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.

Lock Memory Privilege

I'm trying to decide on which version of 7 to get and have a few questions. I'm leaning towards 7 pro 64 bit but concerned about compatibility issues with software and hardware drivers. I think i'll be ok with most of my software working but i'm concerned about drivers for things like graphics cards and other drives. Any thoughts?

 Which one of the windows 7 versions support the ability to change the lock memory pages setting? I know that vista premium did not support changing this.

Delay In Caps Lock Key

I've recently moved from a computer with vista to one with windows 7. There's a noticeable delay in the operation of the caps lock key, whether toggling on or off. For example, if i'm typing and the cursor is on the screen, and i inadvertently hit caps lock, the cursor goes away for a couple of seconds, i get a caps lock icon in the lower right of my screen, and i can't type nor toggle the caps lock key again until the cursor comes back. On the old vista computer, this was essentially intantaneous. Is this built into windows 7, and can i make a settings change or a tweak to change this?

Cannot Lock Laptop Using Win+l Key Through Keyboard

I have an acer laptop running windows 7 ultimate.connected to this laptop is usb splitter to connect external keyboard and mouse for easy desktop use. Within the past 2-3 weeks, i can no longer lock the laptop using win+l through the laptop keyboard, but can using the usb keyboard. It's the oddest thing. I've unplugged the keyboard, waited for the machine to signal it has been disconnected, and still failed. Also tried rebooting with no luck. Anyone ever heard or seen of anything like this before?

Win7 Lock Disables Monitor Shut Off

I worked with medical records, and i found a screen lock that also disabled the task manager, but that feature doesn't work with 7. I tried using 7's built in lock feature, but my monitors don't shut off at the 5 minute idle time setting i've set. When i use the old lock, the monitors go off after being idle, even when i have my tv card running underneath.

I tried searching to see if others have reported that problem here, but i didn't come up with anything. Has anyone run into this problem and come up with any work-arounds or fixes?

Computer Will Freeze, Lock Up During Game Play

So i just bought a new gaming desktop this year. It was $1300 and i'm very disappointed, i bought 500gb of hard drive space and only 9 out of my 46 games work with it. Mostly because a lot of the games were made before 1998. I'm only asking about 3 of the games that i've managed to get working: civilization 3, civ 3 play the world, and civ iv/beyond the sword.

Problem: all of the games start and will play normally but at certain times during the game-play the computer will freeze, lock-up, or just kick me out of the game for no reason. It happens at different times in each game. In civilization 3, i can play fine for the most part but if i accidentally scroll too fast on the map it just locks-up or freezes and i have to shut it down with the task manager. In civilization 3:play the world i can play to the end of a game with no problems but as soon as it switches to the results screen after the game it kicks me out to a black screen and then i have to go into the task manager to turn it off and start over.

In civ iv, about halfway through any game it will just shut down everything and take me back to windows. There doesn't seem to be any particular action that triggers it. As far as i know these games should be compatible with vista, could these issues have something to do with the operating system hogging too much memory? 

Hope to get an answer soon, it will save me many headaches trying to fix this alone.

Comp specs: (if you need more of these let me know)
-Windows vista home premium 64-bit
-2gb ram

Hp Photosmart C4280 Device Failed With Errors

Local printing to the hp photosmart c4280 all-in-one device fails with errors in the error 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.

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 ?

Installed Printer Missing From Printer List

Win7 home premium 64-bit. I installed an old zebra eltron printer that i use for shipping labels. Since my hp computer has no parallel ports, i had to use a buslink usb to parallel cable to get the printer installed. I found that the 64-bit vista drivers worked and the printer works as normal.

Now i need to adjust some settings on the printer, yet when i pull up the hardware/printer page, the printer is missing! It's probably hidden behind the ieee1284 controller (that is listed on the hardware page) but the printer itself is not on this page. How do i find this 'missing' printer?
