Re: laptop to printer
1- put the printer in a SHARE folder
2- put her laptop in the share folder
3-( I'm assuming she is in your residence,!!!??? she can not do it if she is in a different location )
there may be a solution if she is away from home there is a device they sell you connect it to your cable and desktop; can also be used for hooking up your DVD, VCR, camera (checking your house from a camera ;security) and playing it while in another place. Ask at a computer store.

If you have a wireless printer and you also will need a wireless router like Linksys, and setup a wifi within your home, then you can install the software from the printer and install the drivers and it so guide you through the software to link you laptop to your printer, if you already have the wireless router then you will have even less tasks to complete, when I installed my wireless printer it specified that I should not connect any cables to the printer and run both computers wirelessly, I would highly recommend that you use this method, with the one computer linked to the printer you may not be able to get the outside connection to work from your laptop, if I can be any more assistant please let me know?
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
