Need a driver for xp designjet 230 that works!

I have a hp Designjet 230.  I just bought a Dell Optiplex gx270s with XP PRO Service pack 3 in the hope of using this printer.  Windows supposedly has the right driver, but when the new hardware found box is in place, the result is a step to go. I downloaded the driver xp Hp PL532en, pointing the installation in this folder ends with a message "unable to install".  The search to the internet with the installation program does not work either.  This printer has always worked on xp.  What gives?


I'm sure that you read and followed all the instructions on the download page of hp (which curiously do not refer the wizard 'new hardware found'), but I suspect there's a bit more to this error message.  Could you please provide it in its entirety?

Windows XP includes drivers for DesignJet 230: one for (D/A1) and the other for (E/A0).

What happens when you follow this sequence:

1. with printer and computer off, connect the printer to the computer (BTW, this printer connects using the parallel port - a connector 25-pin Centronics - OK?)
2. turn the printer on and stabilize
3. open computer and let stabilize.  Cancel the new hardware found Wizard opens.
4. click on start > printers and faxes > add printer
5. in the Add Printer Wizard, select "Local printer attached to this computer" and uncheck "automatically detect and install my plug and play printer."
6. Select "Use the following port", then the correct port in the drop-down list (probably LPT1)
7. Select the correct driver for the HP DesignJet 230
8. finish the wizard.

  • Is there a driver for HP Scanjet 5370C that works for Windows 7?

    I have upgeaded from Win XP to Windows 7 and HP scanner does not work. HP doesn't have a driver to Win 7 support.

    I recently inherited a HP DesignJet 750 c more.  Its still in great condition and I think that works.  I bought a new cable for it this week and foolishly taken I'd be able to download a driver for it on the HP website.  Due to the age of the machine, it seems to be more supported.  Help someone!  I need a driver for this product download or it is completely useless!   And it's that it was not clear, I don't have the original CD.  Help!

    HP has really screwed the instructions on this one. You must search a directory 'win - x 64-hpgl2-drv' directory will be without quotes and on mine, it was located in the downloads directory. This directory will be inf file you need.

    It seems that there is no driver for Realtek rtl8192se WLan Linux and card rtl8191se.
    Had someone managed WLan installation by installing ndiswrapper from synaptic in Ubuntu + GUI. He downloaded the net8192se.sys driver W2K and net8192se.inf.

    Which driver? You plug the USB cable and it shows up as an external drive - computer should recognize pretty good right now. Then, you use the software that came with it (Media Go) or Windows Media Player, iTunes or what and send your music files to it. You can even drag and drop MP3 files into the music using Windows Explorer folder.

  • We need a replacement for Windows Home Server that does not cost $700

    We need a replacement for windows home server that does not cost as much as a PC. 2011 is not really available and 2008 has compatibility problems, because it is based on XP and Server 2003. None of the motherboard manufactures will support XP (thanks to MS) and more recent SATA drives do not work in my motherboard more old.


    This issue is beyond the scope of this site (for consumers) and to be sure, you get the best (and fastest) reply, we have to ask either on Technet (for IT Pro) or MSDN (for developers)

    I NEED A DRIVER for MY OLD BENQ DVD DD DW 1650 HELP if you please. I would like to burn DVD & CD

    I would go as far as to say that you you need a third-party software to burn the DVD. XP should be able to burn CDs, but I recommend the use of third party for both DVD and CDsoftware. I hope that this will have been provided with your PC and/or an optical drive.

    Keep away from products of packet writing if you can (for example, Nero InCD), I found that it is a very reliable way of writing optical media.
