Recently, I found that I am unable to print text-only documents from Outlook Express, Word 2000, Wordpad, and Notepad. I can print webpages from Internet Explorer, and can print graphics from Adobe Photoshop, and also print files containg graphics from Word 2000. I am using Windows ME O/S, and printing from a Lexmark Z33 printer.
I have tried the following to no avail: 1) re-installed the most uptodate Lexmark printer driver. 2) disabled bi-directional communication. 3) tried to print using the generic printer drive. 4) tried to print in safe mode. 5) disabled print spooling. 6) done Word 2000 self-repair. 7) run defragmentation and a full scandisk.
Please could any one advise me, as to any other solution to this problem, or could it be a problem with the win.ins file?
I cannot run sfc /scannow in Windows ME. The system produces an error message stating that the wrong file name has been typed in the run dialog box. I have changed the data type to raw data, in the printer properties section. This does not solve the problem.
