My computer won't recognise my USB cable (code 43 error)


Its maybe the printer is not compatible with your computer, will to try several steps to determine a solution,
1 try another USB to see if it recognizes it,
2 download and install the driver from the printer manufacturer
3 try another USB device into the same USB port to see if it recognizes it if it does then the USB on your computer works as it should,
if it does then the fault is either software or the printer compatibility.
4 follow step 2 if the problem persist then the answer is your printer is not compatible and will need to order one that works for your system.

Just got a new HP Pavilion desktop. HP support tells me my 7210 all-in-one is not longer supported and cannot be installed to work with the new desktop. Printer is 5 years old but works perfectly. Do I...


Sorry to inform you, but it appears that the printer is not compatible with Windows 7, which i think is installed in your new computer. I have checked the HP's website and they have not listed any drivers for Window 7 for this printer.
It does not mean that, we can't try to install it in this computer. Windows 7 has a very good feature called Troubleshoot Compatibility mode, in which we can try to install those drivers in the computer which are compatible with the older version of the Windows.

Just bought a new computer and my Dell 720printer does not work? Thank you


If you bought a new computer it probably has Windows 7 installed and the Dell 720 may not be compatible. You can try downloading the Vista drivers from Dell here. They may work with Windows 7. If not, you'll need to replace the printer with a later, Windows 7 compatible one.

Have you recently upgraded to Win 7?

Has your printer worked with this computer in the past?

Attemping to install software that came with the printr and computer wont see printer ... I have recently received a new computer at home and am just now attemping to install printer onto computer screen....


Need to know a bit more. Is this an older printer? It may not be compatible with your computer/OS. Try checking with your Operating System to see if it is compatible with the printer. Go to Windows Help to find out more about printer conflicts and compatibilities.

Compatibility


I have yet to setup any printer on a print server and not have it work. There are times that some functions do not work. For example there are control buttons on the printer itself for scanning, copying, faxing etc that if it was "directly" connected to the computer itself the computer would prompt you .. those kind of things don't work .. but other than that .. You should have no problem
