Can't install old HP Laserjet 1100 using a USB cable

I have an Acer Aspire 5315 laptop and I am trying to install an old HP LaserJet 1100. To use I had to purchase a USB cable. For some reason my laptop will not recognize the USB cable. When I plug in the cable to the USB port it automatically searches for the cable driver software but it doesn't find any. I didn't realize that a cable has a driver and the cable didn't come with a disk. I don't even know who manufactured the cable. On the actual cable it says "USB Shielded High Speed Cable 2.0 Revision 28AWG/2C+24aWG/2C E188601-U Type CM". I have searched the internet for cable drivers but am not sure what to look for exactly.

    thanks. I have also tried that. Windows Vista does have the driver for my printer already installed but it still doesn't work when I manually install it. . I think I may need to buy another cable and try it just to make sure it isn't the cable. I know for sure that the printer works.

USB cables are just that. No drivers are needed. What it is searching for are the drivers for the device that is plugged in via the USB cable.

Follow this link to find the drivers you need for the printer on your operating system:

There should be a driver for this printer included with the Windows Vista Operating system. You can use the Install new printer function to install the driver for your model 1100.

Installed usb to db26F converter to use printer


Ok reinstall as Administrator, use "Compatibility mode" for install and the run .exe, also run software as Administrator. too. Often these devices, USB - Serial Ports are NO GOOD for a printer. Either install a real Serial Port. or get a new printer. Windows 7 will NOT help either, it doesn't like older equipment.

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.
