C4180 all in one printer.When I boot the computer & the printer’s on, we can’t get a monitor screen. It’s black & unresponsive. I turn off the printer the computer boots up with a screen, then we can turn on the printer & all is well. Is there someone else who has had this problem & is there a setting or fix that I can download. Thanks

The easiest thing to do is find another monitor to plug in to determine if it is the monitor or the computer. Just because something has been stored does not mean that something fried the first time you plugged it back in. LCD monitors are notorious for having bad capacitors.
Install the software on the laptop first and when it asks to connect the device, continue without connecting. Once finished, ensure the printer on the desktop is being shared in the printers folder. Then on the laptop add a device and search the network. If your 2 computers have the network established it should see it.
jst try deleting the printer icon from the printers window under the control panel,if it shows deleting,unplug the printer,restart your computer and then try deleting it again.it should go off,then plug the printer back in,and follow the on screen instructions.
if it is still not working then delete it from the device manager>usb composite device .it should delete the drivers,then plug the printer back in after restarting and follow the instructions.
Click on Start> Settings/Control Panel> Printers and faxes> Right click on the default printer icon and left click on Properties> under properties you will see Printing references> there you see a option to use black cartridges only select it and apply and ok.
And try to print.
If not whenever you ptint any document you will see the printer where you can make selection of printers, even there you can right click on the printer and choose to print only in black.
