My name is ***** ***** certified computer professional with over 10 years experience. I will be glad to assist you with this.
I am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.
If your model has the optional Optical(dvd/cd) drive it will be on the right side on the edge. I have included an image at the blue link below.
Concerning the printer cable, unfortunately that has to be purchased separately. I will include an image and description of the cable also.
You can use the laptop and printer without a cable and you can also set it up without the disc by going to the printer website and download from there. Then set up as a wireless network printer. Let me know if you want to do that and I can help you get it working.
Please reply and let me know if you need any other assistance or if everything is good, take a moment to rate my service by choosing one of the stars at the top, then click submit.
Thank you very much!
