The printers have a common cable, called a to b. The box end plugs into the back, or side, of your printer...there is only one place to plug that end in, and you cannot do it wrong. The other end is called a usb connector, and it will plug in to the back of your computer...again, you cannot plug it in wrong...it will only go in one way. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: I MOVED FROM GA TO AZ AND HAD MY COMPAQ SHIPPED

It can be intimidating when looking at a huge mass of wires and stuff, but not to worry, it may be a little time consuming, but is is all logical.
First set the monitor on the desk and plug it in to the wall. then take the second cable that has a million little prongs sticking out of the retangular plug and hang it to where the Case is going to sit. Put the case where you want it close to or on the desk. look at the back of the case, the cable that is coming from the monitor can only fit 1 socket in the back of the pc.
Now, 10% done!!! that wasn't hard!
Now put the mouse and keyboard on the desk and thread the cords through the back of the desk to the pc. Usually, the pc has two sockets right next to each other right on the top of the case in back, that are round and the size of a dime. That is where the keyboard and mouse plug in. Look at the back of the pc for color coding of plug color to socket color or look for pictures of which cable goes in which socket.
Ok, now find the big thick black cable that plugs into the wall and ends in a big thick square. Plug it into the power supply of the pc. It only fits one place.
Plug it into the wall now.
Now all you should have is speakers and a printer.
Look at the speakers, Depending if they are standard, or 5.1 dolby surround, they either have 1 or 3 plugs that go into the pc. Plug the speakers into the wall, then look at the back of the pc for 3 small holes. one should be labled, speakers. There is line in and microphone as well. plug in the speakers...... ,
Ok, printer, funky thick plug, or usb cable..... Either one, look at the back of the pc, it only goes in one spot!!
TADA

Now, you need to plug in the internet stuff. plug the router to the walll, connect to phone line or cable, then plug in the cable that looks like a big (usually yellow) phone cable. Plug it into the network card plug on the back of the pc.

Surf, have fun.
PLEASE VOTE 4 THUMBS FOR ME!!!!!!
Good luck and have fun.
James.

SOURCE: it turns into blue screen

Its probably saying memory dump and the countdown. This is mostly encountered after some kinda change on the pc. It can be new hardware, software or just plain windows update. Lots of times it ends up being a corrupt driver. Try to boot in to safe mode and see doe sit still do same thing. if not than you know it is software related and you can do system restore. To boot in to safe mode on reboot keep on tapping key F8 and choose safe mode. Once in safe mode if it works go to start, all programs, accessories, system tools and choose system recovery. choose like a week back and click next and this will do a restore to when pc was working, fine. If you cant boot into safe mode it is possible it has issues with hardware and this should be checked out by a pc repair shop. Another option you can try if same mode dont work try to do same thing on boot keep on tapping key F8 and instead choosing safe mode try choosing Last Known Good Configuration. this is similar to restore. Hope this helps.

Not an driver problem. Your front USB ports cable not connected with motherboard. Connect the cable in USB jack in the motherboard. Some time no cable inside the cabinet, in case buy new cable and connect it.

The cords are all plugged in and computer and printer is on but it wont scan, the computer cannot make a connection to the printer? there is no damage parts or wires.


Check and see if there is a lock button for the scanner,some printers have this feature so that during transportation or moving you can lock the scanner so it doesnt move to keep it from getting damaged,if that is not the issue then i would uninstall the software,restart the pc and then reload the software and make sure to follow the instructions on installing it to the detail.With usb devices you dont plug the usb cable in until it tells you to during setup,thats important,most printers are like that when installing,so if you installed the software with with the usb cable already plugged in then that can be your problem.Make sure your operating system is compatible with the printer such as winxp,vista,win7.good luck

Need what type of printer cable to fix to the compaq laptop from Epson Stylus C86 so i can print from laptop


You can use USB or Parallel according to the user guide. Most laptops made recently wont have a parallel port and the cables are harder to find so I recommend USB.

I dont know how to plug the printer into the computer?


MP460 uses a USB cable if you get one (they are cheap) there should be a port on the back of your computer for it and with your printer switched on power up your computer and your computer should detect the printer. However if you have no USB port then you need either a new computer or an old printer that uses an old style port!

Lost setup instructions in office move.(large sheet showing Windows/Mackintosh options).


go to http://www.hp.com and put in the model number of your printer in under the support and drivers section of the website. If the printer us USB type, load the drivers of the printer before connecting the USB cable. The software will tell you when to plug in the USB cable from the printer to the computer. Don't plug your USB cable in first.

Hope that helps.
Good luck!

This is the start of the fun with vista. I gives the error message "known compatibility issues" with any none MS software. It does give you the option to install anyway. Do this before plugging in the printer or vista will install it's own driver and it wont work.
the software will tell you when it is safe to plug in the printer.

you can get the vista driver @:

Connecting my new PIXMA MX700 to my computer


Please read your owners manual.

It's very simple to connect a printer, and ever simpler to read the part of the manual that tells you how.

Perhaps you should get a friend to help you. If I say "Power Cord" and "USB Cable" will you know the difference? If not, I probably couldn't explain it to you through type.

If you think you could tell them apart, then do this:

1. Make sure you have a USB cable. Most printers don't come with a cable to connect to a computer. If yours did, you'll have two cables in the box. The USB and the Power cables.
If you don't have a USB cable, you'll have to go buy one.

2. Put the CD into your CD ROM drive, follow the instructions. When the computer tells you to, plug your USB cable into the back of the printer and the computer. Plug the power into the printer. Turn the printer ON.

The computer should detect the printer. Follow the instructions on the computer screen.

That should be all there is to it.

My MP500 has a normal flat USB plug in.  Turn off your printer and just try plugging in a normal USB cable into that slot...You can use the printer cable if you want. Haven't rec'd the BU20 yet, but don't think it will be a problem.

Dear Shiona, Uninstall the printer from your computer, and use new usb cable, install the cable in other usb port and then turn on the computer. Go to the "Add new printer" option from the control panel-printer. and install the driver properly.
