Printer 'access denied' errors
The use of an incompatible driver for a printer will not support the operation of the printer device. When you are trying to access the printer, and system printer driver files are not installed it will result in 'access denied' errors. If any printer files are corrupt due to a virus attack, access will be denied for that printer. If the printer is not properly installed on the Operating System it might cause the problem of printer access.
If you find that the printer is not working, it may be due to an incorrect driver for printer. If the installed printer in Windows XP is not compatible with the Operating System, this will cause an error like printer access denied. If such an error occurs, you will not be able to use the printer. If you have installed incompatible drivers, then the printer will not work.
You can install a printer using a printer CD which is on your system. Otherwise you can visit the manufacturers website and download the specific and proper driver files for the operation of the printer. Check the installation of printer in your system. If the driver files used for the printer are not compatible, it will cause an error message. Another way is to remove and then reinstall the printer through the ‘Printers and Faxes’ command on the Start menu.
