Husen39,

You can install a printer without the cd.

First connect the printer to the USB port if that is how it hooks up, this is the most common hookup. Power the printer on. Give the computer, which should already be running, some time to recognize the printer. It will ask for the disk (cd) or if you want to browse for it. Cancel the setup at this time.

Google your printers brand. Go to the company web site. You should see a link to 'drivers and downloads' click on this. A page will open usually with a search engine. Input your model. You should be presented with software for your model printer to download. Follow the instructions and download the software to your desktop.

When done close the internet and click on the software you just downloaded. It should start an install. Follow the instructions and install the software. Reboot your computer and go to the printer setup. Find your printer and open the maintenance menu. You should be able to do a test print at this point. If your printer prints a test page you are done.

I would save the downloaded software to a file which you can easily recognize and burn it on a cd.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

I want to install printer drivers to a laptop but the printer is in the field, how can I install the drivers without having the printer connected tot he laptop.


You don't necessarily need your printer connected to your PC to install the driver. The driver installation is so that your PC can communicate with the specified printer. If you have the install CD you can install the driver and software. Now Depending on your printing machine, some installation CD's will ask you to please connect your Printer. If this is the case, there really is no way around that because the installation directions wont let you proceed to the next step without doing that.
Each printer and its installation software have different protocols. Some will let you install without the printer being connected, some wont.
I hope this information gives you some clarification on your question.

Nico

I disconnected the printer when I moved the computer, then reconnected it and it is prompting me to enter the disk with the software to install. I cannot find the disk. Can I install without the disk, or...


Whenever we are buying any new printer, the printer driver cd will be given by the vendor to install the printer in the Laptop or Desltop.

In this incident, the printer software might have been removed fully without knowing this issue.

The best things is either approach the Local Printer dealer to get the Printer Driver cd and install the same in the machine.

Or it can be donwloaded from the Net, but it will consume more time.

Best solution is approach the local printer engineer who will be having the Driver CD with him to install the same in the machine.

One more request is make the printer, desktop or laptop should be in some annual maintenance contact with local authorized vendor. In this case, if it is under Annual Maintenance Contract, the Vendor should have installed the printer within a short span of time.
