How do I install a printer?
Always check the printer manufacturer’s website for the latest drivers for Windows
XP Home Edition
Service Pack 1 before proceeding. Some printers do not function properly without updated drivers.
If the printer has a USB connection, the printer should be automatically installed.
To install a local printer, proceed as follows:
1 From the Control Panel, select Printers and Other Hardware, then Printers and Faxes.
2 Under Printer Tasks, click Add a printer.
3 Let the Add Printer Wizard guide you through the installation process.
4 Click Finish.
The printer is now installed.
This procedure applies for most, but not for all printers.
I cannot print
Check that all the cables of the printer are properly connected.
Check the cable to see if the pins/connectors are not bent or missing completely.
Check the manual supplied with your printer for troubleshooting solutions.
Try a printer self test (if available) to see if the printer itself is still working properly. For more
information, please consult the manual supplied with your printer.
Try reinstalling the printer. Some printers have a specific installation procedure. Please check the manual
supplied with your printer.
Check that your printer is correctly configured and that you have up-to-date drivers. If necessary, contact
your dealer.
