I'm using win XP. Since the HP1300n is having problems, I deleted the printer icon in Printer adn Faxes and try to reinstall it using the search printer wizard.
However I can't find the printer again in the wizard search.

Darn, I just wrote a whole answer for ya and shut the browser.

Basically your CPU has nothing to do with anything regarding this screw up other than printer drivers. So on your computer uninstall the HP drivers, then shut down. Shut down the printer and the router (or just a switch if that's what your using-you make no mention of your network topography). Boot in this order after a few minutes- router/switch, wait a few minutes, boot printer. The reason for the order is if you are using a router, the printer gets it's IP address from the router (IF DHCP is enabled which is the default). The printer should now be set with the same IP address it used before. Understand this is not 100% but on a small network (1-2 devices) the router usually send the same IP address to a device. It is 100% better if you do assign an static IP address (see your menus on the PRINTER). Now turn on your computer and re-install the printer. It should find it on installation.

A word of warning. Depending on which JetDirect you have makes all the difference in the world. The older ones did not use TC/PIP (Internet protocol for all intents) but used IPX ( a Novell protocol) and an old Windows protocol valled Netbui/Netbios.

So if the above doesn't work post more info-your network (router?, wireless) and the JetDirect model number. If you need help with the setting just say so and I'll be pleased to send you a step by step.

If you are using a print server, you will need to hook directly to the print server and setup a static IP addreess or it will change each time you boot the system, and you will go throught this constantly. Once you set a static on the print server, you will need to creat a port with that address and thatn when you setup the printer use that address and it will find the printer.

My hp desk jet 4215 is on fax mode and wont print can you tell me how to fix it


When you install an all-in one printer it creates 2 icons under printers and faxes, one is for the printer and one for the fax. With the issue that you're having it could be that what's set to default is the icon for fax, that's why whenever you try to print something it pulls up a screen for fax. Just make sure that you have the printer icon highlighted when you print. To set the printer as the default: Go to your Start button on your computer and go to Printers and Devices (Printers and Faxes for Win XP), if you can't see that on the list, go to Control Panel instead and click on Printers and Devices (Printers and Faxes for Win XP). Right click on the icon of your printer and click on Set as Default Printer. If the icon for your printer is missing, it might have been removed/deleted, in that case, you have to uninstall and reinstall the software.

You need to change your home network. Change Windows 7 machine from homegroup to workgroup and restart your systems. This should work for you.

Windows is defaulted to homegroup

Hope this helps

The network printer will print a test page but nothing else


whenever a printer is connected to a network it loads a driver for all the lower versions of operating systems so that if any computer from the network having a lower version gives a print command it can be spooled using that driver. On the other hand you have connected the printer to an OS of low version and printing through a higher version. Its just like connecting a printer to DOS comp and trying to print through Win 98. So now you know what you have to do. Just find your driver compatible for Win7 and connect it to win7 and you can give print through xp.

Just bought win 7 laptops wont connect to my lexmark x1180 printer connected to my desktop running xp any ideas?


Enable File and Print Sharing on your XP system.
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Printers
Enable "sharing' for the printer.

Click Start
Right-mouse click My Computer
Click Properties
Click Computer Name
to show the current "workgroup" name on your XP system.

On the Windows 7 system:
Configure it into the same workgroup.
Then, "Add Network Printer", connecting to your XP system, and pointing at the shared printer.

The drivers should be the same. When you share the printer, just make your Windows Server 2003 go to the computer with the printer shared by typing the IP address of the computer in the Run Box (Start > Run), for example \\192.168.1.100\. If your XP machine is set correctly, you should see the Printer and Faxes icon, or the printer icon. Double click on that and your printer will be installed with the drivers that XP uses (which are the same, just double checked) so you don't need to do any installing.

Network Vista Wireless Laptop to XP Desktop & Print Documents


On the desktop machine - go to the printers folder, right click the icon for the Laserjet and choose sharing (enable print sharing). You should be able to name the printer and make it accessible to anyone within the workgroup. If needed you can run the network setup wizard to change the workgroup names on both machines.

On the laptop go to add new printer and choose network printer, you should be able to browse to the desktop machine by name and choose the Laserjet as a printer (whether you want it to be the default is up to you). The laptop will download and install the drivers from the desktop pc to the laptop and set the correct network path automatically.

It goes without saying that the desktop machine must be on in order to print from the laptop in this scenario.

Network printer problem


1. How are these two computers networked? Through a router, or by a crossover cable?

2. Is the network workgroup the same on both computers?

3. Have you tried turning off any firewalls or rerunning their workgroup setup?

4. Remember, to share the printer the host computer must be on. Is it?

5. Did you right click on that printer and choose share this on the network? Also: the lack of a login prompt is probably the problem. To see,
