how do i install my hp officejet 6500 e709a series without a disk onto a ibm thinkpad

I have an hp officejet 6500 E709a Series I have lost the installation disk and I need to connect / install it on my laptop. The laptop is an IBM ThinkPad.  The system it has is Microsoft Windows XP  Version 2002 Service Pack 3  Computer Intel(R) Pentium (R) M  Processor (R) M 1500MHz 1.50GHz  512MB of RAM.

 

Can I install my officejet on it without harming the laptop?  If so how do I install it without the disk?

 

Thanks

AC

The drivers can be downloaded from HP here.  I would suggest using the "Full Featured Driver".  There are also firmware and other updates that may be applied.

Download the installatin files from the HP web site and install them.

Printer Hint #1 - Always buy a printer with a display panel for easy configuration.
Printer Hint #2 - Always buy a printer with separate black and separate color cartridges.
Printer Hint #3 - Always buy a wireless printer with an Ethernet port for backup.
Special Hint: There is a 97.2% (and increasing) chance the information you seek is in the User Guide/Manual or on your printers HP Support Page. Remember, Google is your friend.

See my response from nearly five years ago here.  What operating system?  If you are using a recent version of Windows then use the Driver Wizard from http://www.hp.com/go/tools.
