If you are using a printer on a USB port, you must configure the PORT if XP won't find it. Run the Printer Setup Wizard as a printer connected to your PC. When windows xp doesn't find it, choose to CREATE A PORT, and choose to create a local port, and name it for the printer you want to install. Follow the prompts and you should be good to go.

I cannot print anything from my computer i got no disc drive for my espon stylus sx105


If the drivers are available for your printer and you have a generic OS driver installed, uninstall it then disconnect the data cable. The generic driver will install with Windows "plug and play".

Navigate to http://www.epson.co.uk/Home-and-Home-Office/Printers-All-in-Ones/Home-printing/Epson-Stylus-SX105/Drivers-Support;jsessionid=EDF17857D68DB083F3B38755B90282DC.acc5-new to download the drivers for supported OS versions. This download will not include any third-party software that is on the CD included with the printer. Install as Administrator for Vista and Win7 - make sure to use the correct version (64-bit if that is your OS). If your OS is compatible with the software on disc, external optical disc drives (DVD writers) can be obtained for $50 or less.

Make sure that the USB cable is fully connected when the software prompts you to connect it. Make sure the paper is in the tray and can be picked up by rollers. Insert all of the ink cartridges properly and make sure that the alignment process has finished. Are any error messages showing on the printer?

With USB printers, try a new cable and a different port. Try a direct connection if you have a print server or USB hub connected. For Windows, check the USB drivers and make sure the ports are not disabled for security or power savings. (The first is in the Device Manager; the second is part of the advanced settings from the Screen Saver.)

I hope this helps.

I have an hp desk jet 3322 printer no cd need to install and configure can u help?


What Operating System do you have? If you have 2000 or XP here are the drivers:

Drivers for XP or 2000


Drivers for Vista + WIndows7
The alternative driver is Deskjet 3600

Or

HP itself for Drivers for Vista + Windows7

Installation
Also note once you get the driver if you are using a USB cable to connect it to the PC, that you install it like this:

1. Make sure the USB cable is not connected to the PC but connected to the Printer
2. Install the driver
3. When prompted then plug the USB cable into the USB port on the PC to complete the installation process.

Brother DCP165c Driver installation Problem


I would boot in safemode (hold down f8 immediately when it starts (when it says Starting Windows xp), then delete all printers (associated with this) in device manager.

remove any printer software as well (add remove programs or start programs (printer program name, remove software IF listed),

also remove the port you are using in device manager be it lpt or usb. if the drivers siuggests installking without it connected do so, otherwise, just restart and it shoudl start installking the hardware amnd software it finds. be sure you have the correct drivers ready as well>
Good Luck

Computer won't recongnize printer


The problem is with the device driver. Every piece of hardware has a corresponding software program called a device driver to let Vista/XP know it is there and what it does and how to do it. If a disc came with your printer then that is what loads the device driver. However, with USB devices you must load the driver with the USB cable unplugged from the printer. Then once the driver loads then plug in the printer...nobody knows exactly why but that is with all USB devices. So unplug and load the disc, then plug and see if it works. You may have to reboot..if that does not work let me know as they are a couple of ways to get it to working. Good luck and keep me updated. Pls rate this solution.

Toshiba e studio 163 drivers for XP


Try looking here:

http://www.eid.toshiba.com.au/

You need to know if it uses the GDI print system or the optional print board.

Browse the driver section and you should get there.
