Wireless Dell laptop can't 'find' HPDeskjet 5150 Printer

Am not very clued into computers but the guy who has been installing Vista onto my Dell laptop can't get it to recognise and print onto my hp Deskjet 5150 printer. This particular model does not come up in this list offers by my Dell but he's been using the closest to it hp Deskjet 5100.

    Thanks for your reply, I understand upto the bit about checking the connection using USB cable but didn't understand how to check the Router and all the info thereafter. Sorry, as said, not clued into computers! Any chance you can translate the solution into lay man's terms?

This printer is (as per HP specs) only connected via USB or Wlan Print server.
Check connection using USB cable and be sure Printer driver are correctly working.
Check on Router your Print server IP address (Lock it out of DHCP)
Put both PRT and PC on same home network (normally HOME or MSWORK)
Put Printer server IP address into your printer properties/port tab/ IP.
OR check if you see your printer server in your Windows network/home network

I have a dell Inspiron D530S computer with Windows Vista. I keep getting a alert that say's that I have Low disk Space on my Recovery D.How do I clean out this Recvery D program and restore it back to...


The alert is a notification that your Hard Disk(HDD) space is almost fill up. You should not remove or delete the "Recovery D Program"! , if you do not have any copy of Recovery CD, just in case of emegency if your PC/Laptop have any booting problems. Dell embedded the "Recovery D" because they do not give you any "Recovery Disk" in a CD/DVD form nowdays. On the safe side make a copy of the recovery disk.

Options you can do is to reduce you data on the HDD, by
1. You can uninstall programs you don't use.
2. Transfer your data to another external media

Alternatively you can upgrade your PC/Laptop with a bigger capacity HDD, and fresh install Windows on it.

Install back up cd's


Data is just data.

If your laptop is working correctly, then just insert the CD, and copy files from the CD onto the hard-drive.

If you created "system-restore" CDs, they can be used only to "restore" the factory-setup on the SAME computer, not a different computer, i.e., your laptop.

My programs will not run


Your computer might be infected with a virus. Have it scanned by an updated antivirus. If problem persists, check the programs you try to open, they might be corrupted.

You need to install the drivers for all those devices. Which you will get from the HP Website but the problem you may have is that this laptop was only available with Vista so there may not be any drivers available to XP.
