Windows doesn't find printer
Posted on 2000-02-27
This is a slightly re-phrased question that I have asked before because I know more about the problem now. I re-installed Win 98 over an existing installation and now Windows doesn't find any printers. I can print from DOS. I didn't change anything with my cable or any other hardware. I just re-installed Windows and the problem started then. The default printer icon shows up in the Printers dialog box but when I try to print anything, or even open a word processor I get the error message that no default printer is selected. I've tried re-installing the driver and software many times. Windows just can't find any printers.
