Check the installation instructions of the pc. the problem might be on the printer, since many printers operates on selection OSs such as windows or macintosh. the tip would be, since you cannot use the printer, go back to the retailer and exchange it for another printer that is compatible with linux.

nonetheless, before doing this, make sure that you have followed the instructions on installing the driver's software of the printer.

may I ask what is the brand of the printer? so far, hp printers or fujitsu printers do not entail much problem on linuz operated PCs.

In your printer settings in the printers and devices check to see what port you are trying to attach to. If you are connected to a network printer verify the IP address is correct if you are connecting through USB check to see that you are connecting to the proper USB you can see if there are other USB ports listed and try one at a time until you get a satisfactory print test.

Can I use aprinter with it?

Only in two circumstances.

The tablet has wifi and you have a wireless printer. You connect the tablet to wifi and then use the AirPrint app from the printer maker to connect.

Or if the tablet has a USB socket, download to USB and then either plug direct to the printer or to a computer or laptop.

My original problem of black screen turned out not to be memory sticks, but was motherboard-have new m/board-reading instructions to install-it says I need op cd to install-my acer aspire m5641 desktop...


Welcome to Fixya. The answer to your questions is YES. You need an Operating System CD to and install it on your system. However, if you have the same make and model of the motherboard that has been replaced you dont need to have the Operating System CD. just connect the memory, PSU, Processor, and other components and it will run fine.

If the motherboard make and model is different then you need to have a copy of the Operating System you can check Acer if they can provide it to you or purchase one with Microsoft

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

Trying to connect 3110 printer to toshiba laptop, with windows7. When you add aprinter it finds the printer, but then says can't connect?

Window 7 is the latest computer system on the market and espected to communicate with any peripheral devices. The printer may not be as up to date with the computer making incompartibility issues. Sometimes the new computer may require a new recently inonvated printer. Observe the printers models may have been incompartble because the software codes that links the gap i simple uninstallable with windows 7. Consult with the computer technicians to attempt an alternate methods to achievign networking. perhaps connecting to another compuer with the printer or acquring a new printer or downgrading the computers softwares to attain compartibility.

Is there any way i can connect a HP Deskjet 1600 printer to an acer aspire one netbook?

Assuming the HP printer has a cable with a USB plug on the end of it, then yes you can.
If you are connected to the internet, then Windows (XP or Vista or Windows 7, or whatever operating system you are using) will find the printer (once it is turned on and plugged into your laptop) and it will usually ask you for the printer driver which is on a CD ROM that came with your printer, or failing that it will ask if Windows can go onto the internet and search for the correct printer driver.
If the Acer netbook doesn't find a driver, go to the HP website and download the drivers for that specific printer (ie Deskjet 1600) ensuring you get the drivers for the specific operating system the netbook is using ie get the Vista driver from HP if that is what the netbook is using. Or, get the Windows 7 driver if that is the op system you are using.
Give it a whirl, its not a tough thing to do.
Good luck,

Test your cable elsewhere and see if it works, if okay, use another port in your computer.That should solve it otherwise replace your printer card in your printer.
