Welcome marielll.
We'll need more info first. Do you mean the printer isn't recognized? It is shown in devices and printers and won't print? Is it attached to your computer or on a network or Home group?
Please fill in your spec with this tool: System Info - See Your System Specs

Windows 7 Printer issue

Well it is connected to the network on my laptop. I was trying to set my default printer and somehow accidently deleted my access to change anything all together. When I try to print from my laptop it asks me if I want to install a printer, then it gives me the error message.......

Is this printer physically attached to your laptop then?
What is the error message?
Are you using Win 7's Home Group or a standard network. What OS does the computer have that the printer is attched to if not the laptop?
