How do I install a printer?
If your printer has a USB, IEEE1394, or infrared connection, contact the printer manufacturer for information or
updates that may be required for proper installation.
Check the printer manufacturer's Web site for the latest drivers for your operating system before proceeding with
installation. Some printers do not function properly without the updated drivers for specific operating systems.
To install your printer, follow these steps:
Click Start in the Windows taskbar, then click Control Panel.
Click Printers and Other Hardware, then click Add a Printer.
From the Add Printer Wizard, click Next.
Select Local Printer, then click Next.
Place a check mark in the box for "Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer", if you are
installing a recently manufactured printer with Plug and Play capability.
Select the appropriate port, usually LPT1, and then click Next.
Select the appropriate printer manufacturer and model.
Follow the onscreen instructions to print a test page and complete printer installation.
If the printer is not included in the list and the printer manufacturer included a disk with a Windows
choose Have Disk, enter the appropriate path for the disk or CD and click OK.
If the printer is not included on the list and no drivers are included with the printer, choose an alternate printer driver that
your printer may emulate. Refer to the manual that came with your printer for specific emulation information.
