Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Printer no longer on my laptop but is on my desktop

How can I get the printer back on my laptop. I always unplug my desktop because of storms even though I have a surge protector on it. I had used my laptop one night late preparing lesson plans and left it to charge the next day. A storm came and I can no longer print. When I looked closer, my printer had been wiped out. I lost my cd. How can I get it back on my laptop. I am not computer literate.

Thank you,

Go into the control panel and open printers and hardware. Look to see if your printer has a black checkmark next to it signifying that it is the default printer. If not, right click on it and select "make this my default printer".

Unplug your printer from the power outlet and from your laptop for about 60 seconds. This will reset it. Plug them back in and try again after your laptop has recognized it. If this does not work uninstall and reinstall the print drivers and software. This should work for you and you will be able to print. Hope this helps!
please leave rating if this helps! thx

Laptop will not power up after being unplugged during a storm

Try taking the battery out and leaving it out, then plugging it in and see if it works on power. If it does, unplug it and try seeing if the battery works again.. If not, the battery is faulty and needs replacement.

Printer will not turn on

the UPS is unplugged from the power outlet but it is still connected to the modem

it is a lightning storm - and computer equipments & peripherals can only withstand very little amount of electricity

check your warranty status (warranty starts from the date of purchase) then call the vendor
