Your specs say you have 2 USB connections on the front and 4 on the back. I would connect it to the rear USB ports. This User Manual will help: http://www.andovercg.com/datasheets/dell-dimension-1100-b110.pdf

http://support.dell.com/support/systemsinfo/document.aspx?s=dhs&~file=/systems/dim1100/en/sm/specs.htm

Connectors:
USB - two front-panel and four back-panel USB 2.0-compliant connectors

The USB ports on your computer, DO utilize the USB 2.0 technology

Therefore the answer is yes

If they were based on the USB 1.1 technology, the answer would be yes

[NOTE*

DO NOT connect the printer to the computer FIRST!

Put the Installation CD the printer comes with, in the Optical Drive bay. (CD/DVD drive)
Load the software.........

Load ALL the software
(Has more than one 'package', load the largest one)

(When installing the software, L@@K for advertisements with it.
May want you to use the ASK toolbar, or Google toolbar, or McAfee, or whatever.

Click on the boxes next to that Junk, and this will remove the green checkmark. THEN proceed to click on Next )

AFTER all the software is loaded, and if it asks you if you wish to restart your computer; do so.
When Windows has FULLY loaded again, then plug the USB cable from the printer, into one of the computer's USB ports.

THEN turn the printer on..........

Printer will set itself up, and you should get two pop-ups out of your system tray;
"Found new hardware device", plus " Found HP XXXX printer"

Now go into the Start menu, and you will see the new HP printer software added.

IF you connect the printer first, THEN put the printer software in, you will create a Driver Conflict.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

The device is the Printer, what version of Windows operating system was not stated. (Win XP?)

When a device is connected to a computer with Windows, Windows will 'break it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic, one-size-fits-all drivers.

This = No

Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

SOURCE: dell dimension 3000 won't see wireless network

Hi, I've jst been looking on the web at the Mimo routers, you may find this article interesting, it may help even though its a couple of years old?

http://www.behardware.com/articles/614-2/wi-fi-mimo.html

Pay attention to part about 802.11n compatibility?
Perhaps try changing the IEEE standard on the router to 802.11g in the set up pages, as it may be set at 802.11n, which your older wireless card will not see.

As to the acquiring ip address message, try using a static ip address, here's a good guide:-

Maybe this will help?

SOURCE: No high speed usb port

Hi Delvin!

The 2 usb-ports on the front and the 3 back of your Dell is high speed ones, at least the manual says so, they are all USB 2.0.
If you cant get them work properly with the 2.0 usb speed, you can buy an high speed pci add-in- card and install it on your pc.

Here you can read about the "high speed usb" :
http://www.usb.org/developers/usb20/

And here is the manual and avalible drivers for your Dell:

SOURCE: dell dimension 8200 keyboard compatibility- won't

From what I understand you have a compatibility issue with your new keyboard.

Here is what you can do, because it's probably a driver issue.

Youcan check if you are missing drivers by going to Start>(RightClick)My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager. If yousee any drivers that are yellow or with a ! those are the drivers youneed to find, download and install.

Windows Updates ~ When you go to Windows Update, do not "Express"update, rather "Custom" - Once it has loaded the screen, on the lefthand side you will see hardware. Download the hardware drivers there.They work 98% of the time, and Windows Update is pretty good now daysso it might fix your problem easy.
I don't understand the question entirely however.
Does your original keyboard work?
Is the new keyboard the only one not being reconizied?

Try differen USB ports, see if it makes a difference. Also, turn off the PC, and then plug it in. Sometimes the PC has to be restarted/turned off, before you change hardlike like keyboard and mouse or other accessories.

Hope I've been of some assistance!

Hi, to find out if the “Keyboard is compatible with your system?” You can do the following: Shutdown the Computer, connect the Keyboard to your computer. Turn on the computer. If, the “Keyboard have a Power Button?”(Turn on) the keyboard. Go to, Control Panel; click on Device Manager. Click to open Keyboards, in the (Keyboard Properties) Click on Driver (Box), next click to Update Drivers! Click OK. Restart the computer. Check keyboards’ functionality. Thanks paul7of9

How to reset expired hp 02 cartridge


I'm not sure what you mean by "reset" and whether you are speaking of ink jet or laser cartridges. From my experience all HP laser cartridges have a small chip (with a little circuitry) that counts down your pages and when it decides your cartridge is out of toner you cannot "reset" that chip, you can only replace it, so like when you refill the cartridge. Some of the HP laser printers let you override these toner level chips (my HP 1518ni does) but in many laser printers you are stuck when the chip counts down to '0' pages. Some printers will run if you remove the chip from the cartridge but from my experience most will not.
Ink jet cartridges are somewhat similar but I gave up on ink jet printers several years ago. I know for some brands (Epson?) you can buy a small tool that somehow resets the cartridge chip (so if you refill cartridges yourself); possibly there is something similar for HP ink jet cartridges.

How do I load ink and toner in hp laserjet 1100


By load the toner, if you mean inserting the toner cartridge.Then i will give you instructions.In laser toner printer, there is toner cartridge, and not ink jet cartridge.In laser toner cartridges, there is a black color toner power and it does have any liquid ink, which ink jet cartridges have.To remove the laser toner cartridge from hp laser jet 1100 printer, its simple.The front door open and old toner cartridge comes out.Just pull the front door towards you.While inserting cartridge.If you have problem, then take note that, sticker side of the cartridge is towards you.On the cartridge there is a rectangle flap, which you hold in your hand.This is meant for holding the cartridge, while removing and inserting cartridge.The stick side will be in your side.There is a green color drum, the drum side will be on opposite site.-------------- Still any problem.Keep updated.But i think that will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Maryfrancesh

Exerpt taken from Dell Laser 1100 User Manual (p30)

1 Open the front cover.
2 Pull the used toner cartridge out and lift it up and away from the printer.
3 Unpack a new toner cartridge. Hold the cartridge carefully and gently shake it from sideto-
side 5 or 6 times to distribute the toner.
4 Pull the tape to remove the protective paper.
5 Locate the cartridge slot inside the printer, one on each side.
6 Unfold the toner cartridge handle and grasp it. Insert the cartridge into the printer until
it snaps into place.
7 Close the front cover. Make sure that the cover is securely closed. If it is not firmly closed,
printing errors may occur.
