Windows 7: Please name Printer compatible with W 7 Ultimate

Please name Printer compatible with W 7 Ultimate

Hello Everyone,

I have moved from W 7 Home Premium to W 7 Ultimate.
I have had an HP desktop 2050 for about 3 years without problem.
I can no longer print a job with page borders.
I have literally tried EVERY combination of borders available in MS Word 2010 and also using Open Office.
Each time I have the message that the "page borders are outside the printable area."
I have downloaded the most recent drivers and still can not print without this message. If I decide to print, then a portion of the border is compromised.
As a 'last ditch' effort I post this question here, in the hope that someone has knowledge of this problem, before I consign the printer to a dark and forgotten place and purchase a printer that is compatible with Ultimate and - probably - from a different maker.

Regards

ColinX

Hi Colin,

This isn't an Ultimate problem, or even a Windows 7 problem, but rather you need to look at the page layout/paper sizes/border sizes in Word itself.

Your printer is definately supported under all versions of Windows 7 - note that there is no such thing as "Ultimate compatibility".

Regards,
Golden

The version of Windows does not differentiate with printers. Thus the problem is not the OS but somewhere else, either the Printer drivers, a configuration in the printer setup or within Word.

Golden, beat me to the post but we both basically said the same thing.

What Golden and Fireberd said.

Have you downloaded and installed the driver/utility package from HP? You'd probably need that to use all of the features of the printer.

Hello Everyone, especially GOLDEN; FIREBERD and BOBKN,

Once again, thank you all for trying to assist me.

My original post was to find a way to be able to print borders with W7. Ultimate and an HP 2050 deskjet printer.
I enter the following information which may be of assistance to anyone who has the same problem.

On the PAGE LAYOUT page, click on PAGE BORDERS under the PAGE BACKGROUND Group.
On the PAGE BORDER tab click on OPTIONS.
In the little box with MEASURE FROM click the down-pointing arrow and click on TEXT.
Set the the default points in the margin area to 10 points.
Click OK, on both pages.

With this adjustment, I have been able to print borders!

(PS: I do not know how to set this as a DEFAULT - but I'm happy knowing that I can adjust the page to print borders now!!)

Regards

ColinX
