I have a Dell Dimension G1 and need to get the USB interface working for a printer I bought recently. How do I reinstall the USB interface, where can you get the files. I can delete it in system to get it to reinstall but cannot find the files. Please help as my daughter will kill me if I don't get the printer working, Thanks.

Go into the BIOS (tap on the "Delete" key as you start the pc) look through it and make sure USB is Enabled.

What OS are u running and what is the printer. For printers like HP often basic USB drivers come with the Windows OS eg: the drivers for USB operation come with WinXP and it installs them automatically

Take a look at this site click here. It has a good troubleshooter section and a Q and A forum. Helped me when I had a problem
