Solved: Reconnecting HP Laser Jet 4050T

Q: Solved: Reconnecting HP Laser Jet 4050T

I used to have my HP 4050T hooked up to my Dell Dimension 3000 printer, running Windows XP about 2 years ago. It has been hooked up to different Dell computer but I decided I wanted to use it with my computer again. So I know the printer has been working fine. There is no message about a print driver not being says its sending to the printer, but nothing prints. I had a HP 5000 hooked up and it worked fine. Using the same cable I had on it, just changed printers. Please help!

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.)

First of all, sorry for my bad english.
My pc was working perfectly for about a year now, but these days it started having problems.
In the past few weeks it started disconnecting from the internet with the message: you don't have a valid
ip configuration. (It was working on the other pc connected to the router with lan, and on the notebook connected through wifi)
A reboot of the pc/router did always solve my problem in these situations.
Yesterday, my internet connection started connecting/reconnecting, and I couldn't solve it in any way, not with
a restart, and not with that network repair tool (idk it's name, I have hungarian windows). When it stayed connected for more then 2 seconds I was even able to load google, youtube, other sites,
I tried some solutions, like disabling the energy saver settings, setting it to 10mb half duplex, etc, but nothing worked, my
internet kept connecting/reconnecting.
Today I started my pc and it works perfectly.. Any ideas on how to solve it? I have the newest lan driver.

My mobo is Asrock 960gm-vgs3 fx.

A:Network keeps reconnecting

It appears that you manually configured the IP for at least one system.
DON'T do that - - make sure all systems use DHCP

Can someone please recommend me a colour laser printer for home use? Resolution should be at least 1200 x 1200 dpi. The option to print both sides of the paper would be nice. Multiple paper trays not necessary, nor anything else that will add unnecessary bulk to its size. There should also be connection for Ethernet and USB. Preferable that it uses separate toner cartridges for the different colours, so if one colour runs out then only that colour needs changing rather than the whole lot.

You realize these are very expensive to both purchase and on a cost/page.

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.

Hi all mrs got a toshiba satelite and on wireless and even through ethernet we keep getting message when trying to connect to the internet saying re dialling or re connecting what could be the cause of this . is it something like wireless card faulty or network connections all gone wrong i dont want to fiddle with it till i get some advice please thanks all

A:Toshiba Satellite keeps saying reconnecting/dialling when I try to go online

Could be anything... model, age, setup, operating system... need for a re-installed or upgraded driver, hard drive failing, defective component... defective wireless modem... wireless device that is too close to a wall or other interference...
First, you might try downloading and re-installing the drivers... then try installing another hard drive, if you have one handy... That will be one way to test your current installation...

I wasn't able to connect through my wireless router to the internet on any of my wireless devices until I plugged in my wireless usb stick. I plugged it into one laptop, and now I can use both. Why would this happen? My mother has the same connectivity issue, and do you think I should try the same thing? 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?

Hi My system already had an Nvidia GT Gcard installed and running for about years now Yesterday i got a BOOTMGR error and had to repait that file using the Windows Disc This involved using the onboard video chip of my motherboard Manufacturer BIOSTAR Group - Model GF -M TE Upon resolving the BOOTMGR issue i was unable to resuse my graphics card I have tried reinstalling drivers motherboard drivers resetting CMOS etc The trouble is when i try disabling the onboard chip through device manager it still will not switch to the issue (not solved card Graphics threads) by other any Gcard There is also only an Graphics card issue (not solved by any other threads) option in BIOS to set the onboard chip to ON or Auto ON I do not have the driver CD for the graphics card and gave been using the Nvidia site for them Also what appears to be odd is that the computer does not detect the Gcard at all and only the onboard chip even if i uninstall the drivers for it and disable it Any help would be great nbsp

A:Graphics card issue (not solved by any other threads)

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.

What is it about inkjet photo paper that makes it unusable in laser printers?:suspiciou
(At least not recommended to)...

A:Inkjet vs laser

Inkjet photo paper is coated to assist with absorption, retention, and color balance of the inks projected to be used with it. Each different printer manufacturer has, (presumably), a different coating concoction, that produces optimum results with their brand of inks.

