I have an assembled PC 486 & an HP deskjet 400 printer(a local one, no network connection). The printer prints from any DOS based program, but not from any windows 95 application. I tried uninstalling & then reinstalling Windows 95, but the problem persists. The error displayed is : Problem with LTP1 ... retry, cancel. I have used the windows 95 default drivers to set up a new printer, but still it doesn't work. I don't have the printer driver diskette, which i had recd. when i purchased the printer.

My HPDJ400 printer does not print from Windows 95, but prints very well from DOS. So far I have tried out the foll. things to make it work.
1. Installed a new HPDJ400 series driver downloaded from HP site.
2. Deleted/Added port.
3. Tried various other drivers such as HPDJ,HPdj500 etc.(windows
   in-built drivers)
4. Connected the printer power cable directly to power supply.
Still, it doesn't print from Windows 95

I attached printer to another m/c & it prints very well from Windows98. There's nothing wrong with the Printer or the cable.

Could there be a memory problem ? I have the foll. configuration : PC486,16MB memory, CDROM, Modem & Speakers, Colour Monitor. When I fire a print job from Windows95, the error it gives is : Error writing to LPT1. The printer could be offline or not connected... Actually, the printer is ONLINE & when I cancel the printing job, it resets itself.

Please solve my problem. I don't have the printer's original driver (the one I got when I bought the printer) & I am also not getting it anywhere.
