Solved: Printing 4 Columns from 2 columns in excel

Q: Solved: Printing 4 Columns from 2 columns in excel

Ok I am trying to print a spreadsheet format list. I have about 30000
title-artist entries in 2 columns. I am basically trying to print pages 1 & 2, 3-4, 5-6 and so on the same page without shrinking them way down. I want it to be just like I printed 2 columns but with 4 instead. I want to use the left side of the page for page 1 and the left side for page 2. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Here again since I have the most weird problem ever which I have never seen nor heard of before. I recently upgraded the OS on a friends computer, from Vista to 7. However now I can't seem to get the onboard ethernet adapter to work, it can't be seen in device manager nor anywhere else. I have tried to reset the bios (by removing the cmos battery) and I have also checked that the network adapter is set to 'Enabled'. Also, when I connect the cable to the ethernet port no lights go on, it doesn't give any sort of hope what so ever. The cable is ok, the "modem" is ok, and everything else seems to be in order and yet it doesn't work.

Computer in question:
HP Pavilion 6530sc
Non-default GPU and added 1Gb RAM

A:Solved: Computer doesn't recognize the network adapter

Whenever you install a new OS, always take note of the model of core system hardware like GPU, chipset, and ethernet/wifi (there are a few others that aren't as important, but nice to have updated) since those are critical to your computers core functionality.

However, a quick google search of your model yielded me with your PC's system specs. Your PC contains a Realtek RTL8201N ethernet adapter. So far I am unable to find a driver from Realtek itself and the HP driver is not Realtek, but instead nVidia nForce.

So after a bit of searching, I came across this: it seems to me that you have an old chipset from nVidia. I am not completely sure, but I think you have an ION chipset. Try installing this ION chipset driver (64 bit) ==OR== this ION chipset driver (32 bit) and tell me if it works. It should include the necessary component drivers and if it works, it means you have an ION chipset like I suspected.

Here are the specifications for your PC BTW.

I am in an office building with 40 or so tenants. The entire building is wired to one central network (let's call it main network) controlled by SonicWall where each office has one live network drop. The main network is set up in such a way that tenants can plug in their own switches and routers if they want more network connected devices in their office. The office building has a network printer connected to main network where tenants can print to it. However, when tenants have their own routers in their office you cannot really connect to the network printer that is connected to main network. Is there something I can port, bridge or set-up where they can print to it?

A:Printing to network printer on another network

I think that as long as the tenant's router is connected to the main network they should still be able to access that printer provided that the WAN IP address of their routers is within the IP range of the main network where the Network printer is attached.

A:Printing Problems

First, quit all programs. Use cmd->notepad to open a new text file, type some gobldee gook on 2-2 lines and <ctl>p to print it - - DOES IT?

If so, the print driver is fine and so is the system - - MS Word needs to see a new default printer.

Why would the printer change from normal operation change to printing emails in cryptic
I'm asking this to try help out my neighbor . But I was wondering if the email was the cause ?
regards drecked

A:Printer started printing cryptic text

Open NOTEPAD, type a few lines and the <ctl>P to print it.

If it is reproduced correctly, then it's the goofy email,

otherwise, disconnect power, wait a minute or two,
then go through the printer settings and test again.

Still having a problem, download and install new firmware from the vendor.

I work in an office with about 15 people. I want people to print in black and white by default. Any way to do this?

Most people are using Windows 7.

Is there a way to just print in black and white for firefox? I can't figure that out either.

A:Printing in black and white?

For each machine;

go to the default printer
get the properties
look for the Print Gray Scale choice
set and save it
If the print driver doesn't have the option, then you're out of luck.

Once set, ALL applications will get this default, but can get color again by using the printer options;
eg <ctl>P in the application, -> Properties -> select B&W vs Color

I'm using a xerox Docucolor 3535 built in fiery printer and I cant seem to get it printing...

