Newer computers have wirless connection or blue tooth capability's. try and find out by contacting the people you bought the computer from to see if yours has this capability. before you buy anything.

Newer printers will have a usb connection so u will need to buy a usb cable to connet between your laptop and theb printer. Alternatively, if your printer is old and doesn't support usb then you will need to buy a parrallel port to usb adapter to allow you to print from your laptop. With printers so cheap these days its actually more economical for you to buy a new printer rather than the adapter.

the only other way to do it is to connect your printer to another computer and share that printer over the network and then you can install that printer on your laptop as a network printer and therefore print from your laptop.

good luck

    hey there..

    i looked into this..your laptop came out i n 2002 its 6 yo way before usb2 came out. i also checked on the specs here

    http://www.ciao.co.uk/Compaq_Presario_70...

    it says u have 2 usb ports but they are 4 pins which means they use the smaller usb type. you will need to buy a cable with the 4pin usb one end and the other end needs to fit into your printer then it should work.

    your only problem is that your printer may not support usb1 (although it should) it wiill be slow.

    good luck i hope i get my fixya rating :)

How installing ink compaq A 1000


Hello,

Have you try to use another charger to charge it to see if it will charge, because it could be that your charger is bad, if you have and it did not charge, no problem.

It means the charging port of your phone is bad that is why your phone is not charging.

All you need to do is to change the charging port of your phone, changing the charging port of your phone will make your phone charge because the one there at the moment is bad.

Change the charging port and you will see that your phone will charge.

Take care.

I cant print with my lexmark printer, it is a type x2480 every time i go to print it wants me to set up a fax line please help me


Check your printer properties to make sure it is set to print using the proper port. If it is set to 'print to fax' it will attempt to install a fax line every time you try to print. It should be set to your LPT (printer) port or your USB port, depending on how you have it connected to your computer.

HP LaserJet II p Plus will not print


Hi,

I am assuming that you are using Vista. Based on your post/description:
1. the HP Compaq 6710b has no parallel port;
2. the HP LaserJet IIP Plus is only capable of either serial or parallel connection;
3. hence you're attempting a USB to Parallel interface;
4. the printer is installed in your notebook and is set to USB port;
5. from the printer a test print can be performed but not from the Printer Properties in your notebook;
6. all printing jobs initiated from the notebook results in an "Error".

With the above in mind, may I point/suggest that:
a. Windows Vista driver will only enable your HP LaserJet IIP Plus' basic functions to work. It is not 100% compatible;
b. alternately, you can try using the XP installation CD/drivers of the printer;
c. the compatibility issue may be compounded by the USB to parallel interface;
d. the USB to parallel interface may be hampered by a known Vista USB issue;
e. you can try patching/updating the Vista USB driver. Since this has been a recognized issue with Vista, Microsoft has posted a fix for this here or here.
f. verify that the printer does not display a 22 or 40 Error.

If the printing concern has not been rectified after completion of the above procedures, you may need to:
i. download and install HP Universal PostScript Print Driver; or
ii. consider using a wireless print server connected to the parallel port of the printer; or
iii.consider replacing your printer. Sorry.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Bought used hp all in one 6110 will not print


What I would try is:

1. From Control Panel > Printers... uninstall all printers that are there.

2. Unplug the printer from the port.

3. Get the Vista drivers from HP's site.

4. Install the drivers.

5. Plug the printer back into the usb port. The printer need to be ON, btw.

6. Check the Control Panel and confirm that the printer is there and is check as the default.

I had a ghost copy of my HP in the control panel and my applications were trying to print to it, all that did was put documents in the Print Que.


Good luck!
