  • Problems with printer after windows update on Vista

    I am running Vista Home premium 32-bit with SP1 and have an Epson SX215 printer. I have Noton antivirus installed.

    My printer will not respond after installation of recent updates. Remiain of items in the queue for printing and the caanot be deleted. I tried Mr. Fixit for printer problems, but it just crashes evenn after leaving 2 hours to run! I tried the system restore, but I just get a message saying "unknown error found no changes."

    I can solve the problem by resetting the PC to the settings to factory, but when I load these recent windows updates again that the problem comes back.

    Help, please!


    What updates caused the problem to occur?

    Look for updates in the update history.

    a. open Windows Update by clicking on the button start. In the search box, type Update, and then in the list of results, click Windows Update.

    (b) in the left pane, click view update history.

    c. to display more information about an update, double-click it.

    I suggest that you realize the following methods and check if they help to solve the problem.

    Method 1:

    (a) click Start, go to control panel

    (b) select system and Maintenance

    (c) select administrative tools

    (d) double click on Services

    (e) in the services list, scroll down until you find one called "print spooler".

    (f) make a right clic on "Print spooler" and "restart".

    (g) "suppression" of work will be lost and all work queued in your queue will print.

    Method 2:

    I would completely uninstall and reinstall Epson SX215 printer driver package.
    a. open devices and printers, click the Start button, and then click the start menu, click devices and printers.

    b. right-click on the printer you want to remove, click on remove the device and then click Yes.

    If you can't delete the printer, right-click again, click Run as administrator, click on remove the device and then click Yes.

    Need administrator permission if you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    c. now, reinstall the printer . Note: Valid link also for Windows Vista.

    Method 3:

    If the above didn't help, restore settings PC and install the updates one by one and refrain from installing the update (although not recommended) which is the origin of the problem.

  • Satellite Pro C850 - problems with WiFi after Windows update 8.1


    I was wondering if someone could give some advice on a problem I have.

    Had an adjustable C850 Pro for a few months and worked well on Windows 8.
    I myself am then harassed and intimidated by Microsoft Update in order to install Windows 8.1 and in a moment of weakness, I succumbed (got sick of the nagging).

    Since that time, my wifi is very intermittent; either I'm on another computer write this and the laptop is essentially not connected to the internet.

    For some reason any (although I didn't try it before), I can not connect via ethernet either, so I think it's probably the driver problems. (I also tried to connect the public wifi but fails).

    I tried to install the driver WiFi Toshiba 8.1 but that has not solved the problem.
    Then I noticed that I'm supposed to install a bunch of drivers in the order.

    Maximum setting to do it, but the first package (associated with bluetooth) said I have to remove the current driver... I try by "turning off", then "Uninstall" but 8.1 seems to re - install automatically and I don't know how to disable this option (I can try to delete the driver file, I guess, but I'm sure 8.1 covered too and will probably launch a drone to try me out ", if I do). *

    Any kind soul there suggestions on a way forward? Pls.

    I see in the instructions of Toshiba Windows Update 8.1 should I have uninstalled the drivers before the update, but there is not much I can do about it now. :(


    > I don't see in the instructions of Toshiba Windows Update 8.1 should I have uninstalled the drivers before the update, but there is not much I can do about it now
    All your problems with the Windows 8.1 update related to the fact that you have not upgraded the Windows 8.1 system as recommended by Toshiba.


    Back to Windows 8 (reset the system back to factory settings)
    Then, install all updates and patches for Windows 8 and follow along with the upgrade of system as described on the Toshiba Windows 8.1 upgrade page

    On the page of the Toshiba UE driver, you will find all the instruments that must be installed in the correct order and Windows 8.1 driver!

    I have HP desktop with Microsoft Vista operating system.  The printer I have is HP Laser Jet P1006.  1 months ago about the computer wouldn't print or download an attachment to an email.  I uninstalled the printer and re-installed, but the problem persists.

    What happened, it was this.  With an email (from or once I clicked 'print', the normal menu for printing that should go up.  Then I clicked 'print', the monitor would show a display of the menu "save under" and showed the formulations of XPS as 1 line and XPS Documents like the following line.  When I chose the option search for a printer and typed in the name of the HP Laser Jet P1006 printer and click "select", the system responded to that file name is not valid.

    Please explain what was wrong and how to fix these problems with printing and download of attached file.

  • Satellite L70-A-118 - problems with WiFi after Windows 8 to 8.1 Win update

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    After that update of Windows 8 for Windows 8.1 WiFi disconnects regularly and if there is a connection
    the connection is limited.

    I followed the update instructions I downloaded with the Windows 8.1 drivers.

    The WiFi LAN adapter settings are intact on DHCP.

    Waiting for assistance to help me a stable wifi connection.

    Kind regards

    Low van Leeuwen

    Two weeks ago I've updated my Satellite U940-103 and everything went well. There is no problem with WLAN. I use it all the time.

    What model of laptop do you have?
    Have you installed the driver for the Toshiba download page or driver provided by Windows update (sometimes classified as important update)?

  • Cannot print on a Brother printer after Windows Update

    We share the same brother MFC-8660DN on a network (Win XP x 4 & Win 2008 Server x 1), everything was fine until yesterday (16/09/10). 2 XP computers cannot print (Status: printing error) just after the recent update of windows installation (windows auto update has been set for each week). When we tried to print to the brother printer, he would be stuck in queue for a minute and a bubble pop up "document cannot be printed." 2 computers work fine otherwise. Everything works normoally and can be printed to another printer like Canon. (PS: I tried to uninstall and reinstall the brother printer driver, but no luck the question of setting)

    On the other hand, the other 2 XP did not have an update, and so they can't always print on the Brother printer. Also, Win 2008 server doing a windows update auto but print very well so.

    Therefore, I believe that the update of windows XP must have something to do with the printing error. Is there a fix or update? Alternatively, we can uninstall the recent windows update (only one?) to solve this problem? I'm not sophisticated OS, do not know what could be uninstalled. Help, please!

    I received a call from a client 2010-Sep-16 that they could no longer print
    on a network printer from any workstation.

    Workstations have Vista Business 32 and have been updated morning of September 16.

    The server is Server2003 & printing it still worked well.

    Printers using IP ports very well for more than 2 years.
    Fix was to use instead of the intellectual property & create ports with the full share name.

    The IP address of the printer had not changed AND
    I couldn't always navigate with IE8 (using IP address)
    printer see printer configuration data

    Workstations are Server 2003 domain

    This trick of name full-fledged was how I had to put in place
    Vista Home Premium workstations
    to use network printers in home networks.

    Why Vista Business "updated" settings for Home Premium?
    Is this a permanent 'update '?

    Why no matter what version of VISTA do this?
    Windows 7 has the same problem?

    With Vista Business 32 (short-term)? solution was to change the port to a local port with full sharing of the printer name

    After giving the command print the first page which is printed details of the document as a file name, directory, subject, author, date of creation, comments, editing details etc etc.

    Hi diehard,

    1. What is the brand and model of the printer?
    2 - is the problem occurs when you print a specific document or all documents?

    I suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the printer drivers from the manufacturer's Web site and see if that helps. Follow step 3 of the following link on how to install the drivers.

    Try it please take a moment to build a question, describing what occurred, what device you use, what computer OS you use, and what troubleshooting steps you tried to correct. In addition, you use the services of Apple, and have you backed up your phone and your computer.
