Well this issue must be related to the drivers of the printer, possibly incompatibility. Let's try to fix it with the easiest method.
First uninstall the driver after the printer is disconnected from the computer. Then run a registry cleaner (click here to download a freeware registry cleaner)
to clear any unwanted registry files. You'll also need to clean the system using the feature with this application.
Now download this driver Hplaserjet 2100 windows vista32
(if your system is 32 bit) or hplaserjet 2100 windows vista64
. Extract the files to a specific folder and follow the instructions as follows;
" , select "Settings/control panel
" and click the "Printers
Double-click "Add Printer
".or click "File
" on the menu and select "Add printer"
The "Add Printer wizard"
will open. Select "My computer"
then click "Next
(whether directly connected or networked) and click "Next"
Click "Have Disk"
The Locate file window will come up saying a: "is not accessible
" . Click "Cancel"
Under "Look in"
select the folder where the file is saved.
and click "Ok"
The Install from Disk window will reappear, click "Ok
Select "HP LaserJet 2100 Series PCL 6"
and click "Next
Select the "Replace existing driver"
option and click "Next
". (This window will not come up if the uninstaller was used).
Select Not Shared and click "Next
" and then click "Finish
Please don't skip even a step from the uninstall process. And do let me know when you are done.
Till then, Good luck.
