Try a different USB cable. If that does not work, try the printer on a different computer. If it does not get recognized there as well, then your printer is probably defective and you'll need to get it serviced.
Also make sure that you have the latest drivers installed for your printer for your OS.

My Dell 3115cn printer will not connect to the network (it still works on USB cable), hard to believe it's broken, so can the printer system be reset?


Try turning off the printer and disconnecting power plug from wall. Hold power on button for about a minute. Then replug unit and turn power on - it should then attempt to hook up to your existing network.

If no go, try reinstalling the software that initially came with printer and was used to set up the network

How to connect to a laptop


Lexmark is one of the most popular printer manufacturers, and the installation process is fairly straightforward no matter what computer brand you have. Lexmark, however, doesn't always include all of the equipment required to hook up the printer. If you want to hook up your Lexmark printer to your Gateway laptop, you will probably need to purchase a printer USB cable.

1.Plug your Lexmark printer into the power outlet.
2.Turn on your laptop, or make sure all software programs are closed if your computer is already on.
3.Insert your installation disk into your Gateway laptop's CD or DVD drive. Wait for the "Welcome" screen to appear. If it doesn't appear after a minute, launch the installation CD manually by going to your start menu and clicking on "Run." In the "Run" field, type: D:\setup.exe
4.Press the "Install" button on your "Welcome" screen to go on to the "Introduction" screen.
5.Press "Continue" on the "Introduction screen" and press "Continue" again on the "Read Me" screen. Agree to the license agreement and follow any additional installation prompts.
6.Connect the Lexmark printer to your Gateway laptop when prompted. Plug the USB cable to the back of the Lexmark printer in the "Quick Connect Laptop Port." Then plug the other end of the USB to your Gateway laptop.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Bought a used HP1022n printer. Need to hook up to my computer as a local printer. When trying to instal the driver, the set-up says waiting to connect to the computer. I have the USB cable connected,...


Make sure you don't have the printer connected until after you install the driver. If you had the printer hooked up to the computer before you installed the driver, uninstall and start over. There should be a prompt during the installation process that tells you when to hook up the printer. If that doesn't work, you may have a driver for a different operating system than what you have on your computer. If you need further assistance, please email me the operating system you are using on your computer.

When printers USB cable is plugged in it is not recognised. Driver installs ok butcomputer does not communivate with printer.


Unless your printer main board has failed, the only reason that a USB connection would not communicate is if your printer is turned off or if the USB printer cable or connection is faulty. Try connecting other equipment with the cable and see if that gets recognised by your computer also try connecting to a different USB socket on your computer.
Hope this helps.

I want to hook the printer to my computer


What brand printer? Is it an HP laserjet/inkjet?

If the printer is relatively new, there should be a USB Type B port on the printer. You'll need a USB cable that can connect the printer to the PC.

Once you have the USB cable plugged in, make sure the printer is turned on. If running Windows 2000/XP/Vista the hardware manager should automatically try to install the printer for you.

You can check that the printer installed by going to Start > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. You should see the printer listed.
