I bought the HP Deskjet 5650, but I'm not sure how to install it to my home computer.

First find the installation disk that came with your printer in the box. Install the software by placing the disk in your CDROM of your computer and then follow the instructions on the screen. when the software has finished installing, connect your printer to the computer with your USB cord and the computer will automatically do the rest.

Some operating systems already have the driver for your printer and the software is not necessary. To check and see if your computers operating system already has the necessary drivers, just connect your printer via your usb cord. Your computer will recognize the printer once the cord is connected and you will see a pop up message around the right hand corner of the monitor screen that says "new equipment detected" and the computer will do the rest.

Good luck!

How to hookup a hp deskjet 2480 printer

Lets think about this for a second:

How do you install the software (drivers, actually) when you dont have the CD?

You go to the manufacturers website and download them to your computer. Make sure you get the driver for the OPERATING SYSTEM you are using on your computer.

How do you connect a printer without a USB cord?

Is your printer 'wireless' or 'bluetooth'? If no, and there is no special HP cord and no parallel port, you cannot connect it. If it requires a wire, it REQUIRES a wire.

Ok, maybe you don't have one - most printers do not come with an appropriate cable. In this case, get one. They are available where ever computer supplies are sold. You ask for a USB Printer Cable. Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, Best Buy, Radio Shack, other Big Box store, Joe Blow's computer repair shop. Don't have any such in your area, look at the advertisers here at You could always go back to the place you bought your printer and get one from them.

The 64 $ question is this: Is your new printer compatable with the Operating System on your computer? ... and how do you know this? Search "microsoft compatability list for (insert the name of your OS)". If your printer is listed by make and model for your OS, that means MS is supporting the printer. If it is NOT listed, MS is NOT supporting the printer, in which case you must go to or to look for a driver for your OS (NOT for your computer model, necessarily). If one is listed, you should get it. If none is listed, Dell will not support this printer when used by your OS. In this case, you are probably at the end of the road, though there is occasionally a driver available for some printers from third party developers.

Your computer tells you there is no Internet Explorer. Did you use the Windows Search function to look for this program? Start - Search - enter 'Internet Explorer'. When you find it, click on it and see what happens. There is a very good possibility that your short cut is no good. If that is the case, (you will know if the program shows up and runs) create a new shortcut. If it is not there, hopefully your computer is on a network and you can download the program from a variety of sources directly to the computer with no IE. If IE runs but tells you it is off line, click TOOLS, OPTIONS, unclick "work offline". Then try again.

There is no recognition of the USB cord but it is there. You see it, obviously, but the computer cant see it. Guess what, doesn't make any difference if you see it. Replace the cord. FYI, there is USB 1, USB 2 and USB 3 is waiting to be introduced. Which one do you have? Which one does your printer require?

I trust you will find these responses will address your issues and solve your trouble. If you need more assistance, please post a comment to this quesiton.

Thank you for your interest in

Lexmark x5340 printer "can't communicate with computer." All hardware okay. Just bought new USB cord since printers don't come with them anymore. Have older computer 2001 Gateway, however was wondering if...

I had a brand new usb cord that didn't work but cost a lot of money. I went to wal-mart and bought a usb cord for like $6 that had a printer icon on the package and hooked that up and the message disappeared. I don't know if that helps but hope it does.

Unable to connect printer to pc

Ok this may sound silly but I had exactly the same problem with a Cannon, tried new cords from the same Computer shop and other PC's with no success, now for the good news, by chance I tried another brand of USB printer cord bought from BIG W and it burst into life. So I suggest try another brand. Also make sure your computer USB port is set for USB 2.
