Hi Donna. The properties of your hard drive shown when you open Computer (My Computer in Windows XP) help you to see your used and free space. Even though your hard drive has a capacity of 160 GB, useable space is always less because the operating systems were designed to allocate a percentage of the total to be used for various operations necessary for smooth sailing. Right clicking the hard drive icon and selecting properties opens to you tools used to keep your hard drive healthy along with information regarding the hard drives % of use. Try it out if you haven't already. Good Day
3.5" Hard Drive
windows - start - control panel - administration - computer administration - hard drive administration - resize your C drive to bigger capacity, but first resize D drive to smaller capacity to free a space for C drive enlarge, then apply setting, reboot, my computer drive C right click - propertis- service - defragmentation and same operation and chek it for errors
Apart from the obvious that the printer might be faulty, have you tried updating the driver software on the pc?
What operating system are you running? Is it Windows XP? Another thing is to check the disk space on the pc. If there is no spooling space, it might cause this. If Windows XP, go to start button, my computer and right mouse click the hard drive symbol and select properties. That wll show you how much free space there is. If there is little or no free space, you have to delete some files Eg pictures or things you might no longer need. Also try to test the printer on another pc if you can. That way you can tell if it's a printer or pc related fault. Rgds,
