Compulink Advantage 8.0 won’t print?

Q: Compulink Advantage 8.0 won’t print?

I have installed a new setup of this program on an existing network and I cant get it to print. The setup is pretty simple, I just install the software n Windows XP and share it. I create shortcuts to the actual program, help files, and mail that came with the software. I then set the Environment variable to the letter A. Next I go to the client computers map the drive, set the Environment variable B through E for the other five licenses, and copy the shortcuts to that computer. Once that is done the software opens and works fine, except I cant get it to print. When I open a file and try to print it, it acts like it is sending it to the printer but it never comes out.

If anyone has any ideas of what I might try or what I have missed please let me know. The trainers for this software will be coming in soon and I need this problem resolved before they get here.

Thanks for the help

Why won?t my printer print with Windows 8?
Have you just upgraded, or purchased a new computer with Windows 8, and now you can?t get your printer to work?  If so, this may help you.  A lot of people have questions about installing their printer on a new OS.  This will help you answer those questions and make sure that you get everything installed. 
 
Before You Start
Before you try to install the printer on a Windows 8 computer, you should check to make sure the printer is compatible with the new OS.  The link below will give you a list of the printers that will work in Windows 8.
 
http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03168175
 
If you have upgraded your computer to Windows 8 form another version of Windows, make sure to completely uninstall all of the software for your printer.  It should still print, but to use all the functions you will need to reinstall the software, if it?s available.
 
Another thing to consider is how you want to connect the printer to the computer. 

USB.  You should make sure that you have a USB cable that is no longer than 6 ft. (roughly 2m).  Make sure to connect the printer directly to the computer.  Do not use a USB hub. 
Ethernet cable.  Make sure you have the network setup, that you have a free cable port on the router, and that you have an Ethernet cable available.
Wireless.  You should make sure that you have the wireless network setup, and that you ha... Read more

Whenever I print to the shared printer on my Windows 7 desktop, the print job will just sit in the print queue. If I stop and then start the print spooler, the job will print. It happens from an XP laptop. Print jobs sent from the local Windows 7 computer print just fine.
How can i solve this one ? :(

This issue with some particular laptop running windows Xp and windows 7 Home

A:Whenever I print to the shared printer he print job will just sit in the print queue

So, the Windows 7 Desktop has the printer physically attached to it and it's shared?
And the XP laptop is sharing the printer through the network? If I understand you correctly?
If so, on the XP Laptop, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Are there any devices with yellow flags? Or Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? Or any listings for the printer? If so, right click it and Uninstall it. Now go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs uninstall any drivers or software for the printer. Now,go to Printers and Faxes, and if the printer icons is there, Right click the shared printer icon and Delete it. And Restart the computer. Now when the computer comes back up, go to the printer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in the model# for the printer and download the driver for the printer for XP and install it. Now, go to Start/Run and type the computer name of the Windows 7 machine (ex) \\ComputerName and press enter. A window should open up with the shared drives on the 7 computer, with the shared printer. Right click the shared printer and choose Connect. This will add the printer to Printers and Faxes again. Right click this printer/Properties and print a Test Page.

Hello,

Yesterday I ran into some issues with my computer hardware - in the middle of a LoL game my computer randomly powered off instantly with no warning or anything and would not turn back on. After hours of attempts I realised when I removed the graphics card (Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 1x6pin connector) from my system it would power up on the integrated graphics, the motherboard green light (ASUS Z87-K) is always working also. I thought because the computer wouldn?t power up at all that there was a fault with the power supply (Cooler Master 500W) so I purchased another one (Corsair VS550W) and tried that. Still no power up with the graphics card connected, at first it would work without the graphics card also but after some tampering, replugging and cable managing now is not turning on at all, even WITHOUT my GPU attached with this brand new PSU. I?ve had the PC for just over a year and was advised maybe my old psu had just died but that appears not to be the case. I?ve also tried removing non essential components and booting but still nothing. Maybe there was something I could do in the bios and alter the settings? I did used to run the multi display bios setting which would allow me to use the integrated graphics witn one monitor and the gpu graphics with my main monitor just because I didn?t have two VGA ports (I use VGA because I have two old tv?s instead of dual monitors)

A:PC won’t boot at all

First of all, the vs series from corsair is the lowest quality unit corsair sells. It is NOT designed nor intended for use with a real video card. Even corsair says as such
The Corsair VS550 is a great choice if you?re building a home or office system with lower power demandsClick to expand...

Installing that pw supply did nothing for troubleshooting.

