If you don't have a CD, you can download printer drivers from the manufacturer's site.
We frequently do this when installing printers on computers when the user has lost the CD

You can go to the Support site for whatever brand printer you have, enter the Model # and navigate to the page for your printer. There will be a driver available for download to install your printer.

I lost the cd for the printer and now i dont know how to install it in my computer without the cd

Go to check for driver downloads, your make and model, operational system, make sure printer is plugged in and on, so the software can detect the proper communication port.

Need to know how to setup print without cd

Installing a printer without CD is done in the same way as with the CD but you will have to browse the driver from a location on your PC. Steps:
  1. Download, save and extract (if applied) the desired print driver from the maker of your printer.
  2. Go to Printer setup window (in case of Winsdows operating systems, you need to check devices and printer)
  3. Add a printer
  4. Select the printer port, (insert IP address if printer is networked or point to the correct port in case you use other connection type)
  5. Click next and it will request for the printer model and driver. Now select, "FromDisk" and browse to the folder you extracted the files to. Step 1
  6. Follow the normal instalation wizard.

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.

HP Laser Jet 1320 Printer installation

Just downloading the PCL5 driver was not enough for my computer. Maybe it is enough for other users' computers. But in addition to downloading the drivers, i had to also download and install the "HP Laserjet 1320 plug and play print driver solution" at the bottom of the driver list. Save the file to your desktop, double-click it and follow instructions to install, then reboot. Then when I checked my printer list, the HP Laserjet 1320 was there. I printed a test page, and now i am good to go. Hope this helps.

Did your system detect the new printer? In installing it, you need to install the printer software first (CD first) without the printer attached. Just plug the printer to USB port when the installation wizard to you to do so
