I Don't Have a Driver for my Printer

Question I have windows '98. I want to install a new printer, but i do not have the disk for it and it is not located in the list provided in windows. How do i install my printer?

Answer: Two options,

  1. Search the web to try to find the driver for the printer there. The printer manufacturer probably have drivers on their site. Failing that try typing the printer name into a search engine and see if you can find one that way. You might also try WinDrivers and DriverGuide.
  2. Second option if you can't find drivers for that printer is to find out what other printers are similar and see if you can get it working with drivers for that similar printer.
