Question about Computers & Internet
Hello calbj5, Since you didn't provide a make /model computer or printer..all I can provide is general guidelines for you.. Your printer will have a few features in that you will need to determine what fits your system best.. Many newer printers use a USB port to communicate with the computer.. This is a modular type plug ( one end will match the plug on your printer ) and the other end will be plugge dinto any available USB port on the back of your computer, ( older systems used what they call a D-Type cable assembly ) and if tha is what you require, you willl need to get that cable. Like I said.. most newer style printers come with the USB type cable as standard. You will also find the power cord provided with your printer..One ened plugs into the back or side mating plug of the printer and the other to your power receptacle ( hopefully you are using a surge protector set up)
Once you have both cables hooked up and plugged in.. you've probably been provided with a CD that came with your computer as well as instructions for loading the drivers on that CD ( most of the time) you just insert the CD into your CD player and it wil ask a few questions and self load.. Please let me know if this gets you going or youneed clarification.. It's always a good idea to provide brand and model numbers in your questions.. That helps us in helping you.. Good Luck !
