Re: Taking Time to Print
That is a network problem between the laptop and the PC. Look for your network settings and adjust them.
Use a tool like pctools to identify your network problems. Vista and Xp sometimes have a problem

The problem is with VISTA. & Printer Drivers. Say if it prints on the XP why don't you connect the printer to the XP machine and share it so the Vista machine uses that? may work great. have you got the most up to date version of your printer driver? if not get it from manufacturers web site, and install as administrator.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help. Try the following:
On your laptop with Vista, click start, then network from the right side. This will take you to the Network Screen. Click on the Network and sharing screen. Click on options such as file sharing, printer sharing etc. Make sure that you can see each device your your network. If you can't you must go to each PC and use the network options on the XP machines. It's pretty simple, just follow the instructions that the wizard provides.
I hope this gets you up and running. Thanks for using Fixya.com
if the OS is changed to Xp then you will have to download the drivers for the hot keys from consumer support.lenovo.com and then you will be able to use all the quick launch facilities provided.Simply visit the site and choose your options as notebook and y 430 and you will be directed on that page.Remember tyo install patch for Xp before installing any driver as this is mainly for the sound but helps in connecting the PCI bridge to pci express as well.
From lenovo side no SQL server and .Net programes are given and might be they are loaded by your dealer.Secondaly you might be using vista home basic or home premium for the same and on both the OS neither SQL server nor .Net is supported so either you will have to use xp prof or vista business to use the both.
You need to go into the machine that manages the printer and allow the access denied machine access or to share printer. You may have to run the network setup wizard in order for the machines to recognize each other.
