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 can make Harvard Grapics 98 compatible with windows 7?


Hi and welcome u_bolch !

Unfortunately , this product is no more compatible beyond Windows XP .

There is a 3 workaround solution :

solution one :
If you have the W XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of W XP on your machine from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/
solution two :
If you still have the install disc , you can also partition your primary and install W XP on the new partition from http://download.cnet.com/Partition-Wizard-Home-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html.
solution three :
I have installed Win XP on my secundary and it runs fine .

Back up your data first.

Have a nice day ,
Best regards,
Fanaudi .

If you have lost you cd or don't know how to install your printer or even if If you are having trouble getting your printer to comunicate with your computer, then all you need to do is download the drivers and software from the manufactures website that suits your operating system and printer.

  • Leave printers USB cable disconnected from computer until newly installed software requests it to be connected.

Canon PIXMA iP1800 InkJet Photo Printer for windows 98


I think I will save you some time telling you that there is no driver for Pixma IP1800 running on Windows 98/ME.

The printer had been built to work on windows XP/Vista, and drivers for 98 were never made.

Here or here you find two of the many threads on Win 98 driver for Pixma IP1800, all of them end in nothing. I can speak portuguese, the links wrongly provided are drivers for XP, and won't work on 98, and there is also no brasilian website distributing drivers for this printer on win 98, that was just a legend.

This printer won't work on Windows 98.

HP2460 on win98


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.
