Each and every time I reboot win95 I lose my printer drivers and have to reinstall them. This problem started to show up after I installed the win95 patch some moons ago.
I'm running win95 4.00.950
I've tried to go the the hp web site for new drivers, but the win95 supports this printer and no new drivers are available. Besides it used to work before the patch upgrade.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try this, after you get the printer working go to the Device Manager by rightmouseclicking on MyComputer.  The second tab is Device Manager.  Go to the Printer section and click on the plus sign to open the branch to your printer.  Click on any and all printers listed here and remove them using the 'remove' button.  Shutdown and turn off all of your computer hardware.  Make sure your cables are all plugged in and secure on both the printer and computer sides of the cable.  Another thing to check would be to look for bent pins on the printer cable connectors on both sides.  After the cable is secure on both ends turn the printer on.  Now turn the computer on...if Plug-n-Play works, it should detect your printer and install drivers.  If not try AddNewHardware in control panel.  By removing your printer manually through Device Manager, you could delete some bad registry entry for your printer that could be fixed when you restart and get a new entry.
