Windows 7: HP Laserjet 4 driver

HP Laserjet 4 driver

I had trouble finding how to get my HP Laserjet 4 printer to work in Windows 7.

My research indicates it would run in Vista using built in drivers, but I didn't have or use Vista. I also tried driversguide, and HP site just says "supported"

When I used one of the available earleir drivers I always get the error message:
"W2 INVALID PERS"

OK Solved it now. Lots of drivers in a package for HP laserjets. Go to the Windows Update page and download the package; here:
Microsoft Update Catalog

Any chance you still have those files? I have been trying to get the driver off the site all morning and it keeps failing.

HP Laserjet 4 Drivers

HI,

2 ways to add the printer.

First, you can go to Microsoft Update Catalog and then search for the drivers and download them.

Second, when you go to add your printer, select "not in list" and then when the list of printers comes up, click on "Windows Update".

It will likely take a few minutes before the printer list reappears. Once it does, go down, click on HP and the Laserjet 4 will now appear.

Go ahead and install.

Now... if anyone knows how to get the laserjet 4 driver for Windows 7 added to my Server 2003 share... so that i can install the printer over my home network without individually manually adding it on each of my 3 machines, that would be cool.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

I was able to use my Laserjet 4 with no problem. Just go to "add a printer" and select "windows update." There will be a selection for the Laserjet 4.

HP laserjet 4

I found the drivers but couldn't find a cable.
I purchased a IOGear GUC1284B USB to Centronix cable which installed just fine, but the system (Win 7 Pro 64 bit) doesn't see the printer hanging on the end of the cable.

Any suggestions, please?

Bought it in 1993, keep it well maintained, and it prints beautifully and unbelievably inexpensivly! And I don't want to give any of that up!

Now - any ideas on a cable that will work - drivers don't seem to be the issue - I found and installed drivers for Windows 7 64bit for HP LaserJet 4

Thanks,

I completed the driver update via the menu option add a printer. Updated the printer list and selected HP Laser Jet 4 Plus. It downloaded and my computer "sees" the printer, but nothing is printing. Anyone have any ideas?

How did you connect it to the computer - that is my problem.

I have a real kludge solution - I have it connected to a Win 2000 computer on the network and print to it that way - until the network connection drops which it does after avery print job or so it seems.

I need a reliable way to connect this reliable old workhorse to a Win 7 64 bit system!

Thanks,

John

Help on HP Laserjet 4

I also found the driver and installed it. It prints, but the only problem is I use it to print checks and it is saying a certain font isn't installed. I looked on my old computer and there are tons more options under printer features that refers to bitmap and none under the windows 7. Please help I need to print vendor checks. I want to say it has to do with the driver for windows 7 but hp is not help! Thanks!
