    Every time I restart my computer my printer prints a page with a single character.

    Also, my computer keeps accessing my A: drive - no errors, but it just keeps trying to read it every few minutes.

    Anyone have any suggestions - its driving me nuts!

    Not sure about the printer but for the a: drive prob, go to Start>Settings>Taskbar, choose the second tab (I think it's Start Menu) and then click the button to Clear your recently accessed documents. Does that resolve that problem? Let us know because there are a couple more reasons that might occur but I have a feeling that'll do it.

    Well, it seems to have worked on the A drive. Thanks for the help on this question and the other one I posted on the wrong thread.

    Keep me in mind if you think of anything with the printer.

    Its a HP DeskJet 952C.

    Thanks

    parallel

    I can use the USB, but I don't because I have a Microteck Scanner that runs through my printer and wont work when I change to USB.
