Send a message via Yahoo to talldude123

That just means that Microsoft hasn't "tested" the printer. My Wireless Card says the same before installing, i just ignore as well. It wont hurt the system.

With all due respect John, I am the head of IT and I have it on good authority. If you type "Google" into Google, you can break the Internet. So please, no one try it, even for a joke.........It's not a laughing matter. You can break the Internet.
