thanks for your help, I did a systems restore and it's still not working. I have just uninstalled both printers and am re-installing them. my local computer repair shop wants me to bring in the printers and tower (that would be my LAST resort) - I am on a home network and I can't print from either computer, I am about to pull my hair out I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO frustrated.
