    Try turning off your printer,wait 10sec.,and restart it.
    Sometimes that helps removing cancelled prints out of the queue.

    If that doesn't do it,a simple reboot of your computer should solve the problem.

    mine does that too but not after restarting.

    usually the best way to cancel is to click cancel then turn off the printer.


    try uninstalling the driver though.

    What do you mean with that?

    You did get a disk with the printer,right?
    All you have to do is run that disk when installing your printer so that the driver gets installed as well.

    If you have the disk,run it again and see if that helps solving your problem.

    noo, im installing an old but reliable okidata ol600e.

    the website said their is no driver because xp already has it installed.

    i got it to print stuff earlier but an unfinished print by the now disconnected lexmark printer wont cancel.

    i cant uninstall its drivers without stopping the print que and i cant stop the que cause it wont let me.
