    no other problems with disks. New laptop with windows vista.

    There may be a defect on the CD that prevents it from being read. Try it on another computer to see if the media is at fault or not. It could also be your drive in your laptop. Are you having problems reading any other discs with this drive?

I have a HP Officejet 4500 printer, and when I try to connect it, via ethernet cord, to my laptop, it won't connect. I did download and install via installation CD, so it's installed. Mind you I...

Hi ericcris10se
If you have trouble with the ethernet connection , try USB . If it also fails there , your device is defective or you have a driver issue . Make sure you have installed the correct driver and prefer the download file to the cd version :

Hello. I have a HP Photosmart C3180 printer and want to connect it to a new laptop and have no idea where the original cd is for the printer. How can I connectand use the printer to this laptop please.


Here is the main support site for your printer:

HP C3180 Support

Click the Software & Driver Downloads link. Enter your operating system from the drop-down menu and click Next.

The list of downloads will be given. You can download a basic driver or full-feature software, or you can also order a new CD if you desire.

Note that the full-feature download is quite large.

What I always recommend is to download the file to your desktop. Once complete, turn your printer on but DO NOT CONNECT the usb cable. Run (double-click) the file you downloaded. Connect the USB cable when prompted by the software. That should get you going.

You might want to bookmark that web page above for future reference.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How i install my printer to laptop

You need to connect the printer to your laptop and install the printer driver.
If you do not have the printer driver installation CD then you can download the printer driver from the printer manufacturer's WEB site.
I cannot give you the link to the printer manufacturer's WEB site because you did not provide me with the make and model of your printer.

Hp pavillion dv1000 cd rom drive

memphisrains -

Sounds as though you may need to reinstall the driver for the laptop's cdrom drive. The easiest way I've found to do this is to download it directly from the manufacturer's web site; In your case, look here:

Download the file to your desktop (file name is sp30367.exe), and run the installation to reinstall & update the DVD/CD-ROM drivers.

Hope this helps!

How do I connect my printer to my laptop if I haven't got the installation cd?

Go to the canon web site, look for the Support tad and go at it from there you will eventually find the place to download the drivers from.
