Are you using Linux or Vista OS?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

I have both, so which ever one the printer will work with is fine with me. Printer worked perfectly until the Linux and Kapresky were installed. Beyond frustrated. Even took it to the computer that installed the afore mentioned.

Is it a usb connected printer?

Linux should see it and use it and for that matter so should vista. It makes me think there is some issue with the usb port or bios disabled usb ports maybe.

If it is network then it should still work unless your nic is somehow different of connector off or such.
