Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Trying to hook up my printer

\015 I have a new emachines desktop and I am trying to hook up my printer using a USB cord, but I don't know which port is which. it's asking whether its in port lpt1,2,3,etc... its not labeled. I have it in the usb port right next to where the internet is plugged into. It didn't come with a diagram...\015\012\015\012when I just guessed which port it was I got to the ''select type of printer'' portion and HP Laser jet 1022 wasn't even an option! what do I do?\015

Answers :

Hook up the USB cord from printer to any free one on the PC. Once you power on the printer, the computer will detect a new device. It will ask for a driver. Insert the CD and wait. If you have the installation CD, you can also start with that and it should install the drivers. This would not be a LPT port but one of the USB. Id you already went though it, during install, have to do a manual selection and choose Have Disk and point to either the CD or any folder where you have the drivers on the computer.

I have a desktop computer that is hooked up to a printer. Recently I purchased a laptop and router. I was trying to print from the laptop to the printer, but get the message that the printer is offline. Does the desktop computer have to be on in order for the laptop to print to the attached printer? it seems kind of pointless to have to have both computers on just print. Is there some other way where I can have only the laptop and printer on to print? Thank you.
