    I am a new user to the Mac mini and I am trying to connect my HP Officiejet printer to my computer. The Mac mini will detect the printer but isn't able to print anything for some reason. Any help/thoughts will be appreciated. Thanks!

    Update the driver. Depending on what operating system you have. I had the same problem with my new Mac book air. You have two options. Go to apple to download the new driver or go to HP to download a new driver. Good luck!

    PS. I ended up buying a new printer as the hp I had was getting old and was still having trouble with lion even after the new driver downloads. The new hp works flawless and is wireless to boot!!
