Hi. This is my first post. Please be gentle! <g>
I have a new toshiba laptop (A135-S4487) which I LOVE!
It came with Vista Home Premium. Also Windows Live OneCare purchased and
installed. I have a little wireless network with a desktop running Windows xp
Media Center hardwired. My old laptop, also a toshiba run windows xp. I have
a print server (netgear) so that I don't have to the desktop powered on all
the time to print from the old toshiba.
I have an HPlaserjet 1012 printer.
I could not set it up through Vista. HP does not have the new driver. Vista
driver does not work. The CD stops installing even with User account control
I WAS able, through this community, to set the printer to work on the vista
laptop through the print server and the desktop - I installed the new port
and it is named for the desktop. But it has to be powered ON for me to print.
Is there another way to do this so my desktop does not have to powered ON?
Thank you very much!
Sorry for the wordiness - just wanted to be clear.
