Question about Dell 966 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Dell 966 not being recognized by computers

The home was struck by lightening and quite a bit of damage including loss of the computer. Thought the printer was fine since it still turned on and copied without a problem. I brought it to the office & have tried multiple cables and multiple computers and apparantly the usb power source is blown. There is an insurance claim in process so I had hoped Dell could give some guidance whether it was repairable, etc. but of course it is out of warranty. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.

It sounds like you were just using the printer as a copier after the damage to the connected computer. If i'm understanding you correctly, you are saying that you have sense then connected it to other computers and with several different cables. Does it power up? If it does it might be worth repairing. Does the computer acknowledge that new hardware was found? If so it just needs a driver. That printer is around $100 bucks. If it powers up and is just the usb port that is out it can be fixed for less than the cost of a new one.

Dell inspiron 560 won't recognize network adapter


Try reinstalling the NIC driver. If its separate network card, connected in PCI adapter, try to remove and plug it back in to see if its found after.

If these actions do not help, maybe NIC was damager with the power outage, it can happen.

Dell inspiron 560 won't recognize network adapter


if there is no netework adapter in device manager or any device that is not instaled try checking in BIOS if it is enabled. sometimes after power loss bios is reset. if it is enabled in BIOS that short power outage probably killed your network adapter. you can add some PCI network adapter and solve your problem.

It appears lightening has damaged your router. Do you have a surge protected powerboard and do you plug all your computer equipment into this powerboard?
If you do not have a surge protection board, I suggest you install one to protect your equipment.
