Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have had an hpLaserJet printer working beautifully with my Dell Inspiron laptop computer. Now...because of recent difficulty with the Inspiron, I have switched to a newer Dell Centrino Laptop. I have tried and tried to "hook-up" the printer to this newer Laptop to no avail. I don't have the original software for the printer-(or apparently) the right driver. Can you tell me 'step-by-step' what to do? It would be greatly appreciated

    There are many models of HP LaserJets. Could you provide the model?



    How are you connecting to the printer (usb, parallel, network?)



    Thanks, Label_Guy

    Which operating system did the old laptop have and what operating system does the new laptop have? Also in most cases you must install printer software before plugging the printer up to the computer.

BigFatGeek:

Hope I didn't intrude... If you don't mind, I'll take a stab at this.

Judiator:

As my distinguished collegue noted, there can be significant variations in the instructions based on the Operating System, as well as the exact LaserJet Model and the type of connection.

I suggest you connect the printer to your laptop. If Windows tries to install a driver, hit "Cancel".

Go to http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html and hit the "Start Detection" button.

That site should be able to detect your operating system and product model, and will provide instructions. If it can't detect your product, you can find the model by looking for a "LaserJet xxxx" logo on the front of the printer, or on a label on the back.

Best of luck,
Label_Guy

Unplugged Dell Inspiron 1626 computer and all components. I have re-connected all devises and now neither printer will print. Suggestions?


Re- load the printer software that came with the printer! The driver for the printer is not being seen by the computer. When you load the software it will load the correct drivers.

Battery will not charge. The battery is new, verified on another laptop and it works fine (takes a charge). Unit works fine when connected directly to AC. The laptop is a Dell inspiron E1505. How do I...


This isn't easily done. Have you recently replaced your power adapter for any reason. I've found that some laptop batteries won't charge if the charger is just slightly different from the original one, even if it's another Dell power adapter. If you haven't replaced the power adapter recently then it may be that your female power jack isn't properly seated or soldered into the motherboard. To reseat or resolder the jack with require you do completely dismantle your laptop. If you're not confident it doing this, then don't try it yourself. Also, resoldering the jack isn't as easy as it would seem either. Before doing any dismantling, remover your battery, turn on your computer and gently wriggle the adapter around in the female jack of the computer. Does your computer shut off on you? If so, then you definitely have power jack issues. See madhattercomputers.com

Try installing the printer as a LPT Port or USB Port connection. Do not allow it search for any printers.
You can change port access later.
This is how I install my HP4050N Network printer.

I own a Dell V305w and have it wirelessly connected to my dell inspiron windows 7 pc. Prior to installing windows7 it worked beautifully right after I installed windows 7... NOTHING... I've updated...


If it is connected wirelessly, the computer needs to see it as a network printer. If it sees it as a local printer, it will not be able to print.

In addition to your print queue, make sure the Spooler service is running.

Tap to click does not work dell inspiron 1501


Tap to click is the feature of the touchpad driver. Uninstall any existing touchpad drivers and then restart the computer.
Go to www.support.dell.com enter the computer service tag and get the drivers for the touchpad from there. Also update the BIOS of your computer to the most recent version. In most cases a part replacement is not needed and the issue should be fixed.

My dell inspiron 1525 webcam wont work with yahoo messenger


This is happening because the Dell webcam central is accessing the webcam at the same time as yahoo messenger. Click on start and click on Run(XP), Type MSCONFIG in start search (Vista) and you'll get the system configuration utility. Open it and go to the startup tab. Uncheck anything related to Dell webcam. Click on Apply and OK and restart the computer. If yahoo messenger shows a black screen uninstall Yahoo messenger and reinstall with the more recent version.

Dell 3300 Printer Adapter and Vista


Vista is tricky when adding networked printers.  
Add printer by using a local device, not a networked device.  Assume the printer is connected locally to the machine.
