    What printer model? If it an HP printer providing the model should enable us to give you a link to the proper drivers and setup instructions. This would likely be the case for other manufacturers as well.

Can not hook my laptop to my printer lexmark x6570

Keep in mind it helps giving information. I'm glad you gave the printer model number. I am guessing you are attempting to connect through USB? Or are you attempting a wireless connection? Also helps to give what Operating System you are using: Windows, Mac, Linux, etc. If you are on Windows, which is my guess, I would say before connecting the USB, insert the driver disc and install that information first before connecting the printer to the computer.

I have a old dell computer for my children. the lexmark is a new printer i do not have any manuals or directions as to how to setup this printer.

Your new printer should have come with a set up or driver disk. Put that disk in the computer and follow the prompts to either install the printer or download drivers. If you download a driver, be sure to write down the folder the driver was installed to, then hook up your printer and tell the driver install window to look in the folder the driver was placed into.

I hope that this imformation was helpful and helps you go in the right direction to solving your problem. If it does, please leave positive feed back for me.

I can't connect my Lexmark X1240 to windows xp. My computer tells me that I should insert a disk. i don't have one. Sheila

Pick another option for loading the drivers and software for the printer.

should help you out. Download the driver to your computer to where you will be able to find it, and then hook up the printer. When it wants the software (disk you dont have) direct the computer to the file(s) you downloaded and select. The process should be easy to follow from there. I hope this helps.

Hpofficejet j4500 upon setting up my new printer I follow all the steps and when I was told by way of directions to install the disk the information needed didn't show up on my screen what do I do next


the best way to hook up the printer is to put the cd first and follow the steps.
If something has gone wrong ,do not worry .
there are some of the things we can check to make sure that the printer is properly configured on the computer.

1>goto start->run->(type there) devmgmt.msc
thsi should bring the device manager
in the device manager check the printer entries,and also the universal serial bus entries at the bottom.

if they have any yellow exclamation mark showing a fault.
youmay update the drivers by right clicking the entry and choosing the update drivers option.
this wil bringthe wizard and then you need to browse to get the exact location of the drivers ,which should be located on the cd

Thanks and regards

I dont know how to set up my routers

Put the setup disk in your computer and it will step you through the process.
Typically, you will have to hook your computer directly to an internet connection (with ethernet cable), then unhook it and connect the internet cable to the router (usually in port 1), then connect an ethernet cable from the router to your computer and plug in the router.
The disk should download the appropriate software and walk you through setting up a password and stuff.
After all that, you can unhook your computer and use it wirelessly.
