Dear Sir/madam,

Try saving it as a RTF (rich text format) so that you shouldn't lose all the
formatting within the file, then opening the RTF and saving as a DOC.... or
saving the DOC in another Filename using File, Save As.

You have a few options:
1. Install the printer on the Vista machine and connect the XP machines to the printer on the Vista machines.
2. Upgrade the XP machines to Vista.
3. Make the printer a network printer so that PCs will use their own drivers and not a shared printer drivers.
4. By a seperate printer for the XP machines.
5. Copy the files to the XP machine and print them from XP PC.
6. Install new fonts on the XP PC.
7. Update the printer driver to use Potscript only and not PCL or other language.

Or else try tat

You might want to remove the cirrent driver and try again.


Thanks
cheers

Vista will not print to HP Laserjet 5p


I purchased a Dynex USB to Parallel Converter Cable from Best Buy and tried to connect but had no success. I then sent an email to Dynex customer service and received a reply in about 24 hours. The rep provided spot on instructions which I was able to follow to a tee. My 14 year old HP Laserjet 5P is now ready to run until it blows up.

I spent hours searching web forums and only received overcomplicated replies by people who think they are techies, none of which worked. I am 63 years old and not a techie, so if I can do it, anyone can. I have saved the email and will forward this straightforward simple fix to anyone who needs it. My net cost was $36.00 for the cable.

Will print test page but nothing else


i've had the same problem with the same printer. mostly it happens on my vista home premium laptop printing remotely to the printer which is connected to an xp home machine. i found that i need to stop and then start the print spooler. on either of these operating systems you can do this by right clicking on the My Computer (XP) or Computer (Vista) icon and choosing "Manage." Once Computer management is open, go to Services and look for Print spooler. Right Click on Print Spooler in the list. choose stop. wait for the print spooler to stop, then right click again and choose Start. That should clear your stuck deleting document.

Reconnecting up Brother mfc215c all in one


This machine MIGHT NOT support vista!

If you run XP you should download the aggressive remover tool and delete all drivers. After restart of pc install mfl-pro suite and wait until software demands the connection to mfc.

Never connect machine to a hub!

It must be connected to pc usb!
