Re: I can't get printer hooked up properly to usb in...
Unless there is something wrong with your hub, you should be able to plug into any of the 3 ports. If that fails, try temporarily plugging directly into your PC and see if the problem goes away. If so, the hub may not work for you. If not, try a different USB cable.

Your printer came with a USB to mini USB cord. The mini end plugs into the back of the printer and the USB into any USB port on the back of your computer tower. The computer will recognize new hardware and walk you through install. murf427
lower right hand toolbar: click on safely remove harware and disconnect the printer from your tower. With HP's you have to download the software first during this download it will tell you when to turn on the printer then plug it into the usb port. if you don't have the software disc you can download it from hpdownloads.com
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.
You have to remove the rear right panel located on the right rear of the machine. When you remove the panel you will see the following.
3. Power cord connection
4. Power switch
5. Parallel port connection (8400 series only)
6. USB connection
7. Configuration card
8. Ethernet 10/100 Base-T connection.
Hope this helps

Does it have a large wide plug with lots of little prongs or a small one? If it is a large one, there will only be one place that it will fit on your tower and it will screw down. If it is a small one you can plug it into a USB port that has a little symbol on it to match your symbol either on the front or back of the tower.
