how can i join window 7 starter user to a domain
I've got a printer connected by USB to a desktop running Vista and hardwired to a WiFi router and I've got a Nokia booklet running Windows 7 Starter and using the WiFi. I have tried to get the two computers to connect with each other, but only the desktop can get into the booklet. I cannot get the booklet to get into the desktop. It seems that because I only have Win Starter 7, I cannot form a home group. I need the full featured Win 7 to do that. Is that correct? I really would like to use the printer on the booklet, but even though it seems to send the document to the printer queue on the desktop, nothing prints. I suspect it's the same issue as I mentioned, but at least it's getting something into the desktop. When I try to print and then look at the document's properties, it says the size of the document but always says pages to print.View 4 Replies View Related
I am using a netbook running Windows 7 starter. I have a Canon wireless printer that I used to be able to print with. Now, when I choose the printer I want to use it doesn't show up. It is possible that I uninstalled something but I am not sure.View 3 Replies View Related
I have windows 7 on a acer notebook and able to use my HP 5610xi w/no problem. I recently bought an acer desktop emachine el1352g and cannot use my hp or some other software. It says that product cannot be installed with operating system. The only difference i can see is that the emachine desktop is a 64bit processor. I tried to go through hp (download driver) website but got no where.View 5 Replies View Related

I have two windows 7 computers. computer-A is connecting EPSON printer and I have enabled the file and printer sharing function. The file sharing function is working fine. Then I tried to add the printer in control panel on computer-B, it sees the epson printer but when I try to install the driver (download from computer-A) then it say unable to connect. I have try it on different computer-C it is saying the same thing. What should I do?
I have installed the EPSON driver in computer-B (hoping it would work)but still after the install the driver (download from computer-A) by itself then it says unable to connect the printer.
I have setup all the computers with the group name of WORKFROUP. You may wonder why I don't use the Windows 7 Homegroup, it is because I have some XP computers need to use that computer-A's printer. how to make the printer sharing works. [URL]

I have used 7 (64 bit) long enough to be confident in using it as my main Windows machine.
Part of that is being a print server. I am staying with Workgroups to allow connecting to Linux boxes using Samba.
I installed the printer just fine.
But I can't see how to share it.
Google searches helped me verify some things.
Under Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings I do have File and Printer Sharing enabled.
Under Advanced sharing settings I have set the radio button to Turn on file and printer sharing.
But when I go to Devices and Printers in Control Panel, and go to properties of the printer, I do not have a sharing tab. Or anything share related on the context menu.
I can access folders on other machines, and I can share folders, but I get prompted for a password on other machines even though I have disabled passwords. That is a lower priority.
How can I share the printer?
I have a laser printer that is abandoned by Canon (ImageClass D761).However, I have an old XP notebook that I can print to it..Can I share the printer through XP and print to it via Windows 7? There are no drivers for it in Windows 7..Or will I just have to make PDFs of everything I want to print and send them to the XP notebook and print from there.....?View 2 Replies View Related
I upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium from Vista on my desktop. My home wireless networ was running smoothly. Since the upgrade I am no longer able to access my printer (Canon i9100) from my laptop running XP. My XP recognizes the network complete with my W 7 desktop and my son's Mac mini. The XP just will not connect with the printer the printer is a USB printer that functions well if directly plugged into the XP. When I try to print from the laptop with the printer plugged into the Win 7 desktop tho, it doesn't find the printer.
When I try to "add a printer" to the XP through the Win 7, it keeps wanting to download the correct printer drivers but cannot find them anywhere. I have the original disk that contains the drivers but it will not load onto Win 7 (doesn't like 64 bit). Canon does have drivers for 64 bit so the printer works fine on Win 7. Is this too complicated a post? It's late and I'm pretty frustrated with the whole subject.
Ok so i made a homegroup and set it up on the other PC, i can get info off my sons PC but he cant use my printer or see my files. Whats going on ? I have the printer set to share i cant even see it on his PC. This file sharing stuff is not my strong point, can someone try to ease my burnen. All i need to do is let him share my printer.View 5 Replies View Related

how to share network printer to other users?View 5 Replies View Related
I have a working local Laserprinter under 64bit Win7. Through LAN another Win7 computer is connected. The remote computer can access local shared folders successfully. But it cannot access the local laser printer (connected through USB). How can I share the local printer to other computers in LAN? Do I have to define local printers explicitely as shared/accessible? Or are they automatically accessible (provided that the local user account and passwort is known at the remote computer? Do I have to install the printer driver in general at the remote computer as well or is the printer driver on the local computer enough?View 3 Replies View Related

