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 :)

Pc won't accept printer via usb connection


So why won't it accept the printer? Is the printer and your operating system on the computer compatible? Did you install the printer and drivers? Are you sure the USB Port works?
Have you tried a different USB Port?

Click Start/Control Panel and look for Printers. Open it and make sure you don't have more than one instance of the printer installed. If you do, then you're confusing the computer. You can also check to see if more than one of the same printer is installed by opening a word document, then click File, then Print, and when the print window opens up click the Down Arrow on the line that shows the printer name. This will show you all other installed printers.

Start the simple route: uninstall and reinstall the printer and its software. If the software is old, head to the printer manufacturer's website and download the latest driver package.
Meanwhile, track back to when the print spooler worked successfully. Was there any new software installed that may have caused the problem? A possible update from Windows, perhaps?

Samsung ML-4500 with IEEE 1284 to usb cable not working


Windows XP/VISTA (do not install the CD)
1) Plug the cable into the USB port on your computer.
2) A prompt that says "Found New Hardware" will appear. Windows will then install the USB printing support driver automatically. You do not need to install the driver from the CD.
3) Plug the cable into the printer.
4) If your printer is already installed, click on Start, then Printers & Faxes. Right click on the printer you are connecting to and click on Properties. Click on the Ports tab and check the ‘Virtual printer port for USB’ port. Click OK.
5) You should now be able to print.

With XP, the biggest clue is to FIRST plug the cable into the usb slot, THEN the other end of the cable into the printer.

There should be a PCMCIA port on the left side under the keyboard. You may have to eject the plastic spacer from the slot. the eject button is to the left of the slot.
