My printer won't print due to the fact that the troubleshoot says I'm not connected to a computer....but I am. How do I download a new driver to make it work. thanx
Hello Sir, Hi, that is common error with printers today, but this error can be fixed, here are some of the thing you need to do, they may help.
for usb interface.
1. If you are using a USB interface, you need to install first the driver software, along the setup, you will be prompted to power on the printer and plug in the USB cable to your computer and the printer. make your connection here. If the connection fails, do this several times.
2. If the 1. fails try using another USB port.
for centronics parallel printer cable.
1. Make the connection of the printer to the computer before installing the driver software.
2. Power on the printer.
3. Power on the computer and install the driver CD.
If you do not have the driver cd and you did not mention what printer you have. do a Google search, type the printer make and model and search for the driver. download the driver, usually from the manufacturer's website.
