Hi all.

Forgive for this stupid question, but I am feeling a bit thick this morning.

We have a Toshiba Sattelite Laptop & an Epson Stylus CX3900.

The laptop is W&. The printer wont work on the laptop. Have now seen a Driver Download on the Epson site.

Here is the stupid question....Does the driver download go to the laptop or the desktop computer that has the printer connected to it. Which gets the driver, the printer or the computer? Thanks. PJ

The driver gets installed on the computer the printer is connected to. You cant install a driver on the printer itself. Unplug the printer's USB cable until the driver's install tells you to plug it in. otherwise the install may not work

The driver needs to be installed on the PC you want to print from.
If it is a shared printer connected to another PC, then both PCs will need the relevant driver installed.
