NEC SuperScript 870 Printer

My new computer has Vista as its operating system. When I tried to use the disk to load the drivers the computer kept rejecting the drivers. Does anyone have an answer to this problem. NEC has not issued a new driver for either XP or Vista but the driver will load on an XP system. Craig

First open your Control Panel and click Printers. Now click “Add a Printer”. Specify if you printer is Local (plugged in to your computer) or on the Network (plugged in to a different computer). We are assuming you have a Local printer.
Next specify the port. Usually you can just take the default here. Now you will be presented with a list of available printer drivers with manufacturers on the left and printer models on the right.
Under manufacturers choose “HP”. Then on the right scroll down and find the “HP LaserJet IIP”. It will probably show up just after the “Laserjet IIIP”. Click next and follow the instructions to complet installing your printer.

You could try use the Windows XP SuperScript 870 driver or you could install the HP LaserJet III printer driver. It should work with your printer, but may have limited functionality.

Nec superscript 860 printer driver

Hi Richard,
As you might all ready know, this printer is not supported by Vista,  pasible solution: - if you have another "old" computer, you could install your printer on that, and share it, that way you can printe via the other computer. in case you want drivers for all other software, here is the link.

Prints what looks to be bar code

I have the same problem. I have replaced both toner and photoconductor, did not solve the problem. I have been using XP for some time before my printer started acting up.
