I have a Veratec desktop computer and am having all kinds of problems with it. It is one year old. Will not communicate with my dell printer A920 and is difficult to operate otherwise. Please help.


Well what operating system do you have on it? Windows7 doesnt like some printers. check online for print drivers and update them. Follow this link to help you with that... http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/kcs/document?c=us&l=en&s=gen&docid=DSN_FA36C542525D975EE030030ABD621881&isLegacy=true
you can also try this approach... First, let's make sure your computer has the latest Windows Updates, especially .net framework, needed to run many applications and the latest Java.

Disconnect your printer.


Download and run this patch (***WARNING*** The patch for this printer also removes other Dell applications, like Dell Dock, Dell QuickSet and other Dell applications)(These applications can be downloaded at Drivers & Downloads and can be reinstalled) to completely remove the printer from your computer. Run the patch(A MUST on Vista Machines) until it prompts you to restart your computer.


If using Windows 7 also try...Manual Printer Driver Removal


Restart your computer.


Download the proper drivers.


XP Drivers


Vista 32-bit Drivers


Vista 64-bit drivers


All other drivers


Install the proper drivers. You'll be prompted when to connect your printer(powered on)

***To install drivers, sometimes the file unzips and does nothing. You have to look for the setup.exe file, right click on it, then left click run as administrator***

If using Windows 7, use the Vista drivers in the compatibility mode.


Right click on the setup.exe file, left click properties, left click compatibility. Change the compatibility to Vista(Try Vista SP2). Then install the proper drivers. You'll be prompted when to connect the printer(powered on)

***To install drivers, sometimes the file unzips and does nothing. You have to look for the setup.exe file, right click on it, then left click run as administrator***


As for scanning, if you have the disk that came with the printer, then insert the Printer disk and stop it from running. Go to My Computer and double click on it. Look for the drive with the Dell disk in it. Right click on it, left click explore. Look for the OCR Folder. In the OCR Folder, there is an Abbyy Folder. right click on setup.exe, that's in the Abbyy Folder and left click run as administrator. This will install the OCR program.


Scanning

Scanning using USB connection, open the Dell All-In-One Center, click on scanning and copying and scan from there.

Scanning wirelessly, use the scan buttons on the printer.

How do I hook my computer to a Toshiba e-studio 3100c so I can print from compact discs?


That printer originally sold for $27 THOUSAND dollars.
At that price, it should be a "networked" printer.
So, connect your computer to the same network,
and use "Add Printers" to add this networked-printer to your list of printers.
Then, when you "print" (from Adobe Reader, or from MS Word, or from Microsoft Picture Viewer) you can select this printer as your "target" printer.

Printer shows ready, whenI send a print job to the printers it displays printing, but does not print. The unable to cancel or remove printing jobs.


Check if the printhead starts moving when powering on the printer. The problem might lie in the printhead electrical contact pints in which case clean it gently. Alternatively replace the print cartridge where at least black ink is present. If these are OK but it wont pull in the paper then the rollers might be jammed. If its a laser printer,check by changing the tober cartridge amd post the result as a comment.........sodeep

Can't reinstall printer- ''print spooler is not working''


If you have the windows disk for it , Save everything important to disks.  Put WIndows  disk into machine and tell it to install. It will find you version and ask if you wish to repair it, Say yes.   If you have Xp pro just "Restore" computer to the date before the problem started. If you have neither one. Save you work and then reinstall everything using your backup disks.

Iv got a problem with my f2100 it wont print and the disk wont down load my nane is james


Have you tried uninstalling the printer, disconnecting all of the wires, then rebooting the machine?

If you will try that, then once you have a clean restart, put the disc ina nd reinstall the software. DONT HOOK UP the Printer until the installer tells you to.

Than you should be just fine.

We have the lexmark x1100 series and it will not print or scan. we disconnected the usb cord from both ends, restarted the comp. and reconnected the usb. still nothing. Then we tried to uninstall the...


Go to start>run. Type msconfig. Click on the Services Tab. Look for lexbce server in the list. Check it if it's not started or uncheck it if it is.

Go to control panel>printers and faxes. Double-click the lexmark printer icon and check if there are documents in queue. if there are jobs waiting to be done. right click each and delete them. Wait until they are clear. If it doesnt clear out even after a long time, restart the computer. Try to print afterwards.

If this doesn't work, try adding the printer again. Go to control panel>printers and faxes. Click on 'add a printer' on the left pane. Make sure 'Automatically Detect and Install my Plug and Play Printer' is checked. It should detect the printer is it is connected and turned on. Otherwise, try connecting it to another usb port or to another computer. If possible try using another usb cable or installing a known good printer to the computer to check if the cable or printer is bad.
