I don't think your printer has USB capabilities.

You need a USB to Centronics Printer Cable.

Can you print with just the black ink installed?

No, all cartridges, even if they are empty, have to be present at all times.

How to hookup a hp deskjet 2480 printer

Lets think about this for a second:

How do you install the software (drivers, actually) when you dont have the CD?

You go to the manufacturers website and download them to your computer. Make sure you get the driver for the OPERATING SYSTEM you are using on your computer.

How do you connect a printer without a USB cord?

Is your printer 'wireless' or 'bluetooth'? If no, and there is no special HP cord and no parallel port, you cannot connect it. If it requires a wire, it REQUIRES a wire.

Ok, maybe you don't have one - most printers do not come with an appropriate cable. In this case, get one. They are available where ever computer supplies are sold. You ask for a USB Printer Cable. Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, Best Buy, Radio Shack, other Big Box store, Joe Blow's computer repair shop. Don't have any such in your area, look at the advertisers here at You could always go back to the place you bought your printer and get one from them.

The 64 $ question is this: Is your new printer compatable with the Operating System on your computer? ... and how do you know this? Search "microsoft compatability list for (insert the name of your OS)". If your printer is listed by make and model for your OS, that means MS is supporting the printer. If it is NOT listed, MS is NOT supporting the printer, in which case you must go to or to look for a driver for your OS (NOT for your computer model, necessarily). If one is listed, you should get it. If none is listed, Dell will not support this printer when used by your OS. In this case, you are probably at the end of the road, though there is occasionally a driver available for some printers from third party developers.

Your computer tells you there is no Internet Explorer. Did you use the Windows Search function to look for this program? Start - Search - enter 'Internet Explorer'. When you find it, click on it and see what happens. There is a very good possibility that your short cut is no good. If that is the case, (you will know if the program shows up and runs) create a new shortcut. If it is not there, hopefully your computer is on a network and you can download the program from a variety of sources directly to the computer with no IE. If IE runs but tells you it is off line, click TOOLS, OPTIONS, unclick "work offline". Then try again.

There is no recognition of the USB cord but it is there. You see it, obviously, but the computer cant see it. Guess what, doesn't make any difference if you see it. Replace the cord. FYI, there is USB 1, USB 2 and USB 3 is waiting to be introduced. Which one do you have? Which one does your printer require?

I trust you will find these responses will address your issues and solve your trouble. If you need more assistance, please post a comment to this quesiton.

Thank you for your interest in

I hit print & the paper runs through but nothing printed. Is there a way to check ink.

I suggest that you go to HP website, download latest version of your printer driver. Install it. It sounds like your printer driver is having issues...possibly partly overwritten by other software?!?!

I want to connect my Dell inspiron 1525 laptop (basic vista)to HP 7550 printer. What type of usb cord do I need, and are drivers available online?

Assuming this is a Photosmart 7550 printer and not the 7550 Plotter, this is what you will need for connectivity. To connect printer to PC, you will need a standard USB A/B cable... one side is a male A connector and the other one a male B connector. As far as the drivers are concerned, you will not need to download any. Vista already has a compatible driver for your HP Photosmart 7550. HP recommends selecting the drivers for the Deskjet 5550 when installing your Photosmart 7550.

This is the resume button. If it is blinking and the power light is steady and if just installed a print cartridge, make sure the cartridge is securely snapped into the printer with the arrow aligned with the dots on the top of the printer cartridge cradle.
Close the top cover of the printer if it is open.
Check the lower (IN) tray to make sure it contains paper and that the paper is correctly loaded in the tray.
Press resume to clear the error condition. Then check your computer screen for any reported error message and corrective action instructions.
If the resume and power lights are blinking - press the power button to turn off the printer. At the computer, cancel any documents awaiting printing. Then press power button again to turn on computer. Good luck from Lady Isobel.
