Thank you, ***** ***** you can help me

I know how frustrating it is for you, but in your case, you need a printer driver installed on your computer to use the printer.
Please consider following the instructions below:
1. Download and install the printer driver from the link below.

2. Connect your computer and printer using the same connection thru a USB or WiFi connection. Use the printer display panel to access network settings and your WiFi to connect it on your wireless network.
3. Follow the driver installation setup to add your printer from your computer.

I have a chromebook, is that where the problem lies
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Have we finished the conversation. I see no more replies from you. It would be better to talk but I don't want to pay out any more money on top of what I have paid for the printer.

I am so sorry to hear that. May I know the brand and model of your Chromebook?

HP chromebook
