Dear joelsworld,

Can you please check the model of your printer?
I looked more carefully under the broader category and saw mp210.  So here is the link for the driver---i gave you the vista version, but you can see it gives other versions of OS.

Cant properly install my printer hp 900 on windows xp. it doenst show on add/remove program and device manager bit there is an icon on printer and fax folder


Hi baaycollarin,

  1. Please follow the below procedure for successful installation of your printer :-
  2. Unplug your printer from the power , also remove the USB cable from the computer by which the printer in connected to your computer.
  3. If there is any application software that you have installed with regards to your printer please uninstall it.
  4. After you uninstall the application and you are sure that you don't have any other software related to printer still installed, make sure that you restart your computer.
  5. Once you restart your computer , switch on the printer by plugging it in the power socket and then connect the USB cable to the printer at one end and the computer on the other.
  6. When you plug in the USB cable into your computer , you will find that the computer has detected a new device and then it will ask you to find the appropriate drivers for it.
  7. Then you need to select the option which says ' choose a specific location etc...' then click browse and insert the CD/DVD that came along with the printer in the CD /DVD drive and then find the folder which contains the drivers or just select the CD Rom icon and then let the computer search for the drivers in the CD.
  8. This will make the computer detect the driver which is most appropriate for this device and you will be asked if you are OK with continuing the installation , choose continue.
  9. Lastly when the installation is complete, you will get a pop up at the bottom right of your screen saying that your device has been installed and is now ready to use.

Hope this helps...:) Let me know in case you have any queries.

Need to install my hp F4580 printer to my new net book...cannot use CD is there any other way?


Hello,

I have two options that I can recommend for you.

1. Download the HP F4580 from the Hp website.

Here's the link: Click Here F4580 PRINTER DRIVER ...

It will take you to a screen which looks like this:

Select your operating system running in your netbook. Then select driver.. Then run it. Then follow the on screen instructions. After the installation, your printer will print.

2. The second option is to use an external dvd/cd drive. It could be connected to your netbook by using a usb cord. You can buy it from any computer stores..

I hope this helps.

I have a netbook computer which comes without a cd drive and I want to install my printer


There are two methods to install the printer driver.
1. Purchase or borrow an USB external CD/DVD drive connect it to the mini laptop's USB port and install the software from this drive.
2. Use a different computer and copy the contents of the CD to an USB memory stick and then plug it into the mini laptop's USB port and install the software from this USB memory stick.

Doesn't burn or play CD's or DVD's..it doesn't recognize the CD which is to be burned


check the my computer icon to see if your cd drive letter is listed. usually it is your D drive. If it is there and won't read CD's drive is either dirty or needs to be replaced. Pick up a CD drive cleaning kit.

Cant download VersaJette M300 without disk


M300 Vista Driver Image (ISO CD must be made) http://downloads.versacheck.com/download/m300patch/cdvjm300.zip

There are two ways to use the .ISO file: 1. To burn the .ISO file to any CD/DVD use a CD/DVD burning software like Nero, Roxio etc. Then run the CD/DVD to install drivers. or 2. Use a Virtual CD/DVD Drive Software which will allow you to use the .ISO file without burning it to a CD/DVD ROM. This software will create a Virtual CD/DVD drive which can open the .ISO file and let you use it just like a regular CD. Here is a list of some Virtual CD Software titles available: 1. Microsoft Virtual CD Drive Tool Free from Microsoft 2. ISO Buster 3. Deamon Tools 4. Undisker can open and install ISO files-free trial period

Epson Stylus SX100 installation CD is not read


Hello,

There are chances that the installation CD is faulty itself. If it is the original manufacturers installation CD, and appears to be free of scratches and smudges, this is most likely not the case. I would insert a combination of at least one other software CD and one recordable CD in the CD drive of your computer CD/DVD drive to see if these discs are being scanned, read, and show data on those CDs. We want to pinpoint the problem, to make sure that the hardware failure of CD Drive is not to blame, but it could be.

A Disc can spin around in an optical drive, and have laser read issues, and still end up being faulty, and eventually need to be replaced.

If you determine that you need a new Printer installation CD/DVD, and all other data discs work fine in that optical drive, you can download printer driver software directly from the manufacturers web site.

If you provide me all the model and manufacturer details of your new printer, I can locate this direct download link for you, and provide that to you.

Best of Luck!

Installing a printer


Click on this link. Pick your operating system & download your drivers. http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:435:0:0
To be honest if your driver software was running before you had the CD burner repaired you should not need to re-install Your printer. However if you think you need to re-install please uninstall previous software. Open control panel, open Add /Remove Programs. Find your Printer & un-install it. Re-start your Pc & hook up your printer & re-install the software.
We at FixYa try to help people. So if there was a problem with your CD burner why would any repair site need your whole computer including your printer? You don't need to answer that.
The average CD burner, brand new runs between $20.00 & 30.00 & I'm showing a DVD/RW burner that also burns CD's.
