Please read this post then provide some details.  What printer model? What operating system? Do you have a 32 bit or 64 bit version?  Click here,  enter your printer model, then select Drivers and Software.  Next find the appropriate drivers and updates and download them to your computer then install them.  Typically the printer should not be connected to the computer until you are instructed to by the installer.

Please read this post then provide some details in a new appropriate thread, it does not appear your issue has anything to do with needing an installation CD.

 

What printer model? What operating system? How is the printer connected - USB, wired LAN, Wireless LAN, bluetooth? Are there any error messages on the printer or computer screen?

 

Running the diagnostics at http://www.hp.com/go/tools may help resolve the issue.

Finally - enough detail to actually answer a question .  You can download the drivers and other software and updates or order a replacement CD from HP here.  I would recommend the full featured driver here.

Re: I lost my installation CD. How do I install my HP printer or All in One?

i tried downloading the driver installation file. i have both downloaded successfully the full and basic installation file but upon extraction, it displays error message of "Cannot open output file" and aborts extraction. What does this mean? So now, basically my printer works just because of the plug and play driver installation, but when i need to scan/copy, i cannot, because i do not have the full application. where can i get the full working driver installation? my OS is windows XP 32-bit. TIA.
