    Thanks for the help. I did download Mozila Firefox and it worked but the lady who owns the computer and printer likes IE better. I contacted HP and they suggested new ink which worked also. The printer was not completely out of ink but putting in new ink seems to have worked. And just in case it stops working again I took your advice and downloaded the lexmark toolbar. Thank you, Freida McDonald

Download, install and print from Mozilla Firefox.
Also download the Lexmark Toolbar, it works for any printer and is perfect for web printing.

My printer will print from Word but not from internet explorer. It was doing it just fine until today. Is there something I can reset?

Open an Internet Explorer window, and go to File>Print. You should see your printer listed. If you use more than one printer, select the one you want to use. If no printer is showing, go to the left of the window until you can see Add Printer, and tell it what printer to use.

I have vista and when I go to print, it says internet explorer stopped working and I have to turn the computer off to restart internet explorer

Hi, there are many reasons to the issue that you are facing while printing. The first step that you can do is reset the internet explorer to its manufacturer's default settings. To do this Open Control Panel > Internet Options. Once you are there, open Advanced Tab and locate the button RESET. You can go ahead and reset Internet Explorer. Once done try to open Internet Explorer and try to click on "Tools" menu and then select "Internet Options" again and go to Advanced Tab and once again try to RESET it.
Now try to check it by printing. This time there won't be any issue while printing.

Won't print anything on line

hi , this problem usually occurs when a user is having internet explorer 8 and hp smart web printing is not installed or if you are using windows xp then the service pack is not updated
so the best solution would be to use internet explorer 7 and install hp smart web printing from cd
or to down load firefox and print through it
if you have windows xp then you can update the service pack 3

HP 6310 AIO Won't Print HTML Documents

Thought that I'd report that I fixed my printer. I named my printer wrong btw. It is an hp deskjet F340 All in One.
  • Go to the Tools and select Internet Options. Then go to the Programs tab. Select Set Programs then Set Defaults and then Set Program Associations. Select Internet Explorer.
  • Go to the Tools and select Internet Options. Then go to the Advanced tab. Select Restore Advanced Settings. Restart Internet Explorer and try to print again.
It did not work when I removed the windows updates. I also tried this online help and it did not work. HP suggested that I install Firefox. I did not like this option so I'm glad my fix worked for me.

Job Status Window Interface has stopped working.

The issue usually occurs if you are using windows xp drivers on a vista machine. It's strange that the error does not come up when printing from internet explorer 7.0.

There is a file on that you can run to remove any xp drivers and then run the vista installation file. that should take care of these error messages from the operating system.

you can copy and paste the following links to download and run the files :

When I try to print I get a fax window

Go to Start Menu, Printers and Faxes. When the Window opens and you see your printer, right click your printer and choose Set As Default. If you don't see your printer, reinstall it from the second users desktop.
