Hi there, i dont know if this is of any relevence however, i have just spent the whole afternoon trying to install my new printer, every time i installed my disk a little icon popped up saying usb didnt recognise the device, despite endless frustration i did it another way, If your printer is a usb connection then before inserting the disk connect the printer to the computer and switch on, this then brings up the wizzard which should help you install, if this doesnt work...trust me it took me ages, try different usb ports, i finally found one that picked up the printer, after it detected the device i was then able to continue with instalation via the disk and wohoo many hours later i have a printer, unfortunatley i have now run out of paper doh!!! i hope this helps someone :-)

I have just upgraded my computer with windows 7 and my lexmark X2350 printer will not work a message comes up ( an unknown error occurred while printing ) i'v gone on line for the windows 7 drivers but...


Lexmark X2350 Injet All-In-One Printer, product "discontinued" so there is no official Win7 drivers for this model from LEXMARK.

Try this workaround using the "Vista" drivers to install the printer.
1. Disconnect your printer from your PC.
2. Uninstall the any previous drivers & software from the PC.
3. Use a Registry Cleaner to clean up any of remnants in the registry.
4. Install the "Vista drivers" & Software. (You may have to 'Run As Administrator')
5. Then plug in your Printer & power on, and let Windows search for the drivers.

Hope it helps out.

While trying to print from a microsoft works spreadsheet...it always says "out of memory" and prints a distorted page.


Hi

here are some ways to override the problem


When you try to print
it says
Microsoft Works Out of Memory

This problem may occur if there is a problem with the printer driver that is installed on your computer.


  • Method 1: Install a different printer driver
    Contact the manufacturer of your printer to inquire about how to obtain and install the most recent version of the printer driver for your printer.
  • Method 2: Configure the printer as the default printer
    Configure the printer driver that you have installed as the default printer. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start, and then click Printer and Faxes.
    2. Right-click the printer that you want to set as the default printer, and then click Set as Default Printer.
    3. Click File, and then click Close.
    4. Start Works, and then print the spreadsheet or the database file.
  • Method 3: Install an emulation printer driver
    If the problem persists after you install the most recent version of the printer driver for your printer, install an emulation printer driver. An emulation printer driver is a driver that imitates the functionality of a different printer driver. For example, you may be able to resolve this issue if you install the driver for the Hewlett-Packard DeskJet 550C printer or for the Hewlett-Packard LaserJet II printer. To do this, follow these steps if the printer is connected directly to the computer:

    1. Click Start, and then click Printers and Faxes.
    2. Double-click Add Printer.
    3. Click Next, and then click Local printer attached to this computer.
    4. In the Use the following port box, select the port that you want to use.

    If the printer is connected directly to the computer, the port is typically LPT1 (Recommended Printer Port).
    5. Under Manufacturer, click the manufacturer of the printer driver that you want to use as the emulation driver. For example, if you are installing Hewlett Packard 550c, click HP DeskJet 550c.
    6. Under Printers, click the model of the printer that you want to use as the emulation driver, and then click Next. Select HP. In Drivers, select HP DeskJet 550c.
    7. In the Printer name box, type a name for the printer, click Yes to set the printer as the default printer, and then click Next.
    8. Click the appropriate option for sharing the printer, and then click Next.
    9. Click No, and then click Next.
    10. Click Finish.

    Note If you are using a USB printer, go to step 12.
    11. Start Works, and then try to print the spreadsheet or the database file.
    12. Open Control Panel.
    13. Open Printers and Faxes.
    14. Right-click HP 550c, and then click Properties.
    15. Click Ports.
    16. Click USB001 Virtual Printer port for USB.
    17. Click Apply, and then click OK.
    18. Start Works, and then try to print the spreadsheet or the database file.
Hope this will solve your problem

Epson TM-U220 Matrix Printer not printing in WinXPP


hi basiime

possible issue is port configuration. if the generic text driver works, apd driver should work too.

what may be happen is that when you install the apd driver the other printer drivers that you have were still using the same port that your apd driver were using. example, you have generic txt assigned to lpt1 and then the apd were assigned on the same port, this is were you get the trouble.

what you must do is, first, check any printer driver that you have using the lpt, say for example, you generic text is using lpt1, when you install the apd driver set it to lpt2. apd drivers will create a new port normally called esdprt. try to use that port but if that will not work reassigned the port of your apd driver to lpt2 printer port then uncheck bi-directional support. from there you should be able to print..

hope that resolves your issue.. =)
