printed text cropped off at R side of page

Q: printed text cropped off at R side of page

I use two printers at two locations w/different computers and have the same problem on both. Many (most?) web pages have info on left side of screen that I do not want to print (such as at this web site). When I print the page I get the left side panel and letters or words on the right are cut off which I need to fill in by hand. Some sites offer "printable view", but I don't recall having a problem with that. Probably not.
Is there a way to adjust the page so that all desired text is printed?

G'day everyone - I suspect this issue will be a tough one to get help with!

I've attached a screen-capture of a Microsoft Office Excel 2007 spreadsheet I'm working on at the moment. As you will be able to see on the screen-capture, I've marked the areas of interest and will explain here...

When I enter a name in this column (marked as '1'), I want the spreadsheet to check another column (marked as '2') to see if there is a match. If there is a match, I then want the spreadsheet to check the column marked as '3', and subtract that amount from the column marked as '4'. If there is no match between the column marked as '1' and the column marked as '2', I don't want anything to happen.

I hope that made sense, and if anyone can help me with a solution here, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi, I've started getting a strange 'pale' line or banding down the very left side of my printed photos. I first noticed it on a night shot (see link below) and then on the other one link below, a daytime one.

All the ink cartridges are full or almost full and I've done nozzle check and head cleaning. It doesn't show up on a greyscale B&W print I did (or at least not that I could notice).

It's on the leading edge, the part of the image being printed first when using the full size paper eg. A4, 10x15cm.

On a whim while writing this I just tried printing a 7"x5" image in the middle of a sheet of A4 and there was NO banding. Same result with a margin of 2cm rather than the default 0.5cm.
With the 0.5cm default margin, it's like whatever is going on only affects the next 0.5cm of the paper (the first 0.5cm of the printed image).

Is this a paper-feed thing then?
Any ideas how to solve it to avoid wasting lots of paper?
Other than this the printer, whilst old, is still very good

I suspect this might be a fairly common problem. Whenever I print there also seems to be a block of about 5 fine lines printed over the text for about ever new line of text. Now I recently bought a new (high capacity) cartridge which costs a fortune, so I'm not too keen to buy another if it is the printer (about 6 years old) which is the problem.

Has anyone else had the same sort of problem?

When I print I am getting a blank page between each printed page. Even if my document is one page it prints a blank page after it. I can also print a selected page, as in "print page 2" but it still prints a blank after it. The blank page does not show up on the preview.

I have a HP Deskjet D1300 and am running Vista Home using Word 2007. Is it a printer problem or a Word 2007 problem? Any suggestions?

I think you may have the printer set to print separator pages.

Look around in your printer properties (Control Panel>Printers>Printername>>Right Click>Properties) and disable.

Three days ago when I tried to print from the web and then WORD there was no installed printer. I checked and the printer was still installed but when printing a document the print screen said their was no printer installed. I checked and the print spooler was not working. So I downloaded the Microsoft tool MicrosoftFixit.Printing.Run.exe. I ran it and presto the printer worked but only once and when I went to print again, again the print box showed that there was no printer installed. So I have to run the tool every time I want to print a page then restart the computer. A royal pain and time waster.

Something is turning the spooler off and not allowing individual programs to see the installed printer and therefore reports that there is no installed printer.

2nd issue. this is a new laptop (ACER) and there is no LED light to show "Caps Lock". I did find a setting that flashes the screen and makes an audible beep. However, my wife has the exact same computer and hers has a 2" x 2" box appear each time she puts cap Lock on. Which is way less distracting than audible beeps and flashing screens. Is there a setting for this? I have not found one in the Microsoft website for Windows 7.

I have a HP C4850 configured to work through the wireless. I can ping the printer and access its internal web page. Network configuration prints out no fails or errors so as far as I can tell everything is configured correctly. If I send it a print job, a small notepad document with the text "test" in it, it won't print. Eventually it just seems to forget the print job is there.

I recently installed Outlook 2010 and I have got the following strange problem and I was wondering
whether anyone else had the same problem and found a solution.

