Question about HP LaserJet 5L Printer
I have just bought a new desktop with Vista and a cable to connect to the LJ 5L, which worked perfectly on my previous pc running XP. Have you any ideas as to what the solution is? Could it be the cable or is Vista incompatible with the LJ 5L?
Yes. Your product is supported. Drivers for HP printers are included with the Microsoft Windows Vista Operating System
HP has a Windows Vista driver solution available for your product. This driver will enable your product's basic functions to work. HP is committed to providing the best experience for HP products in the Windows Vista operating environment. You can conveniently find this driver in your Windows Vista operating system, today. At this time the driver will only be available on the Windows Vista operating system through the “Add a Printer�? wizard there is an alternative for this
remove all the drivers from add and remove program then
click start, then "run" type regedit, hit enter Registry Editor will open up.
Make backup of you registry, then on left side drill down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors
and check if you have "USB Monitor" key defined - If yes, you have different problem, this will not solve your problem. If not - right click on "Monitors" then click on new/key and name new key "USB Monitor" and then open this new key and on right side of the Registry editor under the (Default) right click select New - String Value this will create REG_SZ type value and name it "Driver" then double click to open it and in value data type "usbmon.dll"
Do the same thing to "Local Port" and "Standard TCP/IP Port" keys if you don't have them under Monitors key but you have them listed under AutorunsDisabled key. Then close registry editor, and restart, go to add printer/ local printer