Part of this is marketing BS, as a color balance "profile" can be developed with aftermarket paper and inks. In the case of many paper manufacturers, a downloadable profile is available, in order to produce the correct color balance of their papers to any given commonly used photo quality printer.

This answer is specific to "inkjet photo paper". By that I mean paper used for the printing of photos of exhibition quality.

To this I might ask the question, "why would anyone want to put a true photo quality photo quality paper in a laser printer in the first place"? It does seen like a massive waste of money and good materials.

Hello all,
please forgive me if I sound like a noob. I'm thinking of buying a laser printer and I see all these types of color cartridges. Colors such as Cyan, Magenta, Black, Yellow etc... Do all of these go inside the printer individually? The printer is this model: Click here

A:Laser printer cartridge capacity help

Yes, there will be four cartridges... Black, Yellow, Cyan, and Magenta... the printer sorts them all out, but they are darned expensive at replacement time... as much as $130 each... or more, depending on the brand of computer.
HP laser printers will not work with off brands of ink. The new ones will not run unless they have the expensive HP cartridges.

But the ink does last a long time... you can find sources online that will tell you how much... The HP 3600 and similar use way too much ink... compared with Konica Minolta, Samsung, etc.

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.

The HL-1450 draws about 350 Watts when it prints, and that is a decent power draw (lights dim). Most of the new brothers want double that (including the currently on-sale HL-5240).

I am not married to Brother here ... can someone recommend a decent B&W laser printer which does not draw 600-1000W to print?

Hi there,
Can anyone help me? I'm quite desperate here.
I'm having problem with my keyboard/USB.
When I press any key on the keyboard, that instant all USB devices are disconnected. And soon after I unpress it, the system will detect all USB devices like they were just plugged in. I say all USB devices, cause it doesn't matter USB mouse or USB drive, they all get disconnected.
It's frustrating me cause I can't use a USB mouse.
Please help

I'm using a Lenovo 3000 N100 0689GRA.

A:Solved: Pressing key disconnects USB Lenovo 3000 N100 0689GRA

How many USB ports does that have? and what are connecting them. If you could also please look in your event viewer (Start>control panel>administrative tools>eventviewer, and check the "SYSTEM" area. double click any item in that list for a detailed description. You should see some errors.

So i bought my new 2 sea gate drives,and as before like i said the previous hds was randomly getting dced etc,now when i bought the new drives worked great then started to do the same thing as the previous drives,not being picked up in bios etc,then i decided to change the plug in my ultra x3 800 watt psu to a molex to sata connection,that worked picking up the hds no problem,

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

A:SATA problem solved but a bit concerned

Ok yes it does seem like a faulty Power Supply

Also you should have just replied to your original thread:
Instead of making this new one.

But oh well !

Anyway, if the molex do not cause any issue, then you could continue with them
I wish you had tried that before. I didn't suggest it, because it is uncommon (very uncommon), especially with two !

Hi, can someone give me some advice? I have an LG Flatron L1910BA monitor a few years old. worked perfectly fine. connected it to my ancient Toshiba Satellite and enjoyed the big screen display. worked fine. then when i reconnect it back to the original CPU (Korean TG Dreamsys) the display is completey horrid. all the text is absolutley tiny (maybe 2 point font - or less!), the icons are distorted in size but semi-coherent. What can I do? when i go into windows xp safe mode the display is the same. i have the original monitor drivers but i can't read the control panel as the windows that pop up are about 1" x 1" in size. It's really insane. and I don't know what to do or even where to begin. Thanks for any help that you give!

I have an XP Laptop that is used to record video for our high school football team. When we are donw using the video on the laptop we store it on a TerraStation 2TB server in the office. It is always on and connected to a hub that the laptop is hooked to when on.

My problem is this.... when the laptop is turned on, the network drive I set up shows "disconnected", and consequently, the application for transferring the video to the server doesn't show the network drive to select... after I click on the network drive in "my computer", the application will then see the network drive.

