    Not sure I have the right forum - but here goes .. Fresh install Win 8 Pro on Lenovo T500 .. Having issues with printers. I can follow basically the same process as in Win 7 Pro to install printers - or use the Printer Management console - which seems to be basically the same thing - and I can successfully install HP printers found on the network connected with jet direct cards (or at least it teels me I was successful) but it wont print even the Test Page .. (all printers are functional and printing from Win 7 over the network). I am connected to my home network (private) I can see and access files on my other computers ..
