Usually, any type of hardware addition to the computer requires the driver for the hardware to be recognized and functional. i.e. A disc usually comes with the printer which carries the drivers(software) to install the printer. If not, then check the website of the brand of the printer that you are trying to install. Usually the website has these drivers/software for each specific model. (Model number near barcode) Also, make sure you have drivers that are compatible to your computer OS(XP, Vista, Mac) Make sure you plug in the printer to the computer. Then plug in the power cord for the printer and turn on your computer. Next, power on your printer after your computer has fully loaded and run the software/driver to install the printer. Follow the steps of the software and it should run.
