HPE-201f computer no parallel port

Bought a used HPE-201f but it does not have a parallel printer port 25 pin for my old Hp lazer printer. Can i just install a Parallel card in the computer and install drivers etc. ?

check if your motherboard has a parallel pinout. It'll be cheaper than getting a PCI card as then you just need this:
Newegg.ca - StarTech PLATE25F 25-pin Parallel to 25-pin Header Slot Plate
No drivers required iirc.
