There is no official driver for your OS.

Installation & troubleshooting notes

  1. First before you conclude that a printer driver has not been installed correctly it is usually a wise move to turn off the computer and then restarting it.
  2. Then try to double click on the printer software setup, if it does not prompt you to Run the program, then it did not install correctly.
  3. Try to recheck the printer model and software number and redo the download process again.
  4. Once you get access to it and you are certain that it is the one, start the download process and wait for it till it has completed the downloading.
  5. The setup for the software will appear first on your screen once the download is done.
  6. Double click on the setup and prompt the program to start running.
  7. If it allows the running process to begin then be sure that it will complete the installation process. Give it time and do not interrupt the installation either through a power cut or by using your computer in multitasking.
  8. After the installation is done try to open the program and check whether it’s in functioning mode.
  9. If it’s functioning then connect the printer cable and start enjoying your printing.
