    i've reinstalled all operating systems and drivers - i added the printer but when i go to print it doesn't print and it says there is an error.

  • tsundby Jun 28, 2009

    it's a pixma ip6600d - the spool appears in the processes tab - i would assume that means it's running.

    Not sure how to copy my screen - the printer comment says "collecting printer status" and the actual printer says "test Page" then "error" could it be the drivers they updated are too new for this printer?

    1.) what printer are u using and check whether u have installed the correct printer drivers properly.
    2.) Goto control panel --> printers and faxes and locate whether your printer is displayed or not
    3.) Even check whether spool server service is running . To check if your spool server service is running or not .. open task manager by pressing Ctrl+Alt+DEL, then go to process tab and check the image name spoolsv.exe is running or not.

    1.) Did ur printer appear in Control Panel--> Printers & Faxes . ..
    2.) What about the driver installation .. is it installed correctly.

    If everything is installed correctly , then try to take a print of Test Page.

Please do that . It is necessary to view ur error it is not clearly mentioned , I mean i require Error number or the Error message what it is saying...

I have a dell xps that came with a wireless/bluetooth keyboard with mouse pad and i have another dell xps 420 that i'd like to use the wireless keyboard on...they are both dell xps's and both

Wireless/Bluetooth keyboards and mice can only be used with one device at a time it is like a bluetooth headset once it is paired with a phone it will 99.99% of the time only work with that phone and that phone only, Wireless keyboards and mice are setup on the same principal once they are paired up with 1 PC to use on another PC you have to remove the pairing. The worst case scenario is that the second PC's Wireless/Bluetooth has failed. I hope this helps.
