We have an oj8500 (not wireless) printer connected to one computer operating on windows xp. We can to add a computer operating on windows vista to the printer. is there a way to do it that works? if so,...


Yes, if both these computers are on a network (wireless or wired, doesn't matter), the printer can be shared on the XP machine and then found and installed on the Vista machine.
The only disadvantage is that the sharing machine must be on all the time in order to make the printer available to the other computer.
To share a printer, open the Printers and Faxes applet from Start Menu -> Settings, right-click your printer and choose Sharing. The system will guide you.
Afterwards on the Vista computer you must install a new printer and tell it to search for a network printer - it should be found and installed quite easily.

Please come back and rate the solution if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

I downloaded the latest Skype and now my webcam will not send or receive video I have had the webcam driver updated this morning, but that did not help.


did you un-install skype before downloading the newest? if not uninstall both skype and the webcam drivers. then install skype first if you have win 7 or vista just plug in your webcam and it should find basic drivers to work right off the bat, if not then download the drivers make sure you are downloading the right drivers if you have a 64 bit system and your downloading 32bit drivers that could be it to check go to computer system properties and it will tell you 32bit or 64bit visa win 7 only

Printer Sharing for 32os and 64os


I am not sure I follow. If you are attempting to share a printer over a home network between computers with different OSes, perhaps you could try this:

If the printer works already with Win7(32bit), go to the Vista computer and try the following:

Go to Control Panel. Choose printer. Then choose Add Printer. Choose Add a local printer. Click on Create a new port. The default in the drop down box is Local Port. Do not change that. Click Next.

A dialogue box will appear asking for you to enter a port name. Type in the \\computer name\printer name

My problem is that my laptop is too slow. OS Home Vista Basic. Memory was upgraded to 1GB. Now I want to upgrade the memory. Can this model be upgraded to 4GB. this means I will install two 2gb. Thanks.


I would suggest you not to install 4GB RAM on windows, keepp it to 2GB.
Use MAC or Linux instead, they have a performance also.
If you want to use 4GB RAM then you will have to switch to 64bit Windows, you should not use 4GB or moree on 32-bit Windows OS.

Cannot install hp software into brand new comp!!!!!!!


If you are using VIsta, you should get a UAC prompt that in order to elevate your privileges to install software and drivers. You need to click on Continue or, if it is asking for a username and password, you need to enter a username and password for an account on the computer that has administrative privileges.

No video just before login on Vista


the software and hardware is not compatibile to your motherboard and the 32bit system even though some manufacture says it does it doesnt
they are just trying to sale you something you want and dont need for that system, just take it back and tell them the truth it is not compatible with your manufacture and software is also not compatibile to the 32bit system.

have you really looked close to your machine, i made that mustake before thinking i had a 32bit system but in really had a 64bit hardware system with 32bit software and loaded the wrong software and ended up with a new hard drive for me not paying attention to what i was doing.

so please be carefully with our new techology out there

Network access denied


Follow the steps to Sharing the files

Your computers are already connected to a network — i.e., they’re all already able to browse the Internet using the same router..

1 : Open the Network and Sharing Center window by clicking on the Windows orb in the lower left corner, and then either right-clicking on Network and selecting “Properties”, or opening the Control Panel and double-clicking “Network and Sharing Center.
2 : If your network type is “Public,” you need to change it to “Private”:
  1. To the right of the network name and location type, click Customize.
  2. In the Set Network Location dialog box, click Private, and then click Next.
  3. In the Successfully set network settings dialog box, click Close.
3 : Under “Sharing and Discovery” in the bottom half of the Network and Sharing Center window, you need to turn all the settings from “Off” to “On” by clicking on the down arrow next to each setting, clicking on “Turn on …”, and clicking on “Apply.” But see some pointers below:
  1. For the “Password protected sharing” setting: you may want to leave this “On” or turn “Off” at your discretion. (I turned mine off.)
  2. For the “Public folder sharing” setting:
    1. If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files, but not create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open files. This is the default setting.
    2. But if you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files and also create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open, change, and create files.
4 : You’re done with the Network and Sharing Center window. Close it via the “X” button.
5 : Click the Windows orb at the lower left corner of your computer, and click on Computer
6 :
n the Computer window, navigate to the folder containing the file(s) or folder(s) that you want to share — e.g., “Pictures” or “Documents” or a specific file or folder within. Note: don’t open the folder itself that you want to share — just navigate to the folder that contains this folder.
7 : Right-click the folder that you want to share, and then click Share. The File Sharing window is displayed. (Click picture for a larger version.)
8 : If you have password protected sharing enabled: Use the File Sharing window to select which users can access the shared folder and their permission level. To allow all users, select Everyone in the list of users. By default, the permission level for a selected user is Reader. Users cannot change files or create new files in the share. To allow a user to change files or folders or create new files or folders, select Co-owner as the permission level.
9 : If you have password protected sharing disabled (like I do): Click the drop-down arrow inside the blank field in the File Sharing window, and select the Guest or Everyone account. Click “Add.” Then for that new account, click on the down arrow under “Permission Level” to change it to Co-owner (if you want anybody to read and modify files) or leave it at “Reader” (if you want other computers to just read but not modify your files).
10 : Click “Share”, then “Done.”


CRITICAL NOTE: If you selected “Everyone” when sharing a folder, you’re also making its contents available to any computer that joins this network. Many households, including mine, have wireless Internet via a wifi router. If you don’t have WEP encryption turned on, then I could just drive up and park on the street near your home, open my laptop, let it join your network via your wifi, and then nose around through your files. It’s particularly important that you have WEP encryption turned on for your wifi network.

Sharp 1642CS shared printer


You can go into your print driver and change the Driver. I dont think there is a difference between Home or Prem drivers. There is how ever a difference between 32 bit and 64 bit Vista?
When you set up the printer and share it from a PC, The printer attached to that PC can Control the Configurartion of the printer. PC's can either pull the driver from the sharing PC or you can select your own.

I would first check that the correct drivers are installed, (64bit or 32bit)
I would check the computer that is trying to print. replace the driver with the correct one.
You can open the print server -open the printers and fax folder, right click in a white area in that folder, a menu should pop up. Select Print Server from there you will see tabs, try to replace the driver from there.
Or Open the Printer Properties and there you will see Driver-Update in there.

This is a link to an explanation
Thou it was made for XP but the basic Infomation is the same.
-->Print a test page from The Printer Properties), if it works the Computer is fine, if you try to print from a program and it prints with errors. it is in the program..

Wireless network between vista & xp


Open Windows Explorer, and then locate the drive or folder you want to share. Right-click the drive, and then click Sharing and Security. To open Windows Explorer, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer. To change the name of your folder on the network, type a new name for your folder in the Share name text box. This will not change the name of the folder on your computer. To allow other users to change the files in your shared folder, select the Allow other users to change my files check box.
