O.S win2k
Fresh install of win2k, hook up printer, win2k finds driver, print test page, cool everbody happy.
But then at some stage later when I go to print it comes up with send a fax.
O.k very funny so I go in to Control panel>printers> set hp810c as default printer.
But then when I try to print it just hangs (not the computer just the printing )for about half a minute then comes up with an error message that I cannot remember.
Never had this prob with win98
Any clues?

Bad grammar - printer probably doesn't like bad grammar.

Remove and reinstall the driver software for a start.

Iterate the loaded application software and modifications to the operating software.

Another option - go back to 98

Can you try and get that error message for us again?
Have you worked your way through the Windows Help?

Try Re-printing a Test Page :-)

Going back to 98 (from W2K) certainly is the worst choice!?! ?:|

Re-install the driver will probably solve the problem.

It maybe useful to copy the error message so that we can have a better understanding of the problem.

"There was an error found when printing document"Evil Printer.doc"to lpt1: Do you want to retry or cancel the job?"

the doc title is made up but the rest is word for word.
As for down grading back to win98 is like trading in an impreza for a lada because the cigarette ligter was broken.

Anyway I shall have a go at driver reinstall.
Cheers Guys

I got the freakin thing going but not really knowing which step was the right one, I kinda got my fingers crossed.

When I went to remove hardware, I could not find the printer anyware.
I guess it should be on lpt1 but the only driver was the port driver itself.
So I got desperate & just deleted the printer. Then stole the usb cable from my scanner, used it for the printer.
So know I'm back in action.
