Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a computer with the Vista software and I'm having problems connecting a printer. The computer is a Gateway and the printer is Lexmark X4550.


Answers :

The reason you are having problems is because you need to install the driver for the printer. The driver is the software that allows the operating system and the printer to communicate.
