Hi I have a 12 year old notebook running windows xp service pack 2 20 Gb hard drive 256 Mb memory with USB 1.1 / Parallel / serial ports. I want to connect a printer, preferably an all in one. I think the problem is USB 1.1 and/or insufficient memory for modern printers. Please can you suggest a possible solution ?
