Go to add a printer and tell it you want to add a local printer. It will probably fail. You will then have to select the manufacture and the model or browse to where the drivers are installed.

My computer wont start up. The power supply light flashes green when plugged in then red. But still nothing , can someone please help?


Try a Power Supply Unit (PSU) Reset: Unplug the electrical cable from the wall and the PSU (Back of Computer)
Move the red voltage selector to the opposite position it is in and then slide it back. If you live in the USA 120Vac to 220Vac back to 120Vac
After you have done this you can plug the power cable back into the PSU. Connect the power cable to the wall power. If the PSU is still serviceable it will no longer be blinking.

My printer won't print due to the fact that the troubleshoot says I'm not connected to a computer....but I am. How do I download a new driver to make it work. thanx


Hello Sir, Hi, that is common error with printers today, but this error can be fixed, here are some of the thing you need to do, they may help.
for usb interface. 1. If you are using a USB interface, you need to install first the driver software, along the setup, you will be prompted to power on the printer and plug in the USB cable to your computer and the printer. make your connection here. If the connection fails, do this several times. 2. If the 1. fails try using another USB port.
for centronics parallel printer cable. 1. Make the connection of the printer to the computer before installing the driver software. 2. Power on the printer. 3. Power on the computer and install the driver CD.
If you do not have the driver cd and you did not mention what printer you have. do a Google search, type the printer make and model and search for the driver. download the driver, usually from the manufacturer's website.

My computer will not turn on anymore


Try connecting the power-cord to a different wall-plug.

Look on the back for a "rocker" switch.
Flip it to the other side, and try the ON/OFF button.
If nothing, flip it back.

Open the case, and look for any small lamp on the motherboard.
If it is not lit, then the motherboard is not getting any power from the power-supply. Try a different power-supply.

Open the case, and look at the wires coming from the back of the front-panel to the motherboard. Look for any loose or non-connected wires. If one pair of "loose" wires is labelled 'POWER SW(itch)', then reconnect it to the appropriately-labelled pins on the motherboard.

If all else fails, take the computer to a qualified technician, for "hands-on" trouble-shooting.

I have a dell optiplex gx620 and it wont turn on all it does is the power button flashes orange.


As you can imagine, this is not simple thing to diagnose.
First, we need to try Dell's steps to fix...
Remove non-essential peripherals…
Except for the monitor, keyboard, and mouse, remove all external peripherals including:
  • Scanner
  • Printer
  • Modem or Network cables
  • Personal Digital Assistant (PDA)
  • USB flash drive or other external Hard Drive
  • Any other external devices (e.g., USB-attached devices)
  • Remove the computer from the docking station, if you are using one

Try rebooting. If that doesn’t work, Dell states you need to do the next step.
Remove and Reseat Basic Hardware items:
  1. Power Cord
  2. Memory
  3. Hard Drive
At this point, Dells says if that fails contact them.

If my hunch is correct, you may have something on the motherboard shorting a connection or you have a blown capacitor. Get some “canned air” and blow out the computer thoroughly. Some people have reported the same symptom having dust or other debris causing the issue, so give it a good blowing out,

At the same time, inspect your motherboard thoroughly for an anomalies. If you see anything resembling the picture below, you have a serious motherboard problem which will require replacement.

Dear Sir:

It seems that the printer has gone bad because when you get this message 'USB Device not recognized' it means that the usb device connected to the computer is defective however I would suggest you to connect this device to another computer and if you are getting the same error with the other computer.

Pleomax 6gb USB Drive No Longer Recognized by My Computers


It's either the USB port, the drive electronics itself, or the USB cable.

First I'd try a different USB cable.

Hi Bob,

Just try resetting the BIOS and check if it works.

You need to access BIOS screen and most of the computers has F% key is assigned for Loading the Dedault Settings. After F5 key you need to press the F10 key to save the settings and exit from the BIOS.

Hope this helps!
