Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

I bought a new hp computer 3 weeks ago and it will not run my printer unless I restart it. Then it will print until I leave it for an hour or so. Then I have to restart it again to print. My printer is a 2 year old lexmark z611. I have had 2 computer people here and they can not get it fixed.


Answers :

Since you are running a new Computer, you are most likely using Windoiws Vista correct?

Thats the problem. Windows Vista is Incompatible with all Printers older than 12 months ago. They dont tell you that when you get the system and they currently dont offer driver support for older printers for Vista. My suggestion, Printers are Cheap, seriously, i bought a new one for 40 bucks from Office Depot.
So go and buy a new one that has the statement on it that it is Compatible with Vista, otherwise you will run into the same problem.
