If Windows can't find a driver for your printer, and the printer didn't come with driver software, you can look for a driver on the printer manufacturer's website. Driver updates are often available in the support section of such websites.
To locate the driver, find the manufacturer and model name or number of your printer, and then visit the Hardware and software vendor contact information website. Once you find your printer manufacturer, go to its website and locate and download the latest driver for your printer.
If you find an updated driver, follow the installation instructions on the website. Most drivers are self-installing—after you download them, you usually just double-click the file to begin the installation, and then the driver installs itself on your computer.
Some printers have drivers that you need to install yourself. If you download a driver that isn't self-installing, follow the steps below.
