Is HP Printer #842C not usable with Windows 7?


To some degree they are correct. Your printer is NOT Windows 7 compatible. However that does not mean that some of the functions may not work. According to HP it can be made to partially work with W7. However for the price of new ink cartridges for this old printer which you may or may not ever get to work correctly, you can buy a brand new printer that will work with W7 and be superior to the printer you now have. From my experience with old printers this may very well be your best solution but it is your choice. I personally would just buy a new pinter. Here is what HP say's about this issue: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01874792&lc=en&dlc=pt&cc=pt&lang=pt&product=60426

Need driver CD for HP3740


Hi

The printer doesn't support windows 98. supported systems are:

» Microsoft Windows Vista
» Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit)
» Microsoft Windows XP
» Microsoft Windows XP x64
» Microsoft Windows 2000
» Mac OS X
» Mac OS 9
» Linux

Drivers are available at this page below:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=401496&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=3&submit.x=8&lang=en&cc=us

Note that there are no drivers for 98 and it won't be simple to get the printer to work with the 98.. I would recommend upgrading to 2000 or windows xp. if your computer is from 1998 it might be better to buy a new computer.

Todays printers don't work with 10 year old computers anymore.

linux would work on the computer for sure, and so would the printer but using linux is quite complex, you would need to get someone to install it for you and make it look as much like windows as possible, its a whole new system..

Let me know if you need anything else.



Thanks,
Ekse

I have just purchased a Deskjet D1560 ptinter,I am a bit of a novice and have an old computer it is a Windows 98 can I use this printer on this computer and also what kind of USB cable do I need?


Drivers for Win '98 may not be available for this printer. Checked HP's website online manual. Nothing is said about support for Win '98. Options- upgrade your computer to Win XP (you might need some hardware upgrades, RAM, Hard disk etc.). Purchase a new or newer computer. There is the possibility you might be able to use drivers for an older HP Deskjet, such as the DJ694 or DJ8xx series. Drivers are downloadable from HP's website.

USB cable: First, do you have USB connections on your machine? If you don't know what they look like, look online, or a computer store salesperson could show you. It is possible your Win '98 machine doesn't have them-
