Common Dell Printer Troubleshooting Steps

Dell printers do a pretty good job when it comes to printing. However, despite their reliability and best of the efforts that users put in, dell printers often malfunction. They of course are not exempted from the misfortune of malfunctioning at least at some point in time their lifecycle. Since things go wrong because they have to with the period of time, Dell rolls out updates, patches, tweaks, and enhancements for its Dell printers.
Besides these things what Dell printers need is a handy Dell printer support guide that can help users instantly and when needed, even during the odd times. So here I am discussing some points to help you fix common Dell printer problems.
Step1: If your Dell printer stops printing, check the paper tray first. There is a possibility that the paper tray might have become empty. In this case, you can reload the paper tray and then start printing. If the paper tray has some papers in it, check a few more things. Since a Dell printer pulls a paper only from one side and not from both the sides, the other side of it stays immobile. So if the other side of a paper is problematic, it might obstruct it from being pulled inside for printing.
Step2: To get rid of this problem, check that a paper is plain with no projected or fluffed edges. If the paper seems problematic, pull it out from the stack as it will obstruct the paper path and lead to the paper jam problem. Eventually the Dell printer will stop printing. Also never fan the paper stack. Some users often fan the paper stack to prevent papers from sticking to each other. This leads to the major paper feed and jam problem.
Step3: If the print quality of the printout is poor and there are lines running through the text, it indicates that the ink has dried up, clogging the printer nozzle. Clean up the printer. To do so, hit the Options button on your Dell printer> select Cartridges> hit the + button. When the Clean option appears, hit the Select button to start the cleaning. Wait for the process to finish. When done, print a test page.
Step4: If this method does not soften the ink and the print quality remains poor, remove the tone/ink cartridge. Take a soft cloth or cotton swab, dip it into alcohol or hot water, and rub it slowly and carefully against the print head. Also rub it carefully underside the printer nozzle. When done, place the cartridge back in and test a print page. The print quality should improve and the lines running through the text should disappear. Besides, check the cartridge. If it is empty or near-empty, either refill it or replace it.
Step5: Update printer drivers. Windows 7 or Vista users can let their operating system search for Dell printer drivers online. Windows 7/Vista, when instructed, can automatically search for right printer drivers and download and install them automatically to a computer. Users simply have to reboot their computers afterwards. 

Step6: If you are using Windows XP, you can update drivers the 7 or Vista way. You can also manually download and install drivers from the Dell website. To do so, open your web browser and visit the Dell website. Browse to the Drivers & Downloads section and look for the drivers for the Windows XP version. 

Step7: Download the printer driver file to the computer and exit the browser window. Click the Start menu> right click My Computer> select Manage. Select Device Manager> highlight the Hardware tab. Click the Update Driver button, browse for the driver file that was just downloaded, and select it. Wait for the drivers to be updated. When done, restart the computer.
Step8: If it’s a wired printer, check the physical connection of the USB cable. Verify that the cable is not loose from either end. Reseat the cable firmly into the dedicated ports of the computer and printer. When done, reboot your computer and Dell printer as well. Start printing again to check if the problem is fixed or not.
Step9: If it’s a wireless printer, verify that the Internet connection is active and working. If the Internet connection is facing a temporary network glitch, wait for it to be fixed by the ISP. If there is no network glitch and the wireless connection seems to be disconnected, check the settings on the computer and the router. Update drivers in the above mentioned manner.
Step10: Run a printer troubleshooter to troubleshoot and fix any common Dell computer problem. Microsoft has designed a Microsoft Fix it printer troubleshooter for all Dell printer models. Visit the Microsoft website and search for the MicrosoftFixit.Printing.Run.exe tool. Download it and save the file to computer. (See Also how to reset BIOS password in a Dell computer)

Step11: When done, close the browser window. Thereafter, look for the downloaded file and run it. Hit the Next button, accept the Microsoft user license agreement, and then install the tool. When finished, run a scan for the common Dell printer errors. Afterwards, prompt the tool to fix them.

Steps for Removing Sysguard Virus

Chances are-like other people-your PC might also be infected with Sysguard virus. Sysguard is another fake virus removal software that when enters your computer hijacks your browser and stops Task Manager or other applications from running. The program prevents its detection and removal and makes things difficult for you as much as it can. Considering this, I have compiled the below mentioned steps to remove the dangerous software from your computer just in some time. (See Also Virus Removal Support)
Step1: If you are able to access Task Manager, open it and click the Processes tab. Locate any process with the name sysguard.exe or random characters such as 12345.exe or 11.exe etc., select it click End Process. Carefully scan rest of the processes. If there are more such processes, kill them also.
Step2: If you are not able to kill such processes, connect to the Internet and download a process killer like RKill, explorer.exe, or PsKill. Save the file and unzip its contents to another file. Open it and install the tool. Run the tool afterwards, select the suspicious processes, and kill them.  
Step3: If you are unable to access Task Manager or go online for that matter, shut down your computer. Restart it in Safe Mode with Networking. To do so, while the computer is restarting, start tapping the F8 key on the keyboard to get into the boot menu. Use the Down arrow key to reach Safe Mode with Networking and then hit Enter.
Step4: Exit all the windows including Task Manager. Click the Start menu> go to My Computer> C:\ drive> Program Files> and Temp. Look for sysguard.exe or random character file in the Temp folder, right click on it and click Delete to delete it. Repeat the procedure for other such files. Exit the Temp folder window.
Step5: Click the Start button> My Computer> C:\ drive> Documents and Settings> your user profile> Local Settings> and Temp. Locate the Sysguard and other random character files such as 172.exe, balloon.exe, vru.exe, install.exe, and not_detect-200812\sysguarad.exe and remove them. If you don’t see Local Settings in your user profile, click the Tools tab> select Folder Options.
Step6: Click the View tab> select the Show hidden files and folders option.  It will now display all the folders in your user profile. Navigate to the Temp folder and do the needful. When done, go to the Application Data folder and repeat the procedure.
Step7: Close all the windows and click the Start menu> Run. Type ‘regedit’ in the Open box and click OK. On Windows Registry Editor, take a registry backup before modifying the registry. It is a must-to-do procedure as it will save your data from being lost due to wrong modifications that can lead to system crash or other severe problems. 

