Hi I have problems in stalling my HP 5740 printer tro my HP laptop

Hi there and welcome

To clarify, you have connected a network cable directly between the computer and the printer?

I have installed the CD which came with Printerb but I do not seem to be able to run it?

Are you there Richard?

ok, you cannot connect the network cable like this, you need to connect the USB cable instead Torben.

Connect the USB cable from the printer to the computer and then perform the installation

Let me know the results please
