A visiting relative messed with my printer settings+now I can't print anything!
Please help me sort this out?
I am using Windows XP Home-sP2
My printer is a HP PSC 1400 All in One Series.
I'm clueless as how to fix this. I even reinserted the cd that came with the printer+did a restart, but no luck.
Please advise

Try this.. Go into the controll panel then into printers/faxes and delete the printer. Have the install disk handy and restart windows. When the new hardware found wizard comes up insert the disk and reinstall printer.

Thanks Sneakycyber,
It took a couple of restarts deleting then starting over with the same printer cd, but I managed! Thank you :thumbsup:
I was having a pretty stressful afternoon,+when the printer wouldn't print, I really blew-lol! Whatever I tried to print kept going into a que,whatever that is :huh:
I must let my relative know not EVER to mess with my settings again :huh:

If I had been thinking clearly in a more relaxed state, I should have known to do just what you said.

Thanks again!
