Set-up won't recognize that the USB cable is connected to both printer and computer and therefore printer won't work. What's up with that??

1. Confirm the USB port on the computer you are connecting your printer to is being recognized by your computer. The easiest way to do this would be to plug a known good USB Memory stick into the USB port you want to use. If you can read the contents of the USB Memory stick then the port should work. Remove the Memory stick, start the printer installation program (Make sure you don't the printer connected), want until the setup program tells you to connect the printer before you attach the Printer's USB cable.
If the printer isn't recognized try a different USB port, when picking a new USB port to try select a higher priority port, for example in increasing priority from, an external USB hub, a powered external hub, a monitor based hub, USB ports on the front of the computer, up to the USB ports at the computer rear. For USB ports on the same circuit select an USB 2.0 before an USB 3.0 port

My computer cannot recognised a usb

A better description of the issue would help a lot, but...
If you've verified the device you are plugging into a usb port works in another computer, then here's some basic things you can try:
- Ensure plug and play service is enabled.
- Remove any usb software listed in add/remove programs or 'programs and features'.
- Ensure the usb ports are enabled in BIOS, obtain motherboard or OEM manual/support for this.
- If it's not working, but did and you upgraded your operating system, obtain your windows updates, if still not working uninstall drivers from device manager, restart your computer.

My printer does not startup...

Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

My printer Lexmark 7100 series (all in one) X7170 don't print from a DOS accounting program. The accounting manual tell me that it is necessary I enter the "Printer Control Codes" in order to...

Looks like your Lexmark is a GDI (AKA Windows-Only) printer, as no "emulation" or "control codes support" is listed at

You may want to have a look at Printfil to enable your DOS program printing to Windows printers, including GDI and virtual printers.

Re setup

ok depending on how you have installed it, normally the software/installation cd has to be installed first, so remove the printer and start again, the .inf file it is looking for is the driver file, but the cdrom should firstly set this up when installed, only then the printer can be attached. If you have to connect the printer first, then you will have to force windows to look in the cdrom drive for the files to install the driver as it may be looking in 'C' where windows is installed instead. The usb hub you have will probably be a usb1.1, but your printer will prefer usb2, so try it in other usb ports, that you haven't got the hub connected into, remove any other hardware that is connected to your usb ports at rear of pc and connect them to the hub instead, as one of the used ports may be usb2. Having said that your printer does not have to have usb2.0 to function, using the usb1.1data rate is just slower than usb2.0
