Printer printing random letters and numbers

Q: Printer printing random letters and numbers

It took me all day to figure it out but I finally got my printer to share from my PC to my Macbook...but the only problem now is that when I print from my Macbook my printer just prints out random strings - letters and numbers. It also will just constantly spew out these pages - it doesn't stop unless I cancel the print. Doesn't matter what I print. I read on another forum that it might be related to missing fonts, but I can't verify this. Any ideas?

I have an HP Photosmart All-in-One C4200 series printer.
Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have Windows Vista, and when I go into Desktop->Username-> I have all the usual Documents, Pictures, etc., but I also have two empty folders labeled with random letters and numbers.

A:Folders with random numbers and letters. Changing Computer name?

The folders you are finding in the AppData folder are just temporary folders used for things such as installations. It won't do you any harm to delete 'em, obviously because they are empty, but it also won't harm you to just leave them. If you are worried, just make sure you have an Anti-Virus with Real-time scanning. Do a full scan with Malwarebytes too, its more effective than other solutions.

I do not understand your second problem much. Are you trying to say that your User account folder in C:/Users/ has a different name than your User name? And does your real proper User Name show up in the Control Panel?

I removed a data drive form my computer the other day. After that I found a bunch folders
in the root directory. They have random numbers & letters in them. For Example
8081772c645ba749f would be a folder name. I have seen these type of numbers
on other dirves I have.

What is this all about and is this a security problem?
Should I try to get rid of them and clean things up?

Some of those files have a file call HotFix in them.
The folders will not delete using Internet Explorier?
There are other files in the folders that seem to be Hotfix related.
Thank you,

They are temp folders used by Windows. In most cases they are perfectly safe to delete. They aren't hurting anything and if Windows Explorer won't let you delete them it's because some of the files are in use.

The old post also mentioned these are temp files and can be deleted. Good luck with that. Most of these no matter how old they are will not delete. All I want to see on D is data. I don't like having to scroll for a mile to get to my first folder.
 

A:Hard drives with unknown folders that contains random Numbers & Letters

Unless you can find out what is creating these files/folders you won't be able to do much about where they get saved. Are they folders? or files? some files with random letters and numbers can often be attributed to an infection, but there can also be a few files of this nature that are legitimate and harmless. If you want to delete them and access is denied you can take ownership and they will then be deletable.

Let us see a DDS log as that may give some clues as to the nature of these files/folders and with a little help from us we may be able to figure out there origin.
Please go Here and follow the instructions to run DDS, then Copy and Paste both the logs into your next reply. You need not run HJT or GMER.

A:Printer printing random emails !?

As far as I know the problem is not with windows. The problem probably lies with the keyboard. There might be some problem with the keys. Sometimes if the printer driver is not installed properly or if your friend has done something with the preferences then such kind of thing can happen. This is not a very usual problem, so you need to first check these things or else take the computer to the service center.

If there is some software update or anything I can do to let me type the full password, please let me know!

This seems to happen at random times and I cant get rid of it unless I restart the PC, which is what makes me think this is a software, not a hardware problem because my keyboard should be fine really. This only started happening a few weeks after I had made a fresh installation of Windows 7 (previously used XP).

Basically the problem: All of a sudden a random number of keys that are supposed to type letters type random numbers instead. The number of letter keys afflicted on average is probably around 10-30% of the total keys. Which keys are afflicted and what numbers they produce is random.

So when i type "This sucks" I might get instead "th5s 4u34s". Also functions bound to Q in a video game will not function when I actually pres Q in case it would produce a number while typing.

I had an external keyboard attached to the laptop and it works fine.
Things I have tried:
turning off the number lock
disabling macros

A:IBM Laptop keyboard typing numbers instead of letters

Hello! I had the same problem! The "Num Lk" key activates the numeric keyboard (blue characters). The "Fn" (Function Key) will turn it off, or vice-versa (can't remeber exactly)! Anways, just press the "num lk" and the "fn" key and it should return to normal!

A:Keyboard is typing numbers instead of letters? (NUM LOCK IS NOT ON)

If this is a laptop see if this helps.

If you're writing numbers instead of letters when you press the keyboard of your laptop and you must hold down the Function key (Fn) to write normally.

This is due to the fact that the digital lock is activated. To solve this, simply press the Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk

I have sought a solution for this problem for a few weeks and cannot find one.

