Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

If the HP printer was in wireless mode with the Acer computer, it may have been unable to print by USB, period. I have rather a recollection of that being a fact when dealing with HP printers with both WiFi and USB printing capability.

Are you printing through a local WiFi router to the HP printer?
Or are you printing from the computer, wirelessly, direct to the HP printer?
