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!

Connecting hp photo smart 7350 printer to northgate computer


Hello,

You need to install the driver of your printer that works with the operating system of your northgate computer. The driver is in the CD/DVD that came with your printer.

After installing everything, you can add RadarSync to your computer to optimize your computer's driver (eg. keeping them updated to avoid from some problems, and running automatic updates so that you can avoid from the headaches of doing the updates manually).

I hope this helps.

If you need more info, please let me know.

Have E Machine ET1161-05 trying to install Kodak ESP6150 computer does not find printer


While installing the printer just switch off the printer and try to install the printer driver completely, When the software will ask you to connect the printer then only switch on the printer. If this way still you are getting the same problem then connect the printer in other usb port or use different USB cable

I need to connect a 34oo series lexmark printer to a dell comp. xp


Not sure how much I can help you.

*Turn computer off.
*Plug printer into a port on the back of your computer. There are very few ports so you should be able to find one that makes your printer plug. Plug printer into power strip/outlet.
*Turn computer back on.
*Keep printer off for now. During installation it should tell you to turn the printer on.
*Put the CD that came with the printer into the cd/dvd drive. A menu should appear. You want to "Install" or "Setup" your printer. Something along those lines. Follow the instruction from there.
*After successful installation of the printer restart the computer.

That is as basic as I can make it. I hope this helps.
Thanks.

I need to hook my printer back to my computer i lost the disk


Go to Brothers web site and look for downloads or drivers. Download the drivers for your model and install them. Also if it has any software/manuals that the model uses you should find it there as well. I you already have software installed I would uninstall and reinstall the software you download.

I need a installation disc for Lexmark X1270 printer


hey there,

To install your printer to your computer you would need an installation CD but that is not the only way you can add your printer to your computer. You can download the drivers from the following website. Just select what version of windows you have and you will be able to download the drivers and install your printer successfully. I am 99% certain that this will solve your problem. Here is the site
http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi. I hope this answered you question alright. Good luck

I have a home computer, and a laptop my lexmark printer is already installed in my home computer and know i want to also use my printer from my laptop


If that is the case you need to install printer sharing. Although you have to turn on the home computer every time you want to print. Another option is to use a print server wherein you do not need to have the home computer on. You just have to have the print server and the printer on to print from the laptop and or the home computer at any given time. If you would like to setup the printer sharing kindly message me.

How do I get my Kodak Easy Share Printer #7330 to print pictured from my Compaq computer?


first install the printer onto the computer, downloading the drivers or using printer disk.
If your printer is already installed on your computer and working you do not need to install it , skip this step.

Then download pictures onto computer, using USB cable.

open downloaded picture by double clicking with left mouse button.
Once you open the picture with picture viewer open file menu and chose print, or click the small printer sign.

If you use oprint preview iit may be easier for you to change printer settings to print the pictures.

The computer can not communicate to the printer after installing the software.


Did you install the software first, and then plug in the printer? Or did you connect the printer and then install the software? For most newer USB printers, you need to install the software before you plug the printer into the computer, then at a certain point, their software (not Windows) tells you when to connect the printer.
