want to install printer


If you are running Windows XP or Windows Vista, you may simply plug in the printer to the computer, and the computer will install the generic driver.

By default, Windows XP and Vista already has the generic driver installed.

However, if the printer is not a Plug-n-Play device, you will need to load the CD that came with the printer, and follow the installation wizard.

Thank you and good luck!

add printer without a disk.


Windows should detect any new hardware plugged into the system and allow your to begin to install. Connect printer cable to your computer. Then plug printer to power and turn it on. Windows should detect the new hardware and let you install. If it finds your printer click on the pop-up box at the lower right corner of your monitor to begin install. If it cannot find the driver follow instructions below:

type in model (ie., hp psc1210v) of your printer in your browser search engine followed by the word 'driver'.you should be able to locate a place to download the driver. Install the driver, connect printer and turn the power on. windows should find new hardware and proceed to install.
