Printers can bring you a lot of joy, you can print so many things, including greeting cards, things you find on the internet, however when things go bad, it may be hard to figure out what the problem could be. Let’s say your printer isn’t working, you can’t get it to print. First you try the disk but, for whatever reason, you get nothing. The next step is get on the internet, go to the website that is the printer’s manufacturer.

Be it Acer, Gateway, E-machine, Dell, HP, or Apple. You should also be able to  find the manual should you need one at the same place. So, once you get to the website, say HP, you will be asked the model of the printer, after you type this in, you have the choice of 32 or 64 bit, how do you know which one you have? Below is link of an article I wrote on this subject.

Once you have determined if it is 32 or 64, click Next, this will give you the download for the driver, if you want the manual, if you look to the top where you see “User Guide“and this will take to the right page. Now, let’s say your printing however, the print is sporadic, it prints the first two lines, however, the third line is missing. Windows 8 users will need to go to the search bar, and type in device and printers or move mouse to the bottom left corner, right-click on control panel and then go to devices and printers.

For apple users click the link below:

The next step is to go to the control panel, devices and printers, Locate your printer, right-click on printer icon, move down where you see printing Preferences, here you have the option to choose either portrait or Landscape. Click on tab “paper Quality”,  move down where you see media, click tab, to either “plain paper fast draft quality or plain paper best quality.”   click apply and OK. This should fix any print from missing from the text on the paper.   If this doesn’t work you may have to replace your ink cartridge.

Check the Battery

So, today lets talk about, how crazy things can get. Last week, I needed to print out something, tried to print on Windows 8, but for whatever reason, the printer was not compatible, so, I grabbed my laptop with Windows 7, and connected it, without the cord, so, threw in the battery. Tried to connect the printer but, for whatever reason, it failed to install even with the disk that came with the printer. so, went to the internet, or say tried. I believe I prayed to get the printer to work.

When I returned the next day, tried to get on the internet, couldn’t get on the internet and now the graphics had switched to classic, which is something I never use. I couldn’t figure this out. figured my computer was on its last leg, already the CD-rom was not working, now, there was no internet and somebody must have been  inside the computer, at least that was my thought.We can think of all sorts of things when the computer is not working properly.

Maybe, the Wireless connector was also going out. I decided to restart the computer. There on the screen appeared that the battery had an issue and needed replacing, I removed the battery and guess what everything worked, printer, internet and Windows 7 was back to its normal graphics. My point is this if you are having issues with your laptop, first remove the battery and see if that fixes your problem.
