Win95 printer driver for HP Deskjet 500
Posted on 1998-02-14
I just bought a computer (with Win95) and am having a lot of trouble installing a printer driver for the HP Deskjet 500. the printers.txt file that comes with Win95 says that Win95 does not support the 500 Series. Is there anything I can do -- I've looked at the Windows95 and the HP Website and they have no help for the 500 Series. Also, I called HP and spoke to a gentleman in the 'printer sales' division -- he wasn't much help and seemed totally oblivious to the problem. He recommended me to talk to the Tech Support folks and I still haven't been able to get through.
I'd really appreciate any help. I, somehow, find it difficult to believe that I might have to 'dump' a perfectly functional printer just because of an operating system change.
