What happened to the CD that came with the printer?

guapo's correct. You should have received something to install the printer, and being wireless, you'll need to make sure you have the ability to communicate with it (i.e. - a wireless connection)

You need to follow the instructions that came with the printer (Setup Poster?) & you need to use the disk. Generally, the software has to be installed BEFORE the printer is connected.

What comes with HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One Printer series - J611

If you have problems with the Disk you can download and install the software from the official HP website. And hopefully that will work for you.

Is your Windows7, 32bit or 64 bit?
I have 2 links, one for each. If you don't know what yours is, you can just get the 32bit version, it will work on both.

32bit: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...

64bit: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...

Just click download at the top and run the software, it should install everything you need.
