Installing a printer driver on a Windows 7 computer

(Last Updated On: )

Are you having trouble installing a printer driver?

Here are some troubleshooting tipsĀ  because Windows may not recognize and install the driver for the device.

  • Make sure the USB cable from the printer is plugged in to the USB port on the computer.
  • Open your Devices and Printers window and check to see if you have a device listed under “Unspecified.”
  • Right click on the ‘Unspecified Device’ and clicked ‘Troubleshoot’ (see screen shot below as an example only).


  • Windows will try to detect the problems with the device.
  • Windows should eventually ask you if you want to install a driver for the device.
  • Click Yes, Apply this Fix.
  • That should allow the printer to now be operable and ready to use.
