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

This printer is not a wireless rpinter, so I guess you were trying to attach it to a print server of some type.

Try using these Recommended Wireless Router Settings,I use channel 11. I would make a new SSID to make connecting easier.

If your computer came with Windows 7, then follow the procedure below. If you upgraded your computer, the did you install the chipset drivers first. If using a Dell Computer that was upgraded, the desktop/notebook system utility and the chipset drivers need installed first or the rest of the drivers will fail to install. How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order

First run Delete Print Jobs to remove any stuck print job in the queue.

Disconnect the printer.

Download and run the patch(printer cleanup utility) until it prompts you to restart your computer.

Restart your computer. Make sure the printer is removed.
Manual Printer Driver Removal

Download the Vista 32-bit drivers for Windows 7 32-bit or the Vista 64-bit drivers for Windows 7 64-bit. Install the Vista drivers in the Vista
Compatibility mode You'll get a message, the printer is not connected. Connect the printer at this time(powered on).

Links to the patch/drivers can be found at...

I got a new dell laptop and installed windows home edition and when i went to use it the wifi/wireless drivers were not installed how do i get them to be installed for a dell latitude d610 laptop?


Re-install the Operating System that was "factory-installed" onto the computer (Vista? 7?), and the correct device-drivers will be loaded.

You probably have "abandoned" other "ancient" Microsoft products (Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000), and now it's time for you to get used to Microsoft's newest Operating Systems, namely Vista and/or 7.
