I have checked the connections and they appear to hooked up correctly since I haven't changed anything recently.
The second problem happens with my printer when I am printing . It doesn't seem to matter if I am printing a document from a word processing program or if I am printing something from Explorer. I can print a document fine, but then when I try to continue using Explor and click on the back button, click on a new link or type in a new web site, Explore stops working and it won'tlet me go back to letting me continue to surf. If I have printed a word processing document and try to get into Explorer after that, nothing happens. I have to reboot my sysem after I print anything to be able to get back into my internet connection.
I did have some viruses and had them recently cleaned from my system. The sound problem is new but the printer problem has been going on for a while and now that my sound isn't working, I think I may still have Gremlins hiding somewhere....
I have a hpdeskjet 940c.
I don't seem to have any of the original disks to reinstall anything that way.
Be gentle! I have the least amount of experience with hardware componemnts and I am just not sure how to even get statrted. any assistance you could provide wouild be greatly appreciated!
