Printer Problems

By senftk ·
I have a wireless network (Linksys) with a desktop and a laptop both with XP. I installed a wireless al in one printer. It works fine. Problem is on th install on the desktop PC.. the wired printer disappeared. If I try to reinstall the printer i get an error "printer spool cannot be found). The wireless printer works, but want to install the attached printer as the default printer for the desktop.

First of all disconnect the printer, then uninstall the software via add/remove programs in the control panel. Secondly, reboot to safe-mode and remove it out of the device manager via the control panel. Then, reboot to normal-mode, connect the printer and follow the on-screen instructions