 Step8: You can use the built-in Export option in the File menu in Registry Editor to back up your registry. This will launch the Import Export Wizard which will help you export your registry and restore it later on or when needed. Another option to back up your registry is to create a system restore point. It will help you restore your computer to an earlier time or date when things were fine.
Step9: Once you are done with registry backup, open Registry Editor and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftware> Sysguard. Remove the Sysguard folder and confirm its deletion. Now navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE> Software> FolderA> Keyname. Delete this key in the FolderA. Similarly go to FolderB and FolderC under Software to delete other such keys.
Step10: When done, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER> Software> Microsoft> Windows NT> CurrentVersion> Winlogon> Shell [%Windows%]> sysguard> sysguard.exe. Remove the last two entries from the branch. Similarly remove sysguard> sysguard.exe from the Shell [%PROGRAM_FILES%] branch. Exit Registry Editor and other windows.
Step11: Connect to the Internet and download free versions of Spybot Search and Destroy and Hijackthis programs from their respective websites. Save the files and unzip their contents into other files. Open them one by one and install both the programs. Open the first program and update it. Now run a full system scan and wait until it completes. When finished, prompt the tool to delete all the infected files that were found in scanning.
Step12: Repeat this procedure with the other tool also. Once you have run scans from both the tools, close them. Open your security program (antivirus or anti-spyware whichever you have on your computer) and update it. Wait until all the updates are duly downloaded and installed. When done, run a full system scan. Prompt your security software to delete any infection that were found during the scan. (If you don't have an antivirus, you can buy McAfee here)
Step13: Close all the windows and reboot your computer. Windows will load up normwally now. Do not press any key during the reboot process. In future, never download free utilities from torrent websites as they may contain such malicious viruses or Trojans etc. 
***You must be logged in as an administrator to make some of the above mentioned changes. Your user profile is the account that you have created to log in to your computer. Admin is the master account from which all the accounts including yours can be managed.
***If you do not want to carry out this procedure on your own as it may prove difficult, take help of an expert online virus removal support service.

How to Run Disk Defragmenter in Windows 8

Bah! Windows 8 is not what Windows used to look like. How do I go to Control Panel? How do I clean up my disk? From where do I open up another tab in my web browser? You must be going in circles over how you will use your computer now especially if you have had an experience with Windows 8 with an upgrade plan in mind. With the onset of Windows 8, it has become a bit difficult for many users to use their computers the way they have been using it from a long, really long time. But then again change is must and that’s what Microsoft realized that it’s for good.

It’s the basic yet powerful feature in Windows systems to organize disk space for better use. It’s good that Microsoft didn’t give feature a miss in Windows 8. Check these methods given below and learn to defrag your disk in Windows 8: (See Also Windows 8 upgrade support)
1. To defragment you disk, hover your mouse around to bring up the Charm bar. Click Search to open the Search bar. Type ‘defragment’ (without quotes) in the Search bar and hit Enter. Even if you do not hit Enter, you will see search results in left hand side. If no results appear using ‘Defragment’, you can type ‘optimize drive’ in the Search bar.
2. The Search bar is identical to Windows 7’s. Click Defragment and optimize your drives in the left hand side and then click Settings. In the Optimize Drives window, select a drive to defrag and then click the Optimize button. (See Also how to schedule disk defragment in Windows 7)
3. You can also click Analyze before clicking Optimize if you want to analyze the drive. It will begin the disk defragmentation process. Wait while it finishes. You can note this that Windows 8 automatically optimizes your disks on a weekly basis. So there is no need to manually do it.
4. You can also change your defragment/optimize settings by clicking the Change settings button. Adjust your settings and then click OK. (See Also Windows 8 upgrade essentials)
5. Another method of defragmenting drives is from command line in Command Prompt. This method is incredibly fast for defragmenting your drives. It speeds up the process of defragmentation and lets you organize your drives faster.
6. Press the Windows and R keys to bring up Run utility. Type ‘cmd’ in the Run window and click OK. This will open up Command Prompt. Type ‘defrag’ and hit Enter. It will open up a list of defragment options on the Command Prompt window. 

7. Make sure that you are logged in with admin rights; otherwise you won’t be able to defrag your drive(s). You can use these commands to analyze and defrag your drive. If you want to analyze your disk before defragment, type ‘defrag –a’ and hit Enter.
8. If you want to defrag your entire C:\ drive, you can type ‘defrag C: -v -w’ and hit Enter. If you want to defrag any other drive, simple replace C: drive with its name and hit Enter. If you want to defrag multiple drives simultaneously, type ‘defrag /r’ and hit Enter.
9. If you want to defrag each and every item, type ‘defrag -w’ and hit Enter. You can also print the defrag results by typing ‘defrag –v’. Exit Command Prompt when done. (See Also What's New in Windows 8)
