    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

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