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.

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!

I have a Belkin N750 connected to my CISCO modem. Currently have 3 tablets, 2 laptops, 2 phones, 1 TV, 1 Audio Receiver, and 1 Satellite DVR connected wirelessly. 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?

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.

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

Help! We have a 2 month old P51 and it shut off while on charger power and now won?t turn back on. It is still plugged into the charger but  none of the indicator lights are lit. i have checked all the connections and switched power outlets.Thoughts as to whether this could be an issue with the charger or the computer itself? Thanks in advance. 

A:P51 won’t power on

First thing is when you plug in the charger, does the little THinkPad red led flash 3 times on the top ? If not, then the power block is not being recogized. Remove the power cable and the battery, press and hold the power button on the ThinkPad for 10 seconds. Then, before putting the battery back in, keep the lid closed. Plug in the power cable. Does the red led on the "i" of ThinkPad blink 3 times? If not, one of two things could be dead:  Either the powerpack (more common) or something inside the ThinkPad. I would strongly suggest that you find yourself another powerpack and see what happens...

I have a 360 but I am keeping my xbox but I want to have a better image quality, is there any good advantage to a S-Video cable for my xbox over composite, maybe a side by side image, thanks.
 

A:What is the advantage to S-Video

Without pictures to push my point, just keep in mind that composite is the worst of all connection standards. S-Video, Component (YUV) & HMDI (if available) are far better with only Component & HDMI allowing you to use Progressive Scan/High Definition.

The image is much sharper & colors are much more vivid when you use something other than composite.

I am currently running a windows 8.1 PC and have been using a 256G Samsung SSD as boot drive.

I am contemplating buying a new PC and some come with only regular Hard drives, some with full SSD and some with SSD cache.

I am going to remove my current SSD and put it in the new system so I am assuming it would be a waste of money to buy a system that had a full SSD pre-installed. Is this correct? Is there an advantage of having 2 SSD's in one box?

But what about systems that have a cache 32G SSD. Would this be of any use to me if I keep my main boot drive on the full SSD? Or should I just save my money and get a regular (non-SSD) system and move my own SSD over.

A:Two Router Advantage?

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router

What exactly does it mean when a motherboard says its SLI, and what are the advantages of using an SLI board, as compared to a non-SLI one?
 

A:Whats the advantage of SLI?

SLI means you can connect TWO sli approved nvidia graphics cards together for a performance boost. It is really only necessary if you are a hard core gamer. For the average user, one graphics card is more than enough power.

Some would argue that an SLI motherboard also opens up your future upgrade options, as instead of buying a new graphics card when the current one feels dated, you can purchase a second identical card for an upgrade. I however don't agree with this line of thinking. Unless you are a hardcore gamer who is addicted to super-high framerates, a non SLI board will due just fine.

I made a partition and loaded x86 (32 bit) and a x64 (64 bit). While I do understand that most software is not yet optimized for x64, I do not see any performance difference at all between the two.

Is there some "secret switch" I'm missing, or what is all this x64 hype about? What am I not seeing here?

A:I don't see the advantage of running x64

There should be little/no difference in application performance between 32 and 64 bit in 32 bit apps. Native 64 bit apps should run faster than their 32 bit bretheren. (...and I say "should" because of the vaguaries and skill involved in writing efficient code, and what the application happens to do. )

The primary advantage from and end user's point of view lies in the amount of resource 64 bit is able to utilize. i.e. if you want SLI/Crossfire and/or 4GB of memory or more, then you're basically forced to use a 64 bit version of the operating system.

Many want to do this assuming we could get 2x the bandwidth - - not so

Going to have to get a new Monitor soon, and was considering a LCD 15" (17" & up are generally out of my $$$ range), but hear they suffer from slow refresh rates where characters in high framerate games will "ghost", that is, leave a trail from point A to B on a screen, and that if the transistors(?) of the LCD burn out or fail black dots are left onscreen.
Been looking at Flatscreen 15" Monitors and have heard varying opinions of their picture quality & refresh rates vs that of the standard CRT-type monitor.

