Hi bohughes. I am assuming you have Windows XP; please report back with a new comment if its a different OS.

Download drivers from:

Make sure you turn your printer OFF before you install the drivers, and do not turn it on until the driver installation program asks you to.

The above Epson site also has other useful software you can download for your printer.

If these instructions are not clear enough for you, please post a new comment asking for further explanation.

Connecting HP printer to laptop

Win Vista and Win 7: Click on the Windows logo button, (Start), then in the side flyout menu, click on the small Down Arrow.

My printer is already connected to the computer but doesn't print.

Click Start go to Printer & Faxes:
- Check that your printer name is there or not.(if not, your printer is connected to computer but the driver is not installed. Find the driver disk and install driver)
- Check that you set it as default.
- Make sure Printer is online( if not, it shows "offline" word under the printer name)
Try these if still not printing:
- Restart your computer.
- Turn off your printer completely, unplug power suppy, wait for 15 seconds and turn on again.

Hope this will help. Thanks for reading

I dont have installer driver hp 695c

You can download a driver from the manufacturers website which is located at Click on support and then download drivers/software. Enter the model number of your printer and follow the prompts to download and install the drivers. Do not connect your printer to your pc until the drivers and/or software is installed.

Good luck!

We have purchased a cannon cp660 and we have no instructions on how to work it. So if you could maybe email me instructions that would be great. my email is thanks paul

If you have an installation disk, just put that in and your instructions will be right on the disk.

If you DON'T, plug the cable that connects your computer to your printer in. Your computer should look up the software you need to install the printer. From there just download the installer it recommends.

If it doesn't recommend any software, you should go to Control Panel, click "Add a Device" located under "Hardware and Sound". Follow the instructions from there.

Hope this helps!

I bought the HP Deskjet 5650, but I'm not sure how to install it to my home computer.

First find the installation disk that came with your printer in the box. Install the software by placing the disk in your CDROM of your computer and then follow the instructions on the screen. when the software has finished installing, connect your printer to the computer with your USB cord and the computer will automatically do the rest.

Some operating systems already have the driver for your printer and the software is not necessary. To check and see if your computers operating system already has the necessary drivers, just connect your printer via your usb cord. Your computer will recognize the printer once the cord is connected and you will see a pop up message around the right hand corner of the monitor screen that says "new equipment detected" and the computer will do the rest.

Good luck!

Try to connect with laptop

Make sure that your laptop have the printer software/driver installed in it, Printer needs driver that allows it to communicate with your computer/Laptop. Sometimes drivers need to be updated.

But before installing driver you need to uninstall previous version installed in your laptop then after restarting laptop you can re-install new driver. Visit this link to install driver for Lexmark X2670. Go to download & start downloading.

I cant connect my acer aspire 5338 laptop to our family printer and i want to print things i have tried to connect it but im not sure what else to do?

If there is a disk, you need to use it to upload the drivers for the printer.

If the printer has already been installed on your comptuer, uninstall it first, then use the disk to re-install it. Be sure to disconnect the printer from your computer. Use the disk to install and plug in printer to computer when instructed to.

If you are trying to connect remotely (through a network) the adminstrative computer (user) must approve this.

Please let me know if you need futher assistance.

User's Guide does not contain software installation instructions.


I would recommend you to reinstall the driver from the below link. also if you click on Technical support - How to install downloaded driver it will show you how to install it.

Also in the related links there's user guide for the Printer. it has instruction on how to configure network on your printer.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
