    Hey even I want to know how to connect a Dell 968 printer to HP 625 laptop which is working in Windows 7. I have contacted Dell and HP support services and still not able to sort out the complexity. The software has been downloaded from the Dell site but I cannot send anything to print. The laptop is not reading the printer. I have tried all the usual steps like loading and reloading software, verifying all connections, etc. The printer works absolutely on a Dell E6400. Suggestion on solving the difficulty appreciated. Thanks.

    Hey you first have to install the printer software on the system by clicking the "Eject" button on the right edge of the Inspiron laptop to open the CD-ROM tray. Put the software disc in the tray plus close. When the disc begins playback, press each on screen prompt button to advance through the installation, and then restart the system when finished. Make sure the input port on the back of the HP printer to decide which cable to utilize. Connect directly USB cable to the printer if it is set with a USB port. If not, attach a parallel port plug on single end of the USB adapter cable to the back of the printer. Connect the USB plug on the other end of the cable to the Dell Inspiron by means of any obtainable USB port. There are two ports stacked one over the other on the back edge of the laptop plus two ports on the right edge of the laptop.

    Hey I got some information for you that the Dell Inspiron laptops are prepared with four standard USB ports to connect the laptop to other devices, for example a Hewlett Packard printer. Newer HP printers also utilize a standard USB port for a straight connection with the laptop. Older printers with parallel ports (two rows of metal pins) will be able to still be connected to an Inspiron, but a cable adapter is wanted to convert the USB output from the laptop to a parallel input that the printer be able to process.
