No printers are installed. To install a printer, point to Settings on the Windows Start menu, click Printers, and then double-click. Add Printer. Follow the instructions in the wizard.

Any help please, I can’t use my new printer till now and I want to print many things.

I don’t know where does the error come from to begin solving it.

If you found the following error on your laptop using ms word 2003 to print the document. You can follow these steps:

  • Install the printer driver on your PC
  • Add Printer
  • Select Local Printer, click Next
  • Select Create a new port and select 'Standard TCP/IP Port', click Next and Next
  • Enter the IP address of your printer, click Next, click Finish
  • Click 'Have Disk', navigate to where you installed the printer driver and select the INF file, click Open, click OK
  • The rest of the prompts may differ from printer to printer but should be self-explanatory; the printer then installs
  • Microsoft Word 2003 now correctly sees the printer
