Most printers nowadays are connected via USB cable.
You install the printer software and then hook up the cable when the software tells you to do so.

My esystem laptop keeps tuning of when it gets hot

Hi susan
Thanks for posting.

This because of the following
1. Overheating of processor due to bad vents near the CPU fan
2. Due to lot of dust inside.
3. Bad adapter power supply
4. Bad memory module

1st and the top most is to inspect if the fan is at high RPM when its hot. Any ways you can open the laptop and inspect the Heatsink it is a brass assy. which is just above the CPU. and a fan connected to it so it can vent the heat generated by the Processor. Normally if you use the laptop on bed or sofa the lint collected by the suction of the fan from the vent area at the bottom of the laptop will get accomulated neat the exhaust area of the fan causing the fan to slowdown and hence resulting in this sort of problem. If you are not confident in opeing the laptop do take it some nearest store for the same.

Hi lesstravelro...
No, the printer does not connect to the ethernet port.

Before you hook your printer to your laptop besure to run any softwear that came with the printer.
I would also recommend that you go to the Manufacturer's website for updated drivers for your printer.
Your printer will have a printer port or usb port on the side/back of the printer to plug the printer cable into the printer.
You will plug the other end of the printer cable into a usb port on your laptop.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Power pack connection problem

Ok, you need to obtain another PSU, or you run the risk of ruining your laptop for good. I suspect, the cable,where it goes into, the socket, is fractured. In any event you DO need a correctly fitting adapter. Laptops can run very very hot, I personally experience that frequently. If at all worried, get a "Laptop Cooler Pad" they are an inexpensive."Tray" the laptop sits in, that has extra cooling fans to cool the entire thing down, they work very well. As for any adapter getting hot, they all do get quite hot, always ensure that a clear flow of air is all round the PSU, too.

Cable connection from printer to laptop does not fit

And the laptop connector has 3 rows of pins while the printer connector has 2 rows, right?

You're trying to connect your printer to a monitor port.

As far as I can see your laptop doesn't have a LPT port. You will have to connect your printer to the USB port. If your printer doesn't have USB connection, you cannot connect it to your laptop.
