  1. I'll give this a shot because my wife had the same problem on her HP 1300 series printer. I'll describe what I did to get it going. On hers, she had sent a document to the printer which failed to print...so she sent it again and again. Look down into the system tray for the printer icon. Doubleclick to open and select everything in there and cancel the print. Click on start, run, type "services.msc" without the quotes. Scroll down till you find "print spooler" and highlight it. Right click on it and look about halfway down in the box and make sure it is set to "automatic" and is started. If not, set to automatic. Now click on the "stop" button. We are stopping the services first to clear everything out. Close the box. Now look for a service called "Lexbec Server" (not to be confused with lexbce which is a worm) and do the same thing you did to the print spooler service. Reboot the computer. Run "services.msc" again and check to see that both services are running. If not, highlight each one and click the "start" button. This should take care of your problem. On the wife's computer, the Lexbec Server was not running. If it doesn't run, the spooler service won't work and you can't print anything. Hope this solves your problem.

  2. He needs to turn off autocomplete in the browser then empty all the temp internet files. Directions If the computers at the school are locked up that tight, he may not have the options available to him to disable these items....therefore....don't surf on company time. :nono:

  3. I don't think it has anything to do with the installation of the Sony drive or Nero but I could be wrong. I had this same thing happen to me on a W2K Pro machine. Reboot your machine and go into the bios setup and look for "power management" or "boot options" something to that effect. In there is a setting such as

    Wake on LAN

    Wake on Modem

    Wake on Keyboard/Mouse

    Wake on Power Restore (starts the computer after power loss)

    Plus some boards have the option to turn the system on at specified times.

    Anyway, uncheck that option, save your settings, and restart the computer. You should be good to go.

  4. Being it is a USB scanner, most of the time a USB device requires that the software be installed first before you connect the device. Did you install the software first? If not, try uninstalling what you have already installed and reboot the computer. Then install the software before you connect the scanner. See if that helps.

  5. Does anybody know if an external floppy drive, plugged into a USB port, will show up as "A:" drive on a computer that does not have an internal A: drive? The reason I ask, we have an old program "First Choice" on 4 floppy disks that we need to load onto a computer that doesn't have a floppy drive. We tried to burn the 4 program disks to CD which works but when that is put into the cd drive and clicked on "install", it looks for A: drive for the floppys. As you all know, just copying the program over onto the hard drive don't work either. Got any ideas?

  6. White_cloud_8. check this page and see that your settings are correct. Along with what everyone else has suggested, I also find that if you are trying to print a RGB image to a CMYK printer, or vice versa, your colors won't match. I do sign work and run into color matching all the time. It can be a pain. Depending on the program you are using for image printing, somewhere in the properties, there should be somewhere to set your color management to match what you see on the screen. I just had a time with matching a blue in a logo that looked great on the screen but printed out purple. Some usefull reading here. Hope this helps some.

  7. Follow Lou's directions and when you make the change to "Word", put a check mark in the box to "always use this program to open this type of file" and click "OK", then click the "apply" button. That "should" work.

  8. Dickster, I may have found a solution to our problem. I'm going to try it as soon as I get a chance. If you try it and it works...let me know....It may be a couple days before I can try it.


    Hopefull Solution
