  • laur12 Nov 14, 2007

    I tried going to the start menu then to run and going to the services menu. When I tried to start the print spooler, an error came up saying that it "Could not start the Print Spooler Service on Loncal Computer. Error 1075: The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion."

    What is my next step?

HP Office Jet 4630 E-All in One. Installing to print from 2 computers via wireless network. Wont print from 2nd computer.

It's some kind of communication error. I would suggest uninstalling the printer from the second computer. Also, make sure you go to the website for that printer and download the latest driver that was designed for Vista 32bit. If you are using the included software disc it may not have the latest driver updated that fixes this problem.

Computer unable to communicate with wireless printer


If you can't connect to your wireless printer, you may have the wrong driver installed. Printer drivers are updated when new versions of operating systems are released, or when security updates are necessary. If you're trying to connect a new wireless printer, check the manufacturer's website to find out if a new driver has been released for your model number and operating system.

Download the latest print driver to your desktop. Print drivers allow the computer and printer to communicate, so the wrong driver will make connectivity impossible.

Go to "All Programs" in the Start menu. Find your wireless printer and right-click to select "Uninstall." The driver will be uninstalled. Close out the programs window.

Double-click the new driver on your desktop to unzip and install it. This should take only a second, and you may not see any dialog box or pop-up menu.

Open a document and choose "File" and "Print." The print dialog box will open.

Click "Add a printer." The add printer wizard will begin. Browse to the driver you just installed and select it when prompted.

Print the document you opened. It should print to the wireless printer. You can click the "Make default printer" box before you print if you want.

Install the driver in the same manner on all the other network computers. You can copy the driver onto a flash drive and copy it from computer to computer to avoid downloading it multiple times.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

No communication between printer and laptop

Power down the printer and disconnect the cord connecting printer and laptop. If the printer is wireless, unpair the bluetooth link between printer and laptop. Remove printer and all drivers for printer. Go to manufacturer website for printer and download latest drivers. Restart computer. During the restart of the computer, power up printer. Once the computer is back and loaded to the desktop, reconnect printer. Make sure once the New Hardware Wizard pops up, you locate where you downloaded the drivers and complete the install.

Computer will not communicate with printer

Ckeck in control panel & se if the driver software installed. It should be listed in Add/remove programs. If it is, power up the piinter & load windows Vista update service. See if Vista has any patches for you're printer. If no, goto Lexmark & go to the driver section for you're P4350 printer software for Vista. While in Vista update, install any updates listed.
Click on the link provided.
Creat a folder on you're desktop & down load the latest driver software in-to the folder you created. Uninstall any Lexmark software that might have been in add/remove programs. Install the driver software you downloaded. If all this still fails, call Lexmark since this is a new printer. The number should be in you're manul. Or you can go here for free support.,6959,204816596_652569481_0_en,00.html