I decided to upgrade my computer from xp to vista and installed the driver ( pcl6 ) for the printer and it worked (got the driver and such), the computer was formatted to xp again to use some older programs not printer related and the drivers worked but then it crashed and we decided to use vista but the drivers wont work. We pinged (command prompt) the printers ip (which was correct) it pinged OK but no printing.

Finally put on back the xp but still nothing (this is 32 bit Serivice pack 2) still pings but no printing...

I tried almost all that I know but still not printing any help?

A:Xerox Docucolor 3535 not printing

Did you try setting the printer port settings from Raw to LPR and the Queue name to "print" (w/o quotes)?
Other than that double check the driver you are using is the Fiery version of the printer. Sometimes they release them with different print controllers, so have multiple drivers depending on which printer controller the copier is using.

Hi there I am new to this forum though I have went through a couple of threads regarding VPN but I can t seem to find my answer through printing VPN Local I work in an IT department and have to users which are not on the business domain To make use of a program hosted on our server they connect via VPN to out network and then join a remote desktop Both of them make use of a network printer Now one of them has a PC with Win and the other one with XP When they connect to the VPN though only the user on the Win PC is allowed to print the other user Local printing through VPN s job only goes into the print queue and he has to disconnect from the VPN and then it prints Both user Local printing through VPN s VPN permissions are the same as I asked the network admin and the printer settings should be the same on both PCs as I checked them Help would be greatly appreciated as I have been working on this for a very long time with no avail Thanks nbsp

A:Local printing through VPN

the other user's job only goes into the print queue and he has to disconnect from the VPN and then it prints.Click to expand...

Wow, is that strange or what (but that's why your here too I guess). The fact that it is queued says the data path from the user->system->print queue is just fine - - and that says permissions are ok. I suspect that the users program is not closing the output file. Have the user try a simple test using NOTEPAD printing to the remote printer.

Next I would look for software updates to the XP VPN software and then to XP print driver for that device.

I have a printer which ive used for a couple years now (epson workforce 610) and suddenly it stopped printing...

whenever i tell it to print something it gives me the screen in the bottom right witht he printer the printing bar etc, but the bar never moves, the printer never makes a sound, and eventually i get an error message saying the document failed to print. nothing else..

i dont think its driver related, since i doubt the printer magically updated, and it connected to the wireless network bc i can "use" it on another computer. however the other computer has the same issue with documents failing to print.

any ideas, thoughts, or solutions would be greatly appreciated - iap

It seems as though that every wireless connection that I come across has this problem lately. Every single one. I am confused, is it just me?

I suggest a clean reinstall of the OS and drivers from scratch. Clean out your PC, re-seat all the components and continue with a fresh install of OS, drivers, etc.

If that doesn't work, then it's an issue with your card or the PCI-E slot on the motherboard.

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?

One minute it was printing and then the next page was, nothing. If I try to run the auto alignment I get the error, orange flashing, reset, and then the same thing. Does this mean the printer head is gone?

My screen has columns which are not viewable. There is about an inch of viewable clear space, followed by a garbled column about an inch wide, then another inch of good viewable space, then another inch of a garbled column, and so on all the way across the screen from left to right. It looks like a grid of vertical blind columns. I can drap a window left and right and the contents of the window are viewable as I move it left and right. I hope I'm making sense here. I'm not sure if this is a hardware issue or if i have a display setting wrong.

Is printing quality depends on software? If yes then suggest me good software

A:Question about printing quality

Not really. It depends on the quality of the printer heads, ink, ink feeds, and the paper onto which you wish to print.
The quality of the image can be controlled by the software, but it depends on what you wish to print.