Whenever I print an Outlook email, the pages come out in reverse order (page 2 then page 1) with a blank cover page which sometimes has "Microsoft Outlook - memo style OUTLOOK.EXE" printed
on the middle of it, and a blank sheet between each page of the message.

It only happens with Outlook. Printing is normal with Word, Excel, etc.

Any suggestions, please?

If this wont help, click Edit button in the same window, and make sure all the parameters make sense and are correct (page size, etc.)

I have an Access database used on daily basis to enter and print the maintenance work order in a report format. I have assigned a command button to print the required record. On clicking the button in the Form, a parameter query will run asking the user to put the record number to proceed. Once the correct record number is entered in the parameter text box, the report is previewed and the user click on the print button to print the same.

My question is as follows:

Is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now was already printed before? A kind of record keeping for the printed records.

Also, a message box should warn the user saying incase if the record was already printed, “The record was previously printed, do you want to continue printing again?”

Please tell me a way to perform the above in my Form.

With our dell 4400 series computer and Windows XP home edition operating system when we print out text from info on the internet the result is a page that clips off about 8 or 10 characters on the right margin of all lines of type. This does not occur if the material offers a printable option but they seldom do. We have altered the page setup offered when clicking on "File" at the top brow by moving the margins but even when shifting the text to the left the problem persists. Our printer is a HP 952C.

A:Missing print on right side of text.

It is a known problem. You did the usual "help (not fix)" by modifying your page margins.

The next thing you might try, if you haven't already, is to change the page printout orientation to landscape, instead of portrait, (horizontal instead of vertical).

Hello Everyone,
I have tried searching and searching for this problem but nothing seems to come up with this particularly odd problem. I'm actually running 3rd party software hosted on an AS/400 system but from a Windows 7 32-bit computer. If I right-click the title-bar of the window and select print, the print dialog box comes up asking for the printer I want to use. I select one, then click "Print" and the following comes out on the page....
<See Sample.jpg> (Of course, that's not an actual page, it's a representation of what you'd see on the page, but it's accurate despite the fact that it's color. Anyway, the print screens come out light and don't scan in well.)
As you can see, the print dialog box is clearly visible on the page. This seems to randomly crop up only on Windows 7 boxes and once it starts, we seem to have no way to stop it.

Hey guys,

I have a client at my workplace who has some problems in Internet Explorer 7 on a Windows XP desktop system.

You see, every time my client wanted to print out something, he/she usually goes into print preview. From there, there is a blank page on the first page, but there is some text on the second (and subsequent) pages. He/she is trying to print from a pop-up window with the menu bars and buttons in place.

I have to experiment and play around with the zoom buttons and even change it from portrait and landscape. My client is trying to print some reports and statistics for the VOIP lines on the administration page. How do I fix the particular issue?

My best guess is to upgrade the entire IE web browser to 8 (or maybe 9). Any other suggestions?

I have an HP LaserJet 1020 attached to a WinXP Pro workstation via USB. I have an Intel iMac networked with the PC wirelessly. I can detect the LaserJet on the iMac just fine, and on the iMac, documents spool and even say they have printed (they show up in the "completed" section of the printer control panel).

So, the iMac thinks the document printed, but it never did. When I look at the print queue on the Windows machine, I see "Remote Downlevel Document" in it. I assume that the iMac is printing to a port instead of starting the Windows Print Spooler, and this is why it is showing up with this name.

When viewing the LaserJet's queue on WinXP, the downlevel document is "Printing," and "113k/113k" has been transferred. But the document never prints - if I try to "cancel" the document in the Windows print queue, it says "deleting" for a verrrrry long time. Documents can be printed just fine locally on the Windows workstation.

Thanks in advance!

Hello there everybody.

Today happened something very strange and annoying in my PC.

I turned on my PC and started using Facebook normally, it was a bit slower than usual and then suddenly, it didn't load anymore. I tried more than once, but then it started loading only text on the left side of the page and I couldn't use it practically. This happened also with Yahoo, but I didn't see it happening with some other websites, they work totally normally.

I stress I have tried clearing the whole cache and history of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, system restore, check of sfc.exe, creation of new user account, running of an Ubuntu LIVE CD, uninstallation of all browsers and installation of the latest versions once again, changing of the MTU to 1500, turning off my router and antenna but unfortunately nothing has worked till now.

