Windows 7: Driver needed for HP LaserJet 3150

I know that my solution is somewhat involved but at least it works for ANY printer that can be made to work in a virtual machine. It all works because Acrobat renders a print document accurately no matter where it is produced.

In addition, I can fully utilize the HP Laserjet 3100 including its scanning facilities in Windows 7. The tricky part was to get the parallel port expansion board to work on the newest motherboards which did require using VMWare player because the other virtual machine products do not support parallel ports very well. Otherwise it would have been a breeze.


Addendum: Whereas under Vista the HP Laserjet 2 drivers could be used to print (300 DPI only) across the network to a system running a shared 3100 or 3150, this doesn't work under Windows 7 anymore. Therefore the only way, I am aware of, to continue to use these reliable, inexpensive and otherwise highly functional printers is via the method I described in this thread.

Hi sorry this has nothing to do with your printer, but I noticed you have the SB CT 4780 .. did you find drivers for this card? Any help for me?

I don't have this card as it appears to be an old Soundblaster live. However, I came across this post recently that just might help you:

I ended up finding one that worked without the unsigned driver bootup, but i can only get 4.1, and if I try to mess with the settings, I get massive amounts of bass. adanzig, does your driver work with 5.1?

I only have a two speaker setup so don't know if the driver I have will work better for you. All I can tell you is that it works great with my very old speaker setup. I'm currently booted into XP and don't have access to the driver name and number so I can't post it here for you but I'll get back on here once I boot up into 7 to let you know more details about it. Did you try the driver that regli posted the link to a couple messages up from this one?

OK, looked at my driver and here's all the information that I could tell you from it:

It's called LiveDrvUni-Pack(ENG). The product name is Sound Blaster Live! Driver Pack II and the file is
23.3 MB in size. If you want me to get a copy to you just let me know and I'll post it on my skydrive for your to download. I also have the SB game port driver files, which is a separate file and installation.

Between work and the girlfriend, I haven't made it home to try out, but I will give it a shot tonight and let you know how it goes. Thanks

Hello,

Could you please let me know where I could download these drivers from?

Just upgraded to Win7 and it did not recognize the sound card at all.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Grevesz, just looked at this thread and found your unanswered post. Did you ever find your SB drivers? I have them if you still need them.
