I have a new toshiba satellite running vista and cant get the printer share to send  to my hp photosmart 1115. it says a test page has been sent to your printer and nothing happens. Please help. my printer is connected to my main desktop running windows xp and prints fine from there.

  • Hello grader0, have you enabled file and printer sharing on both computers?

  • Hello grader0,

    Have you check your printer setup? If you have checked that , then enabled  file and printer sharing

    on both computers and establish a  network connection on both  your computers.
