How to install your printer software on your computer

So you have just bought a new printer and you're raring to go and print just about anything you can find in your computer. Before you amass all available pieces of paper, though, you should first install the printer software. This way, the printing process becomes smooth and easy. The good news is, most software these days will facilitate the installation on its own with just a few clicks from your end.
Here are a few quick steps in order to install your printer software on your computer:
Step 1: Read the installation manual
Before anything else, read the installation manual carefully. This is important. Take note of special instructions like if you need to uninstall a previous version of the software already in your computer or if you need to tweak some settings like turn your virus scanner off.
Step 2: Insert disk
Insert the disk or any media where the printer software is stored to the corresponding drive. You can hear faint whirring and buzzing sounds - this means the drive is reading the disk. Usually, a new window will pop up, displaying all the files read in the disk. Do you see a "readme.txt" or "readme.doc" file? Open that and read the contents of the file. There are usually important pieces of data or reminders in that file pertaining to your printer software. When you're done, look for a certain file that has a icon different from others and a ".exe" extension. This is the executable file. Click on it.
On the other hand, in case the window doesn't pop up, go to My Computer, click on the appropriate drive where your printer software CD is and look for the ".exe" file. Run that file by clicking on it.
Step 3: Installation proper
Once the executable file is run, the installation process will automatically begin. Get the box which came with your printer software CD and take note of the registration code or key. You might need to enter this data later during the installation process or when you need to reinstall the software all over again!
In the course of installation, you will be asked as to which folder you want to save all information related to the printer software, what type of installation (typical, custom or minimum) and which icon to use. It is highly suggested that you stick with defaults. Tweak the settings later based on your preference. What's important is that you install the software properly first.
Step 4: Reboot
More often than not, before you can fully use a newly installed program, you need to reboot your computer first. After rebooting, run your printer software and check if everything's working as they should.
So there. These are the steps that you need to do in order for you to install printer software on your computer. Just remember to do the necessary precautions like scan the software every now and then to make sure that things don't go haywire. Happy printing!

I just moved apartments, reset up my printer/computer, now computer is not acknowledging the printer. When I try to print it will say "connecting, 78% completed) and then nothing actually comes out.


MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR PRINTER SET ON DEFAULT AND THAT IT IS INSTALLED PROPERLY! OR YOU CAN ALSO TRY...UNHOOKING YOUR PRINTER, SHUT DOWN YOUR COMPUTER AND HOOK YOUR PRINTER BACK UP BEFORE RESTARTING TO LET YOUR COMPUTER INSTALL YOUR PRINTER.

IF YOUR COMPUTER DOESN'T RECOGINIZE NEW HARDWARE, SUCH AS YOUR PRINTER, THAN IT IS NOT SET AS YOUR DEFAULT PRINTER!

YOUR SOFTWARE MAY NEED TO BE CORRECTLY INSTALLED, MAKE SURE YOUR PRINTER IS NOT HOOKED UP WHEN INSTALLING SOFTWARE.

SOFTWARE HAS BE INSTALLED FIRST, AND RECOGNIZED...THEN RESTART COMPUTER WITH PRINTER (HARDWARE) HOOKED UP!

I cant print wireless on my hp Laserjet 1015 Printer. I have it like a Directed connected shared printer to my PC. By the way, the operative system of my pc in which i have it connected is XP, and it does...


Hi,

With that, you need to install the printer into your windows 7 computer and windows vista computer.
Even though the printer is installed into your windows xp computer wirelessly and set up as shared printer, you still need to install it on to your other computer because you need to install the driver and other printer's software to maximize the features.

Since the printer is already connected, you just need to run the appropriate installation package, the one that's compatible with your Operating System, and install it via Wireless or via Network. For the correct installation package. You can download it from the hp website and check the Support and Driver's section.

Cheers!

Installing my printer


You need to install the printer driver in your computer. You can use the installation cd that came with your printer. The software will also show you how to setup the printer itself. If you don't have the installation cd, there are drivers available for download in the Lexmark website. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/bLIMIo . Choose the operating system of your computer by clicking on the Microsoft, Macintosh, or Linux/Unix dropdowns found at the bottom of the page. Download the correct driver compatible with your computer's operating system. Install the software. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, place a comment so I can get back to it. Thanks.
