Network Printer Cannot Connect

Its for my homegroup network with both computers running windows 7 (pc is on 64bit and laptop is on 32bot). I can print from the pc where the printer (epson) is connected via usb but i can't print from my laptop through the network. The homegroup works fine enough, i can access files through it. I thought originally it was pharos that was upsetting the computer (installed very very poorly and finally days later managed to get every sign of it off the laptop) - but now i get the printer being found but it won't connect!

I've been though a couple of other threads but none of it seems to work. The file and printer sharing has always been connected (as my brother from his xp computer can print to my printer) and the firewall lets it through. Is there any other way? The permissions are set to print for everyone so its not that either. Does anyone know how i can get my laptop access to print?

Cannot Connect To Network Folder Or Printer After Update

Suddenly after february update i cannot access the network folders, our network printers with my windows 7 machine and the logon script is not running because its on a shared folder. After a late night trying different solutions i did a system restore to a date before the update and it work directly after reboot.

Some time later the updates is reinstalled and the problems is back. When i try to connect to a computer or server in the network by typing computername or ipadress in file explorer i get the error 0x0004005 and also all my network printers are offline.

Internet access and all other access is possible, i can connect to other computers with remote desktop and from them connect to shared folders on my local win 7 pc. What the heck has happened? I also tested all the network trouble shooting guides but they find nothing.

Unable To Connect To Print From Network Printer

After upgrading to windows 7, unable to connect to homegroup & not able to print from network printer. Windows 7 upgrade from vista loses network connectivity to windows xp, and mac osx computers and can't connect wireless network printer. Hi, i have recently upgraded my laptop from windows vista to windows 7. While working in vista i had access via a network named mshome to our other windows xp laptops and 2 macs running osx as well as our network laser printer (lexmark c530dn).

Now my laptop can't see the other laptops or macs but can still print to our network printer, and obviously access the internet. I'm guessing that i'm going to have to setup a new network in order to see our other machines. In addition, i have recently purchased a wireless multifunction inkjet printer (lexmark s400 series). The xp laptops and osx machines can print etc. While my windows 7 laptop won't.

The software is installed, latest drivers downloaded, and the printer status is ready but it won't even print a test page. If anyone could give me some advice about the best way to set up a new workgroup (or reconnect to our old one) and get my new printer working i would be really grateful. As you can imagine, i'm now more than a little frustrated with it.

Cannot Connect Vista Network Printer On Win 7

I have a vista home premium network (32 bit) with 3 laptops and a desktop that has a canon mp520 printer attached to it. This is a networked printer and works fine with all networked pcs.
I recently upgraded one of the laptops to windows 7 (32) bit and could no longer print from this laptop. When i try to add the canon mp520 network printer i can see it in the select printer dialogue, however when i select it i receive an error "operation failed with error 0x00000002

The other pcs still work fine when printing to the network printer.

I also tested the printer locally on the windows 7 laptop and it works fine as a local printer.
The computer name where the printer is attached locally is called 'family-pc" and the printer name is "canon7".

I tried to define the network printer on the laptop as a local printer by defining a new local port for it and entering the printer network address, "family-pccanon7" however i receive an "access is denied" error.

I have disabled the public, domain and private firewalls on teh windows 7 laptop as well and this has not allowed me to attach a network printer either. I have also created a new user on the laptop with the same results.

Can't Connect To Printer From List Of Printers Available

Windows can't connect to a printer i selected from a list of printers available. How do i get it to connect? We have two new computers, vista ultimate and windows 7 pro. (64bit) machines that join a domain when they log in. The first machine (vista) has a new usb printer installed and shared while logged in as domain admin. For the shared drivers it has 64 bit drivers (also asked to install x86 drivers if i select that driver type, but since only 64 bit machines will use this printer i left it unchecked).

On the second machine (logged in as domain admin), i add the printer (find printer by name or tcp/ip address: browse for printer - selected it from the list). It comes back with a message "couldn't connect to the printer. Check the name and try again. I tried to add it using the the select shared printer by name: ip address printer name, but i get the same message.

I am able to connect the second computer (windows 7) to a network printer (with internal nic) connected directly to the network but these other printers belong to other departments. How do i get computer 2 (7) to print to computer 1 (vista).

Cannot Connect Win 7 64-bit To Shared Win 2000 Printer

My windows 7 64bit machine would like to use the laserjet 2100 on a win 2000 professional machine. On the win 2000 machine, the "additional drivers" dialog does not include win 7 (nor even xp). I can share the printer from an xp professional system. Is there any way to get a driver for win 7 64-bit onto the win 2000 machine or otherwise get win 7 to use the printer?

Cannot Connect To 32-bit Shared Printer From Win 7 64-bit

I'm running win2003 server (32-bit) and sharing a lexmark printer. I can't connect my 64-bit win7 pro client to the printer. I know the share is ok and my rights are fine because i can print from winxp clients using the same login.

Win7 Can't Find Printer Port For Usb Printer

I have a canon pixma mp780 printer. It is a usb printer. I downloaded the latest driver, which is supposed to be specifically for windows 7. Windows installed the driver with no problems, but it is having trouble locating the printer port. I have the cable connected on both the pc and the printer. I have tried unplugging and re-plugging them both, as well as restarting the machine. The window for finding the printer port has the following message:

"Caution! Cannot detect the printer port. Check that the printer is on and that the cable is connected. If the port has not been detected even though it is connected, disconnect the cable from the printer and then reconnect it. "

I am at a loss as to what to do next. The window claims it will close once it finally detects the printer port. I have tried to plug the printer into different usb ports in hope that one of them would finally be recognized, but so far it has been to no avail. Do i need to reboot? Is there anything else i can do? I didn't have any problems when i was using windows xp, so i'm sure it is a windows 7 issue.

Installed Printer Drivers Stacked Under One Printer Icon

If 2 printer drivers for the same printers is installed, eg a postscript and a pcl driver, both printers are stacked under the one printer icon, and you only know that two separate drivers are installed if you right click on the printer icon, and only at that point does it show that two separate printer drivers have been installed. Is there a way to unstack the two printers so they show as two separately installed printers ?
