If it's because your laptop does'nt have a paralell port you can use a Paralell to USB adapter cable.
Have a look on EBay.

    Here's the User Manual for it too:

    Takes a little while to load but then you can save a copy to your PC.
    Just click the disk icon next to the printer icon at the top of the file.

Installing Lexmark Z32 on e-machine by gateway


The only drivers available for this printer are for XP or lower.. Try connecting the device to the computer, and using Vista to search for a compatable driver.. I believe it should find one that is compatable with this printer..

Computer does not recgonize my hp printer, running windows vista home edition 32-bit oprerating system


firstly:
  • have you installed the driver for the HP printer,if not do so.
  • is the HP printer Vista compatible, it should say in the literature that came with it .if its an older printer probably not compatible.
  • follow the installation directions fully ( plug the usb cable in when it asks for it etc).
  • use a different usb cable as it may be faulty.
  • check the usb port with another item such as a memory stick to ensure it is working or use another port.
  • remove any printers installed prior to trying to install HP printer and reboot the system.
hope this is of help to you

I have just connected a HP Deskjet 3940 to my new acer computer and it is not printing. I went in print then options and clicked on a few things but still not working. Have new cartidges in 22 and 21


un install the printer driver,reboot ,windows should detect new hardware ,and then insert the cd that came with the printer select have disc and re-install the software.
if your acer has vista you may need to get a vista driver for it,or worse the printer is not compatible with vista.

good luck

We have a new computer. We used to have our hp officejet All-in-one on our Gateway ME. We were wondering if we could install our All-in-one to our new Gateway Vista???


You'll have to go to the HP site and download the Vista drivers for that printer, but it should work. Install the software first, then plug the printer into the USB port!.
