I just purchased a new computer HP, and I don't know how to add my old printer HP. Before I was wired but now I'm wireless. Please help


What kind of printer is it? How did it hook up to the old one physically? Was it a usb cable or an ethernet cable like the computer?

Hi, Had my printer on old computer, when I went to put in on new computer the alarm light comes on and nothing else works.


Before connecting the printer to the new computer you will need to install the drivers using the printer disk.

If the printer disk is too old, or if you have misplaced the disk you will need to go to the printer manufacturer website, find support page, enter printer model, and download updated driver.

Connect printer only after installing driver.

If the printer is too old, it may not be compatible with Vista or newer operative systems.

My printer, a Lexmark x6570 would not work with my new Mac. So I took the printer to the Apple store and now it won't connect with my old computer or more importantly our laptop. Can you help?


Are you using the wireless networking functionality or USB? I'm assuming the old computer is a PC. Select "Start", "Lexmark", open the installed software to troublshoot connectivity for the USB connection.

If using the wireless connection, go into the start menu to the Lexmark software, select the wireless configuration tool.

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.
