Question about HP Deskjet 2460 Printer
Would like to know if there is a workaround that i could do
to run whp 2460 inkjet printer on an win 98 machine.
any reply regarding the matter would be highly appreciated.
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.
