I cant setup my printer to my new computer.

I am trying to connect my hpdeskjet 5552 to my new computer. (Dell XPS1)After inserting the setup disk an error message appears - "cant find SETUPX.DLL" After completing the setup the computer wont recognise or accept the printer.How do I go from there

(Maybe because computer is using windows vista - and setup disk is for windows XP??)

As for scanning, if you have the disk that came with the printer, then insert the Printer disk and stop it from running. Go to My Computer and double click on it. Look for the drive with the Dell disk in it. Right click on it, left click explore. Look for the OCR Folder. In the OCR Folder, there is an Abbyy Folder. right click on setup.exe, that's in the Abbyy Folder and left click run as administrator. This will install the OCR program.

Green light flashing


Do the following.
Remove printer cartridges. Disconnect printer USB cable. Disconnect printer power cord. Inspect printer looking for stuck paper or foreign objects inside printer. Clean the printer contacts to cartridge inside the ink carriage. On computer go to Control Panel >Printers and delete the printer from control panel. Reinstall printer driver. Connect the printer USB to computer when prompted by printer driver setup process. After connecting the printer refit cartridges, load paper and try printing again.

If that does not fix the problem, then there may be a fault.

In that case try ringing Dell support at the number listed on the owner manual and on their website.

Note: If you have misplaced printer driver disk, you can download drivers using the link below:

Printing through wireless


hi,

if you had the printer before using the USB cable. then you changed it to wireless, try the ff:

1. re-insert the CD the came with the box, the cd that you used to install the printer Software to your computer.
2. after inserting the cd, it will give you option "add a device".
3. click on that to install the printer driver for WIRELESS.

note: the reason why you cant print, is mainly because the printer driver you have is still for USB connection. so inorder for you to be able to print, you need to install a printer DRIVER for wireless... That should WORK..
