Specs for your computer

This is a wired printer, not a wireless printer, so it must be connected to the laptop.

  • There are up to three ways to set up your printer. You will need one of these three cables: USB, RJ-45, or parallel.

Next step

The cable you use connects to the computer

Next step

  • Turn your PC on, if it isn’t already.
  • Connect the cable you are using to the back of your computer or server here.

  • Next step

    • If the "Found New Hardware" wizard pops up on your screen, close it.

    Next step
    • Make sure paper is in the paper feed tray and the paper extender at the top is fully extended.

    Next step

    • Insert the software CD that came with your printer.

    Next step
    • The software should auto-run on your computer. If not, choose My Computer and navigate to the optical drive to start the software yourself.
    • Follow the instructions in the software and click OK and Next when prompted.

    Next step

    • Print a test page to see how your printer is doing.

    Now please read this:

    After everything above is done, MAKE SURE THE PRINTER IS ON!!!

    If you are running XP or Vista

    Click Start
    Right click Computer
    Click Properties
    Click Device Manager
    In the Device Manager make sure you do not see any yellow ! points

    Now in the Device Manager
    click on Imaging Devices---do you see your printer; IT SHOULD SHOW THE PRINTER NAME

    Now click the Portable Devices
    Do you see the printer ---- IT SHOULD SHOW THE PRINTER NAME


    For all intense and purposes, if you loaded the right drivers, the printer should run fine.

    One other thing you can do is run Windows updates to see if it sends you any updates for your printer----
    In XP click custom
    In Vista it will automatically show you all the updates

    Any more questions, contact me.
    Please rate this advice. Thanks so much!"

    If i need to reinstall a windows bios to an inspirion 1720 do i have to reinstall vista or can i install windows 7

    Wipe the hard drive and do the OS install. If your unit came with Vista and you install Win 7 there may be some driver incompatibility. Check that out to be on safe side.

    Hp dc5800 recovery cd lost ibought new hd how could i make new recovery partition in the new hd?

    There isn't any way to build a new recovery partition on a new empty hard drive. The recovery partition is put on when the drive is imaged at the manufacturer, but you don't have any source to copy from. If you don't have a recovery disc set, you have two options. The first option is to see if HP sells a recovery disc for your computer. It's unlikely, and expensive if they do have them available.

    The second option is to do a fresh installation of Windows yourself. This is a little more work, but it's not difficult. You'll need a copy of Windows, the same version that came installed on the computer. (For a Vista machine, you just need the "Anytime Upgrade" DVD, which has all the Vista versions on it.) You'll also need to download any hardware drivers needed from HP's website. The installation is mostly automatic; you just need to enter the product key at some point, and you'll find that on the Windows sticker on the computer case. After Windows is done installing, install the hardware drivers and activate Windows. (When the recovery partition or a restore disc is used, the activation is automatic.)

    Installed new HD into Dell 1720 Inspiron after getting the 0146 errr code. Once I installed the HD I began the installation of Vista. It almost finished then the screen went back with the cursor...

    you need to format the hdd first before you can successfully install Vista.

    try booting from cd/dvd by pressing F12 on the Dell screen.

    - Select optical disk drive dvd/cdrw and press Enter
    - Press Any key to boot from CD or keep tapping the spacebar.
    - If you see Windows Setup EMS enbaled, press Enter.
    - Keep clicking next until you are asked "Where do you want to install windows?"
    - Click Drive options Advance
    - Click or select to highlight the partition to where you want to install Vista
    - on that same windows, click "Delete" and OK
    - Click "NEW" and then click "Apply"
    - Click "Format" and then "OK"
    - After that, you may now click "Next"
    Now windows vista should be installed in your computer and on its last boot, it will ask you to create a profile (username and password).

    Acer3690 windows vista wont start back up

    If Vista came installed on the computer originally you should be able to just run a system recovery (either from the had drive or from recovery discs made after buying the computer). When turning on the computer press Alt+F10 to start the recovery process. If you get a loading bar with "Loading Windows Files" above it then you're on the right track. It will allow you to reinstall windows Vista and will also install all the drivers you need.

    If you can't get the Alt+F10 to work and don't have the recovery discs then you will either need to contact Acer and get a sent shipped to you, or find someone with a set of OEM discs that can reinstall it for you.

    Hope that helps :)
