PCL X Error - Adobe Reader

by Maddogmcree / July 23, 2008 6:09 PM PDT

Hey,

Here are the specs of the computer in question.

Make: HP
Model: DX2000 MT
OS: Windows XP
CPU: Intel Celeron
Memory: 256 MB
Hard Drive: 40GB

Everytime it wants to print a .pdf document it comes up with a PCL X error.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mad.

I forgot to add that it can print .pdf documents.

Since I'm the IT Assistant at a Law Firm, they're trying to print off A3 plans using Adobe Reader.

Other documents print correctly, however it's only when trying to print A3 plans it shows that message.

They have another reader and what I'd try next.

Thanks Bob for the reply.

I'll give it a try, I hope there's a fix for it somewhere.

It does seem pretty odd.

If you see anything, can you contact me or something?

But I was taking a shot at this error GUESSING what printer you have. The PCL X error on google seemed to point to printer driver settings.

I knew about tracking, don't know what I was going on about with the contacting.

Seeing as tracking will let me know when there's a future update.

Haha, thanks anyway.

Mad.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
