I have an HP printer & it will not work with my new Dell computer with Windows 8 what kind of printer do I need??

Patty, I’m not being flip when I say you need a printer that will work with Windows 8. Most printers new or old should, but some older ones may not.  I have a pretty old HP printer and it works fine with my Windows 8 computer. The drivers for many printers should already be supplied with Windows 8. But if it isn’t, you should be able to find the driver.  You don’t say which model of HP printer you have, but most likely there is a driver available for it out there.

HP has supplied a Printer Install Wizard to make the Windows 8 print driver available for their printer. You can download it by clicking here.

  1. If the printer is not disconnected when you install the drivers it will never work. Only connect to usb port when ask to.
