There are various pre-defined prints which are built-in with the printer. To test the printer, you can get the Demonstration Print by pressing SETUP and CANCEL keys simultaneously. You also can get more information by reading the HP 430/450/488 User's Guide page 5-2.
have you tried hooking it up usb and letting vista install it for you? vista has an amazing amount of drivers and its pretty good at getting one to work another thought is trying hp's universal drivers. i test alot of machines and i use the univerrsal drivers for almost everyhing
Your HP 450 should of came with a high-speed, bi-directional connection cable that goes between your USB port printer and PC or Mac. Hewlett Packard recommends the HP USB 2.0 Printer Cable for your printer to Mac.
If you shop the web, or your town, you will be able to purchase the cable. One important thing to do is install the "MAC" HP 450 Printer Drivers on your new MAC first before plugging in the Printer. If you lost your install CD, you can download them free at www.hp.com - drivers and support.
As you know "B" goes to the printer and "A" goes to the Mac.
You can purchase a External JetDirect card from any reputable HP (or computer) agent. This will allow you to plug the 450 directly into the network. The problem with the large format printers not being supported is strange to me. I have never had a problem, simply load the drivers and away you go. If the 450 drivers dont work for you, you can select any of the older drivers (750c recomended) and they will work on the 450c
THIS SOLUTION IM ABOUT TO TELL YOU IS IN MY EXPERIENCE THE EASIEST ONE JUST DOWNLOAD THE WINDOWS XP DRIVER FOR THE HP DESIGNJET 450C PRINTER AND INSTALL IT INTO THE WINDOWS PRINTER PLATTFORM, YOU MAY SEE SOME ANOUNCEMENTS FROM YOUR COMPUTER TELLING YOU THAT THE PROGRAM YOUR TRYING TO INSTALL MAY NOT BE COMPATIBLE "DONT LISTEN TO THEM" JUST CONTINUE YOUR INSTALLATION AND PRESTO YOUR DESIGNJET PRINTER WILL WORK PERFECTLY
