Printers, like many other computerDevices, for proper operation require the installation of special programs - drivers. After all, the printer can be released much later than the system installed on computers.
In this case, this system "does not know" how to manage this printer.
To avoid such problems? Manufacturers and release drivers that explain? System? How to deal with this device.
You will need
- Normally, when you buy the printer, the driver is attached to theIt on the CD. This disk is also required when installing the driver. If you lost it, or else for some reason this disk is missing - this program should be downloaded from the site of the printer manufacturer.
If you do not have a driver CD? Will have to look for them on the manufacturer's website. On the body of the printer there is always information about the company that released it and about what kind of model this printer is. With the help of search engines find the site of the manufacturer. On this site you need to find your model in the sections "user support", "file archive", "download". After you discovered your model? You will need to select the system for which you are downloading the driver. After selecting it, download the program offered by the manufacturer. It should be noted that often the drivers that you can find on the sites? Released later than the drivers that came with the equipment when purchasing. This allows the manufacturer to correct some errors of previous versions, use more modern printing technologies, increase the speed and make the new drivers more informative. Always, if you can, download the updated drivers from the manufacturer's sites.
Now that you have a program, or a compactDrive, run the installation either by double-clicking on the downloaded file, or by simply inserting the disk into the drive. The installer will ask you to select the folder to which its files will be installed. Most often there is no need to change the path to where it is installed by default. When the program asks you to connect the printer, connect it to the USB port of the computer and turn it on. The installation will continue automatically.
Sometimes after installing the drivers, you must restart the computer. Do this if the installer asks you to do so.
