Hey, I bought a Dell Printer from Amazon. The package was neat and everything look perfect. Yesterday I sat down to install the Printer to my computer using the CD I got along with the printer but for some reason the installation collapsed a couple of times. I took out the CD, cleaned it and then again tried but the issue is same. I use a Windows 7 PC. Can anyone tell me what is wrong or is there something I am doing wrong?
Step 1 : First of all, go to Start > Control Panel and then tap on Hardware & Sound> Devices&Printers.
Step 2 : You can add your Dell printer as a network printer, wireless printer or Bluetooth printer. For adding your printer, you just need to tap on “Add a printer”.
Step 3 : After this, tap on the option “Add a local printer” for moving into next interface i.e., “Choose a printer port”. And then, you have to select a local printer port. Then hit Next. On the Add Printer wizard, click on radio box that is next to “Use an existing port” and then hit Next.
Step 4 : On the next screen, you have to select “Manufacturer” and “printers”. Then hit Next key. If your Dell printer’s name is not available in the list then tap on “Have disk” to install the Dell printer driver from the installation CD. Although you can also click on “Windows Update” to see extra models.
Note: If you don't have Dell Printer Driver CD then you can install printer drivers from official Dell printer website - https://www.dell.com and in case you don't know that how to install Dell Printer Driver without CD then Click Here..!!
Note - If you want to install two printers on the same operating system then your system will redirect you to set Dell printer as the default printer when the installation of the second printer gets finished. Also, to set your Dell printer as the default one, simply press right click on Dell printer and then choose the option “Set as the default printer”.
