YES yes indeed you can, the port you are referring to is the RS232C port, it was the USB of the time. All you have to do, is obtain a cable, and software, most likely the software will have to be installed and run as Administrator, and have Compatibility Mode set for XP SP2. But apart from that it should work well.
Also you may even be able to use a USB- serial converter dongle? You will have to check that out.

I have a Compaq Presario laptop with a broken


Hi:
Just plugging in the monitor to your VGA port on the laptop won't make it display. You have to toggle to the exteral display, or both. Usually you have to hold down your function key, and then hit the external display key. It could be F1 thru F8, depending on your laptop model. Mine is F6. If you toggle thru the modes, your CRT should display . The missing pin is no concern!

My old compaq presario wont read my scan disc


Can you use that port to read any other device?What operating system are you using?Did it work previously?Windows 98 you will have to install drivers.Chances are that old computer has a usb 1.0 so it might not work.However try another device in that port or any usb port on the computer to see if any ports are working.Does your scan disk work on another computer.Have you done a windows update recently.Make sure you try all the above.
Good luck

windows xp, yes. just look for printers which support windows xp.

you may have to upgrade your ram, but many hp machines (as well as other brands) will support pentium II's (10 year old technology) as long as they have 128megs of ram and a usb port. you may also have to update internet explorer (prolly to register the new printer).

the hardware interface matters only when it comes to printer port v/s usb, and most laptops and printers made in the last 5 years will all support usb. make sure the printer does not specify usb 2.0 in its minimum requirements, as this is a fairly new usb standard which was not around 5 years ago.

otherwise, make sure your laptop supports the other minimum requirements for the printer, as the printer's software may not load if the minimum requirements are not meant.

personally, i would recomend an hp, and a simple one at that; the more bells and whistles (such as flash card readers) the harsher the minimum requirements will be.

Ethernet not working! Help!


im assuming its not dissabled, if not then go to control panel, network connections and right click on your network card and go to properties then driver and see if there is a code 9 meaning it's faulty or the device is working. if it is faulty then it's part of the motherboard anyway and you will have to buy a pcmcia network card and connect through that instead
