My Toshiba doesn't have...

My Toshiba doesn't have sound anymore and it shows under Outlook shows an X under icon "work off line" can't seem to connect to my HP printer.how do I fix it (I'm not very computer savy)

Technician's Assistant: How are you connecting to your HP printer: wirelessly or by USB?

Old way through USB

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the printer driver software?

When I first installed it many years ago, can't even find HP F4480 on any web

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

It used to work but once I changed ink cartridges it won't recognize commands and shows "print-error"
