Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I think there may be a bug in Windows XP which automatically installs a printer in the Printer and Faxes Folder. But that is nonfunctional so that you can not print selecting it default.
To be able to print, you should try:
- Un install all the previously installed printer drivers.
- Connect the printer to you PC.
- Restart the computer.
- Let the windows install its default printer driver via plug and play. It may be like "Alps MD-100..." etc. You may rename its name in the "Printer and Faxes folder" as "Printer nonfunctional".
- Do not delete that default printer driver and do not use that printer drive while printing.
- Install the Alps driver which you had in the CD. (If you don't have I can find for you.)
- Then set the newly installed printer driver as your default printer.
- Always use this printer while printing.
Hope this helps.
If you have any comment I am ready to answer it.