What wonders me is that Facebook works normally on my laptop which uses wireless connection provided by the same router and antenna.

It is really annoying me and it would be very nice if someone could suggest me something else from the things I mentioned before :(

Can't move the cursor off the active screen to the top, right or bottom. But when I move the cursor to the left side, it goes forever.

I often do a split screen e.g. to look at two panels concurrently, you can go to the option between minimize & maximize (does this mode have a name???), move the panel to the right and you get a half-screen on the right. Do the same with another screen, move it to the left, and you again get a half-screen. Dunno what this feature is called, but it exists in Win7 & Win8, great for doing copy-and-paste from one to another.

Problem is, when I drag to the left, it goes off into space.

To my own stupidity I was writing a paper inside an active web page. I had saved the text to the clipboard, but inadvertently copied over it. Then in what amounts to even greater stupidity I hit the back button in IE and lost all the text in the previous window. My question is, if I have not closed IE since this happened, is there anyway to recover the text? Does it reside somewhere in memory, temp file, cookie etc? I have tried going back through IE history etc but when the same window appears the text is missing. I know it's a long shot but I have to try....

As far as I`m aware, you`ve lost it for good.

Hello everyone

The following question was asked way back in 2004 but I can't find the answer, and I've got exactly the same problem today! I would be really grateful for help with this - I have copied and pasted a long article coming in at 288 pages and I want to reduce it to 144 pages!

Please help a humble, non-computerized soul out. I have pasted 161 pages of
text into word from an e-mail. I want to print it out, but each line only
goes halfway across the screen and then begins a new line.

The borders are maximized, and it should really be reduced to only 80 pages
in length, but I can't figure out how to make the pasted text fill the
document (side to side) without going through it, line by line, and deleting
the empty spaces (they seem to be the result of hitting enter).

I've done this before with short e-mails and usually I just go through, line
by line, and delete the spaces. But this time, it will take me hours and
hours to do that. There has to be a way to make the text fill the page...
please help!!!

Thank you!

A:Pasted Text Won't Fill Page - Please Help

I suspect that the 'copy' is also coping the 'end of line markers' off the original line length ... past your 'copies' into a non-formating writing program like MS Notepad.

Notepad will strip out any and all format except, I believe, paragraph returns. I may be wrong on the last bit. Then copy-n-paste into Word, or whatever you're using.

You will, however, have to reformat the whole thing to match the original.

Now, after saying all that, you could, if using MS Word turn on the 'formatting controls' so you can see where & what format has been set, then, once again you will have to go through the whole document to check the format to the way you want it.

Either way, I think you's in for a long haul, good luck, hoped that helped.

All of a sudden, my gmails are running off the screen. I cleared my cache, actually, cleared out all the junk I could think of, but that didn't help. There's nothing in Gmail's settings that I can find that lets you set a margin. Nothing out in cyberspace about this problem particular to Gmail.

Suggestions, anyone?

Many thanks,

I've never seen a problem like this before today. While browsing the web with either IE or Firefox, there is a small to medium amount of the text that does not appear. The page formatting is in order, only the display of text is in error. Even when highlighted its still invisible, but appears when copied and pasted. I can include screen shots if needed, but I don't know how to explain it any better.

When I open FF support page it doesn't show text, only some graphics. If I type in the search box nothing shows, but if I hit enter the only things that show are the tag words that I entered. If I find tools,add-ons, 'update plug-ins' I don't get any buttons to select in the update page. However, if I 'Print Preview' all the info is shown. I've tried Firefox, IE and Chrome browsers. they all show the same. At this point I am not able to get any help from Firefox. This seems like it may be a Vista problem?

I just reinstalled Windows XP and for some reason the way the texts on the web pages are displayed is different (in both IE and Firefox). Now, the texts are noticably thinner than before which makes it hard to read and irritates my eyes. I tried adjusting the text size and encoding but it can only enlarge the size of the characters - I only want the texts to be the same size but thicker. I also tried adjusting the dpi setting on Control Panel but it only changes the texts on menu bar but not the ones in the web page.
Is there anyway to fix this?

