    hey guys

    ive a HP Deskjet 670C printer, and every time i try to print something in windows XP, it shows this error

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This error can appear if you have not designated a default printer or the application is unable to locate an existing default printer to use. You might be able to correct this problem using one of the following suggestions:
    If a printer is not available in the Printers and Faxes window, add a printer (for Windows 2000, click Start, point to Settings, and then click Printers)
    If the application cannot find an existing printer that is already installed, select the printer in the Printers and Faxes window (for Windows 2000, select the printer in the Printers window) and set it as the default printer.
    If a default printer is installed but the application is unable to use it, uninstall the printer driver and then reinstall the latest version of the printer driver.
    If the printer is on a print server, you may need to validate the printer is available, the network is functioning, the server is not stalled, the printer is not out of paper, or the printer is not suspended by the administrator.
    Printing issues associated with a network printer are best handled by your local network administrator.
    To access the built-in Windows Help Printer Troubleshooting topic for Windows XP, click Start, click Help and Support, click Printing and Faxing, and then click Fixing a printing problem from the Printing and Faxing list. From the Fixing a printing problem topic, select Printing Troubleshooter.
    To access the built-in Windows Help Printer Troubleshooting topic for Windows 2000, click Start, click Help, click the Index tab, enter Print Troubleshoot in the Type in the keyword to find text box and press ENTER. From the resulting list, select Print from the left column.

    And have you installed and selected the printer as the default printer under Windows?

    Under Control Panel, Printers, if you right click the printer and select properties, print a test page, what happens?
