Need to print from laptop!!!!
I have read several threads regarding this, but theyare WAY over my head.
From the very very beginning can someone explain how I get my laptop running
Vista to print to my desktop running XP. Do I need to install a driver in my
laptop?? I tried to go to hp.com and do that but they want me to plug in a
USB from my laptop to my printer, I don't want to use a USB to conect
them...what am I missing????
This is what I have done:
Added the printer to my laptop, adjusted the network/share settings on
desktop comp, changed my profile from public to private, made sure the
workgroup names are the same.....
and probably more. When I attempt to print, it just says "error" no cause
given.

HELP!!!!
