Re: My printer is connected to my computer, but my computer does not recognize it as connected.

If you are unable to print, I may be able to assist you but I will need to know the operating system of the computer you are using (ex. Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 8 32-bit, Mac OS X, etc).

 

--Can't Print?--   I believe this document will help you to completely resolve your issue.

Re: My printer is connected to my computer, but my computer does not recognize it as connected.

Here is a document regarding not being able to print from your computer.

--Can't Print?--

 

I hope this helps.  If not, I will need to know quite a bit of information:

--Such as: type/operating system of the computer, model of printer, how it is connected, and any error messages.  If it only happens in one program such as emails, the web-browser would be useful to know as well.

 

For more information about what to include for more assistance click here.

Re: My printer is connected to my computer, but my computer does not recognize it as connected.

I will do my best to help you but once again I need to know what kind of operating system you have.  Click the link below to find out more about your computer.

--How do I know which operating system my computer is running?--

 

 

Until I have that information, you will have to read this document step-by-step.  This is a very informative document that will tell you exactly what you need to do to get printing again.

--Can't Print?--

 

 

Also, run the HP Print and Scan Doctor and let me know the error message you receive.

I hope this helps!

Re: My printer is connected to my computer, but my computer does not recognize it as connected.

Since I installed Windows 8 on my computer it does not recognise the printer.

What should I do to fix the problem ?

That happened to me a and after deleting printer and reloading it again it still did not work . I ran a dianogstc check recomennded by HP and it said I needed a new port so i switched it and it worked . Sometimes your firewall can stop it from working so disconnect it and try it
