Question about Compaq A1000 InkJet Printer

Compaq A1000 problem

Good pm. My sister gave me her Compaq A1000 which she was using with Windows 98. I am using Windows XP and downloaded the supposedly updated driver for it (sp15246) which I got from HP website. It still won't work.
Before I could print, it is asking for a modem driver which I don't have since I am a DSL subscriber and WIndows XP automatically picks this hardware. Do I really need a fax modem program to makes the printer work? I don't need the fax, can I disable it? It seems that this is the problem. Or is it? I have installed and reinstalled the drivers but it still won't work. Need help.

    Thanks sir, I'll try that.

    Hello, its me again. Didn't work. Just got tired and gave up. I guess the driver I have downloaded is not good enough for the printer itself.
    The system cannot detect the printer and the printer won't respond. I tried changing the setup since it was it datafax port. I changed it into USB, but still does not work. Maybe you know of a better place I can download the XP driver for this piece of #$@%! Thanks and sorry for the profanitiy, it's just frustration. Thanks again.

Go into the control panel go to system properties then device manager then disable the fax modem card in the list and if its an onboard device then disable it from the BIOS. you dont need a faxmodem card for your internet as its required for dialup connection.

I have a compaq presario 7470 PC which currently has windows 98, Iwant to know how can i update it with windows 7 and how muche it'll cost?

Generally the specs for Windows XP machines are good enough for upgrading to Windows 7 without too much cost.

But, Windows 98 was a bit further back in the history of Windows.

You can go to and use an upgrade advisor to see if Windows 7 will work on your machine.

And, they'll tell you the cost.

I think i converted to fat 32 now laptop is a mess! compaq evo n400c.

You have to completely reinstall the Operating System on your laptop at this point but I would re-install either Windows 2000 or XP since you will have less problem with wireless drivers, printer drivers, plug ins, etc. Make sure you have a valid Windows CD with serial numbers. After that place Windows XP CD into CD-ROM and Reboot. And you dont have to worry about converting to fat32 as Windows 2000 or XP is already a fat32 file system. Read the prompts when it comes up and answer with appropriate answers..
