    Is the MS Fax software still installed?

  • Thomas F. Schneider May 11, 2010

    Do you have the fax driver and modem installed?
    Has it worked in the past and this is a new problem?
    Is the modem working on the telephone line?

If you have windows xp you can do it from comtrol pannel in add/remove programs on left side it says add or remove windows components. It can be installed from there. If you have a different windows you may have to use the original installation disk and when it comes up press repair installation it will reinstall what you are looking for.

My hp desk jet 4215 is on fax mode and wont print can you tell me how to fix it


When you install an all-in one printer it creates 2 icons under printers and faxes, one is for the printer and one for the fax. With the issue that you're having it could be that what's set to default is the icon for fax, that's why whenever you try to print something it pulls up a screen for fax. Just make sure that you have the printer icon highlighted when you print. To set the printer as the default: Go to your Start button on your computer and go to Printers and Devices (Printers and Faxes for Win XP), if you can't see that on the list, go to Control Panel instead and click on Printers and Devices (Printers and Faxes for Win XP). Right click on the icon of your printer and click on Set as Default Printer. If the icon for your printer is missing, it might have been removed/deleted, in that case, you have to uninstall and reinstall the software.

Dell Latitude D800-Win XP- My Dvd/rw wont write


Because you lost two devices, the DVD and the wireless mini card, I believe your problem is a drivers issue.
You should make sure you do not have any Malware that is removing these drivers.
If you have access to the Internet download and install Malwarebytes. It has a quick scan that will ID any infections.
Then get the newest drivers for those two devices from Dell's support site.
Before you install the drivers, remove those devices in Control Panel.

HP USB Modem does not break dial tone


If the information connected to your post is all correct (56k V90 usb), and you are using one line for both the internet and the fax, you should hang up from the internet before you try to dial out the fax.

You have not indicated your PC model, so I don't know what operating system you are using. For XP and newer versions, you have to set up and configure the fax using the wizard or configuration software. If you have not done that yet, you need to.

In xp, go to start, Programs , Accessories , Communication , Fax , and then click Fax Console.

You said your computer is new. Win 7 and Vista are much the same:

1.Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Windows Fax and Scan.

2.At the bottom of the left pane, click Fax, and then click New Fax on the toolbar to launch the Fax Setup wizard.

3.Click Connect to a fax modem and follow the instructions.


You also need to make sure that your fax/modem is correctly listed in the control panel. In XP, start, control panel, printers and devices. If you do not have a fax printer listed, you need to "install a local fax printer."

The installation wizard should work in both OS without much trouble. If you do have difficulty, Microsoft and adobe both have "virtual printers" you can use. Look in Microsoft office or online.

Also check control panel of 7 to make sure that your modem and fax are listed correctly. Thanks for using Fixya.

How to install hp laserjet p1505n network printer in windows 98


I can not find a win 98 driver for your printer on the HP website. DO yu have the instalation disk that was writen for win 98? If not try installing the printer through  the control panel. Either printers/fax or through install new hardware.The first being the preference. Some of the win OSs have printr drivers already installed.
If this does not work out, then the printer has no drivr available for that version of windows and you ewither have to upgrade to Xp or use a different printer which has a driver for win 98.

Hidden Program


In Windows 98 the MS fax client is installed as part of the windows messaging package and uses a mapi client like exchange client, outlook, or windows messaging to work. Try 'add/remove software' in the control panel and see if you can unistall windows messaging. If you have the win 98 install cd, there is a file called wmw-fax.txt in the tools/oldwin95/message/us folder. you might find the information in there.
