Question about Computers & Internet

My Dell 4550 control panel keeps adding printer icons. I'm hooked to a HP 6280 but I have on the CP I have to print from #4. My wife has her own account and she uses #3 when it works. Why so many icons and how to get down to one that always works?

Try uninstalling your printer from both user accounts then make sure that when you reinstall your printer that you and your wife use the same port for the printer instead of having the printer switch from one port to another every time you or your wife uses the printer to avoid having the computer from detecting the printer in a different port each time it is used in a different account ^_^

Dell Dimension 4550 and HP printer 2410. Everytime computer is turned on, it detects new hardware and reinstalls the printer, and repeats the process again. After that, the printer seems to work OK.


disconnect the printer, go into device manager and delete all the printers listed there. go onto the printer manufacturer website and download the drivers manually then install them. Hook the printer back up.

HP 4550 will not print graphics


This printer will work with Vista. I use the driver that Vista provides with the standard HP internal network card and it works fine. Try putting your network card back in and undoing the USB adapter changes. Then just go in and add it back with the "Add Printer" wizard.

My compliments on the 4550, though. It's a great printer. A bit slow compared to what's out there new, but a workhorse that will last nearly forever.

I can't seem to print borderless photo prints


Ok,
After going back and forth with Hp which by the way were very helpful I still did not get a fix. I decided to go to "Control Panel" Clicked on "Printers and Faxes". Right clicked on my printer icon and deleted it. Then I clicked on "Add a printer" I added the C5180 again and now it works great. Don't know why and I don't care. Just so it works again. That's the nature of computers sometimes. Thanks

HP 4550 PRINTER PROBLEM


Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Printers and add a printer. Select it as a network printer, and stop it searching (unless it finds it of course - which sounds unlikely!) Then click on "The printer that I want isn't listed"
Choose to add a printer using the IP or hostname, and click next.
Type in the IP address of the printer. This can be found by printing out the network configuration page from the printer. The port will be filled in for you. Click next.
The printer should now be added.

Printing


hi,

here are the things that i want you to follow to somehow resolve your issue.

1. On your computer, click on start then go to control panel
2. inside control panel open the PRINTERS and FAXES (XP) or PRINTER (VISTA).
3. make sure change the default printer icon to the HP Officejet 5600 series.
- right click HP Officejet 5600 series and choose "set as default printer"
4. then try printing,

note: the reason why you encounter that problem is because the default printer icon is the "HP officejet 5600 series fax".

best regards

No internet connection


if you have access to another printer with an internet connection, go to this site:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Enter the service tag for the system and then download the broadcom network driver to a USB Drive or CD and then take it to the Dimension 4550 and reinstall the driver.
