Go to services and make sure the Print spooler and RPC services are started
Go to start-control panel-printer and faxes and make sure the printer is showing as ready and has a tick mark on it. You can right click on the printer and set it as default printer.

Go to the printer properties and make sure there is no print in the queue.

If even after this the printer is not communicating, uninstall and reinstall the printer. If you need any further help let me know.

Thanks.

How do i connect my hp deskjet f380 to my hp workstation xw4100


Did you load the printer drivers? Simply connecting a printer to the machine will not get it to operate. Each printer comes with software that must be installed to get the printer to work the computer. If you need drivers, you can go to the HP website support and download them.

I have a dell computer and a 966 printer. when i try to print something is wont let me. It say printer spooler not running.


Hello,

That's because you may have a corrupted printer drivers.

1. Power printer off
2. Un-install printer (deleting printer is also ok)
3. reboot computer
4. Power the printer
5. Reinstall software

If you still have problems then repeat steps but do not use driver software from CD; instead download the latest one from manufacturer's web site.

Good luck

Printer wont connect to the computer


Go to add a printer and tell it you want to add a local printer. It will probably fail. You will then have to select the manufacture and the model or browse to where the drivers are installed.

Make sure you have the appropriate drivers installed. Visit the manufacturer's website, find the model of your printer, and download and install the drivers. They may also be on the disk that came with your printer.
