You really should at least get some sort of monitor calibration device. However, if you can't afford that, you can't help it.

The most common problem when printing is that your prints come out too dark. The most likely problem is that you have your monitor too bright. I'd try to cut the brightness down in half. Then try to print again. You might need to keep lowering the brightness more. But I'd start with that and see how you make out.

Overall the first image looks like it's underexposed. You might have to edit that as well. But first off, try lowering the screen brightness and see what that does to your print.
What is its Print speed a minute?

See if anything in this video helps you. I have had problems getting my monitor and printer to work together even using a colorometer. I saw this and applied his suggestions and my prints are now spot on. I have a lap top and got it to work. Hope it helps.
