Need Windows 98SE Drivers for HP 1420 Deskjet Printer

Hi, My husband (who refuses to buy a new computer with a newer platform) today purchased an HP Deskjet D1420 Printer. Everything connected ok, but the CD that came with the printer only has drivers for Windows 2000 and up. I tried HP "Customer Care", but they no longer support W98SE. Believe me, we are not computer experts but were wondering, before we return the printer, would anyone have any suggestions on how to overcome this problem? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

Windows 98se video drivers

not for 98SE i believe. a great OS but MS most likey deleted those from their servers long ago. if you can find someone else who has a system with 98SE you may be able to copy and install them from them. someone who is really old and smart "CE" maybe could program them:) for you but, you should have backed up your system and drivers before this repair was needed

No drivers came with the 4GB HP usb flash drive v125w I just purchased. I can not find them on HP web site. Need for Win Xp. Help

Windows 98 has no support for newer USB flash-drives.

Windows XP has full support for newer USB flash-drives -- if it cannot find the driver on your 'C:' disk, it will access the Internet to download the drivers from Microsoft's web-site, automatically.

I am considering buying a new computer. I have a

The good news is that your Canon iP8500 printer is Windows Vista compatible. Driver page for them is here:

More good news, the Epson Perfection 1650 scanner is also compatible with Windows Vista.

It would also appear that your HP Laser Jet 5mp printer is compatible with Windows Vista:

Whether or not to get a Dell or HP is a preference thing. The biggest thing you have to ask yourself is, how much are you wanting to spend on a new system? Both vendors are fairly comparable as far as hardware and support. The biggest thing I should mention is that, ensure that when you buy your system, to tell whomever you are buying it from that you need Windows Vista 32 bit. Not all of your components were compatible with Vista 64 bit.
Best of Luck and hope you have lots of fun with your new system!
