HP LJ4L Printer w/a HP SJ 5100C Scanner

The 4L printer plugs into the scanner but I cannot print.  I must unplug the scanner and plug the printer directly into the port to use it and vice versa when I want to use the scanner.  And I do have a 1284 cable.  I called HP Help and they said to download a PCL driver from their website - however - all their drivers (for HP LJ4L) are for OS/2, DOS, or Windows 3.0 or 3.1.1.  I am running Windows 95.  Is there anything I can do to make both products work while connected together and without having to unplug/plug each device?  Thanks a million !

The reason you can't find a driver for 95 at the site is that 95 comes with the proper driver for the 4l on the 95 CD.

I checked the Microsoft page and the Service Pack 1 update seems like it may work.  It specifies LJ Series 4 and 5 printers that have known problems.  I'm going to try it and, hopefully, this will work.  Thanks so much for pointing me in the right direction!  :)

You can only install service pack 1 if you have the retail version of 95 if you are running osr2 you will downgrade your system,please verify this before installing.

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

(How'd that post twice?  hmmm)  Yes, I have the retail version - thanks for pointing that out.  How do I close-out this problem?  This is my first time using this service...next time I'll do better with the points when I ask a question now that I know how it all works.  I felt the points needed to be increased for this question, so I did.  Thanks so much !

Go ahead and post an answer and I'll accept it.  I posed the same question to HP and they couldn't help me (and it's their product!).  You were able to help and I appreciate that... thx
