Hi,

Probably the only way, since HP is not supporting Windows 98 anymore, is to use the Add New Hardware Wizard and then choose Printers, scroll down the maker column until you get to HP or Hewlett Packard, in the right hand column choose a printer model number with four digits starting with a 1. This is called dumbing down and it often works pretty good. There may be some print features you will be missing but you should be able to print. If one doesn't work, try another until you get an old driver that does work. This is what HP would tell you if you paid for their help.

Usually the HP Deskject 970c works, or if you see a plain entry for HP Deskjet try that too. It really is an Easter Egg Hunt.

How to install printer without cd.i have loss the installation cd. printer type HP Deskjet 2460 InkJet Printer. TQ


HP posts all of their drivers and software on their website for free download. Just go to http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=2510767#N677
and click on the "basic driver" download and install it (this link will take you directly to your printer's driver). That should get you up and running.

Good luck!

HP doesn't list a driver for 98se. Windows 2000 is as far back as it lists.

It would be better for me, as far as an alert to your follow up questions are concerned if you would use the comment box below to reach me. Thanks.

In your list of ports to assign your printer to, there should be a virtual USB port.

Do you see that in your port list?

Normally, when connecting a USB printer, the software involved requires that the USB cable be unattached, and then when prompted you connect the cable. This allow the installation software creates the virtual port.

That me know about this. And please use the comment box below.
