Question about Computers & Internet

Since I purchased a new laptop running Vista, I can no longer print PDF files. Everything else prints perfectly. I assume the problem lies with Vista, but with no response from Microsoft do you have any ideas please? Rosemary

    I am using Adobe Acrobat 8 to open pdf files. Nothing happens when I hit Print except for box that says no can do, printer inaccessable or words to that effect. I have tried all printer options available.

    Thanks heaps Joed911. Your suggestion fixed my problem. I downloaded Foxit and I was able to print my pdf file immediately. After weeks of frustration I can now get on with my work. Thanks again.

This sounds interesting.
Does nothing happen or does the print job sit there not being printed?
When you try to print the pdf have you checked to make sure it is going to the correct printer and not something like the Microsoft XPS Document Writer?
Can you open a pdf on this system to view it? If so, do you know what program you are using?

ES9410 - PDF jumbled printing


Assuming you are using MS Windows then install FoxIT pdf reader which allows command line printing on Windows. Go to http://www.foxitsoftware.com/ to get it. Make sure your OKI printer is the default.

Once installed you can print using the command, from my dusty memory -

Reader.exe /p MyFile.pdf

I don't use Windows any longer, now exclusively Linux, so I might be mistaken.

Cheers, Martin

Please help me :(


Hello, you should uninstall the old 'printer' and old drivers, turn off your popup blocker, and reinstall the printer with the new Vista drivers for seres X2310, X2330, X2350.>>> Driver Download <<<
Click the link for a page with several driver options for Vista.

Print this page to a PDF file and save to your desktop for reference until you can print paper documents.

If you do not have a PDF print program, http://www.bullzip.com/ has a FREE (TOTALLY) WARE program for VISTA. I have installed, tested and yes, it works.

You may need to access the Run Command to initiate printing.
How to Access the Run Command in Microsoft Windows Vista Background

The Run command, which was available in the Start menu of Windows 2000 and Windows XP, is not visible in Windows Vista.

Accessing the Run command in Windows Vista

Most keyboards have a Windows key, usually located between the Ctrl and Alt keys. If you hold down the Windows key and press 'R', a Run prompt will appear.

This may be useful if you need to start msconfig in order to limit start items, or msinfo32 to gather system information files (files with a .nfo extension).


Msconfig has added a Tools section. Several common tasks can be managed from here, including Regedit, Event Viewer, System Information, Command Prompt, and Task Manager. To open one of these tasks, highlight the task and click Launch.

Wireless printer


it sounds as if the printer may not be set as the default printer, so check in the installed printers and check and also check that the printer you are sending the print to is the setup one and not a pdf or microsoft office document printer, this is found on the drop down box when the print option appears. i am also assuming that the printer has worked before from vista to an xp machine as sometimes xp needs a small update to be used with a vista pc on the network
