What is the driver problem you're having with the printer? If you installed an HP one from their site and its not working, I'd recommend removing it, then either try the same one again or a more generic printer driver from the HP driver download page.

Im looking for HP laserjet P1505 installer


Hi,

You can download the installation driver and software from manufacturer's support website by clicking this link

On the page which opens, select the operating system of your computer (Windows Xp/ Vista..) from the drop-down menu and click the "Next" button. Then download the required drivers and software.

The list of available drivers will load only after selecting the operating system of the computer.

Click on the "+" sign next to the list to expand the list and view details. To read the detailed installation instruction, click on "More info" link under each driver/software.

You can also order a replacement installation disk on the page which opens.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

  • Troubleshooting Setup and Install If your device is not recognized:
    • Verify that your cable is USB 2.0 high-speed compliant.
    • Ensure that your cable is connected correctly. Remove the USB cable, look at the end of the cable, and then match it to the pattern on the USB port. Make sure that it is not upside down. Insert one end of the USB cable completely into the USB port on the HP device and the other end into the back of the computer.
    • Check that the peripheral is turned on. Peripherals will not be recognized if the power is off.
    • Ensure that your USB cable is no more than 15 feet or 5 meters in length.
    • Check that the USB port is enabled. Some computers ship with disabled USB ports.

Can't print to old applications


The issue your having is with the Operating system compatability. The HP 3055 is compatible with 98, ME, XP, Window 2000 and forward. It won't do windows 3.1 or 95 well even if your computer will, the disconnect comes when the software is sending old print commands to a new style print driver.

Your best hope is to download and install the HP Printdriver for Windows 98 and try it as it's the most tolerant of old gear. Download the PCL 5 as the PCL6 is too new and probably not going to work.

As an alternate try to download each of the printdrivers for the differnt era windows and try them. It's a hard problem that may not have a solution other than upgrading the accounting software.

If it's simply a connection problem, they do make a USB to Parallel addaptor which may help you with the physical connection issue.

Here's a link:

Hope that helps you.
