Your advice would be miost appreciated. Clare

Hi how can i set up my epson workforce 525 all in one on my computer without the installation cd?


You can download the software (the same as is on the installation CD) directly from Epson.

If you go to the following link, click ACCEPT and download and run the installation program, this will setup your printer on your computer.

Hope this helps.

Trying to set up my hp deskjet 5550 printer to my computer without a cd.


this is not possible. without the CD, you cannot setup the printer.

The good news is that you can download and install the driver/software of your printer without the CD from the below link. Once the link opens, select your operating system (Win xp/vista/7) and proceed from the download.

I wish you good luck.

I lost the cd to my printer and need to install it on another computer.

If you did mention the Operating System installed on the other Computer, I can help you better. Anyway follow the instructions below;
Click on the link [here] After it's opened, click "Select" on the "Select you operating system" menu and select your operating system, and then click "next", again select "Driver" and click "Download" and follow the onscreen instructions, (if you are asked whether you agree the terms and conditions click "Accept" if not, that's better). Download will begin after few seconds.

Good luck.

Turn off computer, hook up your printer as instructed, turn on computer and it will reconize the new printer. It will ask you if you have the cd for the printer. say yes, insert cd and follow instructions. make sure you make it your default printer.
