Ok, but anyway I am still to help you, Is it the problem goes to the manual installation you need or the driver instead?
Printers used to be the bugbear of computer users.
They were difficult to set up and ornery in operation. That's no longer the
case and it's likely you'll have no problems getting your printer up and
running. This is particularly the case if your printer comes packaged with
your computer system or if you stick to well-known brands such as
Hewlett-Packard, Epson, Lexmark and Canon.
Connecting a printer involves four steps:
- Unpacking your printer, removing any packaging material and installing the ink or toner cartridge. Refer to your
printer's instructions to guide you.
- Connecting the printer cable to the printer and to the back of your computer.
- Connecting the printer's power cord to a power outlet.
the printer driver and any additional software. The printer driver is a
piece of software that tells your computer how to interact with your
If your printer comes as part of your system, you may find that its driver is already installed. In that case, all
you'll need to do is unpack it, connect the printer cable and power cord and switch on your computer.
geekgirl.tip: Get a cable
word of warning: Make sure you purchase a printer cable! Often, this is
not included in your computer system, despite it being an essential
item. You'll need the correct type of cable for your printer: If it's a
USB-enabled printer, you need a USB cable (note, the new USB 2 cables
work with older USB 1 printers, too; so if in doubt, get a USB 2
cable); if it's a parallel printer, you'll need a parallel cable.
Make sure you get a cable long enough to reach easily from your printer to
your computer. However, you should avoid cables longer than 10', because
long cables can cause problems with communication between printer and
computer. Try to position your printer so a 6' (or shorter) cable can make
Follow the wizard
If your printer's software has not been pre-installed, read any installation instructions that accompany your printer and
follow those instructions.
If no instructions are provided, follow this procedure:
(Note: This procedure applies to printers which use a parallel
connection. If your printer uses a USB connection, you should connect it while
Windows is running and it will be recognised.)
- Make sure you have your original Windows CD-ROM handy. You may need it.
- Switch the computer off.
- Connect the parallel printer cable to your computer.
- Connect the printer's power cord to a power outlet.
- Switch on the printer and the computer.
most cases, Windows will detect that you've attached a new hardware
device and it will launch the Add Hardware Wizard and attempt to search
for the appropriate software. If the wizard doesn't launch and Windows
appears to ignore your printer, you can launch the Add Printer wizard
yourself by clicking the Start button, selecting Control Panel,
clicking Printers And Other Hardware, and then clicking Add Printer.
- If the printer is directly connected to your computer, select the Local
Printer Attached To This Computer option. If you will be connecting to the
printer via a network connection, select the Network Printer option, then
wizard will first try to search for any Plug and Play devices (these
are components that should, by rights, automatically notify Windows
when they're first connected). If the wizard discovers your printer, it
will display further instructions to complete the installation. You may
need to restart your system to finish.
