If you would like to restore the pc back to factory settings, I suggest you use your recovery disks that would have been received with the PC or you would have created as part of the setting up process. If you do not have these then you would have to buy the software online or via a software retailer. There is no place online that you can legitimately download for free.

Hope that helps

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..
