Hello, We recently bought 2 HP Deskjet 1051 printers, all in one, print, scan, copy. I can not install the software into my new computer because it does not have a CD slot. I tried everything on the Internet to download the software. But when I typed in the printer name and number it said on HP website that it could not find this printer. I also tried to follow the instructions on how to retrieve the exact printer information through connecting the USB cord with the printer and the computer. It started to download something but then it did not finish it and it seems like it did not get downloaded. I looked into all programs and it does not have HP printer in it. How can I download the software for my printer successfully? Can someone help me please?

One thing we REALY need to know is the operating system of your machine, what is it ? Without this info, we've got no clue how !
Well, it's too old perhaps, I can not find drivers for it even from Google.

I joined to help you! I bought this, yesterday, and was SHOCKED to see the disc says 1050! Before, even, trying to install the disc, I began searching for 1051 software on the net. When I couldn't find it, I used the 1050 disc, and it works!!!!
Here's a link to the online software: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/P

Hello there, Thank you so much for helping me. I had the feeling that the manufacturer typed the number of my printer wrong and that it instead was the 1050 series. I will try this time to download the one you suggested. Nicola

Hello, Thank you for your reply. My computer is an Acer One with Microsoft Windows 7, its a 10.1 wide, most likely has the less storage in it, it says Windows 7 Starter, I assume that it is for the small computers which have less capacity. Someone else on this forum told me that my printer which says on the printer HP Deskjet 1051 is actually a 1050. So I tried to download the software of 1050 and after clicking the button download it said that this information could damage my computer. So I cancelled the download. Maybe my computer is not designed to download larger information like printers. I know nothing about computers, that's why I'm here asking for help. Thank you.

Sounds like you are looking for the software to install this printer again. I am going to link you to that software as well as include the instructions which will best aid you in adding this printer onto your computer.