My question is how to make this automatically connect when the computer boots. I set it up to "reconnect at logon", but it does not without me opening the drive 1st...

Thanks for your help in advance!

Me, too; I have XP Pro SP2 with automatic updates on 5 systems, and just this one fails: after most reboots, if I launch an application that was last working on a file in the mapped network drive, it comes up "unavailable" or "file not found" unless I visit Windows Explorer first.

I even tried putting batch files with shortcuts "n:\dummy.txt" and "m:\dummy.txt" in my Startup group, to force references to my M: and N: drives, and that isn't even enough!

No domains, just workgroup peer networking here. Like I say, works on all my other systems, has for years, just my latest Gateway Profile 6 acts different.

(I hope you have access to a computer with a CD burner.)

I've found this tool very helpful at identifying bad memory. It's positively identified bad ram 100% of the time for me. Download this and follow the instructions to burn it to a blank CD-R. Then boot from the CD-R on your suspect computer. Run the Extended Diagnostics for at least one complete cycle. (Usually if it doesn't detect RAM pattern errors on the first cycle then the RAM is good and there isn't much need to run additional cycles.)

I just bought a Microsoft laser mouse 6000 from Newegg (specs here). I'm trying to get the back and forward buttons working in Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty). I did some modifications to configuration files as suggested by Google search results. Unfortunately, that screwed it up so that the scroll wheel controls back and forward, and the real back and forward buttons don't work at all.

The imwheelrc config file (/etc/X11/imwheel/imwheelrc) says that the xf86config file needs to allow for enough mouse buttons. But locating xf86config in the terminal returns nothing.

What can I do??

My son was recently given a three year old laotop computer. It was originally connected to a DSL connection and I use a Cable connection. It has a built in wireless 802.11g card and a 10/100 interface. I configured it to connect wirelessly to my wireless router. The connection is established and DHCP assigns it a network address. Every 20-30 seconds it drops the connection and imediately reacqires a new connection. I disabled the wireless card and enabled the 10/100 LAN connection. Same thing. The router makes the connection, asigns a valid IP address, drops it, and imediately reastablishes the connection. The TCP/IP stack looks good. The link speed is right. Could it be conflict with some pre existing software? Maybe the old DSL software ot some instant messaging program. I loaded new antivirus software and ran a complete sucessful scan. Any thoughts what it could be?

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.

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.

Laser Toner Running Low?

HP and Lexmark will hate me for telling you this. You can often get your laser printer back to printing BLACK again if you tap the cartridge from end to end with a heavy pen or small ruler.

Tapping frees a lot of toner stuck to the inside of the cartridge and so allows your printer to print many more good copies before exchanging for a new one.

Low overhead and living frugally keeps money in your wallet longer. Now where the heck can I get a good electric jeep. TG

I have an Acrox (model MOP) laser mouse and no matter WHAT I set my mouse options to (right now at slowest possible double click setting) whenever I click the left button, I will almost always end up getting a double click. I will excute files when trying to move them, open pictures when trying to delete, get the picture. I checked their website......but I can't figure out how to actually INSTALL the drivers. I've done tons of drivers, but these ones get me. Anybody have any is REALLY aggravating trying to save when the dropdown menu is opened and closed with one click of the mouse.....takes like 4 tries before the menu will open properly and let me choose a location. AAARRRGHH !!

A:Constantly getting a double click with Acrox laser mouse

Well, regardless of the speed of the double click, if the button is set to double click it will always double click.

Anyway, go to this Acrox site (Click here), download the driver zip file. When you unzip this file, you'll find more zipped files. Select the one for your model and unzip it. Double click on the setup.exe file or open it from Start > Run. It should install then.

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

The processor doesn't seem to get along with the plug-in, and, especially after logging onto Facebook, Windows would not shut down. The plug-ins were the reason. Once I disabled them, shut down, and start up again; no problems...until the next time I use them.

Adobe hasn't resolved this issue with the AMD processor yet, but at least I can get my Windows to shut down by disabling the Shockwave plug-in through Mozilla Firefox.

