Try changing the LPT port mode in the BIOS- there should be like SPP, EPP, ECP. As I recall there are different drivers for USB and Parallel and I don't think Serial is supported. If you installed HP drivers, Uninstall and use the Windows drivers.

Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.
Try installing the latest Wireless card driver on the XP computer and the LAN card drivers on the other computers except the MAC.

My hp laserjet 1100 doesnt respond when i try to print


Not sure if this will help but if you right click on the printer and go to properties ( when your in printers and faxes ) and go to the ports tab I think it is and un tick the check box that says bi directional support and try it again.

Also what error are you getting thats printed off ?

what lights are on the printer and where are you getting the driver from, if the disc then try the latest driver from the hp website

How to install hp laserjet p1505n network printer in windows 98


I can not find a win 98 driver for your printer on the HP website. DO yu have the instalation disk that was writen for win 98? If not try installing the printer through  the control panel. Either printers/fax or through install new hardware.The first being the preference. Some of the win OSs have printr drivers already installed.
If this does not work out, then the printer has no drivr available for that version of windows and you ewither have to upgrade to Xp or use a different printer which has a driver for win 98.

Connect printer


XP and Win2000 are the same NT platform and are different from Win98SE and if you have the correct drivers installed for each then a single USB cable is sufficient as long as the printer is pointed to that port/device.

Continuous garbage text when connected to pc


In reading this HP forum I have found many other LaserJet 1100 owners who are trying to do the same thing as you.

Many of them recommend various cable solutions from Sewell. When you contact Sewell, make sure to specify your printer model, and ask what specific cables and/or adapters you need to make it work vis USB. They sound quite knowledgeable, and seem to have dealth with this before.
