Posted: 11-27-2003, 11:24 AM
my computer can't detect my printer hp deskjet 840C even
though i'd plugged in and switched on. At the system
configuration utility, i chose normal startup option and
restarted my computer. but the problem persists. i
discovered that at the services option, print spooler has
stopped running although i had checked it. what can i do
now?? it's really frustrating cause i really need to use
the printer!! please help!
