Hi Julie,

Why do u keep requesting your computer to install the printer, just command it... Ha! Just kidding...

Remember if its a USB printer then you need to install the software first & then connect the printer, switch it on and wait for the OS to autodetect and confirm Installation.

Now here's how its done. You should have the CD that came along with your printer.
Go to Control Panel > System here click on the Hardware Tag within that cick on Device Manager button in the list see for anything already installed under Printers& Faxes Section. If so wrtie it on a paper & close the window without saving any changes.

Now click on the START > Settings > Printers & Faxes.

Here click on Add Printer and follow instructions on screen NOTE: Read each instruction very carefully.

When prompted for installation disk (If your printer is not listed in the pre-existing drivers' list) then insert that CD I mentioned earlier, in the CD drive and click OK. The rest is done automatically. Restart the PC when prompted to.

I think this should solve your problem.

It could be because you're not logged in as Administrator or you don't have admin rights. Log on as Administrator so you can add or install a printer

This willallow to setup the initial software and allow you to configure the initialnetwork settings. 2. Choose where to install thesoftware and which components of the software to install. Typical componentsfor HP printers include the network utility and project creation software. Ifyou already have software for project creation, you don't need to install this.You won't need to install either component for other computers in order to usethe printer. 3. Turn on the HP printer whenprompted. Don't connect it to a computer unless directed by the software.

Hp 4215v


Hello,

I would suggest that you disconnect the usb cable from the printer. Then, if the printer was previously installed and stopped working, uninstall all programs related to the printer through Add/Remove Programs or Programs & Features in the Control Panel.

After restarting the computer with the printer still disconnected you can follow the directions below to download the latest drivers.

To download the drivers you can go here. When the page opens you will need to choose your operating system. Then, from the Drivers section I would choose the full feature driver.

Once you click that, you will see a Install Now button that will allow you to immediately install the software and/or a Download Only button that will allow you to download the file for later installation.

Either option will have a link below them that says View Directions which can be used to get step by step instructions for installation of the drivers.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.
Thanks

IOGear multi-function USB print server


The direction of the GMFPSU01C will never tell you that you need to create another printer driver. Because, once you install the MFP Utility of this print server, you will have an automatic Copy1 icon of your printer once you successfully, detected the print server and once you successfully connected to the Printer.

Since, the computer is not detected the printer on the network, here are the things that you may do:

1. Make sure that the printer driver is properly installed in the computer. and make sure that the printer is working when directly connected to the computer.

2. If you can't detect the printer, disable your FireWall or any anti-virus program that's running in your computer.

3. Uninstall/reinstall the MFP Utility. If the CD is not working correctly, use the driver from the Website. Here's the link: http://iogear.com/support/dm/driver/GMFPSU01#display

Install driver without printer?


Most softwares have a custom installation mode you should be able to enter into at the front screen, allowing custom installation (and allowing username changes). If it is a lap top, why can't you install it using network connectivity, in explorer settings, allowing you to connect to other computers, hence avoiding going to her home. It is done over the internet, and it should recognise the printer attatched to her pc at home, and sove your problem. Alternatively, she can invite you on to her pc through same process.
