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


Hello,

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 can't install my printer on my laptop with the CD rom


Hi,

What OS are you using? If you are using a Vista operating system then it should automatically install itself most times. If not check the usb connection and make sure your ports are working. Is your CD ROM working as well? Please confirm that all these is working and then try reinstalling.

This should work.

Hp5550 not printing


Hi,
The first thing you need to do is make sure you have the correct driver so that you can re-install your printer. Then you need to go to your Start Menu and select Printers and Faxes. Delete any printers that you don't use or no longer have, plus any instances of the Deskjet 5550. Go into your Start Menu and select All Programs. Look for the Deskjet 5550 and put your mouse on it. Look for the Uninstall link then select it. Once it has finished uninstalling the program restart your computer. Insert the CD that came with your printer and follow the instructions. Your printer should now be re-installed and working. I hope this helps you solve your problem. Good luck!

Trying to connect a printer to my new Gateway computer


you need to install the 64 bit version of the drivers.
Try browsing your cd and look for 64-bit drivers. If not you will find the drivers in the site , here is a link to the 64 bit version of the vista drivers, download the driver that suits your printing needs (PCL or postscript, depends on fonts, I would go for PCL if your don't know)
