For connecting Samsung printer to my Compaq Presario cq60 laptop, have a look at these outlined points -

  1. Firstly, you have to locate Samsung printer cable. Although all printers come with a cable package into a box.
  2. Now, you have to connect your laptop to Samsung printer via USB port. If there exists no USB port then you can use the parallel port. After connecting to port, you have to check your laptop for proper connection. There is the slight difference between USB port and parallel port. USB ports look alike rectangular ports and on the other hand parallel ports are larger and also have holes for several small pins.
  3. Next, you have to plug the cable into your printer on that end which is square I shape and located on the back side of the printer. If you have any confusion in locating this port then check your printer’s manual.
  4. In next step, you have to plug another end of that cable into your laptop’s USB port. Make sure the cable you are using is securely plugged into ports of both devices i.e., laptop and Samsung printer.
  5. Insert the Samsung printer installation CD into your laptop’s CD-ROM and then install all the necessary updates.
  6.  Lastly, confirm that your printer is connected to a consistent source of power supply.
