    This is far too complicated for me.
    I don't have a clue what you mean!

  • mstowellsmit Mar 24, 2011

    What is a software driver?
    What are drivers???

  • ikkenom Mar 31, 2011

    If you were the President of the United States of America (heaven help us if you were!) then you would have a "driver" to control and maneuver a limosine to fulfill your desire to be taken anywhere you wanted to go. In the world of computers, a "device-driver" is some software that controls and maneuvers the printer, to make the printer fulfill your command to "print" a file on the specific printer. Usually, the "device-driver" files are stored on that CD-ROM that you have misplaced. Or, you can download those "device-driver" files from the web-site created by the manufacturer of the printer.

    Too complicated? Telephone DIAL-A-GEEK or THE GEEK SQUAD, and pay them to install software onto your computer that will interface with your printer to make it "print" when you request your computer to "print".

Hi mstowellsmit, to "Update the Driver / Software!"
First: "Turn-off the 'Printer'
"Go to this "Website!"
Fill-in necessary information.
ie: Model #, Brand, and or Operating System...

"Select the [Drivers] you need from the "List."

"Download the Drivers!"

Next, "Turn-on the 'Printer."

If the "Drivers updated the printer; then it should be 'recognized, by the computer!"

"You can: {Check the Printer}.

Click on the -> Start Button -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Printer

"Or" -> Start Button -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager -> Printer

Right, click to open the "Properties."

!Important: "Take a 'moment to rate the help', so I can get 'credit' for the work.

Thank you!" - paul7of9

    This 'comment' is for FixYa! So my understanding is; -10 is {subtracted} for "Not Helpful: Solutions!" But! When the "Solution is Very Helpful! = 5 or < LESS!" ? Is this "Correct"!? I have another ?Question? Do a number between a (100 to 1000) people respond quicker, and more to "Solution that do not help!" In comparison to the "Solutons that do?"

    What are Drivers?

    "I Prove My Point !" If you don't know? Of course its not going to be Helpful!"
    The CD that you do not have! Would have "Loaded the Drivers to make the Printer work with the computer!!!"

Access the manufacturer's web-site: http://support.hp.com
Enter the model-number of your printer, and do the search.
Select your Operating System (Windows XP? 7?).
Download the device-driver.
Install it.
Print a "test" page.
