Win 7 Pro x86

its USB right?

Check all settings sleep, eco etc

Press a button on the printer made sure its awake and ready

If its not connected or on etc on boot windows might not register and you can not see the object in devices and printers, and when you connect the USB it will pop up after a bit

Bit crazy but common

I take this is home setup or very small unrestricted office
