    Does your laptop have USB ports?

    Are you willing to spend a little extra cash to buy an external CD-Rom drive?

Hi!

You can download the printer's driver, manuals and software from the manufacturer's website. Just take note of the printer's model.

The drivers are usually listed on the Support/ Downloads area.

Let me know if you need help further.

How dow I get an install cd to setup wireless printing


1. Turn on the wireless radio on the printer.
2. On your laptop, open the list of wireless networks that you can connect to. You'll see a network named 'hpsetup'. You'll need to connect to this network. Ignore any security warnings and proceed with the connection.
3. Wait for 1 minute after this is done. Then print a network settings page from the printer. It should have an IP address starting with 169.254. This means that the printer is connected.
4. Click on the Support & Drivers link at the top of this page and download the drivers for the Photosmart C4385, and install it.

hi,
you do not need a CD to connect to the printer, what you should do is gain access to the print server. this can be done by asking your network administrator. in a situation where you don't have one or the network is an open one, you have to connect to the printer network, open your ipv4 properties and select obtain an ip address automatically, do the same with the DNS server and you're good to go.
just so i'm thorough, after connecting to the print server / network, you can access your network ipv4 properties by right-clicking on the network icon located at the lower right corner of your taskbar, (the bar at the bottom of your screen) usually in form of two computer monitors. select network and sharing center after right-clicking. a list of wireless network should be available if there are more than one wireless networks in the area. select view status of the print server / network, click on properties, a pop-up box appears. be sure 'file and printer sharing for microsoft network' is checked, double-click "internet protocol v4 (ip/tcpv4)' select obtain an ip address automatically, select the same for the dns server below. click OK you're good to go.
note
once you are successfully connected to the print server, click on Devices and Printers from the start menu, select the printer and allow the drivers to be installed from the server. once that is done, you can right-click on the printer and select set as default. after this all you have to do is connect and print whenever you want to.
hope this helps
let me know if there's anything you don't understand or if this doesn't resolve it.

How can I get my epson sx115 scanner/printer to work and pair it with my laptop with the cd rom instructions ? I put the printer wire in recently and does not print.


Use the setup wizard given in the CD along with the printer.
Check if the printer drivers have been installed in the laptop.
Donot connect the printer before installing the software.
Initially use the CD and follow the instructions on the screen
You will be prompted to connect the Printer after the installation is done.
Connect and then try a test print when instructed.

HP1020 printer that will not print


Is the printer connected locally to this print? If so move it to a computer that has been working ok and try it on that computer. If the problem moves with the printer then the problem is the printer not the driver or computer. If the printer is networked make sure the IP address is not the same as another devise on the network. Also print to it from another computer on the network and see if it prints.

Printer stopped printing


Download the drivers from Epson's Website. You will eventually need to replace your CD drive or at least get it working - you could try inserting a straightened paper-clip into the manual eject hole in the front - Sometimes this will allow it to open normally for a period of time.
