Prints off Web, but won't print "local"

    General discussion

  • Have a Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop, running Windows Vista connected via usb cable
    to a Dell 968W printer. It ran great for years and in the past week it quit
    printing from any "local" applications (Word,Excel,WinMail...) and shows
    "Communication Not Available" but will print "on-line" just fine from any web
    site with a "print" button/icon. I've run Mr Fixit, reloaded the print drivers
    and tried all the trouble shooting suggestions I can find. Any ideas?
