Well it all depends on what type of printer it is. Most printing companies don't give a disc with their printer. Mainly because they are supposed to install automatically when plugged in. If your computer asks for a disc, maybe it needs one to install the printer. try contacting the company who mad the printer. You never know if they forgot to put the disc in when they packed it. If that is the case, they probably will be more than happy to give you another disc.

Hope this helps!

Printer not being recognized by computer


Sir/Madam

1. Is the printer turned on?
Make sure the printer is turned on.
Make sure the power cord is securely plugged into the electrical outlet.
Test the power by plugging in the power cord of another electrical appliance to an electrical outlet and turn it on. If the power to the other electrical appliance comes on, the printer may be considered to be faulty.
If this product is recognized:
Close this page to return to the installation window.
If this product is not recognized:
Proceed to the next step.
2. Are your computer and the printer correctly connected?
Make sure the USB cable is securely connected to the printer and to your computer and check that the USB cable is not damaged nor badly crimped.
The printer will not be recognized during the driver installation if connected to a printer switch or the printer buffer. If this is the case, try to directly connect the printer to your computer using the USB cable.
If you are connecting the printer to your computer via a USB hub, connect the printer to the first-tier hub from your computer. If the printer driver is still not recognized on your computer, try to directly connect the printer to your computer without the USB hub.
If you are connecting the printer to your computer via a USB hub, make sure the USB hub device is recognized by your computer.
If this product is recognized:
Close this page to return to the installation window.
If this product is not recognized:
Proceed to the next step.
3. Does your computer provide USB or IEEE 1394 support?

My acer aspire one model ZG5 turns on but has a blake screen can i fix it? ia there a way to do it without a usb stick or cd rom?


Your system is not Passing the Power On Self Test or POST and will need to be seen to by a computer technician. He/she will then diagnose the faulty component and then replace it. Claim warranty support if it is available to you.

It could be a loose connection between the RAM modules or actual physical damage at the internal display cable/bus. Some-times these get severed by the hinge.

Test your computer's functionality by connecting a friends computer monitor to the VGA out of your notebook. If it powers on and displays your desktop then the problem lies with either your screen or graphics card, or graphics card connection.

Take care!

Printer USB Cable un recognized DCP150C


You need to isolate the problem. You tried using multiple cables and reinstalled the printer driver several times, but you never mentioned that you tried connecting the printer into another computer. What if the problem is the USB port of the computer and not the printer cable?

Try connecting and installing the problem printer into different computer for testing purpose only. If it work, then the problem is the USB port of the computer. To fix this, try updating the USB driver of your computer.

If same problem occurs using another computer, then you need to contact the manufacturer of your printer. I've heard this problem before and I don't have an update if there's a fix with it.

Have a great day!

HP Printer Usb port in my Acer Laptop , shortcircuits my house


hello

Try using external USB HUB (POWERED) Adapter. It might fix this issue.
Use an other USB cable and see.
If the problem still exist do not plug in the printer again, you may damage your USB port or even burn your laptop motherboard.
hope this helped

How do I connect printer to my notebook?


connect the printer to power, put the usb cable in back of it, but Don't put the other end of usb cable to laptop now.
put the printer On

Now put the Printer Installation CD (which came with the printer) in the computer and install the software & driver.
At the point when it says connect the usb cable to computer, then insert the cable to your laptop's usb slot.

After a while software installation will complete and you can use your Printer.

Let me know if any further clarifications(in that case also let me know the Model of printer)

Recognizes printer, won't print


What i'm getting at is if the printer was not used for a long time the cartridges may have dried out.