For you Firefox browser to make the text larger and thicker hold down the ALT button and turn the scroll wheel on your mouse toward you at the same time.

I have been having this (relatively minor) problem for quite some time now. What happens is, that occasionally, the text cursor does not appear in the password boxes on the XP home page. This means that I can not log on to any account with a password, while the problem persists. There are only two ways I have discovered to stop the problem from persisting.

(A) I log on and off of an account without a password (temporary fix that does not always work.)
(B) I restart the computer (again temporary, but surefire)
(While one would assume this means (B) is the better option, it is not necessarily, it means that I am unable to save anything that may be open on any passworded accounts.)

Obviously I am using Windows XP.

I have had this problem since I have used this computer (It was someone else's before, so I can not get an accurate "medical history.")

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


A:Missing Text Cursor On The Xp Home Page

I had this problem about a year ago. It was intermittent but when it happened I also had to reboot to get it back, then I found that if I pressed CTR-ALTor maybe it was Control (I can't remember for sure) a box appeared asking if I had forgotten my passport this box would accept it and I could then sign in without the reboot. I tried several times to get advice on how to fix this without luck.

I persevered with it for a while then while following a tutorial on something completely unrelated I found that in Control Panel-Sounds and Audio- Sounds, I had less entries listed in my account than my daughter(who shares this PC with me had in hers). I had previously noticed that certain sounds ie that rustling sound you get when you empty your Recycle bin had disappeared. Anyway to cut a long story short I posted the problem on a couple of sites and got a reply from a guy at AumHa Forums who walked me through how to delete my sounds and copy and import my daughters. This solved that problem for me and also since then I have never had a vanishing sign in cursor either. I don't know enough about PC's to know how they were related but it solved the problem for me.

Not sure if this is any help but it won't do any harm to have a look.

While browsing the web and loading a web page, my screen suddenly went to a blank white page with random text written all over it, this did not last very long at all (one second max, probably less), then proceeded to load my destination page without any more problems.  I could not read what the text said, as it happened too quick.
Just wondering if anyone has experienced this before, and what it might be.  I'm almost certain this was just a connection related glitch of some sort, but I wanted to see if anyone here suspects anything malicious.  (Anti virus hasn't detected anything).

I emailed myself an image from another computer which I had cropped. I saved the image on this computer, and as I looked at the thumbnail in my Zune program, the cropped areas were revealed displaying the original image. Also, in The GIMP, the cropped areas were revealed in the preview box. I decided I want to have the original, uncropped image back.

Is there a way to do this?

Obviously the information is still present somewhere in the image file, because it would not be able to reveal those areas in thumbnails, but how would one go about retrieving that information?

Any help would be great.

A:Restore Cropped Image

You may need to supply more details, such as what program you used to crop the image.

In general the cropped data is lost (even though the thumbnail may not have updated to show this) but in some programs (such as Picasa) the origninal image data is retained, at least on the original computer

So recently, I received a blue screen of death. The error was something along the lines of:

I have a spreadsheet that has nine columns. Once of these columns (the fourth column) is used for a single character as a method of immediately letting the user know that the row in particular is different to the others. So, there's nothing different about that at all.

What I'd like to be able to do, though, is to have the other eight columns (the three columns before the column mentioned above and the five after) all change their background colour when the single character is entered in the fourth column.

So, if the user inputs data in a new row and leaves the fourth column cell blank, nothing happens. If the user enters the symbol (let's say it's a "#"), then the nine columns will all change their background colour to red.

If anyone can help me with this, I'd greatly appreciate it.

So, I had the same problem as above. I had developed a dll using Qt that worked fine on my machine but would not register on another. The familiar "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect..." appears when I ran the depencency walker on the dll.

So this was the solution that worked for me, which may help some others see what's going wrong here:

Within my dll the manifest emedded read:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
<assemblyIdentity type="win32" name="Microsoft.VC80.DebugCRT" version="8.0.50608.0" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b"></assemblyIdentity>

It seemed that the assembly definition was not found upon my client computer. So then, from within my original computer's 'Windows\WinSxS' directory, I copied the 'x86_Microsoft.VC80.DebugCRT_1f...' directory and it's associated files within the 'Policies' and 'Manifests' directories onto the client computer. Once copied, the dll registrered fine.

