    connecting my new laptop with my printer


    I got my laptop a couple of months ago but continue to be unable to connect it with my printer. Can someone walk me through it? None of the suggested tips helps. The message I get when I try to connect is that the printer is unavailable.

    :)

  2. connect new laptop to old printer

    Hi Yon,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being a part of Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about adding a printer to your device. We will help you with this issue.

    This issue might have occurred due to corrupted or outdated printer drivers after upgrade to Windows 10. We will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know if the drivers are compatible to Windows 10 Operating System?



    Try few of the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps you to add the printer.

    Step 1: If the device is not detected on your computer try to run Hardware and Devices troubleshooter.

    Hardware and Devices troubleshooter
    checks for common problems and makes sure that any new device or hardware connected to your PC is installed correctly.

    Follow:

    • Press Windows key from the keyboard, type
      Troubleshooting and select it.
    • Click on view all option on the upper left corner of
      Troubleshooting window.
    • Select the Hardware and Device
      options from the list.
    • Click Next to run the
      Hardware and Device
      Troubleshooter.

    Step 2: I suggest you to check the status of
    Print Spooler service and check.

    Print Spooler service, spools print service and handles interactions with the printer.
    If you turn off this service you won’t be able to print or see your printer.

    Steps:

    • Press Windows + R to open Run command, type
      Services.msc and press Enter.
    • Search for Printer Spooler service, right click on it and
      Start the service.
    • Also, set the Startup type to Automatic.
    • Now check if you are able to install the driver.

    Step 3: I suggest you to refer to the below thread, check if your issue matches with the same.

    If so, try the troubleshooting steps suggested by Greg Carmack - MS MVP
    on January 10, 2016 and check if it helps.