After looking online for too long, I found Microsoft saying "Try to see (by trial and error) which update is causing it." ?? Not an answer. I was hoping for "Oh, uninstall this update." Neither was System Restore a good option. Finally found what worked after seeing ALL (on-screen keyboard, magnifier, narrator) had the same error. Finally found what worked, was shutting off User Access Control. That worked for me since I'm not a newbie, but may not work for others that are.

Spent about 6 hours today trying to figure out why my zune software stopped working on start up. With constant errors I had to think back what I changed.

Changing some hardware can pose a drm issue with zune. In my case I turned hyperthreading off during some overclock testing and this fooled zune into thinking I had a different cpu.

Just wanted to log the issue here just in case anyone ever had a similar issue.

Thier system powers up with no beeps, no keyboard, no post no usb or no video

The new power packs 350w 450w 500w coming from China have a tiny slide switch Red or Black on the face plate below the power cord.
It is set to 230V by default , which creates the above problems
By swtiching it to 115V everything should boot normal

About a month ago, I started getting regular BSODs. It seems like I tried every quick-fix that I know. I ran Microsoft security essentials and Malwarebytes. I ran windows update. Manually updated most of my drivers. Removed the video card. Finally, I replaced the RAM.

At this point, I tried looking at the dump files and quickly realized that I am past my abilities. I have attached the dmp files and I am wondering if someone could give me insight on what they mean.
Currently, I suspect my problem could be one of the following.
*bad driver that I failed to update
*virus that I didn't find
*hardware malfunction

One last thing, every time my computer has BSOD, I have been running google chrome. This could be a red-herring because I almost always have something open in chrome.

Hello all,
I am working on an HP computer that was once used in a school setting.
My friend purchased this computer at a school auction and was hoping to install her old WindowsXP HDD into this machine. However, when the computer boots with her hard drive all seems to be working until I am presented with a screen which requires a series of nine boxes requiring six digits each (this number sequence is supplied by Microsoft).

Upon entering the digits, it instructs me to call Microsoft or attempt an online fix. Calling Microsoft only yields the response: ?I am sorry but we do not support WindowsXP anymore. We suggest you upgrade to Windows8?). This computer belongs to an 85 year old individual that is fairly confident with WindowsXP and will not be using this computer for online activity.

Just wondering if there was any solution to the hard drive transplant dilemma.

A:[SOLVED] Windows XP Hard Drive Transplant

The nine boxes are the product key for the version of XP that is installed. You will need the product key that is on a sticker on the computer the HDD came from to Activate it.
If you are typing in this product key from that computer and it is not activating, then you will need to reinstall Windows XP from a CD. You can get retail CD version of XP from Ebay. Or try Windows 7.

A new problem where I cannot log in to my computer. When I boot it asks for username and password. I never set it up like this. Anyways, I put Administrator for username and leave password blank because I never set one. It starts logging in, says logging in, then says logging out, and I'm back to it asking for login info.

I tried connecting to the registry remotely, but it cannot find my computer and I can't change any network settings or any other settings because I can't get it to fully load windows, but only to the login screen. Even safe mode acts the same. What can I do?

A:[SOLVED] Auto logout right away after boot and login

Do you have another user login?
If you have been using the Admin login as you main login, and that has become corrupted, then you cannot login to your computer. You should always use a different user profile to login in case it becomes corrupted.
You will need an XP Disc. Boot off of that and try a Repair Install.
This will not change any of your files or programs.

It sees the router but will not connect-instead endlessly trying to "Acquire network address."

I tried renewing the connection ipconfig, etc, etc. I am just lost.

I have spent days trying to fix this, downloading about 40 different programs and drivers from dell to no avail. I beg of you to help me end this madness.

Her computer is a dell Inspiron Mini 10 running XP SP3.

Please let me know any information you need to know to help.

As a side note, her PC takes 5 minutes to show a taskbar in safe and regular mode. This also occurred after uninstalling bitdefender.

Thank you so much.

A:[SOLVED] Acquiring network address nightmare

Hi Ouchybird and Welcome to TSF.

This used to be a common Bitdefender problem.

