Windows 7 not detecting local usb printer problem fix



This may or may not work. Do the following steps first before you do this.

1. Check to see if your usb printer is connected to the computer and check to see if the usb printer is on.
2. Put a usb drive or another device into the USB port to see if the usb port works or not.
3. Plug the usb printer into other ports while it is on.
4. Check to see if your usb cable is working.

If all of these steps failed, you probably have a corrupted Windows 7 systems file.

To verify this. Do the following.

Try to add a printer manually by going to “Start”–“Devices and Printers”–“Add a printer”–“Add a local Printer”–click on “Use existing port”–usb00. If usb00 isn’t showing, you have a corrupt usbprint.inf file
