I recently had to restore my computer, using system restore. Everything worked fine before that with the printer. I restored, reinstalled the printer disk, and went to print something. It says "Printing page __ of __" and looks like it will print. Nothing ever happens after that. If I look in the print que, the print jobs are listed, with the first one saying "Printing". But it never does. I even went online and installed updated printer drivers, whatever that is.....

This type of problem is often caused because recently installed software is incompatable with your current software. If you have installed any software since the printer last worked, try uninstalling this software first (this usually works).
If this does not solve the problem, or you have not installed any new software first run your antivirus/antispyware programs. Make sure that you disconnect your computer from the internet before running antivirus.
If you are still having problems, then preform a system restore. To do this on XP follow these steps:
Please try sytem restore for day before when you updated the firmware.

You need to reinstall Windows , either using a recovery CD or a generic Windows setup disk for the license printed on the sticker that you find at the bottom or at the back side of the computer. If the computer shuts down or hibernate while you are working, Windows is definitively damaged.
First ensure that the battery and power connection are OK.
If the problem started recently, before reinstalling Windows, you can try doing a system restore to a recent date before the problem started.
You find system restore using the Start button , under:
You will kick yourself !
It drove me crazy for 3 days and I had tried everything ! reloading the software, full system restore and pulled what little hair I have OUT !
I had exactly the same problems my printer which is an HP Photosmart 2610 all in one,would print photos and everything else EXCEPT anything from wordpad,notepad or similar ! the pages were coming out blank !
Wait for it !
The solution is so so simple !
As wordpad docs are only usually in BLACK.I decided to change the colour to blue and lo and behold it worked !
Simply my black cartridge was empty ! upon refilling Absolutely everything printed fine !
Sometimes the most simple solution we cannot see !
I hope this has been helpfull to you..............
I noticed your problem and thought I'd contact you about it.
Have you had your printer checked by an expert? As the problem you're having may be to do with the print heads being to close to the paper when printing, this could cause the heads to over heat and be gradually drying the ink while printing or even could be a case of the print heads being to far away from the paper while you're printing.
Also, what sort of paper are you using?
If using glossy paper, have you set the printer to the correct settings? As this could have a big effect on printing, I was once using plain A4 paper but didn't realize that my old printer (Lexmark 4300+) was still set on glossy paper, it was doing the exact same thing.
Instead of re setting the settings of the printer I went to the system restore on the system tools and restored my PC to the last known best working stage (Left click on start, place mouse over All Programs, put pointer over accessories then System Tools and then L click on System Restore, this should give you the choice of either restoring your system to the last known best working point or restoring to a date on the calender provided on screen to a date you knew your pc worked properly.
If this doesn't work then try deleting your printer from your PC by going on to the Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs, left click on your printer once and chose the remove or delete option and then try re loading the disk once your system has re started and you have fully logged back on.
If this still doesn't work, I would suggest getting your printer seen to by an expert or buying a new one.
