Question about D-Link DI-707P Router (DSDLDI707P)

1 Answer

I have a HP Deskjet 842C printer and an older gateway computer

I used to be able to print but now I cannot. I have the HP software, I just cannot get it to work. There is a square ended cable with fits to the computer and printer but when I connect the computer turns off. I have tried every service available and cannot get an answer. Why did it work for so long and then quit? Can you help me? Thanks, Cary Anne

Hello, It sounds like a driver problem. We can try this. Click start, right click my computer and left click manage. Next click device manager. This will list all the hardware and devices on the computer. The printer is listed under the ports(COM & LPT). Click the + in the box and the tree opens up and shows the printer. Right click on the printer and click update driver. Follow directions from install wizard. Reboot computer and see what happens. Let me know if Flames shoot out..LOL..Just kidding..Good Luck..!!

The driver for this printer, when used within Windows 7, is built-in or 'in-OS' so you do not have access to the HP solution center or HP Toolbox.
