Printer consistently prints nothing or only partial pages with Windows 7 64-bit
I have a four-month-old HP laptop with Windows 7, 64-bit and am currently on my THIRD new printer. When I send a print job to the printer, the printer lights up and prepares to print, then prints nothing at all or part of a page, and then gives me an
error message and cancels the job. This initially happened with a brand new HP printer, so I took it back and got a brand new Lexmark printer. When the same problem happened with the Lexmark, I took it back and now have a brand new Epson. All three printers
have had the same exact problem. With the past two, I tried everything - unplugging the printer, clearing the queue, uninstalling and reinstalling the software, making sure the programs were allowed on Windows firewall, temporarily disabling AVG etc. A recent
post I found said that changing the print settings from "Print Immediately" to "Print After Last Page is Spooled" (or something like that) helped, but I tried that and it did not help me. I've done a lot of googling and this seems to be a persistent problem
with Windows 7. I've certainly ascertained that it is not a problem with my printer. Please help. I'm a student who is very desperate to print and do not know what else to do . . .
