    Hello, i'm very, very, frustrated I just bought a used HP deskjet 520 printer and when I tried to install it I found out my windows 98 disk didn't install the driver for it so i've been all over the internet looking for a driver. Can anyone help me please? Also I need step by step instructions on how to install the driver file as i'm pretty much computer illiterate. Thank you all so very much Sharron lynn

    Hi sharron lyn,

    www.hp.com

    Will have your drivers. They might come in two parts
    of 1.44 Megs - so you can create floppies.

    Go to Support, or Drivers. It may say it's for
    Win95, but they will work.

    Welcome to TSG.

    It doesn’t appear HP still provides the driver software for that printer. This is the only page that would have it and it just refers you to instructions for installing the software that comes with the printer: http://h20015.www2.hp.com/en/softwa...c=en&softitem=Microsoft Windows 98&sw_lang=en

    Win98 has the driver for that printer. Go to Start>Settings>Printers>Add Printer. Select Local Printer, then select HP from the manufacturer list on the left and scroll down the model list on the right. Click on "HP Deskjet 520 printer", hit Next and it should install the driver.

    I just checked and my Win98SE computer has the Deskjet 520 driver – I’m reasonably sure the standard Win98 does as well.

    Sorry, I edited my first post. I thought I could get you to the driver, but I guess Slipe already tried it, too, and went further on the link than I.

    Maybe I was too fast on the keyboard, or maybe it's the beer I been dirnkin'.

    Follow the instructions, as was posted. That's how you learn stuff and it'll be fun.

    Howdy again

    Here's a link to a driver that should work...go to step three and click download now...save it to your desktop or anywhere you can find it again easily...

    520 driver

    when the new hardware wizard asks for the drivers or the location of them click browse and point to the location that you saved the drivers to

    good luck
