The "data" cable for a printer either is:
* USB -- a small almost-square socket, less than 1/2 inch (1 centimeter),
* parallel-port -- a very-wide connector, more than 2 inches (5 centimeters).

Some printers have *BOTH* connectors.

Determine which connector(s) you have, and buy a cable.
Often, a "Thrift Store" will have the "parallel-port" cable for a dollar.
Don't pay more than $4 for a "USB" cable.
If you're buying a USB cable, make sure that there is a "square" end -- some USB cables have a smaller "mini-USB" connector, in order to connect to a digital camera.

I have the same computer and sometimes have the same problems. Try going to Dell.com and update your drivers. It will ask for the service number which should be on a sticker somewhere on the back. If that does not help, right click the internet logo bottom right of your screen and do a diagnose and repair. It will fix the problem for you or tell you want is going on.

If you have the CD which you might have received with the printer go ahead an install the driver software using the CD.

If you don't have the driver CD to install the Printer Driver go to this website to download the driver for the same.

If you are install the printer using the CD, try not to plug in the usb cable in the begning/ the driver software will ask you to connect the usb cable so try to connect it at that time.

Old speakers will not work with new Dell Inspiron 530


Speakers are pretty much universal. Plug them in, and connect the audio cable to the green receptacle on the computer.
