    Since I posted that message I discovered that the usb was the problem and it would cost too much to have it replaced because it is connected to the motherboard. So have changed the laptop to a newer one and it works fine. thanks

How do I connect my DELL Inspiron 3521 laptop to the HP Photosmart D110 Printer? The laptop is not recognizing the Printer. Whenever we try to download printer software, it says "System Driver cannot...


First of all, what is your Operating System? XP? Windows 7? Windows 8? Are you connecting via Wireless or USB? Is your system 32-bit or 64-bit? If connecting via USB, try different USB ports on the laptop and a different USB cord just to be sure. If you can get into your laptops Device Manager you can go under Action and tell it to scan for hardware changes while the printer is attached to the laptop. Windows 7 & 8 usually have decent Plug and Play features and may pick up the driver.
Are you getting the driver from HP directly? If so, make sure you are matching the Operating system exactly (ex. Windows 8 64-bit/Windows 7 32-bit). You can discover your system type by right clicking on the Computer icon and going to properties. You may also want to try an HP Universal PCL 6 driver if the driver for the actual printer will not download. Save the driver to the desktop or a designated file within the C drive in case your temp folder is corrupt and run it from the local save.
There could be other issues, such as a 3rd party firewall blocking the driver or the Anti-Virus could be an issue as well.
I hope this helps!

External device (cd/dvd device) connected via USB cable is one way to do it ... download over a network (including the internet) is another method, if it has a serial port, this is another avenue you could try if you have the expertise ... peer to peer direct connection to another computer through the NIC is an option.

Booting with External DVD for Dell Inspiron 1525


Power on your system, Press F2 on Dell logo. This would take you to system BIOS. Ensure that USB controller is ON, and USB emulation is also set to ON. Save settings and Exit. System would reboot now. Press F12 on Dell logo, and select USB ROM as the boot device. This should boot your computer through your External drive. If it still doesnt work, try switching to a different USB port. If none of these steps work, it may be a problem with the boot sector on your External drive.

Good Luck!

Printer only runs with usb,


If you're trying to run your USB printer over a wireless connection, a USB device server like the Silex SX2000U2 will connect to your USB printer, then provide a wired network connection that you can connect to your wireless access point. Belkin also has a "USB Network Hub" that does the same.

This will make the printer available on your network and you can print to it from another computer wired or wirelessly.
