HP Photosmart C6300 Wont Print

My pal has the above but the device will not print in wireless mode from his Dell laptop. It does evertyhing else i.e. scans, copies and prints when cable connected. It's just the wireless printing thats the problem. What may be causing it is the fact that he has a 60gb hd and only has 6.5gb free space left. Could this be causing the prob?

I suppose it is possible, not too sure though. However the computer will be running slow as the drive really is over full, 75% is a good rule of thumb as a maximum. Only having 6.5GB leaves little for the swapfile to work efficiently with. Would suggest a second drive in an enclosre box and transfer all data files to that thus freeing up space on the main drive.

Thanks Jak. I will try that tomorrow and advise.

Thanks Jak_1. The printer was faulty. Returned to PC World and money back.
