How to Install HP Printer Without Disc
You can obtain the software you need to install your HP printer, even without a disc.

If you bought a used printer, you likely got a great bargain, but it is unlikely the printer came with an installation disc. If you bought a new Hewlett Packard (HP) printer, you should have received an installation disc. If you haven't, you can still install your HP printer in no time.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Examine the printer to find your model number. Most HP printers place the model number on the front or back of the printer.

  2. 2

    Visit the HP Support website to download the appropriate drivers. Enter your model number and choose your operating system to download the correct drivers.

  3. 3

    Connect the printer to the computer according to the package instructions.

  4. 4

    Open your computer's Start menu and select "Control Panel," then select "Printers" under "Hardware." Click on "Add a Printer." Use the recommended port to install the printer.

  5. 5

    Select the brand (HP) of your printer, then select the model number. Click "Next" and allow the wizard to install your printer. Print a test page to make sure it works correctly.

Tips and warnings

  • If the test page does not print, double-check all connections between the printer and the computer. Make sure the printer is loaded with paper and turned on.
  • USB (universal serial bus) printers automatically install after you have the driver and connect the printer.
