before anyone says anything, I know this is a mac dominated forum, but I use a windows PC as well, and a PC forum I am signed up to is upgrading & I cannot make posts there right now, so i will ask here to see if anybody can help me, as I see some users here do own windows boxes as well. I currently have an HP photosmart all in one printer scanner HP C6100. It is connected via USB 2.0 to a dell PC with windows XP home edition service pack 2 When ever I try to power it up, the light on it just blinks, & it just hangs, I once went into the computer system settings & it showed the printer as disconnected, so I unplugged & plugged it back in, & it worked. But I have had to do this plugging & unplugging a few times to get it working properly. another problem I am having is it will not print pages that I want or select from the internet or word documents. It will print only a top corner & the print is very large, it is like it cannot get the scale of the pages right. i have tried to set the scale in the printer preferences diologe to fit to page.