Desktop has windows 7 7100 (64 bit)
Laptop has Vista Premium (32 Bit)
Desktop has USB wired HP j6480 all in one printer shared
Cannot connect to printer from laptop unless Windows 7 has login password enabled.
Any ideas on how to share this printer when windows 7 has no password
And also complicated, 'cos not even my CISCO Network teacher has been able to give me a solution. I think I need some smart people here The thing is that I can't share my printer (connected by USB to my PC) with my laptop on another room, over the local network (in Windows 7 the name is Home Group).The printer model is not relevant because time ago I was able to do what I'm trying now.All my configurations are OK, at least the basic ones, because there's definetely something wrong with my PC, and here's why: if I take my laptop and put it next to the printer and connect it to it (by the same USB cable), I can access the printer with my PC, while it's been shared by the laptop.That proves that the internal network is fine. Also, all the configurations of the printer and also of the home group are literally same in both PCs, the big one and the laptop.
Both PCs run Windows 7. I have tried this, Connect to printer error - Microsoft Windows Vista Community Forums - Vistaheads, but it didn't work.The printer is also properly installed on my PC, it is not a driver problem or something like that.My AV is ESET ESSBE 4, but I don't think it's related, because I have tried deactivating its firewall, and also, on the laptop the AV is the same and theprinter did work.The services are also equal in both PC's now. I have even tried changing the network adaptor on my PC (from Ethernet to Wifi). Nothing.I recently had problems with the home group, but they are solved by now. I guess the source of the problems is the same, but I don't know where else to look.

I recently switched from XP to Win7. Most things worked fine, except for the internet. At first the "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller" didn't work. But I found a driver for that one. Now there are just two things left: the "PCI Simple Communications-controller" does not work and the "Intel H5 Express chipset LPC interface controller - 3B06" isn't working either. I found these problems in the Device Manager.View 4 Replies View Related

This is not a specific Win 7 problem but it's involved so here goes!
I have four machines all connected to a switch, two wirelessly and two
wired. The router is wired also to the switch.
The two wired machines, one a laptop and one a desktop, both running Windows
XP, one wireless laptop is running Windows 7RC and the other Netbook,
Occasionally, like this afternoon, one of the wired machines and BOTH the
wireless machines will suddenly drop internet access, although access to
shared drives on the LAN is still there, yet the one XP wired laptop machine
does NOT drop internet access. The only way of returning access to the three
machines that have dropped it is re-boot the router, causing hassle to the
one machine that is still on the internet.
Can anyone tell me any reasons why this hugely irritating and totally
illogical scenario might come about?
can you, please, post how to reinsert (reintegrate) a WinMail and Gadgets platform in already installed OS Win 7 which is "lited" (with removed this features?View 1 Replies View Related

I am currently studying about file sharing and have recently developed an urge to create two volumes that can be shared across two Windows installations. One volume will be for the contents of the user files (My documents, My Music, Downloads, etc.) and the other would be for installed applications. The main reason I want to do this is because I am currently using a machine with a Windows 8 partition and a Windows 7 partition, and the whole process of having to copy the files and install the same programs to the other partition is really daunting, not to mention a huge increase in wasted space on the hard drive.The main issue I have with the first volume I want to create, is that I really have no idea how to integrate the user files in a way that both Windows installations can find it inside the same default location.All I could think of is maybe some kind of re-direct setting or file, but I still have no clue on how to do that. On the second partition, I have experimented with creating one similar to it for games only, but when I tried to run it on Windows 8, most of the programs needed to either reinstall, or have me manually add some dll files to the Windows 8 partition.View 2 Replies View Related

I often want to send an email attachment from my desktop or other directory. When I right click on the file, and click send to email recipient, i get an error telling me no email program is associated to perform this action.I don't have any stand alone email program s installed. I strictly use web based email (gmail & hotmail) as my mail programs. I do not wish to install a stand alone program such as outlook or Thunderbird. How can I associate my request to email to a recipient to automatically go to my web based email platform (gmail or hotmail) and send the mail?I cant seem to find a hack or a small program to install to tell Windows 7 to use my web based email as my program!View 3 Replies View Related

I would prefer to have windows in C drive and all my data in another drive. I don't need HP tools . Deleting this partition will enable me to have linux as dual boot( right now it is not possible as it has already 4 primary partitions ).Is it possible to reinstall windows 7 starter from a cd or pendrive and just enter the serial number given in the sticker at the bottom (like windows xp which came with an installation cd). This way I can partition it the way I want. If it is possible, where can i download an installation cd ?View 9 Replies View Related
