There are a number of possible answers, but first you need to provide more information. Is your printer USB 2.0; did you buy everything as a complete system; is your all-in-one printer also a scanner and fax; is there more than one connection available to the printer, i.e., USB and/or parallel cable???? These are just some of the questions.

If your printer can be connected via USB or parallel cable, decide first how you want to connect it and whether the USB is version 2.0; or 1.1/1.0. Most likely it is 2.0 as are most newer models. If you bought it separately and it's an older model, there is a chance it may not be. As with most USB devices, a USB connection requires that you install the software CD first, then shut down/turn off your entire system and unplug it from the wall. Also, you are likely to be more successful if you unplug everything from your system before software installation for USB. Install one thing at a time. After shut down, wait 30 sec., and then make the physical connections between your printer and the computer using the USB cables, etc. Supplied with the printer. If you decide to use the parallel cable connection instead, the installation sequence is in the reverse order; make all the device connections first and then install the software CD. There are a number of other possible things to be considered if this does not work out entirely as expected, but this is a good place to start. My experience has taught me a good rule of thumb to follow when dealing with anything involving the computer: The very first step should always be to locate the documentation. It is often referred to as one of the following: Help files; User's guide; Operation manual; Microsoft Compiled Help files; User Support Documentation. You can usually find it on the CD-ROM that accompanies hardware devices, the CD that comes with retail software, or the Help folder, support documents, and/or User files that accompany downloaded software from a web site. Sometimes you will find it referred to as on-line Help/or support files which you read over the Internet. . . . . And IF ALL ELSE FAILS, READ THE DIRECTIONS FIRST!!!

How do I add a 3420 desk jet printer to my computer

If your HP Deskjet 3420 Color Inkjet Printer comes with the installation Disk, put the disk into the CD/DVDRom and follow the installation wizard instructions for the installation. You have to attach the USB cable from your printer to your PC USB port. Run the installation disk & power on your printer and your PC will detect & install the drivers & software for your system.

If you do not have the Drivers & Software, download them from :-

Be sure to select the correct OS for your download.

Hope it helps.

I have your Lexmark 3100 Series and I am not able to reinstall it. I get a message : Cannot Install this hardware. There was problem installing this hardware Lexmark 3100 Series. An error occured ...

You must download and install the updated software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
Note:some printer does not work on Vista, if you do not find any driver download for Vista on your model page, that means your model is not Vista compatible.

Lost installation cd for HP 3100 printer. How do I set up without cd?

visit HP and search for their installation software. All you will need to do is specify your model of printer (include designjet, laserjet, etc) in front of the 3100. Then just select the operating system you are using (windows xp, vista, or mac OS X are the most common).
