    Yesterday, I printed something, then an hour later I tried to print something else, and it would not print at all. I kept getting an error msg, that printer could not communicate with computer. I have tried to correct the problem, even changing printers. Nothing. So I finally booted to xp, printed what I needed to, then rebooted to 7. Still doesn't work. I am using an Lexmark X1200. Any ideas?

    Sounds like your printer driver has become corrupt.. They have a funny way of doing that. ;) I'd suggest reinstalling the printer driver.. Before you do though it might not hurt to check and see if there is a Windows 7 Specific driver available for your printer yet... If you do find a newer one then what you have installed now, remember to uninstall the old one before installing the new one to avoid any possible conflicts.... :)

    If you only have the option of using the same one again then you shouldn't have to uninstall it first, simply reinstalling it should do the trick.. :)
