    When I went to the HP page and selected deskjet 450ci, there is no windows 98 option listed so the HP page offered no help.
    Anything else that you can suggest to fix my problem??

Looking for printer software hp656c for my laptop windows 7 (32 bit)


Thats quite an old printer, it should work with a generic printer driver for basic text printing, otherwise try some of windows 7s built in HP injet drivers. I doubt you will find a specific windows 7 driver for this model, its out of support life

Device Driver Sofwtare will not install for HP


Hi, I have the exact same printer, with the same problem (Windows 7 Home Premium). Yes, the HP Windows 7 Software/Driver doesn't work for this printer.

But I was able to find a successful workaround. Follow these steps in Windows 7:

1) Click on the Windows Start Button and click on "Devices and Printers"

A window should pop up showing your devices and installed printers (if any).

2) At the top of this window, click on "Add a Printer"

A "Add Printer" dialog box should pop up with two options on what type of printer you want to install.

3) Choose the "Add a Local Printer" option. Ignore the small print under the option.

A window will now come up prompting you to Choose a Printer Port.

4) Choose "Use an Existing Port"

5) In the drop down box next to "Use an Existing Port", choose one of the USB ports. That entry should say something like:
"USB001 (Virtual Printer Port for USB)"

6) Click the "Next" Button

Now an "Install the Printer Driver" window should appear.

7) In the Manufacturer's Box, find and click on "Hewlett-Packard"

8) In the Printer's Box, find and click on "HP Deskjet 4200 Series"

9) Click Next

10) Follow the instructions on the screen to install. If Windows gives you the option to replace the current driver, then go with it.

11) Done! The printer should work. But everytime you plug it in, you may receive a notice from windows that the driver could not be installed. There are ways in Windows to hide that specific notice. But in any case, the printer should still print when you want it to.

I have just purchased a Deskjet D1560 ptinter,I am a bit of a novice and have an old computer it is a Windows 98 can I use this printer on this computer and also what kind of USB cable do I need?


Drivers for Win '98 may not be available for this printer. Checked HP's website online manual. Nothing is said about support for Win '98. Options- upgrade your computer to Win XP (you might need some hardware upgrades, RAM, Hard disk etc.). Purchase a new or newer computer. There is the possibility you might be able to use drivers for an older HP Deskjet, such as the DJ694 or DJ8xx series. Drivers are downloadable from HP's website.

USB cable: First, do you have USB connections on your machine? If you don't know what they look like, look online, or a computer store salesperson could show you. It is possible your Win '98 machine doesn't have them-
