Question about Printers & Copiers
HP Pavillion dv6602AU, Vista Home Premium, SP RC1, 2 GB RAM (667 MHz)
Canon LBP 2900 Laser printer
All drivers updated to the latest available on the website. (including HP)
When I give a print command from any program (office, corel, notepad, outlook, firefox etc...) it takes a very long time to print. The printer status window shows it is spooling the document. This remains for about 2 minutes. The suddenly the spooling message is gone and the printout comes out of the printer almost instantly. This problem doesn't occur if I connect the printer to another computer running XP or Vista Ultimate, using the same cable. Have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, (even after manually removing the driver from System32 forlder), but the problem persists. Changing the cable or USB port doesn't help either. Please HELP!
In this case you can bypass the spooler by the following steps:
1. Right click the printer icon & left click the printer properties
2. Click the Advenced tab in the printer properties.
3. Select the option PRINT DIRECTLY TO THE PRINTER & UNCHECK THE OPTION SPOOL THE DOCUMENT.
4. Click apply and ok.
5. Try printing.
