Question about Compaq Presario Notebook

1 Answer

Printing problem My girlfriend has a gateway laptop running Windows XP. It is about a year old. She has a HP all in one printer also about a year old. Sorry I don't have details on the specs of these. The problem is she uses People PC as her IP and when she tries to print while online she gets knocked off every time. I have done all the basics, removing items and rebooting and reloading all software but to no avail. there are no conflicts in device manager either. Is there somewhere I can look. Thanks

Is she trying to print web pages or info from the internet while using people pc?
If so, it's going to kick it off because of the lack of download bandwidth.
Instead of printing direclt from the webpage, try to save as a file, then print the file instead of the actual page.
Hope that helps.
Good luck

Can our ALPS MD 1000 printer work with Windows 7? We used it when old computer had Windows XP on it, but that crashed and bought HP with Windows 7 now... we need Alps to make waterslides for custom rod...

There are NO Windows 7 drivers for the ALPS MD printer. I've read that you can run an XP virtual mode on Win7 that allows you to use the printer. If you are comfortable tweaking the OS, it's a workable option. I picked-up an old (and cheap) laptop on Craigslist and printed my decals from there.

I have an old HP T45 printer and a newer HP Pavilion PC (about 5 years old) with Windows XP. Ever since I got the PC, I've had printer problems. Originally, it told me I needed a new printer driver and...

Your printer falls under the category of "Legacy" or "Classic" which means it is old. The lack of a digitally signed driver only means that the driver that this printer uses has not been Microsoft Blessed. It may be time for a new printer, my friend.

Vista cannot connect to xp printer

It sounds like your are using your Windows XP computer as the print server, and you are trying to connect your Windows Vista machine to the Windows XP print server. Your Vista machine is trying to download the XP drivers from the Windows XP computer to your Vista machine. This won't work. Windows XP and Vista print drivers are not compatible.

If the printer is truely networked (it has it's own IP address on the network, it has its own ethernet connection). Then instead of trying to map out to this shared printer, add new printer to the Vista machine using Vista drivers for the HP Deskjet 3940. The type of port you would need is a standard TCP/IP port. To get this address, print a settings page from the printer. Look for either a TCP/IP address or IP address on this print out. This is the port address you want to create and then connect to.

Print spooler service not running on Windows XP

Spooler depends on the RPC service being running. But you really need to get into event viewer and check for anything related to either RPC or Print Spooler. If you're trying to print to a network printer you could have firewall issues either within Windows or your router. Think about what changed on your system around the time this problem began.