I have just been looking at an Epson photo PX FW printer connected to a pc running Vista printing Strange problem which is printing erratically if asked to print a test page it will probably print OK but if I ask it to print another page it wil print about of the page and then pull more blank paper through the printer untill all available paper has been pulled through it doesn t print anything on these sheets If I leave it for a while and ask it Strange printing problem to print again it will print one good page and then print as above appprox and then blank sheets I have tried using the printer as a standalone copier and it will copy and print without a problem it only prints strangely from Strange printing problem the pc I have uninstalled and reloaded the drivers downloaded the latest drivers from the Epson website but to no avail Incidentally this printer was bought in the last few days because their previous printer an HP had started doing the same thing so they assumed a new printer would resolve the problem As the Strange printing problem Epson will print fine as a standalone copier I assume the problem to be a communication problem between pc and printer or a software problem as the same thing happened with an HP printer it can t be printer software therefore it must be something else on the pc but at the moment I can t think of anything Have any of you guys any thoughts on the problem nbsp

I want to put this up just encase anyone had the same problem I did and if I remember correctly there were a few people that posted the same problem on other forums The problem When I ran anything very graphically intensive like crysis furmark or when I ran a game without vsync on my PC would crash and I would just see lines on the screen or just see blackness 4850 Crashing problem solved I even got a replacement for my card and they said it was faulty and sent me a new one but it still happened just less often Solution In your bios set the pcie frequency to not auto How came to this conclusion I had just helped my friend build a PC for the first time and he had done a lot of research and as we were overclocking his CPU he mentioned that he heard you should set the pcie frequency on your motherboard to not auto or it will overclock itself during intense graphics After I had a few more crashes I remembered him mentioning this 4850 Crashing problem solved so I tried it and no more crashing not even in furmark So thanks to him I don t have to worry about crysis cashing anymore and I can finally overclock nbsp

Umm no that wouldnt work. You need a device called a print server to be able to do this. Just search amazon for them. Or you could always make your own i guess if you have a spare computer lieing around.
If you have a desktop pc that the printer is currently connected to you can always make a share of the printer on the dekstop, only problem with this is that desktop must be turned on at all times for the laptop to access the printer.

My Laserjet 1020 was working fine but is now not printing on my desktop - Windows XP operating system. Only change that has been made is to change the printer cartridge from colour to black. I have tried deleting the printer and then reinstalling it. The install works fine and the printer is recognised and installed on the computer. However when you print a test page, or a page from anywhere for that matter, the print is sent to the queue but fails to print. It is as if the print command is not getting out of the USB port down to the printer. I have tried different USB ports on the computer but still no print. 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.

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.

I take it that the extra 256Meg of Ram did not originally come from HP
I'm not sure if that's relevant or not, but even same rating Ram (but different manufacture) has been known to cause issues (ie best to use exactly the same Ram cards always)

I was discussing a similar matter earlier on here: Windows will not boot with more than 2gb of ram (although the emphasis in that thread was the 2Gig max, before installing Windows, and strangeness of having increased ram in a system)

Either way, thanks for your post, it was interesting to note this issue (and likely cause)
Many times during a Setup fault, I have advised members to remove extra Ram cards and try again. It may be that the originally recorded Ram (under re-imaging) may be the answer (on some computers that may have Setup problems) Sadly you would need to test this issue on 10 similar, same spec, computers to really confirm. Or contact HP technical support, or possibly their tech forum, to ask of others experiences.

Of late I found my desktop PC crashing now and then. The situation was getting worse by the day and it was becoming frustrating to use the PC.

I opened the box and got my fingers dirty, so before I looked further I decided to blow out all the dust with a vacuum cleaner. Loads of dust billowed out. I would recommend holding the CPU fan blades so that it does not spin uncontrollably.

After the dust clean up, the PC is working great and no unwanted crashes. I guess the dust was preventing the cooling of the CPU.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

your print head is clogged and needs to be cleaned. If the automatic cleaning does not work, you can try manual cleaning with 100% isopropyl alcohol bath and qtips. If that doesn't work, replace the head.

Over the last few months my Canon MP730 has been printing with bands or white lines through the black ink and also won't print colors at times. I've tried to do ALL of the cleaning methods through the software and on the printer itself which used to help...for a time. Now it no longer helps.

At this point I'm thinking it is maybe the print head? Instead of buying a new one, does anyone know how to properly clean it on this model?

Many thanks!!!

