Hi Goody2Shoes6, what a great nickname!

If the boxes are a rectangle for every letter, try changing the font, especially if the printer is an old model and the font is recent, if it does it for every font, type up a letter (or type =rand(3) in word and it will put some blurb up for you) then press the Alt key at same time Print Scrn key. Then open paint and go to edit menu / paste. go File Print preferences and set the page to 1 by 1 pages, File / Print preview, if good Print.

The printer should print it, as it is taking it as a picture file, if that same font won't print straight from word (and gives you little squares) it means the printer doesn't have that font listed in it's memory

If it is the case, buy a new printer, or use an older font that works.

:-)

I cannot get my document printed. when i try to print I get the message printer is busy then , another message that states a printing error occurred appears


Open Notepad and type the following lines:
net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl
net start spooler

Save it in your root directory as: C:\DeletePrintJobs.cmd
Create a shortcut for it and move it to your Desktop

Now everytime you have print job(s) that got stuck in the print queue
go to your desktop and Double Click on the DeletePrintJobs.cmd

It will clear all pending print jobs in the print queue and allow you to
print new jobs again.

One microsoft word has problem printing


This usually happens when your printer cartridge is almost empty. (Especially in inkjet printers) But to be sure, you can try to print a couple of pages with notepad, if the problem continues, you can try to clean the printer cartridge (Most of the printers has this function installed, you can go to the Control Panel -> Printers -> Right Click your printer -> Properties -> Maintenance or so), If the problem continues, you can try a new cartridge. But if the problem is with the Microsoft Word, the Microsoft Word itself can be reinstalled or a new updated printer driver can be searched online for correcting this problem.

Every time I try to print the dreaded yellow error box comes up.


Hello,

Are you using the "same" printer with your 2 PC? or 2 different printers?

If you're using the same printer, check your cables, power supply, drivers, inks, and lifetime of the printer.

If your using 2 different printer you might have a virus in you pc.

New Vista Computer wont print last line, XP no problem


Using the print or printer setup (I can remember what is actually written) from within word. ensure that the print margins are not to small and cutting off your words, or if the print is appearing close to the edge of the paper when you print, you maybe outside the range of the prints ability to print that close to the edge of the page in whice case you would increase your margins in the print setup (ie from .125 to .375 or .50)

Cannot print


Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

I am not aware of how to get the printer to print documents off the computer.


No problem. Have you installed a printer? I assume so. All Windows programs are the same. you see the words on the tool bar? click on the file. A menu pops up Click print then ok. if your are using the internet explorer you will pring the web page. If your in word you will print the document.. This is printing. If you need more help please let me help you ;)

Hi, I am using ms word 2007 and need an a3 sheet format. Its not in the page set up drop down menu and the only solution I have is to customise my page size. Even doing this however, and increasing my...


The print sizes available are dependent on the printers installed.
If you don't have an a3 printer installed on your computer, there won't be a A3 option in word.
if you install a standard pdf printer like cutePDF(simulates printer, but instead of printing document on paper, it generates an adobe pdf-file from the document) the option should become available in your dropdown.
