printer sharing & the tale of the 832c



two questions involved in this post.. first i'll explain my lan setup. in my room i have two PCs, both running windows xp pro. my main machine is a 1.3ghz duron, backup pc is a pII 350mhz. in the office, my parents each have a pc.. my mother has a pII 233 and my dad has what i think is a 300mhz laptop, although im not totally sure. both of theirs run 98. they share xerox document workcentre xd100 printer/copier which is nice..

anyway, my question is this, i tried to share it and it gives me errors about how the correct drivers arent installed, so where do i go from there?

two, ive got an hp deskjet 832c given to me by my aunt, pc recognizes it but im not able to print anything, it'll sit in the queue for awhile then claim errors.

any help would be most appreciated.




Did the above work? I used to work for HP, before they were assimilated by the borg.

With the deskjet range, the memory sometimes holds some errors when tryining to print. Open print manager and ensure that the Pause Printing option is not checked. Then purge and try again.

Hope this works.

for that xerox, do i need to download the drivers onto MY machine or just the machine im printing through over the network?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
