I have a Canon printer which is great and an HP laptop which is great. I have been using them together for over a year. No problems. All of the sudden one day I was in Word which was working perfectly fine and printed a document. After that my cursor just continuously rolls and rolls in Word. I am able to get to my documents but typing and loading become nearly painstaking. If I print something, then I have to put the Office suite disc in the computer and “repair” it, then close everything down and restart my computer. After that, word goes right back to normal. I don’t get it. I have uninstalled Office suite and re-installed it but that didn’t help either. I am at a loss.
I have to have a word processing, Excel and PowerPoint type software as I am an online student. I have downloaded several freewares but none of them offer me the tools I need to write formal papers (not that I can find anyway). Please help with either the issue with Word or a substitute that allows me to plot graphs, generate APA format, include bibliography, etc. All the things one needs as a student.
Lastly, this problem only occurs in Word. PowerPoint and Excel are fine. I am at my wit’s end and a loss of where to go from here. I cannot afford to purchase the software again on my budget. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
