The XPS1530 uses Vista so go to the control panel and choose the port that you have the external monitor connected to. I use an HDMI cable and need to choose both the audio and video separately in the control panel.
to install shared printer first you have install printer in a desktop or laptop. after that share the printer. for that go to printers and faxes ? right click share the printer. give a name to identify the printer. Go to other system open network places ?entire network open system which you installed printer > open printers folders and right click on printer name select connect. If you cannot access system from network places. type ip address of system (in which printer is installed) on where you want to install printer. ex: in run > type //192.168.0.25 and press enter and open printers folder and right click on printer and connect
It would not be possible since AIM share desktop only runs in windows environment. if you would be doing a system recovery, the contents of the HDD will be refreshed meaning it would run starting outside of windows.
On the desktop machine - go to the printers folder, right click the
icon for the Laserjet and choose sharing (enable print sharing). You
should be able to name the printer and make it accessible to anyone
within the workgroup. If needed you can run the network setup wizard to change the workgroup names on both machines.
On the laptop go to add new printer and choose network printer, you
should be able to browse to the desktop machine by name and choose the
Laserjet as a printer (whether you want it to be the default is up to
you). The laptop will download and install the drivers from the desktop
pc to the laptop and set the correct network path automatically.
It goes without saying that the desktop machine must be on in order to print from the laptop in this scenario.
You have to turn printer sharing on in vista by going to your network map and turn the printer sharing on. This should FixYa! Network Map is located in Network and Sharing Center on the computer with vista.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help. Try the following:
On your laptop with Vista, click start, then network from the right side. This will take you to the Network Screen. Click on the Network and sharing screen. Click on options such as file sharing, printer sharing etc. Make sure that you can see each device your your network. If you can't you must go to each PC and use the network options on the XP machines. It's pretty simple, just follow the instructions that the wizard provides.
I hope this gets you up and running. Thanks for using Fixya.com
You need to go into the machine that manages the printer and allow the access denied machine access or to share printer. You may have to run the network setup wizard in order for the machines to recognize each other.
