Whenever you go to your Start button just click on the setting and select printer or faxes and check whether your printer is being identified by the system or not if not install the driver relating to the printer and check it in the Device Manager and also check if theirs a check mark on the printer and if not just right click on the printer and set as default printer and confirm whether its online and right click on it an set as offline and check the connection of the printer and go to the printer properties and check the port and print the test page and more thing click on the Start button and select the RUN option from the start menu and type as services.msc and click on ok. Which list out all the service and find print spooler and make sure whether its being started if not just right click on the option and start it and also set it as automatic.

We use hp T770 HDD, error massage 79.03 when loading, after show preparing print system massage in a few minutes. ask for restart but after restarted the problem persist. please kindly help us if there any...

79 errors are often linked to firmware. Unplug the printer from power as well as any network or USB cables you may have plugged in. If the printer will restart without an interface cable connected then it is likely a bad print job. Clear all jobs from the print queues and then plug in the interface cable. If printer continues to stay at ready, download the current firmware and install it. This should resolve the problem.

We have giant company & having CANON LBP 2900.Whenever i am going give print it,s not printed .message shown ready to print but error occuring please help

try checking the printer if it is installed properly, by going to the printers and faxes folder, right click lbp2900 and check its properties, verify if the port used is correct. check printer if it is online and also the usb connection. if everything is ok, try replacing the usb cable. if after replacing the cable and the printer still doesn't print, uninstall it and remove the connection. Restart the computer and begin installation, do not connect the printer unless the system prompt you to do so. Run test print after the installation.