A:Canon MP730 - banded printing

I'm not sure on that model specifically
But you need to clean all the rollers (I used, like a damp lightly soapy cloth)
Any mirrors, or metalic panels with metho
Any fuser wires, with a brush
Confirm all dry
Then high pressure air all over! (although remove toner cartridges, and any other removable parts first)

so does it sound like a wire issue or the psu giving the issue?cause as soon as i switched it to the molex to sata instead of the other sata connect in the utra x3 which uses different wires and different ports it worked.

a waste of 184 but i got better hds and i can just sell the 2 500 gig wd drives i got

Windows CUPS printing

One technique is call CUPS (Common Unix Printing System)

This article describes same.

The target system (the one with the printer) needs port forwarding of port 631 to the lan system with the printer.

Client: Windows

** NOTE: If using Windows ME or earlier you might need Windows patches for IPP printing. The ME one is here **

To add your IPP printer, first get into the "Add a Printer" wizard. It's accessible by:
Start > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes > Add a new Printer

Now that you're in the Wizard, click "Next". It will ask if you're adding a local or networked printer - Select Networked.

Enter your address as:

When it asks for a driver, select the "Generic" category and then as a printer model select the "MS Publisher Imagesetter" printer.

Finish the wizard, and now you should be able to print via the IPP printing.Click to expand...

Print sharing can be made to operate across the WAN, but that is a security risk
for your File Shares. CUPS would not expose Print/File sharing (ports 139,445)

MICR toner cartridges are sold for laser printers so you can print checks that are magnetically encoded to satisfy banks and the scanners at retail stores.

I discovered an added advantage by accident.

The MICR toner in the cartridges sold at is darker than regular toner and other MICR toner I found. This has allowed me to use printer darkness settings as low as 1 (on the 1 to 10 scale) and I still get solid black text when I print regular documents.

Bottom line is, after some testing, I figured out that using the MICR toner cartridge is cheaper (more printed pages) than buying several regular toner cartridges for my laser printer.

hello everyone
can someone tell me something
is it possibile that when you print from DOS the printing quality is better then when you print from win?


Of course. The WIndows printer driver can be crappy or the printer can be misconfigured there.

hi, being a beginner to computers i think i have made a mistake.

i have just bought a new laptop which came with a sp2 recovery disk.
i used this disk to reformat my old hp pavillion computer instead of using its disk and now im having problems booting.

when first installed the computer was running great untill i rebooted.
all i get now is the blue hp screen for a second and then the screen goes blank. no error messages or anything.
i have tried to reboot using the original xp disk(sp1). it tells me its checking disk and then itall goes blank again. i have also tried to boot from fdisk but it tells me to replace disk and try again. (made disk off another comp running xp sp1.

can anyone please help me.

A:xp booting problem not solved

The system disk is made for the system it came with. Recovery disks work mainly on the computers that they're designed for. For instance, my parents' Sony has a system recovery tool that reinstalls Windows and installs all of the systems programs in a specific way that would not work in any other machine.

A:wireless printing

All you need is a wireless router that both your desktop and Notebook will be connected to. Then you activate file and printer sharing. On the laptop you then go into add a priter and do a search for all network printers. The one sharing from the desktop should show up. Go through the network set up to install the drivers on the notebook and then you are all set.

you can buy a wireless print server which will have a usb connection. then you will be able to just add the printer to your wireless network. from what ive seen these are $60-80. instead of buying one i just take my laptop to the printer when i need to print, but i dont print that often...if you have to print alot it might be worth it...unless you can find one cheaper or possible used

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

From what I can gather. This seems to be a fairly common problem with Lexmark printers.

Sorry, but I don`t know how to fix your problem.

The only advice I can give is. Ditch the Lexmark, and get a Canon printer. Much more reliable, and a damn site cheaper to run. I.E the cartridges won`t cost you an arm and a leg.

Ok i have looked through the forum and haven't noticed where I could put this..but lets see what is out here.

