For downloading driver software, please visit the HP site page : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=304431. On this page, please select your OS and click next. Now, there will be option called "Driver - Product installation software" section, expand and select appropriate version you need to install and you will be taken to download page. Before installing, just remove previous software, if installed (recommended).
Go to www.hp.com and click on their "Software & driver downloads" link. Under "select a task and enter a product name and number", pick "download driver and software". In the "for product" box, enter "5150". In the results page, click the "HP Deskjet 5150 Color Inkjet Printer" link. Pick your operating system. After that, you'll reach the driver download page. You have a choice of "full feature" or "basic feature" drivers. Either one will work, but I prefer the "full feature" driver.
There is a windows 98 driver available on the HP website for the HP Deskjet 5150. Go to the main website (www.hp.com) and click on software and driver downloads (about 2/3 of the way down the page). from there click download drivers and software radio button, then in the "for product" box enter your printer model (Deskjet 5150). Then the top option on the right hand column is Windows 98.
