HP672C & Windows 95
Posted on 1998-11-16
A friend just gave me an HP DeskJet 672C that I'm trying to use. It's about 1 - 1.5 years old, and he never had any trouble with it. I have Windows 95 installed on my machine. Everytime I restart my computer, I am no longer able to print. I get an error message that says my printer and computer are no longer communicating. When I troubleshoot - I find an error that says that file HPFMON08.dll is in use by another system. I've hit ctrl alt del, and had nothing running other than the basics (findfile, Osa, systray, etc.) When I try to delete HPFMON08.dll from the Windows system folder, I'm informed that Windows is using the file and I can't delete it. The only thing that works is to remove the printer and files relating to it from my desktop, restart my computer, and reinstall the printer. This isn't really a viable option, nor is leaving my computer on. Can anyone help?
