If You've just purchased an HP printer and want to use it right away and if you are having trouble installing or setting it up here is what you can do to get going . You first have to install the printer and the HP printer software before you can print your photos and documents.
HERE IS HOW IT’S DONE:
The setting up your printer is a short process although it takes approximately 10-15 minutes. And here is what u have to do to kick start your printer?
Once you buy a new printer make sure you have all the accessories ready and up and running because as soon as the printer is hooked up to the computer you will see all the accessories working,
Here is what you have to see before you setup your printer on a network or setup with a USB cable, please check the papers are in, cartridges are installed perfectly, if now the printer wont print the pages and it will show the errors as soon it gets connected to the computer via network or USB cable. Remember one thing if you are connecting you printer on a wireless network make sure your printer is not to far away from you laptop and the router, but if you are trying to set it up through a USB cable then make sure you connect the USB cable before you begin the entire process.
At the beginning you have to Click on the Start button on your desktop screen after that On the search menu bar, type ‘Add Printer’, as soon as you have done that you will have a new dialog box appears and asks which type of printer you want to install,
Now its time for you to Select Add a network wireless or Bluetooth printer, now we are sure your printer is already on so Select ‘Use an existing port’ and click Next.
You have to keep in mind If you are planning to connect via cable and have selected USB connection, then choose Add a local printer. From the list of options available, choose the printer name and then click next. Till now we are doing well so now a new dialog box opens asking you to install the printer driver. Just go to the hp website and install the drivers you can find it by putting in the hp printer model number, now since your drivers are now installed on your computer, now you can open the hp software and its all done.
This can take a while, so feel free to grab a cup of tea and put your feet on the desk. If you haven't connected the printer to WiFi, then look up your WiFi code or grab a network cable. After this step, the computer will connect to your printer. Note that if you prefer to connect the printer directly to your PC or laptop without using the internet, you can use a USB cable. Plug the standard, flat USB connector into your laptop or PC and plug the square USB connector into your printer.
