Had HP laser 5 for years and was working untill I downloaded a driver detective program. It would not let me go into outlook either but that was just the short cut. I erased the program from the uninstall change programs list created a new short cut for outlook (which is working fine now) but cannot get the computer to find the HP printer I have another color printer that works fine.

You can manually re-add the printer w/o having the computer detect it.

goto pinter and faxes --> click add printer --> under local printer deselect the automatically detect option, continue the wizard you will have to specify the Lazerjet 5 from the list.

Are there any specific drivers for the USB-Parallel adapter? If there are, uninstall and reinstall those.
