Hi, I would suggest you update your printer drivers, even though it may be fairly new or brand new, try this, follow instructions exactly as written, do not use installation cd:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.

After installing Mountain Lion, my Lexmark Pro901 won't print and scan. Help


Apparently Apple have not included the Driver from Lexmark, so you have to use their own driver to make thing work. Lexmark Tech support will talk you through it.

Pc won't accept printer via usb connection


So why won't it accept the printer? Is the printer and your operating system on the computer compatible? Did you install the printer and drivers? Are you sure the USB Port works?
Have you tried a different USB Port?

Click Start/Control Panel and look for Printers. Open it and make sure you don't have more than one instance of the printer installed. If you do, then you're confusing the computer. You can also check to see if more than one of the same printer is installed by opening a word document, then click File, then Print, and when the print window opens up click the Down Arrow on the line that shows the printer name. This will show you all other installed printers.

I have a HP Officejet 4500 printer, and when I try to connect it, via ethernet cord, to my laptop, it won't connect. I did download and install via installation CD, so it's installed. Mind you I...


Hi ericcris10se
If you have trouble with the ethernet connection , try USB . If it also fails there , your device is defective or you have a driver issue . Make sure you have installed the correct driver and prefer the download file to the cd version :

Pc don't recogise new hardware


It sounds as if your power supply isn't putting out enough to support so many USB devices on your system. If you have an external USB Hub, do you have a power adapter plugged into it?
