Vista problems with NEC SuperScript 870

I recently bought a Sabrent 6-Foot USB to DB25 Female Parallel Converter Adapter Printer Cable for my NEC Superscript 870. I connected it to my Dell Inspiron 530s running Vista. I tried to install the driver for the printer but could not find it. I followed the solution on this site and installed the driver for HP LaserJet 2P. But when trying to print the test page it gave me an error and didn't print. Any suggestions? I would appreciate it.

If you load the printer drivers from a Windows XP install disk (in the i386 directory), that worked for me.

I just bought a new computer and the connections don't match up. what do i do? I have the Eltron LP 2443PSA Thanks, Mike


I beleive your printer only has a Parallel interface and your new pc does not. You will need a USB to Parallel cable.

HI there,

Go to the page below, choose your Operating System and you will be taken to the page with Drivers/Software for your printer. Download the software choosing to SAVE it to your Desktop. Double click on the installation file you downloaded and installation will begin.

DRIVER FOR PRINTER NEC870 x WIN7 x64


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.

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.

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.