In the Run Box, type cmd and hit the Enter key.

At the command prompt, type netsh winsock reset catalog and press Enter.

Restart your computer. This should resolve your internet issue.

Are PC is pretty old and today it shut off on my dad. I just turned it on and a black screen came up with a lot of text on it but couldn't really read it all. Just basic stuff I've seen before I guess.Managed to get to my desk top and was running ok for a few minuets plus didn't see anything else running in task manager so I don't think it's infected or anything. I think something's gone bad. What should I check out first? And if we just get a new pc what's a way I can get all my sketchup and pics? Am I going to just have to take it in? Would like to just fix it myself.

A:[SOLVED] Pc shutting off

A computer that shuts down on it's own is usually overheating. Or has a failing Power Supply Unit.
Shut down the computer and open the side up. Clean out all dust and blow out all fans with a can of compressed air. Start the computer and boot into Setup (Bios) go to PC Health and look at the temperatures. And check voltages.
You should always have a current backup of files you can't live without. Get yourself a USB HDD and drag and drop your personal files, sketchup and pics to the external HDD. Or burn them to DVD.

My Windows XP pro computer is logging me off, going into standby or locking EVEN though "Turn off hard disks", and "System Standby" are BOTH set to "Never"!!! it basically hides ALL my open windows, desktop icons, and the taskbar and the ONLY thing that is displayed is my wallaper, if I hit any key on my computer, it plays the "Windows logoff" sound and then returns to the lock screen where I must type my password again and then it plays the "Windows Logon" sound, NOT the "Start Windows" sound!!!.

the funny thing is that it DOESN'T play the Windows logoff sound UNTIL I hit a key on my computer, and it doesn't matter how long it has been sitting with just a wallpaper, same scenario EVERY TIME, same hit key and logoff sound SAME EVERYTHING!!! after re-logging-in, all my desktop icons and open windows are restored

When logged in, right click a blank space on the Wallpaper desktop and choose Properties, go to the Screen Saver tab Uncheck On Resume Password Protect.
Click the Power button go to the Hybernate tab uncheck Enable Hibernation.

A:[SOLVED] USB Hub Power Exceeded

The problem is in the error message. "USB Hub Power Exceeded". USB ports supply power but in some situations this is insufficient for normal operation. Try a powered hub.

Hello, I'm having a problem viewing members avatars on Firefox on one forum only.
It started yesterday for no apparent reason. I can see photos in posts but, not members avatars at least not most of them, two or three are visible.
Dumped my cache and history with no affect.
If I load IE I see all the avatars no problem, If I use my laptop no problem.
So I figure there's something wrong with the Firefox on my desktop but, haven't a clue how to fix it without deleted it and reloading. If anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it.

A:[SOLVED] Unsure where to put this or if any can help

Do you see the avatars if you use IE?

Hi guys
Just wondering is XP OS as secure with these new PosReady update, as it was before April 014 or the finishing Microsoft support of XP OS ,because I do most of my internet stuff at my local library which has far superior internet speed to my home computer internet set up, I was wondering Can you get these XP OS PosReady update on somebody else computer with another Ip address, and if you can where do you go to get the right security updates for your home computer also how do you back up service pack 3 including all security updates
Thanks guys for any info received !

A:[SOLVED] PosReady updates

With the XP POS update hack, you can continue to get updates for Windows XP. Since these updates are available only through Windows Update, you cannot download onto a different computer to install to your XP machine.
Windows XP is just as secure as it was before April, and will continue to be as secure as it was back then with the POS updates. In other words, not as secure as later versions of Windows, it will be vulnerable to new attacks, however, people who write viruses will be targeting newer version of Windows and probably not XP.
You do not need to backup Windows XP SP3, if you need to re-download it, get it here Download Windows XP Service Pack 3 Network Installation Package for IT Professionals and Developers from Official Microsoft Download Center it is still available and will be for quite some time.
If your Windows XP is updated and running well, you can make a Clone of it to a different HDD. If disaster strikes, or your C: drive fails, you can restore the Clone and be back in business.
