Then your computer is a Windows PC - thanks for the information.

On your computer, please go to

Control Panel

and then go to

and then to


and tell me what version of Windows is on the computer, and also look for the

System Type

which should be either 32-bit or 64-bit.

Let me know, and I will give you a procedure to get the printer working again, appropriate to your Windows type and version.