Here is what I would do;
1 First and foremost, get hold of a pw supply that is actually designed for gaming or other stressful endeavor
2 Install the quality pw supply
3 Now test with and without your video card. It may be that your video card failed however no one can tell you until you use parts that are designed for what you are doing with the system

The other day I was just surfing the web when all of a sudden my PC turned off without warning (the system had been on for some hours).
Thinking not much of it, I turned it back on again, continued using it and it has been running fine for the last few days, including running some intense programs, (rendering, etc).

Yesterday it happened again (whilst surfing), and now it wont turn back on.
Now Im not saying it definitely isnt the psu, although the psu is practically brand new (see my last problem). However the LED on the motherboard and LEDs on my peripherals (card reader, wireless keyboard receiver, etc) are all on.

If I power off and on via the switch on the back of the psu, and then press the on button, the power LED on the case will flash once, but after that nothing.

Ive tried unplugging all the drives from the psu to see if it will boot, but it still will not.

I'm thinking that the MB may be dead.
Any ideas?

I?ve checked on the computer to see if there is any solution but there are none.I have gotten in touch with the supplier and they can?t seem to help either.

Try turning off antivirus temporarily, then try to format a floppy (I can't test this since none of our machines have a floppy drive installed)

FAT is the normal file system for floppies and in most cases no other option will be available, unless you've installed a third-party utility which allows the NTFS file system to be used for formatting floppies.

Hi Koldys,Thanks for posting.Apologies that your computer is not working as expected.Have you tried taking the battery out and using the adapter plugged in?  If it works, then it would indicate the battery has failed.  If it still does not work, then the charging/power circuit is probably at fault.  If that's the case, the motherboard would have to be replaced.

This morning, when i turned on my pc, everything was fine. Booted up as usual. Then later, when i had to shut it down, i accidently pressed the sleep mode button. PC did enter sleep mode and the power LED was blinking as it should. but i couldnt get it out of sleep.
So i was forced to do a hard shutdown.

I removed the power cable from the PSU, plugged it back in later. Started up PC and wow... the power light in the front panel didnt work. PC started tho... All fans working and after like 5 seconds the PC shut itself off and then started up again. Monitor got NO signal. PC sounded fine. No beeps or anything. Hard drive didnt start making the sound that its reading or looking for anything. I was forced to do another hard shutdown (hold the power button for 5sec) . I tried taking out RAM sticks. My keyboard is not getting any power. CD/DVD drive seems to be working. All cables and components are plugged in correctly. Most of the components are pretty new.

Microsoft has stepped up its effort to promote its Vista operating system, but Windows XP just isn?t going away. The company reportedly extended the OEM downgrade timeline once again: As of now, system builders can still offer Windows XP downgrades to their customers and will be able to do so until Vista?s second birthday.Click to expand...

News source

Perhaps Win7 should be based on WinXP instead of adding more bloat to Vista? I think Microsoft should get a clue. They should give customers what they want and not what Microsoft wants them to have.

Yesterday, I was contacted by phone by a ?Microsoft? certified network engineer working with Microsoft for Avangate Services, LLC (I HAVE NAMES, PHONE NUMBERS, AND ADDERESSES) stating they had evidence that Chinese hackers were in the process of attacking my laptop to obtain access to my banking data. They showed that over half of Microsoft ?services? >MSCONFIG>Services> were stopped and then that the hackers already had my bank ID and password. When I tried to access my account the hackers were busy removing funds from checking ($1600) and savings ($600). I was bounced out of my online account and could not get back in at the time.

According to these people my only solution was to install ?NSA Sonic Wall? with accompanying software on my network (cost $1499.00, check only) and for them to fix the damage to my PC. Any advice? I have not mailed the check!

Everything is located in the same room most of the time (except phones and tablets). The router is located in a back office. I am investigating the possibility of relocating the router to the room with all of the equipment so that I can hardwire the TV, Sat., and Audio Receiver... but it is most likely going to be cost prohibitive. Just curious if there would be any advantage to hard wiring any of these into a secondary wireless router that is connected to the first one wirelessly. Would this just be a collosal waist of time?

Hi, This morning I turned my laptop on and it was installing some updates. From the corner of my eye - I saw the screen turning black and the laptop shutting off. I immediately tried turning it back on, but it stayed dead.  When I try and turn it on, the power light and battery light turn on for a few seconds, but then turn off again.  It?s fully charged and I also tried the Recovery button. However, that gives the same result as just turning the laptop on.  Please help! Thanks in advance.