Hope this helps...

First post...

I am coming to you as a last resort. I built my own PC and installed Vista Ultimate 64 bit OEM edition. Has been working fine for ~2 years.
Now every time I attempt to open a program I get the error "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail".

The only progam that is barely working is IE 64 bit edition. I cannot download or run any files.

Microsoft wants 59$ to speak to a technical support representative(What a joke, multibillion dollar company wants extra $ for tech support??...).

Doing a ton of research I have tried various things to remedy this with no avail. System restore did not work. Doing a sfc /scannow in command prompt does not work, it does not even run. Wasted 3 hours of my life doing a thorough checkdisk as well.

The error in the event log is as follows...
Error in manifest or policy file "C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\" on line 18. Invalid Xml syntax.

So the problem has to do with this manifest file? I really am clueless as to my next move. I can not download and run anything at all.... Can I do a Vista repair installation with my OEM version?

Should I try and get my hands on a cheap upgrade version of Windows 7?

Using Office 2003 on XP SP3 machine with lots of resources.
Lately, occasionally I will print a page which will in the case of Word, print a watermark and footer, but no text. With Excel it is the grid which prints, but not the text in the grid. Copying from excel to word will give the same results. No error messages.

In the Excel case, other sheets in the same workbook print fine. A pdf made from the Excel sheet, prints fine.

Reinstalled office after uninstalling it, no difference.

Updated the printer (officejet 7780 all in one) drivers, no change. Note this printer has been installed and has worked fine for several years.

I'm guessing that somethng is corrupted in a given sheet that doesn't print properly??? Has anyone seen/cured this problem?

An additional annoyance I have is that the cursor occasionally disappears from where it is in a document if there is no active typing. It requires a mouse click on the appropriate spot to bring it back. Problem appeared about 6 months ago and is still here. Anyone?

We have checked everything - page setup, line spacing etc and have even uninstalled and re-installed both Office and the printer. We can however open and print existing documents without a problem! How can we fix this???? Thanks

"The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."

First of all, I've gotten this on at least 3 different programs. Everyone who's written about this seems to think it's related to their specific's not! Secondly, what I find here in the forum on the subject tells me there has been no solution...also am unable to find any on the 'net'. I think it acts like a virus and is spreading...

What's up with this??? Does anyone know...? It has kept me from opening iTunes so I can't work with my iPad anymore. Certainly there must be someone knowledgeable enough to know what this is and what to do about it...right?:

Ok so I am going to go straight into the good stuff.

Essentially I launch Dragon Age and get an error about side by side configuration. I have already done an enormous amount of research on this subject and have found that the problem is usually attributed to the C++ Redistributable from Microsoft.

I tried to remedy this problem 3 different ways (manually working from a system restore point where Dragon Age & Bioshock 2 did not work, but Mass Effect 2, Call of Duty MW2, and the Original Bioshock were still fully functional) this system restore point had the Microsoft 2008 C++ Redistributable installed, and again the games I listed in parenthesis were working fine.

I first uninstalled the 2008 Redistributable and downloaded and installed the 2005 Redistributable, restarted the computer (even though it did not prompt me) and ran into a massive error. Essentially, this install made every game unplayable (all of those I listed above).

Next, I uninstalled the 2005 Redistributable and reinstalled the 2008 without a restart, and tried to launch every game listed above. Of course, I was back to square one, with Dragon Age and Bioshock 2 still giving me the side by side configuration error.

Lastly I tried launching each game through the program 'depends.exe' (using the .exe) to see exactly which dependencies each game required. Of course, both Dragon Age and Bioshock 2 gave me the side by side configuration, telling me that a MSVCP80.dll file could not be found with... Read more

A:Side by Side Configuration Error (Attempted several 'easy' fixes already)

This error is by no means fixed, however I thought that I would post in some detailed error information from my event viewer (please read the first post, however, as my problem is unique):

So my issue is that when I log into my computer it will some times (not all the time) revert from a side by side multi monitor setup to a over under setup. Like if you go into screen resolution settings I will have it set to monitor 1 on the left, and monitor 2 on the right, then when I lock the computer and then log back in, it will have monitor 1 positioned over the top of monitor 2.

