Customer Question
I have only had...

I have only had my computer for three weeks and it has Windows 10.

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your computer? What version of Windows are you running?

I have a Del Inspiron 24 Model 3455. When I initially set it up my printer HP Envy 5540 all in one was working fine. Then after about two weeks the computer does not recognize the printer drive. The printer is on the setting but will not connect. I have check with HP and they say it is a computer problem. I was on line to the Geek squad for 3.5 hours and they said it was a problem with my internet service. I worked with the internet people yesterday and they said my internet is working fine. What I have gleaned from all this loading and unloading of the printer software is that when my Microsoft updated after about 2 weeks my computer no longer recognizes the printer. Does this sound like a familiar problem with Windows 10?

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

The Windows 10 automatically updates whenever.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?

It just seems like the computer or Windows 10 does not recognize my printer driver.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