Hi,
i played Motocrass Madness 2 a lot in the past and now i wanted to re-install it. Everything worked fine until i wanted to start the game. I get the Microsoft screen, the title screen and after that the game always stops. I tried several settings on my graphics-card (geforce mx 440, 64 mb) but it all didnt help. Here are the stats of my pc: Gigabyte 7-DXR Motherboard, AMD XP 1800+, 786 mb RAM, Geforce MX 440 64 mb.
The game was running on the same system real smooth but now it wont even start. (Yes, i have installed the newest detonator driver).
Please help, i love that game.
Thanks,
Jan

Oh, i forgot, i got Win XP professional running.

Long story short:
Last week while trying to load an online game (L4D2 through Steam ? just in case it?s important) my computer disconnected from the internet and now it won?t reconnect.

Can you please help as I am desperate to get it fixed before I start my final year of University in a couple of weeks?

I am running a windows 7 operating system. Using a Thomson ST585 router and my service provider is talk talk (Tiscali before they were taken over) and they can?t help me.

Using my Nokia 5800 to connect to the net wirelessly I have tried to follow various instructions on forums that I have found but none of it has worked for me (a fair assumption would be that I am doing something wrong rather than the advice was bad). As screen dumps because I couldn?t get the >C:results.txt command to work I have to hand details from:
IPCONFIG, PINGS, ROUTE PRINT and the TASKLIST
Just shout if you need any of it.

I have tried uninstalling the router and reinstalling it.

On the router webpage it states that the DNS server 1 is not connected. In the properties of the computers network settings I have tried typing in two other talk talk DNS serer IP addresses I found and that didn?t seem to work.

In the connection information it tells me that my IP address is 80.42.152.223 but in the properties IPv4 was 192.168.1.254. Is the former my mobile, which was connected to the wifi at the time?

If you can help, please feel free to treat me like a foreign tourist and speak slow... Read more

First off why won't your ISP help you is it their router or one you purchased?

What virus scans do you have on your computer?

Do you have a program called CCleaner? it might help. also if you have malwarebytes or spybot they might help remove as well.

Have you gone into program files to see if the game is truly removed?

Hello there,i just read another thread about a similar problem, but the solution which was given there - enabling Legacy boot mode - didnt help in my case, so im hoping for some input.Long story short, the HDD which came with the Notebook malfunctioned, we ordered a new one, replaced the old one with the new one and thought i just install my OS and fine - unfortunately it wasnt that easy.After boot i get the following error messageBootDevice Not FoundPlease install an operating system on your hard disk.Hard Disk - (3F0)  Bios Version of the Notebook: 1.6.1.0Both Hard Drive Checks you can choose from are not installed, so i couldnt do that.Sata Device Mode is "IDE", boot mode is "legacy"If i try and install windows with the packed dvd, it shows no device and asks me for some drivers - shouldnt a new hdd be recognisable without installing drivers?Maybe im just missing the big picture here.Thanks to anyone with some ideas.EDITIf i go to the startup menu and go to Boot Device Options via F9 i can only select-Nootebook Upgrade Bayand-Notebook EthernetMaybe an additional clue that something is wrong with the HDD?EDIT #2The assumed defect HDD works just fine in another desktop-pc (should have been the first thing i checked)Does that mean its the motherboard?

We recently changed out the keyboard and the ac jack. The battery is being recharged with the yellow light on! There is not any power whatsoever! It won’t even try to come on! Any suggestions, we thought about doing a CMOS reset! We have already done the whole, take the battery out and reset thing! Any help will be greatly appreciated. By the way, the last time we used this computer it worked, but that was like two years ago! It just had problems with the power jack. Maybe we did something taking it apart? My husband was very careful. We just don’t want to spend a ton getting it fixed. Also, how do you tell if the motherboard is bad? Thanks, Misty

Hi! I am trying to connect my Yoga 900 13-isk 80mk to a Samsung SA850 27 inch screen through the usb-c port on the computer, via a Kanex usb-c to display port adapter and a display port cable.The computer  finds the screen, it even says Samsung SA850 on the detected screen, but I cant extend the display to it, cone it or just use the external display.Windows 10 tries to connect to the Samsung display, it asks if I want to keep the settings, and the image just shows on the Yoga 900 like nothing has happend. I have tried a couple of cables, and it seems the usb-c to display port adapter is working, or Win 10 wouldnt find the Samsung display.I have tried rebooting, checking the drivers, disconnecting and connecting the cables and adapter several times..Anyone have any suggestions?
