There are two types of slots USB and Parallel ports. You probably have a USB, it should be a small rectangular head, with no holes or pins. You will find a matching slot on the side of the laptop. But that's not the last step as you have to run the disc that came with the printer to install it on the laptop. You will not be able to use the printer until that is done, unless it was added at an earlier date. If you have any questions let me know.

Wireless toshiba laptop not connecting


You didn't mention your model number for your printer. On your printer, go to settings and print your wireless specifications page. Your printer IP will be there.
You can also have your computer search for your printer!

Desktop computer windows xp...sons laptop windows 7 ..wireless router....same internete signal...can his laptop find my printer..or do i need to run same cd on my sons laptop..to get it to install on...


Hi,

Yes it is possible, you have to install the pritner software on your Sons laptop.

1) For sharing, if you have a network printer connected to your router, then select the network option while installing the printer (If you would have given us the printer model and make we could have given step by step instructions).

2) If the printer is connected to your XP computer and you want to share it, share the printer from XP as mentioned in the steps below.

>> Open Printers and Faxes. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Printers and Faxes.
>> Right-click the printer you want to share, and then click Sharing.
>> On the Sharing tab, click Share this printer and then type a share name for the shared printer (e.g. MyPrinter), click on Apply and Ok. (as shown below)

Now goto the Windows 7 laptop and follow the steps as mentioned below,

>> Click Start >> Click on Devices and Printers >> Click on Add Printer (as shown below)

>> A new window will come up, click on Add a network printer (as shown below)

>> The laptop will search the network for the printer and display it on the list, click on the printer and click on next. The laptop will install the software required, do ensure the printer installation disc is in the laptop in case if Windows 7 wont have the driver it will take it from the disc.

Regards,
Shrey

Yes you need to setup the printer as a shared printer using the printer driver CD.
Your shared printer and computer would need to be on your LAN and connected to a wireless router. The laptop will connect to the shares printer via the wireless router and LAN cable to the computer with the shared printer.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions to setup the shared printer.

Open Control Panel, Printers and faxes. Check if there is icon for your printer. If not, you have to install the driver using CD that comes with the printer.
Blue screen often means very badly broken windows installation and your vendor probably reinstalled it as new installation. Therefore your printer may not be installed.

I dont know where the Dell 725 Printer Power Cord goes into the tower Which outlet on the tower


The Dell 725 printer power cord does NOT plug in to the tower. The Video Cable, on the other hand, plugs in to the tower's video output. Look for a connector like the one from the printer (often USB these days) to plug it in to the computer. There was a diagram that came with the computer that showed how to do all the connections, and the Power Cord does NOT plug in to the tower. USB connections are in various locations on your computer's tower, in the back and sometimes in the front too.

Wireless and wired connection fails with Toshiba laptop


Do you have a firewall turned on that might be preventing your computer from communicating with the printer properly?
