Default Print Preview Error Message ???

Up until yesterday evening, I was able to see the "Print Preview" on both my Word & Excel document from my laptop downstair, which is connected with my computer, through wireless router.

I never used to take print-outs straight from my laptop, but I rather like to at least be able to see the "Print Preview" (so can check the document that needs printing & THEN I print that particular document from the PC upstair).

However this morning, all of a sudden, I couldn't see the "Print Preview" in Excel, but can still see it quite successfully in Word, which seems rather weird.

I'm getting error message saying:

"No printers are installed. To install a printer:
In Microsoft Windows 2000, click ................
In Microsoft Windows XP, click .................."

Could anyone around help me ???

By the way, although I never use my laptop to get the print-outs directly from it, I guess I wouldn't mind doing so, if it's possible. Any idea about setting it up ???

Nope, I\'m NOT God, but I\'m British (which is the next best thing) ;)

I'd try setting up the printer through the network on the laptop again. Something in your network settings mighta got screwed up.

As for setting up a printer locally, it's easy. Try to use a printer with a USB port for convenience.
