I have a packard bell laptop, vista 64 home premium is installed.
No matter what i try vista is not printing, I am blaming Vista as we have installed 3 different Printers on this machine, and not one will print,the drivers
all install properly, printer is listed as default, printer recognised by vista, port settings show its set to USB as it should be, and no conflicts in irq.
I have used drivers from supplied CD with printer, and newest from manufacturers site in all cases.
When i press print, the job gets sent to printer, but then at the last moment errors.
I have last night reinstalled windows thinking this will cure it, but no, even a fresh install hasn't cured it.
I am totaly flumoxed now, especialy as Its a clean install, using the restore to factory settings type reinstall, and trying HP Epson And Canon printers with no luck
I have also tried msconfig to disable all startup progs, and services, nothing shows in event logs.
Would Group policy be a problem? I dont think GP is used on oem home premium?
Thank you in advance
