the problem may be that the driver is pointing the printer to print via the serial port, so you will have to go to the printers and faxes folder and see if your printer is listed, if so right click and select properties, then in the next window, click on the 'Ports' tab and you will have to click configure port to change it to usb.
Prior to the issue you facing currently seem like ,
1)have u put the printer driver as default.
2)have u point to the correct printer port at the driver.
3)at the driver advance setting ;get the device status then reboot the machine .
GOOD LUCK MATE......Kindly RATE ME!!! Thanks YOU.
The port should be active. You can look for problems by right-clicking My Computer and then Properties. Under the Hardware tab, press the Device Manager button. Any hardware issues will show either a question mark or exclamation mark, disabled items with a red x. After the printer is connected, turn it on, then go to Start -> Control Panel. Here, go to add hardware. See if this finds it.
If not, have you added the printer after connecting it via USB under Start -> Printers and Faxes? What about inserting the installation CD before connecting the printer?
If you have a home network, try a Print Server with parallel port. You will connect the printer to the print server via parallel, and the print server to a network hub/switch/router (any of the listed) via a network cable, and the computer to the hub/switch/router via network cable or wireless.
Cost should be around $20 - $60 depending on make/model.
i got my dp-301u to work fine with my hp1020 on 2 different
workstations with the following steps.
1. install printer locally via usb and test. 2. create a second printer as per the dlink manual creating a port. don't worry about the name as we will delete it. 3.
once created go into the properties of the 2nd printer and change the
port to something local - anything will do to free up the port. 4. go into the properties of the printer that was created in step 1. and change the port to that of the print server. 5. test print. should work fine.
