Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Cannot get my gateway ZX4800-3 desktop to send data to Printer

\015 My main computer and printer (HP deskjet 5550) are wired to the verizon fios cable and wireless router. I have a wireless network set up so that our laptops can send files to be printed from wherever they are in the house. All of my computers have windows XP except the new Gateway ZX4800-3 which has windows 7. I cannot seem to get a connection to send information to the printer.\015

Answers :

I wanted to provide some clarification to you. Once your devices (printer in this case) and computers are connected to your router, they have the connection. Now the communication settings between each computer and devices are to be configured on each computer individually. Obviously the first step would be to install the drivers that came with your printer on the new Gateway just like you did on your other computers. *This is undoubtedly where the problem lies.* You have a printer that was produced prior to Windows 7 being released. Check the website of the manufacturer of your printer to see if they have released a new driver for Windows 7. Download it to your new computer and install. That should take care of you.
