Thank you for your answer, I have another questions to this.....on the back of my printer, it doesn't have a usb connection place. it only has a big cable port... one of those kinds that you push the cable in then screw the two little things in to secure..
If a usb cable will do.... want both ends of the usb cable be... usb????
i'm so illiterate when it comes to this kind of stuff.
please help..

Hi Debbie,

You should be able to use this printer with a USB cable. You can pick up a USB cable just about anywhere that they sell computer or printer equipment. Just tell them you need a USB printer cable. This is a standard item and no further description is needed.

The Driver for this will probably be a native driver, and you probably wont have to download a new one, but just in case, here is the link for the driver directly from HP.

Good Luck

We changed computers and cannot get the printer to work. We have the HP Desk Jet 5550 Ink Printer. What should we be doing to get it to work?


You will need to find the printer drivers for that printer specific for the operating system in your new computer. The best place to do that is on HP's website. If you go to www.hp .com click on support or drivers and put in any information it asks for. If you just purchased a new computer it is probably running windows 7. Verify that that is the case and look for drivers for your printer that support windows 7.
