Print problems Hi I am having trouble printing from my Gateway Desktop to my Dell 924 printer. When I hit the print button, all print controls lock up, can't continue or cancel printing. I have to end task to get out.I checked the printer port, a USB, all is fine there. I have tried un installing printer, drivers, and all software, then re installing, nothing helps. I have even downloaded newest driver from Dell website, still locks printer up. But I can connect printer to my laptop, with the same drivers installed, printer works fine. I have swapped the mouse or the keyboard to the USB port that the printer was on, and they work OK. What else could I check? Thanks Joe

    Both systems are windows XP

    I have used this printer on desktop for the last 6 months, then about 3 weeks ago it started this. Did a system restore back to January 15, thinking maybe a setting had been changed somewhere, no luck on that either

What are your operating systems on the two pc's? Vista can not use the standard drivers for X86 devices.

    Assuming that you have checked the print carts and went to the pc printer properties and tried a test page and went to the printer controls and printed out a test page. If it still does not function you could test it on another pc or send the printer in for repair. If the printer will not print out a test page from it's own controls... its broken.

    Good Luck

hello! Ttry this option. At start menu select control panel, then select printer, then right at your printer model, then select properties, and select maintenance. At maintenance menu, select ink settings. if you want to use black ink only then click the menu button. or at Printing Preferences select main, then just check the box with grayscale printing.  if the problem still the same Try upgrading your system to XP Pack2 Professional or Vista Premium/Ultimate, then install your printer driver. These two system has a built in upgraded plug and play drivers, so it best suit to your need. thats it... Have nice day!
