Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

The computer can not communicate to the printer after installing the software.


Answers :

Did you install the software first, and then plug in the printer? Or did you connect the printer and then install the software? For most newer USB printers, you need to install the software before you plug the printer into the computer, then at a certain point, their software (not Windows) tells you when to connect the printer.
