    what does the correct cord look like to plug my hp deskjet d2400 printer into my computer and does it matter what port I plug it into. I'm not sure the cord I have is correct?

    You haven't specified anything so you never will be sure.

It is either a usb "A" connector which is the squarish side of the usb cable and the flatter "B" connector is the side that goes into your computer's usb jack. Some printers, like yours also still use a parallel port which is a Centronics big, wide rectangular connector that connects to the printer side and the other end is a DB25 parallel connector than goes to the parallel DB25 printer jack on your computer. You must have at least one of those cables but you only use one or the other. The usb will be configured to a usb local printer port or the parallel will use the LPT1 port. will provide you with a quick install brochure with pictures for you to see. post back if you need more help!

try checking your color cords, make sure the white and red cords are connected to the "Audio Out ports" on the back of the DVD/VHS player and then make sure they are running to the tv ports correctly. White to the white tv port and Red to the Red tv port.

Some of these sets have to run seperate red and white RCA cables along with the HDMI. I know it sounds silly but it is the truth. Look for audio inputs on the back near the HDMI port.

Basically on my xbox its reading the ip address failed

Make sure all your connections are pluged in and have no loose ends. Also make sure that you dont have any firewall protection on your computer, or if you do make sure it has the correct ports open. Other wise this may cause some of the ports not to open when you are wanting to XBL. Contact for the lists of ports to be open on the router. Hope this helps!
