The back of your computer does not have a conventional paralled printer port. If your printer has a USB connection, then you will want to use either of the two USB ports, located directly under the LAN port. #6 in the illustration below.

If your printer uses a conventional parallel port connector , you will need an adapter like the one shown at the bottom of this post. You can get these at Amazon, Newegg and probably Best Buy, but I have not checked there.

Best wishes!

Printer only works on one USB port


You can swap thye ports areound on Vista, but Xp is more difficult. What happens is the USB is converted to an LPT port like lpt1 or 2. This remains in the device manager list because it is usally a fairly permanent object. USB printers are rarely totally USB, like other items. So windows fails to recognise the printer on other ports or, it will require a new installation for that port. With Vista you can go into Device manager and reassign a USB port to a printer port. XP is another ball game you might not want to play in.

I need a LPT 1 port for a HP895 Deskjet 895Cse printer.


If you have an USB cable and a spot on your computer to plug it in...it is a much better way to go. The computer will detect it and just work so much more easily.

go to control panel, and look at the ports to make certain they are enabled..if not, remove them, then do a scan for hardware changes, and then try it again. I recommend you remove anything plugged into those ports while doing this.
