1. Make sure you have not installed any Service Pack before the downgrade.

2. Start 'Services.msc' from the command prompt or Run command and restart the print spooler service.

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.

I HAVE HP LASERJET 1018 PRINTER. I INSTALLED & SHARED PRINTER ON WIN XP BASED PC. NOW I WANT TO SHARE THIS PRINTER ON ANOTHER PC HAVING WIN SERVER 2003 OS. WHEN I AM INSTALLING THE SERVER ASKED FOR...


The drivers should be the same. When you share the printer, just make your Windows Server 2003 go to the computer with the printer shared by typing the IP address of the computer in the Run Box (Start > Run), for example \\192.168.1.100\. If your XP machine is set correctly, you should see the Printer and Faxes icon, or the printer icon. Double click on that and your printer will be installed with the drivers that XP uses (which are the same, just double checked) so you don't need to do any installing.

I try to print a document. I go to Print and click OK. Then the send fax menu comes up for no reason and will not let me print.


If you are using Windows XP, click start, click Printers and faxes, you would find your printer listed in that window, make sure that your printer icon is selected as the default printer, this issue occurs when the fax icon is selected as the default one, i.e you would have an icon for the same printer series that starts with 'Fax'. If that icon is selected you would face this issue when you try to print and you get the fax menu.
In Vista
click start, in the search bar type 'control printers' and then press enter, it would open the printers folder for you and check for the same as mentioned above.

Printer cannot communicate with printercommunicate


I would suggest:

Go to Printers and Faxes and delete your printer icon
Disconnect your printer's cable (connected to your PC)
Restart your PC
Reconnect the printer's cable
Your PC should see the printer and install the printer's driver software.

Hope this helps.

Bluetooth Icon disappered after downgrading from VISTA -->XP


the bluetooth light you see is associated with both wireless (WiFi) and Bluetooth radios being on or off.  This does not mean you have the bluetooth software installed. You'll need to go to http://support.dell.com and choose your system (or type your service tag when requested) and download the drivers for your bluetooth.

Furthermore, make sure you have Windows XP with Service Pak 2 or higher installed before installing any bluetooth software. :)

Icon has disappeared and error says printer spooler not running


This is because your spooler service has stopped on the PC.
If you have Win XP, click on start and click on Run.
Type services.msc and click Ok.
From the list, scroll down to Print Spooler.
Right click on this and click on Start or Restart.
Check if you have icon back or not.
