    I am a volunteer with Habitat For HUmanity and I am having problems trying to fix our HFH printer problem. When I use any program (word, excel, etc) and try to print a document, the computer has a problem communicating with the printer. I have reinstalled the printer driver about 20 times but that does not help. We bought a new printer and it worked fine for about two months and now the computer is having the same communication problems.

    I know that both printers work fine on other computers.
    The computer is a Dell running MS XP. THe computer is about 9 months old and was purchased new. The first printer we were having problems with is a Lexmark X85 mulitfunction (printer, fax, and copier. The copier function works fine.) and was connected to the computer through USB. The second printer we tried to use was a Epson stylus 740 connected by parallel port.

    What can I do.????
