Re: printing,hp deskjet3420

Hi Malcom,

The HP3420 is connected to your PC through the USB port and not through the LPT1/parallel port.

You have to change the port setting. Go to Start, Printers, right click on HP3420, click on Properties, go to the Ports tab, check/select USB, OK.

Alternately, you may have to re-install the drivers for the HP3420 and allow the program to Search for the printer connection. Clicking on the button Stop Searching will auto install it again to LPT1.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

try this one i think it can help your problem.

at Start menu you can see printers and faxes icon or you can also see in setting drop down menu, and click it.

if theres a list of many printers, see the one you're using, and double click it. and cancel all pending document to be print.

Tip: please don't click the printer icon several times it will only multiple the printing process.

hope this can help

God Bless.

RF Keyboard 1.0

Easy one-

hit and hold these keys in order CTRL-ALT-Delete. Chose the Task Manager in the new window that pops open. There are four tabs - Applications, Processes, Performance, Networking. Make sure process is chosen. Click on where it says "Image Name" so everything is in alphabetical order. Seach for a process that aludes to your keyboard (magickeyboard.exe or such). Right click then "End Process". Now uninstall.

Unfortuneately I don't know the name of the specific process it is runningso take your best guess.

Don't fret if you think you messed up anything, when you reboot, everything comes back!!

Other ways to try things including the Windows boot file, this is just the easiest and usually works...