I have networked my printer for printer sharing. When I print ANYTHING off of the shared port the resulting pages have PAGE x (where x is the number of pages printing at that point) and the computer address that is initiating the printing.

my question is...How do I remove that from the pages being printed? Is it a tweak or reg edit. I looked up Banners but that is a totally diffrent subject and mine is turned off anyways.

A:network printing failure from second pc

That can be caused by a lot of things, it would help us help u if u provide more information, such as your network settings, printer used, computers and OS

Is the printer connected to a computer and shared to others via network, or is it a network printer, connected directly to the network? If it's connected to a computer, can it print from that computer? Have u checked the "file and printer sharing" in network setting? Have u shared the printer from the master computer? Have u tried reinstalling the printer driver?

Installed print server using wizard
Installed new printer (HP) using the print server port
Test Page - nothing - print manager status show printing but nothing.

Used Hawkings config software.
Print server along with printer shows up - says congratulations - would you like to print a test page - yes - nothing!!!

Tried a different printer (Lexmark) - same results.

Any suggestions as I continue to wait for a non-busy tone reply from Hawkings?

A:Upgraded BIOS added an LPT1.4 port , Printing wrecked

Many motherboard BIOS default setting for printer port is SPP (Standard Printer Port) not bi-directional.
When you flashed the BIOS it was probable reset to the default SPP.

Delete both printer ports in Windows and then boot into the motherboard BIOS.
Enter the BIOS and set the printer port to ECP/EPP.
Boot back into Windows and let it detect the printer port.

I have two computers..both with Win XP SP2. I have a Lexmark Z52 printer connected to cpu1 via USB. I set up printer sharing on both cpu's.
On cpu2 I tried to print from the Lexmark. The software on cpu1 said "printing started" [yes- Lexmark talks] but the printer did not print. It then said "printing completed" I believe the software is correct and the printers are shared correctly but wonder if the USB cable from printer to hub to cpu1 is not sending the command.

Any ideas will be appreciated.(I hate printers with all talk and no action)

A:Very annoying printing

Put the paper in straight?

It may be that the paper feeder is set too tight and it drags the paper to the side or some problems with the roller set. Rollers are something that wear down in printers and replacing them is routine maintenance (that is if your printer is several years old).

It would help if you told us what kind of a printer it is.

After re-installing my HP 4070, the scanning software showed only TIFF and
Compressed TIFF options while earlier I had JPG and BMP.

To get back BMP and JPG options, I deleted the Registry entry under HKEY_USER....
Software\Hewlett-Packard\DigitalImaging\CUE Settings\0000_4070]
"ScanPreferencesSettings", and Run the HP Scanning software.
It will recreate the Key with default settings and the next time you start the
HP scanning software you will have all the four save options.

Backup registry before trying this! Modify the registry at your own risk!
You can highlight the Hewlett-Packard entry and export from file menu to a
desktop file for backup of just this entry. If something seems wrong, double
click on the exported file to restore the original settings in the registry.

Happy Scanning! - Raj

I'm hoping someone will take pity and help me with this problem, but after reading all the *Hate* Lexmark printers posts. puke:
I don't know, but here's the deal:

I have a Lexmark x6170 All in One and the black ink was low and printing light... no biggie. Then I added a new black cartridge, but it was still light.

Nothing has worked. I've gone into the *control panal* and moved the light/dark arrow to the darkest. I've pulled the cartridge, the USB cord and just for the fun, reinstalled the driver. All of which was in vain and now I need some advice:

Is there anything else I can do? My warranty is up at the end of the month, of course. So, the clock is ticking...

Thanks, S

A:Lexmark x6170 doc printing light

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Somewhere in the Lexmark software is a cleaning programme that will clean the print heads. Try that, if it don`t solve the problem, could it be that the new cartridge is faulty?

You could always have it looked at under the terms of the warranty. Even though the warranty runs out at the end of this month.

You could always use the Lexmark as a door stop,(they make excellent doorstops), and get yourself a Canon printer instead lol.
