The printer is a Dell 962? Is it an older model? And what operating system is on your laptop? If the printer is older and the laptop is newer, there may not be any printer drivers new enough for the laptop to recognize it (although most are backward compatible to an extent).

You may be able to download the latest W7 drivers to the HP and install them. Then try to use a shared drive. Normally the sharing computer would have them available for the network.

It may be that that OS is not supported.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
