    I can't find my HP PSC 1350 printer. The printer is connected to Windows Vista sadly. Two of my Windows XP computers can connect and print. I have even downloaded an HP setup assistant and that can't even find it. Any suggestions?

    btw im new to the mac world, trying to figure out the basics.

    So it's an HP printer and you have three windows PCs, one of which can't find it?

    I know this doesn't resolve your issue, but that is a classic reason I recommend to everyone in the world with a home network to set your printer on the LAN with a print server, It is the smartest thing I have ever done. </unsolicited encouragement>
    Without it, so many things can go wrong.

    Thanks, I should look into a print server, I know they are only like $50 bucks. That would really help since I have 4 computers in the house that all print to the printer at some point, and then I also have friends that sometimes use it to if they are over.
