    Can you get access to something like PrimoPDF and send the document to that (via the printer)?

You need Adobe Acrobat Professional or Adobe Indesign in order to export or convert your documents to PDF format. There are several ways to do it, you can even use Adobe PDF printer and create PDF versions of anything you print.

10 reasons why PCs crash-You must know tip 7

7 Printers

The action of sending a document to print creates a bigger file, often called a postscript file.

Printers have only a small amount of memory, called a buffer. This can be easily overloaded. Printing a document also uses a considerable amount of CPU power. This will also slow down the computer's performance.

If the printer is trying to print unusual characters, these might not be recognised, and can crash the computer. Sometimes printers will not recover from a crash because of confusion in the buffer. A good way to clear the buffer is to unplug the printer for ten seconds. Booting up from a powerless state, also called a cold boot, will restore the printer's default settings and you may be able to carry on.

I can't create custom document sizes anymore since upgrading to Dell Optiplex 760. My printer is hp laserjet 4250n. Both pc and printer are networked.

from what i know you need to have the postscript driver to create custom size docs. When you printing open your printer driver and choose custom paper size:) try the hp website and download the latest driver from their website and tell those punks to give you admin rights:)

How do you down load email addresses from your computer, to install on a new computer?

I have put details of copying over addresses and the emails for both Outlook express and Outlook.Hope this helps.

Outlook Express
In Outlook Express, select File --> Export and select Address book. I recommend that you use a comma-separated values (CSV) format as it's more portable and can be recovered if something happens since it's just a basic text file. Copy that onto the new computer, choose File --> Import, and select the CSV file. That should do it!
Backing up email is more difficult, however.
Here's the basic process in Outlook Express: Under Tools --> Options, click the "maintenance" tab. This will tell you where your email is stored. Now copy all of those files onto your new computer (if you make a CDROM you'll have a nice permanent backup too) and then put them in the exact same folder on the new system (while you aren't running Outlook Express). Restart the app and you should have all your mailboxes intact.
Outlook does have an appropriate archive/restore function too, if you want to try that instead. Under File, select Import/Export. Select "export to a file," then select the mailbox that you want to back up. If your mailboxes are like mine, this will produce a fairly large file, depending on the size of your mailbox. Copy these exported files onto the new computer, then use File --> Import/Export --> Import from a file and you should have the mailboxes on your new system.
You'll have to export the Address Book from the computer then import it into Outlook on the new computer
1) On your desktop click File --> Export --> Address Book
2) Select the Comma Seperated Values (Windows) as your output format
3) Select the folder you want to export - in this case Contacts
4) Type a name for your file - example: addresses
5) Be sure there is a checkmark next to Export then click Finish
This is the important part: You'll need to copy or save the file to a flash drive or floppy. Alternatively, you can email the file to yourself or burn on CD if you don't have a floppy or flash drive available. Either way the file needs to be transfered to your new laptop.
1) On your laptop open Outlook and click File --> Import --> Import from another file or program (this varies depending on your version of Outlook)
2) Select Comma Seperated Values (Windows) - the same option you selected when you exported
3) Click Browse to retrieve the file you exported
4) Choose either replace, not to duplicate or duplicate under the options menu
5) Select destination folder - since this is your address book you would click Contacts
6) Be sure there is a checkmark next to Import then click Finish

Lights flash and wont print

May be this could help you:

1. Disconnect the communications cable to the printer.
2. Uninstall any other printers connected to the computer following the direction provided by the printer manufacturer. Restart the computer after uninstalling any other printers, then proceed to step three to backup the entire Windows registry.
3. Click Start and then click Run.
4. Type regedit into the Open box, and then click OK. The registry editor will appear.
5. In the Registry Editor, select My Computer.
6. In Windows 98, Me, or 2000, click Registry, and then click Export Registry.
In Windows XP, with My Computer highlighted, click File, and then Export.
7. Browse to a storage location that is easy to remember.
8. Under Export Range, select All.
9. Type in a filename. HP suggests naming the file with the current date, for example: Registry Backup 04-01-06.
10. Click the Save button to save the registry.
11. Locate and click the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControl... NT x86\Drivers.
12. Click the plus (+) beside any Version-x subkeys (where x is a number). Under the Version-x entries, right-click any references to printers (do not remove any software references such as Adobe PDF Distiller or Active Touch Document Loader) that were installed on the computer, and then click Delete. Confirm the deletion.
13. Below this key, locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControl... key and click the plus (+) beside Monitors.
14. Several print monitors subkeys will be listed. Some are the default print monitors for the standard ports. These are the:
BJ Language Monitor
Local Port
PJL Language Monitor
Standard TCP/IP Port
USB Monitor
LPR Port may or may not appear.
Do not delete any of the print monitors listed above. Delete any print monitor subkey other than those listed above by right-clicking them and then clicking Delete.
15. Locate and click the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControl... and then click Spooler in the list of services to highlight it.
16. In the right pane, some data will be listed. Data string that begins with DependOnService.
If the data field of DependOnService contains lexbces, Right click DependOnService and select Modify. Delete the value lexbces and enter RPCSS. After the data value has been changed, click OK.
* If the data field of DependOnService contains any other value (usually RPCSS), continue to the next step.
17. Close the registry editor and then restart the computer.

This is an excellent solution for HP printers, but if your printer is not HP, then you will need to substitute everything about "HP" for your printer manufacturer.

I am trying to print to adobe to convert to a pdf file. I am receiving an error stating Prodcut name: distiller Warning: Script-cannot be embedded beacuse of font file error. Error: undefined; offending...

You probably have Adobe reader which will allow you to read an Adobe document but not write a pdf file. For that you have to buy Adobe Acrobat. There are, however, free packages that will convert a file into pdf format. Try googling for "convert a file into pdf" or something similar.

Receipt too long

According to the printer manual
the length of the receipt is set by your POS software only the width is set in the printer to make sure all the letters fit, or wrap to the next line if needed
There must be some settings in the software that allow headings or other text in what is now a blank space.
Instead of Blanks, there must be an 'off' selection for those items (logo motto operator name etc) and a length for a 'cutoff margin'
cant tell you
don't know the software used
try google for 'configure receipt printing in "software"'

QuarkXPress 6.0 Passport - it works initally but when I temporarily leave the program and then go back to it it always freezes and I have to force quit.

If you are really using the 6.0 version the first thing you're going to want to do is download and install a free update to the latest maintenance release of QuarkXPress 6. I think it's QuarkXPress 6.53 and you can get it from You may have to upgrade through multiple versions to get there i.e. install the update to 6.5 and then up to 6.53 after that.
