I am trying to install a printer driver without the disc (lost it) on a Toshiba laptop with Windows 8. I had a virus on my computer and it knocked everything out. I have an HP Deskjet 3051A. Every time I try to download it online, it says it doesn't have a wireless connection but my wifi is working. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

When you download the driver form the Website please save it and don't click on Run.
Save it on the Desktop and than start the installation
Is the Wireless light on the Printer Solid or it is blinking
If it is blinking first you need to install the Printer using the USB cord
Once the Printer installation is done, you can convert the USB connection to Wireless
You can do that by (once the Printer is installed through the USB connection)
Click on WIndows icon (Start Button)
Go to All Programs > HP Folder> HP Deskjet 3510A Folder
And look for Printer Setup and Software
It you should give you three options
Selec the one that says Convert USB to Wireless and follow the onscreen instruction