My notebook is an HP Pavilion dv9005ca Laptop (17in. screen) and has a separate numeric keypad. Running Windows XP SP2 with all patches.

The keys: M,JKL,UIO produce numeric characters (0 to 6) when the num lock key is on and the correct characters when it is off (some other keys on that side of the keyboard produce symbols found on the numeric keypad).

Following HP support suggestion at [url not allowed:-( ] I have tried the Fn + num lock combination but this does nothing.

When I first boot up the characters are normal until the num lock key is toggled.

At some point a while ago when entering text I believe I inadvertently pressed a combination of keys that caused this problem.

I hope someone can help.

Hello bona, I am SifuMike and I will be helping you. Let's run Ewido AnitMalware and see what it finds.I recommend that you download and use CCleaner prior to scanning with Ewido in order to speed up the scan by removing all the temp/junk files. Download CCleaner and install it. (default location is best). Do not run it yet! CCleaner TutorialNote: We will be deleting all temp files. Before using CCleaner, make sure you do not have any files in the Temp folder that you want to keep. If so, then move them to another folder. Let's empty the temp files: Run CCleaner. 1. Starting with v1.27.260, CCleaner installs the Yahoo Toolbar as an option which IS checkmarked by default during the installation.IF you do NOT want it, REMOVE the checkmark when provided with the option OR download the toolbarfree Basic version instead of the Standard Build. 2. Before first use, select Options > Advanced and UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours" 3. Then select the items you wish to clean up. In the Windows Tab: ? Clean all entries in the "Internet Explorer" section including Cookies. ? Clean all the entries in the "Windows Explorer" section. ? Clean all entries in the "System" section. ? Clean all entries in the "Advanced" section. ? Clean any others that you choose. In the Applications Tab: ? Clean all cookies in the Firefox/Mozilla section if you use it. ? Clean all in the Opera section if you use it. ? Clean Sun Java in the Internet Section. ? Clean any others that you choose. 4. Click the "Run Cleaner" button. 5. A pop up box will appear advising this process will permanently delete files from your system. 6. Click "OK" and it will scan and clean your system. 7. Click "exit" when done. If it asks you to reboot at the end, click NO.

A:Right Side Of Keypad Only Displays Numbers - No Letters ?

If you plug in another keyboard it is fine. Hmm off hand it sounds to me like it is a problem with the on board keyboard. That is a real feat on a laptop to replace. Is the laptop still in warrantee? If so I would call Samsung tech support right away, as a matter of fact I would call them on this matter anyway, they may have something about this that might just be covered by a recall or something, and they are the experts at their equipment.

I have a HP laptop keyboard that isn't responding correctly. It displays a "1q 2w 3e 4r 7u 8i 9o 0p" on the screen when the respective letter is typed. I undestand how the "Fn" key and the "Num Lock" key works but this is not the issue. Any advice to remedy this would be appreciated. I've had this laptop for 18 months and it just started doing this. I can't seem to find anyone on the internet that is having the exact same problem. They only have what appears to be a similar issue but not this exact number letter combination.

Hi,

Help! I have to show a group of school kids how to do this but I haven't used Access in years so don't know how to do it myself :s

For an Access project I need to be able to generate a unique student ID, which combines letters from the students name with a sequential number that is always one more than the highest currently in use. I have a forename field so I plan on using the first two letters of the forename plus a unique number. Is it possible to auto ID this?

Any advice would be appreciated.
Paul
 

A:Access - Create unique ID combining letters and numbers

Off the top of my head I can't think of one. My suggestion would be to create a field that concatenates the first two letters from the forename field with an autonumber field. The autonumber field will give you your sequential numbers and the concatenate field will give your unique identifiers.

Hi,

I've used Word 2007's Multilevel List feature many times, but only with numbers (I'm very comfortable with setting up the lists and they've always worked in the past). I now need to do a mixture of numbers and letters on one level and I can't seem to make that happen. For example, Level 3 might typically be 1.1.1, but my client wants 1.1.A. Now, I can make that happen on Level 3 without a problem. The issue starts in Level 4. For example, say I had worked my way down in the document from 1.1.A to 1.1.C and I wanted to insert a Level 4 after this 1.1.C. I would need it to automatically insert a 1.1.C.1, and I can't seem to make that happen when I'm setting up the list. It always wants to change the entire list to either all numbers or all letters. Any help?

Thanks!

Good morning (to those of you in the western hemisphere).

