Re: I need a driver for printer

Extract the zip file to a new folder on your desktop or somewhere else easy to find. Open the new folder, read any instructions (readme etc) If there is an application ie setup.exe then double click it. If there's no setup.exe then you need to find the properties of your printer in the hardware manager find the update driver option then select the location (the new folder) When you are happy the update has happened you can delete the new folder

How can i install tvs msp455 printer in my computer ?

If you are using an older system (win 98 , me, nt or 2000) you may need a software to unzip the file.(eg WinRAR download)

Once files are unzipped in a folder, go to add printer in control panel, and when asked for driver chose: "I will chose the drivers to install".

If instead the problem is that your drivers are not working, then download drivers here after completing a free subscription.

I have not got the cd for installing the printer and i cnt install how can i install

Look on websites and try and download the software.
Your first port of call should be on the manufacturers website .. i.e .. if it's a Canon printer, visit the Canon website and then look for the drivers. They're usually hidden somewhere in a link called 'downloads' 'drivers' or 'support'.

Failing that, try websites such as - just sign up for free then download the software/drivers for the printer if they are there.

You can also try a google search - i.e 'drivers for HP Laserjet 1010' or whatever your printer is. Also try other keywords such as 'free (name of printer) drivers'. There's every likelihood that you WILL find the drivers for your printer.

Many drivers are 'zipped' (compressed) and must be 'unzipped' first. That just means extracting them. To unzip drivers you need a program called Winzip or Winrar on your computer. You probably will have Winzip installed.

Try downloading the firefox web browser ( - it only takes a few minutes. Then search for your printer drivers using Firefox. When found and downloaded Firefox will tell you that they are downloaded - click on 'Open' to begin the installation process.

The exe file gives you the driver, but there is no .exe autoinstaller.

You have to manually install the printer and load the driver using this path:

Settings -> printers -> add a printer -> add a local printer -> LPT1 port

once there ignore the drivers list and press "Have disk", then locate the previous unzipped driver location and press ok.

You should get your printer installed and ready.

Hope it was helpful.

Lexmark z605 can't install from downloaded driver

Hi, The best thing to do is to uninstall everything to do with the printer and leave it disconnected then restart your PC. Once it is going again plug in the cable to your printer making sure that the printer is all powered up and ready to go. Windows should find the printer and ask for the drivers.
Make sure that you have downloaded and "unzipped" the files (if they were zipped) as the installation will not start if they have to be unzipped. Make a new folder to unzip them too if necessary.
Let us know how you go
