Hi,
I have an old HP Deskjet 9300 printer and I am trying to install it on one of my two PCs, one runnining on Win 7, the other - on Win 8.1 ...


On win8.1:
I've tried all the steps adviced in the (HP support forum), but I still can't install it.

What happens:

1. I add a printer in "devices and printers" on LPT1 port
2. I plug in the printer in the usb
****( !!no recognition from windows - like automatic installation)
anyway I try to choose USB port instead of LPT 1 in the printer properties
**** (!! there is no such option in the drop down menu for ports - only LPT1, LPT2, COM1,COM2 etc.)

Any ideas?

Yup she's an oldie but a goodie. Or was. For a couple of Canadian C notes I got an M252DW that made life so much easier. My days of messing with ports are done. (Well, sorta)

here's the PDF manual of the HP deskjet 9300 series printer direct from HP's web site.
it can connect to either an LPT1 or USB port (or even through a network/LAN connection)

problem is with the drivers since that printer was made back in the early 2000s (the XP era)
Vista/Win7/Win8.x might have built-in drivers for it but requires a manual install



thank you. The first part - i did it. It's the same as adding a new printer... But "run as admin" - I don't know how to do that. Have a nice day. Thanx.

Run as administrator topic - read this

Compatibility mode might be worth looking into.
