I read a couple of other posts about this that sounded
A bit different, i will appreciate knowing how to fix this issue other than having to reboot.

Flash Drive Is Recognized Then Disappears

I bought a lexar twistturn flash drive in december. It has functioned wonderfully with windows xp and vista, but my computer with windows 7 on it has given me problems. The computer is a compaq that came with windows 7 pre-installed. When i plug the flash drive into any of the usb ports, it is recognized and autoplay starts, but about ten seconds after the autoplay window opens, it closes and the flash drive is no longer recognized. This continues in a cycle for as long as i leave
The flash drive plugged in.

I have googled this problem to death, and have found no solution. I also contacted lexar tech support and was told that the problem is likely being caused by the pre-installed drivers. I have checked that my the os is up to date (it is), as well as trying to find drivers to re-install on the manufacturer's website. They may be there somewhere, but i have been unable to find them.
I'm pretty much at the end of my rope with this problem: please help?

Dvd Drive Disappears From My Computer After Sleep

On windows 7, running on an hp pavilion p6020a desktop pc, after waking from 'sleep', my dvd drive no longer appears (disappears from) 'my computer'. The drive still opens/closes, but will not launch autorun or be accessed via explorer or a command prompt.

I have already removed the upper/lower value registry items when running vista (and they are no longer appearing when viewed with regedit either).

Usb Fails / Disappears From Explorer And Cannot Be Reconnected

I have just installed the formal release, having played with the release candidate for several months. I had, and still have a problem with usb. When trying to copy to a usb disk, the system hangs after a very short time. The usb device in question disappears from windows explorer and cannot be reconnected. Switching to a different usb port results in the system failing to load a driver for the device saying it is not recognized.

The only option is a close down and reboot. As well as usb disks, i have this problem with an archos mp4 and an ipod. It makes the system quite unusable i'm afraid. I'm running on an intel quad system and apart from the above, and a missing co-processor driver, everything seems ok.

Minimize, Maximize And Close Button Disappears

For some reason the minimize, maximize and close buttons disappear on top of my windows. This is so for all applications. The buttons are not visible, but they still work. For instance, if i click in the top right corner of the application, the application will close.
 
I don't know what causing this. Sometimes it happens just after i started my pc. Sometimes it doesn't occur for over an hour. I've tried to detect the reason, but i wasn't able.
 
I've surfed the internet trying to find a solution, but couldn't find anything that works (they speak of nvidia drivers often, but there isn't a nvidia driver in my laptop. ) Does anyone have a solution for this problem?

Window Pane Issues - Mouse Disappears Into Background

Window pane issues: whenever i have multiple windows open & i move the mouse outside the window pane i am working with, it disappears into the background. Have recently upgraded to windows 7 from vista, and all is well apart from a minor issue regarding the window panes. Basically, whenever i have multiple windows open & i move the mouse outside the window pane i am working with, it disappears into the background & one of the other window pane's i have open appears instead.

This can be very frustrating especially when i am trying to use the customize box in the bottom right hand corner, as when i click the small arrow the box appears but when i move the mouse towards it, it disappears. Before, whenever i wanted to work on a particular window, i would move the mouse to the relevant window, click on it & all would be fine.

Now, whenever i move the mouse outside of the pane it moves to behind another window that is open. I now can only work with one window open! I'm sure this is probably a minor setting i need to adjust, but i just cannot find where in the settings.

Document Files Erased

I can't believe that i was so stupid to erase some of my document files, and then i like to have a "clean" recycle bin - so i think i erased and recycled almost half of the document files which hold all my research, document files and other very important and irreplaceable data. I've heard that data isn't really "gone" even if it's been erased. Is this true? And can someone please give me some direction as to how to resurrect my data?

Word Document Save Issue

We recently purchased a windows 7 system and transferred all of our word 2003 documents. I am able to access and edit all of them when they are saved on the desktop or in my documents folder. But, when i open the files that are saved on my "c" drive, the window name has "read-only" in it and i can't go in to edit them. I know this is probably a security setting somewhere (either in the word program or on my "c" drive). But i can't find it.

Problem Changing Document User Name

I recently purchased a used lap top with windows 7 home premium on it. I wanted to change all the settings so that there in my name. I was able to make myself the administrator and was also able to put the pc in my name. Now i'm just trying to change the name of my documents folder. At the moment when i open a program is says c:/user/michael. And my name isn't michael. I went and right-clicked on my documents and clicked properties. I then had a window pop up where i was able to change the name, but when i tried to press ok a window popped up that says, "error 0x80070057: the parameter is incorrect. " So i am unable to fix the name. I tried changing my permissions but its still not working!
 
To make my life even worse i tried to contact someone at microsoft and in order for this to be free for me i have to enter my identification code. I entered it and the website won't take it.

Error - Problem Prevented The Document From Being Scanned

A problem prevented the document from being scanned. Windows 7 - hp g4050 scanner. I have an hp g4050 that worked fine with vista. After upgrading to windows 7, i get the following error when scanning:a problem prevented the document from being scanned. Please try again, or for troubleshooting information, see help and support or the information that came with the scanner. I get a different error when attempting a preview.

It starts to preview the page, gets about 2 inches down the page and then i get the following error:an error occurred when setting the scanner properties. If another program is scanning, please wait for to complete and try again. I've downloaded the latest driver (and reinstalled it several times) from hp with no luck. No errors are logged in application events. I'm going nuts trying to figure this one out!

Only Recent Documents Are Showing Up In Document Libraries

Only recent documents are showing up in the document libraries and in searches. How do i change it back to the way it was? I've been using windows 7 for a few months now. Typically, when i select the documents library, everything in my "my documents" folder is displayed. Last week, only recently viewed documents started showing up there. If i use the drop down option and click on the "my documents" folder, i can again see all of my documents. However, all search utilities i've tried will only show results for documents i've viewed recently. Is there a setting i can adjust to fix this? I have tried removing and re-adding my "my documents" folder to the document library list, but that did not correct the problem. Thanks!

I was working on a document in wordpad and saved it before going to bed last night. When i re-opened the document today, it was returned to the condition it was in last night before i started working on it. The computer did shut down unexpectedly and when i reopened the file the changes i'd made prior to the shutdown had been recovered. I continued to work, saved my files, and shut down the computer. Please tell me, is it possible to restore the file to atleast the recovery point? I don't understand how the information was lost to begin with.

Hp Inkjet 2230 Printer - Print Jobs Stuck In Print Queue

Print jobs stuck in the print queue and will not print on windows 7 64-bit driver for hp business inkjet 2230 printer. I have installed the current hp universal printing pcl 5 driver on my windows 7 64-bit os. When i try to print a test page on my hp business inkjet 2230 printer (usb to parallel cable connection) the job hangs in the print queue. I can run the troubleshooter and purge the spooler but then i'm back where i started. The next print command will result in the same error.

This appears to have also been a problem with windows vista (64-bit). Suggestions to remedy the problem are welcomed.
