    Same problem

  • cjb521 Nov 14, 2008

    I have a new laptop (Toshiba) which has only USB ports. That won't work on my old HP deskjet 540, which is a parallel printer. Got an adapter cable that converts parallel to USB, but how to convince the 'pooter to use it ?

    Need a driver that wont trip over the converter and fall on its (inter)face. A disk came with the cable . . . FLOPPY disk. Guess what new machine does not have a floppy drive. AAARGH!

    So it does. Why even list it. Thanks HP.

    Thanks for taking the time to rate the response.
    I'd like to let you know that the ;'Thanks for Trying' rating is somewhat misleading in it meaniing. It's really a negative review which has the effect of bringing down my rank and rating. Something I work very hard at to keep up, as it is really my only reward for supplying free advice online.
    In this case a 'Helpful' would have been more appropriate since the shortfall was HP's not myself. Even not rating would be preferable.

    Just for future reference,

The 540 is not supported in Vista. the best you can do is compatibility mode.

You can follow Hp's Installing and Configuring an Alternate Driver in Windows Vista. Click this link provided by HP.

Before you follow though with Hp's alternet driver site. Please run windows update for Vista un till no updates are left. If your printer still fails to run correctly than try HP's alternate drive.

Good luck & kind regaurds..
