Hello,

I am having a hell of a time trying to get my printer installed.

I just got a "new" computer and I was trying to gte my printer installed on this computer but my computer cant detect it.


My printer cable is connected and the printer is on. There is a new black printer cart installed and it worked fine when i had it on my other computer.

I have the software that it came with. I cant find my CD BUT i downloaded the software for my printer model from the manufacturer website.

How do I get my computer to detect my printer?


Oh yeah.. its a plug and play connection


thanks,
j

What OS do you have on this "new" computer? Is the printer connected to the Parallel port, or to a USB port?
