Hi,

Help me understand the setup better: the printer is connected to the PC directly, or is it connected through ethernet to your DSL connector? RAM has almost nothing to do with your issue, although having more RAM never hurt anyone!

The HP is supported by Bonjour, with is Apple's no-fuss LAN print setup, so if it is indeed attached to the Dell, install Bonjour for windows here:

If I'm off the mark on your setup, get me as much information as you can, as we'll get you printing.

Hi Marc,

 

Sorry it took me so long to get to this. The printer is connected to the Dell directly. So all I need to do is download the Bonjour? Will it walk me through a set-up or what. I'm a bit computer challenged, but am willing to learn.

 

Mac Support Specialist: Marc Schonbrun, Mac Genius replied 9 years ago
Bonjour should be automatic and very, very easy. Try it, if it works, great. If not, I'll opt out and let someone else look.

Marc,

 

O.K...I installed the Bonjour printer wizard on my PC. When I went to the printer wizard, it's asking me to select the printer that I want to use using the list below and then it says that there are no Bonjour printers available. I have an HP laserjet 3050 and it is hooked up directly to the PC and it works on the PC because I just printed something off of the internet with it. What am I missing?

Mac Support Specialist: Marc Schonbrun, Mac Genius replied 9 years ago
According to HP, it is Bonjour compatible, but Windows is out of my area of experience, so I'm going to leave this one to others and opt out of this. Sorry I wasn't able to help you!

OK, I assume that I just wait for someone else to answer or do I need to ask again????
Mac Support Specialist: Marc Schonbrun, Mac Genius replied 9 years ago
You don't need to ask again, it's now an open query.
Sorry, I haven't touched Windows in quite a while.

What Customers are Saying:

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
