I used to have a pop up window that showed the ink levels for my HP deskjet 5150 printer, since getting a new computer I don't see that anymore. How can I get that back

It's possible that with your new computer, when you plugged in your printer, Windows could have installed a driver for it automatically.
If that's the case, it would have only installed the driver, and not the utilities that HP puts on the disk. Find your HP Printer CD and install the software on it. Or download it from HP's site to install the utility.

Need software to install hplaserjet p1006

Kindly insert the PROGRAM CD in the CD ROM drive and auto run the aplication CD without connecting the printer,in few minutes of installation progress you will get alert to connect the printer and then printer is configured by OS Above is the normal procedure,
very minute but technical tip is to
connect the printer first and insert program CD for printer in the ROM drive and open device manager and scan for hardware changes ,you will get alert on task bar that new hardware is found and new window for device installation ,click continue with browsing file path for CD in drive and continue installation ,in next few minutes your device shall be ready to use. In case there is problem with installation with CD kindly go to manufacturers website and download windows compatible drivers.

Install printer via internet

If you cant install from CD, Plug in your printer to the laptop, It should detect new hardware, If it's drivers your looking for it's easy enough to go to Device Manager and press update driver, If that doesnt workgo to the brother website and download drivers from there.

Brother should also have an online installer. Check out their website :)