In MS Word, when I insert page numbers into a doc, and look in print view, I can see the numbers (in light gray) at the bottom of the page. But when I print the document, NO NUMBERS?

A:printing page numbers

Try increasing:

Your bottom margin to 1.25"
Your footer margin to .75"

If that works, you may want to do it in a plain document, then hit the "default" button. Many printers, particularly those we use at home, aren't capable of printing that close to the bottom of the page.

I have a very long document. I want to condense it to as few pages as possible, but I want the page break lines and pages numbers to show as well. (I want to be able to know which page I'm on even though the document has been reduced for printing purposes.)

I have documents like this from other people, but I can't figure out how to print them that way myself. The one I have is 460 pages, but has been condensed onto 90 pages when printed. The page breaks appear when I print and I can see the original page numbers as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi,

For my expense reports I number the receipts according to the line numbers but when I print the sheets, the line numbers and column headings disappear. How can I print them?

Thanks for your help.

A:printing the line numbers in excel

What line numbers ? do you mean Excels row numbers? You can print them by going to File/pagesetup, and on the Sheet tab check off Print Row and Column Headings.

If that is not what you mean then while in the Sheet tab still, is there a range set in the Print Area, that may be excluding your rows and columns?

Hi everyone,

I've got a problem which I feel is going to be easy to solve, but I think I'm lacking that crucial nugget of knowledge to achieve it! I've tried a couple of similar things in VBA that I've picked up on the web, but I just cant get it to work.

What I'd like to do to the attached spreadsheet (sample attached) is where the number '1' is displayed in 'H20' for that to display a different number on each printed copy.

It needs to print numbers 1-22, then 29-42, then 51-54.

Ideally, I'd also like to add a 'Print' button to the spreadsheet so that just pressing that would automate the whole process, but one step at a time!

Thanks for your time!

Hi,

I work for a pie company that uses recipes to track the batch numbers of the ingredients used.

So we print out a recipe page (in MS Word and excel) each time the recipe is made and they write the batch code next to the ingredient.

What I would like is to have a sequential number (or even a random 5 digit) at the top of the page that changes each time the page is printed.

This then gives me a unique number for each batch produced.

I hope that makes sense and the solution is easy....?

Thanks for all/any posts.

Hi,

I am printing out these feedback forms which are being handed out to the public along with a CD my organisation is making. Nobody is replying to them, so in order to encourage people to respond, I thought I would number the sheets like a raffle, and one or two lucky people could win a prize.

What I need to do is number the handouts, eg 001, 002, 003, 004..... there would be 400 handouts, so I would like to do this automatically. I was thinking of putting the number at the bottom of the document.

Could someone tell me how to do this? The feedback forms are on MS Word 2000.
I can't find anything useful on the net, but I am sure it is a very common thing for people to do!

I have a user who has a document that is split into sections.
For each section she wants the pages numbers to show page x of y.
For example Section 1 is 20 pages she wants it to show page 1 of 20 page 2 of 20 etc.
This is working on screen. When she prints the document and we have had others try as well the page numbers show Page 1 of 1 page 2 of 2 page 3 of 3 and all the way to 20.

I don't understand why this will show correctly on screen but not printed.
Any ideas???

I have a hp computer connected to a wireless linsky router and printer server. The computer starts printing for a while then it stops. When I look in my print jobs it shows the info is waiting to be printed and sometimes it says printer paused. The only way I can get it to print the jobs listed is to restart my computer and it automatically prints all the jobs. Also, if I go in to cancel the jobs it will not print anything until I restart.
 

A:Network printer stops printing/ or says printer pause

How are you connected? By what sort of network and what is the device in the printer to which you plug the network card.
This is fairly common in our area with those using Belkin Wireless.
But we find that most clients are not properly connecting everything in the network... using the Microsoft and HP network troubleshooting usually cures the problem.

Hi,

I need to perform the following query:

'update table table_name set field_name=cast(int, rand()*100+1)'

The problem is that rand() returns the same 'random' number for all fields.
Is there any way to generate efficient random numbers - and a different one for each entry to be updated?

D.
 

A:Generating random numbers in sql

it sounds like you may be calling the rand function only once and updating all the fields with the returned number.
you can try a couple of things..
1. create variables for each of the fields you want to update, define each as a separate rand function call, and update the row using the variables.
2. repeat the update statement for each field separately?

which database are you using?
