Question about Computers & Internet

I have 2008 Dell Inspiron with XP pro- no parallel port for an old HP printer.(HP deskjet 1000C) I bought a RC-302 PCI adapter with the assurance it would work. I am computer savvy about installing these devices. The ports did not list as your instructions say. There is no manual on the disk for the 302. What port should I use? Joan McDonald joanm@ccvn.com

    No more USB ports. I really love that old printer as it prints 11X17 paper and works for my house plans. It must be 8-10 years old and still prints like a champ.

Why can't connect my HP Deskjet F4280 to my Dell computer?


Without more information, nobody is going to be able to answer.

If printer has parallel plug (common for older printers), and your Dell doesn't have such a socket, then that's why. Parallel connections are out of fashion these days. You can get a parallel card to add to your Dell and connect it to that.

How to hook up keyboard to my dell Inspiron 530


Keyboard come with two different connection options these days. The old PS2-style (circular with ~5 pins) port are less common on current machines these days. The Dell Inspiron 530 is one of them; you need a USB keyboard or a PS2 to USB adapter. This adapter, http://www.amazon.com/Adesso-Adapter-connects-connectors-ADP-PU21/dp/B00008ZPED , is an example of how you would connect your old keyboard to your new computer. There are USB ports on the front and back of the tower.

If you bought the computer new, it should have come with a USB keyboard.

I hope this helps.

Will all wireless adapter brands and models work in a dell inspiron 580 desktop


If your talking about a wireless adapter that plugs in via a USB port then yes. If you are talking about a wireless network card that is installed into a PCI slot inside the computer, you can check with the network card manufacture for the specs but it should work as long as it is Windows compatible.

Parallel dongle will not work with new system that only has USB connections


The dongle only works with a standard parallel port, not a USB parallel port adapter, It may be possible that a PCI parallel adapter card will work with the dongle. Check it first with the supplier and or software supplier of Designer 1.
