Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook ?

I have a desktop computer that is hooked up to a printer. Recently I purchased a laptop and router. I was trying to print from the laptop to the printer, but get the message that the printer is offline. Does the desktop computer have to be on in order for the laptop to print to the attached printer? it seems kind of pointless to have to have both computers on just print. Is there some other way where I can have only the laptop and printer on to print? Thank you.


Answers :

Yes you will need the desktop on at the entire time. The desktop is acting like a print server to your laptop. If it is turned off your laptop will not be able to share the printer from the desktop. If you want to be able to turn off your desktop you should buy a printer that has networking capablity. There are many different kinds available and even some that are capable of wireless networking. This would be the route to go.
