Why is it randomly starting and printing rubbish?


go to control panel on the computer , printer devices , see what is printing and highlight print tasks and delete or cancel all print tasks
check that the printer drives has not been corrupted by going to printer properties and checking for driver updates
If you have up graded the pc with a win 10 upgrade, it could be a compatible problem as to get the best out of win 10 it needs to be installed of a disk as a stand alone os and not an upgrade of an existing os

Tip

I need Postscript drivers for Lexmark printer T630.


Hi.

This printer supports Postscript, PPDS, and PDF emulation only on systems up to Windows 2000, on Mac OS X up to 10.6, and on Solaris.
Windows 7and Vista are not fully compatible with this printer, and the printer will not have full functionalities on this systems.

If you have Win XP, Win dows Server 2003, Win 98, Win 2000 or Mac OS, then all you have got to do is installing full factory driver software.

If you have Windows 7 or Vista, then you should upgrade the printer to get full features. Lexmark has opted for not updating this printer software. Full software release for Windows Vista and Windows 7 does not exist.

The drivers and software for this printer can be downloaded from Lexmark website, using the links below:

Lexmark_AAG_WinXP_PS_Driver- Post script driver.

System PCL Driver for Microsoft Windows XP and Server 2003

System PCL Driver for Microsoft Windows 2000.

PCL6 driver for Microsoft Windows 95, 98 and Me.

Printing solution for Mac OS X v.10.6.

Print driver for Sun Solaris 10 x86 systems.

Network print support for Linux.

Here the full driver installation procedure : How to install a Lexmark printer without the driver and software disk.

The printer may still work on Vista and Windows 7 using the built in drivers, but it will have limited functionality. See: Windows 7 Information.

Regards.

The network printer will print a test page but nothing else


whenever a printer is connected to a network it loads a driver for all the lower versions of operating systems so that if any computer from the network having a lower version gives a print command it can be spooled using that driver. On the other hand you have connected the printer to an OS of low version and printing through a higher version. Its just like connecting a printer to DOS comp and trying to print through Win 98. So now you know what you have to do. Just find your driver compatible for Win7 and connect it to win7 and you can give print through xp.

I am trying to install my printer to my laptop with Windows Vista and the laptop says it is ready. I click print and nothing happens. The software details say that I need to upgrade to Windows 98, NT, or...


I think that the printer driver that you installed in your computer is not a driver for Vista. I checked the supported operating systems and it's compatible with Win 2000 upto Win XP.

BUT, I saw this on a site:

Supported software
Windows Vista HP Deskjet 656c Printer driver utility.

Meaning that there's is a possibility that HP has a Vista driver for your printer. You need to contact HP and ask them where can you get the Vista driver for your printer. I had a feeling that it's the only way that would make the printer work.

Have a great day!

How to install hp laserjet p1505n network printer in windows 98


I can not find a win 98 driver for your printer on the HP website. DO yu have the instalation disk that was writen for win 98? If not try installing the printer through  the control panel. Either printers/fax or through install new hardware.The first being the preference. Some of the win OSs have printr drivers already installed.
If this does not work out, then the printer has no drivr available for that version of windows and you ewither have to upgrade to Xp or use a different printer which has a driver for win 98.
