How do i get a printer cable attached to this PC


Hi Gene,
Most newer printers today are connect via USB. If it's an older printer, it might be connected with a Parallel cable. Pretty much all PC's today have done away with the old Parallel connector and have gone to USB. If your printer has a Parallel connection, it might be time to get either a Wireless printer, or one with USB connections.

Hope this helps

Is there any driver, program or software fix that will allow me to load my "Intel Create & Share Software on my Windows 7 Dell Inspiron 530?


The Intel Create & Share was written for Windows 2K and XP and not updated. The workaround is to use a computer (second machine, dual boot or virtual) with XP installed.

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or update to one of those versions, you may be able to run a virtual XP computer for free. Download from Microsoft and install in order the Virtual PC program and the XP mode software. Install the Intel Create & Share program in XP mode as if it is your only OS. (Note: you can't have hardware installed on the virtual and real computer at the same time. To share files you will need to save them to external media (USB or optical disc).)

Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels. For the other options, you will need a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

I hope this helps.

Printer wont install


Your query is very vague. Is it the software that you can't install. The drivers??? Make sure your pc and printer are connected using usb cable or parallel cable. Usuaslly printer drivers and software discs run automatically when you insert them. If the disc is corrupt/damaged you can usually download the software/drivers from the manufacturers website.

Vista 64 bit OS did not accept the driver for the USB to DB25 parallel cable. Message says the driver must have a digital signature.


Until a new version for 64-bit Vista comes out, there are two workarounds:
1. Boot Windows holding down the F8 key and select “Disable driver signature enforcement”. This will let you install unsigned drivers for that session.
2. Run cmd.exe as an administrator (right-click it to do this) and then type:
bcdedit -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

post again if you have problems.--------- Please rate this solution.---------

Vista 64 bit OS says I must get a driver with a digital signature to install USB to DB25 parallel cable. The driver on the disc which came with the cable was not accepted by Vista.


1. Get a new signed driver from the adapter manufacturer.
2. Try the workarounds listed here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/08/15/workaround-for-vista-cannot-load-low-level-driver-signing-issue/

For what it is worth, I generally found USB to parallel adapters worthless as most printers will not work with the adapter. Usually easier to get a new printer. If a desktop, get a parallel port expansion card.

I have a Roland Camm-1 CX-24 cutting machine that has a parallel connection. I have recently bought a Dell Inspiron 1720 with a Windows Vista OS. I have a USB to Parallel cable to connect the two. I have...


connect the printer and the comp. and boot up....windows should recognize the new device.
did you add the plotter to "add printers" and its driver and to the correct port?
make sure your plotter is on and loaded and function key pressed.
also some cable manufacturers supply a driver...so download one if need be.
what software are you using? is the software cutter driver set to the correct printer and port?
(by default it never is)!!

I have forgotten my bios password and can't get into my toshiba a135-s2246 laptop


One solution is using a parallel Loopback plug. This is a simple device that plugs into the parallel port of the machine and removes the password when you boot it up.

To make it you will need a 25 pin DB25 plug, take the plug apart and join these pins using some old cable;
Pins: 1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15, and 18-25

Plug it into your parallel port and boot up your machine, the password should be removed as soon as it boots.

Note: This will work on majority of older Toshiba's (1995 – 2002) and obviously only ones that have a parallel port.

My printer will not print. It says printer paused 11 documents waiting. I need to unpause it. I do not know how to do that. I have the hp photosmart c3140 all in one


Go to printer icon in control panel, click to open, right click printer and you will see properties. Click check your ports, Top ports are usually parallel, New printers use CPU ports. Try giving it a USB port if you are using a USB cable. Did your printer print on set up??? If you have the printer disc, delete this printer and go throught the re install, remember, many new HP do not want you to plug in printer till the programs ask.. Good luck
