Hello lamanr,
It's simple.  Go to the manufacturer website and search for the printer drivers (i.e if the printer is a HP then goto www.hp.com).  after you get the drivers, all you need to do is install the drivers, then add a printer in the printer properties.  Or if you would like further assistance, you can choose me as your tech in Live Chat and I can walk you thru the process.

Bought a gateway tower at a garage sale


you cannot. you must restore it with the disks that came with it(if any)
if none exist, you will have to buy a version of Windows operating system and install it to the pc. then you will also have to download any hardware drivers, bios, and software updates for THIS computer model from the gateway website online and install them before this pc will work properly. Else you will have to take it to computer shop and ask them to restore it for you which will include the cost of Windows, and the labor to get it running with those drivers i mentioned. Depending how old the pc is, what Windows you need, this will cost at least more than buying a new one, unless you have a friend who will do it free or cheaply. Windows cost from $50-150, the shop may charge up to $150 or more to install everything in order to make it work. Mayber more if hourly. You can buy a used PC online much cheaper or even a new computer for $300-400. Decisions, decisions.

You'll need to buy & install a network-card to add Ethernet networking to the computer.
Then, use an 8-wire Ethernet-cable to connect to your router.

I just bought Acer Aspire Netbook, I have forgotten my password and cannot get into anything. What can I do??


If it is the logon-password for Windows, re-install the Operating System, and set a new password.

If it is the power-on password, find the original sales-receipt, and telephone ACER, to prove that you, and not a thief, is in possession of your computer, and ACER will assist you.

Dc5100 bought from garage sale


If you have an Win XP installation disk simply insert on the drive, turn off and turn on the computer and run the win XP installation.

If you only want to get rid the password go to there:

Just bought a Gateway computer, trying to add a printer. Have the install disk, but it wont run in the CD drive. Trying running Autorun using all the drives I could find listed C,D,F,G,H, & I. No...


I am assuming that the printer is USB so the printer will not work without the drivers installed.
Could you please list what model the printer is?

There are a couple of solutions to look at for this.

First would be to determine with drive is actually your CD ROM drive. I would try putting an normal audio CD into the drive and looking through the drives listed to see whch one says "audio CD" That would tell you which letter you need to go into to run the install CD for your printer.

The second would be not to use the CD at all and just download the newest software from the manufactures site (assuming you have an internet connection) usually you would go to the manufactures website and try to find a support or help section. Many times they then have an area where you can specify you product and what you need, you follow that and find the software and/or drivers for your model printer.

How i registry my computer


Do you mean register the computer? If you bought it from a garage sale, chances are it's old and you will not benefit from registering it.
