    Aw, this was an extremely good post. Spending some time and actual effort to make a
    great article… but what can I say… I hesitate a
    whole lot and never manage to get anything done.

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite
    justification appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they
    plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
    and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a
    signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    • Try to print through npoated.You should be able to print without any problems.If it does not print then reinstall the drivers again and go to device manager and check if the drivers are working or not.If it prints through npoated properly then the problem is with the software itself from which you are giving the command.For instance,if you are using MS Word,then check whether proper printer is selected or proper options are set.Try to reinstall thee software itselft.
