I'm running Vista on a laptop and have it networked with a desktop running
XP. On the laptop I also run Office 2007. Now here is where the fun begins.
Whenever I try to print from Office, the program just sits there, nothing
happens, says connecting to printer, press esc to cancel. Well, I let it sit
there for 5, 10, 15 minutes and nothing happens. Press esc and the program
"quits responding". Yes, have drivers
on both computers-no help, yes the
printer is installed on both the laptop and desktop and is designated as the
default printer. In fact, I cannot print at all from the laptop. Yes, printer
sharing is turned on. Another problem, I keep getting the "COM SURROGATE" is
not responding error. Will also get IE quit working error. I currently have
316 "errors" in my "Error Reports & Solutions" folder. Now I know I'm not the
only one with these problems. Can anyone please shed some light on any of
these. I'm about at wits end with this. Thanks.
