If you have a laser printer for either your home office or home use, there are some ways you have to consider for setting up your printer properly. If you do not know anything about how to set it up for your home computer, you can follow these practical guides.

Step one: assemble your printer

For assembling your printer, you need to open the box and then find the guide for quick set up. Take it out of the box and get all the important parts. For safety, place it down on a flat surface then assemble the paper tray and install the toners and drums.

Step two: Install the drivers

Before connecting it to your computer, it will be better for you to install the driver first unless the direction says. You can do it by following the instruction which is displayed on the screen of your computer. It is available on the CD so that you have to insert the CD into your computer and follow the instruction it tells you.

Step three: Connect your printer to the computer

After you have already finished your installation, you need to click “start” then “setting.” Then, navigate your cursor to the “Printers and Faxes.” Thereafter, choose “Add Printer” then “Select Local Printer Attached to this Computer.” Then, click “Automatically Detect and Install.” If you cannot find the drivers, choose “Have Disk” then browse it to the CD drive.

Step four: Get connected

After you have done all the steps above, you can connect your printer to the computer by using USB, Bluetooth, parallel cables, or Wi-Fi. Also, you have to make sure that all of the plugs are connected properly to the right spot. If you use Bluetooth for connecting the printer to the computer, you have to open up the Bluetooth manager for detecting it. Instead, you can also use “Add Printer Wizard” and click “Detect a Printer on the Network.”
