Hello sshaw0018,
I would go the the printer manufacturers website to get drivers for your particular printer ( for example, if it is an Epson.. try epson.com) Make sure you get the drivers for your specific model and for your operating system ( Vista, Windows XP etc..).. Most, if not all manufacturers have a support tab on their website and offer driver downloads.. Check it out and good luck..
Regards,
Rick

Cant use my printer, i dont have my driver anymore, due to computer virus, i have to reformat my desktop and i need to install again my printer


If you purchased the printer new you probably got an installation CD. Load your CD and follow prompts. If not you may be able to find your model online and download software.

I have a web cam i bought about a week ago i misplaced the installation cd is it possible to install it without the cd ???


If your windows does not recolonize it alone or the website does not have the driver i would call and ask for a new cd. Those are really about your only options. Hope everything works out for the best my friend

Lost install cd


The reason your computer doesn't recognize the adapter is because you don't have the drivers that come with the CD.

So, in order for you to get this working, click HERE

Then, download the driver by saving it to your disk. If you don't have internet access on that computer, you can download those files to a flash drive, or burn them to a CD. Whichever you prefer.

Good Luck :)

I have misplaced the software CD that came with my printer and so cannot install to my new laptop, can I find instructions on the web to use as an alternative? If so can you direct me to site. Cheers


Go to the manufacturers website, if its hp go to hp.com , click on thier support & troubleshooting link, check the drivers box and put the model number found on your printer into the model number box. http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html?pageDisplay=support .
it will then ask you whick operating system you want the drivers to work with. select the appropriete operating system and hit the arrow next to the box you just typed in to start the search.
download the one marked "driver" to your desktop so you can find it afterwards.
double click on it to open and follow the prompts. printer will be installed

Uninstall any drivers that are partly installed reboot. plug in printer do NOT turn on. Install drivers after drivers loaded a popup should appear asking you to connect printer. turn on printer ensure usb cable is connected. Computer should then find printer hope this helps

I wouldn't worry about turning the printer on and connecting it, that's just to avoid picking up generic drivers before you install the ones from the disk.

It's possible your installation CD is faulty. Follow these steps:

1) Download the latest drivers from the address below and install them.

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/eu/gb/en/model_top/monolaserpri/hl2170w_all.html?reg=eu&c=gb&lang=en&prod=hl2170w_all

2) Connect your printer with pc off and turn both the pc and printer on. Windows should automatically install the drivers. If not then open device manager and install from there.

I hope this helps,

erch.
