Having problems with your Gateway ONE GZ7108 All-in-One Desktop PC ?

I have a Gateway All-in-One computer that is only a few weeks old. Recently I purchased a Lexmark 4 in 1 Print, Copy, Scan, Fax printer. After hooking and installing the printer up to the computer, my computer is running very slow. Decided to uninstall the Lexmark printer and now everything is back to normal. What brand of printer will work best and will be capatiable with my Gateway computer and not slow it down?


Answers :

What operating system do you have? Look for a printer that has drivers that are fully compatible with your OS. In general, I've had good results with HP, Epson and Okidata. However, I do not have any all-in-ones and do not buy the cheapest ones that cost more in ink than to buy a new machine. (Stand-alone products are easier to troubleshoot and replace if needed.)

Also check that your system meets the minimum memory specs for the printer drivers without needing to close applications at the same time.

I hope this helps,

(Win7 drivers are in progress for some manufacturers and models, so check at the manufacturer's website for the compatibility or the Microsoft compatibility tool first:

Mostlikly you had stale printing jobs to be done and the computer was trying to procces those and output them to the printer i recomend trying to hook up the same printer again check there website for updated drivers
\015\012note the printer icon in the lower right of your screen when you have printing jobs to be done try clearing the jobs or aborting the jobs to be done from the printer cache
\015\012untill you do this you will have slugish system no matter what printer you hook up to it
\015\012i know i havnt answered this question completly so plan on doing a lil more research on the topic of printer cache and how to clear it
