But alas i have come to a problemthat i could find or i didnt try hard enough to find it.
Some how awhile back I notice that my old printer disappeared in the control panel page of printer and fax but shows up in all the programs (word, excel, IE, etc) when i go to file and print, it allows me to print and it also allows to go properties. So i neverminded but seemed strange. the printer was also a old printer that uses the parallel port located on LPT 1.
Recently my friend gave me his old all in one printer, which is a ubs printer. when i went through all the steps to install it. It pops a message from the auto detect that it cant install the printer because a error ocurred. when i use the software to install the drivers similar message pops up.
And i just noticed after trying to install the printer, when i go to control panel>printer and fax page to select "install printer" under printers task, when i click on it nothing happens, no install pops up, no error message, just nothing.
Btw im using windows XP pro
I dont expect much but any infomation is helpful
