I have an older HP DeskJet 722C printer and an Acer Aspire 5050 3242 laptop. Is it possible to hook up this printer?


I would say, it quite possible. If, the printer is a USB connection then it is only the matter of assuring the drivers for the printer will work properly with the operating system. You may obtain the latest drivers here HP DeskJet 722C printer

If the Printer happens to use the outdated parallel port, I would suggest to use an adapter, you can review the ones currently available online here Parallel to USB printer cable

It is always possible to use old peripherals on newer machines, it is only the matter of researching the internet to rather any available adapters are on the market to maintain older printers.

I hope this is helpful!

I want to connect my Dell inspiron 1525 laptop (basic vista)to HP 7550 printer. What type of usb cord do I need, and are drivers available online?


Assuming this is a Photosmart 7550 printer and not the 7550 Plotter, this is what you will need for connectivity. To connect printer to PC, you will need a standard USB A/B cable... one side is a male A connector and the other one a male B connector. As far as the drivers are concerned, you will not need to download any. Vista already has a compatible driver for your HP Photosmart 7550. HP recommends selecting the drivers for the Deskjet 5550 when installing your Photosmart 7550.

Try a powered USB hub, this will boost the power in the USB curcuit.
Also ensure that in Device Manager, USB Root HUB, Power Management tab, that the option to let windows turn off the device is unchecked.

Problem printing from Dell Inspiron 1720 with Vista Home Premium to Epson Stylus Colour 1160 using Nikkai USB to Parallel Convertor. Cable supposed to be plug and play. Any pointers?


You pretty much said it when you mentioned "Other than buying the cable in the first place" I have never successfully used a USB to parallel converter cable on any system. My suggestion, asisde from getting a true USB printer, is a parallel port card

Conecting an older HP parallel printer to a new computer


Better if you get USB HP printer to use with it. The only way to use that what you have it to get a printer server that supports parallel cable and connect the print server to your router using Ethernet LAN cable.
