Re: need help installing printer
You need to run the software that came with the machine or download the latest drivers from:
Make sure you delete any other failed instances of the printer from the print properties| in control panel.
During the install the program will ask to have the printer hooked up. Plug the printer into the computer via the usb cable(or lpt cable). The install should find the printer and the install will complete. If the printer isn't found still, try a different usb port/or cable.
Let me know what happens.

*Turn computer off. *Plug printer into a port on the back of your computer. There are very few ports so you should be able to find one that makes your printer plug. Plug printer into power strip/outlet. *Turn computer back on. *Keep printer off for now. During installation it should tell you to turn the printer on. *Put the CD that came with the printer into the cd/dvd drive. A menu should appear. You want to "Install" or "Setup" your printer. Something along those lines. Follow the instruction from there. *After successful installation of the printer restart the computer.
That is as basic as I can make it. I hope this helps. Thanks.
You need to reinstall your printer driver. If you have the installation cd,
1. unplug your printer from the computer,
2. install the driver from the cd,
3. plug your printer back into the computer
4. turn the printer on
5. print your document.
If you do not have the installation cd, try the printer manufacturer's web site for the print driver. Before installing the driver, disconnect the printer from the pc to make sure installation goes smoothly.
Once the driver is installed, when you plug the printer into the computer and power it on, the computer will find it and finish the installation process automatically.
