4. error

Actual Results:  
error message.  

Expected Results:  
printed???

New printer, loaded on september, is on network.  Main computer connected directly to the printer prints and prints web pages and emails.  But not laptop on network.  If I need to, I just copy info to Openoffice and print from there.

Do you get the error before or after the Windows printing dialog (that's the dialog you get when clicking on File->Print...)?

No error messages before the print dialog, only the "printing failed..."  Ok, it's weird, I haven't been able to print for the last 2 months, but when I printed to check what the error message was... it printed in both tbird and ffox.  I don't know.  It's working now and I didn't do anything to change it.  ???
