Go into the control panel and open printers and hardware. Look to see if your printer has a black checkmark next to it signifying that it is the default printer. If not, right click on it and select "make this my default printer".

Some laptops cannot run some printers or scanners. Make sure your laptop can handle running the printer from a usb port. It might help to have your laptop plugged into AC power. Also, make sure you have the most current printer drivers for your particular OS installed. If your laptop can't run your printer from its usb port, you can probably connect the printer to a desktop usb or a printer port, then print from your laptop through a home network.

I have a Dell A940 connected to my old Dell desktop, which I want to keep. How can I get it to print from my new laptop? I cannot find any USB ports on the printer to connect.


Specs state that it is USB - probably a "USB-B" connector. Anyway, how is it connected to your desktop? Surely you can take the USB lead from the printer out of the back of your desktop and plug it in your laptop? Am I missing something here? Specs don't say it is a "parallel" connector (unless it has both). If it has both (and you are using the parallel connection (big plug with many pins) on your desktop then there should be a USB-B socket on printer next to the big parallel socket.

Hp5550 not printing


Hi,
The first thing you need to do is make sure you have the correct driver so that you can re-install your printer. Then you need to go to your Start Menu and select Printers and Faxes. Delete any printers that you don't use or no longer have, plus any instances of the Deskjet 5550. Go into your Start Menu and select All Programs. Look for the Deskjet 5550 and put your mouse on it. Look for the Uninstall link then select it. Once it has finished uninstalling the program restart your computer. Insert the CD that came with your printer and follow the instructions. Your printer should now be re-installed and working. I hope this helps you solve your problem. Good luck!

2WIRE wireless router/DSL from AT&T


unless this is a wireless enabled or lan RJ45 connectable printer you cannot, the pc that the printer is connected to must be on at the time of the printing.

Wireless printers have their own arial and allocated ip address, Lan RJ45 connective printers can be connected to the router.

ok you can not just simply download drives from the internet. If you have a home computer that is plugged into the printer that has bluetooth then get a bluetooth usb and plug into the laptop, and it should print from the laptop.

I realized that I plugged the USB cord into the wrong place near the printer. In the back of the printer there is a port for the plug. Therefore, I didn't need to install driver software because it did it for me when I plugged it in correctly. Now I can print and the problem is solved.
