Re: can't install
1. I didn't mean another printer of the same type. It's likely the
drivers for an HP or Canon or Epson will install. Maybe even for another
Kodak. You'll only know once you tried. However you can install the
drivers without having the printer, because Windows comes with a long
list of supported printers.
2. If there are no disk then (depending on make and model) there's a recovery partition to boot from or a program to make the disk yourself. That should be in the user manual. Or the makers customer service or website knows. Or somebody here knows once you told the details of your laptop.
Most often, such a recovery makes the laptop as it was when you bought it. So you'll lose anything you put on it yourself and didn't backup. You'll have to reinstall all your programs, redo all your settings and restore all your data from your backup.
