If you computer does not have CD/DVD drive the you can install driver from your external harddrive (Pen drive etc).
just find one of you friend who has computer with cd drive then copy all files and folder into your external storage device and plug it in to your computer then install it.
you should be good to go now.
if even this is not possible then download driver from manufacturer websit in to your computer and install it.
Good luck

How do i install or connect my printer on my PC

HP printers have come with an installation CD for as long as I can remember.
- Insert that CD into your computer,
- Start the installation (either via the auto start after you put the cd into your computer or manually browse to the setup file on the cd)
- Follow the steps of the installer and make sure you choose the correct options which apply to you.

Hope this helped!

-Insert the CD into the computer and open the icon named setup and follow the on-screen menu.
-After the setup is complete, connect the printer and power it on for it to install
-If it connects you are done , if not check the cable connections and make sure it displays on the printers and hardware part. You can check this by clicking start and pointing mouse to that icon on windowsxp.

It is always good to print test page after installation.Good luck.

How do you connect the printer

NOTE: To ensure that the software is installed correctly, do not connect the USB cable until it prompts you to connect it

Insert the green Windows CD into the computer after it
has been turned on and started up.

Once the USB prompt appears, connect the USB cable to
the port on the back of the HP All-in-One, and then to any USB port on the computer.

1. Lower both the paper and the print cartridge door.
2. Connect the power cord and adapter.
3. Press ( On button).
4. Open the print cartridge door. Make sure the print carriage moves to the center.
5. Remove the tape from both cartridges.
a. Hold the cartridges with the HP logo on top.
b. Insert tri-color cartridge in the left cartridge slot and the black cartridge in the right cartridge slot . Make sure you push the cartridges in firmly until they snap into place .

7. Close the print cartridge door.
IMPORTANT: Wait a few minutes while the alignment page is printed automatically.

8. After the alignment page is printed, place it face down on the glass as shown in the picture. Close the lid.

How do i connect my samsung nc10 to a printer

@Shakthi_v770: His computer does not have a cd-rom drive. It's a netbook! Furthermore, what if the printer in question was an older model with parallel interface? You can't just assume everything is plug-n-play. You need to ask some relevant questions first.

Printing through wireless


if you had the printer before using the USB cable. then you changed it to wireless, try the ff:

1. re-insert the CD the came with the box, the cd that you used to install the printer Software to your computer.
2. after inserting the cd, it will give you option "add a device".
3. click on that to install the printer driver for WIRELESS.

note: the reason why you cant print, is mainly because the printer driver you have is still for USB connection. so inorder for you to be able to print, you need to install a printer DRIVER for wireless... That should WORK..
