    You say yo can't install the printer - then you say you have a document queued up as if the printer is installed? I'm confused? Have you tried installing a different print driver like the 1710 or 1720 - which should work also with your 1700.

Goto the start menu. In the search bar along the bottom type: CMD

a black command prompt will open. In that command prompt type: net stop spooler. It should say, spooler service stopped. Then type net start spooler. It should say, spooler service started. Try reinstall. If you haven't deactivated the UAC controls, then ensure when you install to right click on the installer and left click on "Run as Administrator".

Good luck

I want to install windows vista by dell to my laptop will it work?


You can if you have regular Windows Vista disk, do not use Dell installation cd. (borrow from a friend or ask in your local comp. store if they can make you a bootable copy)
Use Vista key from the sticker on the dell computer. Make sure after install you put all the Vista drivers for the Toshiba so everything works ok.

Trying to add dell photo AIO 962 printer to my toshiba satellite laptop which is running windows 7. have followed dell website instructions to download driver/firmwear etc and chosen vista 32bit under drop...


Hi! Regarding this matter. The dell photo AIO 962 may not be compatible with windows 7 thats why it gives you the error message. You downloaded the driver using vista32 but you have a windows 7 on you machine, its not gonna work. It may work on the toshiba if you gonna downgrade from windows 7 to vista, but if you dont want that option you can wait for sometime to have an AIO 962 update for windows 7 for it to work. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Windows says printer offline, but it is not offline. network settings confirmed. windows firewall turned off. scanner works perfectly over network, but printer is "offline"


The printer offline error mostly troubles windows 7/8/10 users, The printers loses connectivity even when it is connected and operating. The status message displays offline on the computer, and the printer does not print. An Offline status indicates that the computer has failed to communicate with the printer. In some network conditions, the printer might get offline unexpectedly.

Before going to the solution for this you must know when and why printer offline error takes place:
The error may appear when Windows 8 diagnoses that the printer is unavailable, but unfortunately, most times it fails to tell whether the printer is really offline or if it has connectivity problems or printing errors. Reasons why your printer appears to be offline, include problems with hardware, such as disconnected cables or malfunctioning equipment, and problems with software, such as corrupted or incompatible driver files.
These might occur when:
1. The connection between the computer and the printer is slow/unresponsive.
2. The printer has encountered an internal error
3. There are multiple unfinished print jobs in the queue.
There are some simple steps you can follow before going to any complicated way:
Your printer offline can be a problem with the driver software. This is a small piece of code that Windows and the printers use to "talk" to each other. If the driver software is outdated, corrupted or incompatible with the version of Windows that you have installed, you may need to update it.
Restart the printer and the computer or unplug its USB cable.
Do check that the printer's power cable is plugged into an electrical outlet. If the printer is connected to a power strip, make sure the strip itself is connected to the electricity supply and is turned on.
In case you are using a network printer both wired or wireless, You restart the router as it may cause due to network failure.
Different manufacturers come with their own diagnostics software which can inform the user about the problems coming up (Ex : HP's Print and Scan Doctor), Use it as it will be really useful.
PRINTER OFFLINE ERROR Solution 1 :
Type in Services in your windows searches and hit the enter key. Click on Services option from the set of search results as shown below.
A new window for Services opens up. Scroll down and find the entry named Print Spooler.
Now right-click on Print Spooler entry and then on Properties option.
Set Startup type as Automatic from the drop-down menu.
As next, hit the Start button and wait till windows start the Print Spooler. Once done, hit Apply button.
Now if you look at the status of the Print Spooler, you can see that it is Started.
Solution 2 :
If the above method doesn't work for you, you can always try our second method. For that, type in Devices to the windows search and choose Devices and Printers from the search results.
Now find the printer that is offline and right click on it. Click on the option See what's printing from the context menu that appears.
A new window opens. Now click on the Printer tab and uncheck the option that says Use Printer Offline.
