"An unexpected internal error has occurred" while Scanning by TracyJ
This issue started a while back. I have an _HP_C6180_All-in-one_ machine. Whenever I try to scan using the HP Solution Center on my laptop, this error comes up. I can scan to a flashdrive by using the buttons on the unit itself so that's fine. I have un-installed the driver (with HP's help by way of their specialized windows cleanup utility software). I then re-installed the driver they gave...

"HP Universal Printing" driver crashes explorer by Ron Lowe
Hi, all. I'm trying to install the recently-released HP Universal Print driver for some Laserjet 4050n network printers, on Vista Ultimate ( 32 bit ). I'm currently using the in-box drivers that shipped with Vista succesfully, printing via a "Standard TCP/IP port". I was waiting for a more full-featured driver from HP, and it seems to be released, but I can't make it work.

"Print what" default in Word 2007 by Paddy
I hope I've posted this in the right forum. I've recently converted to Vista, which came with Word 2007. When I want to print a document in Word 2007, the default "Print what" option is "Document showing markup." How do I change this to default to "Document"? Thank you

"Scale to fit" print option never works by Shaun
I have tried it on several printers, previously on XP and now on Vista Ultimate and it never works. What I expect it to do is resize an image so that it fits on the page. What it does is nothing. I doesn't resize the image at all, as far as I can see, let alone fitting it onto the page. Am I not using this feature correctly, or is it a bug in Windows that MS never seem to get around to...

"Standard TCP/IP port" gone missing by janbon
Hi, I have two Vista boxes experiencing the same problem. They were both configured to print using the "standard TCP/IP port" and it worked beautifully. Now, all of a sudden the printers on both machines appeared offline, and the "standard TCP/IP port" was missing and could not be added. It simply is not on the list anymore. I have checked the registry, and standard tcp/ip is still listed...

"The media is write protected" error by Safai
Hi everybody. Excuse me for openning up an old issue. I could not find a good answer on the internet. Recently I changed my hard disk, WITHOUT changing the fax store folder; it is "d:\users\documents\fax" as it was before. Since then, when I try to send a fax, I get this error: "The media is write protected". Anyone knows what is wrong?

(Vista) Windows Fax and Scan - Update in SP1???? by Donald Mills
I've been a user of MS Fax since early days. Still have Windows Fax and Scan (WFS) with Vista Ultimate. Sure, it's not flashy, but it works (has for me anyway). My question is this: with the upcoming SP1 for Windows Vista, are the shortcomings of WFS going to be addressed? In particular the inability to access 'old' fax files after a reinstall of Vista and subsequent reinstall of WFS? The...

*Installing device driver software* prompt - no longer appears by [email protected]
Think I posted this to the wrong group earlier... I am trying to install a USB HP 2840 on Windows Vista. There is a compatibility issue with this printer and Vista, but there is a workaround. 1) the driver at the hp website does not work 2) the workaround from HP does work (please see attached). I know it works because I have successfully installed it on a fresh build Vista.
