My printer files have disappeared. Running HP WinXP Media Center Edition 2005, Professional SP3, with HP 1209 psc All In One Printer.
My printer files disappeared (have lost original installation disc), downloaded driver and software from HP with firewall and norton both disabled.
Installation can not complete and repeatedly gives me an "RPC server unavailable" error message.
I've reviewed Services files and both RPC and RPC locater are set to automatic and started. Cannot find a print spooler file in 'tasks running'
Looking in Printer Settings, no printers are available for selection.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times to no avail.. on download it will tell me the file already exists, but cannot find it anywhere in win explorer.
(I can copy with the All In One, it would seem the printer is functional but a hardware/software installation issue is prohibiting print or scan function)
Have tried everything , any help?
