My printer keeps encountering error every time I print?
You must really expect that to happen since you are using a new version of Windows. Do not expect all programs to run smoothly on new versions of Operating Systems.
Windows 7 is only a new platform and other programs are still being improved to make it compatible with this version.
If you are having problems during printing sessions, why don’t you try uninstalling first the program of your printer then run a disk utility next to diagnose your drive for a file structure error.
Just use the Tools option found on the drive’s Properties. Or if you have a disk utility program, schedule a disk test for drive C. Then afterwards install the printer’s program again.
If the error is still there, check your printer:
Check if your printer is properly plugged in the AC outlet.
Check if it is turned ON.
Check the printer cable or the USB cable if it is attached to the computer properly.
Check the USB cable if it is really working. If you have another printer available, try the cable on that printer if it’s going to work.
