my laptop will not let me install a printer

Every time I try install a new device (printer), I get an error message saying I cannot install a printing device.

Re: my laptop will not let me install a printer

Please read this post then provide some details.  What printer model? What operating system? How is the printer connected - USB, wired LAN, Wireless LAN, bluetooth? What exactly is the error message?

 

Running the diagnostics at http://www.hp.com/go/tools may help resolve the issue.
