Re: no disk to reinstall printer

If it's a PC, you should be able to just plug it in and windows will detect it. If not, go to Control Panel, Add Printers and then choose it from the list. If it asks for the drivers, you can download them at

I NEED TO INSTALL THIS PRINTER MFC-7420 on my laptop which do not have cd rom player

You have several options to do this:

- If you have spare PC, you may copy the content of the CD to a USB disk and install from the USB disk on the laptop
- Or you may just insert the CD on another computer on the network and share the CD-ROM drive by going to My Computer-Right Click on the CD Drive and click share. Now on your laptop go to My Network Places (usually on Control Panel) where you can see the shared CD drive from your other machine.
- Or if your laptop has internet access, visit Brother website and type your printer model to download the driver installer on your laptop machine.

Good luck and hope this helps.

When I install the D7260 printer using the CD-Rom supplied it works fine. Then after a few days only the top two or three lines of the first page are printed and, after a long pause, the sheet comes out....

Many issues are caused when the HP Photosmart is connected to computer using a USB cable before the HP Photosmart software is installed on the computer. IF you connected the HP Photo smart to your computer before the software installation screen prompts you to do so, you must follow these steps.

Troubleshooting common setup issues :
1) Discoonect the USB cable from the computer.
2) Uninstall the software (if you have already installed it.)
3) Restart you computer.
4) Turn off the HP Photosmartm wait one minute then turn it on.
5) Reinstall the HP Photosmart software.

If your installation is incomplete, or if you connected the USB cable to the computer before prompted by the software installation screen, you might need to uninstall and reinstall the software. Do not simply delete the Hp Photosmart application files from your computer. Make sure to remove them properly using the uninstall utility provided when you installed the software that came with the HP Photosmart.

To uninstall from a Window computer and then reinstall
1) On the Windows taskbar, click Start, Settings, Control Panel (or just Control Panel).
2) Double-click Add/Remove Programs (or click Uninstall a program).
3) Select HP Photosmart Driver Software, and then click Change/ Remove.
Follow the onscreen instructions.
4) Disconnect the HP Photosmart from your computer.
5) Restart your computer.
Note : It is important to that you disconnect the HP Photosmart before restaring your computer. Do not connect the HP Photosmart to your computer untill after you have reinstalled the software.
6) Insert the HP Photosmart CD-ROM into your computer's CD-ROM drive and then start the Setup program,
7) Follow the onscreen instructions and the instructions provided in the Setup Guide that came with the HP Photosmart.

My lexmark all in one printer wont install since i got a new e machine computer--i tried the disk and it stops at drivers--tried to do by computer add a printer without disk and still doesnt work

If you connect and turn on the printer then turn on your computer it should start the found new hardware wizard. don't do anything until or IF it asks you to install the disc, the make sure you direct it to find the files under the correct drive letter which is usually "D" or "E" .Good luck, .Dana

My brother 2070W acts like it receives the data, but it never prints

When reconnecting the USB cable to the computer or laptop the cable must
be reconnected to the same USB port it was previously connected to. Otherwise, Windows will install another copy of the printer
driver and the printer will no longer print. Most computers have two or
more USB ports. To prevent this problem from occurring we would
recommend labeling the end of the USB cable to indicate which USB port
the cable must be reconnected to.

To resume printing the printer driver should be removed then

In Windows 2000 open Start, Settings and Printers. In Windows XP open
Printers and Faxes. Double click one of the Brother printer icons to
open the print queue. If print jobs are listed click Printer and Cancel
All Documents. Repeat this process for all copies of the Brother printer

Delete all copies of the Brother printer driver by selecting the printer
and clicking File then Delete.

Once all the copies of the Brother printer driver have been deleted
click File and Server Properties. Click the Drivers tab. Select the
Brother printer from the list and click the Remove button. Click Close.

The printer driver can be reinstalled using the Brother CD-ROM or
downloaded from the Brother Solutions web site. Check the CD-ROM to
verify it lists the operating system installed on your computer. If your
operatingsystem is listed insert the CD-ROM and install the printer driver.Before installing the printer driver disconnect the USB
cable from the back of the printer. Do not reconnect the USB cable to
the printer until the installation prompts you.

If the CD-ROM does not list the operating system installed on your
computer the CD-ROM should not be used to reinstall the printer driver.
The newest version of the printer driver is available for free download
from the web site below.

How to install the downloaded driver:
1. Download and save the Windows 2000/XP driver to your desktop.

2. Once downloading is complete, Double-click the file to open the
WinZip Self-Extractor. In the Unzip To folder section, change the path
to c:ro, click Unzip and click OK. Click Close to close the WinZip

3. Open Printers or Printers and Faxes.

4. Click Add Printer or Add A Printer.

5. Click Next on the first screen. Select Local printer. Remove the
check from Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer and
click on Next.

6. Select a USB port and click on Next.

7. Click the Have Disk button and type the directory c:ro.

8. Click on OK.

9. Select the model and click on Next.

10. Select Yes to use the printer was the default printer then click

11. Select Do not share this printer or Share as and click on Next.

12. Click on Yes or No to print a test page.

13. Click on Finish to complete the installation.

Do give my solution the highest rating if it solves your problem. Thank you for using fixya.
