Re: why won`t my printer work

What printer model. Does it have support for Win7? Did you goto HP's driver download section for that printer?

Re: why won`t my printer work



I understand you are unable to get your printer working and I would like to help. I would need some more information to better assist you and find the correct troubleshooting guides.


Please respond with the following information:

Your Printers Model Number

Your Operating System (Windows or Mac)

Are you seeing any error messages? If so, what are they?

Are you connecting USB, Wireless or Ethernet?


Hope to hear from you soon!
