Question about Compaq 56K Modem

1 Answer

Printer cable I just bought a HP Deskjet printer this afternoon. Having not installed a printer before, I can not seem to find where I connect the USB cable device into the back of my modem. I have a HP monitor, but a Compaq modem. Does Compaq not have a printer connection?? HELP!!!

I have an hp desk jet 3322 printer no cd need to install and configure can u help?


What Operating System do you have? If you have 2000 or XP here are the drivers:

Drivers for XP or 2000


Drivers for Vista + WIndows7
The alternative driver is Deskjet 3600

Or

HP itself for Drivers for Vista + Windows7

Installation
Also note once you get the driver if you are using a USB cable to connect it to the PC, that you install it like this:

1. Make sure the USB cable is not connected to the PC but connected to the Printer
2. Install the driver
3. When prompted then plug the USB cable into the USB port on the PC to complete the installation process.

My father bought me a new printer. The printer is a HP Deskjet D1460 and my laptop cannot recognize the printer. My OS is vizta


  1. Verify your USB ports are working properly by plugging any other devise. Eg. Pen Drive.
  2. You have to 1st install the software and then plug the printer, If you plug the printer before install software it wont detect sometime.
  3. Then If you are using a lengthy cable to connect printer, Try with a shorter cable. Some HP printers does not support long cables

HP Deskjet 930C USB connection


Yes but you may have to re-install the software for the camera. If so,
Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
