Hello, I posted this question earlier but may have used the wrong section -sorry.
My problems is - I recently got a new PC and attached my original printer to it. They are both HP. I cannot always get a printout.
I get the message -
Line 291
Char 1
Class factory cannot supply requested class.

What does this mean?
If I buy a new printer will it solve the problem please?
With thanks

Nanny

This sounds like a program error in the printer driver. I would download and install the latest driver from the HP internet site before I looked at replacing the printer.

Good Luck
