If you are having problem with your printer, do the following:

Check all connections first (if necesary replace the cables)

Be sure the printer is ON

Go to Printers Folder (Start >> Control Panel >> Printers) And be sure your printer status is marked as "READY"

Go to printer folder and Cancel all pending printer documents (queue)

Turn off your printer
Turn off your computer

Turn on both and try again

How can i get to command prompt in dos through bios?


Sorry but basically you cant access command propmt through the bios. The command prompt is part of the operating system of the pc, either as DOS (disk operating system) or part of windows.
The BIOS (Basic Input output system) which is on a rom(read only memory) chip on the mother board, and initiates post(power on self test) when the computer starts, without the bios the computer would not boot up at all. To access the command prompt you must have a operating system installed, ie Windows. hope this helps.

(net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED):


This is almost certainly a Domain Name Server (DNS) problem. Typically when you surf the internet you type in the URL of a website and the DNS assigned to handle your computer's queries translates that name into an IP address. These IP addresses are usually obtained from the closest relevant Router Gateway, which in most cases is provided and maintained by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Try opening a simple command prompt (assuming you're using Windows) by opening the Start menu and typing "cmd" into the search field at the bottom of the menu, then pressing "Enter."

Once you have the command prompt open, simply type the following: "ping 127.0.0.1" and wait while your Network Interface Card (NIC) or Wireless NIC performs the standard loop-back test to see if your networking hardware is functioning correctly. If it is working correctly, you should get four consecutive "replies" printed out in your command prompt window. If the loop-back test fails, try opening another command prompt, but this time right-click on the search result and "Run As Administrator." Then run the command "sfc /scannow," which will check your TCP/IP stack (part of Windows) and attempt to repair whatever part is damaged.

If the problem persists, check your drivers by right-clicking on "My Computer" or "This PC" and then left-clicking "Manage." A window will open with a variety of administrator tools on the left-hand side--click on "Device Manager" and see if there is a problem with your NIC/WNIC's driver(s). At this point you can try to let Windows automatically search for a driver to fix your connectivity issues by right-clicking on the yellow exclamation point and selecting "Update Driver."

I've attached a few screenshots to help guide you through the processes detailed above. If all else fails you can attempt to manually enter the DNS IP addresses provided free of charge by Google, which are "8.8.8.8" and "8.8.4.4," respectively.

Computer not recognizing printer


Printers drivers will sometimes lock the queue. uninstall the printer from the system and reinstall. if you cannot reinstall and get spool errors try this:

hold the windows key down and hit r on the keyboard.
in this window type in cmd and hit enter.
in the command prompt type

sc config spooler depend= RPCSS

if you can't uninstall read this article to manually remove a printer in windows

Emachines W6409 that restarts over and over


Have you done any work inside the casing lately? Removing /installing or anything inside the casing?

If you have, check to make sure there are no wires touching the metal casing, or rubbing up against something inside the computer, that shouldn't be.

My brother recently had this problem. I hope this helps at least some. Good luck!

XP SP3 sends docs to print que but nothing prints


Open up your print queue. Cancel All jobs.

Go to the start menu and either click on, or search for cmd. This will open the command window. You also need to open your task manager.

In the task manager, search for a process called spoolsv.exe, or if that doesn't exist, find a process with "spool" in the name. This is your print spooling process. Right click the process, and end it. You can close the task manager now.

Next, go to the command prompt. Type "net start spooler" without the quotes, and hit enter. This should restart your spooling process. Close the command window, and try to print.

If this doesn't work, you should check to make sure you're printing to the correct printer. If it doesnt solve the problem, uninstall your current printer (you may have to end the spoolsv.exe process again), and reinstall the drivers for your particular model, which you can find at the manufacturers website.
