1. Go to Devices and Printers.
2. Click Add a Printer in the top toolbar on the Devices and Printers window.
3. Select Add a local printer.
4. If your printer is a USB printer, select port USB001. Otherwise, choose the appropriate port and continue.
5. At this point you should be able to click Have Disk and point Windows to the drivers you do want, the ones on the CD, for example. They should install without incident.
6. If you look at the Devices and Printers window now, you may have an icon indicating a faulty printer, and an icon indicating a working printer. Your printer is the one that doesn't work.
7. Right-click the faulty printer and select Update Drivers.
8. Tell Windows to search automatically. It will also search your computer and locate the drivers that you just installed successfully. If it asks you to choose a driver, choose the one that appears in a deeper directory.
9. The install process may begin all over again, but it should work this time.
