An HP mess
Posted on 2004-11-07
1.I'm on a 333 W98SE with an HP2200D. I just uninstalled program called System Suite. Afterwards printer stopped working. I was able to print from an old DOS 16-bit WP program, which controlled the hardware, but none of my windows programs would print. I got the usual error msg: Error writing to LPT1. Next I uninstalled the HP software and driver and reinstalled. After that even the DOS 16 bit program didn't work. Now on bootup I also get the messege -- too many parameters see HP help etc. (Nothing in there about too many parameters.) Clearly the it's not sending to printer port. Tried unintalling and reinstalling again. Tried the PCL6 Driver fromt he HP web site. Now I got mess. Any ideas?
2. If I really want to start over, don't I have to remove A)The software B) the drivers C) registry entries.
3) Also tried different settings for spooling, including printing directly, which froze computer up.
