I'll need a bit more info, like the brand and model of the printer, and exactly what your issue is. Do you not know how to go about connecting it to your system, or is your computer not finding the printer as being connected? Or does it find the printer and not have the proper driver to operate it?

Lost disc and would like to add printer to new computer?


simply go to the manufacturers web site and under the support section go to software and driver downloads ... download the driver package and follow the instructions supplied. Most printers require the software to be installed before hooking up the printer cable

I need a usb cable to hook up my new Lexmark 5000 to a dell modeum. where can i get the cable with the right ends on it?


My best bet is you would have to call a support hotline the number is probably in the instructions with the printer. if you dont have them you should try Lexmark's website and see if you can find anything like that.

I work at home on a network with an HP thin client, I want to hook up a printer but the HP deskjet F-4180 printer I bought has a driver that is too large to for the memory of the thin client


You dont say what Thin Client device your running on but drivers themselves tend to be very small. Make sure your ust getting the driver not the whole HP install (ink monitor, etc).

Hi, My family recently purchased a Brother MFC-210 and brought it home thinking you could hook it up with a USB cord. To our surprisement, no USB slot was on the printer and could only be hooked up with a...


You need to use a category 5 Ethernet cable, not a standard phone cord. A Cat5 cable has 8 wires, where a phone cord only has 4. Surprising that you got anything to print. Look at the connector to verify that it has 8 connecting pins. It is also wider than a phone connector plug. You need to plug the printer into a Ethernet Hub or Switch which in turn connects to your ethernet (network) card or port on the computer. It will most likely not work if you plug it directly into your computer.

There's quite a variety of USB switches out there. Just go to Goggle and type in USB Printer Switch and pick the one you think best suites your needs.

Don't forget to buy cables...

Hope that helps...

Two weeks ago my computer creashed, lost everything,a technican has reprogramed most stuff,my printer does'nt print from the computer, its all hooked up,the technican gave me a Epson stylus C20 Series...


I have no clue why he would give you an Epson disc. Anyway, you can download your driver from HP's Site.

1. Unplug USB cable to printer, then from Control Panel > Printers delete any printers there.
2. Reboot
3. Install new drivers from the site above.
4. Plug USB cable back in.

Enjoy

I bought a lexmark z645 it dos`nt have the cable wire that hooks the printer to the computer


You need to buy a standard usb cable to connect your printer. Once you got it connect the square shaped end to the printer and the rectangular one to the computer.

cheers
