    printer: HPphotosmartC4440 all in one printer
    it says it is working fine, however, when i try to print anything it will not print.
    my documents do not seem to go from my computer to the printer.
    i even bought a new USB cord.

    Have you downloaded drivers for your printer that are compatible with Windows 8.1?

    Usually Windows is able to give a printer a generic driver regardless to perform at least the print function, but a manufacturer driver would be helpful to have.
