Fixing Error Code 0x000006b5

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have a Windows 7 home network with an HP. Deskject 5940 running on a Windows 7×32 computer. The printer is shared and resides on a Windows 7×64 laptop. However, after trying to add a shared network printer on the laptop, I buy error 0x000006b5. I guess I want the x64 driver and look at the computer. I see that the x64 driver is not installed. But do I get the x64 drivers on the x32 computer for the laptop to use the printer?

Go to Devices and Printers. Right-click the printer and select Printer Properties. Select the “Advanced” tab and click on “Additional Drivers”. Select the “x64” checkbox and click “OK”. Each time you determine the position of the driving force, an indicator is displayed. Then click OK to install the driving force.

If you receive an error when trying to add a shared printer on a computer, you need to share the printer properly. Before you can share one printer with two computers, both computers must be on the same network and the printer is shared to both computers.

If you have a Wi-Fi network at home, the easiest way to share the printer is to connect both computers to the Wi-Fi network. Before sharing the printer, make sure the printer is installed properly on the computer where it is directly connected to and you can use it without any problem. You can download the latest driver from the manufacturer’s website.

To share your scanner or printer properly across the network, on the computer where the printer or scanner is directly connected to, click “Start”, “Control Panel”, “Printers and Other Hardware” then “Printers and Faxes”. Here, right-click your printer or scanner then select “Sharing”.

In the printer or scanner’s “Properties” window, in “Sharing” tab, make sure “Share this printer” is selected then enter your device’s shared name in the “Share name” text field. For example, without quotes “Shared Printer” then click “OK”. After this, you need to add the shared printer or scanner to the rest of the computers on the network.

To do this, on every computer, click “Start”, “Control Panel”, “Printers and Other Hardware” then “Printers and Faxes”. Next, click “Add a printer” then click “Next”. In “Add Printer Wizard” dialog, select “A network printer, or a printer attached to another computer” then click “Next”. Windows will then search the network for possible shared devices and display the results on the screen.

Select the shared device you created earlier called “Shared Printer” then click “Next”. And that’s it. The shared printer or scanner should now appear on the computer. This should now allow you to use the network printer to print documents from any computer connected to the network.
