Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop
I'm just getting around to setting up the printer that came with my order of a couple of months ago [BBY01-251726056379], but I don't see a way to connect the printer to the computer [I have a disk, but I haven't worked with it yet]. I think it's the Epson Stylus printer. Can you help and tell me what I need, or send something to me? Thanks. I'm not sure which product I have, but it is a Gateway [I put something below just to fill in the space]. Thanks.
If your computer is bundled with an Epson printer, usually Epson printer aren't bundled with USB cable you check the model of your Epson printer by clicking on this link http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/SupportIndex.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes after you select the model of your product, click the more on this product link and clic on what's in the box link. I can guarantee that you most of them is not bundled with USB. If I am not mistaken the main reason why Epson doesn't bother to bundle to USB cables in their products is:
1. Most computer users have USB cable readily available as they may have printers using the cable previously
2. USB cable is readily available in local computer store (Officemax, Office Depot, Bestbuy etc)
3. They think that bundling it with their product will increase the cost of production which will entail them to increase the price of their product.

Hi CainF, most printers do not come with the USB cable needed to connect PC to printer. Click on this link below.
To get a close up view of the ends of the printer cable click additional images just below & to the left of the picture.
You can find these printer cables at most PC stores or you can buy directly from the site above. Their prices are average or better.