Would be used for use with Word & websurfing mostly, but intend to get into games and so I'm wondering which would be best for both purposes.
Another thing -- how tiring on the eyes are LCD's compared to FlatScreen's? Ones I've seen in stores & in use at homes seem to have a extremely bright screen which looks as if it'd be a bit ough on the user after a while.

A:LCD vs FlatScreen? What's the advantage of one over the other.

You can probably just reduce the brightness/contrast of the screen if it's too much. What you've heard about the ghosting effect of LCD screens in games is true, although the technology has improved a lot over the last couple of years, and screens with quicker response rates are coming out all the time. As for the transistors burning out, that should be covered under the warranty (get one with a 3 year warranty if you're worried about it).

Hi all,

I am far from a networking expert but I am wondering what would be the reason that my ISP is providing me 2 IP addresses, (Shaw Cable). Currently I am running only 1 PC and have just recieved a router/adapter for VoIP. I do plan on a second and third PC that I will put online as well as my Sony PS2. From what I understand, my router should handle all this from the one IP address. Is this correct? Is there a benefit to utilizing the second IP address? By having 2 IP's does this allow independant bandwidth? What I mean is, can I use one IP for my PC's and the other for my VoIP so that they do not steal bandwidth from each other?

Regards,
Mr

Microsoft has a beautiful thing in Aero, but it isn't using it to the magnitude that it could be. One suggestion, cut out the white backgrounds on windows such as the control panel and windows explorer, and replace them with a glass background. If more than one window is open, make the active windows glass more opaque. That way items on the top window wouldn't be confused with items in the window behind it. That would be gorgeous! The Same idea could be applied to the start menu. The right side of the start menu is that beautiful glass, but the left has that bland white background. Make it all glass!

What do you guys think?

Post your critiques and other ideas concerning the expansion of Aero Glass throughout the OS.

A:Take Advantage of Aero

Hmm, having the background of Word 2007 transparent would be very cool. However, having too much glass in the interface could make things a mess. Trying to read the blue text in control panel over a blue background might be trouble.

came across this statement:
"The most limiting factor here will be the Athlon's 133MHz DDR FSB which will only allow a maximum of 2.1GB/s of data to travel to/from the CPU. So in spite of the fact that the chipset will be able to get, in theory, up to 2.7GB/s of data from main memory it will only be able to hand 2.1GB/s off to the CPU.

AMD hasn't announced plans to move to a higher speed FSB anytime soon and while the added memory bandwidth would be useful on a point-to-point multiprocessor platform (each CPU gets its own 2.1GB/s bus to the chipset) VIA has already stated that they won't enter this market for the Athlon. "
from http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.html?i=1586&p=2

If I read this correctly then the via chip sets will not utilize the potential and cost of 333 memory. Is this right or are there other advantages to 333?
 

A:any advantage to 333 memory?

From the same article,

"The bottom line is that today, DDR333 doesn't result in any tangible performance improvements but if paired with a 166MHz DDR FSB the boost could be quite tangible"

One way to take advantage of the imagination to help the memory is "telescoping" the elements of your list within a story. The trick is to use your imagination
and create a pretty bizarre story  super brain to
force you to create new neural connections. You can use a shopping list, for example, with a little 'imagination you can turn it into a funny story nonsense. If you're trying to memorize a list of people, places or concepts you will find hard to see with the
method of the stories. One technique you can use to overcome this .

AGGHHHH!!!

I mindlessly installed Genuine Advantage, and well... I'm not exactly using a legit copy of XP. Although I do own a copy, I used this one with a false key. I'm sorry if I shouldn't be posting this here, but I do legitimately own XP.

Is there any concievable method of REMOVING Genuine Advantage?

A:Genuine Advantage

No TSF members will be able to help you on this one I'm afraid...if you have a genuine copy of XP, then you should use it :-)
