Specs: Windows 7 Starter
I can not add netbook run Windows 7 starter to network printer. I have a priter hookup to machine run windows XP Media Center Edition. I can share printer with my 2 other lap top with no problem. With the new netbook, I can see my network printer in Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Devices and Printers/Add Printer/Select a printer/the Add Printer. As soon as I clecked connect to printer, the system promped "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Access is denied." Can someone help?

Do you have administrator privileges when attempting to add the printer?

I do not have the administrator privileges set. Here is the thing that I do not understand. I uninstalled and re-install the printer on my other laptop. It has no problem. On other hand, I did same procedures to the net book, but it just doesn’t work. Do you think I will need to down load a printer driver to my net book, so It can talks to each other? Thanks for helping:)

Download WINDOWS 7 drivers for your printer for your Windows 7 computer, install, then add printer/network printer and select the model (apparently Windows 7 is not picking up the right driver for your printer).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
