Problem installing a printer or running a CD/DVD

If you are trying to connect or install a printer to a computer with its CD driver and you don't see the CD running go to panel control then look where it says "hardware device" and try to click on play all computer devices then you will see the CD running, if not open the computer at the back and try to move the CDs/DVDs drivers' cables.

1. Control Panel Check the installe Printers(If your printer is not there then do this)
2. Disconnect the printer to your computer.
3. Connect the printer to your computer..If your printer is not yet installed it should run on Installing.
4. If it runs thru intallation choose the driver that you have put to CD..

I bought a HP Photosmart C4340 and my computer doesn't list it in the control panel under " Add a printer." I tried downloading the software on my computer with the CD which came with the printer and it won't load. Please help me.

Try downloading the drivers from here
Just pick your operating system first

A tip with hp printers is to NOT connect them until you have the software installed. so if you have it connected just unplug it run the drivers from the website and plug it in either when the installer tells you or when it has finished installing the drivers
