Question about PC Laptops

1 Answer

Lost printer I had loaded this printer sucessfully but for some reason the printer disappeared from my printer list although the scanner function of the printer is still operable. I thought it was due to an old lexmark printer which was hijacking the print spool but with this disabled it was no better. Any ideas please.

Re: lost printer

I you tell your specific make and model of printer, that would be more helpful.  But my first suggestion would be to find and install new drivers for the printer.

Loaded with printer cd. Shows printer as being the default printer. Gives me print option and sends it to the queue. But then after couple of seconds it disappears and doesn't print anything

1st try right clicking on any other printer listed in printers and devices and select it as default. Then do the same to the printer that you want to print to. I don't know why but I have had to do this a lot lately

if the function key of your keyboard not working, the primary reason is the chipset driver of your mainboard not installed. you need to load your cd/dvd driver to your cd/dvd rom then you can find the list of drivers and select the chipset driver click it and follow screen instruction after installation restart and done. be sure to locate the chipset driver base of your OS.

My mouse on my laptop just takes off and disappears from the screen at times i can get it back but then for no reason it disappears again this is very annoying it may run ok for maybe an hour then it just...

It might be due to corrupt Mouse drivers:

1. Open device manager.
2. Expand Mice and other pointing devices.
3. Right click on the listed Mouse device.
4. Right click on it and choose uninstall.

Restart the computer.

Upon restart the computer will find the missing drivers for Mouse and re-installs them accordingly.

Cant scan from hp 3110 photosmart printer

You are having hardware communication problems caused, very likely, by driver installation troubles. Go into CONTROL PANEL and then SYSTEM and then DEVICES and look for the scanner there under IMAGING DEVICES and check to see if it has an exclamation mark next to it, or if any other device has this mark, meaning that drivers are not installed for it. If there is no scanner but you have a warning icon labeled UNKNOWN DEVICE, this is the problem. If you find any non-functioning hardware devices, this is probably it.

Try this as a fix. Unplug the cable to the printer/scanner.

Go online to HP and download the latest drivers and utilities for the scanner/printer and save them to your desktop.

In CONTROL PANEL, open ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS. Scan down and remove (uninstall) anything related to the HP printer or scanner, everything. Then reboot. Then install the drivers and utilities on your desktop you saved previously, plugging in the unit when prompted to do so. If you are never prompted, plug it in at the very end when everything is installed. If this routine fails, try rebooting the system without the HP scanner plugged in, wait for a complete start-up, and then plug the scanner into a different USB port and follow the directions on screen taking note of any failure messages. PS: the scanner/printer needs to be powered on through all of this, of course. :>)

Good luck