I'm thinking there is possibly a default that it keeps going back to, but I'm not sure where I would look for that, other than the screen resolution settings. Another possibility for the origin of this problem could be Microsoft User Experience Virtualization Agent, which we have installed on all our computers here to synchronize the various setting we have connected to our profiles. It looks like UEV might synchronize monitor layout settings, and with that it could be some how defaulting on an over under set up. Overall I am unsure of what to do about his.

Any one have any ideas?

I have extensively searched these forums for a solution to my problem but can't find it. I have found some similar problems, but none exactly the same, here is what happened:

I have a Windows7 computer running just fine. I pulled the hard drive out of my old computer and had installed it in the new one and it seems fine. I can access both drives and i all my files are there. The problem i am having is that i can't open any files from my old hard drive if the program they need to open is also on that old hard drive.

For example, my old hard drive has AutoCAD on it, my new hard drive doesn't. When i click on AutoCad i get the annoying "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect" message. This happens with lots of programs, not just AutoCAD. I have MS Office on the old hard drive but when I try to open a word or excel file it won't open. It's like the computer is trying to open files from my old hard drive with applications that are on my new drive. This is a problem because i cant afford to buy 2 copies of autoCAD and 2 copies of MS Office and 2 copies of every program i have.

I feel like there is a simple fix for this but i can't figure this one out.
Thank you for help!!!!

A:Installed 2nd hard drive....side-by-side configuration incorrect

Hi welcome to the forum.

to my knowledge you will need to reinstall the programs as you cant use programs that are installed on the hard drive from another computer as it will have writen registry items when the program was installed.

i'm sure someone will correct me if i am wrong.

I just came home from work and there was a power failiure while I was working. I turned my computer back on and went to open Google Chrome, but this message appeared...

"The application has failed to start because its side by side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail."

I have no clue what this means or what to do. I'm using safari at the moment and went on google and all the instructions look really confusing. I know VERY little about computers and the terms and what not. So any help would be greatly appreciated.

If this "repair" does not work I would try a restore point if you have a recent one.

On quite a few different programs, i'm getting the error message:

"The application has failed to start because its side by side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail"

I've read so many forums online where people have had a similar issue, but nothing has been helpful. The most common suggestion is related to VisualC++ but when i installed it, I got the same error! I tried running it without saving, then I saved it and tried running it, again the same error.

I've opened the event viewer, theres quite a few 'sidebyside' error messages, but I dont know what to do with any of that information. The first side by side error is this one:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Silverlight\4.0.50524.0\Silverlight.Configuration.exe

I havn't a clue how it started, my computer was fine yesterday, I opened it today to these errors, I tried rebooting but it didnt help.

If any more information is needed, I'll provide what I can.

Hey Guys,
I have a problem.   Last night, i was up all night, using my pc. I had quite a few tabs open (using chrome), and every once in a while, the cpu had a lot of Work to do, so the pc would respond more slow. During one of these slows, something different happened. Quite a lot of icons just turned into one of the old school Windows icons, most (if not all) of them being .exe files. I wanted to fix all of this, so I used Bullguard, and after that i wanted to use CCleaner. CCleaner didn't Work. Neither did the other programs. They gave me an error in the lines of:

"This version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) verion of the program."

Also, whenever i shut down my computer, or boot it up, an error pops up from LogonUI.exe:

"Error: C:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\windows live\wlidcredprov.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error"

I figured out how to fix this part. I simply installed Windows Live Essentials.
And when I open Google Chrome, it just gives me another error. It says that the side by side configuration is incorrect.
I tried uninstalling MyWinlocker but, it is still running in the system tray. I tried looking for a process called mwl.exe, but I can't find it.
Also, whenever the computer boots up, I am also greeted with a certain window. It's the window th... Read more
