How can i set up the printer to this computer?


depending on it's age, it could be a Parallel, a Serial, or a USB printer....

You will also need the drivers for it...Note: it is sometimes known as a Zebra printer. HOW you connect it to your PC depends on the connection. WHEN you install the drivers also depends on what connection type it is (USB: do not connect printer until the driver software tells you to, the others are OK to connect first...but NOT while the PC is ON....especially for a serial printer.)

UPS used to use those (they may still,) and might have drivers you can use....they wern't for USB when I used them, but they may have now...

I cannot print from my computer. There seems to be printing locked in my printer .this is blocking me from printing any documents from on line


Until you are part of domain network or nothing new installed related to firewall printing might not be blocked. You can check for 2 things to make sure software side is not of problem
1. Printer driver is installed ( to check go to start->settings->printer and faxes and see if the printer driver is listing there or not, if it is there make sure that one is your default printer)
2. Print spooler service is running or not. ( If you are not able to find any drivers in printer and faxes, then for sure you print spooler service is not running, to start print spooler click on start->go to run-> type "services.msc" and hit enter, on the right side of service window search for print spooler service, double click and click on start to start the spooler service.

If above doesnt solve the problem, check followings

1.Make sure all cables are connected proper and there are no loose ends on both side, printer and computer side.
2. Make sure there are no errors on printer ( led's indicating error message)
3. If in network, make sure proper IP address and proper driver is installed and you are able to reach the ip address by pinging. ( goto run->type cmd>hit enter> type ping followed by ip address, it should generate reply )

New Vista Computer wont print last line, XP no problem


Using the print or printer setup (I can remember what is actually written) from within word. ensure that the print margins are not to small and cutting off your words, or if the print is appearing close to the edge of the paper when you print, you maybe outside the range of the prints ability to print that close to the edge of the page in whice case you would increase your margins in the print setup (ie from .125 to .375 or .50)

First go to control panel, and see if you can print a test page from the printers list (Right click the printer, properties, print test page button)

If you can't print a self-test, the disconnect the printer, uninstall the drivers, reboot, download the latest driver from support.lexmark.com, connect printer when prompted during drive install.

If you can print a self-test, then right click the printer icon, and click set as default, then reopen you application and try printing again

Check the computer the printer is connected to.. go to printers and faxes.. right click on your printer icon...select sharing.....make sure the "share this printer " box is checked. You may need to install additional drivers if the other computers on the network are not running the same version of windows as the computer connected to the printer.

Printer sharing


This is assuming you are using Windows XP.
On the PC that will print to them, go to Printers and Faxes, open the window with them, right click and choose Sharing and Security
Click on the tab that says Sharing, and click the dot in "Share this printer"
Give it a simple name (like Laser1 or Inkjet1)
Click OK, and close the window.

On the other computers that you want to print to it, open My Network Places, Entire network, MS Windows network, <your workgroups name> **it works best if all of the computers in your network are part of the same workgroup**, look for the computer that is hosting the printers, double click it.
You will see the sharde printer name below the computer, right click on the printer and choose "Connect" say yes to the question that comes up about the connection security. When the flashlight goes out, you're connected.

Remember, for it to be a print server, that PC must be on.
