    printer drivers

    I don't have a CD-Rom drive anymore (using an ultar-light portable now) and can't load the printer driver for the LasfJet 3100 I would like to use. But I might have transferred it over years ago when I had a desk top. Is there any way I can search to see if the printer driver might be on the hard disk somewhere -- either installed or uninstalled?

    Thanks!

    Without knowing the name of the driver file it could be an interesting ride - but you can search the hard drive for *HP*.EXE and *HP*.INF to see if anything turns up.

    If you have an Internet connection (Oh! you do as you've posted here! <img src=/S/stupidme.gif border=0 alt=stupidme width=30 height=30>) (I added that after previewing my post! <img src=/S/woops.gif border=0 alt=woops width=58 height=36>). you could try the HP web site and download the driver from there.

    Emile is right and you would probably find the newer Driver Version to download, which is even better.

    Who you calling "Emile", them's fightin' words where Ah comes from! <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Actually I wish I was that clever! He was French novelist and what we would now call an activist, in many ways The Real Emile . I just happen to love his quote which forms my signature.

    All the best,
